Fourth of July Threads: Red, Tweed and Blue

Wearing tweed with toes in the sand rather than in pumps. That is the evolution of fabric iconized by Chanel since its genesis in 1924.

Whenever I describe to people why I chose journalism as my major, I say it’s because it’s an introverted-extrovert’s job. I have a love affair with telling stories.

Life’s a Beach!

Going to the beach with friends over spring break is a must! It’s so fun to just take a day to soak up the sun, chase waves, and snap some cute beach pictures! My beautiful friend, Rachel and I had quite the photoshoot by the ocean yesterday! We took many candids and made some pinterest-esqueContinue reading “Life’s a Beach!”
