I bought this hat from an unauthorized online seller because there’s no need to contribute to Trump and his agenda. The only place a Trump supporter should exist is as a joke on Halloween. #shadethrown

Meetings and Finals

Winter break is so close I can’t deal. While I’m wrapping up one semester I’m simultaneously getting ready for next semester in terms of internships and classes. As a second semester sophomore I should have a grasp on what I want to do after college…today I found out that a certain fashion magazine I want to write for pays their writers about 24k a year. And that isn’t even an entry level salary. Public school teachers make more… Anyway, I’m just having another one of my existential crises, nbd. I think about this stuff and freak out and then get over it like every other week. 

This skirt is very Alexander Wang-y and sort of matches too much with the top but it’s a perfect combination for a meeting: trendy yet not experimental. I’m also obsessed with quilted leather–it’s a unique accent on this otherwise plain coat.

The lovely girls (who happen to be sisters) at Weekend Riches were kind enough to send me two tees from their last collection. They’re currently launching a new collection that’s under wraps so stay tuned and follow them on Instagram @weekendriches !

I like these tees because they fit right into my current wardrobe. They’re totally street style friendly.

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.

This dress was definitely a hit on the Greek row last night… I got told the dress reminded someone of a Pokemon character and then we discussed Exeggutor and Pikachu for a bit. At a frat party. I kid you not. 

I always end up wearing something that sparks up conversation when I go out.

Oh and my trusty JC boots: they will forever be my going out shoes. I don’t understand why girls wear heels or super white converse when going to fraternity parties. They’re destined to get wrecked.

(my awesome date)

I had invite this past Friday which is basically like formal. We (a group of 30 people…) started the night off with dinner and then we headed to the venue, Sadie Kitchen and Lounge in Hollywood. 

I wore this holographic Parker dress I picked up back in June from Bloomingdale’s. 

I got my hair done for the event which is rare for me because I know how to deal with my hair better than anyone. But Alexis at Studio K in Pasadena did a great job. I had to adjust a few pieces to make it messier when I got home but other than that, I was pretty satisfied. I definitely recommend the salon.

This would be the end of the Maui photos, I came back to the lovely LA on Sunday.

Eight hour work day to a relaxing dinner at a fab restaurant with some friends. I felt like a princess with this crown on, not gonna lie.
