DC Adventures

Posted by thekellytang On 10:07 AM
 
I had a mini DC adventure yesterday and it was fabulous! :) My friends and I wandered from Eastern Market and ended up at the Natural History Museum! lol. It was a lot of walking but it was so gorgeous out. So I didn't mind at all. And yes this is an actual personal style post, and I'm excited to share it with you because I actually have more than one photo of this outfit. I'm working on taking better photos, any tips and etc would be amazing! :) 
More photos behind the cut plus a Q&A! 

 
{Marc by Marc Jacobs Purse; Forever 21 jeans; Preppy shoes from Taiwan; Vest from Net, Taiwan; and Sweater from Korea.}

And as a super treat, I've been tagged by the lovely Stephanie of Thrift and Style (We met at the last CapFABB meeting, and it was so amazing to meet her! :)  with the Blog on Fire! award which means me answering questions and listing 11 random telling facts about myself lol, probably not all that interesting but here we go. ;)

Rules:
  1. You must post 11 random things about yourself.
  2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post.
  3. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
  4. Go to their blog and tell them that you have tagged them. 
11 Random Thangs: 
1. I've known I wanted to be a fashion designer since the age of 14. And I'm still pursuing that dream.
2. Not many people know I want to be a combination of P.Diddy + Martha Stewart + Me = because I have a deep respect for both of their talents and the personas/businesses they've masterfully created for themselves.
3. I love to sing but I have major stage fright. I once made my friends listen to me sing but not look at me. Yeah Its something I'm trying to overcome.
4. My favorite animal is a manatee, I don't know why, they just are.
5. I'm a scorpio, my birthday is Oct 30. And I feel like I relate to it pretty well.
6. I want to write and publish a book. On what? I have no idea. lol. 
7. I like to eat fried pickles.
8. I'm really grateful for this life that I have, and I plan to live it right.
9. I believe everyone should be the best version of themselves in everything they do. Just because you have one life.
10. I'm the youngest of three sisters. 
11. I really love this song right now: Karmin - Crash your Party



 Onto the questionss! :D

1. What are you most likely to be found doing on the weekends? Spending time with family. Having mini-adventures with friends. Reading. Every weekend is different depending on my mood, I'm half a homebody and half outgoing, when I want to be.  Taking a break from the computer. I'm trying to stay off the computer on Sundays, but its been really hard.  :)

2. If you could only spend time with one family member, who would it be? I don't think I could pick just one family member.

3. What is your favorite item of clothing? This is a hard question, but I guess my jeans since I wear them pretty much everyday. lol. They just go with everything.

4. What movie have you seen more times than you’d like to admit? haha I don't usually watch that many movies.. but I watch Hairspray, yes the one with Zac Efron, more often than probably acceptable lol. But I love that movie, it just gets me all happy, and I can sing a long!

5. Are you happy with what you decided to study in school? If not, what do you think you should have studied? Yep, I studied fashion design. I can admit sometimes its hard having to get a fashion degree from a none fashion school. But I wouldn't have picked another major since its something I love and its shaped me as the person I am now.

6. What was your favorite game to play as a kid? Playing pretend??! I had a wild imagination and would build things or turn tables into boats.

7. Which room do you spend the most time in at your house/apartment?   Probably my "office", because its where I have a table to write, blog, and etc.

8. Do you like to go thrifting? If so, what was your most amazing find ever? I've actually never gone thrifting before and its something on my massive to do list. 

9. What’s the one thing you will never leave your house without? My cellphone, I'm a mess without. I feel like I might miss something if I don't have it. I should work on that separation anxiety, lol.

10. Are you a tea or coffee person? (Or neither?) Tea all the way! :) And coffee ice cream sometimes. ;)

11. How many fingers am I holding up? I kid, I kid. Real question: What made you start your blog and what makes you stick with it? 11?! Hmm, I started my blog as a way to cure myself of boredom one summer in Taiwan. And as a place to document my trip and things. But then it turned into a lot more, sharing my life with other people and actually getting a positive response, and I've been hooked since then. Blogging has also become my outlet to share my favorite things, and inspirations. Its just a great way to get feedback from people around the world too. Its fascinating how many people who I have befriended from other countries.
