Wearing:// Top & Skirt: Misa Los Angeles (Top) (Skirt), Shoes: Michael Kors (April Block Heel Sandal), Earrings: Bauble Bar 

      The moment I knew we were spending Christmas in a warm climate, I knew that I needed to hit Revolve so I could step out in the best way possible. Although I am lucky to go to school in an equally as lovely place in terms of weather, it is rare at school that I go further than putting on a simple pair of jeans and a graphic tee. That being said, I knew that this two piece Misa Los Angeles getup would be a key look for our trip to Havana, Cuba. I love it because, while the set looks amazing together, I would certainly wear the top and skirt separately to create other looks. Accessory wise, on the way to Cuba, we stopped in Miami for a few days, which is where I picked up these super fun Bauble Bar earrings. Going into the trip, we were aware that we would have the opportunity to ride in one of the signature, vintage cars that are so characteristic of Havana. However, it was a complete and utter coincidence that my pink earrings matched the car to a t and I couldn't have been more excited about that (#bloggerprobs). 

     Ironically, I am writing this post as the East coast faces what newsoutlets are coining a "bomb cyclone". It started snowing at 10pm last night and hasn't stopped one bit; naturally, I suited up in my ski gear only to trudge through the knee-high snow and to snap some photos. Soon after, I retreated to my house to indulge in chocolate Starbucks hot cocoa and mint-chocolate chip marshmallows. That is what I call divine. 


San Diego, Game Day, Home & Other Random Updates

      Hi everyone! It has been a hot minute since I have done a proper life update on my time at USC and this semester in general. This has truly been a whirlwind of a semester-- from increasingly challenging classes, including two French classes and a pest of a writing class, to football game days to joining a new student organization, I have been entirely busy and barely squeezed in my weekly episode of How to Get Away With Murder. Aside from the trials of studying and trudging through the semester, I did have a nice semester in terms of exploring more of California. Each of these trips was initiated by my friend Morgan, who I've mentioned before and is featured in numerous photos here, whether it was for her lovely birthday weekend in Newport or a trip down to San Diego for a (failed) attempt at going to the Southern California lantern festival. In addition to these much needed get aways, I spent quite a bit of time on campus participating in home games, aka the craziest phenomenon there ever was, to attending my IR frat's invite, which is why I was all dolled up in the last picture. Ironically, the theme of our invite was "A Night in Havana", and just two weeks later, I was actually in Havana, Cuba! 

     Anyone who attends USC would agree that this was theeeee longest semester ever, mostly because we do not have a fall break before Thanksgiving so everyone is toast by the time finals roll around. Given the burnout of summer classes combined with this strenuous semester, I am, of course, entirely dreading spring semester. It is certainly going to be a busy semester but at least I can look forward to being halfway done with college and nearly 20 years old (!!!). With that, I'll wish you all a lovely rest of holiday break and a very happy New Year! xoxo Izzy

Wearing:// Sweater & Jacket: LF Stores (Old), Jeans: Aritzia, Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Shoes: Minelli, Earrings: Local Boutique 

      I'm truly unsure of where to begin with this post for one, I took these photos a couple of weeks ago and now there's snow on the ground where these photos were shot. Aside from the trials of transitioning back to the cold weather at home, I'm sure you all have been wondering what I've been up to. I have a whole update post in the works with photos from this past semester; I suppose the combination of work and school took over and I haven't had much time to rest. I returned home from California this past Tuesday and I haven't left the house once due to a pestering fever/flu I guess I went too hard studying for finals! I think that falling ill upon returning home is a metaphor for just how taxing this interminable semester has been. When I was home during Thanksgiving, which was a much needed escape from campus, I embraced the chilly weather and threw this outfit on. I've been especially into hoops as of late. With just about any outfit, I feel like hoops add an element of both elegance and sass and, most importantly, confidence. Behind the scenes of this mini-photo shoot included my mom and I hopping the fence across from our street because we didn't want to leave our car on a busy street (as busy as a street can get in suburbia). 

     This is entirely random to the outfit post in question but I just created a new playlist on Spotify if you guys want to check it out! Go follow me on there for some new tunes and to see what I'm listening to. Although my next post will be an update on this past semester, I suppose I can let you all in on my Christmas break plans! I'm headed to Miami for a few days next week before my fam travels to Cuba for a nice week long trip. Don't worry— I'll have my camera practically glued to my neck while I capture all of the vintage cars and the vibrant architecture. Until my update post! xx Izzy
