Entries in Forever 21 (2)

And I'm back!

It's been 2 and a half months since my last post. I am just so swamped with school that I couldn't find time to dress up and write up new posts, especially because my board exams are coming yikes!

Well I needed a break and am heading to New York for the weekend. My classy friend loves tea, so we are heading to Lowell for afternoon tea and sandwiches. She begged me not to wear jeans and a tee, so I decided to swank it up a little. 

This outfit is floral and still summery (I love the spring and summer months) and the best part is that not one of the pieces costs over $35 yay!

Here it is:

Top: Forever 21 Love 21 silk top

Bottom: H&M Floral pencil skirt

Shoes: Bamboo Pink Suede Pumps

Here I added a Kate Spade bag:

And with flats and a Zara blazer

Sorry for the blurry pictures! Ordered the new iPhone so hopefully they will be clearer! :)

Thanks for reading everyone! Missed you all!

Love, Kim

Outfit of the Day and Forever 21 Skirts

Again, major apologies about the long pauses in entries. My finals are coming up so I severely need to spend every waking moment reviewing. But last week, I was able to take a little break and after a HUGE lunch (Mongolian Hot Pot, which is amazing!) I needed to walk it off. The nearest store was a Forever 21 so I decided to see what was new for the Spring.

The clothes were generally very Spring-y, focused on pastels, lace, brights and colorblocking, which are always popular in the warmer weather. I saw a few skirts I liked and have some fitting room reviews for you. 

Before all that, here was my outfit for that day. I know it isn't obvious in the photo, thanks to the tucked in shirt, but that red skirt was TIGHT. You know how when you wake up you seem super skinny, then after a large meal your tummy sort of puffs out. Well, note to self, only wear that skirt on an empty stomach. 

Chanel Baby Cabas

Top: Ann Taylor Whisper Blouse. Love this blouse. Feels like silk, washes like polyester!

Bottom: H&M Red Pleated Skirt in 1 size too small

Shoes: Zara Wedges

Bag: Chanel Baby Cabas

One style I really, really love is the mix of pink and navy. The combination is whimsical and classic. When I saw this peach and navy skirt, I just had to try it on! Even though it had the extra beige panel on it.

Loved the colors but the small was a tad too big on me. I grabbed the XS and bought it without trying it on. Bad idea, the XS seems 2 inches shorter! Not appropriate at all for class. :( Plan to return or exchange. Maybe I can wear the S size lower on my waist?

Loved the length of this one and I like pairing white with pastels and brights during the spring. The material was kind of sheer however, (notice how white the pockets look compared to the rest of the material) so even at a steal price of $13, I passed.

I did end up with a couple of sheer lace tees to wear with dark denim and a fedora for my upcoming Hawaii trip. 

Shopping is always a great stress reliever!
