holidays in the hills

button down: urban outfitters, pants + cardigan + hat: H&M, shoes: converse

As of 6 PM PST yesterday, I am a woman freeeee of finals. Hallelujah. Instead of crawling into bed and catching up on some TV, I fought my hermit tendencies and went to soak up some holiday spirit. Strolling down Wilshire and the likes was refreshingly peaceful and a nice break from the tense atmosphere of the library/ campus. Of course, stopping by Urth Caffe and getting some boba + pumpkin pie was a pretty decent incentive as well. 

Here is the beloved oxford shirt I was gushing about in my previous post, thrown on before I rushed out the door to my physics test, paired with these pants from my pre-pre-pre blogger days (think 5-6 years ago). I threw on the hat post-exam, before I headed out for my Beverly Hills excursion. I'd like to say the whole combination is inspired by some imaginary, menswear-inspired, Parisian street styler.

Now I'm off to Jersey. See you in 2014, LA!
