in the jungle, the mighty jungle...

Dress down day! What beautiful words. Wore this on dress down day, AKA I didn't have to wear my uniform. Whilst getting ready in the morning, I was solely looking at my jeans and shorts, because I decided that I didn't want to stick out like a sore thumb. For "fun" I decided to try on my purple skirt.. and then my cheetah tights! I was seriously not going to wear this because, literally, everyone wears a) leggings + long tee, b) jeans + tee, or c) uniform because they forgot. But then I thought, "screw them!" I marched down the halls, loud and proud. I'm the king of the jungle! (Haha, I feel like I should reference something, but I don't know what.) So if anyone actually reads this, the moral of the story is wear what you want and don't care about what other people think. (I'm so amazingly cheesy.)

I don't usually have direct inspiration from my outfits, but I couldn't resist trying this whole double print thing after checking it out on Wendy's blog.

Question: why is it always cheetah print? Why not leopard? How discriminatory!

Speaking of leopards, Hallowe'en is soon (you know, because people dress up as leopards for Hallowe'en and.. um.. anyways..) I went to Value Village today to go Hallowe'en costume shopping and I was so uninspired! I hate the generic $30 costumes (what a rip off!) so I didn't get one. But, I don't know what to be. I'm actually really excited for Hallowe'en because I finally recruited someone - after two years! - who is willing to go Trick-or-Treating with me. Um, party or free candy? I say free candy!

Anyways, I'm pretty big on Hallowe'en because I love to dress up. Mean Girls says that Hallowe'en is a chance for girls to dress slutty, but I say it's a chance for us to dress up in crazy costumes! (Last year I was a fat chicken. I was pretty pleased with myself.)

So, What are you being for Hallowe'en? What should I be for Hallow'een?! I'm desperately seeking for ideas!
Thanks for stopping by! Will visit blogs soon!

Cute tights! You always seem to find sweet patterned ones. & Yeah, I find Mean Girls to be right when it comes to my town. I haven't found a girl my age who dresses my age yet O_o ... anyway, I'm going as Minnie Mouse!

Little Sophie said...

crazy outfit, but it works.
I'm going as a cow-girl this year, because, well, I'm a lazy ass.
and it's probably going to be a lame party, since no-one is goming.
we're not big on Halloween here in Holland.
wich is a shame, because I love to dress up as well.
last year I was a dark angel.
I even made wings out of cardboard.
those are very unpractical.
freinds of mine came as the seven dwarfs.

I love your outfit. I think the leopard tights look really great with your blue skirt. The belt also adds a nice touch. Awww, I think your outfit is so cute. You look adorable, sweetheart.

suzie said...

oh i like your outfit! it's funny that you had your dress down day today, since my school doesn't have uniforms and i wore something uniform like today and people were staring at me like wtf.. so i totally agree with today's cheesy lesson :)

Gabby said...

1. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS OUTFIT! The skirt, the tights, and that blazer!
2.A fat chicken? How did you do that?
3. Because you like to be different and have crazy costumes, why not be a crayon? How about a fashion crayon since you love color and your outfits are awesome.

Mine's a secret, you'll find out on Hallowe'en.

Thanks for all the comments!

Ahaha, I'm using halloween as a skank occasion since i'll be out on the town with my boyfriend; but nothing too raunchy, you know? Probably a jailmate, because my friend wants to be a cop lol (: Hope you have an awesome halloween since I probably wont; we have such an early curfew in my town!

Erika said...

There is nothing more fabulous at this very moment than your outfit. I'm in love. J'adore the way you are confident enough to mix prints - pinstripes, cheetah, etc. The result is always magical.

I think I'm going to be an Angel - though I've really no idea yet. Smart, right? One day before Halloween and my costume choice is still up in the air! :)

Kass said...

just4fun said...

You've got a great "combining-this-and-taht" talent!


Myriam said...

i really like your skirt and the way you smile in the photos! you're really nice

J & L said...

So glad you rocked cheetah. (Coming from a girl who owns cheetah shoes, pants, cardigans, and blazers). Best print EVER. And it looks great on you!!

Dress down days were always our favorite in high school, too, though we had REALLY strict dress codes so we couldn't do anything really fun/creative with our outfits.

P.S. We posted our potential Halloween costumes on the site if you want to check them out...
