Again, I'm reppin' the best school ever shamelessly and completely. In case it wasn't already obvious, I'm obsessed with orange and blue and will find every way possible to get it into my everyday-wear! I could promise you that this will be the last time before I go away that I'll be wearing orange and blue but...that's probably not true.
Speaking of going away... according to the countdown on my laptop screensaver, I move in in 27 days!! HOW CRAZY IS THAT! Those of you reading this are probably not as excited/blown away by how close it is as I am. Other than my mom. Shout-out to her cause she probably thinks it's even crazier than I do.
Last but not least, I just want to point out that I'm fully embracing my inner-prep with this outfit... because although the outfit itself isn't necessarily preppy, the accessories sure are! I'm at it again with the gold chain style from Marrin Costello. AND I'm LOVING monogram!
Like this laptop case from 9th and Elmthat I ordered specifically for school. I'll never lose it because it has my initials on it, AND it'll be perfect for showing off my UVA pride all year long. It was so fun to click through all of the handmade and independent designs that were monogrammed on 9th & Elm. The necklace I'm wearing is from there too... and trust me, they have way more than monogrammed accessories. They've got cute clothes, accessories, even home goods. Check 'em out, y'all.
Last week I was in Charlottesville for orientation at UVa and BOY was it HOT! I felt like I was melting and my hair was frizzing off my head... not a good look, let me tell you.
So this week I've come up with some back to school outfit ideas to keep cool--cause in late August in Virginia, it's gonna be HOT. This top from Lulu*s is perfect because of the open sides and lacy trim. Of course, accessories are SUPER important for once I'm at school, so I'm starting to narrow down what I can bring to fit in my teeny tiny dorm...
These chained beauties from Marrin Costello definitely make the cut. Chain is so in and gold is always classic...I think that this necklace is going to be my alternative to "pearls"! At UVa, pearls are huge among the girls in sororities and for football games. I'm definitely planning on being both a sorority girl and a football fan, but I think I'm gonna put my own twist on classy with gold chain instead of the stereotypical pearls!
Can't believe I'm off in just a month. UVa I'm comin' for ya! :)
