joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

More at my blog. http://joannaladrido.blogspot.com

As usual, I love dressing nerdy and librarian-ish, probably because I have always always been a closet geek. I may not look it but trust me, I am…and a hardcore one at that since I was that annoying girl who loved recitation and volunteered for extra credit tasks. I was like the most GPA-conscious person back in my college days, it was crazy. I find it weird that this is the last thing that comes to mind when people meet me but I guess the whole getting dolled up/ I wear makeup and shop thing takes me off of the radar. After a while, it comes out though (with my Discovery Channel and Nat Geo marathons- the two channels I park my television in and prefer to watch over HBO or Star) and the ultimate conclusion of people who have gotten to know me quite well is how surprised they are at how much of a nerd I am. Somehow, fashion and nerdy weren’t meant to be used in one sentence. I plan to change that, seriously!

I love this knit cardigan which is the pink version of that beige cardi I wore a few posts back which I got from Forever21. I just found the knit chiffon ruffle pearl button combo so irresistable, I had to get the design in two colors. Since I already wore one shade, I went ahead for the other one since it looked to perfect for the outfit I had in mind. I wore this button down striped black and white blouse (which has a cute ruffled detail in the middle where the buttons are) with a pleated full miniskirt that I got from Topshop’s most recent sale. Paired together on their own, the look lacked a punch of sass and pizzazz and this cardi was the perfect solution for that. I love the colors pink, black and white so much, I even made our store color’s in those 3 shades combined to prove how much I am a fan of the mix. Since I was going to spend the entire day in the store, I decided to blend in and go along with the theme of the interior and walls. I went all they way with a pair of pink socks with patent Mary Janes, a bow hair clip I found at the SuperSale Bazaar last weekend and of course the nerd specs. Kept my purse simple, girly and cute. Punched it up with pink lips and I was set to rock out the day…nerd style!

I went to Rockwell after for the weekly Wednesday group gathering (me, my dad, my boyfriend and my brother) and I got so much “You look like a doll” comments that all I could reply was “Yeah, I get that a lot.” It’s probably the curled hair, doe eyes and nerdy schoolgirl (not to mention the socks and shoes combo) look but what the heck, I love dolls so I am so not complaining!

I had a pretty interesting day today as I met up with my really good friend Stephie but will save more on that for later so ’til the next post guys!

You look so utterly scrummy in that outfit! Whoever said that fashion and nerdy doesnt belong in the same sentence needs to see the errors of their ways! Ignore those silly comments and wear your clothes with pride and confidence, confidence from the fact that it looks very nice - Love it!
