Boston Campus Style: End of an Era!

Wow! By the time you're reading this, I'll be done living in the dorms forever! Moving off campus is a strange sensation. I'm overjoyed to never have to eat at the dining hall again, but I'll miss having the Boston Common in my backyard! Luckily, I'm not going to be too far away. But still, going for runs with this in the background never really got old:


C'est la vie! Time to start anew with a great friend in a fun new neighborhood. Before that, it's back to my hometown to collect as much money as I can. This outfit will hopefully be one of the last things I buy for myself for a while...I need to reign in that spending until the fall! In the meantime, expect a little more regularity in my posts and look for a lot more recipes and DIY posts this summer...I get pretty crafty when I have enough space to stretch my creative wings :). And on that note, if any of you have links for great DIY tutorials for apartment decorations/furniture, let me know! I'm trying to create as much as I can to make a living space that screams "me!"

On this outfit: Why is it impossible to find high waisted shorts that aren't destroyed denim? I searched high and low and this was the best pair I could get. I was hesitant, but I kind of dig the 90's grunge of it all. I bought this on Saturday to celebrate the completion of my large and scary research paper. It's pretty simple, pretty summer. It was wonderful to go outside and take pictures to enjoy this great weather! I do not miss my big winter coat at all. It's so tragic that this sunny week had to grace Boston during final exams!





Shirt and shorts: Forever 21
Sneakers: Urban Outfitters
Necklace: Vintage hand-me-down

Aren't you in love with this necklace? I get more compliments on it than any other piece of jewelry I own. My grandma had fantastic style.

Pictures are, as per usual, by the talented Z. She's gotten so fabulous at glamour shots, I don't know what I'm going to do without her!


  1. D'aww I do my best you goose! It's you that's got all the twerk!

  2. I swear it's always sunny when I have exams or essays to write!

    I really like denim shorts at the moment too, although it's rarely warm enough at the moment to wear them.

  3. Okay, obviously a bit behind on this, but WHERE did you find those high-waisted shorts?! I love them!

  4. haha no worries! They are from Forever 21. I loved em, but a word to the wise if you do get them...don't put them in the dryer! Mine shrunk up so short I can't wear them anymore :(.

  5. Aww that sucks! :( But thank you for the advise! Maybe I'll see if Kohl's has any in first haha.

  6. Good plan! I've had some luck at TJ Maxx as well.

  7. Thanks! I'll have a look there too! :)
