NYC/BOSTON LOOKBOOK. 

It’s been approximately 2 weeks since I got back from my trip & have I posted my promised lookbook? Nope! But here I am NOW so all is well. Alright I’m not gonna start rambling because there isn’t much to say other than the mirror I had in New York had like weird lines and stuff all through it, but it was also freaking huge so like….I’ll live somehow. ALRIGHT, HERE WE GO

Day 1: NYC

This is the outfit I wore on the plane and during our 1st day in New York! To go through everything, it was:

  •  A pair of matte chelsea style rain boots from Target
  • Red crew socks from TJmaxx
  • Ripped black jeans from Charlotte Russe 
  • Red & grey plaid tights from DSW
  • A white tshirt with red embroidery from Forever 21
  • A basic black cardigan 
  • A black beanie with a lil poof from JCPenny

I ended up with a black rain jacket on too because it was super super cold and rainy, but I looked cute touring Parsons The New School of Design (which was amazing!!!) & New York Film Academy, eating tons of food, getting some goood chinese food, and exploring the city. The tights underneath were a nice detail and they also kept me super super warm the whole day. 

Day 2: NYC

This was the outfit I wore on out “free day” of sorta since we had no college visits and it was a lot warmer / wasn’t raining so I could wear something a little less smothering:

  • Navy Converse
  • The same black ripped jeans from Charlotte Russe
  • A royal blue tank top turtle neck from Forever 21 
  • A huge cream cardigan originally from Chapps but bought at the thrift store 

I also threw on my big navy coat for some extra protection from the wind because it was intense man somehow even when we were inside or in subway stations? Worth it though. We went the the Highline and Chelsea Market, ate lunch & went to Strand Bookstore, and got to some wonderful dinner reservations.

Day 3: NYC

The last photo was my base outfit, but it was literally like 30 degrees out with a 10 degree wind chill & it was also pouring down rain, so I threw on every article of clothing I could find and ended up with: 

  • Dark wash, highwasited jeans from H&M (actually bought on Day 2!)
  • A b&w striped ribbed turtle neck from Forever 21 
  • My black rainboots from Target
  • The long, cream cardigan from the thrift store 
  • My black rain coat
  • A huge, pink-ish scarf from who knows where 
  • My black JCP beanie 

It was also just my luck that my jeans turned my legs, from my hips to my ankles, totally blue because they were unwashed and it was raining. Aside from that, this outfit was warm enough to get me through a Pratt tour & lunch in Brooklyn, a visit to Central Park and the Alice in Wonderland statue, dinner, and Times Square at night. 

Day 4: Boston

This had to be my favorite outfit, it was so cozy and so warm with my sweater & it felt amazing to be out of jeans finally and into some looser pants: 

  • Navy Converse
  • White crew socks from TJmaxx
  • Plaid pants from the thrift store 
  • Navy sweater from H&M
  • Cream cardigan 
  • Navy Bandana 
  • Tan-ish type of beanie from Target (I think??) 

This is what I wore on the bus from New York to Boston, the struggle of getting from the bus stop / airport to our apartment in the East, and getting back to tour Emerson (which was FABULOUS!!!), eat a terrible lunch of noodles and soggy cabbage, and go to Dinner at an amazing Italian place. 

Day 5: Last Day

This was the base of my outfit (of course, ended up with a coat & gloves on), but these shoes were the most comfortable ones of the trip & it was good because we did walk a lot (as we had been doing). 

  • White hightops from Target
  • Lighwash jeans from H&M 
  • Black and white striped shirt from H&M

Day 5 consisted of a visit to the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) in Seaport, lunch at the best restaurant for the 3rd time!!!! & walking around Boston Commons before heading to the airport for 4 hours while our flight got delayed. Eventually, we made it home at about 2am, and it was all worth it. 

SO THAT’S ALL FOLKS! I hope that lived up to your expectations minus the poor quality, the lack of creativity due to the weather, and the long wait. I’ll be editing more photos (and a video) from the trip very soon & also be posting a food journey through the 2 cities to give some recommendations. Thanks for reading that super long lookbook from a truly wonderful trip, peace out guys 🙂

panic! at the disco: how brendon urie & co. multihandedly (?) saved my life

WEDNESDAY APRIL 12: THE DAY THAT FOREVER CHANGED MY LIFE AND WAS/IS THE BEST NIGHT OF 2017. The Panic! at the Disco Death of a Bachelor tour concert was SOSOSOSOSOOOO GOOD GUYS. But like, it’s chill no big deal or anything I just made this video collage that features my screaming so loud my voice hurt but it’s whatever! Saint Motel and Misterwives opened up, both were amazing! I didn’t know either were opening and I had only listened to like a song of Saint Motel, but they ended up being so good and then MISTERWIVES!!!! I love them so much and when the lead singer came bopping out in her pom pom shorts and fur jacket I started freaking ouuuttt and they did such a good job. They also performed 2 songs off of their next unreleased album and they were so hype so I’m so excited to listen to it when it’s released. Okay onto Panic!, so it was Brendon’s birthday so there’s a clip of everyone surprising him and singing happy birthday and he got so happy :’) He also played the ACOUSTIC VERSION OF THIS IS GOSPEL?!??$ It was breathtaking. Oh, and so these girls handed out all these bright colored hearts to different sections of the crowd for us to hold in front of our flashlights during Girls/Girls/Boys (which was ammaazzzinnnggg) & holy cow! He just like stopped and freaked out because he loved it so much and went on this whole long speech about the revolution and how love trumps hate and how we were making a real impact in the world and on him and I legit almost teared up. ​There were so many times where he would be goofy and like throw his head back in laughter or start goofing around and it was SO CUTE wow they just did such an amazing job and it was wholeheartedly the best concert I’ve ever been to (tøp, you’re still up there boys).  I attached the video I made and it’s about 4 and a half minutes long and worth every second because I shoved so many songs and great moments in & it still doesn’t do this beautiful man and his beautiful band and his personality and looks justice but! that’s okay 🙂 I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS I DID!!!!! – the end of the first clip is so funny with his lil “yeaaah” – OK I’M DONE

Yes, More Flowers

Over the month of December, I planted some tulip bulbs with high hopes that they’d bloom this Spring – AND THEY DID!! So naturally, I had to take a ton of pictures of them because they are my pride and joy, and will remain so until they sadly die. OK so here are a bunch of photos of some pretty tulips and a few random flowers that I saw in my yard & while in Athens for prom – ENJOY!
