If you follow me on Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter, then you know that over this past weekend I was invited to attend the Her Campus College Fashion Week event in Boston. I wasn’t a member of Her Campus while I was in college, but they always remained in my periphery until recently. I was featured in an article about body confidence on their website, and a few months after that they invited me to join their influencer network and I accepted. All I can say is that I’m so flattered and excited that I get a chance to work with the Her Campus team.
Hey guys! Many of you know that I’m pretty much always struggling with wanting to eat healthy, but not having enough time to cook for myself. Slash not having a ton of affordable options for healthy prepared foods.
Snacks in particular can be rough. Why am I paying like $4.00 for this bar of cashew butter? How did I get here? What am I doing with my life?
While the New York’s portion of the official “fashion month” may have already come and gone, the bi-annual globe-trotting circus known as fashion week always gets me thinking about how I would prepare for what I can only assume is a long, sometimes painful, but dare I say incredible journey (heh heh). I’m an anxious over planner who likes to be prepared for anything, because there’s nothing worse than having no time for lunch. Or even worse, you think you have enough time for lunch but you miscalculated how many freaking people exist on this planet, and the long wait time leaves you sans bathroom break, sans concealer touch up, and, worst of all, sans panini before you have to head to your next show.
So I’ve created what I think is a pretty comprehensive Fashion Week survival kit to bring with you if you ever find yourself attending a fashion week of your own. I’ve broken everything down into 3 sections, depending on what your schedule looks like and your general level of paranoia you can adjust your own survival kit accordingly.
Ever since I graduated college and started living in my own apartment, I’ve had a fascination with interior design. I suppose this isn’t surprising; decor is kind of like fashion for your apartment. And I love fashion. If you follow me on Pinterest, then you probably already have some ideas as to my aesthetic for interiors, but I thought I might start using this blog as a way to share some of my thoughts on how to make a space both beautiful and functional (and what better place to start than the entryway, right?). Partly because I feel like all this pinning should be put to good use, but also because I feel like a lot of media focused on interior inspiration falls short when it comes to function.
Sure, I really like the super clean, simple look, but when I actually think about living in this type of space, I often end up saying “wait, but where would I put all my stuff? I’d ruin the whole vibe of this room the second I move in”. As with fashion, decor should aim to be stylish, comfortable, and functional. No one wants the Christian Louboutin equivalent of an apartment (damn sexy but so uncomfortable you want to cry after five minutes of standing).
So I’ve put together a short list of seven things I think every entryway needs. Don’t have an entryway? No problem, you’ll still want these things close to your front door.
I’m super late to jump on the lace up flat band wagon, but it took this particular pair of Michael Kors beauties to turn me into a convert. I seriously can’t wait to wear these with skinny jeans, a T, and a giant cardigan when fall comes around. Is it too soon to be planning autumn/winter looks? I can’t help it =D
more layers = more clothes = more fun getting dressed. Am I right?
What do you guys think of lace up flats? Be sure to check these babies out in the shopping section below! They’re on sale at 6pm =)
