Being abroad almost this whole year so far means tons of awesome new experiences, lots of sightseeing, and plenty of adventure. Being on the go a lot also means packing light, and so I’ve been keeping it simple with jeans and tees most of the time.

In between spring study abroad and my summer internship, however, I was back home in America and wore this….

dress: Isaac Mizrahi for Target
black suit jacket: Anne Taylor Loft
bag: Topshop, London, England
sandals: Rome, Italy
vintage necklaces

Five Things Friday

Five things I’m loving this week….

1. This earring display I saw on the street in Rome! It was so functional and creative. My ears aren’t pierced, but if they were I would totally have bought earrings from this guy.

2. This toy camera from Poketo. I love the idea of these toy cameras, and I love my Diana Mini!

outfit snapshot. – new year’s eve!


A little bit late but…

Happy New Year’s everyone!! How did you celebrate the new year? I kicked off 2011 with Stephanie and some other friends, a few impromptu resolutions, and looots of cake candy and sugar. It was a great way to end 2010 and welcome 2011!

I wore a blouse from Ann Taylor Loft, a jacket I’ve had for a while, a new gray scarf I got for Christmas (!), and gold Toms. : )

I also tried to follow along with this super cool scarf-tying technique… but I didn’t quite get it right. I think it turned out pretty well, though! : )

Here’s hoping everyone has a great 2011!

Yesterday was a muggy, rainy day. It was chilly in the morning and evening, warm in the afternoon, and sweaty on the shuttles back and forth to main campus!


Tunic shirt from H&M, and black skirt + pink fishnet leggings from Target.
