I'm experimenting with crop tops again! Actually, this top incorporates two trendscropped and striped. Also, I'm pretty sure the last time I wore a turtleneck was in third grade and I swore I would never wear them again (oops). I'm still getting used to the whole crop top trend. It was pretty chilly when I wore this outfit and the exposed midriff did not help... hopefully I can bust out the crop tops again when it gets warmer.

Today is my last day at home for Spring Break, and, unfortunately, I'm using today to catch up on a lot of schoolwork. But on the bright side, I'm also doing some work for the blog today. Can't believe it's almost April; March went by so quickly! Also can't believe that I'll be a college junior in less than two months. It's been a tough year and I can't wait for summer.

BTW, this post is named after my favorite crayon color. :)

I couldn't decide whether to wear this outfit with a cardigan or without a cardigan or with another jacket altogether, hence the title. I was never really a fan of crop tops but I decided to give them a try because I've been seeing a lot of bloggers wear them. These pants are really just a fancier version of sweatpantsthey were so comfortable that I wore them for the whole day, even at home.

Today is my last day in Berkeley before Spring Break! I'm going home tonight and I can't wait to spend time with friends and family. Cheers to a short week :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Quick post for today. This is basically one of my go-to outfits when I'm feeling lazy. It incorporates some of my favorite piecesbeanie, my fav felt/pleather jacket, and combat boots.

In other news, Spring Break is just around the corner and I can't wait to spend a week catching up on sleep, seeing some of my favorite people, and eating good food. One more week!

Such a long week! So exhausted and so glad it's over. I'm officially done with my first set of midterms (including that horrible probability midterm...shudder) and I'm celebrating by taking a trip away from Berkeley for the weekend. I hope to come back refreshed and ready for next week's challenges.

I tried to do a sort of pseudo-menswear look by wearing a white button-up, a patterned "vest" (really just a sleeveless top), and black trousers. I made the look a little more casual with a denim jacket. I love how the acid-washed denim matches well with the monochrome floral print of the top. 

Have a great weekend!

Salt and Pepper

(cardigan, vest, dress, and booties from Forever 21)

Happy Friday! It's been a busy week, but the weather is lovely today and I can't wait to take enjoy this day and take a walk in the warmth before I return to my workload. 

I'm trying to diversify more by buying and styling clothing from new brands, but I seem to have accidentally worn the same brand for this entire outfit. Haha sigh, next time... I love how the vest gives a pseudo-lapel to the cardigan. The outfit probably would have been just fine without it, but it's nice to differentiate. I opted for tan booties instead of black ones to add a little bit of color to this otherwise monochrome outfit.
