I have been in Vermont for the past month and a half working as a camp counselor at a girls sleep away camp (hence the lack of posts and increasingly green Instagram photos). This is my ninth summer at camp, the same camp where I have been a camper, where I trained to be a leader, and where I have been able to lead my own cabin for the last three summers. Although I love the opportunity to unplug each summer and spend my days beneath pine trees and on the shores of Lake Champlain, being among such strong women has been the most incredible part of going to camp each year.… View Post

I have very intense opinions about certain shoes, but over the past two years I have completely changed my mind about my feelings towards different kinds of shoes. I used to cringe at the thought of Birkenstocks, but now I have two pairs and wear them almost every day. Up until a few weeks ago, I thought Chacos were the ugliest shoes in the entire world. Now I am deciding between two different styles to buy. And for as long as I can remember, I’ve hated mules. Even when they became super popular among bloggers, I continued to hate them. I hated them up until the very moment I tried them on and decided to buy these mules. Sure, they aren’t the cutest or most flattering shoes in the world, but they are SO comfortable. The one pair of shoes that I haven’t changed my mind on? Kitten heels. I still really hate those.… View Post

A little over a month ago I found myself in a real pickle – I needed a nice-ish dress for a sorority formal, but I also had a ridiculous sunburn that was beginning to peel and desperately needed to be covered up. I also got it in my head that I wanted to wear a red dress, and I needed it fast, so I went right to Poshmark (as I often do). This dress was originally listed for $26 on Poshmark, but through using the offer button I got the price down to $17! Read more to hear some tips about making offers on Poshmark.… View Post

I’m back with the second post in my series AC(TEE)VISM – tee shirts with a cause! The first post focused on Reformation’s Action Tees, which featured funny sayings, cool graphics, and supported causes like Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and the Environmental Defense Fund. Each shirt was $50, but $30 from each shirt was donated to one of those causes. As much as I love Reformation and love their Action Tees, I was not down to spend $50 on a tee shirt. Everlane’s 100% Human collection still supports great causes in a stylish way, but at a much lower price point.

I’ve had my polaroid for a few years now, but I really didn’t use it much until I got to college. It comes with me to camp each summer, and it survived my road trip to New Mexico, but I’ve always struggled finding a bag for it to fit in. So it’s safe to say I just about died when I saw that Urban Outfitters sells cute bags specifically meant to hold polaroid cameras. Read more about my polaroid bag, my thrifted jacket and dress, and my new favorite pins… View Post
