This week has certainly been an overwhelming one and it’s only Tuesday. Just to give you a little bit of context to what my life is currently like, i’m drowning in homework as its the last week of my winter class, I have to pack and move in to college this weekend as I just found out I am living with my friends for my final semester (I have nothing started) and of course I have some personal stuff going on top of it all. I just woke up from a nap because the amount of homework I had today completely wore me out. I am almost thankful I don’t have a job right now because there is no way I would be able to get anything done for this class if I had any other commitments. Don’t you hate professors like that? I must say it’s really taking away from the value of actually learning the material.
On a more exciting note, I have finally been taking some steps to improve my blog! I am so excited to share with you some new things I have going on in the upcoming weeks. I love watching it all fall into place. It is so overwhelming how much things have grown and changed within just the past few weeks, but its in the best way possible. What a beautiful start to 2017 thus far, I am extremely grateful for all of these opportunities.
One of the things that I strive for while shopping is to choose pieces very carefully as I love a more timeless, put-together look. It’s more practical, in my opinion, because trends are constantly changing. As soon as this coat came out a few months ago I new it was perfect. I had been into J.Crew multiple times to try it on to decide if this was something I wanted to invest in and one thing about J.Crew that is a ‘must know’ is that they have great sales. If you love something, but don’t believe in spending an arm and a leg for it, keep your eye on it because it will go on sale. It’s one of the best shopping secrets I learned while working for J.Crew a few years ago.
Ever since I got this coat I have been living in it. It’s beautiful and so me. The perfect, timeless, plaid piece that will never go out of trend. People always tell me that I look like Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl *insert headband here* and I feel like this is something Blair would own in her closet. The coat dresses up any outfit. It’s so chic! I wore it with Hunter rain boots and it made the rain boots look so elegant. You can even throw the coat on with something as simple as Uggs, black leggings, and a tee and you’d still look good.
I am interested in broadening my content in the upcoming weeks so If there is something you’d like to see on the blog let me know!!
