Nerd alert

Photobucket

(F21 glasses, vintage blouse, Priorities vest, J.Crew khakis, Kenneth Cole boots, J.Crew necklace, Melie Bianco clutch)

I was a nerd in school - braces, thick glasses, super short hair (courtesy of my mother, who insisted the long hair I coveted was too much trouble to maintain and that I should focus on my studies instead). But now that nerds are back in style, it's as easy as pie slipping back into that look. Of course, I've given it a bit of an update with Gossip Girl-inspired ruffles and pearls, a messy topknot and lace-up boots to balance out the prissiness. And I just don't think you can ever go wrong with a pair of glasses for extra oomph, even if they are non-prescription and cost exactly $2.80!

You are the cutest nerd ever! The blue and gold (are the khakis gold?!) combo wins me over. And the glasses... you pull them off so well, I'm jealous!
