Liebster Award Nomination

Happy Friday! I'm so excited to have been nominated by the lovely Amanda of Sans Scrubs to participate in the Leibster Awards! A Leibster Award is a fun way to learn more about other bloggers by asking them a whole bunch of "facts-about-you" type questions. Amanda is one of the sweetest bloggers I've met, not to mention her style is totally adorable, and I'm so honored to have been nominated by her :).

The Rules:
1) Acknowledge the blog who nominated you
2) Answer the 11 questions given to you from the blogger
3) Give 11 random facts about yourself
4) Nominate 11 blogs you think are deserving of the award (less than 200 followers)
5) Let the bloggers know that you have nominated them
6) Give 11 questions for them to answer
7) Display the award photo in your post 

Amanda's Questions:
1. What inspired you to start writing/blogging? 
I am a fairly new blogger actually :), I decided to start blogging a few months ago when I realized I wanted to share my outfits with more than the people I saw in person every day. By blogging, I can connect with a whole community of fashion bloggers from all corners of the world who have my similar tastes in fashion. Needless to say I'm lucky to have "met" so many lovely ladies (like Amanda!) who inspire and influence my own style!

Stripes & Flowers for Fall

Oh man! It's been over a month since I last posted. Things have been super busy lately! I have a test every two weeks for my anatomy class and it seems like as soon as one thing is over, something else comes up. Good news is that I'm doing well so far and after my final on December 4, I'm done with school until February which is when spring semester starts :). I have a few updates to share! I transitioned to part-time at my research job because it was getting really difficult having a full-time job while also taking classes and volunteering at a clinic. Going part-time wasn't an easy decision but I like to think of it as an investment for the future since I need to take a few more classes for grad school. With my pay now cut in half, I'll have to start being more careful with my spending habits. I'm not too sure how that will go because there is always something new popping up on my wish-list! 

Edwin has been coming back to LA on more weekends than usual lately which has been nice. For us, weekends are super busy since we plan for every activity to make the most of our time together. Over the past few weekends we have gone shopping a few times, went on a couple double dates, spent time with family, oh and we saw Interstellar the other night! It was an amazing movie and I definitely recommend you see it, especially if you love sci-fi and story lines that spark lots of thought and discussion. At 3 hours it's a little long but you'll be on the edge of your seat the whole time :). This past Saturday was also our church youth group's annual Thanksgiving dinner night. It was a potluck-type event and we had a lot of good food. We had a guest speaker talk about the importance of serving each other the way Jesus served us. We also played some games and had the most delicious (early) Thanksgiving dinner.

Now for the fun part, outfit photos! I'm sharing a few photos from one of the weekends that I spent with Edwin. I think the beige and burgundy colors of this dress are perfect for fall. I wore it with matching burgundy tights and tan heels. My favorite part is the flower applique at the waistline! This is also the same outfit I wore at our youth group's Thanksgiving event. I hope you enjoy the pictures, and I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving this week!

P.S. I also got new eyeglasses from Tiffany & Co! I was looking for eyeglasses with a subtle cat-eye frame and cute details, and these were perfect. You can see me wearing them in a few of the pictures!
