Hello hello, and happy Halloween!
Can you believe it’s already the end of October?! My bad, it’s been nearly a month since I’ve posted. I think I needed a break from blogging since, for awhile there, I was just cranking out travel post after travel post for my study abroad program and it got mildly exhausting. I also just got super busy with school and extracurriculars – but more on a life update later.
In between classes, hosting information sessions for club activities, working, getting coffee with professionals, team meetings, I do try to have fun every once in awhile. Every quarter, my sorority hosts a formal dance. For fall quarter, it’s known as the boat formal! Super fancy and fun – it’s definitely my favorite formal every year. This year, I took one of my good friends Jo who I met during my London study abroad program. I always love giving my friends who aren’t involved in Greek life a taste of what it’s like.
My only problem? I barely brought any fancy dresses with me to school this year. I didn’t have time to go shop for a dress beforehand because I was so busy – making the trip to downtown Seattle would have been a hassle. Luckily, I knew a few girls who frequently ordered dresses from Tobi I picked out a dress I normally wouldn’t wear; I’ve never worn body-con dresses until I found this one that makes me feel confident and allowed me to dance the night away.
I love the cut of this dress, especially the geometric lines and shapes. Funnily enough, the hoop earrings I’m wearing are actually ones I bought from London. Y’all, I could probably write a whole post about how hoops are changing my life: they are instant confidence-boosters! I feel like I can conquer the world and accomplish anything in my hoops.
Finally, I was at Nordstrom Rack when I stumbled upon those beautiful Steve Madden Carrson Sandals! I had been wanting a pair for so long and found these rose gold ones for less than $35 – that’s unheard of!! I had to snatch them for formal.
Here’s a few (lower quality) photos from my fun night:
Look out for more posts to come this month – amidst all my busy-ness, I want to stay connected with y’all!
Thanks for reading,
*Thanks Tobi for providing me with the dress in exchange for an honest opinion!*
