If you’re a woman, and I’ll wager especially in a city, you’ll relate to this video on what it’s like to be a woman walking alone at night. (Somehow I haven’t developed any of these automatic defense mechanisms, and I wonder if that will change when I get older…)
Beatles Sweatshirt (gift) – Forever 21 (exact); Jeans – Ross (similar); Glitter Sneakers – Old Navy (girl’s, similar).
In case you missed it all over the news earlier this month, February marks the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ arrival to America. And while I wasn’t around to watch Ed Sullivan in 1964, this milestone still makes me feel kind of old. I remember going to an exhibit with my dad in seventh grade marking the Beatles’ first visit to Miami Beach (February 13, 1964) — and that’s already 10 years ago!
My first two years of high school, I feel like I lived in band tees – the Beatles, the Stones, the Doors. So this graphic sweatshirt, a Christmas gift from my brother, takes me back. (Hint: if you want an oversized look, size up — this is true to size.) Instead of pairing it with bootcut jeans and navy Converse (like 15-year-old Sarah would) I opted for electric blue skinnies (surprisingly versatile!) and glitter sneakers (better look here). It’s a comfy cool look perfect for a snowy day inside finishing of “House of Cards.”
In related news, I found a spot inside that’s well-lit enough for indoor photos. Because it’s too gross to venture outside if I don’t have to. Sorry, not sorry.
