Quick vacation in Vegas for spring break. It felt good to get away from reality but we're now home. Had plans to go to LA today and have breakfast at Larchmont Bungalow but it feels good to just stay home and not doing anything since it won't be long till our next trip (we have a wedding to attend).

close to perfect

jeffrey campbell from nasty gal

New shoes that came in the mail today from. I have been eyeing these jeffrey campbells for like forever now and I finally ordered them from nasty gal. I have been looking for the perfect pair of platforms and these are pretty close to perfect. Funny because these are called the "Perfect Platform". How fitting?

1. Yojie Shabu Shabu for lunch.
2. Late night pho run with the boyfriend.
3. Yogurtland before my Econ Stats class. Pomegranate raspberry tart is my favoooorite flavor.
4. T by Alexander Wang skirt I scored from Nordstrom Rack. Has an awesome silver zipper in the back.
5. Went back to Nordstrom Rack (three days later) for more T by Alexander Wang (metallic oversize sweater and gray romper)!
6. Nail polish I picked up at American Apparel.

A few instagram photos since the last instagram post (follow me @katherinelou). Tomorrow is supposed to be date night but we're going to have to see if school work will allow us to have date night since my boyfriend and I didn't finish our spreadsheets for Econ Stats. I won't be too bummed if we don't have date night since we're going to Vegas and we get to also spend a whole day in LA next week. But I am bummed that I am a spreadsheet away from spring break. I so need it right now.

jacket from kimski makes, dress from nasty gal, zara boots, and marc by marc jacobs classic q francesca purse

Boyfriend and I had date night the other day. Ate at Shabu Shabu House in Little Tokyo, grabbed drinks at the bar, and shopped at American Apparel and Kimski Makes. I love Thursday date nights especially when we're in LA! Can't wait for our adventure next week and the week after we'll be in Vegas.

Escaping reality for a couple days (or even just a day such as Thursday) is really what I need right now. Applied for graduation earlier this month and I'll be purchasing my cap and gown soon for the ceremony in May. Graduating officially in December AND it's a bit frightening thinking about the future. The thought of jobs and grad school has been stressing me out for the last couple days. I've always dreamed for the day that I graduate college but now that it's almost here and it feels so real, it's kind of scary to say the least.

Oh! and don't forget that if you have instagram, follow me @katherinelou for frequent updates. It's just so much easier to upload photos with my iPhone!
