i want to be your favorite hello and hardest goodbye.

Here's yesterday's outfit. I'm doing a design project for juniors based on mori girl fashion for my apparel presentation class, so I dressed up in mori yesterday.

Blouse from Taiwan, sweater from flea market, dress from H&M, skirt from flea market, lace scarf from H&M, large shawl scarf from thrift, socks from flea market, shoes from Nordstrom Rack.
I didn't wear a jacket, just a big scarf that I bought at a thrift store, but the weather wasn't too bad. I think it was in the high 30's or low 40's yesterday. Today though, the sky was blue and temperatures in the 50's. I could have worn shorts if I wanted to. It's like early spring.
Lately I've been doing well. As in, I've been hitting the gym every other day and taking classes that they offer, finishing homework days before they're due so that I don't have anything to worry about, and going to sleep early.
We're starting to have more design based classes, which is really nice.
I've been designing a bunch and wanting to make stuff, but every time I go to the garment district and total up material costs, I end up leaving with just pattern paper and zippers.

I'm starting skirt patterns in patternmaking on Thursday. After this semester I think I should be able to make dresses!

Love, Kaia
