blouse from nasty gal, h&m skirt and wedges

A lot simpler than the previous outfit but that's because I wore this to school. Started my second summer school class on Monday (Human Sexuality) and it's going pretty okay. Not as challenging as my Finance class that ended last week (which I ended up with a B...darn but finance is pretty challenging so not so bad I guess) but I guess an easy A will do for now. Especially with microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory, law and economics, managerial economics, business ethics, and geology lab for fall semester. Fall semester is going to be one heck of a semester.

If you're curious at all (while I'm on the subject about school) I guess I'll say a little about myself that some of you may or may not know. I am a Business Economics major and minoring in International Economics. After I graduate, I would like to work in the finance department for any fashion company (whether it be Barneys New York or Vogue yadda yadda). After about 5 or so years, I want to get pursue a Master of Business Administration and a law degree and eventually a doctorate. From there, I want to pursue a career as a financial analyst, forensic accountant, an economist, or work for the International Monetary Fund. So that's my career plan. Ideally, I would LOVE to own a boutique or get paid to travel but this is the safest route for me! People say do what you love and there's something satisfying about pursuing a career in economics/business/finance/accounting. I can't quite put my finger on it.

do whatever makes you happy

h&m x lanvin dress and h&m shoes

And I'm doing just that. Got all dressed up and had absolutely nowhere to go. Truth is, I've bought this dress months ago and have yet to wear it. Then I thought to myself, why wait to wear it when I can wear it now? So I pranced around in this poufy dress. It was fun. Guess I need to take more risks.

As my mom would always say, "You're not getting any younger."

afternoon light

topshop dress and h&m shoes

Around 7:00PM to about 7:30PM, I find the natural light to be amazing. The light has a rich, warm tone that fascinates me whenever I'm out and about or driving west right before sunset. On the other hand, I want to take photos when the sun rises. Pretty sure it'll give off a completely different vibe and tone. Need to train my sleep cycle so that on my days off, I'll wake up around 6 0r 7 and not the usual noon.

As far as the dress, it's my new favorite. I actually have a lot of favorites but this is my current favorite. It can be dressed down or dressed up. Day or night kind of dress. The color and print of the dress makes it suitable during the day and the sequins make it a great date night dress. Don't be surprised if I wear this dress more than once!
