pandaphilia 's Thoughts:

See more pics of this outfit here: pandaphilia.blogspot.com

In lieu of the recent Forever 21 Twist I Heart Nerds collection, I was inspired to create my own version of nerdy chic. I contemplated wearing contacts but went with the whole look of NERD because I am a nerd, down to the core. I remember in high school when we had spirit week there would always be Nerd Day and I wouldn’t even bother dressing up .. hahaha fail. Of course my neighbors stared and people driving down the street slowed down to gape at the crazy girl wearing bunny ears doing jump shots and running back and forth to her camera but that’s how I roll.

For nerdiness, I attached suspenders to my shorts, giving them a Larry King inspired look. I always imagine nerds wearing suspenders and those weird hats with the spinny helicopter blades on top haha. I wish I had a pair of oxfords to complete the look but Converse are much nerdier than high heels. I always love pandas, so I wore a cute print tee from Forever 21 as well. Voila! Instand nerd!

I think this outfit could doubly qualify as Granny because the shorts’ inseam is way too long for me. It’s so sad because I’ve been absolutely dying to get Scallop Hem Shorts forever for an affordable price and when Forever 21 came to the rescue, I jumped on it. Alas, this pair will fare better for someone much taller than me. The belt has such pretty detail and actually creates a great fit.

FOREVER 21 STANDOUT ENTRY
As anyone who follows my blog or visits my closet knows, I live off Forever 21. My principle is “Why spend more on a single item when you can experiment with 10 for the same amount?” Though it’s frustrating because so many people love F21 and shop there, I frequently see people across campus wearing the same thing. So I make it my own. I go to a very competitively academic university, so people are usually dressed in sweats. I stand out because I’m the girl prancing around in cheetah print wedges 5 inches tall and still making it in time for class. Who says nerds can’t have fun and dress to impress too?

Thank you for all your support and votes always <3

So fun! I wish I had the confidence to rock the bunny ear headband-- it's so cute, but alas, I am not brave-- and the confidence to take adorable shots outside like this! Unfortunately my neighbors think I'm crazy enough just on account of me being not from around here, lol.

I like your look here. It's nerdy without being too forced. (The kind of nerdy look that this nerd likes.) It's too bad that the shorts don't fit you, but I'm sure you'll find some (maybe through H&M?).

What a cute little tee. I'm a bit of a nerd by nature - it comes naturally. It just so happens to be "in vogue" at the moment which is fine by me.
