Almost is Never Enough

Top-Phillip Lim for Target, Boots- Zara
Taken on iPhone4s

I woke up before 6am to get to Target only to find out at 7 that the specific Target didn't carry Phillip Lim for Target. I rushed over to a different one, stood in line, and power walked inside when they opened and picked up as many bags as I could grab and this shirt. I love what I got so you'll be seeing more of the pieces.

Sometimes Dreary

Dress- TNA via Aritzia, Wedges- H&M, Backpack- H&M

Simple outfit but I love these shoes and needed another reason to wear them. They're super comfy and make me like 4 inches taller so props to H&M for their every now and then amazing shoe collection. Oh, and props to them for designing this backpack because I love cats and I love black and so I love this backpack.

Other cool things in my life: meeting and making new friends aka networking without the "working", not having to take Dari to the vet for the next year, and homemade hard tacos.

I'd Do it All Again

Shirt- F21, Shorts- Uniqlo, Shoes- H&M

Been spending a lot of time in Walnut Creek "studying" (aka shopping since Walnut Creek is packed with stores). It's so hard to focus when a lot of my friends are off abroad, traveling and eating good food.

Oh, and "I'd Do it All Again" by Corrine Bailey Rae is perfection.

San Francisco Flowers

Shirt- Thrifted, Shorts- Uniqlo, Shoes- Zara, Headband- Umbre

"When you come to San Francisco, be sure to wear flowers in your hair."
I spent this weekend with my family celebrating Father's Day. I also spent the weekend frantically studying for anatomy because I thought my midterm was on Monday but it's actually on Wednesday (tomorrow). Yes, I know I'm silly.

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Skirt- Aritzia, Shoes- Zara

I really think these shoes could make even a burlap sack look good. They took a little breaking in but they are pretty much the perfect summer sandals. Part gladiator, part cut-out boot, part boho (there's a slight fringe on the zipper backs), pointed, comfortable, and black. Can't really ask for anything more from shoes in my opinion.

Goals for this summer. Ace classes. Keep updating this blog. Keep working on html/css/photoshop. Try not to die from my cat allergies (I guess allergies are an impediment for an aspiring crazy cat lady). Travel. Adventure. Finish Game of Thrones.

When Finals End..

Hi friends. I'm still alive. I just needed some inspiration to get back on that blogging hobby so hopefully I'll get some decent shots after finals are over. I'm also a new cat mommy (her name is Dari). If you follow me on instagram (@missyouri) you've probably been overloaded with pictures of her.

Shirt- Thrifted, Skirt- Thrifted, Sweater- Aritzia, Boots- Dolce Vita

My brother always jokes that I absorb the happiness from around me because I'm so happy. This is apparently the reason why every time I go back home to SoCal, the cold weather follows me there. So I decided to suck the color out of my surroundings too.

Sweater- Thrifted, Skirt- DIY, Beanie- Umbre, Boots- Dolce Vita

Hey there everyone. Hope y'all are having a great start to your weekend. My weekend started off with facing a bunch of my personal shortcomings and trying to figure out what to do about them. Obviously, there is nothing that can be done about some things, like personal physical insecurities. The only thing you can do is to change your outlook on these insecurities until they become no more.

This is the low point of my story and as long as I do something about it, it can only go up from here.

Drowning in School because of Laziness

My brother came up to Berkeley to hang out and munch (I food coma'd out all weekend, sleeping about 12 hours per day but whatevs). Here's a few pics from our trip to Sutro Baths in SF. If you live in the Bay Area and haven't been there yet, you need to go! It's really such a beautiful ruin.


Oh, and Fenton's is the best.

Overall, I think it was worth it

 Overalls- Thrifted, Shirt- Brandy Melville, Boots- Jeffrey Campbell

I went on a hunt at the Huntington Beach Goodwill a few weeks ago looking for a pair of overalls to revamp. The workers there were cool and all joined me on the hunt (this of course gave me the nickname "Overalls Girl" from the staff). I was about to go home, sad that I couldn't find a pair when these came out from the back. I snatched them up and cut off the mom legs and sewed the sides a little to turn it into the denim overall dress that you see here.

Of course, my random urge to get a pair of overalls wouldn't have surfaced had it not been for Anisa (find her at She's been parading around in her pair for a while now and I envy how sleek and comfortable hers look!

Messy hair and ripped jeans

Sweater-LF Stores, Jeans- Thrifted (Levi's), Boots- ShoeMint

Always gotta mess up my hair before I leave anywhere. I hate it when it's really nicely done without a strand out of place. 

Thank goodness for the weekend. Meeting up with Jason and Anisa for some Margaritas to chill out.
Hope y'all have a nice Friday!

Kimono Cardigan- Thrifted, Shirt- Brandy Melville, Shorts- Cotton Candy, Boots- SoleStruck

Went to American Cupcake in the marina to get brunch and then went to the annual LF sale this past weekend. Didn't really get much goodies, but it was really fun! I was joined by my friend Amanda and blogger love Anisa from Young and Seamless. We had the worst time finding parking, but it was all worth it when we stopped by Japantown on our way home so I could indulge in some yummy ramen.

Anisa <3

And Amanda! Photocreds go to her, except for this picture :]

  Outerwear- Thrifted, Top- Urban Outfitters, Shorts- ANGL, Boots- Jeffrey Campbell

Got a new camera! (Canon t3i) Need some time to play around with it, but I'm expecting way better photo quality from this baby. Shweeeeeet.

Also, I've realized that my blog pictures haven't been the best quality because of the way blogger works in terms of resizing images. I resized most of my blog pictures via photoshop this time and they look way better.
