BUTTERFLY IN THE SKY. A spring-minded school outfit for warmer February days (2/22). Inadvertently almost all H&M ... my my they've been making bank off of me. The monarch top is so boho and carefree, matched with a flowing off-grey (tinge of purple) chiffon midi skirt with pleats, oh pleats. If only every day of the year were like this :)

I was planning on crossing off things on my mall to-do list on Friday, but the weather took a turn for the worse. Cold, windy, dreary. Despite the Debbie Downer weather, I still went berserk at the mall over florals and leather, met up with more friends, and had a blast of a 22nd birthday with my best college buds. They surprised me with Moscato, cheesecake, champagne, and watching Paranormal Activity 3 together, and best of all, themselves! The weather gods stopped being poo and today was sunny gorgeous, high of 75 but with super strong whisk-me-to-Oz winds.

During a cellular biology seminar on Friday, I was inspired by a Ben Franklin quote one of the presenters said: "Energy and persistence conquer all." My persistence fuels my strength but the energy is a bit lacking. Recently, there are a lot of honestly fun and happy moments and there's also periods of grief and really missing my Mom. Talking with people helps, and especially being able to connect with others going through similar hardship. Thanks to every one of you who have offered hugs and words of support ♥. A giant bowl of basil pesto chicken soup also helps warm up the spirit. Mmmm foodie.

I love the butterfly print. It's big but not overwhelming. Complements you very well! And the biker jacket is a great touch to keep the look from being too feminine. Love how you aren't afraid to take a risk!

Hey, not sure how i came across your blog but i did a few days ago, and after checking out your posts i decided to follow you.
you have a unique voice, i like the fact that you combine fashion with personal information and a little insight to your everyday life always with a touch of humor.
i wasn't sure where to follow from so i followed via bloglovin and gfc you know in case you decide to take off gfc, many blogs do that nowdays.
back to your post, i love how realistic this butterfly top looks, i almost imagine a butterfly flying across it.
and the skirt weirdly matches it perfectly.
