My Summer Plans

Summer is always my favorite time of year. I finally feel like I have some free time to do the things I love. I can finally put away those heavy jackets and pull out my favorite sun dresses. I can eat as many popsicles as I wish while I hang out on the couch and rewatch my favorite Netflix series and no one can do anything to stop me. 

Okay and do a few productive things....like complete an internship and get ahead on Panhellenic presidential duties before I blink and the school year is rapidly here.  

This summer, I decided to stay on campus for the MayX period and take a fun art class. I'm so glad I decided to stay on campus for an extra 3 weeks and had the chance to enjoy campus while the weather is nice! I always get frustrated during finals season when I'm stuck inside studying because I feel like I never have the chance to enjoy Furman's beautiful campus and the great area due to all the studying! 

Our first mural is still in the works but it's looking great so far!

My class is an art class and it's focused on public art in the Greenville community. We are working on two (very different) murals with local artists. It's so great to get up every morning and spend 3 hours painting. I've learned so much about the process of public art and the importance behind it! My art class ends next week, and I will quickly pack up my room/apartment, head home for my younger brother's high school graduation (!!!) and then fly up to New York City that same weekend where I will be completing my internship this summer!

 I will be working at a fashion PR company and couldn't be more excited for my city adventure! Terrifying that this is my last real "summer". It will definitely be an adventure and I'm excited to see what 2 months in the city holds! 

Let me know if you have any recommendations or your favorite things to do in the city!

My Junior Year Room

Yes, I am now officially done with my junior year. However, I am staying on campus for the month of May to take an on campus Mayx! Last summer I took a Mayx class (it's a class just for the month of May after regular classes are done) in Italy, but this summer I decided to stay on campus and take a fun art class! We are spending the month of May partnered with different local artists and working with them to paint 2 murals in Greenville! 

So, although the regular school year is done, I'm still living on campus for about another week and a half. I realized a few days ago I had never even posted pictures of my junior year room. So this is my junior year room post, after the school year!

Since I was studying abroad in Italy for first semester,  I only lived in this apartment for the second semester of my junior year. I think I made it very homey and I loved the colors I picked out!

Make sure you check out my other rooms through my college career. I feel like I've gotten pretty good at decorating small spaces by now.

Brown Leather Sandals

I'm back, back, back again!

School is over and this means I actually have a few seconds of free time to catch my breath and get back into blogging! Hooray! I'm going to post some more posts to update you on the last few weeks of my semester, as well as my summer plans (!!) so be on the lookout for that!

Brown leather sandals seem to be "The Summer Shoe" this year. And I'm definitely not complaining. Brown has always been my neutral of choice and brown sandals have always been a summer staple in my wardrobe (I've gone through 2 of these pairs). 

Last Summer while living in Paris, this pair of brown sandals were worn almost every day. I was on my second pair of my trusty, strappy brown sandals when I was walking down a Parisian street to meet a friend for dinner and my shoe completely broke! Right in the middle of the street! Luckily, there was a Forever 21 right across the street so I was able to go in and buy a super cheap pair of sandals so I had shoes to wear that night! 

*that's how much I wear brown sandals. Wore them right down to the breaking point!*

I got these Madewell ones last week and have already worn them multiple times. I also have my eye on the Tory Burch pair ;)
