I FEEL LIKE KURT COBAIN


Plaid Shirt - Urban Outfitters, Denim Jacket - GAP, Leopard Coat - vintage, Jeans - Urban Outfitters, Boots - Dolce Vita from Dear Fieldbinder, Hat - H&M, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff

Bringing the grunge back in all its gritty glory, but also prettying it up with some luxurious leopard print (totally faux, of course). I haven't worn plaid for a whole year before I busted it out again this day. A crazy thought because I was obsessed with the tomboyish pattern in high school and college. Could hardly go a day without it. But never before have I worn it in orange. I dig it. Some days you just want to kick back and look tough. Plaid, denim, and leopard are the perfect mix for that.

The weekend is finally here once again and I am so ready to kick back with my friends here in Philly! I'm thinking . . . crazy, late nights out! And lots of dancing and laughing.
It's been one of those weeks! We deserve it! And I'm getting my hair did. Finally going lighter and getting my wierdy wierdy little bangs fixed!

In other news, my parents are coming to visit my sister and I on the east coast in a few days, so I'll be heading to NYC next weekend to spend time with them. It's going to be so nice to finally catch up with them, now that I only get to see them about twice a year and sporadically over phone or Skype. The time spent apart form my family makes me feel so lucky that even though we live on separate coasts, we are still so close and can rely on each other for just about everything. No matter what happens in my life, my parents have got my back. And knowing that they are so proud of me makes me even more happy deep down down down. Like any other person, family can always get on one's nerves and have battles to overcome, even when they are separated by miles and miles, but in the end I don't think I could have a better support system. I really am so very lucky.
