Off The Grid

chiffon grid print tee c/o Calico, sheer-sleeved mint blazer: Calico (similar here) / distressed shorts: Shop Couturing / Balenciaga inspired cut out boots: Qupid / on my lips: 'Hang Up' by MAC Cosmetics / on my nails: 'Black Onyx' by OPI
Despite the corny "grid" pun in the title, I sometimes do wish I could go totally off the grid. My life has been going light speed since I started school a few weeks ago. And I'll be the first to tell you, nothing says "I need a nap" like "I have homework". Now, I know taking a nap isn't exactly going off the grid, but it's something like putting my phone on vibrate and dropping out for a few hours which is just enough for me.
I was running around a bit yesterday between classes and opted for a contrasting look, one with which I was more and more pleased every time I looked down. Maybe it's time for more than just all-black-everything this fall/winter?

  1. I love this look Ariel! And I totally understand where you're coming from. Right now homework and nap are also connected for me. All we can do is keep trying our best ♥
