Embracing the nerd in me.
In high school...I was a super nerd.
To prove my point...
I was voted Most Intellectual.
Tell me that is not a super nerd!
That means that my peers knew
that I was a nerd and voted me
to be the best nerd.
I actually think it was good for
me though. It let me
grow up as a non glamorous teen and
not feel pressured to
be pretty because I knew I
Now that I am older...
I try to find my style and sometimes, I fall back into my nerdiness and
lose my way.
But today, I was shooting for the
preppy in me. Thanks to Pinterest and
so many other fashion websites, I can finally put things together and
feel comfortable that I made them work.
One of my favorite dot coms is the Pleated Poppy.
She has a weekly linkup on Wednesday and it has an abundance of fashion ideas from 300+ fashionistas.
You have to check it out!
I will be linking this post to the Pleated Poppy because I hope that someone, somewhere might draw inspiration from me playing in my closet.
I actually tried this look several ways. First of all, this Polo puffy vest is reversible. How convenient!
The only problem was that I could not figure out which way I liked it best.
I liked them both. :/
And here was the green. I liked it too.
One benefit of a past/present nerd is that you have a little smarts. The name brand vests were both bought at the Goodwill for $4.99. The shirt is Hollister and was bought on Ebay. The jeans came from a yard sale for the sum of $3.00. Yay for bargains!
So embrace your nerdiness and know that it only means you are special and maybe a little smarter than the next guy. :)
