Happy Summer! The weather has finally settled in Chicago, at least most of the time, and it's been super awesome. I know I've been m.i.a for the past couple of months but I just finished my senior year of high school! Now I'm officially a college student, it's pretty crazy. I'll be moving to California this fall so I'll try to posts 'OOTD's because the weather here (and my suburban background) isn't really appealing, haha.
These outfits, or Polyvore sets, are some of my summer outfit inspirations. I can't wait to buy more pieces that are more on the experimental side (like some of the pieces in these sets). I'm not sure how to categorize these outfits. I'd like to call some of them flirty, classy, urban, bohemian, or whatever. I think these outfits show a spectrum of types of style.
Whoever came up with these outfits is a pure genius and I wish this person would style me. Everything is simple in its own way but something about it gives it a charm. Everything is very delicate but with a punch, I guess? As you can see, I have a hard time describing styles and what I want to say ^^; (yes, I just put an emoticon heh).
In my suburb, sometimes it seems like there's a uniform code. Everyone wears the same type of pants, shirts, and accessories that it's hard for people to venture out. I tell people that they shouldn't care about what others think of them but I guess I would be a hypocrite. Wearing these outfits would be difficult because then it will mean that everyone in the neighborhood would look, stare, or whisper (or even all of that).
Moving to a city in California will mean that I can be as adventurous as I want and even meet people who have styles that are head-turning. Although I'm not moving to California solely for fashion, it's an important factor for me to express myself without limits. I think that's why I purposely chose to apply to certain colleges, because of the students' styles and fashion sense. Does that sound a little arrogant? I hope not..

As you can see this is a very picture heavy post. I hope some of you, or all, will get some type of inspiration by looking at my picks for the summer. I think the great thing about these outfits is that all of these could be altered (either by wearing a cardigan, coat, or substitute boots) for the fall and winter. Since it's the summer, I'll be posting more frequently and even more different types of posts. If anyone has a request, please comment below and I'll definitely do them!
p.s. If you guys are wondering what my title meant, it's one of the songs from Kanye West's new album, Yeezus, which everyone should check out. Take a listen, it's been on repeat for me.
