fringe, party of one

I thought today called for something especially fun because I signed up for my junior year, spring semester classes; after which I’ll be done with my basics AND my last semester of Spanish! *shimmies in my fringe jacket* Mass communication majors require 2 years of foreign language and learning another language is just as hard as you can imagine so, estoy muy feliz de estar casi terminado! I’m usually very much so behind in signing up for the next semester’s courses so I felt that because I actually signed up on time and had no issues getting into the courses I needed (a first time thing), it was cause for celebration! *shimmies again for full effect*

Attending a small school means the capacity in classrooms are a lot smaller, this makes upper level courses a hassle to to get into. In general, most upper level courses are pre-requisites of others, so its super important to get into those classes when they are offered either in the fall or spring only semesters so that you aren’t getting behind on graduating. When you attend a small school like me though, you have to worry about those classes filling up before you are able to be advised and sign up for those classes. I’ve had issues with my schedule the past two semesters but luckily I still had basics to do anyway and I didn’t get behind. This is why I’m super glad I was on top of it this semester!

I’m obsessed with the super cool vibes this ombre, fringe jacket is letting off – I felt today was the day to wear it out! It makes every move I make twice as dramatic to get the full fringe sway effect, lol, it’s just so fun. I toned down the outfit a bit by pairing it with a simple white tank and my girlfriend jeans because lets face it, this jacket is a party in itself. The fringe jacket makes for a super fun and edgy street style outfit but it would also be perfect to wear to a holiday party this season!

I’m loving on these Amuse Society girlfriend jeans I bought from Sewn, I have so many things I wanna pair them with!! I love my boyfriend jeans, but girlfriend jeans are much more flattering – they are designed with girls in mind! The differences in the two are girlfriend jeans sit higher on the hips, are slightly tighter, and have a slim, straight leg. Boyfriend jeans sit directly on the hips and are very much loose and baggy all over; I still adore them, but they create a much different shape and I favor the girlfriend look.

I played on the fringe look and paired my blue-beaded fringe choker – I love any good reason to wear this choker! Like the jacket, it is a big statement piece so I’m careful how I style it. I think it pairs perfectly with this look and adds the perfect extra flair. I also pulled out my gun metal, blue iridescent Kendra Scott earrings that looked so cool with my choker. I finished this look with the cutest pair of mule loafers, also from Sewn. The shiny, leather look of the loafer makes my outfit look sleek and polished and draws attention to my statement piece jacket!

I’m happy to be celebrating tiny victories like today’s with adorable jackets and jewelry but signing up for next semester’s classes only means finals are just around the corner AND I’m closer to graduation than I wanna believe. One more college semester separates me from being a college senior. I’m about to be an adult for real, without the blanket of college – that’s a wonderfully scary thought! This next year and a half will surely fly by so I intend to learn as much as I can and enjoy myself in the meantime. These are the times that will truly define the rest of my life, I can choose to believe it or not, so I intend to make them count.

As always,

Ara
