Faded Glory

As the weather gets cooler, I became more obsessed with layering sweaters, shirts, and accessorizing with scarfs and beanies. This shoot with Kelly was from a while back, when the weather was warmer. I thought I keep it more laid-back with just gray Jeggings and a white button up. To add more color, I tied a silk scarf for a more flirty feel. One of the reasons why I really like this outfit although it's simple for my taste is because of the jean jacket. On Christmas of 1992, when I was more than eight months old, my mother bought this jean jacket for my father as a present. After eighteen years, he still keeps it in his closet. Although he can't fit it anymore, he still holds it dear to his heart. Last month, I found it by chance and he happily passed it on to me. Although it is not my style, it is extremely comfortable and has a homey feel that makes me want to cuddle with it. That is why I really wanted to feature it on this blog. Happy fall everyone. Although I know that the change in weather has not been giving such happy days, but change can be a good thing in the end.

Midterms have been rough and the weather has been changing constantly. My mood has been up and down a lot just like the unpredictable Chicago weather. Fashion-wise, I've been on the bummy end, just running to school in hoodies and sweatshirts. A couple of weeks ago I attended a youth leadership conference, so in the rare occasion I decided to go all out and look more decent. This is a variation of the outfit since the actual day that I went, it was rainy and cold, so I layered with black stockings, a black blazer, and my black Nine West oxfords to really make the blue pop. Normally, I'm not a blue person, but there's just something about the satin and the royal blue hue that makes me feel so sexy and confident.
