Denim Days

I actually miss getting up early for school and putting on a decent outfit. These days my outfits consist of a hat, comfy workout pants, and a tee shirt. I know, real fancy. College is so different than high school. There is no time to get ready, it’s wake up and go. No matter the what time may be, most people look like they have just rolled out of bed. Kudos to anyone who actually puts on a face of makeup or a cute outfit, for me this is just not practical anymore. Any day I get to put on a nicer outfit is an exciting one.

This outfit is something I would wear on a day out with friends in New Haven, Connecticut. It’s a casual look where you can still feel put together. It’s perfect for a bite to eat with girlfriends and some retail therapy. Just what I need, some retail therapy! Too bad my wallet says no to that. Details to this outfit will be below!!

Where is Fall in Connecticut?!

Ugh!! I’m eagerly awaiting fall and hoping it’s just around the corner. I can no longer deal with the sticky humidity in a dorm room. Since last writing, I was soon off to Quinnipiac University, and now I’m here! Saying I love it is an understatement. I am incredibly lucky to of met such genuine people in such a short amount of time. Waking up each morning and passing mountains is something you can’t get anywhere else, it will never get old in my eyes. I can’t wait to look up at the painted red, orange and yellow smiling down at me from the sleeping giant. The high 80’s need to leave, I want fall desperately!!

Before leaving New Jersey I took these pictures in one of my favorite simple outfits. I hate the rule “no white jeans after Labor Day.” White jeans are so practical and go with pretty much anything, I miss them already. *sheds tear* Below are the details of this outfit!!

Top: Pacsun (no longer available)

Jeans: Hollister

Can you tell I’m from New Jersey..?

 

Pop of Red

It’s been quite some time, but I am back! The chaos of getting ready for my freshman year of college has finally settled and now I am just shopping for some dorm necessities. I took some time out to travel to Asbury Park, New Jersey (about a half hour south of me) to take some pictures and enjoy good food. I’ve talked about Porta before on here but in case you missed it, it’s a trendy, Italian hotspot for shore loving New Jerseyans. Click here for my last post at Porta.

This time around I took some pictures with one of my best friends, headed to Porta for lunch and then indulged in delicious vegan ice cream at a shop called Cookman Creamery.

My outfit I wanted to keep really, really simple. I wanted the outfit to revolve around the bright red mules. You can get them here for only $21. I am obsessed with them because they’re not only super affordable but they make any simple outfit pop. I stuck with classic, silver accessories to match the metal around the pockets of my white skirt. My top is a simple, plunging, grey body suit and again, super affordable. Outfit details are below!

 

Grey Bodysuit: Boohoo (now $6)

White Skirt: Lucky Clover 

Necklaces: Gifted

Rings: Alex & Ani

Shoes: 2020Ave

It’s Almost That Time…

It’s almost the time where I place my graduation cap on and walk to get my diploma! Officially ending high school is starting to freak me out, it’s crazy to think in less than three short months I’ll be moving to my new home, Connecticut. Due to my crazy busy end of the year schedule, I haven’t been able to take any pictures for a fashion post so I thought I’d collect pictures from the last couple weeks to put together a current lifestyle post!

The first pictures are from a college night my friend hosted. Basically, we celebrated all choosing our college! It was an exciting and super happy night for everyone. The second group of pictures is from my senior prom. My dress was a berry, wine colored Jovani dress which you can find here. It was a little different than my usual style and color choices but I am so happy I took a chance on it. It feels nice not having to stress about hair, nails, makeup or dress anymore! Onto new stress, FINALS!! Ugh, I’m ready to graduate..

My Favorite Healthy Cookie

I have been working really hard physically to get myself where I want to be. I have completely limited my snacking and have been making strides to a more healthy lifestyle. Of course, every now and then I allow myself to splurge (to a certain degree) but day to day when I’m craving something savory these almond butter cookies are my go to. Almond butter is a healthy fat, made for you to stay fuller longer. That’s the main ingredient out of this four ingredient recipe. Yes, only four ingredients!! The other ingredients are rolled oats which are packed with a ton of fiber, honey which is good for your immune system and promotes weight loss and then an egg which is a good source of antioxidants.

Combined these ingredients create a savory, soft and chewy cookie, not to mention it’s super high in protein. You can always add things to you your cookies too! I typically will add a little cinnamon and chia seeds for extra health benefits. The one downside to these cookies is that they’re so addicting. I baked around 12 the other night and within two days…gone. Hope you all try them out, you won’t regret it. Click here for recipe!
