Checkered

Checkered

For his graduation, my boyfriend received a generous gift of a 35mm prime lens. Who gets to benefit the most? ME and my blog of course! We were eager to try it out, and even as amateur as we are, I could immediately tell a difference in quality. LA temperature has been spiking lately as summer officially started, so I was finally able to bust out this cropped checkered top that I snatched in a sale at Urban Outfitters a while back. I paired it with some basic high waisted black shorts and my favorite cut out booties from Steve…

Three Books that Have Inspired Me

Three Books that Have Inspired Me

I have had many realizations since stepping into “adulthood”, some exciting and some scary. One of which is the fact that there will no longer be anyone telling me what I should or I shouldn’t be doing. Reading has always been emphasized in my education – required readings and book reports were stable assignments in every school I’ve attended. And even though I no longer took English courses in college, a variety of academic readings helped my mind stay sharp and stimulated each quarter. While I had been acutely aware of how little reading I was doing outside of schoolwork,…

On the Road in Norcal

On the Road in Norcal

I had exactly 18 days between two full time jobs. After going to Seattle and Portland with my best friend and visiting my boyfriend in San Diego, it was only natural to spend some quality time with my family. We spent four days on the road, going from Napa to UC Davis to Lake Tahoe, not doing too much more than just *being* wherever we were.  The city of Napa wasn’t big at all. We took an evening stroll by the river before indulging in an incredible meal at Morimoto, a Japanese fusion restaurant opened by none other than Iron…

Portland, OR

Portland, OR

Earlier this month I visited Portland for the first time. I wasn’t sure what to expect out of a place that prides itself in being “weird”, but it definitely exceeded whatever implicit expectations I did have. The thing that made the biggest impression on me was how amazingly friendly everyone was. On our first day, a bus driver gave us day passes for free and showed us exactly how to get to where we wanted to go, and that was just the beginning. Everyone else from hotel staff and waiters to strangers on the street, was as just warm and…

Comfort Above All

Comfort Above All

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve realized that comfort is the most important thing to strive for in everyday fashion. I’ve always wanted to venture out of wearing jeans everyday outside of summer months. While I’ve learned how to incorporate dresses and skirts on colder days using tights and boots, tights can still be quite restricting and that’s just not going to cut it when I need to sit at a desk for eight hours during a workday. That is why I’m beyond excited to own a pair a flowy trousers from Madewell. The colors are basic but they have…
