The Writer


Turtleneck: Uniqlo (similar or here), Jeans: Forever 21, Heels: Sole Society, Accessories: Gap hat, Aldo's sunglasses, Thrifted bag, (kno) name flektor watch (c/o), Anthropologie ring, bombom dainty ring (c/o)

When I was a kid, I dreamed about becoming a journalist one day. I loved to write. I loved news programs like Dateline and 20/20. I was not the "typical Asian" that excelled in math or science. In fact my best, and favorite, subjects were English and Language Arts. Even through college I carried that hope/dream that I would be a journalist but alas, things don't go as planned and I didn't pursue what I thought I would pursue. Life is funny that way. So this outfit brings out the nostalgic and journalistic spirit in me that is still in love with the concept of being a writer/journalist one day.

Happy Friday!

  7. haha I also used to want to be a writer - my fave classes in high school were art and English. I hated math too - my only C was for Calculus my senior year...and I had realized too late that I didn't even need to take it! Boo. haha

  10. Thank you for sharing that! I think it's nice to read a little bit about blogger's pasts sometimes. :) I actually hated science when I was in high school and then when I was getting my teaching credential, I specialized in it! LOL. It's funny how things change.

    I love your bag and the heels just totally make it girly and fun. And you seriously look so cute in that hat. You always look great in hats. Have a great weekend! <3

  23. This was so weird to read...because I'm currently caught in those same thoughts. As in, I always excelled more strongly in English and Literature in high school. And as I'm going through college, I have dreams of being a journalist. Although I'm kinda doubting that right now...haha, we'll see!
    Anyway, love your journalistic take on this outfit ;) Those heels are so HAWT!
