After Hours

All I can think of when looking at these pictures is, "Look how desperately I needed a haircut." Well since then, I have gotten a haircut, but being the inconsistent blogger that I am these pictures are obviously from a few weeks ago. Since then I've made the decision to get a haircut that will allow me to grow out my short 'do without it looking funky, like in these pictures. I'm actually really sad to do so. I figured it would be best for me to grow it out since I will be in Italy at the end of the year, and the last thing I want to do is find myself sitting in some random Italian salon trying to explain what I want done with the two words I'l probably know in Italian (I actually know no Italian at the moment, so wish me luck). While there are some days when I wish I still had my long hair so I could do my hair all Lana Del Rey-esque, my short hair has become my favorite accessory. It brought out the girly side in me and made me appreciate fashion and femininity in a whole new way. 
But whatever it's just hair.

New Classic

Top- H&M, Skirt- American Apparel, Boots- Thrifted, Hat- Nordstrom, Earrings- Flashbacks, Sunglasses- Urban Outfitters  
These photos were taken in Balboa Park in San Diego. Isn't the architecture just gorgeous? Seeing this type of style gets me really excited for Italy. The architecture is one of the main things I'm excited about for that trip. That, and the food.

The Times We Had

Guess what? I'm still alive!!! When looking back on these pictures, I wasn't as crazy about this outfit as I was at the time. But I felt it had been too long since I have posted, so I got over it. 
Not too much has happened. Except for the fact that I just confirmed that I will be spending my fall semester of this year studying in Florence, Italy. I feel like it really hasn't sunk in for me yet. I've been dreaming to go to Europe for as long as I can remember, and the fact that this is coming a reality is truly insane. Also, I will be able to go to Milan during fashion week. WHAT. YEAH. 
So expect me to be obsessing over Italy for the next few months. 
And since I'm talking about Italy, I'll leave you with Beirut's Postcards From Italy, which continues to be one of my favorite songs ever.
