Update 3 {Upstate to City Living}

Hope everyone had a splendid Thanksgiving because I know I definitely did! I only have 19 more days until I go back home for Christmas break and I couldn't be more excited. But between now and then, I need to get through three exams, 1 paper, and 3 finals! It's going to be a rough couple of days, but hopefully, I'll make it through!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I've moved on from using this blog and have a new one called Upstate to City Living

Check it out here
I'd really appreciate it!

I've been posting lots of pictures recently and will have to do some holiday outfit pictures when I get back home at the end of December! But until then, you can enjoy some of my #ootd mirror selfies.

Just to go off topic for a bit. I'm so glad that I didn't take down this blog. I started the blog in high school and I remember I used to take pictures of my outfits secretly in my house so my parents wouldn't find out. I'd go to my mom's closet and go through all of her bags. Ohhhh the good old days. Well, anyways, having the blog still running allows me to go back in time and kind of see how things have changed! My fashion sense has definitely changed, especially after coming to Boston!


Update 2!

This is beyond overdue, but I figured better late than never! I've been home for over a month and a half now and I only have a few weeks left before I go back to school! I've been busy with working (at a lab an in retail!) so I haven't been able to give ya'll an update about what's been going on!

The last time I had posted was in November of 2012, while I as in the middle of the first semester of college. I was so busy, I never even had a chance to update the blog. Truth be told, I was almost scared to log back onto my Blogger account because I was scared that I would have lost a ton of followers. But you guys are all so supportive! I really appreciate it! I actually have the same number of followers as I did in November! Thanks so much for sticking it out for me... For those of you who are in college or have gone through the process, you know how busy you are.

Anyways, although I still had this blog running, I thought it would be more appropriate to start an entire new blog because  my style had changed so much since I left home for college. I'm not exactly sure how to describe it, but meeting new friends from different parts of the country helped define my style a bit better. Also, since then, I've become a little more picky about buying clothes (good quality, yet affordable). I though that it'd be great to start a new blog, which is called Upstate to City Living, to show my new style! 

Below are some outfits I've posted on Upstate to City Living! If you guys like what you see, click here for more content. If not, I completely understand and I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen on this blog! I'm not exactly sure what the fate of this blog is... We'll let the future decide!

Love you all so much and hope you are all enjoying the summer weather! 



In case you were wondering...
I'm still alive! I apologize for my lack of posts; I've been so busy with adjusting to college and studying.   I can't believe that I'm going on break for Thanksgiving next week. Time flies. Craziness. 

Anyways, I've been taking snaps of my new life life as a college student. I'll try to take more soon. 
Until then, ciao.

I don't know about where you live, but in Boston, it's getting pretty chilly. During the first week of classes, I would wear shorts and tshirt (a cute one, of course). But this past Friday, I wore a vest, sweater, jeans, and mocassins. Talk about a drastic temperature change. Anyways. My mom is trying to help me out with my blog posts as I study away. I love this look to pieces; mainly because it's monochromatic. The word "monochromatic" usually has the connotation of being boring. But I think in this case, the monochromatic aspect adds an element of surprise. It's not common that you see people dressed in one color. Plus, the structure of this Sugarlips top takes the long sleeve shirt to a whole different level. Whoever decided to add the sheer "T" on the back was a genius.

Remember this rule ladies: when in doubt, go monochromatic.

Sorry for being so absent this past week! I'm finally getting settled into college and meeting new people. Classes started yesterday and I feel like I won't have that much time to write my best posts, but I'll definitely try! Anyways, before I left for college, I took some outfit shots. But, as you can probably tell, it was raining. Let's just say it wasn't the best photoshoot, but I think it worked out okay. Wish me luck with my classes!

Mommy, if you are reading this, I miss you!


Dress to Impress

Guess who's in Boston right now? Moi.

I move into my dorm tomorrow morning! It has finally hit me; the fact that I'm going to college. I guess I thought that I was going to be stuck in high school forever. Anyways, I've been thinking a lot about what I'll be wearing for classes and other school events. I actually found a really great site called College Fashionista a couple months ago. Since discovering it, I've been doing some research on what college students across the country dress on campus. I want to make sure I start off on the right foot and show people what my style is. I found a couple of inspirational shots from J.Crew's site and I love all of these looks. You really can't go wrong with any of them. What's your favorite?

Blue & Turquoise

So last night, I was looking through my posts and realized that I hadn't worn the coolest shorts I've ever owned...these turquoise ombre shorts from Gap. I couldn't resist getting them when I saw them in store a couple of months ago. Now I'm regretting that I didn't get them in other colors (there were also yellow and orange ones!). They've been the perfect shorts to wear and ,not to mention, super comfy. They're also really versatile because you can either dress the up or dress them down. For instance, you could tuck in a nice button down into them or you could where a simple white tee and throw on a cardigan.

Flower Power

 6 days. That's right. Only a few more days until I leave for college. I've gotten all of my dorm room stuff (woo!) and have most of my closet packed up. Being prepared ahead of time is always a good thing, but having almost all of my clothes in a suitcase doesn't exactly make my job of getting dressed in the morning easier. But, I did managed to fish out this outfit!

Casual Blues

You guessed it! I'm back from Korea and Im glad to be back. I mean, don't get me wrong, I loved it there. But coming home and sleeping in my own bed is the best. The only down side is the 13(!) hour time difference, which means I'm extremely jet-lagged. I'm hoping I'll get back into my normal sleep schedule soon, or at least before I leave for college. 

Today, I ran some errands with my mom. We went to the grocery store! And, we also finished shopping for my dorm/college. Contrary to what other people told me, shopping for college wasn't too bad. As long as you have an organized list of things you need, it's so easy! I had to wear some comfortable clothes, so I pulled out some leggings, a button down, and some sneaks. To add a little dimension, I added my new Tom Ford glasses!
