What I Wore: While I Disappeared

I'M SORRY! I'm so so so so so so so sorry! I can't believe it's been like three weeks since I last posted! I do have honestly good reasons why I haven't been around, but since you probably don't have too much patience with me at the moment, I won't bore you all to death with stories about amazing drama festivals, epic environmental science competitions, trying not to fail all my classes, having strange epiphanies about my life, and all the other stuff that has been occupying my life lately. Suffice to say, I've been busy.

I may have been busy lately, but the always warming weather has had me wearing some pretty awesome outfits. Today's wasn't anything too special, but it does reflect the direction my style is moving towards fairly well.
Jeans, KappAhl; shirt, Smart Set; sandals, Birkenstock; anklet, ???; brown leather bracelet, won in a contest; painted leather bracelet, "borrowed" from my little brother; hemp bracelets, handmade by me; bandanna, ???, H&M maybe, got it in Sweden about 8 years ago

I've been wearing bandannas a lot lately, and I definitely want to get more, since the only two I have are this one and a blue wave patterned one. I had stopped wearing them a while back when a friend commented that he liked my hair down, but I realized a little while back that it's my head, and that I like bandannas. So much as I respect his opinion, I'm going to keep on wearing bandannas.

I've taken to wearing this anklet with my Birkis, pretty much just cause. Another of my latest obsessions has been to wear all the hemp bracelets I own, along with my two leather bracelets, stacked on my right wrist. I went on a huge bracelet making kick last summer or the summer before (they all run together in my head), and I still had some of them laying around, so I decided to put them to use. The huge white beads on the bracelet on the far left are pretty cool, they are white, but when exposed to UV light they turn purple.

Over all, my style has gotten a bit more laid back lately. I've been wearing a lot of outfits that are sort of simple, shirt plus skirt/jeans sort of thing. I've also been gravitating away from my super short skirts and moving more towards below knee length, flowing skirts. Not entirely obviously, but I've gotten sort of sick of having everyone stare all the time (I said sort of!). Mini skirts are also sort of hard to wear, and I found myself sitting in class always nervously pulling my skirt down. ANYWAYS, point being that my style has changed a bit, and I can't wait to see where it goes.
