Weekend Patterns

This summer I have unexpectedly been really into patterns, one of which is gingham. See below for how I styled it this weekend (featuring me frowning and holding another beverage but this time it's coffee aka the love of my life). 


Top is from & Other Stories, skort is from GAP, shoes are from Vince, oval bracelet is from COS, rings are from Madewell, glasses are from Ace & Tate, hoop earrings are from Free People. 

Smoothies and Stripes


(black cami top is from & Other Stories, black pants and shoes are from Vince, black backpack is from Zara, silver watch is from Cluse, smoothie is the Joyful Almond from Juice Generation which I highly recommend)

p.s. this post was not sponsored by Juice Generation but I would love to be sponsored by Juice Generation. If anyone has any Juice Generation connects, hit me up. Maybe it's ridiculous to pose with a smoothie but Ebrima said that the straw matched my pants so I had to hold it for the photographs.

Blanket Scarves and Muji Pens

Packing for Amsterdam was no easy feat. After going through my entire closet, I settled on bringing a various assortment of black articles of clothing. Fortunately for me, a lot of the people that I've encountered here so far also exclusively wear a variety of neutral tones. 

In the midst of stressful packing, I somehow forgot to bring a scarf with me. I got this camel colored poncho at Samsøe & Samsøe on my third day after cold weather got the better of me. It's a really great day to night piece because it doubles as a cozy blanket for evenings in my cold apartment. 

Despite my scarf dilemma, I did remember to pack about 30 size 0.38 pens from Muji. These pens are great for literally everything. For me, it's reached a point where they're the only thing that I can take notes with in class. I also brought three sketchbooks that are designed by the Princeton Architectural Press. The design of the sketchbooks is unique because every page is laid out with a different grid that you can work with while drawing or choose to completely ignore. I love this because working in them never gets boring!
