(thrifted cheetah print blazer, mesh top, and platform booties from Crossroads Trading, lace bustier top from Foreign Exchange)
Man, it's been a while since I've blogged! I must admit that I've been a little unmotivated to blog recently. In the past year, I've gravitated towards living a more minimalistic life and stepped away from excess. Sometimes, I think the fashion/blogging industry has a tendency to promote materialism and the "keeping up with the Jones" mindset. It's easy to become resentful when you see bloggers buy $200 shirts, eat pricey meals, and travel the world while you're struggling to get your degree at a competitive university to pay the bills in the future. I often have to remind myself that everyone has a different life path and that I have to do what's best for my own long-term fulfillment. I remind myself that I blog because I enjoy it, not because I'm trying to impress anyone.
Onto the outfit! This is just a simple look I put together with my newly thrifted pieces—the bold animal print blazer, meshy top, and metallic-tipped platform booties. It's getting colder in Berkeley, which means I'll have plenty of chances to practice layering in the near future.
Have a lovely weekend!
