Fall 10×10 Outfit 2

It’s day two of Fall 10×10 and if you don’t know what I’m doing, check out what’s going on here.  For the next 10 days (not including weekends) I’m only wearing 10 pieces of clothing.

This is Day Two, another cloudy and slightly rainy warm day. So not Fall. Despite this, I managed to pull out this outfit… yet again!  Continue reading “Fall 10×10 Outfit 2”

Fall 10×10: Outfit 1

In case you don’t know what the 10×10 challenge is, check out what’s going on here.  For the next 10 days (not including weekends) I’m only wearing 10 pieces of clothing.

Instead of posting a review at the end of the challenge like I did last season, I’m going to be posting everyday and talking about my outfit, first impressions, and styling notes. Super similar to what Caroline Joy does which is where I got the 10×10 idea from. So let’s get into it!

Fall 10×10 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge

Over the summer, I completed the Summer 10×10 challenge (read all about my experience here). After the challenge was over, I was so excited to just wear my gym clothes after my fitness class instead of feeling the pressure to put something from my wardrobe on.

Now that we’ve transitioned into colder weather I’m more exited that ever to try and complete the challenge again! I even snagged a clothing rack to place in my room so that I have no need to peek in my closet.  I originally got this 10×10 challenge idea from Caroline over at Un-fancy, so if you want to see how the pros do minimalism, check her out.

Today I’m going over:

  • How it works
  • My desired takeaway
  • My ten pieces

September Favorites

Hello everyone! I am going to warn you all that the September Favorites and the October Favorites post will be riddled with accessories to make it look like fall threw up all over the blog. (sorry not sorry!) I have been counting down the days to fall since the 90 degree days would not persist. So without further ado, here’s my favorites for the month of September.

13 Hours on Campus Packing Essentials

For months I’ve been bragging about my class schedule: afternoon classes only on Tuesday and Thursday. It was the perfect set up! Problem is that I also need to work. Turns out my schedule for work makes it so I have lots of gaps of time but they’re not long enough to go back to my apartment which ends up getting me a 13 hour day on campus once a week. That’s a freaking long day. 

But I’m determined to live every day with a happy heart, even if I have to put my happy heat on campus all day. I also know that this is not a one-woman pity party and plenty of people have incredibly long days on campus as well.

So to make life easier on all of us, I’m rounding up what a quintessential backpack looks like when it comes to surviving an incredibly long day. Continue reading “13 Hours on Campus Packing Essentials”

Wear Your Summer Dress in The Fall

Is anyone else suffering from major confusion on the weather? I feel like September is completely confusing! Mornings can be chilly, but three hours later I’m sweating in my long sleeved shirt. Or one day might be perfect to light up a fall candle and wear a chunky knit sweater, and the next I’ll be playing beach volleyball with friends!

This time of year I always struggle between savoring the last days of summer, while trying not to get into the fall spirit prematurely. Today I wanted to share with you my outfit of the week. I wore this maxi dress to a party and I was so excited, but then it became too chilly to wear. Instead of starting over I changed up the outfit so I could still wear my maxi dress, but now it was styled for fall! Go take a look!

How to Read for Fun in College

We’ve all been there before, where reading in the quiet mornings or rainy summer days are being replaced for running to class or taking a nap to recoup from the long day. With summer in the rear view window reading for fun has also been left behind, which is quite sad in my opinion because I’ve always loved a good book!

When it comes to college, there tends to be a heightened amount of required reading involved. It can be hours of reading and hundreds of pages to take notes on, so the last thing students want to do to relax is read some more.

For most students the library means a place to study, not a place to find the newest novel. And with the limited amount of time college students are given, Netflix and Chilling sounds like a much better option.

But, today I want to tell you about what I’ve been using to help me get through that mindset, and truly enjoy reading again. Continue reading “How to Read for Fun in College”

Monthly Favorites: August

August was a blur of countdowns until school starts, rushing to pack for school, and settling back into the swing of things. How can it be that another summer is officially over? No more racing to catch the ice cream truck on the beach until next summer I suppose.

But, as with every month, I look forward to the season ahead and I’ve collected some favorites along the way. Continue reading “Monthly Favorites: August”

Bath & Body Works Fall Haul

I’m finally moved back into my apartment for school! Ahh I’m so excited to be living on my own once again. Living on my own is so enjoyable for me because it means I get to be in change of everything: what groceries I want to buy, when I want to eat dinner, what soap I want in the bathroom — whatever!

To reward myself for unpacking all my school stuff I grabbed some of new scents from the Bath & Body Works Fall Arrivals. If you ever stop by my apartment now, please go use my bathroom so that you can see the fun stuff on display! Continue reading “Bath & Body Works Fall Haul”

How I use a Physical and Digital Planner Without Going Crazy

If you see me running to my next class or sitting at a cafe on campus you will likely see two things with me at all times: my water bottle and my planner. Fortunately, this post is not about why I love carrying my water with me everywhere.

So I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love writing in my planner and the process of getting a new planner is always a long one. But what’s funny is that I don’t just use one planner. I’m always using my physical planner and my google calendar. Today I’m giving you the low-down on my planner situation, what planner I use, what I use each platform for, and how I keep track of it all without missing a beat.
