Winter in Illinois

Just left Chicago’s -4 degree weather and I’m back in Maine where it is high 30’s! It feels so warm here. I have almost a full month off until classes start back up again, which made it super hard but I tried to pack as light as possible..But of course I wanted every pair of boots..

This blanket scarf is everything – so cozy and so many ways to style it. I also literally live in my hunter boots this time of year, I don’t know what I’d do without them.

Lately I’ve come across some of the cutest boutiques and new brands that I am just OBSESSED with. I’ve seen a lot of my favorite fashion bloggers wearing these brands and trying out these products, so of course they’re on my wish list as of right now 🙂 I go back to school on the 23rd of this month, so I am just craving some new dresses for formals, clothes and shoes for fall, and new beauty products to try – but I’m trying to get better on my spending, hence why it is called a “wish list!” I recently watched Emily Gemma’s Make Up Routine Video and wanted to try some new make up products!

 

Home sweet home 


Obsessed with my new white off the shoulder shirt from Francesca’s – it was on sale for only $15, so it was practically a steal. I wore it with a pair of my favorite Lilly shorts and of course the mint green Tory Burch tote to match 🙂 For the past few days I’ve been working at the job I used to work at back home for the past 5 years, I picked up two shifts because I missed it and my best friends work there. So of course we took some pictures with Maine lobster! Today I spent some of the day taking photos at my Aunts lake house before work. This is one of my favorite spots back home. It’s so great to be home with my best friends and my family, the days are already going by way too quickly though!

Maine bound 


After working my internship for two months, babysitting and working at the boutique, I finally get 9 days off and get to head back home! Let my 9 days of summer begin ☀️ More of my Maine adventures coming soon 🙂
