Since my favourite time of year, Autumn, is just around the corner, I decided to wear an old thrifted blouse before I lost the crisp warmth of September. I paired the top (which is one of my favourites) with a black pencil skirt from H&M since the blouse is quite short on its own. Guess where I got my shoes and hat from? Did you guess? Target! Since Target is really the only thing that's in my budget right now, I've been buying up all their black accessories. I found this awesome Indiana Jones-esque hat, and I couldn't say no to these closed toe wedges. This outfit brings out my inner hippie, don't you think?

On another note, I feel like I'm still getting accustomed to university life each and every day. Though I'm loving every minute of it, there are times when I yearn for the comfortable past. To be honest, I miss certain people like: my high school French teacher, old photography loving pals, H&M, and most importantly my best friends. Luckily when a door closes a window opens. Moving and living in a new city has made me more adventurous not just with fashion, but with friends and life. I recently started going to an incredible house church where I have met some of the best and coolest people. One of those incredible people is: Alyssa from Alyssa Marie Photography. Her photographs are almost as rad as she is. I'm so lucky to consider her a friend, she is so talented. Seriously, these photos are gnarly. Thank you so much Alyssa! 

Wake Me Up When September Ends

I'm back from my Destin vacation! The few days I stayed went by way too fast with people I love way too much. I did enjoy my away time from university, but truth be told I missed my roommate dearly. I went to Destin, Florida with my best friend Abbey for her sister Beth's wedding. Which happened to be right on the beach. When we arrived I was in awe upon seeing palm trees galore. NYC doesn't have them?! The first thing I did in FL, was get my first pedicure- a little overhyped to me, but I did enjoy it. I was set on a cheeto orange and chose Color Club's, "Psychadelic Scene." We spent the few days shopping at an incredible outlet mall, spending time with family and friends, exploring the beach, screaming at lizards, and setting up for a beautiful beach wedding. I captured most of the moments on my Nikon and only took a few pictures for myself, surprisingly! I wore a Pink Punch dress by Milly to the wedding which I found perfectly suitable for the tropical paradise I was in. I'm happy to be back at school because there aren't hundreds of lizards wandering around outside, but I do miss the Florida sun.

Florida Sun
