Queen of Coney Island: Outfit of the Day

Happy Wednesday! Because I am in between the end of school and the beginning of interning (I got an internship doing paralegal work at a small corporation!), I’m finding ways to spend time without actually working. Before my boyfriend leaves for LA to do movie things, we went to Coney Island for some sunshine and funnel cakes. I’ve never done “Outfit of the Day” posts before, mostly because so far I’ve only posted in winter, when my uniform consists of a down coat and barely-salvaged-by-high-heeled Uggs. I bought this coordinate outfit at Necessary Clothing, a local boutique in NY with an online store as well. And no outfit is complete without a sorority tote and a bag of cotton candy. “A Twist of Lime” flip flops are Kate Spade, found at Marshall’s for $20! XO, Julia

Strawberries and Sunshine: Picnic for Four!

       Hello beauties! It is finally warm and sunny out and I am stuck indoors with International Politics textbooks and the lovely essays by Berkley. Thankfully, my lovely Kappa sisters and I made the time for a super chic picnic! For a warm and sparkling picnic, bring fresh fruits, an easy, breakable bread and different jams! We brought madelines, grapes, and Pellegrino! Break out the nautical dresses, hot pink lips, pink accessories, and flowing florals. Also, everyone should go check out my sister Irene’s blog!  http://irene-anna.blogspot.com Back to studying! Xo, Julia

Love you all!! xo, Julia

DIY Fairytale Canopy

Mes lecteurs, A DIY glitter canopy is a really simple way to add glamour to an otherwise dull bedroom. I started out with a mosquito net from Sear’s (they range from $15-25) and pulled back the opening with old clip-on earrings. I found fake flowers ($2 at Michael’s) and sewed them into the mosquito net. I tied ribbons to the base of the net so they would cascade down, adding depth to the colors. I tied a bow (from a Christmas gift basket) and a flower crown on different sides. Really anything goes! Try to reuse gift ribbons, earrings, and fabric. I even took the hem of my golden dress and turned it into a ribbon! I found that it adds a really magical touch to the bedroom. Happy New Year et bonne chance! xo, Julia

Farmhouse Chic: French Cottage Bedroom

I decided to de-clutter and focus in on an exact theme for my bedroom upstate.  I started with clipping Christmas decorations (the sparkly butterflies pictured) onto my chandelier (Ikea). I painted a stool a light blue and added floral details with some craft paint and concentrated all of my crystal trinkets onto one tray. A white basket filled with a pillow and little toys made it look a lot more “quaint” and beautiful lace cloth kept it from looking stark. Cheap flea market crystal and lace are a beautiful way to add a “le midi” touch to any room. (Also, shoutout to my mother for creating the oil paintings pictured). Bonne chance! xo, Julia
