Post College Thoughts

It’s crazy that it has almost been a year since I started this blog. It’s exciting for me to see how much work I’ve put into it and how much work I plan to continue to pour into it. A month ago I made a promise that this Summer was going to be about focusing on me and my career and this blog is a huge part of that! Along with my blog, I’m also focusing on being more independent and figuring out what I want for myself ...

Shorts & Selvedge

But I’m finally settled in and have started making some awesome plans for the Summer! Stay tuned for lots of Summer recipes, trends, and some awesome activities, primarily in the Portland area! But today I wanna talk about my ...

I Like Your Style: Savannah

Last weekend one of my best friends flew to Portland all the way from Chicago to visit me for the week! It was a crazy weekend full of food, coffee, and playing tourist around Portland together. I met Savannah over a year ago in Italy where we shared an apartment and a visual merchandising class together and I was instantly inspired by her sense of style! Savannah graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in ...

Graduation, Laryngitis, and What’s Next

Hey everyone! So I don’t have any May favs this month because this last month has been craaaazy! My favorite thing was that one day I had time for a nap so… yeah. I spent the last quarter working on the merchandising team for my school’s annual fashion show and that was mixed with finals and then on Saturday I graduated! I feel like I only just now caught my breath. So here is a quick update on my life: I graduated from ...

The Best Gelato in Florence

Well, the weather is finally getting warmer and all this sunshine is making me crave the rolling hills of Tuscany, Aperol Spritz on the balcony of my Florence apartment, and, most importantly… Gelato!Β One of the highlights of living in Italy last year was finishing dinner and asking my roommates to walk across the city to our favorite gelato spots. I made it my mission to try as many places as possible during my stay. Before I dive in ...

Red Rocks Canyon

Happy Monday! HowΒ was everyone’s weekend? Good? Great? Awesome. I’m taking a break from my heavy load of homework because I wanted to share some pictures from my recent trip to Vegas! Technically I was staying outside of Las Vegas, in a city called Henderson, with my boyfriend and his family. On Saturday his parents had the idea to drive out to Red Rocks. I had always wanted to go so I was 100% on board with this plan! Here are ...

Life Update and April Favs

Hey guys! Long time, no see. Sorry I suck and I’ve been barely posting. I’m really struggling to find some inspiration and, honestly, I’m just counting down the days till graduation. Once June hits I’ll be moving back down to Portland and I’ll have more time and more things to do and post about. Right now I’m almost halfway through an 18 credit quarter as well as working as the Merchandising lead for my ...

I Like Your Style: Sydney II

Sydney’s face and her wardrobe were just too perfect for me to only do one outfit post about how inspired I am by her. Continuing with the theme from our first shoot, this outfit also features a one piece. The black and white stripes paired with the white skirt is so simple and easy for a dressed up look and the white bow on the back adds an awesome detail! This outfit is perfect for spring, especially on cooler nights that call for ...

Study Break

How’s everyone’s Tuesday going? Mine is good but the last couple of weeks have been insane… The last 3 weeks or so have basically been a blur of homework, projects, studying, and too much coffee and not enough sleep. I love school and I love being busy but with final projects being due and a Spring Break to plan, I am exhausted! But I’m officially done with finals and it is such a relief! Do you guys have any fun ...

I Like Your Style: Sydney

When it comes to fashion, I get inspired by so many different things! I love watching fashion documentaries about famous icons such Iris Apfel and designers like Christian Dior. I also get a lot of inspiration from fashion bloggers and people I have never met but follow on Instagram. But I think that where most of my inspiration comes from is my friends. They’re the ones that constantly surround me with such a diverse range of styles ...
