A Colorful Summer

During the summer people tend to go for colorful peices of clothing, accessories, shoes and makeup. Since Autumn (my favorite season) is approaching, I think it's a great idea to live the last month of summer to the fullest, and let those colorful choices prevail.

Wear colorful makeup, but not too much!

DQ birthday candles. I'm 18 in a month!

Enjoying the fresh summer fruits while they're still in season. Preferable on some crepes?

Destination: Europe

At this very moment, I'm walking on Polish ground with my family. I'm not going to have internet very often in Poland, although I have written a few posts for the blog that will automatically post. I still have to pack all of my shoes and our taxi arrives in an hour. Where are my priorities? I've never been very organized.

Cardigans. Dresses.

Tops. Tank tops.

Breakfast of champs. Or... the "use everything we have in the fridge up" breakfast. 

Eggs, black olives, seasonings, hot sauce, rye bread + ginger green tea.

Q: What's your favorite vacation spot?

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Back to School

Ah, the time is near for us to buy our new school supplies, sharpen out pencils, and stock up on the coffee. This September I will begin University as a freshman. I'm more excited than nervous, which must be a good thing. I'll be staying at home, but spending a lot of time downtown near campus. That means lots of shopping and cool photography locations. I'm a city girl at heart. 

I created this collage on Polyvore with items that are typical to students. Calculators, hoodies, coffee, cute 'night owl' mugs, slippers and an Esc ring (how relevant). Although I will not be attending Harvard nor Yale, I still can't wait for this new chapter in my life to begin.

Hey Mickey!

Hey! Do you like my new blog header? I spent some time last night creating a few, and this once turned out to be the most simple, yet my favorite. I'm working on a few more, and hopefully I can have a new one for the time fall rolls around (with some lovely fall colors perhaps?). I'm going to change up the layout over time until I find my favorite fit. I've also realized a few things that make a blog good. One of them is a good posting schedule. Mine needs a bit of tweaking because sometimes I post once a month and at other times I'll post three times a week. I have decided that every Friday morning I'll have a post up :) Hopefully this can improve my blog, because I've really been interested in the blogging world and blogging improvement over the past few months. Stay tuned for an improved blog! 

Outfit of the day posts are my favorite, and I want to start posting them more often. My sister and I ordered a few tops from Urban Outfitters online and this Mickey Mouse top was one of my favorites. I paired it with simple white shorts and a big gray satchel from my mom's friend. I love adding a little pop of color when my outfit is simple.

Top: Urban Outfitters
Shorts: American Eagle
Flats: Can't remember
Satchel: Mom's friend

Have a lovely weekend.
