DIY studded collar



I was afraid I was tiring you all with my endless outfit posts! So, here is my take on the DIY studded collar tutorial. Some of you have probably seen tutorials like this before, but since I received a lot of studs in the mail yesterday, I thought I might as well share my experience with you guys <3 :)

Glass Harmonica

As promised, my lovely Current/Elliot jeans! The same day I wore these, I received my issue of Teen Vogue in the mail, and found the exact same pair of jeans in another color. Pretty exciting stuff. I can't get enough of printed denim right now and if I get myself a few new pairs, my mom would complain and say that I'll probably only wear them once, just like I did with those colored skinnies I got during my 13-year-old semi scene-kid phase. Anyway, the prints I've been seeing in spring collections have seemed to be an amazing way to bring a wow-factor into one's outfit, and these jeans are really a testament to that! And yes, these are the same shoes (in another color) that I featured in my Relax My Beloved post, but they're my mom's! We're just the mother-daughter pair that kind of does corny things like that.

Also, I know I said I would show you guys my Valentine's look, but I didn't think it was pretty enough for you all - forgive me? How is this new background though? I really like the lighting!

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you lovely people! I hope you all are spending time with your loved ones! This isn't my v-day look, but this was my look from yesterday. It's actually spirit week at my school and yesterday was pyjama day. The idea was for me to not look like I was in pyjamas with my shoes and jacket on, and I wanted to pair the structured jacket and darker shoes with the two soft items on the inside. I've been coveting a pair of skinny sweatpants that I could wear outside of the house for a while now, and the distressed part was definitely a bonus :)

I am really excited for an upcoming trip to Italy at the end of March and Thailand at the end of May. I really want spring, and this cold weather has me ripping way too many tights. I ordered a few spring/summer items from Asos while planning for the trips and I can't wait for them to arrive. I got a pair of Current/Elliot printed jeans the other day and can't wait to show you guys! <3

Relax my beloved






(Chloe boots, Mango sweater, Theory button-down, H&M socks, shorts from Taiwan, corduroy jacket)

I know I haven't been posting a lot recently, because I haven't had the time to take photos! I'm so sorry :( I promise next week will be better. Anyhoo, this is just a quick post before I head out. I love this jacket of my dad's - it's so warm, and the inside is a nice flannel that is perfect for sleeping on during class.

Rust






(Accessorize ring, Cos Sweater, Topshop shirt, Taiwan rust-colored leggings/pants, Mom's Balenciaga bag)
As we speak, I am at a three-day table tennis (I know, I know, way to fit the stereotypes) tournament at my school - so, I won't have time to update any outfits, sadly! Nor do I think you guys would want to see me in my sweats, haha. Anyhow, I took this look yesterday but hadn't had the time to upload it till now as blogger wasn't working. 

About this look - I love these new leggings that I got because of the color, the comfort, and the versatility. I have been searching for a dark colored legging like this one for a while, and this color just did the trick! I wanted to combine the deep color with something unexpected, like blue, and the washed-out grey of the bag was the perfect neutral complement to both. Also, don't you guys love how delicate this ring is? 

Anyway, sorry again for the lack of outfits posts in advance. Hopefully I'll be able to get some blogging done, but are there any specific types of posts that I should do more of? Lifestyle, inspiration (I have never done one yet!), wishlists? Please, tell!
