Sunday brunch

My best friends from home visited this weekend, and we had a great brunch together this morning before they left to head back to NYU. It was my first time at this charming restaurant in the Square- Tory Row- and we all loved it. Happy Sunday everyone!

This week has been crazy, and I have three papers to write at the moment. I sure wouldn't mind working hard in those long socks and brogues, though. Good luck to all my fellow college students through midterms, and see you on the other side!

a la jay-z

Leave it up to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to make all black ensembles that are far from mundane. The textured fabrics in their ensembles don't look like overkill when they are uniformly dark, but still provide an eclectic experience for the eyes. When I saw the collection, though, I wasn't surprised; Mary Kate and Ashley has been doing all-black so right for years now. Here are looks from The Row Pre-Fall and Fall 2012 collection, Ashley Olsen, and others that tell us that black is always chic- even when worn head-to-toe.

As Jay-Z once so wisely rapped, "Black cards, black cars, all black everything." Ha.

tiny toys and tots

I recently lost my favorite ring that my friends bought for me for my 17th birthday, so I've been on the hunt for a new ring ever since. I find myself drawn to two types: the thin, accented ring, and the hammered, irregular ring. Here are the one that struck me the most for their simplistic beauty. I'll make sure I'll update on which I end up buying!

(via free people)

If only Valentine's Day were in the summer, these looks from Freja for Free People would be perfect for the holiday. Wanted to wish you all a happy v-day filled with roses, chocolate, and love! Much love to my mom, brother, and lovely friends at home and here at school.

bring the boys out

I seldom find myself genuinely connecting with my Korean culture because I was born and raised in the US, but one Korean TV show has me hooked- Kpop Star. The show boasts millions of views on Youtube, and shout-outs from news channels and American celebrities alike. Here is my favorite video of four talented young girls that I can't stop playing (just ask my roommates):

The cold Boston winter has me craving for something bright.. and these pictures satisfied me (but not enough to keep me from hunting for the perfect yellow addition to my wardrobe). The only thing getting me through this depressing cold is the thought of spending spring break soaking up the sun in Mexico-- Cancun, here I come! This post is an hommage to you and your gorgeous beaches.

current lust

The perfect shade of pink on the soles flawlessly offset the fear of masculinity that sometimes scares me away from brogues. I know this is the second tan/neutral shoe I've posted in a row, but this one is far more affordable and realistic for a poor college student like me. Cambridge, get ready for the cutest oxfords you've seen!
