Texture play.

Blue American Apparel denim shirt, Gold c/o LUXLA hexnut bracelet, CC Skye & F21 gold accessories, Tan c/o Francesca's Collections 'At a Crossroads' bag, Ivory ModCloth lace scallop shorts, Tan Sam Edelman Valin wedges.




Firstly want to apologize for being absent for such a long time...midterm season is insanely taking over my life at the moment along with extracurriculars + 2 jobs, so trying to get organized and stay on track.  But, trust me, it has been killing me not updating my blog as much as I have before in the summer.  I wanted to share with you another part of my new apartment, there is this aaamazin' rooftop, with a beautiful view of Berkeley.  I think this will be the spot for many outfit posts to come, it's just that pretty! and bonus, not a lot of ppl are around to look at me strangely as I pose in front of a camera lol.
--
For this outfit, wanted to play with textures (something I do quite often) -- paired a denim chambray AA shirt with lace scalloped shorts from ModCloth, and a spacious lovely woven bag (perfect for all my heavy books from school) from Francesca's Collections.  Who speaking of, excited to introduce to you as my newest sponsor! :)  To accent the outfit, gold accessories is always a go-to.  Francesca's Collection is also letting Inspirafashion's readers receive a wonderful 30% discount at their online shop!  At checkout, enter code: INSPIRA, which is valid until 10/31 for any single regular-priced item.

Off topic, this is thee first post with my new haircut!!  If you didn't notice yet :p or seen my tweets, I decided randomly to chop off my hair, it isn't drastically short, but a good 5 to 6 inches was cut off.  I think it's a nice change for fall :).  
And..just quick updates on things happening in my life: I'm a co-lead head stylist for a BARE Magazine photoshoot!!  It's been almost 2 months at my job in Urban Outfitters, and i loooove it :).  I got a B on my last midterm! :)..which is good for me bc i studied last minute lol. k, I hope you all will have a relaxing and fun weekend! Can't wait for more posts to come on ze bloggie :).
♥, Kathleen.

The rooftop is remarkable, and your new hair is super cute! The lace with the chambray is such a lovely look as well. Glad to have you back, girlie, and wishing you the best on your midterms.

It's not my style, and I never thought about this kind of pairing, but you make it really works! So creative of you, I just looove your creativity! Maybe I should venture out of my comfort zone once in a while and try this!

wow, sounds like you're busy, good for you!

Loving those shorts, so cute! & the hair looks great - i agree, sometimes long hair can become tooo long, getting a good 5 inches off definitely makes it fresher, i did the same recently too :)

I only posted for the gorgeous boots! haha ;D

No need for excuses. As mom tells me, 'school first. Everything else can wait', so I'm guessing work fits in to the equation somehow or another...
Still, congrats on passing! And kudos to the 'CHOP!' I knew there was Something different about this post...~
