#SayHi To Spring With Old Navy

March 14, 2017

This post is sponsored by Old Navy. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that make Endless May possible!

Happy Spring my friends! As I write this, the weather (unfortunately) isn’t too springy outside. However, I have a feeling spring is right around the corner and, for many of you, is probably already here. I am so excited to share with you a neo-nautical look book for the spring season with Old Navy. I have been an Old Navy fan for forever (last summer I went a few times a week because there was a store on my walk to work!). I think their March looks are so cute and I can’t wait to share with you the fun, bold and stylish pieces that I picked out.

The first outfit I am sharing with you is perfect for a casual spring lunch or date. The top, pants and purse are some of my favorites for the season. This outfit is lightweight and will keep you cool on those warmer spring days–an extra bonus!

The next outfit features the cutest off the shoulder dress. Not only is it SO comfy, but it is the prettiest shade of blue. I definitely plan on wearing this one during Dani’s graduation activities this spring.

Music

I have been an Ed Sheeran fan since before he was famous (#sorrynotsorry). His new album is so much fun to listen to. I absolutely love the song “What Do I Know?”. I definitely have had it on repeat for the last week!

I also have a Spring playlist on Spotify, feel free to follow along!

I have been so grateful for my close friends that have been helping me get through this semester! I have also been doing a lot of photography work lately and have been working on growing my photography business.

Love & Liefs: I’m Back!

February 16, 2017

Dear Sara,

We have switched places–you from Wellesley to the Netherlands and me from the Netherlands to Wellesley! I am SO happy that you are SO happy! I love being able to watch you experience these special moments (and learn from you along the way). Your and Ken’s apartment is so lovely–I loved my little Skype tour.

Let go of fear and do something every day that pushes and inspires you. 💕 how was your Saturday? 😘

It has been almost two months since I have written one of these. I had a great trip with my family and Dani (I will be posting all about it on the blog soon) but alas, it had to come to an end and now I am back at Wellesley. I have a lot of mixed emotions about being back at school. I have absolutely loved seeing my friends, meeting new people who joined the organizations I am in while I was gone, remembering how gorgeous Wellesley is and ending long distance (at least for now) with Dani.

Lake Waban at Wellesley, I missed the gorgeous sunsets a lot.

However, it hasn’t been a cake walk. Wellesley, as you know, can be a difficult place to be (which is probably why it helps us grow so much!). Now, instead of figuring out weekend travel plans, I am trying to keep up with deadlines and still manage to sleep an okay amount each night. Things went from 0 to 100 really fast and I feel like I am drowning a bit. I was sick for the first two weeks of the semester so I fell quite a bit behind with deadlines and blog work. However, every day it gets easier to get into the routine of things.

We had a snow day last week and it was so nice to relax a little bit during the week.

I have been taking A LOT of photos lately and it has been such a blast. I am saving my money for a new lens and I can’t wait because I am taking a lot of senior portraits this year! I am also trying to get more involved on campus by going to more on campus events and taking advantage of everything Wellesley has to offer.

Overall, it is good to be back but I definitely left a piece of my heart in Amsterdam (I guess that is a perfect excuse for me to come visit you 😉 )

Love & Liefs,

Shannon
