posing in front of a kitchen does not make you more domestic

05-08-1005-08-10
thrifted dress, maison martin margiela mm6 waffle cardigan, zara platforms

Do you like my t-rex/raptor imitation? No idea what's going on with my arm there. In any case, this is what I wore yesterday. I don't know what made me want to actually get ready when all I did was work on a paper at home all day. I am currently sitting in front of my computer wondering if I should even bother showering. Nah, don't think so. Until 5pm tomorrow, I will be a slave to this computer working on inserting screenshots (seriously, why has this been the hardest and most tedious task I've done?) and finishing the last two pages of this paper for my anime class. This may be simultaneously the most fun and annoying paper I've ever written in my undergraduate career since I literally spent a month going through seven hours of materials countless times and another month figuring out what the hell I wanted to write. This course was easily the best one I've taken at Cal and it's even a major requirement!

sunday morning

Oh and, sunday morning breakfast: ricotta pancakes. Something so easy even I could make it (recipe here) but I didn't have to since I have an adorable boyfriend who comes over to my place and does it for me. I even got flowers last night! Unfortunately he's getting sick right now and I have finals to worry about so we won't really see each other this week. I'm waiting anxiously for Friday to come so I can finally finish this semester and maybe dedicate more time to this blog...

i too love the mug/outfit matchies. what could be cuter. also cool idea of pairing the tan shoes with the coloury outfit. wow, that sentence was definitely NOT full of correct fashion lingo. but you get it! :)

good luck on that paper, sounds super interesting. what did you end up doing it on? there's so much psychologically fascinating stuff going on with anime.

Lady Grey said...

i like your coffee mug!

Highdee said...

Haha, you are so hilarious. Kitchen pictures are awesome and red suits you really well.

steph j said...

CUTE! It's so sweet that your boyfriend cooks for you all the time. I think the best food related thing that my bf does is probably offer to pour a bowl of cereal..

Lovely outfit, great pictures (:

Neekoh said...

I love that this is so casual and doable and adorable! The shoes really dress it up quite nicely. And it also helps that I have a strange affinity for oversized cardigans, especially in red :)

XX,
Neekoh

Carey said...

daww-hh-hhg (said like Randy):

I hope this means that my always posing w/ a glass of wine/beer does not make me more appear to be more of a lush. But it probably does...

I'm sending you the energy of a bottomless Hawaiian Punch-flavored slurpee (go-to paper-writing sustenance) during your press for finals, but not the subsequent side effects, which I'll leave up to your imagination. Yay! Good luck--

Michelle Elaine said...

"Big head & little arms" - hehe that's what I think of when you say T-rex (from I believe Meet The Robinson's).

I tend to get dressed up when I don't need to, but I always forget to blog it.

KeepItFvncy,
M.E.

lumikha said...

cute sweater! also, looove that mug! :)

rinacatastrophe said...

I love those platforms, they're not super high and seem like they'd go with everything. Is it from this year? Or is it from the Zara of yesteryear that I'll never be able to find :( ?
