skater skirt outfit for school
 A few days after I came back from Seattle, I went to orientation for college! I was so nervous the days leading up to it because I'm really shy and I thought I would have a hard time putting myself out there, but I was actually able to make a lot of new friends. After the first 30 minutes of being there and talking to people, the fear just went away and now I'm even more excited to start school. (Ahhh move-in day is in a month!)

And Happy National Ice Cream Day! Hahahah I didn't eat any ice cream today, but I did eat ice cream three times yesterday (oops....) So I guess I celebrated national ice cream day eve!

    I have my orientation at the end of this month and I'm so excited!! I'm really shy as well, so I'm super nervous but I've heard they play a lot of "ice breaker" games, so hopefully I'll be able to make a lot of friends as well haha

    You pull off that camo top so well. I love the tied-look. How did you tie your shirt? I wanted to try that the other day but I couldn't figure out how to do it haha ><

  10. haha, I'm with you there on ice cream day--I had ice cream the day before it, actually, when I was in Nashville with my parents and brother and his girlfriend. We al enjoyed it in the slightly hot day. ;)

    I love this skirt paired with your top. They were meant to be!

  14. I had a very similar experience during my college orientation! I was (and still am) super shy so I thought I'd have zero fun...quite the opposite happened!
    Love the camo top and the necklace! You look great :)

  16. Ohhh, you're going to do just fine in college Joyce, I know it!
    Who couldn't love you :D
    Plus, when you dress so stylishly, that'll always make people want to know more about you. Haha, love the combination of those sandals and skirt with the tough camo tee <3

  20. National ice cream day! What?! I need to eat some now in celebration of it. Even if it is belated. And how exciting, 1 month until you move into college! I'm sure you'll make even more friends and have an absolute blast. Good luck with it all Joyce

  21. It's so exciting to hear about your soon-to-be college experience; it's a nice reminder of the time I spent in college. And I can totally relate because I was shy at first, too. But isn't it nice how open everyone is to making new friends? I had found my best college friends on the very first day I moved into the dorms, and I have no doubt you'll find lifelong friends there, too. Life is fun like that sometimes :)
    Anyway, enough of me sounding like an old lady. Your outfit is so smart! I love its simplicity. You look chic as always, Joyce.
    A quick question about those sandals - are they comfortable to walk around in for long periods? I've been considering buying that exact pair because I need some comfy summer sandals that won't hurt after walking for a couple hours :) I'd love to get your insight before I take the plunge ;-)

    1. Hi Kym!

      I can walk with them for around 3 hours-ish. If I'm walking around in the city (with hills), I can't walk for too long (maybe an hour). But if I'm going shopping at the mall, I can wear them the whole time with no problem (4 hours). They are kind of like flip flops in that they don't really give too much support, but they aren't uncomfy. (As in they don't pinch my toes or ankles). But I still like them since they are so easy to slip on!

    2. I'm glad to hear that! Thank you so much for such a helpful and wonderfully detailed review :) Not pinching toes or ankles is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. Lack of support I can handle. Blistered or cut up toes and ankles I cannot. ♥ ♥ ♥

Thank you for commenting :) I love reading them!
