cut it out

After months of anticipation the last episode of Gossip Girl finally came, and it was just as beautiful and sad as I imagined it (yes, I may have shed a tear, okay?!). The six seasons leading up to it, though, was where the real magic happened- and I’ve always had a soft spot for Serena’s hairstyle. I tried to emulate it a little here, or as best I could sans the perfect golden mane and designer closet. The necklace and bag are my attempt at accessorising, and the pleather skirt and cutout sweater are for a slinkier feel. This article on dressing like your favourite TV stars (Jess from New Girl- I don’t think it gets any more adorable) is what inspired me. It’s always fun to pretend to be somebody else!

The end of term is so close yet so far away. Trying to stay afloat, and I’m sorry about the sporadic posting! I do have a Melbourne haul on its way if that helps at all… will be back as soon as possible with something fun!

Wearing: Asos sweater (similar here, b’day present from Maria) Oasap skirt, Aldo bag, Miss Shop boots.

  • Sarah

    this outfit just proves that less is most definitely more. your boots, bag and necklace are fabulous and that top is pretty cool! i only have three more weeks until the end of my academic year and so i’m pretty much trying to stay afloat too, although, i think i’m at the stage where i’m clutching at loose ends and trying to stay sane. oh dear

    the outfit is really cool with the cutout at the back of your sweater and the little slit on your skirt :)

    Serena has to have the best style of a tv character, I wish I could have her hair and her wardrobe! I love what you’re wearing :-) x

  • Lena

    such a lovely outfit, I can see the Serena in it! I watched the last episode of GG just the other week too, it was such a perfect ending and I was actually smiling at the end, but about 5 minutes later it sunk in that it really was the end! What do I do with my life now!? x

    Such a wonderful look! I love Gossip Girl as well, and I totally understand you, I really had a couple of tears on my cheeks after watching the episode;) I’m a huge fan of Blair as a person, but Serena’s style is much better anyway.

  • Laura

    Looking so adorable as usual! I’m loving that skirt on you! Good luck up as you finish the rest of your term – you can do it!
