Happy Friday, friends! We made it. Whew! I don’t know about you, but I am ready for the weekend. Bring on all the relaxing, cozy vibes please! (…with a side of homework unfortunately…) Actually I’m pretty excited about what Allen and I have in store for this weekend. As I mentioned in this post, I’ve been very into decluttering and downsizing what I own. Because I’ve been interning at NASA since I was a sophomore in college, I have acquired quite…

An Edgy Date Night Look

I’ve always been intrigued how some girls can effortlessly pull off the leather moto jacket look. My friend Christina is one of those people. I remember the first time we met over lattes at Wonder, she was wearing the coolest “cool girl” look I’ve ever seen, including said leather moto jacket. Ever since, I’ve tried to incorporate a leather jacket into more of my everyday outfits (see 10×10 Challenge looks) while still keeping true to my own personal in the…

Hi, friends! And welcome to a new week! How is yours starting out so far? This week is already going 10x better than the last for me.

Oh man does it feel good to have my closet back after the Winter 10×10 Challenge. You too?! One of the things I appreciate most during the challenge is contentment with the 10 pieces I’m rotating in and out of my daily wardrobe. But what I didn’t expect this time around is that my closet contentment would stay around long after the challenge was over. Because if you look at it this way….you’ve gained a whole closet’s-worth of new clothes…

Hi, friends! I’m so so excited to be taking part in another 10×10 Challenge, this time a winter edition! This will be my 4th 10×10 Challenge–can you believe it?! (I can’t!) If you are tallying up what you’ve seen here on the blog, you might be wondering where I got the number 4 from! I actually partook in one this fall during all the craziness that ensued after my prelim exams. But I didn’t post about it on the blog…

Hi, friends! And happy 2018! Things have been a little quieter here on the blog lately. (At least in terms of new content for the year…I’m still catching up on holiday posts haha!) By now I’m sure you’ve figured out that it is so hard for me to stay on a consistent blogging schedule when I feel so far behind on all the things I want to share with you! Such is life, I suppose. I hope you all don’t mind…

Creating a little holiday magic with today’s outfit post. This look was a bit spontaneous in its creation, but I love love love how it turned out! In fact it’s probably my favorite look of any holiday outfit I’ve ever put together, which is saying a lot! Between the unexpected layering and the re-styled pieces in my closet, this look is a definite winner and would be perfect for any fancy holiday party you’ve got this season. If there is…

I just love dressing up for the holidays! Don’t you?! I’m the type of person that will find just about any excuse to add a little plaid or pop of red to an outfit to make it feel more Christmas-y. So today I thought it would be fun to share a holiday style at work look that is professional enough for the office but could also easily be worn to a fancy Christmas party. You might remember seeing this skirt…
