But it wasn't until this weekend that I was able to attend my first Ohio State University football game; people in this city tend to take the football team with exaggerated zeal, but the atmosphere is fun, none the less. My boyfriend and I drove down especially for this game, and I was able to stop by Easton (a mall I had worked, and practically lived in, as a teenager, and one I had taken for granted until moving up north) to shop at their gigantic Forever 21.
1. Button Up Woven Skirt: a basic staple will transition well from summer, summer-fall, fall to winter weather (you never know with Ohio weather, after all). It's cute by itself or with tights and boots.
2. Long Woven Skirt: I've resisted the maxi trend for as long as I could manage: I despise empire waist styles; I can't help but grimace at girls wearing big print maxis that seem to swallow them hole; I also abhor the idea of 'carrying' your dress around with you. Though I understand that -- under certain conditions -- a maxi can elongate a figure (my boyfriend's sister, for example, looks great in them), I firmly stand by my age-old "too short and curvy" theory. This isn't the exact skirt I bought, but the length is what is important; long enough to not emphasize the thickest park of my leg, short enough so I won't have a skirtful in my hand, a la Renaissance. Mine is a thinner material (a good transition piece!), and a beautiful dusty pink color.
3. Koi Fish Charm Necklace: This picture does this necklace no justice! It's a quirky, and in its own way elegant, koi charm with a beautiful navy and orange color combo. My boyfriend bought it for me after I kept coming back to the piece, unsure of whether to buy it or not.
Aren't spontaneous adventures fun?
