First Day of School: OOTD and bits and pieces

Kaixo my dear friends!

First of all, I wanted to apologize for a lack of posting lately, but since flying to the US I haven't had the chance to stop: My day in Chicago, moving, getting the apartment ready... I got to Chicago at 2pm on Friday and after going through customs (BO-RING) and getting to my hostel I went shopping. Surprisingly (and fortunately for my wallet), I did not spend as much as I thought I would. I was looking for a specific pair of earrings that I didn't find anywhere (happy to announce that they are on my way from Neiman Marcus' website, holler!), which was a bummer, but I did find the other pair I was looking for, my first Kendra Scott earrings! The saleswoman let everyone in the store know it was my first pair. I got them through Color Bar, where you can customize jewelry. I got the Danielle earrings in magenta with silver metal tone. Gold doesn't look good on me and that's a truth I cannot escape.

Kendra Scott, 65$
I went to the new Vineyard Vines store to get a "I *insert whale* Chicago" tee, but I really wasn't very excited about it so I decided to save some money. Finally, I ended up in Nordstrom, and I got two very weird things to get there, in my opinion:

Nike, 30$
Betsey Johnson, 12$
Norts and a thong (sorry for being TMI about this but a) we all wear underwear and b) the pattern was too cute, sorry not sorry). And that was it. I was very surprised about it but considering I had just bought so much stuff at the After Party Sale I was fine with it. Also, I got all my items from the sale and they are beyond adorable!!

I finally wanted to show you my outfit of the day because today was the first day of school at U of I! First day of 19th grade!! (Man I am old and I've been in school for too damn long!) I was a little scared at first but it was overall a wonderful day!

I decided to keep it megasimple today, but I wanted to look chic too (duh!), so I paired a black trapeze dress with a light patterned scarf and black accessories. Wake up, #flawless.

My thoughts on having homework already
Dress: Zara // Bracelet: Zara // Watch: Old // Earrings: Kate Spade New York // Wayfarers: Ray-Ban // Flats: Zara // Scarf: Lilly Pulitzer (old)

I am a little scared about how this year will go by, honestly, but I can only imagine it'll be better than last year :) How was your first day? What did you wear?

  1. Good luck with school! I start fall classes next week and am already starting to feel swamped between preparing for that and working full-time. It'll be a good semester though and I hope yours is too!
