A Remix of Sorts

28 Jun

Looking through old photos not only reminds me of my past experiences, but the clothes I’ve worn.

My friends and I have been reminiscing a lot lately since a few are leaving SoCal soon. One is heading to medical school in Chicago and another is going to law school in San Francisco. We were talking about the silly parties we used to have at the end of the year and I remembered a skirt I made for one of those events.

It’s Just Another Day at the Office

2 Mar

Running around all day makes it difficult to sit down and write in a cohesive manner, but I’ll do my best.

I got an eye exam the other day and my prescription went down a little. It’s a good thing and I hope that whatever I did, it’ll continue decrease my myopia. Though I am hoping to get Lasik sometime in the near future, I figure I should wait until my eyes settle and see if they’ll be better on their own. I guess being out of college has some benefits!

Spring is on its way and I’m scrambling to get the most out of my winter wardrobe. I figured I should get some mileage out of my mom’s wool skirt before it gets too warm. It’s not often that I tuck the top into my skirt because I think it makes my torso look too short. But somehow, it works. And the skinny belt adds a necessary pop of color.

By the way, I got my D&G heels from the Decades Two sale this past summer. They had shoes ranging from size 5 to 10+. Usually, I go for size 6, but I stumbled onto this suede pair and magically they fit even though they’re 5.5. The heels run a bit narrow, but they’re quite comfy. I’ve been staying away from all things shoes because I don’t need any more shoes.

Here’s to a great start for March!

Outfit Details: Madewell cardigan XS, Nordstrom tank S, The Limited wool skirt 2 (mom’s), J.Crew skinny belt S (added hole), J.Crew herringbone tights S/M, Burberry tote, Dolce & Gabbana suede pumps

Rainy Days Get Me Down

25 Jan

Outfit Details: Nordstrom floral tunic S, jacket XS and scarf, Madewell jeggings S, Qupid booties

I don’t like it when it rains over here. It floods, people can’t drive, and it’s so hard to see. It doesn’t rain here often, so I don’t really have raingear aside from an umbrella and “rainboots”. I have a white trench, but it feels strange to wear it around. So I ended up wearing the red coat my sis gave me for Christmas. It has a hood, it fits my body, and it’s brightly colored, which is perfect to perk up any mood. I’d say my outfit is pretty impractical for the rain, but at least it makes me happier.

Usually I can get in a couple of good shots before it gets too dark, but this time around I only had one. I guess the light didn’t want to work with me because it was literally pouring outside.

How do you stay stylish on rainy days?
