When people ask me my favorite season I have such a hard time answering – there is so much to love about each season! But when people ask for my favorite season for fashion that’s easy. I live for fall fashion. Being able to wear cozy layers, deep colors, and fab boots is my absolute favorite and even though just a few days ago it was in the nineties – it’s already fall in my mind. So even though I can’t exactly wear any of my fall clothes yet, I have been mentally preparing outfits in my head for weeks. With this… View Post

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Filene’s Basement. All opinions are 100% mine. Shopping online is kind of my jam – I love how it’s easy to find what I want in minutes with just a few clicks rather than having to go to three different stores over the span of an hour to find something that is sort of what I was looking for. But my other jam is discount stores – I’m all about saving money and shopping sales – something that is harder to do online. In store it seems like I… View Post

The countdown is on for back to school (nine days for me!) and that has meant back to school shopping, and a lot of it! When it comes to going to class my first priority is comfort but of course I also want to look cute.

One of my favorite things about the back-to-school season is finding all of the best deals on new trends for the fall. This year is the first year that I haven’t procrastinated on my shopping, and I was definitely rewarded for it – I was able to find everything on my list at JCPenney and I found a few cute pieces that I didn’t even know I wanted! When it comes to navigating the mall, I’m still desperately clinging onto my youth and shopping in the juniors department (and let’s be honest, I don’t see an end to that in… View Post

When it comes to back to school I’m trying not to think too much about the late nights at the library, exams, and the stress that comes with classes. Instead I’m looking at the positives – catching up with friends, living in an apartment instead of the dorms, and game day. Game day at Illinois is always so fun and so festive. Blue and orange as far as the eye can see and so many fun events. Even if historically our team hasn’t always been the best (hey! We’re working on it!) the support is there. Morph suits, face paint, and crazy… View Post
