last day of being 28 years and 364 days old.

 dress: c/o eshakti / boots: Belk / lipstick: MAC (ruby woo) / ring: pandora (gift from mother in law) / watch: c/o Feral Watches

yeah, it's not the big three oh, but there is something special significant stellar about looking at the last year of your 20's right in the face. i don't exactly feel old (which might have to do with people thinking i'm still in high school - i take it as a compliment and hope these asian genes carry me into my later years in life) but i do feel liberated - from insecurities or worries that i used to have in my early 20s. a lot can happen in 10 years but it is def makes me smile to look back and see how i have changed (or how i have not!) since i first stepped into the twenties. i feel thankful to God and energized for the coming year.

***

and on two more important notes:
1. that collar on this dress. i swoon.
2. tickets for Catching Fire on sale midnight tonight. you are welcome.

much love.
{happy monday, friend.}

  9. I'm in looooooove with the detail of this dress. Happy close to be your birthday birthday :) And I really am salivating at the idea of feeling much more stable once I'm passed the early twenties or twenties stage, of course I'm enjoying the ups but I really can't wait to feel more sure of myself. So that's awesome!

  15. You're so beautiful! I turned 30 this year, I kinda know what you mean. I wasn't sad or depressed or anything, I like how you put it - there's something about looking back and seeing how you've changed & everything. I am exited to be in my 30's, I feel a little more grown up!! Thanks for the catching fire tip :)
