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 thingsâ€”the items I reach for weekly if not daily!
But first, quick chat about my outfit. I absolutelyÂ adoreÂ 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
- I graduated in May from Elon University.
- I was in a sorority there (Alpha Omicron Pi!).
- I’m obsessed with all things French, especially Parisian.
- I studied abroad in London for four months and now it’s one of my absolute favorite places.
- I love to dance (I danced from kindergarten through senior year of high school).
- My favorite hobby (aside from blogging) is reading (one of my majors in college was English literature).
- My favorite color is pink, although I hardly wear it.
- 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.
- My two biggest passions are writing and fashion—which is what made The Dainty Details a reality!
