art school // year 2

my second year at SCAD has started faster than you can say just about anything... to think that this time last week i was still in madrid blows my mind and is kind of sad but really thrilling at the same time.  even though i've been in savannah for five days now, i can still feel the jet lag (especially when my body just wakes up at 7am everyday even though i don't have class untill 11).  once i'm settled into my new house and i've gotten into the mojo of being a student again, i will update all y'all about my life, fashion and a whole lot more.  i'm super excited about this year and i can already tell its going to be great.  with that i leave you with this quote from jennifer schaffer

Forgive. Forget. Fake it. Chin up. Wear lipstick, make lists, make sure your voicemail isn’t full. Mix protein shakes, send timely thank you notes, sip drinks more slowly, stare at adults’ eyebrows, smile without dimples, develop perfect posture. Be gracious, be kind, eliminate self-pity. Look in the mirror and shift your internal monologue from ‘How do I look?’ to ‘This is my face,’ from ‘What the hell am I doing?’ to ‘This is my life.’ Capitalize your emails, read the news, walk briskly, stay focused, and never, ever let on that you are somewhat lost and sometimes lonely and so completely confused (and would someone please just let me know what it is I’m supposed to do next, where exactly I’m supposed to go–). Just keep going. Go, and do not stop.




Hi lovies, I hope you are all having a splendid start to September.  I'm in Madrid right now on vacation so I haven't been able to have access to my computer, but since I'm currently having a low-key day lounging around in workout wear (yeah, I'm in desperate need of a workout so I'm wearing my running clothes to fulfill my desire to exercise) I am able to do write a quick little post for you about one of my favorite looks that I wore my last week home in LA.  Obviously I wore my spanish espadrilles everyday to prepare for Spain!  

This is really making me miss home and I can't wait to get back there in a few months!

My look: Dress - Thrifted, Bra - Free People, Belt - Nordstrom, Espadrilles - Madrid street market, Jewelry - Paris street market, Grandma, Brandy Melville, Alex & Ani, jewelry store in Toledo, Spain, and Anthropologie
