Today I turned 23 and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it yet. It’s my first birthday out of college and the only thing I can think is “no one likes you when you’re 23” (look up the blink-182 song if you’re confused). But, in honor of another year passed I thought I would share 9 things about me and 9 of my favorite things—the items I reach for weekly if not daily!

But first, quick chat about my outfit. I absolutely adore sweater dresses, but for some reason I find it so hard to find good ones. This is a great one. If you’re petite I think this hits at the perfect length (I’m wearing an xs), the turtleneck is cute but not stifling, and the quality is amazing! Paired with my new knee-high black boots and it’s an easy, but put together outfit. I definitely think a cute headband would be a great way to accessorize and dress it up some more! But now, on to my 9 things.

9 Things About Me

  1. I graduated in May from Elon University.
  2. I was in a sorority there (Alpha Omicron Pi!).
  3. I’m obsessed with all things French, especially Parisian.
  4. I studied abroad in London for four months and now it’s one of my absolute favorite places.
  5. I love to dance (I danced from kindergarten through senior year of high school).
  6. My favorite hobby (aside from blogging) is reading (one of my majors in college was English literature).
  7. My favorite color is pink, although I hardly wear it.
  8. I’m a complete jetsetter—I’ve been to Europe 5 times and visited more cities and I hardly ever get home sick. Even when studying abroad, I cried on the plane home.
  9. My two biggest passions are writing and fashion—which is what made The Dainty Details a reality!

9 Favorite Things

These are the items that have either been given to me or I’ve bought for myself that I fall back on year after year. Caveat: the Gucci bag and Madewell jeans are new to me this year, but they are classics that I know I’ll love for years to come.

  1. Spanx leggings
  2. Gucci bag
  3. MAC Creme D’Nude lipstick
  4. Michael Kors smart watch
  5. Barefoot Dreams blanket
  6. Madewell jeans
  7. Tory Burch sandals
  8. Josie Maran argan oil
