Back to School

I've literally been dreading writing this blog post because it is the last one I will write before heading back to school.  I am definitely one of those typical teenagers that absolutely hates going back to school and would rather be doing anything else.  But this year it's a bit different.  This year, I am starting college.  In three days I am moving to New York City and starting my first year at NYU.  That was a scary sentence.  Of course I'm excited, but I don't think I'm really going to let myself be too enthusiastic until everything has settled and I have gotten through my first week of classes.  I'm just too nervous! However, something that calms my nerves slightly is knowing what I will be wearing on the first day; one less thing to worry about. 

The first week of september is basically still the middle of summer so I've opted for shorts and an airy tank top.  These faux Birkenstocks are pretty much the most comfortable shoes in existence, perfect for my 10 minute walk from my dorm on Union Square to my classes on Washington Square Park.  And it is absolutely essential that I still feel like myself with all this change going on, so I've piled on the gold jewelry.  I also made a video on my back to school hair, makeup, and outfit that I've inserted above, or you can watch here

Wow writing this blog post hasn't calmed my nerves at all.  See you on the other side!

White Out

Madewell tee and long necklace
Helmut Lang jeans
Michael Kors wedges
3.1 Phillip Lim for Target bag
Nasty Gal safety pin necklace (similar here)
Topshop circle ring

Fun fact: whilst googling these jeans to try and find a link, I learned that they are actually called the "white wash cropped moto jeans". CROPPED. THESE JEANS ARE SLIGHTLY LONG ON ME. I found this quite a depressing thought. 

As far as shopping goes, there may be few things more exciting to me than Chelsea Market sample sales.  I was in NYC for the day last weekend with some friends and we absolutely adore Chelsea Market, and we became far too curious by the handfuls of women carrying Helmut Lang bags to not go and check out the sale.  The deals were absolutely insane.  Everything was hundreds of dollars off and I nearly started to drool.  These white jeans were an absolute steal for $70.  They are soft and clean and fitted and have zippers and pockets and my gosh I'm slightly in love with them.  They are just the best things.  They are currently on sale on the website (link above) so get them whilst you can!  

I am a big fan of either wearing loads of colors or none at all, so for this look I wanted to stick to my absolute favorites: black, white, and gold.  I love dressing up a plain tee and wearing all white makes me feel quite luxurious.  It feels like all I've been wearing lately is black, white, grey, and gold; I think I am embracing the simplicity of summer dressing and I love it. A lot. Do you?
