Alas, the time has come. And no I’m not crying, I just happen to be chopping an onion as I write this post. I mean when you think about it, we’ve done a lot together this past year. We’ve been back to school (twice), gone to New York City (twice), made numerous beach trips, had countless cooking frenzies and DIY-ed basically everything possible.

I feel so incredibly blessed to have had this opportunity to share a little bit of my life with you guys. Your support has meant the world to me and this blog has pushed me to become a better person, one who chases her dreams and isn’t afraid of what others will think. For that, I am forever thankful.

What’s in My Backpack

Backpacks: also known as the container of all things crucial during the school year. They are basically my life and they keep me sane, so I figured I’d show y’all some of the things I like to carry in mine for school. (Cue the “Backpack” song from Dora the Explorer. Haha.)

makeup bagwater bottle, some notebooks and headphones are just a few of my essentials.

Back-to-School Outfit Ideas

One of the things, actually the only thing, that helps me get excited for going back to school is picking out outfits to work while strutting down the halls.

I know that picking out what to wear in the morning can be a bit stressful and sometimes downright impossible. Hopefully I can inspire y’all with these back-to-school outfit ideas!

Back-to-School Inspiration

As much as we hate to admit it, back-to-school season is upon us. But with it comes cute new supplies and my personal fave…outfits! So today I figured I’d show y’all some quick BTS outfit inspo!

My friend Sam (pictured below) and I are both pretty girly with a flair of bohemian fierceness—is that even a thing? Haha. So we decided to showcase that in our outfits.

It’s summer: it’s hot outside, and nothing feels better than a loose, breezy romper on my sweaty bod. By now you all know that I’m obsessed with Free People, and this white crochet romper by them is one of my faves!

One of the reasons I love this romper so much is because of the open back and ribbon detailing. Unfortunately, this baby is sold out but there tons of other cute dresses and rompers from Free People. You can find similar styles herehere, and here.

Travel Diary: New York City

Here are a few more pictures from my epic trip to New York City. Hope you enjoy, lovelies.

Of course I had to make my way to Madison Avenue and stop by Ladurée to experience everything Blair Waldorf stood for in “Gossip Girl.”

Central Park. This was my first time going where it wasn’t covered in snow and I fell completely in love.

Kate Spade New York is one of my favorite designers and her Madison Ave store was just too cute.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Every year around the middle of July my heart gets happy and my wallet gets heavy in anticipation of THE BEST SALE EVER. Here are some of my top picks from the sale, just in time for you to snag them before prices go up.

1. Free People Stitch Detail Plaid Shirt
Plaid is a must-have every fall season! I love how Free People amped up this closet essential by adding some mineral wash distressing and cutout string detailing.

2. Socialite Knit Tank Dress
T-shirt dresses have become HUGE this year, and I love the fun and flirty twist this floral one provides for fall. Plus, it’s a great piece when transitioning from the smoldering summer to the … well … still pretty hot other seasons that SoCal experiences!

Packing Hints & Tips


I wouldn’t say that I’m some type of world traveler who jets of to Europe all the time (what 17 year old really is?), but I definitely have had my fair share of epic vacays. But with vacations comes packing, which used to be such a struggle for me. I would overpack, bring all the wrong things, and overall the experience was kinda just bleh. That’s why today I’m showing you guys some of my top tips for packing–hope it helps you out!

Roll your clothes: This is my number one favorite way to pack and you all need to try it. Rolling your clothes allows for so much more room in your suitcase meaning more outfits to choose from on your trip!

Bring things you’ll actually wear: I have read so many articles about what clothing you should bring on a trip and used to always go by those lists. Then I realized I never ended up wearing half the things I brought, either because I didn’t really like some of the pieces or they just weren’t my style. For example, the lists always suggested to bring jeans but I NEVER wear jeans so they would just take up space. So bring things you know you’ll wear and are true to your personal style!

Some pieces I never travel without: Comfy yogas, a colorful pullover, and chic but functional sneakers.

As you can tell, Olive did not want me leaving for this trip…probably because I slip her tortilla chips when nobodies looking!

Happy packing!

Brand Spotlight: Free People

Anyone who knows me is quite aware that I am utterly obsessed with Free People. I absolutely love everything about this brand and their versatility throughout the seasons. I recently got this cobalt blue coverup by Free People and now it’s my must have for the beach or pool.

I’ve been coveting pretty much everything Free People has been coming out with lately, but some of my favorites are this multi-colored T-Shirt Dress (so cool and funky!) and this fun and flirty classic Lace Tunic.
