Sophomore Room Tour!

It's crazy to believe that I've been back at school a little over a month already. In some ways I feel like it was just summer and in other ways it feels like summer was ages ago. 

Unlike last year, this year I am living in an apartment right off of campus. The most exciting part though is that I am living with my same roommate from last year. Since we worked so well together last year and grew so close, we decided to just room together again. Though we loved our pink and navy color scheme last year, we opted to try and make it seem a little less childish by going for lighter shades of pink with white and gold and we were obsessed with how it all came together.

My Typical Class Outfit

With classes officially in full swing now, I thought I would share some more back-to-school outfit inspiration! This outfit is super typical of what I wear to class on a daily basis. I love wearing both my white and blue denim skirts for class because they are so versatile and super comfy, while still looking more put together than denim shorts. 

SheIn Top c/o | Jolt Denim Skirt | Karen Walker Sunnies | Adidas Tennies | Madeline & Co. Backpack c/o | Gray Malin S'well Bottle 

I received this backpack from Madeline & Company and I was instantly in love upon opening the box. The colors were absolute perfection, but the icing on the cake is the navy and white striped detailing inside. The back is so functional because it fits absolutely everything I could need while still remaining super stylish and giving my drab school days the splash of pink they need. The best part is that there are so many pockets making it super easy to keep everything organized between classes. 

When I saw this top online, knew I had to have it. We all know I'm a sucker for anything navy, but the white ric-rac detailing on the hem and sleeves is what sealed the deal. The fabric is stretchy and comfortable, but a little on the thicker side, so it will be perfect once it cools down just a tiny bit. You know, when it's too cold to wear a tank top, but too hot for long sleeves. I think it would be so cute with white skinny jeans, or the new ripped (shocker, I know) jeans I just ordered and I can't wait to keep wearing it throughout the year! 

Because I live in an apartment off campus, I usually wear cute tennis shoes to stay comfortable while walking there and back every day. Although I have my bike, I love to get the extra steps in and have some fresh air to start and end my days.

Labor Day Sales and First Fall Picks

Labor Day means many things - the end of summer, the end of being allowed to wear white, and SALES. Labor Day sales make back to school shopping easy and fun! Ive had such a shopping bite lately, so I've compiled all the things I'm loving in a handy-handy widget below! There are tons of cute fall items that are included in the sales too like this puffer vest and this cape. I'm also dying over this striped dress which comes in at under $50 after the discount! Happy shopping!

Seersucker in Class

J.Crew Shirt (old) | Vineyard Vines Shorts (similar) | Longchamp Tote | Jack Rogers Sandals | Illesteva Sunnies 

Even though this was an outfit I wore while I was with Caroline and Fran back in July, it's also very typical of what I would wear to class during the school year. With yesterday being my first day of class for sophomore year, I figured it was fitting that I share some school outfit inspiration! I feel like picking outfits that are good for class, but still comfortable is a little tricky, which is why an eyelet shirt and comfortable shorts is the perfect combo.

Sorry for the quick post! We are in the middle of recruitment for my sorority and things are super hectic, so I might be a little MIA until next week, but I am going to try my best to keep up on social media so make sure you are following along!

Easy Summer Dresses Under $25

I've never really been one for fast fashion, but I'm also not the kind of girl who can easily say no to an amazing deal on super cute dresses. I recently came across the site SheIn and though at first I was a little bit skeptical of it, I was pleasantly surprised by how many affordable cute options I found! The clothing is all well priced to begin with, but they also always have really great sales going on that make the pieces even more of no-brainers. I looked through all the different categories on the site was able to find things I loved for pretty much every category, but I especially fell in love with the dresses. With the end of summer fast-approaching, I don't want to spend too much on new summer clothes, so this site is the perfect alternative. Check-out nine of the adorable dresses I found all for under $25! 

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight | nine

Although I'm only showing day-time dresses in this post, I know I'm going to be using this site as a resource for going-out clothes this year! I love that the clothes are priced so that I don't really have to worry if they get ruined or anything.

Denim and Gingham

This is another one of the outfits I wore while I was with Caroline back in Wisconsin! (I can't believe it's already been two weeks since I was there!) I wore my first full day there popping in and out of stores and exploring some of the adorable towns. It was pretty cloudy out and a little bit rainy and this outfit was perfect for that weather. The denim jacket was a great light layer!

This bag is the best bag ever. I remember when I got my first one (I was in eighth grade) and it's still the one I use the most today! The quality is extraordinary and the nylon makes it lightweight and easy to tote around. 

We are officially on our way to Hawaii today for some much needed R&R before I head back to school next Friday and I can't wait! I can't guarantee a post will be up every day while I'll be gone, but you can stay up to date with everything happening on Instagram and Snapchat (add me as preptista)!

Preppy Girl's Guide to: Packing Clothes for College

One of the hardest things for me during my freshman year was clothing. I felt like I had casual day-time wear down pat, but, when it came to going out, I was totally lost. Though I still would not consider myself an expert, I felt like I got much more comfortable with dressing as the year went by. 

As a favor to you all, I've compiled a list of all the clothing essentials you might need for every type of scenario at school. Since USC obviously does not have cold weather, I did my best to guess what you might need, but take this as a warning that there might be cold weather necessities I did not include. 

Like with my dorm packing list, you can download a printable PDF version of the list here

Be on the lookout for another post about going out clothes later this week.
