Maybe I'm a different breed

So I tried a little social experiment this week.  Earlier, I said that I would totally wear sunglasses indoors if it was more socially acceptable.  Then I got thinking...screw social acceptableness.  If I want to wear sunnies inside, I will.  It wasn't that bad actually.  I dress out-of-the-ordinary as it is, so an added oddity is barely anything to notice.

With this outfit in particular, I felt quite pretentious prancing around campus in a blazer and pearls while everyone else was in jeans and flip-flops.  So sunglasses indoors is just the cherry on top of an already eccentric outfit.  I can definitely deal with a few extra stares.  Would I do it again?  Sunglasses during lectures is a tad impractical, but if it really goes with the outfit, I won't say no to grocery shopping with some shades!

On a side note, I think my subconscious kicked in again and I was channeling my inner Paris Hilton with the headband/blazer/braid/sunnies look.


What I'm wearing:
-Navy/white striped blazer
-White t-shirt
-High-waisted blue shorts from Forever 21
-Red ballet flats from Zellers

By the way, the title of this post was taken from my current favourite song, 'Sail' by Awolnation. I'm sporting a nautical look today.  Nautical...Sail...get it?

  5. You look amazing, the better Paris :D
    You should study law or economy here, the ppl run down the campus in blazers and oxfords and it's pretty normal for most of 'em to wear sunnies indoor ^^
