I’m just a few days away from being finished with my Junior year of college! Everyone is starting to move out of their dorms and finals are coming to an end. I was planning on taking down some things in my room when I realized how much I loved how it was decorated! Sometimes it can be difficult to make your dorm feel “homey” and comfortable, but throughout the years I have definitely learned how to do that. This is by far my favorite layout I’ve had compared to previous set ups in other dorms. You learn to take advantage of the space you have – even if it’s not a lot 🙂 Especially if you are an incoming Freshman, it’s good to learn that you can still make your room super cute without spending a lot! My favorite go-to place for just about everything is Target – And I didn’t realize this until I came to college. Target is literally a god sent. Almost everything in my dorm is from Target. I’m really big on the little details. I love stacking books to make a cute arrangement along with picture frames and cute little trinkets – every detail counts!

I flew home to Maine for the 4th of July, and although it was a short 5 day trip, sometimes that is all the time you need. It was great spending the day on the lake with the family, eating delicious Maine lobster and jamming to country music at the lake house. When I think of a perfect day – this is exactly what I envision. For that 5 days I didn’t have to worry about being on time to work, or waking up at a specific time, it was awesome. One of these days I spent the entire day at the beach in Bar Harbor, Maine with my best friend – We then grabbed lunch and did some shopping at the cutest shops, I always feel like a tourist going there because I don’t get down there enough and I’m always so excited. I don’t mind that feeling at all.

Some days I fail to realize how blessed I am – but a weekend at home never fails to make me realize how amazing the people in my life are!

Also – This white sweater I wore on the beach was $10 at H&M, perfect and light weight for a beach day over a bikini! On the 4th I wore my favorite Lilly dress that I always love to throw on.
