#WhatAmIDoing2K17 an #ootd

Alright, we are in full swing here. 
Graduation Fashion Show preparations are beginning and stress levels are already starting to rise. I can't say that I'm exactly ready to leave the hallways of the Design wing behind. I'll definitely miss the trips to Fabricana and walking around the Uni looking for OOTD locations - looool. There's still a couple months of craziness to go and instead of thinking about job hunting and where I might be in 3-4 months I'm going to try and focus on being in the moment. Breathe in and breathe out with Om... Stay in the moment Jessica. Savor graduation. 

Also, I'm digging my socks and shoe combination, aside from the fact that these shoes have fallen apart after 2 years of wear.

This song has been on repeat for like 2 weeks.

soft as silk, sweet as sugar an #ootd

A teacher of mine told me that I've changed since last year. He said I was calm, more mature, I assured him that it's only the first week of school and, not to get too ahead of himself with my personal growth (lol). However, I did tell him that I feel like I have grown up a bit, I feel more sure of myself and more sure of the person I am becoming. So overall, good first week of school (that's really all I'm trying to say). 

Here's a throwback, kind-of.

Drafts an #ootd

Goodbye Summer, but what a way to end. School is the perfect routine for me right now. I can't believe this is my final year. I feel like I am more sure of myself then I have ever been. Though no sense of direction, I have a complete sense of accomplishment. I've learned a lot this summer, I grew an enormous amount, as least a couple inches for sure. I've realized friends come and go, there is always a way to make the best of the worst situations, and that nothing in my life will change unless I work for it to happen. No, I can't exactly picture my life, 5 years or 10 years from now, but my goals consist of moving to New York and eventually having a business of my own.
*End of Wednesday night ramble. 

P.S. My outfit is super cute today, the Velvet top was a big hit. I'm talking top of the charts - hah.

Here's what's on repeat as I read a 62 page article oh stylish ethics, gotta love fashion school.

t-minus an #ootd

Counting the last couple days of my work contract, the days till Kate's Birthday, for school to start, for August to end and Fall to begin. Trying to savor the last of the summer nights.
Enjoy these sassy photos of me on a rooftop. I should really just invest in a camera.

New tune I'm digging. This and Frank Ocean (duh). All the Frank Ocean

Spotted an #ootd

Recently my life has turned into train rides to and from the city and working by the beach. This is my official last summer break, crazy to realize. I'm so excited to keep working during my final year. Also excited that Kate is back from her travels, that it's going to be sweater weather next month and that my music list has been bumpin' lately.

Just for taste:

P.S. I thrifted a black velvet sweater today - stoked about it.
