That's The Way (Uh-huh Uh-huh) I Like It....

There has been a WHIRLWIND of activity around here lately. From the ECU vs USC game, to loads of homework and fabric labeling, to hours spent in the car driving back and forth between Greenville and would be an understatement to say that I have been busy. But I wanted to share with you a couple of exciting things!
First I wanted to express to ya'll my excitement about CollegeFashionista! (click the cute little picture at the top of the page to get to the website) This Tuesday the first post for my CollegeFashionista internship was uploaded to the site and I am thrilled! During the first week of the internship you're assigned to write a short bio about yourself and post a picture to match. Since it was hurricane-ing outside the weekend that I was planning on taking my picture I had to use one that I already had, but I think it still turned out well! Here's a screenshot of my post...
I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with such a wonderful website! Each week I will be uploading a post featuring the gentlemen of East Carolina University called Let's Hear It For The Boys. I will talk about why their trend is so chic, how their accessories play along with the ensemble, and then give a hint on how you can accomplish their look! I can't wait for my first LHIFTB's post to be up next week! Make sure ya'll keep your eyes peeled for it....
Secondly I want to share with ya'll a little something random...a shoe obsession! I don't think I have ever posted anything about them on here but I have a pair of awesome Nike hightop kicks that I LOVE! They are ideal to wear on rainy days because they're pretty much waterproof and yet not as inconvenient and heavy as rain-boots. How ghetto fabulous do I look in these!? (please disregard how much of a loser I am being in these pictures, I was a tad bored)...
I also had the privilege to write some posts for my amazing friend Leslie's blog, A Blonde Ambition, while she is a busy bee getting ready for her wedding! What she wanted me to do was to pick out some chic ready-to-wear lines for the upcoming season and talk about the trends and what to expect. Today she posted the piece that I wrote about the ACNE collection and I am so ecstatic with how it turned out! She was so sweet to give me this opportunity and was extremely complementary during her post! Ya'll have to go check out her blog HERE , she is AWESOME! 

Sometime later this week I'm going to share with ya'll some pictures that my wonderful friend, and co-photographer, Allison shot to show off her and her friends chic fashion for the 2011-2012 school year. I can't wait for all of you to see them! I hope that you enjoyed my post on this dreary afternoon! What are your favorite items to wear during a rainy day??

keep on keepin on fashionistas
