Tan Bowler Hat c/o Romwe, H&M Swan Shirt, Inka Skirt c/o Love of Eos, Colin Stuart Wedges


I am proud to say that I finally made it through my junior year of highschool! As one of my best friends would put it, "it's like getting released from a 10 month prison sentence!" I am done worrying about SATs and ACTs, finals and APs (atleast until senior year). :) For these next few months, I get to shift my focus towards my art portfolio. I started taking weekly classes there 3 weeks ago but now I'll be taking 8 classes per week (some days I have 2 or 3 classes; do not worry, I can count!). At home, I'll also be working on my drawing skills on my own as well as putting together a new collection, which I'll hopefully have time to execute this summer. I have some summer reading assignments for AP Lit and APES next year but at least for English, I'll get to write my research paper on, you guessed it, Sherlock Holmes! (Speaking of which, the DVD comes out tomorrow!!!) Lastly, I'm very excited to be working on a side project with one of my best friends whom I met through Lookbook, Olivia, which we hope to get going during this summer. I don't want to say much yet as we are still in the developmental stage but once the details are worked out, I can share more about it :)

For the first outfit post of the summer, I feel that this look is very fitting. It reminds me of vacation and going on a road trip! Ironically, I will hardly leave the house this summer but being able to sleep in everyday is enough for me to consider it vacation! :P I picked out this tan bowler from Romwe to contrast with my dark hair because almost all my hats are black and tend to blend in. The swan shirt is a favorite of mine which I should wear more often, and the aztec skirt from Love of Eos, is one of the comfiest pieces I own. It's stretchy without being too thin; it feels like it's hugging your curves but it's not suffocating either. For someone who tends to find pants uncomfortable, this skirt is the equivalent of my pair of sweats.

PS: Don't forget to enter my LOVE giveaway! I'll be able to update a lot more now that I'm on vacation so thank you guys for reading and see you again soon! <3
