(thrifted crop top from Crossroads, cigarette pants from Forever 21, heels from Zara)
I'm finally done with my second year of college! It was a difficult year in terms of a lot of areas, but I really did learn a lot, and I've become a much more resilient person as a result. It's true what they say: adversity catalyzes change.
Speaking of change, I've updated my blog layout! This layout was created by PINK+LOLA. I've actually been wanting to create my own layout, but I don't have the HTML/web design prowess to do so yet. No matter—I love my new layout as it feels very me. Also, I've allowed larger image sizes on this template because larger images show so much more detail—perfect for outfit photos.
Anyways, onto this outfit—I got these diamond print cigarette pants from Forever a couple of weeks ago and I'm in love with them. The fit is great, and I love that they're cut at my ankles. Being petite, I find it difficult to purchase affordable ankle pants that I don't have to tailor. And let's talk about this beautiful geometric print. It's interesting to think about how much my style has changed. Even just a couple of months ago, I don't think I would be courageous enough to wear a bold print like this, but now I love prints! I think fashion, for me, has been a lot about exploration, and seems to reflect a lot of growth and change that happens in my life. It thrills me to think of how I will expand this blog now and in the future.
