tee, nerd glasses: Urban Outfitters / skirt: swapped with The Delightful Dozen / red heart ring, leggings: Forever 21 / teal ellie moccasins: c/o Bait Footwear

way back when i lived in Chicago, i remember a conversation that i had with a friend who felt the need to break down the definitions of the words nerd, geek, and dork when i used one of them out of context. according to him and Webster, a nerd is an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a non-social hobby or pursuit. i actually remember cracking up laughing during our conversation because he was so nerdy about it, which made the conversation so much more entertainingand then the conversation unfolded into a debate on which is the better television show, LOST (my argument) versus Battlestar Galactica (his). 
we were both HUGE nerds about it.


 and so whenever i put on these glasses, i often remember that intellectual conversation.
and i always wrinkle my nose, stick my finger between my eyes and go, "neeeeeerrrrd!"
next time i'll need to find some scotch tape somewhere to complete the look, dontcha think?


much love.
{happy thursday, friend.}
