Skippy Says: And They Call It Puppy Love (OOTD)

For the past few months, my best friend has been trying to convince me that a guy we supposedly hung out with in high school is real. Because apparently for some reason I've totally and completely blocked him from my memory. And despite the, um, distinguishing features she's mentioned (bowl cut, wearing a red jersey every single day, and significant B.O.) I could not, and cannot, for the the life of me remember him. But there's more. Supposedly this figment of her imagination guy was in love with another best friend of mine when we were in high school, and tonight she found a love letter he wrote to her back in the day. I know we're going to sound like horrible people, but reading that letter tonight gave me some of the best laughs I've had in months. You guys, there was a bit of everything teenage angst you could want-- knights (spelled nights) in shining armor saving their damsel in distress, castles with metaphorical walls being broken down, shakespearean quotes, and even biblical references. Apparently he was Adam, and very tempted by the forbidden fruit that she was. For realz.

  3. Love the outfit, story and the photos! You look stunning in that first pic.

    In high school a friend of mine received a similar letter from an admirer, and while I was jealous then I'm sure it would be hilarious to me now.

  4. That's so funny about the letter. During high school these things were so important and dramatic, and to look back as an adult, it can be just plain hilarious! Oh, young teenage love! Your blazer is fabulous too!

    I love how you are wearing this blazer! I remember seeing it on the Anthro website and being puzzled as to how one would wear it. I think it works perfectly in this look, and I am impressed that you were able to pair it with a floral shirt -- LOVELY!

  39. Hehehe, you horrible person! No, I would have lots my lunch too having read something like that (when I was in HS I could at least spell).

    I love your jacket - I didn't even notice that it had two different patterns/textures in the front. Looks so cool! Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Happy New Year Inna!! Love your pics against the red wall! And that blouse and blazer are amazing!

    Isn't it funny when we look back at high school stuff - so much angst! It's always fun to reminisce.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Such a funny story. It is (sometimes lol) so much fun to reminisce about those awkward years. I am seriously loving your outfit. The blouse, skirt, and blazer are all amazing!! -Dreama

  43. This is a wonderful outfit. It's so flattering and beautiful and I love the colors and textures. So beautiful.

    I love your story about the imaginary guy. I feel that way a lot. I swear my face has never changed and people recognize me from like third grade and I'm always so confused.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love this skirt and this blazer! I have reread a few things that I wrote back in high school and OMG the ANGST and the EMOTIONS. A friend of mind got a similarly awkward love letter in high school.

    ReplyDelete
  45. it's always funny to remember the puppy love days, and some of the silly things that people do. I lost touch with my first crush, haha...he probably has a pot belly by now. Great outfit by the way, I like the contrast of fabrics and textures, nice color combo too. Happy new year!

  46. Haha, that's too funny. I love going back and re-reading notes from high school or looking through old pictures and remembering silly things. Some of it's easy to forget and I've only been out for 4 years! Crazy.

    I absolutely love your outfit, especially the blazer!
