So, my hair is silver. It is now the middle of winter. It has been forever since my last post, a whole 3 months! My hiatus was unintentional, but much-needed. Sometimes you just need a breather to gather your thoughts and embrace the change in your life. But, that’s for another time.
Having grown up in Wisconsin, I have learned to embrace the cold and all that comes with it. That includes breathtaking backdrops like these that make you feel as if you’re in another place entirely. Combine an ice-covered lake with the golden hour and feel as if you’re on the set of a movie.
Like my style, my music taste can be described as eclectic. It ranges from the soft, melodic sound of Lana to the sassy beat of Elle King. The music I listen to tends to reflect my mood. When I’m feeling creative, I love listening to something upbeat that I can sing along to. When I’m feeling stressed, it’s nice to have a lighter tune that blends into the background.
Right now I have been crazy into Halsey. She is absolute perfection. Her album badlands has been playing on repeat for the past couple weeks. There is just something about her lyrics that is so entrancing. I highly recommend that you give her a listen.

Well, let’s jump into things. My birthday, an executive position for Her Campus, joined a new club. These are just a few of the things that have happened since school started. A month in, it has been a great start to the school year. Though I’d hate to admit I have too much free time on my hands, I do. Despite involving myself in some new activities, I’m afraid most of my days are spent curled up in my pajamas. I enjoy it more than one should.
Now let’s forget about that and talk about these shoes. These are honestly the most comfortable pair of heels I’ve ever owned. They’ve found their permanent place on feet and I can’t stop wearing them. Can I also mention how cozy this sweater is? I’ve had this hanging in my closet all summer just waiting to be worn. This was my first purchase from them. It won’t be the last.
Oh’ boy, has it been awhile. It seems as if this summer has just flown by. Even if I still have a month left at home. Though, some of you may have been wondering what I was up to in my absence.
To be honest, I’ve mostly been working. I got a job with a catering company and this is their busiest season. Though it’s been stressful, it’s been nice putting some money back into my savings for when school starts. I have also been working on my resume and some applications in an attempt to secure a job while at school. How else am I to support my shopping habits?
We got a puppy. Last fall we had to put our family dog down. So after some time to heal, I finally convinced my Mother that we needed a new member of the family. Dixie is our 7 month old troublemaker. She is a ball of energy and always has you on your toes.
Just catching up with old friends. I try to take any opportunity to spend time with my friends that chose to pursue their education out-of-state. We all have such different schedules, so every second together is cherished. We know it’s only going to get harder from here on, so we make sure not to waste a chance to hang out.
I don’t like summer. Period. I have about 3 outfits that are appropriate for this type of weather.
Getting projects done. I moved all my furniture up to my apartment last month. Before that, I was busy fixing things up and getting them ready to move. Lots of spray paint was involved.
But, most of all I’ve been relaxing. This past school year took a toll on me emotionally. With plenty of stressful moment and equally rewarding ones, I just needed a break from myself. To take a bit of time to decompress and reevaluate some things. It paid off, because I’m ready to start the year anew.
Can we just talk about how insanely gorgeous this floral crown is? The mixture of colors caught my eye and I made sure to quickly snatch it up. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of the floral crown trend. It adds a sense of whimsy to your look. You can’t help but feel especially feminine.
Our lilac bush here at home is in full bloom. I couldn’t resist using the vibrant flowers as my back drop for these photos. Can I mention how good they smell right now too? This is what I love about this season. The bright pops of color and the delicate smell of blossoms make spring so inspiring.
