Norfolk, Nor-fik

Oh, it’s pronounced “Nor-fik?” My GPS corrected me on my 4-5 hour drive from DC to Norfolk, VA. Traffic was a nightmare from the city, but it was worth it to see my friends this past weekend.

From visiting the Norfolk Botanical Garden to the Chrysler Art Museum, this smaller city outside of DC was a nice getaway for my birthday.

Phuket, Part 2

My favorite part of Phuket was hopping on the songthaew (an open door taxi) to Old Phuket Town to see the historic district. Thalang Road was where I went with my friend Katie, and it was a long street aligned with boutique shops, restaurants, and cafes. There was this outdoor food market that had a diverse number of booths for us to try. We left with our bellies full.

April Fools

I’m turning this blog into a whole new direction and becoming a fashion blogger. My OOTD (stands for Outfit of the Day obviously) is this overly warm coat with missing buttons that wasn’t meant to be worn on this spring day is from Anthropologie, baggy work slacks from Zara, and basic beige flats from Gap. Really, I’m the perfect fashion blogger out there. Just kidding, April Fools!

Before Spring

Recently Updated14-001Recently Updated14

The start of March is making me anticipate the arrival of Spring and warmer weather. Can we also excitedly proclaim that we can whip out those flowy skirts, floral, and gladiator sandals? Okay, maybe too soon? March may not be the warmest month, but it’s right before the month that we call allergy season. Sneezing and runny noses ain’t fun, but at least we’ll look cute in our new spring collection?

O N E || MADEWELL, The Cutoff Tee

As a college student, I want to be able to wake up in the morning for class without looking like a slob. It’s the struggle of finding a balance in being comfortable and looking acceptable. We all want to look great. If you want to pursue that college stereotype of wearing baggy sweatpants and Uggs, go for it. I’m not judging you. Everyone has a preference of what is comfy to them, and I usually find myself throwing on a pair of boyfriend jeans and a cutoff tee. This Madewell top is an ultra-airy blend of cotton and linen, and you will be able to pull off that effortless look.

T W O || FIFTH HARMONY, Camilla Cabello

Camilla Cabello is one/fifth of the American pop group, Fifth Harmony. Not only am I amazed at the immense amount of talent this girl band has, they are radiant with beauty and great taste in clothes. I had to put her on this because she’s my current girl crush.

T H R E E || BRANDY MELVILLE, Wylie Flannel

My friend Uriah introduced me to Brandy Melville last year, which I’m so thankful about. Walking around Soho in New York City with a friend, I found that they opened up a Brandy Melville. The store is a tad overwhelming, but the outfits are so synonymous to warm weather. Also, anything flannel is always comfy and cute. You get the best of both.

F O U R || ANTHROPOLOGIE, Marlow Raffia Booties

Anthropologie never fails when it comes to footwear. I admire their shoe collection and wish I could bring them all back home with me. These booties can go well with a flowy floral skirt or skinny jeans.
