Exploring the City | New York City, NY

May 26, 2015

Saturday was jam-packed with activities, so I'm glad to be back in the car writing this post. We started at about 8:30 AM with breakfast at the hotel cafe. I had an apple cinnamon pastry, yogurt with granola, and a chai tea latte!

Museum Hopping | New York City, NY

May 24, 2015

This year, my family is spending Memorial Day weekend in NYC! We drove up on Friday, and we're driving back down on Monday. We've planned out full schedules for Saturday & Sunday, and I'm super excited to share them with you all!

A Pop of Color

May 22, 2015

Now that spring is in full swing and summer is quickly approaching, I've gotten used to warm weather, dresses, and tank tops! Where I live though, the morning and afternoon temperatures don't like to coordinate. The other day it was about 70 degrees, but raining which left a bit of a chill in the air.

For days like these I like to wear a thin sweater and shorts, to keep my upper body warm yet not overheated later in the day when it gets warmer. One of my favorite outfits like this is a simple cream sweater with brightly colored shorts! This sweater has been featured on my Instagram many times, because I love it so much! These high waisted shorts from Express are also a favorite of mine, the color + the texture makes for a unique combination.

Little Black Dress

May 19, 2015

Good morning! This past weekend I did some shopping with my family and friends for summer clothes! I didn't get a whole bunch, but I am super excited about what I got.  

I tried out this new store at the mall called Garage! Their window display was super cute so I walked in and picked out a few items to try. This black dress is one that can be worn causally for school, or dressed up for a party or graduation. I wore it yesterday to school with my Jack Rogers and monogram necklace!

Color the Hill 2k15

May 14, 2015

About two weeks ago I participated in an amazing event called color the hill! To my friends and I, Color the Hill is a fun opportunity to support the Be Loud foundation, and hang out together. The race was a ton of fun, and I highly encourage you to find something similar to this where you live!

College graduation season is here, which means the end of the year for us high schoolers is near as well. This past Mother's Day weekend my family went to my cousin's graduation.

It was such a blast to see her graduate, and also a little bit emotional (my mom cried)! The dress I wore is one that I Instagrammed a few months ago, and also wore to my winter formal. Winter formal was a crazy night full of last-minute wardrobe malfunctions, and we were running late, so I wasn't able to take any nice pictures. I hope you all enjoy my dress and this post :)

AP Exams Outfit 1

May 7, 2015

To explain my recent absence, today I took my first AP exam in art history! I've been M.I.A. from social media because I've been studying like crazy. My next and last AP exam for the year is Wednesday, and then I'll be back to posting regularly! This is the outfit I wore for my exam today!
