Twenty Three

Happy Birthday to ME! It’s hard to believe how much has changed since my last birthday, but boy, did the year fly by! I’m so excited to spend time with my three very best friends this weekend! Ellen, Johanna, and Sara are all in town to visit me! I could not be more thrilled. They got in late Wednesday night and will be here until Monday morning. And then the NYFW madness begins! Talk about a few fun-filled weeks! 🙂

I’ve really been nodding towards the orange & blue lately, huh? (Outfits here, and here.) What can I say? I miss college and I am ready for football season!

PS – CHECK IT OUT! My parents and grandparents surprised me with THE PANTS!

Now your next mission is to find something to wear with your new JCrew pants to see your idol Rachel Zoe at #Luckyfabb during NY Fashion Week.
