Subtitle: Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard. This song was playing in my head as I shot these photos; ah, Paul Simon. I suppose it’s fitting considering the references to The Graduate (and of course, soundtrack by Simon and Garfunkel) in 500 Days of Summer… This is the eighth and final look of the Summer Finn series! I was such a school girl in this outfit. Someone even told me I looked like one! I have to admit I felt a little embarrassed wearing this ensemble to work, but it’s still cute. Maybe it’ll be a weekend-only outfit from now on. I definitely need to look older than sixteen at work, even though most people mistake me for being that old anyway. All that said, I thought a playground was the absolute perfect destination for this particular photo shoot.
I would have worn little loafers, too, but we’d just gotten a bunch of snow, so that wasn’t really going to be working out for me. Joseph Gordon-Levitt also would have been a great accessory for this photoshoot, but I didn’t find any guys answering to that name just hanging around my door, unfortunately. (Hey Joe, call me!) I did search for this peter pan collared shirt and tie specifically for this ensemble. I had this sweater vest already in my drawer but it was too large, so I managed to alter it to my size. I love it! I have to say I am a little sad now my series is done. Where might I glean inspiration from now on? I’m going to be thinking hard about this one. As always, suggestions appreciated.
