Emulating Audrey


Sweater: Zara • Cropped Pants: J.crew • Flats: Marais USA  

Elegant, ladylike, stylish, and beautiful all perfectly describe the wonderful Audrey Hepburn. After watching Breakfast at Tiffany's again recently, I was reminded of my love for the incredible actress. I immensely admire how poised she was, and strive to be a elegant woman like Audrey. I decided that it would be fun to interpret Audrey's classic style in my own way. I put together an outfit that well represents what she stood for, including a black sweater, cropped pants, ballet flats, and big sunglasses. Audrey typically wore a pearl necklace, and I added my own spin by wrapping one around my wrist.

The Old and The New




For the holidays I was gifted a set of adorable Kate Spade hair clips. The bright blue, green, yellow, orange, and pink hues in the clips' rhinestones instantly reminded me of my eighth grade graduation dress from Madewell. I knew the two would be a perfect combination for an outfit. To give the look a more casual, school-friendly vibe, I layered a burgundy Zara sweater over the dress and paired it with Converse.

P.S. I recently found out I was featured in a Teen Vogue article about how to style headbands. You can read the post here!

Strolling around Trastevere

Scarf: Emilio Pucci • Sweater: Alexa Chung for Madewell
Pants: J.crew • Flats: Marais USA

I didn't know what to expect before spending six nights in Rome. I had a foggy idea of how things would be, aware of the fact I'd be surrounded by people speaking Italian and be eating delicious pasta and gelato. Though this was true, so much more came out of my stay. The city took my breath away. Fascinating architecture consisted of ancient ruins, grand villas, and modern buildings. I was constantly surrounded by intriguing textures, whether it was a simple cobblestone street or a detailed carving in a renaissance statue. My family stayed in a quaint bed and breakfast in an area called Trastevere. We accomplished so much in our trip, visiting all the incredible landmarks and squeezing in some time to shop. Below are some of the highlights of the trip!

The astounding reflection of a bridge over the Tiber river.


Mind-blowing details from marble statues in the Vatican.
(I'd love a pair of those sandals!)

Light shining through the hole in the dome of the Pantheon, acting as a sun dial, displaying the time of day.

The colossal magnificence of the Colosseum.

A spectacular view of the city.
