First Day of Class Outfit

B2S outfit

Tomorrow marks the first day of my college adventure and to say I'm nervous would be an understatement! I'm extremely anxious but super excited to see what my time at my university has in store for me! While you're reading this, I'm most likely either packing or having a panic attack (#nobigdeal) and besides getting everything for my dorm, packing my clothes has been surprisingly hard. I'm going 'south' but from experience, Virginia's weather isn't much different than what we get here in Pennsylvania! 

Having worn a uniform for the past 13 years makes the idea of total freedom of dress both exciting and daunting. I actually loved having a uniform because it made mornings easier and took away the stress of having to choose and outfit everyday! But, I don't have that luxury anymore! So here's what I'm thinking of wearing on the first day of class! It's simple, comfortable, and cute!

Instagram Lately

Hi  guys! Today's post is going to be short and sweet because it has been a hectic couple of days and this week is just going to get busier...helllooo college!! Hopefully I can get more posts up this week but you can still follow along my college move-in process on Instagram and Snapchat - @belleadore 
Quick smoothie stop at Liquiteria in NYC... if you ever go get the 'berry powerful'! I also tried a tiny 'shot' that had tons of health benefits (I forget what was in it) and it was actually pretty good!

Last week was crazy busy with working, babysitting (10 hours straight..), and packing for college so I spent the night (a few actually) watching Netflix in bed (has anyone seen 'Grand Hotel'? I'm obsessed!). Also absolutely love these super fun socks! They're made of all organic materials and are honestly the softest ones I own! Visit their site to see the rest of their cool designs!

I lost count of how many times I've been here this such thing as too much gelato right?

Back to School Checklist

Hi everyone! So today's post is one that I'm super excited about because 1) I've always loved back to school shopping and 2) this year I'm heading off to college! The checklist I made is tailored a little more towards someone who's going to be living in a dorm but a few of these things can definitely be 'must-haves' for high school girls too! 

I started dorm shopping in the middle of July and I've been slowly but surely being checking off the things I need for move in day! I wanted to get my bedding right because I know that it's one of the few ways to decorate the dorm and after buying a returning my first pick I settled for the cutest navy and white bedding from West Elm. Unfortunately I can't find it on the website but this Pottery Barn one is so cute too!! On that note, decorative pillows are another way to bring color into your room...I mean that 'but first, coffee' pillow basically describes my life. My dad got me this mini Keurig machine and I'm so so so excited to use it, especially when your mug is as cute as this one! I definitely planning on printing the couple of prints and canvases I have hanging in my room now.. but I found this map of Richmond print and almost died! (I'll be attending the University of Richmond for those of you who didn't now!) And of course what would school be without a backpack, school supplies, and the perfect planner? 

When I first started making my college packing list I was so shocked by how much I would actually need to bring! Sometimes the littles things slip your mind!  I'm planning on making another college post so if there's any college girls out there please comment what your must have dorm items are!!

Casual Boyfriend Jeans

Jeans/ Top(old) similar(1, 2) / Tote/ Sunglasses / Sandals  

If there's one look that I will probably never get tired of, it would have to be jeans and a white tee. It's such a simple but refined look that it could work on so many levels!

I've always loved the look of boyfriend jeans but it wasn't until recently that I tried on a pair and actually liked how they looked on me...these ones are from Zara but I don't think they're available anymore (I'll link a similar pair). This white top has also been on repeat this summer and I love how light and soft it is. It's the slightest bit a crop top but not so much that my whole stomach is exposed! Of course I had to wear my absolute favorite pair of sunglasses, the perfect tote, and my favorite striped espadrilles.
