Good morning, world!
Happy New Year! This is incredibly belated, but I just wanted to look back at the past year in outfits. I started this blog as sort of a journal where I could remember outfits I wore and the adventures I had in them. I finished my second and third semesters of college this year, and I had the wonderful opportunity to conduct research at my university.This was the year where I started my youtube channel and unknowingly loved to touch my hair in my pictures, haha. There are so many reasons to be thankful in 2014, but instead of reminiscing and thinking back on all of them, it’s time to move forward and welcome 2015. Thank you, 2014. Hello, 2015.
First of all, I hope you all had a lovely holiday filled with great food and even greater company! The year of 2014 is nearing a close, and instead of donning myself head to toe in sparkles, I decided to opt for a more subtle way to be in the New Years spirit with this Ann Taylor top with tiny sequins scattered throughout it and a statement necklace. I’ve had this Forever 21 skirt for years (I’m actually surprised that it still fits me), and it is a nice piece to add some volume and drama for your look. I’m probably not even going to a fancy party for New Years, but hey, I love a reason to dress up. Haha.
As indicated by the title of this blogpost, I’m excited for the holidays! I’ve been wanting to wear this dress for awhile, but I wasn’t very comfortable with the color until now. What better way to wear green than during the holiday season, right? While I love a great excuse to overdress, it’s also such a beautiful time to spend with friends and family. These pictures were taken by my aunt, and I’m so thankful for the laughs exchanged between shots and for how wonderful the pictures turned out. Thank you, Bac Ngoc!
Just to kick off the start of finals, it’s a tradition at my university for the faculty to open their homes nearby campus and offer lots of holiday treats. I attempted to take pictures to blog for you guys, but I could not figure out the settings on my camera, so lots of the pictures are terribly blurry (Though, some of them turned out pretty cool though with all the Christmas lights!). It was such a fun night though; with friends from dance and my roommate, I had too much fun acting like I knew how to use my camera and eating all the treats.
When I was back home for Thanksgiving, I met up with some friends from college and high school to do some Black Friday shopping and catch up. Black Friday was insane, and my friends’ and my favorite froyo place closed a month earlier; but good food and great company make any day wonderful. I especially love the fact that my friend acknowledged that I was wearing a polka dot button down and a dalmatian sweater (Hi, Alex, if you’re reading this).
I’m really missing home as I’m writing this blog post, and I’m dreading finals next week. Good luck for those taking finals!
