Pure sweet violent hearts

Romper c/o Style Moi // Shoes - Zara // Hat - Vintage


Five years ago today, I started this blog. It was the summer of 2010 and I was about to head into my junior year of high school. Fast forward five years and now I'm about to head into my last year of college. It's crazy to think that some of you have stuck around with me for half a decade! You guys have literally seen me grow up. Every once in a while I'll look back at my past posts to see the evolution; I cringe and realize how far I've come haha. Whenever I read posts on other bloggers reaching an anniversary and reflecting back to the beginning, it gets me thinking about my own start on this blog. To be honest, although it would be cool to have an awesome explanation for starting this blog, there isn't really a profound reason. I can barely remember the initial days and it was honestly all in good fun. I wasn't at a crossroad in my life or searching for a way to explore fashion or express my interest in it. For a lack of better words, blogging just seemed cool. It just seemed like a fun activity that I could easily start on my own. So reminiscing back to the start is a rather lackluster story haha. But what I do want to say in this post, besides expressing my gratitude for sticking with me all these years, is that this blog has truly been wonderful to me. And all you readers have been wonderful to me as well. As cheesy as it sounds, without this blog I don't know if I'd be the same person I am today. This blog has definitely contributed to the evolution of my aesthetic and style and it's really awesome how I can look back at how my style has grown and how it has influenced my design/work and vice versa. 

I know I've been slacking a bit the last two years because of school but I'm really hoping I can get back into the swing of things soon whether its in the near future or a year from now when I'm officially out of school. But in the mean time, I hope you guys continue to enjoy my blog as I do reading all of yours. As I said before, I'm about to head into my senior year of college and before I know it, I'll be entering the working adult life. As this time of change arrives, I'm hoping to also move this blog into the next phase of my life. So if you guys notice some changes around here, don't be alarmed haha, a blog makeup is definitely in the works in the near future. 

So thank you again for sticking with me for all 5 years and I can't wait to see what's to come in the next 5! :)

Well that's ok baby only words bleed

Top c/o Style Moi // Skirt - PacSun // Shoes - Sole Society


Hello hello! I'm officially the laziest person ever haha. As to why its been so long since I've posted, well I definitely can't say I've been busy. For some reason I always have a "slow start" during the summer. It takes me a while to really start being productive again after school. While all my friends are busy bees and jumping into things right after school ends, I've kind of been chilling at home for a month now haha. I'm still doing my two internships (soon to be zero actually because I'm getting promoted to being a freelancer for the Zara internship and I may have sort of quit my other internship :P) but it feels like I'm not doing much compared to everyone around me. But don't worry guys, this weekend marked exactly a month since I've been on break, so I woke up this morning and and thought, I'm ready to get sh** done and start being productive again *insert double thumbs up emoticon*. And overall, so far today has been pretty productive so I think I'll just pat myself on the back. So with my excuse, or lack of excuse, out of the way, how has everyone been? 

I realize I never really talk about my outfits and I guess I have adopted the saying "a pictures worth a thousand words" when it comes to my outfit photos. But I do need to address this top because I am officially obsessed with off the shoulder tops. Although I loveeeeeee buying summer clothes more than winter clothes; I always try to limit myself from overbuying crop tops or rompers or anything that's really only suitable for the 3 months of warm weather we get in the Jersey/NYC region. But I think I'm going to have to make an exception just this once and go buy/make a million more off these tops. So if I end up just wearing these all summer long, pray for me. Pray that I get over this phase haha.
