Wow. I cannot believe I have been rambling on this blog for four years now. I never expected it to last this long or bring me as many opportunities as it has: Nordstrom fashion board, Claire’s style blogging, modeling, writing for Teen Vogue, internships and writing for the Daily Trojan at USC. This blog is a collection of photos that have documented me growing up. From my house, to my dorm and now my apartment, I’ve been posting these OOTDs for four years. Insane.
Cheers to many more!

Internship outfit this past friday.

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the eighth week of school. After that, nine more weeks. I’ve already started the countdown because I cannot wait to finish this semester and start doing classes that apply to my major. Halle-fricken-lujah.

Naturally, midterms are consuming my life. I finally declared a major (double major): economics and creative writing. I believe that combination covers all of my bases (look at me using baseball colloquialisms!) in terms of my interests and strengths. I find it so strange that you’re expected to choose a major right out of high school. You haven’t even been given the chance to explore. I have taken some GEs here at USC that have immensely impacted my views and opinions. If someone told me two years ago that I was going to major in creative writing, I would not have believed them.

In other news, Bangerz is such an amazing album I can’t even deal. I have been listening to it non stop. Miley was phenomenal on SNL this past weekend as well.

I’m obsessed with Civil Regime’s fall collection. They were kind enough to send me some pieces that have integrated into my wardrobe fabulously. Hats usually aren’t my thing but I’m really liking this snapback. This top reminds me of Givenchy’s iconic angry dog tee which makes it all the more awesome.

Plaid is a fall staple and extremely easy to style. It’s a great print to mix with grunge-y pieces. 

Be on the lookout for more Civil Regime looks!

These shoes are uncomfortable pieces of shit. I haven’t worn them anywhere and I’ve had them since May. I don’t understand how bloggers wear platformless shoes aka the ever so popular Zara ones. Walking is a struggle in those.

I’m obsessed with this dress. I love the jersey style goin’ on (shirts, dresses, mesh tops, etc). I wanted almost all of the pieces in the Rihanna for River Island collection; it was so on point.

Picked up these overalls from LF not too long ago. They’re reconstructed vintage which makes them all the more awesome. I haven’t really seen any overalls like these before and I probably would not have bought ’em if it wasn’t for the patches. 

Naturally, I had to contrast all that grunginess with a princess-esque necklace. My go to shops for trendy, reasonably priced necklaces: Zara, TOPSHOP, ASOS and Aqua via Bloomingdale’s.

In other news, I aced my first test of the year which I’m extremely excited about. I’ve realized that I do my best when I’m on the go 24/7…16 units, sorority, internship, mentoring, volunteering, and the list goes on.
