Blending in Montreal

Hello darling! How is your week going? The temperature is starting to drop more and more. Last week, I explored Montreal with a few friends. I talked about the actual trip here. I wanted to show you this outfit from the trip.

I’ve been really obsessed with this suede jacket so obviously I had to wear it in another post. I did wear it in my last post and just a warning I am wearing it in the next post! I adore how much it adds to any outfit. It’s dresses up a causal outfit and is so versatile.

I grabbed this American Eagle blouse at Marshalls and I love all the different colors in it. It is one of the comfiest shirts I own! I would love to pair this shirt with mustard pants because it has random mustard pieces in it. However, I think it also would work perfectly with a bright blue shirt or these amazing purple pants. Fun fact: my brothers used to sing this really weird song and it went as so “Logan pink pants porterrrrrr, Logan pink pants porterrrr” and they would continue to taunt me with it for the longest time.

As for the shoes, I’ve been wearing these J.Crew loafers for quite some time. The two tassels on each shoe is really why I’m so in love with them. I think its a perfect added texture to any outfit.

What do you think about graffiti in cities? I really enjoy them when they’re not offensive and they’re beautifully done like this one. In Portland, Maine they actually pay people to paint certain things in the street. I would love to see all of the different expressions scattered on each wall.

As always,

Sunday Snapshot: Last of Winter break

Hello darlings! I had yet another week of only going to the gym and watching Netflix. The only thing that has changed is… I started getting ready to go back to college. That translates to me dragging around stuff in my basement and trying to figure out what I need and don’t need. I had to get kitchen stuff for this semester because I’ll be living in a townhouse! Woo. What an upgrade. I’m incredibly excited to be able to cook meals and tell you about them. Can you tell I went for a “blue” theme for kitchen supplies?

We were cleaning them before they get used. I’ll post better pictures of all the goodies next week, I promise.

I went out to dinner to Bricco with my parents. For non Connecticut citizens, Bricco is an Italian restaurant in West Hartford. It was my first time going and it was lovely. It was interesting seeing the differences between Italy and America restaurants. The calamari was fantastic and their chicken parmigiana special was even better.

What is a Sunday Snapshot post in Connecticut without a lovely picture of Butch. We were cuddling while watching Pretty Little Liars… yes, it’s a guilty pleasure.

I’ve also posted an About Me section on my blog. It’s incredibly witty if I say so myself. If you feel like checking it out click on this fun link. 

Today, I’m heading to Massachusetts to celebrate my Granddaddy’s 90th birthday. All but one of my family members are going. It’s going to be grand. On Monday, I’ll be heading up to school and Tuesday I start classes. It’s certainly going to be strange going back to normal life. Is that weird to say? I mean going to classes and not flying to another country the next day. Is it weirder to say I’m super excited to just be a normal college student? Up to you to decide!

Since I’m going back to school, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to post three times a week. I might start only doing Sunday Snapshots and maybe a post on just Thursday/Wednesday. Just until May. I haven’t decided yet, but I’ll be sure to let you guys know. I have a few fun projects in mind in the upcoming months, so I hope you keep an eye out.

If you’re a college student, have you already gone back?

As always,

Sunday Snapshot: Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day darlings! I thought I would share some awesome pictures of my father and family today.

I’m so beyond grateful to be handed the deck of cards that placed me in such a loving home. I have two lovely parents who taught me morals of working hard, being honest, and being respectful. My parents are my biggest cheerleaders. They are some of the best people on the planet and I truly believe that. My parents are the most hardworking people I have ever met and they seem to find the joy in everything.

My family isn’t a big Mother’s/Father’s Day celebrating family. To us these days are just an extra reminder to tell your parents how much you love them, explain how grateful you are that they accept you for who you are, and say thank you for all the years they cheered you on. Thank you, Dad. You gave me the courage to go abroad in the fall. You took me to Europe senior year and helped me develop a love for traveling. You’ve constantly cheered me on even when I changed my major not two but three times. You encouraged and help me write my book senior year. You helped me become who I am today. You’ve always been there for me whether I need a pep talk, a tissue, or just someone to talk to.

Since I didn’t make a Sunday Snapshot post on mother’s day, I thought I’d say thank you to my Mom as well. My mom taught me that it’s okay to eat Oreos at any given time of the day. She taught me how important exercise is and getting up and moving. She has spend hours with me trying on clothes and her doing the same thing. She has taught me to stand up for something that I believe in. That if something isn’t fair I should stick up for myself and others.

Both of my parents have always been there for me and my brothers. We are very lucky. They have taught us to be proud of who we are, to have a strong backbones, and to work hard for what we want. Most importantly they have taught us love. Something that I know many kids miss out on. I am so fortunate to have parents that love each other each and every day.

Like I said before, I am so lucky to have been dealt this deck of cards.

Thank you for being who you are.

I love you, Mom and Dad.

Tell your parents that you love them.
