EXTRA CRISPY SPRING VEGGIE BIBIMBAP

There’s this blazer I’ve been stalking for months on the Internet.

Most people stalk their exes or that new hire at work who seems way too quiet, but I stalk blazers. One specific blazer to be exact.

I know, I know hindsight is 20/20, but being a kid was so nice.
