BABY WE GOT IT


Hello, friends! Craig has been here with me for the past couple days and I couldn't be more happy about it. We snagged some photos together with ILLGANDER and here are some of my favorites! 




This weekend was full of meeting up with Craig's friends and family here on the west coast. Lots of yummy meals out. We also went on a short hike here in Corvallis up Bald Hill. Spent a bit on campus to get work done because neither of us have had a vacation together where we didn't have work to get done. 

Now it's Monday and he heads back to Massachusetts, I return to class and it is unknown when we will see each other again! Oh, the joy of long distance relationships. 


This skirt I actually made the night before out of necessity. It has suddenly turned to beautiful weather and I had just gotten rid of tons in my closet. So, with some extra fabric I made a simple knit pencil skirt. I'm really liking the all white look, but don't see it as something I can pull off, so I went with more of an off white styled look with a heathered beige t-shirt and flesh toned skirt and flats. I was super comfortable wearing it!

Props to Craig picking his own outfit out. Dudes are easy. 


My outfit: hand made skirt (similar), Nude flats, Forever 21 t-shirt, H&M belt, thrifted Liz Claiborne bag, vintage lamp necklace

LIFESTYLE CHANGES


I needed to post some recent inspiration. This whole spring cleaning thing I've taken to the next level and have so much stuff I'm giving away. I really think I'm heading toward a more minimal lifestyle. While going through my things I realize how much stuff I have that I don't need at all. 

Crossing my fingers that I will be moving in two months, so this is the natural next step. It's been a very refreshing process!  It's inspired me for new home decor ideas that I can't wait to apply to a new and different place in the future! 

Let me know if anyone is interested in my cleaning, organizing process of getting rid of things. I can write more about my mentality behind it and how it's become easy for me to let things go. 

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

GOOD VIBES: BUENA ONDA



Big thanks to ILLGANDER for being a trooper during weeks I'm less than cooperative. This day was just one of those days. We all have them. Despite my lack of inspiration last week, we managed to get a couple good shots that I hope you all like! 





A friend of mine, Elisa just got an internship with a small company called The Buena Onda, congrats! She asked me to feature one of their beautiful mochilas in one of my blog posts and I was happy to do it! They are so cool! More about the bags on their website. 

I used this bag all day and it easily fit my 13 inch macbook, chargers, planner and snacks for the day. I think what I like most about it is that even though it's a small/medium bag, I was able to pack everything I needed. And the thick cross shoulder strap is thick enough that it's very comfortable to wear throughout the day. 



Today was a really simple day for me. I had a lot of work and interviews to conduct, but nothing out of the ordinary going on. I didn't want to force an outfit for this post, I just wasn't feeling it. So you're getting my uniform! Exciting! All black every day. Nothing wrong with that though, I was perfectly comfortable. I had this great bag at my side and that was special enough for me. 


Hue Leggings | H&M button down | Georgio Brutini Boots | Necklaces were all gifts!
