August: you came and you went. I have to say it was one of my favorite months this summer! Not only did my hottie Irish boyfriend come back to the states (yay), but I got to travel and meet amazing people! As you know, my oldest brother had his white coat ceremony at Columbia in NYC, not a big deal or anything…while spending a few days in the city to celebrate one of the coolest brothers out there, I also had the opportunity to meet the ladies from my two internships! I enjoyed chatting with the CollegeFashionista team and learning more about the amazing company that I have gotten to be a part of this summer. I also met the founder of a chic, sophisticated and high-end jewelry company, AUrate. Both internships have been game-changers and I have learned so much. I obviously love being surrounded by fashion and to be able to combine that with marketing and writing and photography was icing on the cake. Comment and tell me what your favorite th
ing about August was? I guess it’s time to say goodbye to snow cones and suntan lotion and hello to layers…but not quite yet 🙂
Clothing + Accessories
Brandy Melville Dress– This classic black and white striped dress was featured in m
y Back To School Look Book as well on my blog on CollegeFashoinista! I got it while in New York City at the beginning of the month. If I could get away with wearing it everyday…I would.
Aritzia Black Dress– I have been head over heels in love with this adorable shop I discovered in NYC for years! I finally made my first purchase and got a basic black cami dress. I love how easy it is to dress up or down and couldn’t say no since it is such a staple piece.
MANGO Gladiators– I’m the girl who said I would never purchase gladiator sandals, but Mango’s black, white and silver snakeskin beauties changed that! I picked them up while shopping in Ireland! *Not found on website*
Pink RayBans– They are pink…that should explain why I’m obsessed. I have had so much fun pairing them with different looks this month and can’t wait to transition them into the upcoming seasons.
Steve Madden Wedges– I blame cmcoving…but thank her at the same time. These babies are gorgeous and by far my favorite wedges!
Neutrogena Face wash and Lotion– If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I had the chance to take
part in the CollegeFashionista Neutrogena + Clean And Clear partnership! I have used these brands for YEARS! I was so cool to be able to help promote two brands that I love! Here are two of my favorite products, and one that I have used for forever. It never disappoints!
Matchmaster MAC Foundation– I’ve gone back and forth trying to find different higher end foundations but I always go back to my Mac! I love the flawless coverage and it lasts all day and night.
White Water Rafting– As a treat to my boyfriend for our one year anniversary (six months ago) I took him on an all day white water rafting trip in West Virginia! Not only
are the owners and staff the sweetest and coolest people you will come across, they make the experience amazing and a day to remember. I will have the site linked so if you are ever in the area, check it out! It was my third time rafting and we had such a fun time. (I was only sore for two days after)
Young and Hungry- I found this show on Netflix and instantly was addicted. It is one of those shows that makes you laugh out loud and its based in San Fran which is my love. It’s also cool to see Emily Osment star in the show after remembering watching her years ago!
Coffee Ice-cream- This is always one of my favorites, but this month I purchased a container of Haagen-Dazs and the obsession continued.
Chicken Parmasean- Thanks to my Nana, I have mastered the Chicken Parm…ask my boyfriend.
Another monthly favorites down! Just because my senior year is starting, doesn’t mean I will let the upcoming months pass me by. Sure my favorites may be surrounded by studying outfits or new coffee shops to write essays in, but I can’t wait to see what this school year has in store for me. Xo, Catie Beth
