Higher than high, lower than deep

thrifted DIY cut-off sweater, bcbg dress, zara boots

Snuck away from reality for a bit to come to one of my favorite places on campus to just bask in what will be one my last moments as an undergrad in a place I've called home these past years.  It's official, I finally declared Spring graduation and am undergoing preparations for my final months here.  SO SURREAL. Spent the past half hour reflecting on our time here with my roommate and how bittersweet these memories have been.  Moving forward is probably one of the most challenging things to embark on,  but it's our turn now, our time to grow up.

On another note, wearing things I'm currently obsessed with: shruggy oversized sweaters (I get scissor crazy), billowing dresses in the wind (which I've raised about a foot considering I would always trip over it at it's normal length), and my zara boots.  Seriously, when I love something I will wear it to death.  Case in point, these boots.  I wore them on a night of inebriated fun and well, they're not as pretty anymore. haha

P.S. Happy Earth Day!

Your pictures never fail to blow me away! I love this outfit so much. Always admire people who can pull off casual and chic at the same time.

Congrats on almost graduating! I can't believe these were taken on your campus. What a view. Wish my campus looked good like this.

Style Soufflé

I really like the proportions of this outfit! The slouchy sweater with the billowy dress is unexpected, but works so well!

Haha wow, I can't believe that's your boyfriend's name! You were probably mad weirded out by it, haha.

The posts I tag "Alan Tran" contain photos that were taken by him. He's one of my suite mates and a great photographer. Who takes your photos btw? They're amazing.
