FRIDAY FIVE 11/2/18

Happy November! Today officially marks 6 weeks left in this semester, including Thanksgiving, so that means it's crunch time!

CARRY-ON PACKING TIPS

Jacket | Urban top | Lululemon leggings | Vans | Madewell Tote | Suitcase

This past weekend I had an amazing 3 day trip to Illinois to visit family and I packed for the entire weekend in just a carry-on and had plenty of room and was able to bring home a few things that I picked up while shopping. My suitcase is always very organized, because that's easiest for me to navigate it throughout my trip, so this got me thinking that I should share my best packing tips for a carry-on suitcase! I also brought my Madewell transport tote as my personal item and I will be sharing what I keep in there as well.
Here is my completely packed carry-on suitcase. The suitcase I use the brand Samsonite and is carry-on size.

SEPTEMBER 2018 WISH LIST

Happy Monday! Pretty much every month I share my wish list of pieces that I seriously want in my wardrobe every month. So, today I am sharing my September wish list. There are so many good pieces that I have been wanting so much on this wish list! I have been doing way too much shopping this past month, so it's surprising that I really even have so many things on this list lol! Hopefully I will be able to grab a few of these things in the next month, however, I am *trying* to go on a spending hideous until my trip to Chicago in October, however I may make an exception for a few of these items!

After I was done creating this collage I quickly realized that I really didn't branch out in color, at all! I love a neutral color palette, everything goes together so easily and all of your clothes are able to mix and match. So, here is my neutral September wish list!
