OOTD: Sorority Formal and Graduation

28 Jun

I just wanted to showcase the two dresses that I wore on repeat for graduation and wedding festivities. They were light and easy to pack given my limited time and space!

To Black Diamond Ball and for senior sorority pictures, I wore a black dress with lace overlay that I received from Lulu’s last year. This year they have this one which is almost identical, and it’s only $39! I paired it with Enzo Anglioni heels (and a handsome date was also a key accessory ;) )

For my graduation, my cousin’s graduation, and to a friend’s wedding, I wore this fabulous number from BB Dakota (now on sale for $42.) It was perfect! Paired here with Sam Edelman flats.

If you need to pack light but also need outfit versatility, I definitely recommend having two pieces like these. It was so easy to transform them for different events, and they didn’t take up a lot of space or cost a lot! Best of both worlds if you ask me. What are your go-to multi-functional pieces?

Traveling the USA

27 Jun

In the 2 weeks following my own graduation, I went home to Austin for my cousin’s graduation from UT, flew to Scottsdale for a wedding, then drove to L.A. for a few days before spending a weekend in New York before leaving the country. Here are just a few of the photos from my jet-setting :)

Saying goodbye to the best four years of my life was definitely bittersweet but I’m excited for the next adventures to come.  Happy hump day everyone!

OOTD: Feeling (lime) Green

23 Jun

As I showcased yesterday, here’s what I wore to my end of year sorority banquet. I love this outfit because it’s a great staple for almost any occasion and easy to pack.

I wore a lime green one shoulder dress (similar, $38), Express statement necklace ($30), and Enzo Anglioni gold glitter heels ($120).

It’s Sunday back in the States which means weekend, but here in Israel it’s a work day, so I’m headed to the office. Hope y’all are enjoying the day off still :)

Senior Week + Sorority Formal (Catching Up!)

22 Jun

So sorry for the radio silence folks… I was a bit preoccupied graduating from college and moving to Tel Aviv, Israel!!! I thought I’d start updating y’all with  a few pictures here and there, then get back to the more regular fashion things I’ve been saving up to share :)

In my sorority we have a tradition of the last week of school before finals being senior week. It’s officially the best week ever and you spend every day doing something different, enjoying spending your remaining time with sisters and a last round of hurrahs with your pledge class. We had senior will downs, shrine reveal, some crazy themed happy hours, end of year banquet and superlatives, and of course, Black Diamond Ball!

Most of my pledge class in our craziest date dash outfits outside of our favorite bar in Tucson :)

My little presented me with my senior superlative of Most Likely To Run Hollywood!
