Today is my last first day of school…maybe forever! When did I get so old? Honestly, I’m a little bit sad. The first few days of classes are always so exciting, you get to see what all you’ll be learning about that semester, and maybe make new friends! It also makes me really nervous, because I see everything that I have to do during the semester- I have a tendency to not take things one step at a time and get unnecessarily overwhelmed. I actually did that this weekend, before classes even started, so hopefully I will have calmed down by the time I actually get in the classroom.
Anyways, over the past month or so, I’ve been thinking a lot about my “big girl” apartment that I’m going to get when I graduate and move to an unknown city, which I will pay for with a job I do not yet have. Some may call this counting your chickens before they hatch, but I call it being excited. In my room at school, I have a blue, gray, and dark purple color scheme that I really love, but I would like to shake it up a little. I have a picture in my mind of a gray or neutral couch with black and gold end tables and other furniture, and bright jewel tones as accents. I want it to be a colorful, fun, and cheerful place! It’s kind of hard to explain, but I’ve found endless inspiration on Pinterest. This isn’t my entire Home board, but a few of my favorites that capture what I’m going for!
This morning I was having a mild wardrobe crisis while getting ready for work. It was one of those days where you just don’t feel like wearing any of the clothes appropriate for the occasion (and I KNOW everyone has those days). I tried dresses, pants, and multiple shirt and cardigan combos, but they ended up thrown on my bed in frustration (they’re actually still there as I type, in mountains on each side of me.). I felt like I’d recently worn everything in my closet and wanted something different. Some of the girls in my office have worn colored jeans to work, so I decided that I could do that too! I chose my fuchsia jeans from JCPenney (no longer available in this color), and paired it with my gray shell from Loft (similar) in order to make the outfit look slightly more professional and less trendy. I’m always afraid that I’ll wear something that screams “summer intern”, and even though that’s what I am, I don’t want it to be obvious! I added my Kendra Scott Neely necklace to give the top a little interest. I finished the look off with my trusty black sandals from Target! I recently bought these, and I honestly don’t know how I’ve gotten this far without black sandals-they go with literally everything! I got many compliments on this outfit, which is great since I threw it together 5 minutes before I left for work!
