pick up the receiver - i'll make you a believer

Exams make my head hurt. Studying makes me want to scream. All I can think about is all the shopping/eating out/going out I want to do when I get home. 2 down, 2 to go, one week today I will be writing my last exam.
My style turns to crap during exam season. Yesterday I washed my hair for the first time in over 3 days. So ick. I wore this to pick up some Goldfish crackers and Starbucks (venti earl grey tea misto with soy milk, NO SYRUP) Even when I tell the baristas multiple times that I do not want vanilla syrup, 9 times out of 10 I end up getting it anyways.
I realize how unearthly pale I am in these pictures. My friends all call me a vampire, I'm white like a sheet. I used to be an avid tanner - I LOVED the sun and the look of tan skin, still do, but I decided this year to accept my God-given pale skin. The sun is so damaging, and sacrificing a tan now will be worth it when I have less wrinkles in 40 years. But... its easy enough to say that in the winter time, with summer around the corner, I can't promise I won't lie out a couple times!
I love this beanie, it looks like a sea anemone! I wore an H&M jacket, AA bodycon dress, MJ bag and GoJane shoes (this shoes are so comfortable but they are SO high that if I wear them with my nighttime outfits I look a little bit too much like a street walker). x E

  8. love the outfit!! i sooo don't look like that during exams haha!!
    as for starbucks, when they make your order wrong, you totally have the right to complain and normally what they're SUPPOSED to do is give you a coupon for a free drink the next time you visit (instead of re-making your order and thus making you wait longer!) ....ya i only know this cause i used to work there lol

    good luck on exams!! kill it!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I hate exams, too. But I love your outfit!! You look so chic.

    xox, mavi

  10. oh i love how pale you are! it looks so rock'n'roll...and youre not pale in a gross way either. i definitely think you should try to maintain your pale-ness all summer!

    ReplyDelete
  11. if we made a pale-leg contest, i'd win :D my legs don't tan at all and self tan cream doesn't help either.
    i wish i was that cool to go buying crackers in high heels, the next step i want to take are high heels at school

    ReplyDelete
  12. Don't worry hun, your skin is beautiful! If you want to see a very white pale girl, thats me. Plus you rock paleness with blonde hair.

    Not having time to do the simple things like was hair because of study is the pits.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Studying does GREAT things for you, darling! You look amazing!

  14. perfect outfit love it!!!! I have similar shoes from gojane superconfy 6 sexy..pale is the new tan ;-))

    ReplyDelete
  15. This is hottness.. Those shoes do look comfortable! And beanies are hot. I wish I could go 3 days without washing my hair. I have to wash it everyday or else it gets oily :(

    ReplyDelete
  16. Seriously so great looking! Those shoes are killer. I wish I could wear my gladiator 4 inch heels on a regular basis, and make it look as easy as you make it look.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ohh I love this outfit so much! Especially your hat :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. The purse is gorgeous and the beret is classic.
    :) I always love your pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have exams too :((( and all I want now is to stop learning! But I can't! :(((
    I like your killer shoes :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. You look gorgeous as always!
    And I'm in love with those shoes. The hat is adorable also.
    I'm happy you're more comfortable embracing your skin tone. Your hair is the perfect shade of blonde to make your skin seem refreshing, rather than pale.
    Speaking of sun-tanning, my cousin is obsessed with sunbeds. She even has one in her bedroom. At 28, her skin is now orange and leathery and hideous.
    I can see you're much too smart to be in that predicament.
    But yeah, it doesn't hurt to go out and sunbathe a couple times in the summer for fun. ;)

  29. I think Jak & Jill should feature you on their blog!! I love those shoes! I have pretty pale skin too and I wanted to get a tan but those sunless lotions hate me! No matter what brand I use, I always end up getting orange streaks. So I gave up and accepted my skin as it it.

  97. Ah! I hate exams to, though sadly mine are in early June. Which is ten times worse than now, because my brain will already be in summer =( Ah and I hate that my style pretty much goes during exams! Hoodies & Sweatpants, sad but true. (Or t-shirts and cotton shorts!)
    I love this outfit, and don't worry your skin looks perfectly lovely as it is! And at least you aren't fake and baking, that's a million times worse. And hey lay out in the sun all you want, with sunscreen, you should be fine =)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Thanks for the sweet lovely comment. I've had such a bad day today so it was nice to see. :)

  103. You know, I just re-read your post. And I realise I get the same problem too: the problem with the syrup. For me it happens at this cafe at my university where the guys always asks if I want syrup in my latte, I say no, and he puts it in anyway. It's like...???? I just don't get it. :x

    Thanks for your comment again. All the best with your exams :)
