Back to School

by Jessica Sturdy on April 30, 2012

A few friends and I went down to Champaign this past weekend to re-live our college years. I’ve always been told that it’s harder to bounce back after a night out as you get older. Don’t worry guys, I tested out this rumor and let me save you a hangover… it’s true. I had such a great time catching up with all of my younger friends who are still in school so the Sunday Suffering was worth it!

Blazer: Silence + Noise // Chambray Shirt: Madewell // Jeans: Citizens // Necklace: H&M // Watch: Marc By Marc Jacobs // Bracelet & Ring: Nordstrom (old) // Leopard Flats: J.Crew (old, but here’s a similar style) // Bag: J.Crew

Ellen (one of my besties) started Compete for a Cure two years ago. Compete for a Cure is an annual campus-wide basketball & volleyball tournament that benefits the American Lung Association and the Pam Stern Legacy of Hope Fund. A whopping $17,000 was raised within the first two years. Take a guess how much was raised yesterday…. $27,000! So unbelievably amazing! Below is a picture of our volleyball team… I’m so happy we were all able to come back to Champaign to participate in such a great event.

PS – Shout out to the girls that came up to me and complimented Bows & Sequins this weekend! You made my weekend! :)

Gorgeous necklace! And I just visited some friends two weekends ago and yes… it took me through Wednesday to recover from the weekend of hanging out with some younger friends still living the college life! Glad to know I’m not the only one 😉 Love the picture of you and your friends, super cute!
