Pastels and Textures :: Bib sweater & Suede boots

by wendy

My brother stayed with me this past weekend.  I’m very proud of him!  He’s officially a college graduate!   We celebrated by visiting the Getty museum and dining out.  While at the Getty, we snuck in a few film shots for our next pairing video.  My brother was so helpful!  He carried my duffle bag as we ran from location to location.

It got chilly around dusk so I layered up by adding a bib sweater and suede boots.  I love delicate pastel colors with strong textures like suede.

We enjoyed the nightlife and stayed till closing time.

 My brother and I talked about his future goals and plans.  I remembered the post-graduation anxiety.  I worked as a restaurant host and an assistant to two realtors for a few months before landing my first full-time professional job.  The stress and uncertainties are real, but I encouraged him to aim high.  I’d love to share stories of my professional journey with you one day.  Amidst countless failures, I gained invaluable insight into business management and life in general.  I believe that true failure is not trying at all and/or not giving yourself the permission to pursue your dreams.  I see a lot of potential in my brother.  He’s very talented.  In my eyes, nothing can stop him from achieving his goals.

Thank you so much for reading!  And em khoa… I love you.  You’re going to do so well in life!
