I’m leaving for Paris in about a week, and I already have everything packed for my trip. I will be in Paris for a full academic year (which is about 11 months). How am I going to make almost a year of clothing, shoes, toiletries, etc fit into a few suitcases? Well, I am taking 3 suitcases FULL of stuff. 1 carry on, and 2 suitcases that I’ll have to check in. I really thought ONE carry on, and ONE checked luggage would be enough……. NOT AT ALL.

Remember: I’m taking sweaters, jackets, shoes, pajamas, underwear, shirts, pants, dresses, skirts, socks, etc; and the sweaters alone took up so much space. My only concern is lugging around 3 suitcases, but my sister reminded me that they do have trolleys at the airport, so I should be fine.

I want to show you guys some of the things I’m taking with me on the trip, and I’ll try to include links in case you were interested.



I’m taking a standard bag which will function as my school bag, and a purse. I used it last semester, and I just love it so much. It’s roomy, functional, and super adorable. If you’re thinking of getting this Transport Tote from Madewell, I say: DO IT. FOUND HERE.

I also recently bought this suede fringe one! Two bags is perfect! I’ll stuff this in my luggage, because I’m taking the transport tote with me on the plane. FOUND HERE.



I’m taking so many shoes, only because I need variety for the different seasons! Boots, flats, sandals. Here are a few that I’m taking:

These loafers from Madewell, in this cheetah print is so fun! I also got them in plain brown leather. So cute. ON SALE HERE.

I need a good pair of sneakers to take with me! These are on sale too, at Madewell. They also come in a pretty burgundy shade. FOUND HERE.



This velvet skirt is from Loft (and on sale!) Found here.

This adorable sweater skirt, from Madewell, also on sale! So cute on! FOUND HERE.

I’m a huge fan of J.CREW denim! They fit amazing, and are so flattering. If you go to their website, they have a lot on sale right now. I only get their jeans, on sale! FOUND HERE.


I’m so excited! I can’t believe my trip is right around the corner!



fall semester 2016.


It is officially Fall semester! I cannot believe how fast my summer flew by. I enjoyed the summer relaxing all day long, reading books, binge watching t.v. shows/movies, hanging out with Lola and my boyfriend…. but now it’s time to get back to the grind. I am taking five classes, two of which are online. I really need to focus & be organized this semester.

If you are in school, I wish you a successful & productive semester! You can do it!



My tote is from madewell. 



bags i’m loving: madewell edition.

Since I’m starting school this Fall, I’m looking for a new bag! Something that holds up well, that won’t break, doesn’t  look OR feel cheap. So I’m willing to fork out extra money for good quality. I found a few bags (some I’ve been eyeing for years) and thought I’d share them with you.
