First Day of School Outfit + Thoughts

First Day of School Outfit + Thoughts

I cannot believe it’s already the first day of my junior year of college! It feels like just yesterday I was anxious and excited to move into my dorm room and meet my roomie for the first time. Thanks to my Google Photo Memories, I was reminded that two years ago this time I attended a Colorado Rockies baseball game in downtown Denver as part of freshman orientation, and one year ago I got to play my university’s carillon in the bell tower (aka “The Golden Nipple”—if you know, you know) and was asking the tall boys from down the hall to help my suitemates and me hang our string lights.

Today I want to start the tradition of publishing a monthly round-up blog post at the end of each month. I’ve seen other bloggers do these weekly and monthly recap posts (especially Styled by McKenz—if you don’t follow her, you should!), and I love the journal-like vibe of them. Not to mention, I’m not the best at setting short-term goals. I always have the big ideas swirling in my head but have a much harder time breaking them down to smaller, more manageable chunks and timeframes. Hopefully these monthly posts help me do just that, as well as allow me to share what has inspired, entertained, and interested me during this past month. Here we go!
