Criminal Behavior

keep out

keep out

keep out
works cited: lands end dress; ancient old navy sandals; target belt; thrifted bag; gifted bracelet

I love taking a bunch of pictures only to realize that the secret spot you stumbled upon has a big old "Keep Out!" sign on it. But following posted rules has never been my strong suit...and that quality has shaped me into the deviant, law-breaking super-nerd who gets up at 7 a.m. to read modernist novels, like all criminals do.

ps: I am in love with that stripped dress.

Hehe, rule breaker! At least there wasn't a big scary dog, right?

I love the hair/glasses combo...kind of FBI agent. Which is a good thing! I'm all about being undercover.

This post made me giggle in lab (which is I shouldn't be reading blogs in the middle of day says my grad student voice), but for your blog, I'll make an exception!

Elaine said...

Absolutely love this! You look amazing!

oooooh you are bad! :) I LOVE how your hair looks from the side, what did you do?

Rin said...

This dress is amazing and I want it. If you suddenly find it missing, then know it went to a good closet.

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

haha, rin!
thanks for the comments about the hair; i can't take credit because i stole the idea from a girl i met this weekend. i french-braided the top and then pinned it with a small barrette and made it into a bun at the bottom.

Leah said...

Oh man! I love that dress!

Now that you are in D.C., are you still riding your bike to get around town? Also, do you any have any tips or tricks that you've picked up to remain... uhm... well covered, while riding a bike in a shorter skirt or dress?

Courtney H. said...

Well, it looks like D.C. is influencing how you get dressed- if only you had some stars to add to those stripes.

Bad Taste Toast said...

Lovely striped dress, such a perfect basic piece for summer!

The Jones said...

Stripes are so wonderfully classic. And hey, every nerd needs a little freedom and release now and then ;)

I want a navy stripe dress too, very simple yet so chic and sexy.

genevievvve said...

Wow I love this outfit! It is something I could definitely see wearing where I live, where it is still in the 90's...degrees not the decade! Your hair looks great too.
