I know that pretty much all of my posts this month have been about my last experiences in high school rather than my usual fashion or beauty write up, but I want to be realistic and share what I've been going through for the past few weeks. School has been consistently stressful and frustrating for a while and although I'm sad to leave my friends behind as I move forward in life, I'm really excited to start on my new journey. After nine years at my school eating the same food, seeing the same people, doing the same work, etc, it's nice to have a fresh start.
I checked out of school today with one of my closest friends. It's been a long and tiring process that forced me to run around campus looking for money, my i.d., and a jacket to cover up my non-dress-code outfit, I'm finally done. Graduating will be one of my most precious accomplishments and I can't wait for Sunday!

This could possibly be my favorite outfit I've ever worn. I found both the blouse and skirt at Nordstrom for amazing prices. The blouse has a subtle striped pattern and a flowy style while the sleeves are oversized and billow in the wind. Tucked into the tight miniskirt, the top doesn't look too big or dramatic for an everyday look. The skirt is beautiful and despite its length, it's quite wearable. The combination of blue and white in this outfit makes it perfect for the quickly approaching summer time!

A few weeks ago my classmates and I had our "senior ditch day" at Kailua Beach. Every year, the school allows the senior class to spend a day at the beach where they can swim, surf, eat, and hang out with their classmates before graduation approaches. Although I'm not a huge fan of the beach, I had fun spending time with my friends and having a picnic during school hours. This post is really late but I wanted to share some of my favorite memories with all of you!

Last month I read my way through The Best American Poetry and it was fantastic. I've been really interested in poetry this year because of my English class and this book is filled with beautiful words and stories. One of my favorite poems in the book is called "You Art A Scholar, Horatio, Speak To It" by Olena Kalytiak Davis. It features a dialogue between (seemingly) two people and the almost Shakespearean language feels light. I enjoy reading books that are told by different narrators and have multiple story lines in it, which is why an anthology of poems is perfect for me.
This month, I'll be reading Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer. There are four overlapping storylines in the book and although it's an assignment for English, I've been thoroughly enjoying it!
