What Dreams are Made Of

I'm not sure if I've said, but I'm a apparel design and merchandising major. I've always been scared of pursuing fashion until someone said "think of the regrets if you don't at least try?"

So I've been studying fashion for four years and cannot wait to see what my future holds. This skirt was the first thing I've ever made. I fell in love with the fabric and wanted a simple silhouette. It turned out better than I even thought!

A chair to rest

Yesterday was filled with furniture shopping. Why? No reason. It's not like I need anything. But when you find a new part of your town you've never explored, why not go into every furniture shop and sit in every chair?

And the happiest dog ever.

J.Crew Shopping Event

Last week I had the honor of planning a shopping event at our local J.Crew Factory for the staff and readers of our HerCampus chapter. 

I plan an event once a month and this was hands down the best one yet. I love when stylish people come together and play dress up and shop. 

We ate, we shopped, and we tried EVERYTHING on. It was a night for the books.

A night of shopping and friends was the perfect release from the bad weather and midterms we have going on here. I suppose it's time to start planning the next!

A Classic Combination

I don't think I truly have a certain's just *me*. But when I'm lost and don't know what to wear, I have a few go to combinations. 
--cords and a button down--
--chino shorts and a v-neck tee--
--skinnies and flats--

Another perfect combination?
Stripes and a trench

Krystin pulls it off beautifully.
I'm in love with everything about her outfit!

Spring Break Come and Gone

Spring Break 2013 has officially come and gone. I unfortunately had to work most of the week up at school so in a last minute decision with my sister we were off to the beach for the last few days of the break. We ended up at Myrtle Beach, SC and had a pretty good time for a quick trip!

 Does anyone LOVE my new Kate Spade bag as much as I do?!
