Philly is definitely on my top 5 list for favorite cities. The vibe is just so similar to my personal vibe--artsy, creative, more "laid-back" than NYC. Don't get me wrong, I love the buzz and constant go-go-go of New York. But I also like to supplement my trips to New York with ones to Philly. I was in Philly last week for a VERY exciting day (one that I'll perhaps tell you about later on)! Anyways, here is what I wore. 
Only a few weeks left of stress before I can finally relax a bit...and pay more attention to this blog!!! (Sorry guys, but for now college apps have been taking priority)! This Spring I've got a lot of great stuff planned for Wear Abouts :)
P.S...I've been FEATURED! By the amazing Ashley of Twenties Girl Style. She's one of my favorite bloggers and I'll even go as far as saying we have very similar styles...because I may have taken "inspiration" once or twice or ten times too far from her awesome outfits! Thanks for inspiring me always Ashley! 

Head on over to Twenties Girl Style to see me on the feature, "Yeah, I really own that...". Also you probably want to know what exactly it is that I own. :)

Living the Kusi Life

Headbandc/o KusiLife | Dress- Forever 21 | Sweater- Marshall's | Boots- Lucky Brand via Macy's | Necklace- c/o ONecklace | Earrings- Anthropologie (gifted) | Bracelets- Attachments LLC

I am loving this warm fall weather, when I can still wear dresses with bare legs but I can also wear boots and sweaters! Another new addition to my accessories wardrobe is this cozy headband from KusiLife

I've never been much of a headband person--until I tried this one! It's elastic on the part underneath my hair and a cute knit pattern on the part that shows. Everything on their website is handmade, and a percentage of the proceeds go to the socially conscious projects in Peru.

Can't beat that!

Don't Sweat It

Sweater- Marshall's | Skirt- c/o Too Sexy Store | Boots- Steve Madden | Watch- c/o Daniel Wellington

In a few weeks, my first trimester grades will come out and be sent to colleges. At this point, I've done everything else I can to be the best, well-rounded student that I can be. I enjoy my extracurriculars, I love my classes, and this blog, though I haven't had as much time as of late to devote to it as I'd like, means so much to me. 
I think that's what really makes you a good candidate at a college; I don't just do things "because they'll look good on my application". I'll admit, that's been a motivator before. But now that I've already applied to a few schools and all I can really do is wait, I realize that doing what you love is what really matters. Admissions officers can see through those kids with ten billion extracurriculars. I've heard this a million times in my life as a high schooler and I'm only now starting to understand it--and to all of you out there who are juniors, sophomores, even freshmen in high school--trust me when I say it: be yourself. Don't be someone you're not in your application. If I don't get into the schools I want to, I'm gonna keep my head up because I know that some school is going to want me for who I am and that I'll be happy at any of the wonderful schools I'm applying to. 
My motto for these next few weeks as I get my senior grades and then, merely weeks later, some college decisions: don't sweat it.
