17TH BIRTHDAY!



Chiffon Cape Dress c/o Oasap, Lock & Key Belt c/o Romwe, Forever 21 Cut Out Cuffs, White Mountain Booties


Today, I turned 17 years old! :) Do you guys know the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower? The movie of it is coming out next week! I keep up with Liz Osban's blog, and her post immediately convinced me to buy the e-book this afternoon and read it! Since it was my birthday, and it's my half day (only 2 periods today), I decided to devote this day to doing whatever I felt like; I refused to allow myself to do anything remotely related to school or college.

When I got home, I watched Adventure Time while I ate lunch, then I took a nap, impulse bought the e-book and dove right into it from the start. Later in the afternoon, I took outfit photos and took my dogs on a walk! When my Dad came home, we took the more stubborn dog (Charlie :P) who freezes up on walks, out one more time cause he refused to walk more than past two houses today when I tried to take him. For dinner, we had Buca di Bepo: spaghetti, mashed potatoes, and calamari. And my birthday cake was an Oreo cake! The supermarket put my Mom's name on accident -.- but it's okay. Tonight, I'll probably watch Iron Man! Today I really enjoyed and savored the happiness that can come from the little things that you don't usually take the time to appreciate when your mind is muddled with schoolwork and college apps. A normal day for me is coming home from school, and napping out of exhaustion, procrastinating out of stress, doing homework late, and going to sleep at 1 AM. But today was the day where it didn't matter about all the other obligations in the future I had. All that mattered was what was happening right now. And for the first day in a long time, I felt at peace, and at ease, and I definitely felt infinite.

PS: I just picked out this awesome purple gothic print, bodysuit and this dip-dyed, off-the-shoulder crop top from Motel that I'm really excited for to arrive! :) If anyone's planning on buying anything from Motel, you can take advantage of the discount below! <3

  16. Happy Birthday! You look great in this outfit! The belt and the bracelets look so nice with the dress!

    Ah yes, sometimes when we're busy, we tend to overlook the little things in life that make us happy. I certainly have that when I'm stressed out from work and uni!
