My First Week of Adventures

The Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn

Laduree on Madison Ave

Lace and layers to wear in Times Square

Central Park

I cannot believe I have been in the city for a week now! I feel like it has been much longer than that since I have done and seen so much already! I had dinner at my favorite burger place, Shake Shack. Enjoyed Sunday brunch at Garage in Greenwich Village. Strolled down Madison Ave and saw so many wonderful designer shops while savoring my favorite sweet treat- macarons from Laduree. Walked through Central Park with an amazing view of the Plaza Hotel. So far my time in the city has been incredible. I am having so much fun and cannot wait for what other adventures are in store.

What's In My Bag?

I have been on the hunt for the perfect city bag for quite some time. After searching for a few weeks, I finally found 'The One!' I found my beautiful city bag at Target. I love the brown with the grey. Not only is it gorgeous, but it is so functional because if it size and looks very professional. Here's a peak at what I keep in my bag.

1. My planner and a pen 2. A book I am currently reading 3. Wallet 4. Makeup bag 
5. Mints 6. Sunglasses

What I keep in my makeup bag:
1. L' Occitane in Cherry Blossom hand lotion 2. Victoria's Secret body spray in Secret Charm 3. Hand sanitizer

My bag holds so much and still has room for a folder and some notebooks for when school starts! Thank goodness for Target! What do you keep in your everyday bag? Do you also use it as your school bag?

Dorm Details

As of yesterday, this new room is where I know call home. I moved into my dorm room at LIM and just finished organizing. I love my little space and am so happy to have everything in its place that I had to snap a few photos to share them with you! My desk is probably my favorite area. I brought some of my favorite books with me, some candles, a beautiful photo and frame from a friend sits next to my bamboo plant, and my jewelry display serves as a little art piece. I found my bed spread at Sears for a great deal and love the crisp white with simple grey, black and maroon details.  I have a few more things I'd like to hang on my wall and I will be sure to post it when I do! Have a wonderful day!

Sweaters & Shorts


{Old Navy sweater (last year)/ H&M shorts/ DIY Elephant necklace and chain ring/ Ulta polish}

I am in love with this sweater. I would wear it everyday with everything if that was acceptable. Its is so comfy, a great neutral color, and the perfect loose fit. The necklace I made in minutes right before I was walking out the door. I love the length, especially with this top. I definitely plan on wearing this sweater well into Fall and Winter. Image an orange-y red pant and booties! So cute! I am so excited for Fall! What garment do you wear all year long?

Outfit Inspiration: Taylor Swift

Never Ever

Not only do I love Taylor Swift's new single, but I adore the cover art for it. She is rocking a great pair of Ray-Bans and a white top with black pipping. You can't see much after that, so I left my imagination run wild. This is my interpretation of the outfit. I love the red flats and I want that bag! I definitely want to incorporate this look into my Fall wardrobe.

Never Ever Ever

I am so excited to hear that Taylor Swift is coming out with an new album! She announced yesterday live on Youtube that her newest album titled Red, will be released on October 22! I cannot wait! In the meantime, she has released her single from the album, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." It is a fun, upbeat song about her ex that, if you haven't caught on, she will never ever date again.

Have you heard T.Swifts latest? What do you think?

Neutral & Navy

Forever 21 dress & belt, Rainbow crossbody, Asos watch, Forever 21 necklace, Cole Haan flats

I adore this dress. I love the fitted top and the loose pleated skirt. It came with the navy bow belt that will be great for so many other outfits. This dress with be so fun to play with in the Fall months. I see leopard, oranges and reds for  playful pop of color.

Parks & Polka Dots

Forever 21 top, H&M cropped pants, Forever 21 over sized bag, Asos watch, Cole Haan flats

While in the city, my computer charger decided to suddenly stop working. I finally had a minute to run to the Apple store and have it replaced, so be ready for loads of posts about my trip! On this particular day I registered for  classes in the morning (my schedule is pretty great!), then went for a stroll down my favorite road, Bleecker Street. I had to take Danielle to Magnolia Bakery and the Marc Jacobs Store. We grabbed some cupcakes and did a bit of shopping. The perfect day in my book.
