OMG School!

Uhm, I leave for NYC in literally three days... is that not crazy?!?!  That said, I have so many mixed feelings about leaving for school.  I am super excited, but at the same time incredibly scared.

Everything I know is where I've grown up including my family, my best friend, and Seth.  The thought of being without them is so weird and unnerving that I have cried a lot over the past few days.  The unknown is terrifying and I keep asking myself, will Seth and I stay together? Will my career as an actress really work out?  I don't know, but that is okay.

For my acting school, I had a few books I needed to read before class and one really spoke to me-- Comfortable with Uncertainty by Pema Chondron.  Pema's book is all about accepting the uncertainty of life, enjoying everything that comes your way, and staying positive in the face of panic and fear.  It is such a great read and really has helped me get through my fears of leaving.

Here's to new adventures in NYC!



Curating My School Wardrobe

I feel like it took me forever to finally get my fall wardrobe in order.  Much like Abbey, I wanted to have a more streamlined wardrobe for fall, one with some great neutrals a few statement pieces.  With this in mind, I started going through my closet and getting everything ready for college and here is a little layout of what I came up with!

orange dress/cords/skirt/t.la tees/long sleeve blouse/wine colored blouse/jeans/short trench/hat/necklace/earrings

I especially love the wine colored colored linden blouse (featured next to the white button down).  It is a great casual piece, but is still neutral enough that you can wear it season to season, and it is so flattering on every figure.

Two other pieces I want to highlight are the Pilcro cords and jeans.  For those of you who shop Anthro, you probably know that Pilcro is one of our signature brands with a great selection of cords, jeans, and chinos, as well as some other fun pieces.  The reason I want to highlight this brand is that they have been re-branding for Fall.  Pilcro is now starting to make more comfortable denim with better quality, yet still at the Pilcro price.  So, you should all check out Pilcro if you have the chance!

How did you curate your wardrobe for school? 


Shopping Probs

Honestly, the hardest thing I have had to figure out for NYC is my wardrobe.  I can't bring a whole lot and what I can bring needs to be super tailored because I am NOT going to be purchasing any clothes/accessories in NYC.  That, of course, has led me to do a lot of returns at work and I feel terrible.

Every time I come in I feel like I am returning or exchanging and I am just "that girl".  At least I work with people that get it, so it isn't that big of a deal, but this has brought me a lot of frustration with myself.  If I could change one thing about me, well two things, they would be my compulsiveness and my indecisiveness.  These two quirks do not go well together and lead me to make a lot of rash decisions (mostly on clothes) that then leave me regretting the decisions I made.

Luckily, I vented to a few coworkers and I feel a lot better about myself-- it is just who I am and I will always be that way.  Hopefully going on a break from shopping will help me cut down on those bad habits and on stress buying.  With school coming up, I have been so anxious that I haven't really been thinking a lot of my purchases through, however, once I am occupied with school, I think I will do a lot better.  Here is to a break from shopping!!

Are any of stress buyers like me?  How are you curating your wardrobe for school?

P.S. I will have a post up (hopefully) tomorrow on curating my wardrobe for the city!!



National Girlfriend's Day: Help a Girl Out

I'm normally not one to post about health aside from Yoga and relationships, however, National Girlfriend's Day really sparked my interest.  It is a day all about empowering women to take their health into their own hands, which I love; however, I feel like a lot of us, including myself, are very unsure of where to start when it comes to our health.

Since I am just now in college I am really starting to learn how to take care of myself, but there are a lot of things I don't know.  Luckily, I was introduced to Oscar Insurance and their fun info graphic for my blog (It is so cute, easy to follow, and super helpful, especially if you are where I am right now)!  They are running an awareness campaign to highlight the seriousness of empowering your girlfriends to concentrate on their health.
 I hope this info graphic was helpful and I hope it helps you to take your health into your own hands!  Feel free to save it and use it as a reference as you navigate growing up, and Happy National Girlfriend's Day :)


The Miss Information

About two months ago I became part of the Miss Information Blogger network and was given the opportunity to write for their site as well.  I cannot begin to explain how great this opportunity has been for me.  I have met so many great women and I love getting to write for such an awesome site!

What I really like about TMI though is the sense of community I have felt.  Everyone is there for each other.  I always feel like I have someone I can reach out to and I love sharing all of my thoughts with everyone.  It is great to have a group of people to bounce ideas off of!  

I could not be more thankful :)

Head on over and check out TMI!
