San Diego Zoo

Winter break has been quite eventful this year. I haven't had any down time until now and even so it's only because I'm sick and have lost my voice. While most winter events have been family oriented and therefore lacking in photos, I wanted to share some images from my recent visit to the San Diego Zoo. I shot with a Canon 85mm f/1.8 for the first time in years and it was a great experience. I really loved the lens and the Zoo overall :) HOWEVER, parking in San Diego is HORRIBLE...horrible.

Plaid


Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving <3 So it took forever but I finally found the perfect plaid skirt and it was at American Apparel! AA is quickly becoming my favorite store for fall. They seriously have everything you need to layer for the cold weather. I'm wearing it with a top also from AA along with a UNIQLO coat, Wildfox Couture sunnies and a Melody Ehsani necklace.






What I'm wearing:

American Apparel Plaid Skirt & Turtleneck top
Melody Ehsani I.D. Necklace
Anne Klein Trouser Socks
UNIQLO Wool Coat
Wildfox Couture Cat Sunnies

Until next time <3

Outerwear

Lately I have been obsessed with outerwear! I'm not sure if it's due to some insatiable passion for coats and jackets or if it's just because I'm so cold all the time. But either way, I'm seriously loving wool right now <3 Now, neither of the jackets in this post are going to be wool...but they are wonderful non the less!

I was lusting after this UNIF jacket for months!! However, I waited until it went on sale at Urban Outfitters before buying because I'm trynna save huhu ;_; I was lucky to find it at my local Urban Outfitters earlier this week! 


And now this one...is my new favorite texture! I had no idea faux shearling felt so nice *A* I had no idea shearling in general felt so nice! The shearling items I had tried on in the past were all a bit off (texture-wise) but this jacket was perfect! I love that it's cropped too because I am rather petite and coats are usually too long for me. This faux shearling cropped jacket is from Mango


That's all for now. 
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Urth Cafe



Yesterday Miju and I went to Urth Cafe in Downtown LA to have breakfast. It was my first time ordering food there and it was delicious. I ordered a Belgian Waffle with side order of fruit and it was so perf omg. must. go. back. 

Here's what I was wearing: 


Dr. Martens Jadon 8-Eye Platform Boot

Dimepiece cropped hoodie in black
American Apparel Printed Spandex Jersey Harem Pant in White Black Afrika
Target handbag

Getting a hold of these pants was a quest. I was looking for them at American Apparel stores for about three months until I finally found them on Melrose. So happy. Also, I wear these boots to school everyday. I wear them all day, everyday. I love them so much. So much.
