sea of voices

It's been more than a year. My apologies.

Time flies and sooner or later you're wrapped up in a whirlwind of daily errands, obligations and promises that you never intended to keep.

We stumbled onto the beach this weekend, enjoying a childish moment of freedom in the midst of our busy lives. It was so calming to be here when the weather was perfect, the wind whipping through our hair, and barely another soul in sight.

Kevin and I were caught by surprise with how quickly the waves decided to crash upon us. I didn't notice since my feet were safely covered in my shoes. Special shoutout to my brother and his girlfriend for accompanying us and capturing the priceless moments. They reminded us of how to enjoy the moment and just have fun and laugh as much as we can.

RAP GAME CRACK GAME


DKNY jacket // LF sweater // Hollister jeggings // UO loafers // HUF snapback

I love hats and mix matching prints. Backpacks are easier for carting around my schoolwork and just shoving all of my necessities into it. I forgot what it was like to wear one. The weather has gotten so much chillier at such a rapid pace that I haven't been able to prepare for it. I'm still not ready to wear a thick coat, so I'll try to bear the cold until I have to succumb to donning something heavier.

where life takes us

 sweater, jacket, shoes - Urban Outfitters // jeans - Hollister Co.

Fall is my favorite season. Shooting with a camera again feels so foreign yet so familiar. It's like riding a bike after years of being out of practice. You're clumsy but everything just ends up falling together in the end. I opt for comfort and the easiest things to throw together in the morning. My hair is in constant disarray and life feels exactly the way my hair is -- tangled and indecisive. I've let things control me instead of the other way around. In a blink of an eye, I've turned twenty one and achieved almost none of the goals I have set up for myself. I need to reevaluate myself and recognize the things that used to make me a happier and better person. I need to find myself again. Then again, what part of life isn't a constant journey of finding your own source of fulfillment and enjoyment. The older we get, the more we lose sight of what we really wanted to take this lifetime to figure out. I wonder how many more lives I'll get to live. Let's hope I'll be smarter then.

nostalgia's for greeks








my life has become a dull collection of quick snaps and two minute editing sessions on my iphone. i recently turned twenty one, so i can legally drink but instead i choose to sleep in my bed to catch some rest from a 40 hour work week and two 12 hour days in school. time is of the essence and i have no time. i need a change of pace in life -- a fresh breath of cold winter air.

i spend my time at festivals and shows, letting lights inspire me and letting food replenish the energy that i feel depleting quicker than a smartphone battery. have you seen these new New York IDs? they're terrible. and plastic. i'm sure i'll break it within a year.

i hand painted and stenciled wooden greek letters. that was fun.

i wish i had the time to really put effort and time into my photos again. like i used to. like three years ago when i started this blog. can you believe it? three years. so much (and so little) has changed. 

on a good note though, it's finally fall.
i love fall.

cropped sweater - H&M // floral highwaisted denim shorts - american apparel
vintage dress - Kookai // kneehighs - american apparel

i find it easier to document my life and my outfits through the shitty lens of my iphone.

i miss the art of setting up my camera and adjusting the settings and running around hoping the self-time doesn't go off too soon and then sitting in front of my computer and writing a blog post. but being a full-time student and working long hours at my job, i can't seem to find the time anymore. maybe once in a while.

for now, you'll all have to settle.
like i did.

oh the desolation grows

cropped collar shirt - American Apparel // jacquard lace tee - American Apparel // chiffon skirt - American Apparel
flat edge leather belt - American Apparel // opaque pantyhose - American Apparel


An outfit for work! And then random photos through my week. I've been spending my second week of winter break just working a lot, hanging out with friends, and eating. I'm going to gain so much weight...I finally got to have dinner with my line from my sorority. It's so nice seeing sisters that joined the sorority so long ago and that they still come out and see the expansion of their families. The food at Gyu-Kaku was amazing. It was Japanese barbecue. A little expensive, but it was definitely worth it. And the drinks weren't bad either. The lychee bellini was pretty spectacular. I hope everyone is enjoying their breaks, if you have one. If not...well...I hope you guys take some well deserved vacation days. :)

who cares?


 crop sweater - Forever 21 // light wash high waist jean - American Apparel
oversized parka - LF // leopard sneakers - Vans // kitty socks - Forever 21

I love these shoes. Seriously. I'm obsessed. And it's finals week, so any excuse to potentially dress like a boy, I'll take. And peep those socks. It's a cat face....WITH EARS. C'mon. How cute is that. Okay time to get back to studying because otherwise I'm going to fail or something like that. Don't major in accounting unless you want to sell your soul to the devil. Which is exactly why I'm changing my major.
