I rarely ever travel all the way to Baltimore anymore, but I miss the days when I roamed Charm City during a high school free period or even after class. I found myself meeting classmates from back in the day in Canton this past weekend.
Graduating is a great and sad experience. You’re growing from a previous stage in your life into someone new, and everyone who’s ever graduated from an educational school, whether it’s middle school, secondary education or college, knows exactly what that one feeling is.
That’s exactly how I felt when I returned to Baltimore this weekend to meet a dear and near friend from Bryn Mawr who currently lives in New York.
I paired my Shay Mitchell x Quay Australia sunglasses with my new black lace shorts from Nordstrom. These sunglasses are one of my favorite pairs because it has a matte rubbery finish and almost a mirror-like finish. I’m also a huge Pretty Little Liars fan so naturally I find myself infatuated with Shay’s style!
The shorts are extra comfy and fit tight on the waist with an elastic (but not too confining) band and the finish on the ends of the short has just a fringe of lace. It’s just a bit to turn a head or two, but just a bit enough so the pants don’t appear like pajama or lingerie.
I bought this top about a year ago and loved it for its quality silk and loose fit. It’s cut short enough so that it pairs perfectly with high waisted shorts or with some low-cut jeans so you can flash a bit of abs.
No summer outfit is ever complete without sneakers. Whenever I style my outfit with pink, I throw on my Reebok pumps because it has just a hint of baby pink. The inside is completely printed with sheep (for Chinese New Year). These are my first pairs of pumps, so not going to lie, it took a couple tries to figure out how to work the actual sneaker.
Finally, I’m not too much for flashy jewelry so I threw on some simple pieces (all gifts from friends). My obsession with bows is almost a signature statement starting from when I was five years old. I always try to have at least one bow on, whether it’s small earrings or a hair piece.
