Best of the Week

From the very beginning, I was a huge Emma Stone fan. I loved her in The House Bunny, Easy A, and in her newest hit, The Help. She is an incredibly talented actress and she is beyond gorgeous.

The outfit Emma wore to the annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards this past Tuesday was by far my favorite look of the week. Everyone from models to actresses was invited to this event but Emma stood apart from them in a stunning, glitzy Burberry ensemble. The structured navy corset and the sequin emerald pencil skirt worked perfectly together and made her look radient. Not to mention her hair looks incredible styled like that!

Street Style

The train my sister and I were taking to get to our class at the Fashion Institute of Technology was running late so we had some extra time to take subway selfies, yay!

It’s getting pretty cold out in New York so I only had so much time left to wear my skirts. I wore mine with sheer black tights, wool crew socks, and my new combat boots! On top I wore my coziest grey sweater. I added a black knit ear warmer/headband and my usual eggplant handbag.

Ear warmer/headband- Aldo

Sweater- H&M

Skirt- American Eagle Outfitters

Tights- DSW

Crew Socks- American Eagle

Combat Boots- Steve Madden

Handbag- H&M

…and school begins

The late nights, the pool days, and the suns rays are all coming to an end as school comes back in session all over the country. And, although I love nothing more than sitting on the beach with the newest gossip mag, I was kind of looking forward to going back to school because I’d get reunited with all of my friends again.

I wasn’t feeling too peppy when I woke up at 6 am on my first day, but as the day went by I was more than happy with all of the people in my classes and all of the teachers that I have. The work load, like always, seems like so much that it could ultimately be the death of me.

On the first day, it was perfectly warm and breezy so I wore a vibrant coral tank with gold hardware, black denim shorts, metallic gladiator sandals, and a chunky gold statement necklace! It was the best combo of summer style and fall flair (and I got tons of compliments! woohoo).

My schedule is a little crazy and it’s loaded with advanced classes; I told a friend what classes I was taking and she replied, “Do you want to die?” That’s how I figured out that this year will be, well, hell.

I’m already getting hours and hours of homework and I’ve only been in school for four day! It’s INSANITY, I swear teachers have no mercy. So… in case you were wondering why I haven’t been posting so much anymore it is solely because I do homework from the minute I get home from the minute I go to sleep. Fun right?

I hope you guys have better luck with school than I do! I’ll post again this week hopefully xoxo
