rock 'n' roll high school

For whatever reason, I've had crappy luck with shopping lately. I'm in the market for a new "everyday" purse, but nothing wows me at the moment and, even with all the sales going on right now, no article of clothing has been worth the effort of trying on. Aren't I a Debbie Downer? I did, however, happen to discover this perfect summer top amongst the masses of discounted things at Anthropologie (sometimes, I feel like digging through their sale stuff is not at all dissimilar to thrifting - have to have the energy for it). Anyway, I could stand to add a few realistic staples like this top to my closet full of terribly unrealistic things.

Love the back of this top.

This wolf pendant is from a gallery in Beaver Creek, Colorado. My mom gave it to me for Christmas ages ago.

A couple readers asked for a close-up of these shoes I got via Chictopia Rewards.

Love the shoes -- like perfectly stylish foot bags! The most delightful combo of confusing and elegant. You look very chic and pretty here.

Im worse, everywhere I go shopping I round up a bunch of things and when it comes time to pay I decide I dont want/need any of the things afterall and leave everything behind. Everything is so uninspiring for some reason

I hate when I'm on the hunt for new clothes and can't find anything that I find appealing! Times like that are frustrating! Hopefully you can find the bag your looking for soon!

The back of that top is fantastic! I can't get enough of those bright colored sunglasses! And the shade of nail polish your wearing is great!!

Nadalyn Margaret said...

love the shoes! you should check out forever21 right now, they have some cute purses and if you pick the right one it wont look cheap!

J-Diggety said...

That outfit is my go-to all summer - when not at work, of course ;) LOVE the back of that tank - so rad!!
xoxo J

Jill said...

I agree--the back of the top is fantastic, though I love the front as well! Also, those cut-offs are great. I tried to make myself a pair last weekend and...it did not go well.

love the back of your top! and yes, sometimes any sales racks are like thrifting, if you put the energy into it you really get some good deals sometimes!

closet365 said...

Love this. I wish your outfit was what I was wearing right now. The back of the top and the shoes are just fabulous.

I have also had horrible shopping luck lately. Why don't the powers that be want us to spend money? I don't get it.

Daphne said...

The back of the top is so special and unexpected. A little surprise is always good in an outfit, I think.

Rachel said...

I love interesting backs on tops! This one is so perfect!

megannielsen said...

I'm not kidding you are seriously the coollest girl i know

Amy said...

I love your shorts and belt and the back of that top is so sweet x

Kimberellie said...

Love your sunnies as always. And you are right: perfect top. I have the same wardrobe problem: everything is quite impractical, esp. for hot weather!

And I also have been having the same everyday bag problem! I settled for a thrifted leather purse (very good deal actually). But I still am on the look out!

oh, and your matching toe nail polish?--fabulous.

Becca said...

Well aren't you just the picture of rock and roll summer chic!

Regarding your remark on Antrhopologie's sale section, I totally know what you mean. I've taken to stalking items until they make it to the sale rack so that I know what I want and what size I'll need even before it makes it to the sale section. I feel like sometimes their sale section is just such a mess that it makes everything look cheap, tacky, and undesirable.

I don't know how someone can look chic in a loose tank and cutoffs, but you're doing it. You look effortlessly cool. Love the twisted back!
