#SCODUCKS

As a graduate of the University of Oregon,

I am a huge fan of the Ducks.

I never really liked sports, until I got to College.

And with Game Day finally here, I can’t help but wish I was going to be back in this place:

Fridays Fancies #7

I’m linking up with {av} for Friday’s Fancies again.

AND today is my 23rd birthday!!

The theme this week is Back to School,

and while this is the first time I haven’t gone back to school in 20 years,

I pulled together a look I would kill to own.

[seriously though, I want a Barbour jacket like nobody’s business]

Banana Republic x Issa

I’m kind of obsessed with Kate Middleton.

Not in a creepy way, just in a I want to own all of her clothes way.

Banana Republic teamed up with Issa, a brand made very public by Kate.

Her famous engagement dress was made by Issa.

Here’s what I’m loving from the collection:

Image

Purple Version of the engagement dress

[the blue is already sold out!]

Image

This envelope clutch is adorable!

Image

This animal print scarf is great! I love the color scheme!

The whole collection is great, I wouldn’t mind having it all magically appear in my closet…

It’s crazy, the collection only opened last week, and it’s already selling out of many products! Run to a store near you to pick up the collection!

Wedding Number 1

The wedding my family went to in Philadelphia was actually the second wedding we had been to this summer.

Another one of my cousins, same side of the family got married in a little town called Keizer in Oregon.

The weekend after my graduation, I met my parents up there for a weekend of family.

I also REALLY like this bangle watch, however, my wrist is TINY, and it slips right off!

This Michael Kors one is gorgeous also!

This Michael Kors would be perfect for fall!

New York City

After my family went to Philadelphia, we hopped on a train and went to New York City!

The last time I had been in New York was the second grade, so I was VERY excited!

My mom’s friend who we were staying with lives just off Madison on the UES, so it was PRIME location.

My mom and I also went out to the Hamptons with her friend, which was AMAZING. I loved it!

Here’s a few photos of what we did!

Philadelphia

My family and I recently went on a trip to Philadelphia for my cousin’s wedding.

After the HORRIBLE journey

[we arrived 25 hours after plan A and 7 1/2 after plan B]

But the wedding was really fun, and we had a great time exploring downtown Philly on Independence Day!
