Monteau dress | A’gaci wedges
I promise I haven’t been ignoring you — lots has been going on.
There have been very few moments where I can sit down and write something that doesn’t read like complete garbage. Every day of this summer has been one of those days where events unfold so quickly that I can barely wrap my head around them, like the kind where yesterday feels like a week ago because so much has happened since then.
So. Grab some coffee or an enjoyable snack, and let me tell you what I’ve been up to since I last really posted.
Lilly Pulitzer Antonia Dress in Fiesta Pink
Do you ever see little kids in the street with legitimately cute outfits on, and think wow, I’d actually wear that?
I’ve expressed that particular statement out loud an embarrassingly large amount of times (apologies if you were the person I was with at the time), and I feel like the adult clothing gods have finally answered my prayers with this particular dress. That bow absolutely kills me. I may also have it in two different colors and patterns …
A few days ago I visited URBN’s East Coast distribution center with a few other interns.
Located in Gap, Pennsylvania, this center handles both store and direct-to-consumer merchandise. I learned a lot about how product is received, ticketed, handled, and shipped at URBN. I also got to see Terrain, URBN’s plant-nursery-slash-café.
Have you ever walked around the Home section of Urban Outfitters and wondered how all of that furniture came to be?
Cameron is the Urban Outfitters Home Design intern. We talked about the design process from spec to finalization, the projects she’s worked on thus far, and the importance of authenticity in the workplace.
Hollister dress (altered by me) | Old Navy flip flops
I’ve finally gotten to participate in the ultimate bougie tradition known as brunch.
It’s totally as good as everyone told me it would be: dressing up, breakfast food, fun conversation, the slightly hazy feeling walking around afterwards … I highly recommend. Ironically I wore another old dress from Hollister to this event. At least I look the part now?
J. Crew dress
“Out on the sea, we’d be forgiven … wouldn’t you like to know how far you’ve got left to go?”
Behind every great app interface is a great designer.
Natalie is a UX/UI Design intern for Urban Outfitters. Her team creates the visual part of the apps that my team implements in code (I’ve actually done this a few times, so it was really cool to see the Urban app from an artist’s perspective). We talked about how much work actually goes into those advertising emails that appear in your inbox, Intern Interview Day, and how a creative project can make your intern application shine.
Lilly Pulitzer skort romper | Old Navy flip flops
Ever since Lilly Pulitzer came out with this romper-that-looks-like-a-too-short-dress, I’ve seen at least one yuppie girl wear it each Fourth of July.
This Fourth, that yuppie girl is me.
Abercrombie swing dress | A’Gaci heels
Content warning: This post discusses death and is probably one of the darkest things I’ve posted, but that’s why you have pretty pictures to balance it out, right?
I think a lot about being old.
When (if?) I’m so old that my body is stuck in life support mode while my mind wanders, will I remember my twenties? Will I regret them? If I could go back, would I change things? How so?
