Casual Friday





Sweater - Gifted// Denim Chambray - Nordstrom// Jeans - Vigoss// Shoes - ASOS Southwark// Deathly Hallows Necklace - Etsy
Coming home after the sun goes down is a great excuse to have the Teen Vogue "last look" inspired photo shoot you've always wanted. This is exactly what I did after coming home from a long stay at Starbucks to do homework. It was quite fun and weird at the same time since I spend a lot of time in here... so just planned posing with my furniture was an experience. But yes, it's that time again; school has started. This semester I'm only taking one fashion class (the rest being general education classes) which is Introduction to Textiles and I love it already! 

I can truly say this is what my study day outfits will look like for a while and since the new semester started I have been gearing towards a more preppy yet still appropriately street wear look. (Does that even make sense?) Maybe not but I felt like that today and these shoes I just got from ASOS is basically an open door to another fashion persona for yours truly. The moment I saw these on Sasha Obama I fell in love and was excited to see them available in black. The background story of this purchase was that I had never ordered shoes from ASOS but they had listed my usual size as sold out and me being me decided to take a risk and order them in a whole size up, telling myself I could just slip some cork inside and it would fit just as good as Cinderella's glass slipper but to my surprise they fit just like that without any odd materials. It was fate. It had to be. I mean, if the shoe fits...

Disneyland



*Taken at a totally different time then the full body pictures, darn early sunsets!*
Sweater - Nordstrom Rack// Dress - Roxy// Shoes - Sperry Top-Sider// Watch - Betsey Johnson// Bag - Michael Kors// Darth Vader Beanie - Disneyland// Necklace - Love Culture
A plus side of living in Southern California is the fact that you have the luxury of going to Disneyland without hassle of a list of road trip snacks, booking a hotel, and packing for weird weather that you would never hear of. I grew up a Disney girl, went on the cruise to the Castaway Key and everything when I was a kid, and I'm still one today. I think that stuff just sticks with you, being raised by Walt Disney. Trust me I'm not complaining either. This particular day at Disneyland I wasn't feeling a ride vibe, so my sister and I watched the Magical Map show, in which I only go for Pocahontas, Tiana, Mulan, Rapunzel, and Flynn Rider singing (Good job at casting, Disney Parks). 
And here I go mixing prints again, will I ever stop? Probably not, it's my super power. Typical outfit I'd wear to Disneyland and yes, every outfit will come with the Darth beanie when I enter the original Magic Kingdom (It's a Darth Vader beanie with Mickey ears, come on can it get any cooler?)

2014 - An Open Letter

Happy New Year loves!
So if you have noticed, I have had a hiatus from the blog. I've been living the college life. The life of friendship and family and discovering yourself. Pointblank: I haven't been trying to get any type of social media 'obligation' in the way of a good time the past couple of weeks and I actually enjoyed it. Though I know I have a responsibility to manage this blog, the break was amazing and I feel cleansed. I apologize for the leave, the very sudden leave, but I felt it was good for me to align my passions and priorities. Since the New Year has rung in I feel like this year will be just as better as last year; and that's the way it's supposed to work. Every year gets better, every day gets better, every minute should get better. 

(And yes I made this short, simple, and sweet - I'm back.)
