Chambray Overload

I have been wearing this chambray top everywhere, especially in China. It's very lightweight so it's perfect to wear when its chilly in the morning or cool in the evening. I've basically been using it as a sweater here. Its extremely versatile and can be worn many ways as you can see above! Its such a staple when I travel because of its versatility. I would highly recommend getting one! Also, sorry for being so inactive lately! Its so hard to find time to blog with all the craziness here. I've been exploring and trying new foods. Yesterday I went to the People's Square and Park. I'll post some pictures on tomorrow's blog post! Thanks for reading loves!

First Day in Shanghai

Greetings from Shanghai! After a grueling 14 hour flight, I finally landed. I'm currently writing to you from my hotel in downtown Shanghai. I will be staying in this hotel for five weeks. It's pretty nice and very Western..thank God! However, as soon as you step outside the hotel, its a whirlwind of new sights! There's so many people, cars, noises, and restaurants. It is unlike anything I have ever seen before. Everyone here rides mopeds and bicycles and is hustling and bustling everywhere. Anyway, I woke up around 6:30 AM today (12 hour time difference from the U.S.) and headed downstairs for breakfast which was complimentary from the hotel. Since the hotel is very Western, the food was exactly like what I usually eat at home. After breakfast, I headed to Starbucks to get an iced coffee. It was $5.00... I definitely won't be going there again! I headed to class after fueling up on coffee and sat through an interesting but long three hour lecture. When class ended, we ventured to a noodle place for lunch. It was very intimidating ordering lunch because no one spoke English!!! I had my doubts but the noodles were flavorful and spicy AND ONLY $2.00! After lunch, we went on a tour of the ancient Gardens and went to an acrobat show. I had such a good first day and am looking forward to new adventures to come!

Marshalls Outfit

Happy Monday!! Another week that flew by. I can't believe its already the middle of June! Where is the time going? I leave for China in less than two weeks...EEEEP! I am trying to squeeze in some last minute errands, shopping, and blogging shoots. Over the weekend, I caught up with an old friend from middle school who started her own photography page on Instagram. Ever since I since I started this blog, I knew I wanted to work with a photographer and my dream has finally come true! I had so much fun shooting with her and she took some great shots (I AM OBSESSED!) Be sure to check her page out on Insta @vkephoto for other sneak peaks of our shoot. She captured some amazing pictures of this super cute and affordable outfit from Marshalls. My top is my new favorite piece of clothing...I love the back of it and the pom pom details are so cute! It can also be worn as a swimsuit cover-up! My white jeans and Jack Rogers are also from Marshalls. Unfortunately, Marshalls isn't online so I've linked a similar top and jeans. Hope you all have a good week! Keep an eye out for more pictures from my recent shoot!
