It includes all my favorite things in one outfit - varied textures, minimal pops of color, a hint of desi embroidery... and all on a black backdrop. The trousers have been a staple of mine this fall and winter as they go with practically everything I own and are far more forgiving on the winter body than other pleather pants. The top was a product of boxing day sales, and the shoes are my first big-girl purchase. Other than of course pots, hand soap, and a drying rack. I guess they're my first BIG big-girl purchase.

Not only was 2016 damaging to the world at large, but my blog also suffered as I transitioned from student to working young person. I've officially become the corporate slave/ side blogger that I dreamed to be.  I think I've pretty much gotten the hang of it, so more posts to come soon.
