Wild and Free

6DSC_0639235

I have really been into the bohemian style recently. Maybe it’s because Coachella is going on, but I’ve hopped on the band wagon with the whole 70’s trend. I’m not a big print person, but I fell in love with this vintage cross pattern. The warm colors create a softer look and give it a more romantic feel. There’s something about Spring that makes me want to wear light and flowy pieces. But I do like to pair them with tougher accessories to give it some edge. This bag I got from H&M is one of those pieces. I can’t resist fringe so I knew I had to have it when it first caught my eye. It has been one of my best purchases, and it is surprisingly versatile.

To join in the spirit of Coachella, I’ve been listening to Florence and the Machine non-stop.Words can’t describe how much I want to see her in person and I’m sad I have to miss out. Instead her latest single St. Jude has been playing on repeat from my tiny dorm room. For those of you also wishing you were there, I’d love to hear what’s on your festival playlist?

Wanderlust

As of late, I’ve been overwhelmed with wanderlust. I’ve always wanted to go on a cross county road trip. Driving coast to coast with a car full of friends. The adventure of “getting lost some where” and making stops to see the sights along the way. Each day is spent somewhere new, while the radio is being blasted and you sing at the top of your lungs. Plans aren’t needed, because each moment is special. I love the idea of roughing it and sleeping underneath the stars. Days spent on the beach and no worry of the time. I no plans and no car, but I hope to take a trip this summer. Whether it’s just a trip an hour away or a drive all the way down to Florida, I only wish to indulge my need for travel.

This time of the of year in Wisconsin always amazes me. Just last week we got a couple of snowy days. Now today, we reached a high of 60 degrees. The warm weather has got me pumped for Spring. As of late, I’ve been trying to get myself back into the habit of exercising. Without a gym, I had spent the past few months curled up on the couch watching way to much reality tv. The rising temperatures have gotten me in the mood to start changing some of my habits and making better habits. Nothing to extreme. Just taking some small steps towards a better lifestyle. Starting off with a few simple things, such as adding more fruits & veggies to my diet and taking the initiative to go outside for walks.

The Meltdown

Only in Wisconsin can can it go from -10 to 50 degrees in a matter of three days. Though i full admit the warm weather has been much anticipated on my part. The sunny skies had perfect timing, with my spring break starting in only two days.

Prep School

I made it through my first week of classes, and now it’s on to the next. With only one class to go to in person, my schedule is much more open. Besides investing a large amount of time into my online classes, I hope to be more active. Not just exercising, but involving myself in more things. This means leaving the comforts of my dorm room and stepping out into the world.
We already had our first meeting of the year for Her Campus. I am beyond stoked to mention that I will not be in charge of writing for the style section of the Stout charter. Words can’t even describe how grateful I am. I look at this as practice for the future, a great learning opportunity to help better my writing skills.
