Cape studs.

Brown Ralph Lauren blouse, Light grey gifted Volcom cape cardigan, Brown thrifted belt, Black Topshop stud shorts, Black thrifted straw boater hat, Light brown Forever 21 suede wedges.

Hi Beautifuls!  I firstly just want to really apologize for my long absence :(, it was mainly due to a busy weekend with my little brother's girlfriend's cotillion Saturday and my Paul Mitchell Fashion Show on Sunday.  But I hope you lovelies are doing well!  Definitely have a lot to catch up on aand omg very excited for what is to come for my blog and to share with you through future blog posts!! :)
Wearing here my new gifted Volcom cape cardigan, I seriously love the soft feel of the fabric (as odd as it may sound, yes sometimes I do pet the fabrics of my clothes, lol -- esp fur coats!!)  I love also how draped it is along with how it perfectly falls in all the right places around my arms, eek I LOVE it, cardigans are a must in my closet.  Decided to style it proportionally -- having a long cardigan, wanted to wear something short underneath, so paired it with one of my unique and fave stud shorts from Topshop.  This Ralph Lauren blouse is def a designer piece I'm most proud of thrifting :).

Along with many other things going on in my life..there is only ONE month left of my Junior year at Cal!; my little brother (well not so little he really is like 5'8 almost 5'9, towers over me), he will be graduating from high school in June; my boyfriend will be graduating from Cal in May! (so close!); I'm starting out my new job with chloe + isabel officially this month after my job training in SF; andd I'm getting an apartment with my future roomie next year in Berk! (which I am so excited to start decorating with pretty Ikea furniture) ;).
Whew, sorry that was a mouth-full.  But a lot of new steps in my "adult" life are happening at the moment :p.
Can't wait to catch up on all your amazing blogs lovelies!!  Definitely have missed them, and hope you all have a lovely week to come! Thank you sooo much again for all the support for my blog.
PS. Paul Mitchell Fashion Show photos are to come soon! :)
And also, sooo beyond excited of being the giveaway winner at Diana Kang's blog for her Chanel vintage purse!! :)

<3, Kathleen.
