September starts tomorrow, OMG what? I don't think I realized that September was this week until like 2 days ago. I'm normally used to starting school much earlier than I did, so September definitely crept up on me.
Oh, hi. Yeah, I'm back. And I'm determined to stay. Let me start off with (another) little update. I'm writing to you from sunny California and I'm totally loving it. LMU is such a beautiful school and I have already met so many incredible people. Classes are decent, I wouldn't say amazing just because it is school and I'm not super into learning. But, I am taking a pretty cool yoga class that is currently very difficult, but will hopefully get easier as I get stronger. This is my first week of school so I'm still working on transitioning.
It's so bizarre because I've dreamt of the day that I head off to college and become an "adult" and now that it's hit me it doesn't seem real. I feel like I'm at some extended summer camp. But, it's so fun so far. My roomie is so fab and we have so much in common and our room is super cute; dorm tour to come once we finally finish decorating! My campus is seriously the most beautiful place in the world and I'm reminded of it all throughout the day! I'm still adjusting to the time change a bit (I'm 2 hours behind here), but it's nothing major.
Okay, so this outfit seems perfect for what I feel like a California autumn entails. It's funny because in Chicago when it's summer everyone is constantly wearing shorts and tanks because it gets so hot, but here where it's warm year round you see people wearing pants, shorts, dresses, sweaters, literally whatever they want! Chicago definitely has certain attire that is acceptable for each season, but here it's very laid-back--I mean I guess that's how California people are though.
This dress is a constant go-to for me because it's a beautiful olive hue that totally encompasses fall. I love the cut of it too and the scalloped edge. These shoes are a new favorite of mine too. Although not practical at all for walking around a college campus (RIP to my feet), they're just too cute not to pair with this dress. I wore this outfit to a recent barbecue at my house just before I left for school and it was perfect for a warm summer evening, but I imagine it will be awesome for a cool(ish) fall day too!
