This little halter top dress is one of my new favorites. It’s so light and comfortable and makes me feel like I’m on a tropical vacation even though I’m landlocked in central Pennsylvania. It’s pretty casual, but I dressed it up with my new favorite heels. I don’t wear high heels often (self preservation—I got my heel caught in a grate in NYC one too many times) so I had to buy a new pair for my graduation ceremony in May. I walked all over the city in these and they didn’t give me blisters or hurt my feet at all, even though I hadn’t broken them in. A+ would recommend. 👏🏻
Dress: Forever 21 (the exact style is sold out online but I linked a similar style and print) // Shoes: DSW (also available in nude and honestly you probably need both!)
I’m very excited about this outfit because I’ve had my eye on this coat since November. November! I tried it on in Forever 21 when I was Black Friday shopping and loved it–and even got my little brother’s approval (those of you who have brothers know how difficult it is to get them interested in your fashion choices). It wasn’t on sale and I needed a heavier winter coat, so I passed. But I kept thinking of it for months, and finally bought it a few weeks ago. It’s very versatile, and light enough (both the material and the color) that it will still be season-appropriate in the spring.

I have three final papers I should be writing now, but I’m taking a quick break to present you with something more important—my new favorite sweater. Yes, these papers will determine whether or not I graduate and never have to take another class again after this Monday, but just look at the little clouds on this sweater.
If you’ve been reading my blog or following me on Instagram, you know I really love clouds, and you may have heard me complain that most cloud print clothes are made for babies. So when I saw this cloud print sweater from Press Fashions, I got really excited. I ordered it immediately and tracked the package obsessively online.
When I put this outfit together, I prepared myself for all the compliments I’d get on the sweater, but everyone was really crazy for the boots. I bought them a few years ago (I think at Marshall’s) and they’re still in pretty good shape considering they were like $30. But hey, eyes up here on the sweater!
To anyone else suffering through finals and procrastinating on papers, I wish you the best of luck! Get lots of sleep, take a warm bath, stay hydrated, and remember there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Happy studying!

I had the best time at my last spring formal a few weeks ago. Despite tripping over a loose floorboard in my high heels and falling flat on my face moments after this picture, I managed to dance the night away and have a great time (at least I didn’t fall at formal, right?).
My favorite part of formal is always spending time with my friends. Yes, I see most of them every day, but there’s something exciting about getting all dressed up and partying together. The fact that this was our last formal together just made it better.
