Grown-up.

White H&M blouse, Silver Forever 21 necklace, Brown gifted vintage leather Hobo International Candis crossbody bag, Tan Forever 21 suede shorts, Dark brown thrifted belt, Gold F21 rings, Ivory Zara suede wedges.

I've been a big fan of the brand See by Chloe for a long time now, and decided to create an outfit inspired by it along with hints of other little accessories that caught my eye.  I love the soft feminine clean lines in any Chloe collection and wanted to include that by adding a soft sheer white blouse from H&M, suede F21 shorts, vintage leather Hobo International bag, and suede Zara wedges.  This is a very grown-up outfit for me, I guess I am getting more mature with my choice in clothing...moving on from the junior section in H&M to the other side of the store is a big step lol.
I definitely have to say this is one of my faavorite go-to bags when I'm in a rush to leave and have every essential item handy in one bag -- the Candis Hobo International crossbody bag is perfect for that.  It has little compartments for everything -- my wallet, keys, hand sanitizer (keepin' clean! :p), IDs, iPod.
I found these suede shorts at F21 along with this really cool silver almost tribal necklace.  I love finding jewelry pieces that are so unique, glad I found this necklace.  Btw, I'm lusting for this House of Harlow necklace at the moment! :p
--
Thought I'd take advantage of this post to also update you on what is happening in my life.  I have sadly one more month left of summer until my final year at Cal starts!  So sad how time flew by so quickly...my little brother the other day asked me about how AP Calculus was..sigh, I still remember being a senior in HS not too long ago.  My 21st bday is coming up in September.  I'm trying to apply for internships left and right, and finally figured out what I want to do in fashion after I graduate -- styling or visual merchandising.

Anyways, so glad to have you all here along for the ride and caan't wait to blog more this coming year, so many collaborations with many brands & companies!  Stay tuned for lots of interesting posts to come! :)
Thank yous o much again lovelies for all the support and love.  I hope you have an aamazing sunny fun weekend!
♥, Kathleen.

Love your top!!! That style and silhouette is a go-to for me. You look gorgeous and good luck with starting your final year. It is a bit unnerving to realize just how fast you're growing up and moving up in the world. But at least YOU, my friend, can do it in style. :]

i love this outfit, you do look more grown up and professional. that's great that you found a field that you like. i'm leaning towards being an editor or buyer.

hi kathleen!

awww... those shoes look amazing on you! glad you found them, AND at such a great price. i think that's one of my shopping downfalls... it's so hard to wait for sales, even though i know zara has the BEST sales.

and congrats on your future collabs, can't wait to see!

take care, aimee
