Downhearted Blues

Whoo hoo! I just finished my first two days of college! It was exciting yet nerve wrecking at the same time. I was almost kind of sad seeing how everyone is already so close to their dorm-mates and I only have two people I know in class. Different from my personality, my shyness forced me into places that I'm glad I went to. I went to Madonna della Strada chapel to pray several times a day as well as rummaged the Cudahy library, reading the Sky and Telescope journals. Gosh, I'm on mad nerd mode!

Alright, less talk, onto fashion! I recently stumbled onto this dress during my back to school shopping trip a while ago and I was totally sold the moment I tried it on. You know how I'm obsessed with the nautical theme this summer, so I just couldn't help myself. I decided to crash my best friend, Kelly's house, and did a fun photoshoot with her dad's awesome Canon 40D. Honestly, I could never go back to my point-and-shoot ever again afterwards!

All Laced Up

Sarah's outfit caught my attention because it has a sexy yet romantic feel. The slightly see-through lace shirt is countered with the dark denim and the soft gold jewelry, giving a sweet and personable feel to the ensemble. The bag and the high waisted jeans also make the outfit more classy, emphasizing the shy beauty of the lace shirt. I totally adore this outfit and I thank Sarah once again for sharing and Stylespiring all of us!

A Black Bow Affair

Lately, I've been getting into some of the styles that I've never really liked before. I suddenly developed a fond liking to neutral colors as well as lace. I'm usually a bright and colorful person, but lately I've been liking more neutral and feminine, flowy styles. It gives a very innocent, sweet, and soft feel to it that suddenly attracts me. Different from my usual bold pieces, I am starting to lean more towards the subtle and sweet look. Not to mention that I've been buying a lot of stuff with bows on it lately, I just can't help myself anymore. By the way, digging the hair? I know I am!
