Just a quick runt through of he highlights of my March and the beginning of April: I found an apartment for next year, got a summer internship at one of my favorite magazines, and got to go home for a couple days during Spring Break! (Although, sadly, I did not seize the opportunity to have In-N-Out burger). Coming back from Spring Break, there was of course a lot of homework to catch up on, but it is shocking to think that my foundation year at Parsons will be over in 4 weeks, and that we will be registering for our fashion design courses in one more week!

I have a new fondness for all things black (faux) leather now, and a general greater appreciation for basic pieces for their versatility and timelessness. Parsons has taught me a lot about sustainability in fashion, especially the value of clothing pieces that are not tossed aside after only one or two wears because they quickly go out of style. The lipstick, coat, bodysuit (which I've worn as a top), and skirt in this look are all from the store Missguided. Be sure to check out their store as they have a lot of versatile pieces! I'd also like to thank Micaiah for taking these awesome outfit photos for me; he was actually one of the bloggers that Tumblr send to NYFW this past Spring so definitely take the time to check out his blog here as well!
