Friday Favorites

Hey y'all! Another weekend means another round-up of my weekly favorites! The cutest new arrivals just don't stop coming, and I've also started getting into podcasts, so be sure to check that section out, too! I'm not sure how exciting this weekend will be for me. I'm going to spend a lot of it catching up and getting ahead on class assignments because I'm taking a trip to Chicago next week! While I'm excited to go, it also means I'll be missing three days of classes, so I'll be putting in work this weekend to make sure everything goes smoothly. 

Fall Staples Under $30

Hey y'all! Happy Friday Jr.! I've been doing a little updating to my fall wardrobe recently, and this black camisole is quickly becoming a staple in my rotation. The beautiful lace detailing makes it the perfect top to layer underneath cardigans, and at less than $30, you can justify getting one in every color! The satin material is so smooth, and in my opinion, the little buttons add the perfect feminine touch. It's been fairly warm in Manhattan lately, so for today's look I chose to pair it with my thin, camel-color cardigan from Old Navy. This is another piece that's just under $30, and for a comfy cardigan that be layered tons of different ways, it's quite the steal! 

Living in the Moment

I love blogging. I truly do. It's hard to put into words what I like about it, except there's few other outlets that allow me to truly explore my creativity and feel purposeful doing so. There's no other feeling like creating the perfect photograph, putting my thoughts into relatable words and being a part of such a supportive online community. Although, if you ask what my least favorite part is, the answer is easy. 

Tips + Takeaways From My Summer Internship

Hey y'all! This summer I had the amazing opportunity to intern at a digital marketing agency in Kansas City. As a print journalism major, it wasn't necessarily what I always envisioned myself doing, but let me just say, it was such a valuable and eyeopening experience that I'm now so thankful I jumped at the chance at. I know a lot of you are probably at the point where you're either searching for a summer internship or, if you're like me, hunting for big-girl job, so I thought now would be the perfect time to share a few of the biggest things I took away from the experience and some tips that could be helpful for those of you taking this step soon! 

Friday Favorites

Yesterday on my Instagram story I had y'all vote on whether you wanted to see my Friday favorites or read about my summer internship today. Well, the votes were so close that I decided to share them both! Honestly, I'm pretty excited that the votes panned out this way because there were so many cute new arrivals yesterday that I couldn't imagine not sharing them with y'all, and I feel like this is always a fun way to kick off the weekend. So, enjoy browsing some cozy fall pieces and be sure to give my post about my summer internship a read, too! 

Patchwork Cardigan

It's officially the time of year when I can't go anywhere without someone saying, "I bet it's your favorite season right now!" Spoiler alert – it is, but what happened to the good old days when I didn't have to give my name every time I placed an order at Taco Bell?? Anyways, the leaves just started changing colors here in Manhattan, and I am loving it! If you ask me, fall makes everywhere look so beautiful! Also, the weather is finally starting to mellow out a bit, so now I can start wearing all my cozy fall sweaters like this adorable patchwork one from Red Dress Boutique! 

Friday Favorites

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! It's another rainy day here in Manhattan, surprise, surprise, but despite the weather, I'm excited for the weekend! From Homecoming festivities to relaxing at home, I'm looking forward to it all. I actually have all of my homework done prior to the weekend starting, too – a rarity recently – which makes it all that much better! Before I head off to my last class and put on my best cowboy gear for the parade tonight, I want to share with y'all my favorites from this week. This week's new arrivals are so good, and I already know I'll be adding a few of them to my cart later this weekend!

Madewell Silk Scarf

I'd like to start today off by giving a little shoutout to my sister. She's been rocking the silk scarf trend for months now, and while I've loved tying them in my hair, I never thought I could pull them off around my neck like her! But, I'm happy to report that I styled it like my sister this week, and I'm loving it! Paired with a white button down and denim skirt, this patterned bandana from Madewell was the cherry on top of this transitional fall look! Madewell's silk bandanas are by far my favorite because they're so soft, come in tons of patterns and are the perfect size for any purpose – scarf, headband, hair bow, tie it onto your bag, you name it! 

Meet Aspen

If you know anything about me, you know I'm crazy for cats. They've been my best pals for as long as I can remember, but for my first three years of college, I had to live without one and gosh, was it hard! Now that I'm living in an apartment, I'm so so so happy to say that I'll never have to go without again! Which leads my into the whole point of today's post...

Friday Favorites

Hi! Happy Friday! Is it just me or did this week feel like the slowest one ever?! I'm not sure if it's because I didn't have to go to half of my classes this week or what, but at least it's finally the weekend! It's looking like it's going to be a rainy next couple of days, too, so I'm very excited to just relax, curl up in some blankets and continue watching Gilmore Girls. But, before I go comatose in front of my TV, I want to share with y'all a few of my weekly favorites! 

Fall Reading List

Contrary to popular belief, I'm passionate about a lot more than just clothes, and in the spirit of sharing more here on my blog, I thought I'd take a moment to talk about my greatest love: books. I've enjoyed reading for as long as I can remember, and the amount of books I can breeze through over the course of a season is a tad overwhelming. Over the summer I caught up on a bunch of older titles that I had my eye on for a while, but now I'm ready to share with y'all a few newer books I'm excited to dive into this fall!
