Ingenue


Hello, dolls! Long time, no see (yet again, deepest apologies). You may have noticed quite a few changes in the blog's appearance that have been slowly taking shape over the last month (there is still quite a bit to accomplish). If you've been frequently visiting despite the lack of updates, you'll have noticed that my blog's theme has now successfully changed completely twice. That is due to my overall indecisiveness over aesthetics as well as self-exploration as well as my ever-wavering understanding of self and what I want, not only out of this blog, but out of life in general. It proves to be quite the challenge, but I am sure with some time dedicated to myself and much reflection and deep thought, I will come to some sort of conclusion eventually. I also need to accept the fact that I am quite young and have much to learn and experience before I can ever truly know what I want out of life. Some people never know. But perhaps, I am just rambling now.

Here are some key things that I have been up to over the last few months:
  • I've been cast in and have completed the production of Bus Stop, which proved to be quite the draining yet wonderful experience
  • I've successfully lost 5 pounds and gained it back in a matter of weeks 
  • I've gone through my closet and sorted out several garbage bags of clothing to get rid of
  • I became addicted to Jane the Virgin and old cycles of America's Next Top Model 
  • I've been painting a lot
  • I dyed my hair very dark brown for Bus Stop then back to copper again (quite the process)
  • I've been newly single for the longest time since I started university
  • I spent lots of time with family when they were in California
  • I pierced my daith
  • I got a rose gold iPhone 6S
  • I've started a new medication 
  • I auditioned for and was cast in the Spring musical, my last ever production in university
  • Finished my last fall semester of university
That seems to be the length of it. I guess overall, it comes together as a rather productive list, despite at the time feeling massively unproductive.



Here is an outfit that I wore this past fall that really sparked my sense of "feeling like myself" again after a long period of feeling like I was losing myself, style-wise. I don't know what it was exactly. Perhaps too much comparing myself to people on Instagram, but I found myself wearing lots of black and denim and looking "trendy" but not myself, which, I think, led to this whole feeling of losing myself. I wore this outfit and, after being complimented by dozens of strangers everywhere I went, I was reminded why I dress the way that I do. It gave me a confidence boost and I felt like I was being complimented for being myself rather than being the way everyone wanted to look.

Anyway, the year is finally coming to a close, and I can't wait to see what 2016 brings myself as well as all of you. I've been really itching to write more, and I can't wait to continue to share my life and personal style with you.

Stay sweet 
Sarah
