Ombre and studs.

Tan H&M crochet sweater, Brown thrifted belt, Blue ombre Runway Dreamz stud high-waisted shorts, Ivory H&M bracelet, Gold F21 rings, Tan Sam Edelman Valin wedges.

Say hello to my newest prized addition to my wardrobe..ombre high-waisted jean shorts from Runway Dreamz.  Splurged and bought it for myself after stressing, cramming, and working hard on finals..gave myself a little present afterwards :P.  They are aamazing and will be on me this entire summer :).
Along with that, I also have new additions to my jewelry collection..these two gold rings I got from Forever 21.  I am looving them, mainly because they remind me oh so much of the YSL rings.  I try to feed my craving for the real one with near look-alikes..that is, until I get my own someday!  #1 on my Birthday wishlist lol.
Sorry for the repetitiveness with these Valins..I'm doing a good job in breaking them in.  They seriously are THEE comfiest 5 inch heels I've ever worn.  I can walk around in them shopping, on Berkeley's steep hills.

This past week was able to meet up with more of my fave Bay Area blogger girls!  Cindy of Design3rd and Chanda of PancakeSTACKER.  Loved how I got to meet them finally!  These girls are super sweet and we def enjoyed lots of laughs eating out at Blue Barn Gourmet in SF, walking around diff shops, and having a mini photoshoot (even risking our lives taking photos in the middle of the street, among other things lol).  Love these girls! <3
--
And lastly, just wanna express how much I'm so happy to have you as my readers.  This past weekend Inspirafashion hit 1,000 followers.  I started this blog last September 2010, just thinking it'd be a creative outlet away from school..but it's grown to be so much more.  I now am thinking of pursuing a career in fashion as a stylist, although I know how tough it is to break into, I'm determined to make, yes as corny as it sounds, my dreams happen.  And with you all here along for the ride, makes me infinity times more confident in myself.  Thank you so much lovelies for all your support since Day 1 or since whenever you started to read my blog.  It means a whole lot to have you all here. Sending lots of love and hugs through the blogosphere. 
Have an aamazing weekend ahead, enjoy the sun, and hope you have a lovely Father's Day! :)

♥, Kathleen.

Holy crap! Those are without a doubt the coolest shorts I've ever seen. How eye-catching! As if the ombre wasn't cool enough, there's even some badass studs. I'm obsessed.
