First Day of Junior Year Rundown

So my apartment at school is kind of a mess.  My attempt to be all moved in by the time classes started was a fail.  I started classes yesterday & for now it's a work in progress.  When I'm all set up I will be posting pictures, I worked really hard over the summer to get things that would make my place cute & homey, & I cannot wait to be all set up!  

As I said yesterday was my first day back to school, I am a major dork who at 21 years old still gets a "First Day of School Outfit".  At my school most people get pretty dressed up for class, this year I went for something different then I would typically pick, which I am so happy I did.  I loved my outfit.  

Dress & Belt: Smak Parlour / Shoes: MIA 
Rings: Pandora & Local Shops / Earrings: South Moon Under / Backpack: Vera Bradley

I've never brought anything with a high-low hemline, but I think this dress is adorable.  It's also super versatile & I'm thinking I will maybe be able to wear it to a sorority function if I dress it up with different accessories & heels.  The earrings I wore are one of my favorite pairs I own, & I always like to have a few rings on.  My backpack is the one that I used last year, I believe both the pattern & style are retired, but I love it.  It's tiny, but works great for me because I usually only carry around my iPad, & a few pens & pencils.  My nail polish is a gel manicure, which I am addicted to!  If you haven't gotten one, you have to soon, they are amazing.  They initially only had pinks & reds available, but they are starting to come out with fun colors like this one, which is so pretty & happened to match the accessories I chose for the day.

After I finished my classes (early!) my sister came over (she's a freshmen up the street from me!) so I could help her buy her books.  When we finished with all the school stuff we went to the King of Prussia Mall to do a little shopping & have a nice dinner.  For dinner we went to Legal Seafood, they are amazing with food allergies especially gluten & wheat issues (they even have a separate fryer!).  We both ordered off the gluten free menu & had calamari for an appetizer, then I had fried clams for dinner.

It was delish & I recommend trying it!

When we were done with dinner it was time to do a little shopping.  We headed to American Apparel so I could get something off of my back to school shopping list.

I picked up the American Apparel Shiny Legging in Lamé Black ($42.00).  The best part was that through September 2nd they are giving 10% off when you show your student id!  That was a very nice surprise.

Overall I would say I had a successful first day of classes!  How did you start off your week?

  1. How fun that your sister is at school with you!

  2. The history of hairdressing is a long and fascinating one. Hairdressing has been around for thousands of years, with evidence of hair cutting and styling dating back to ancient Egypt. Over time, hairdressing has evolved into a highly skilled profession, with hairdressers using a wide range of tools and techniques to create beautiful hairstyles. Today, modern hairdressers use a variety of equipment, including scissors, razors, combs, and hair dryers, to create the perfect look for their clients. They also use a range of styling products, such as gels, sprays, and mousses, to help clients achieve their desired look. The art of hairdressing continues to evolve, with new trends and techniques emerging all the time.
    Here at the heart of the hairdressing profession lies the hair salon. A hair salon is a place where people can come to have their hair cut, styled, and colored. Hair salons offer a wide range of services, from simple haircuts to more complex coloring and styling techniques. In addition to hairdressing services, many hair salons also offer nail care, skin care, and other beauty treatments.
