midnight cowboy

This outfit is. So. Not. Me. Remember a long time ago (but you probably don't) when I said that the only time I ever looked even "remotely" hipster compared to the always hipster Niklaas was when I wore plaid and then all hipster broke loose? This was one of those days. Maybe one of these days I'll try to make a girly plaid outfit, but, really, I don't think it's possible and everyone has to have their "different/experimental" days!

I got this sweater two years ago because I just had to have an ultra comfy sweater and Hollister sweaters are typically very cozy. I didn't know it was going to be forty inches long though, so it's basically a dress, and I have never worn it in public. It isn't something for petite gals to pull off! And, when I decided to wear something with it, I just thought...plaid. And then shorts. And then tights. And then my "hipster" boots. And voila. Un-Maggielike outfit!

This weekend was the best weekend ever. Seriously. My cousin is considering going to UM next year and he came on Friday to tour the school. He ended up hanging out with my friends and I for the entirety of the night and then hiked the "M" with us the next morning. Niklaas was also here for his soccer team so I've seen him twice this week (a record, surely). Niklaas attended our movie night along with my cousin and it was just a giant group of my best friends and him. I positively loved it. It's always funny because I know in my heart I like that kid a lot, but when I'm with him, I realize I have no idea how much I adore him until that moment that he's right there. And I get giggly and nervous and smiley and it's just like the first time I saw him. One year later and it's still just like day one, just older, wiser, and even closer than before.

We also went to the hot springs which required a two mile hike. It was a very full day and when I got home from dinner afterwards with Niklaas and his family, I collapsed into bed and slept for a full twelve hours. It was glorious. This week is going to be torture (chemistry midterm!) but guess what?? SPRING BREAK IS ONLY FOUR DAYS AWAY!!!!!! I'm going to die. I'm so, so excited.

Well, I need to go continue my chemistry consuming. Bleck. I won't be too attentive to the blog this week (it's an every three week pattern) but I'll be reading your comments! Thank you all for how wonderful you are to me. Next week, I'll finalllly be posting my giveaway, and I think you'll enjoy it. (Hint: Modcloth!)

Wow, that sweater does look like it would be super comfy and cozy and warm! I would definitely like to curl up in a nice little nest wrapped up in that. And haha, embrace your inner hipster! ;D I like the boots/plaid/hat combination.

I'm glad to hear you had such a fantastic weekend! Getting to reunite with your cousin and of course with Niklaas and hiking and such. :) And ah, a full 12 hours of sleeping does sound so fantastic! Good luck getting through your chem midterm; spring break is just around the corner!

Alex said...

I love grunge-y Maggie! It's so cute and that sweater is adoraaaaaaaaaaable! I want it right now! I love big sweaters, even though wearing now would be kind of inappropriate and sweaty :p so I'll have to wait for like... December D: gaaaaaaaah. Anyway, I'm glad you're having a good time, and damn. This week is study time for me as well. How I loathe that.

You look adorable in that So.Not.You outfit!
I need to follow your blog right now because I loved everything about it *-*

See said...

I think that oversized sweater looks amazing you, what are you talking about. but about you and niklaas. I think it's amazing you still feel giggly and nervous towards him. It's adorable and a unique kind of love. <3 but have fun on your spring break darling! i know you'll have a great time back home.

Aww, I'm so happy to hear you had such a lovely weekend! And I really like this look! I think that sweater looks so cute with the plaid top. And about the whole hipster thing, I totally have days where I feel like I'm dressing up like a stereotype (usually grunge or something). I think it's just a good way to figure out what your style is :)

Caroline Ergy Erg said...

Very jealous of the boots! The heart print tights are adorable too!

Catherine said...

I actually think this outfit is totally you - albeit, a little bit modified :) But in a good way! I think whatever someone puts together will always contain familiar elements, even if it's out of his/her comfort zone, you know?

I'm rambling. I hope the rest of your week goes well!

That's exciting that spring break is coming up, you need a well deserved break :)

Really really love the tights, they remind me so much of a pair I had when I was younger. The hat and plaid are fun as well. Very cool

I feel the same way about Alex even after 7 years :) (not bragging about the years here lol) I'm so glad you got to spend some time with your man! and for a moment, I thought you meant UM as in University of Miami... I got all excited and would have proposed to meet! But then I remembered you said you're in Idaho? Boo :( Anyway, I like this un-Maggie outfit! you cute thing you!

I love your sweater! I covet your sweater! Seriously - I'm always looking for that perfect gray, slouchy sweater. And the perfectly thin white blouse but that's for another day. :)
