Birthday Festivities

Heartfelt 21st birthday confession in this post–read on if you’re ready to handle some deep personal reflections! ❤ DSC_0165

DSC_0181Another year past and I’ll admit that this time, it definitely feels different than last year. I’m not usually a big birthday person–sometimes I almost forget! But this year, the big twenty-one…another milestone come to pass, it’s definitely got me thinking of how much I’ve changed since starting my life in the city. I don’t feel like the same person I was before, but in a good way. In these three years, I’ve learned so much and realized so many things…and I have to say, I wouldn’t trade my experiences for anything in the world, cause they have led me to the person that I am today.

Birthday Festivities 3Starting my freshman year back in 2012, I felt like I had a lot of unresolved issues carrying over from high school. I can’t say high school was the best time for me and there were definitely times I hurt deeply, but I wanted a fresh start–and what better way to start than in the most inspiring city in the world. I brought with me my hopes, dreams, fears, insecurities…and my love for fashion.

Bundled in Burgundy

Bundled in Burgundy 7Happy Friday loves! Finally the weekend again…I feel like these weeks have been flying by recently. I apologize for the sporadic posting schedule–with classes and recruiting in full swing, it’s tougher to find time to shoot and post. But no worries, I am definitely working on getting back to the two posts a week schedule–soon, I promise!

Bundled in Burgundy 2Lately, it’s been absolutely FREEZING outside here in New York. I can’t bring myself to wear anything other than blanket scarves, wool coats and over-the-knee boots. (If you can’t tell, I couldn’t even bring myself to shoot this post outside.) There isn’t anything I enjoy warm more than bundling up into a blanket scarf right now. I LOVE the burgundy check pattern of this particular one–and it matches perfectly with my burgundy suede OTK boots! ^.^

LuLu’s Style Studio: NYFW 2015!

Super excited to have been invited to my first New York Fashion Week event of my blogging adventure! I couldn’t believe it when I got the Evite a month ago by the LuLu’s team–I’d heard of how they hosted an annual blogger event full of goodies and fun activities, but it didn’t even occur to me that I would be invited! I was so excited for the opportunity to meet other bloggers just like me, trying to make it in the big city! DSC_0338The attire for the evening pretty much consisted of anything that showcased your own personal style–with the added challenge of keeping warm in the below freezing temperatures of New York. Of course I went for my fur vest and faux leather pants–I don’t think I would have even attempted to go to the event unless I knew I’d be (somewhat) protected against the cold.
