Gift Guide: Christmas 2016

-


Well, here it is friends! I couldn't stop myself from making my 2016 holiday gift guide even though I 100% should be studying for finals. I've been making a gift guide each year since I started Practically Imperfect three years ago, so I just had to uphold the time honored tradition! After scouring the internet, these are my personal favorite picks this season. At the very top of my list is this jacket, this scarf, and this notebook set. You can shop all of these items using the links above or the fancy little feature below. 'Tis the season (and back to studying I go)! 

UCLA Room Tour

-











Well it only took me a few months to get this room tour posted! I wasn't totally planning on doing one since much of my room is filled with the same decor as last year, but I feel like it's all tied together so much better this year! I'm living in my sorority house, and let me tell you, it is a million times more homey and happy than living in the dorms. And these photos are such a testament to that. If you look through last year's room tour, you can see that I tried so hard to add my personality, but at the end of the day, it was still a teeny tiny dorm room. Now my room is always so bright and welcoming. When I moved in and set up all my stuff, it was easy to instantly feel at home! 

Update: I've gotten some questions on what I'm wearing in this post, so here it is! glasses  // sweater // jeans

Little White Dress

-








dress c/o // earrings (similar and another $7 pair!)

To be quite honest, I was not feeling this whole look while we were shooting it. We were in a rush and loosing light, so I threw together each of these pieces, changed in the car, and didn’t even stop to check my makeup. Looking back, I'm really happy with how they turned out! The sun was setting and the perfect twilight contrasted the white dress perfectly.

I’ve also learned a few things about my personal style lately: a high neck like this can be super feminine and flattering, I think I'm finally starting to get a hang of the whole “formal ponytail” thing, and some dressy looks dont have to be super elaborate to be beautiful. I think this whole look is very simple and that’s what makes it so great. The fact that I threw it together in the car seconds (literally) before we starting shooting is just an even bigger testament to that!
