Black and gold

At this point, what I’m longing for most is the spring season. The dull and indecisive weather has left me resorting back to my black, white, and greys. Lately, I’ve noticed that I have been pairing this DVF belt with almost everything – it’s subtle, yet strikingly beautiful with its gold clasp. It can be worn over cardigans, blazers, and loose, flowy dresses to accentuate your waist. I have been waiting for it to go on sale, and when it finally did, I snatched it in a heartbeat.

The term busy would be an understatement for what has been going on in my final semester. As excited I am for everything that I have working towards, it has been nothing short of tiring and painful. It’s my final semester of my undergrad (yes, less than two months before I finally graduate with a Honours of Bachelor of Commerce degree!) and I am utterly drained, both mentally and physically. However, it only makes sense for me to put in my best effort to remind me that I do deserve to walk away with my degree. It’s shocking to see how fast time has flown by – I could remember it like yesterday when I was in my first year of university. It honestly feels rewarding to see how far I have come. I hope that for those who are also graduating this coming spring will feel the same!

  2. Glad to see you back Aney; I can only imagine how stressed out you must be right now! Graduating with an honours degree is something to be so proud of, though, and I hope you're able to enjoy the rest of your time in school!

    You're so right about that belt- it's so gorgeous and it's like adding a piece of statement jewelry to your look! Hope spring hits Canada soon!

  15. It would be an understatement to say that that DVF belt is not a statement piece! Anyway, all the best with your final 2 months of university. I wish I could turn back the time and do school all over again :')
