The Forever 21 Suit is Back




Headband, scarf, sweater vest, button up: F21, Jeans: Belk, Boots: Madden Girl
So, I think I should have named this blog, "How to Dress in Forever 21 Everyday." Is that catchy?
I took the day off yesterday, 1) because I wore a suit...all day long...because I had to look really professional yesterday...and it wasn't my most stylish of outfits and 2) because it. was. FREEZING! Seriously, like frozen mist and under 40 degrees all day. My weak little Florida self just couldn't take it. So naturally, as soon as I got home I ditched the suit and refused to stick so much as a pinky outdoors the rest of the night. Unfortunately, this morning was no warmer and I was scarcely dressed for the weather. Mr. weatherman...where is my 56 and sunny? It definitely didn't show it's face on Florida State's campus. Ok, I'm done with complaining.
Ok, so actually, I'm not. I got my first parking ticket at FSU today. I cried...then I called Dusty and cried some more. He was sympathetic. I assure you, I didn't intend to illegally park. I parked in what I thought was a parking space between two other spaces. There was mud under my car when I got out and the lot was dirty from all the rain, so basically, it looked like about half of the other spots on the lot. Apparently, I was parking on the lawn/landscaping. Perhaps there was a blade of grass that counted. The landscaping crew needs to step it up in that lot. The worst part was that there was ZERO parking left at 10:30 and I was 15 minutes late to my next class.
If you made it through this little sob story, I apologise for being a whiny butt. Be glad you don't know me in real life. It tends to happen. And now I'm off to go look over some more {long} court cases...you have to do that for Courts, who knew?
Have a smashing night everyone!
Love,
Ramsey
P.S. I don't know what was up with the hands glued to the jacket thing. Let's just blame it on the cold. They got frozen that way.

Thanks for your comment! You totally make Forever 21 look rich!! :) I'm jealous that you can dress casually. SUCH cooler outfits can be made from that!

Gertrude said...

Gorgeous!! Love the headband :)

The weather here is 60 deg here .. and it's cold for us hehe! So sorry about the ticket .. at my uni people have to arrive there like 45min before class to manage to find a parking! x

Hope said...

Thanks for the comment! No way, you make F21 look rich! That outfit is awesome. I'm jealous that you get to wear casual stuff sometimes, its more fun!

Just found your blog via elanor's and it's adorable! You have a new fan : )

A few years ago all I bought was Forever 21. Then things started falling apart and I was getting more and more frustrated. I figured instead of buying items that fall apart and having to buy more I'd invest in some quality items. Have I learned my lesson? Not really. I still love Forever 21 :D

Angela said...

You are a master layerer... a master at layering... whatever! Love your style! :)

I love your sweater vest, it looks adorable on you!
I feel so sorry for you about the parking ticket! Seems a bit unfair to get a ticket for something that was unclear in the first place.... a warning or something would have made more sense.

Other potential blog name - the layering queen! because, seriously, friend you have a serious ability to layer. Love it!

Law Mama said...

Ugh, I hate parking tickets. Especially when you couldn't have known better. Maybe you can appeal it? Might be worth a try since their spots aren't clearly marked.

Also, you look totes adorbs.

kileen said...

i love your layering! this corduroy jacket is so cute and it reminds me that i need to wear mine more too!

and that parking ticket is really unfair. maybe you should take a picture of the spot and contest it. our school parking police was pretty lenient and if you contested anything you basically won. maybe it's the same at FSU...

and stay warm out there! hopefully this cold front will be leaving soon.

Ok, if you're changing the name of your blog, I am too, to "How to fill your closet with things from Target when you went to pick up shampoo."

I've been pulling on my hair all day long hoping it will grow long enough for me to do it in an ADORABLE side braid like yours. To no avail.

OH! And my husband an I watched Dinner for Schmucks the other night too! I agree with your assessment.

Sandy a la Mode said...

i love how you paired everything together!! and F21?! it's a great place for afforable stylish clothing for sure!!

Brittany said...

aww I really love your layering and hey, I love f21 because I'm not one to spend loads of money. Plus, F21's quality is getting better! I love that scarf too!

Ashley Rae said...

Don't worry Ramsey, I totally get you on the too cold to be outside deal. While you're wishing for 56 degrees, I can't bear anything less than 65! And I don't care if I sound spoiled, it's the California girl in me! Lol.
And if it doesn't get any warmer in Florida, just come visit Southern California next week. I hear it's gonna hit the 80's!

I noticed today at school, parking is always scarce when the semester starts back. Give it a week max, and you'll find parking spots again. (Knock on wood,) I still haven't gotten a parking ticket yet and I'm using my old parking pass from last school year! Yikes. I always cringe every time I see the security guys.
But I love the Forever 21! You're so cute!

Kate said...

How do you format pictures to be side by side like you do here?
