January 26, 2019 – Student in the Library (OOTD #445)

This doesn’t look like studying, does it.

As it turns out, the creepy upper floors of the library have some good lighting for photo-taking! There are only a few tiny windows per floor (bad design, I know — but they had to make room for the giant Jesus mural somehow) but each one is situated by a desk, which makes it easy for me to set up my phone for photos. Plus, since it’s, you know, the library and no one actually wants to be there, I don’t have to worry too much about people walking by and wondering what I’m doing.

I do wonder sometimes how often people see me setting up my phone and taking pictures in a strange public place and then just….keep going about their day. Like, what are they going to do? Ask me what I’m doing? That’d make things awkward for the both of us.

I have to think that some innocent stranger was going about their day at some point or another, came across a little Asian girl fiddling with her camera and her watch as she posed in between bookshelves on the 8th floor of the library, and then just decided to keep walking. They might have thought it was a little weird, but it would have been even weirder if I’d seen them and I had to explain what was going on — so might as well just carry on as if nothing was out of the ordinary.

I have yet to have a true nightmare situation where someone confronted me about what I was doing while I was taking pictures for my blog (or worse — asked me if I wanted them to take my picture), but I still fear that one day it will happen. I could get hit by a train tomorrow and I think I’d still fear the awkward situation of having to explain my fashion blog to a stranger more than death itself.

That’s about it for today. Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life at Notre Dame. Don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, BloglovinTwitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at lensembledujour@gmail.com!

  1. Love the outfit and the library is a good place to take photos. I wouldn’t worry about what people think of you taking photos. Just focus on getting the shot. You might inspire someone to start blogging too😊
