Hurricane Sandy Hits!

Hey!

It’s been a rough couple of days for many people on the East Coast. We haven’t seen a storm like this in decades and the damage the storm caused was devastating. Thankfully, my family and I weren’t affected much by the storm. Many of my friends are without power, cell service and hot water and we haven’t had school all week. Trees have fallen left and right and live wires lay in the streets.

I’ve had a couple of boring days. I haven’t had school since Friday and we aren’t supposed to go back until Monday. Most of the time I just stayed home and spent quality time with my family. It’s getting cold as well so I’m taking advantage of the down time to make some tea and read all my copies of Vogue and Nylon that I haven’t had the time to read yet.

Keeping all of those effected in my thoughts

…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

It’s Back-to-School time!

Got back-to-school jitters? Me too.

There are lots of good things about going back to school but there are also reasons to be nervous. Who will be in my classes? Am I going to have nice teachers? Will I have a good lab partner? Where will I sit at lunch? 

And most importantly……

WHAT DO I WEAR ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL?!

Everyone knows that you have to dress to impress but so many girls don’t know what outfit would be the perfect outfit to wear.

To make sure you showcase your glowing summer skin, you might want to wear a bright (neon?) color or a crazy pattern. If you’re a little bit edgier, you might want to wear a vintage band tee or a distressed tank; it totally feels summery.

Tank tops or short sleeve shirts are usually the way to go because it’s still hot when it’s time to go back to school. If it seems a little chilly outside, then don a cute cardigan. On the bottom, both shorts and skinny jeans are acceptable. White shorts are always a great option because they will show off your sun kissed legs!

I always like to wear my hair down on the first day of school, but that may just be me. My go-to hairstyle is beach-y waves with my bangs braided and pinned back.

You may want to finish off your look with some jewelry (earrings and a necklace?) and a super cute pair of flip flops. Go crazy with your accessories, it’s a fun way to bring your personality into an outfit!

 

Good luck on your first day of school! I hope these tips helped you out! xoxo

 

Flat-tastic!

As we all know school is about to start up again and, like me, I bet everyone else isn’t so enthusiastic about going back.

But, since I have to go back I thought I would feel better about going to school if I had a super cute backpack to put all my new school supplies in. So my mom, my sister, and I went backpack hunting today and we could not find a single socially acceptable backpack!! We scoured the shelves and decided to switch gears and look for some cute tote bags; they could be used as backpacks too! But still no luck.

On the bright side, in a few of the stores we got a little bit distracted and wandered into the shoe department. I haven’t been shoe shopping in the longest time! As I walked through the rows I fell in love with more and more pairs of shoes and I couldn’t not stop trying them on!

The flats stole the show, though. There were flats in bright colors and deep tones, with stones and with studs, printed and solid! They were all perfect, I was in heaven.

I want them all.

I LOVE SHOES XOXO
