First outfit post coming at ya from back in the States!! Also, I will never not be able to stop saying the States, instead of America. Europe changed me. I also can’t stand saying soccer anymore. It’s football to me now. And toilet, not bathroom. Life changing things you guys.
Anyway, today I’m sharing a nice little office outfit! I bought this striped skirt specifically to wear for my summer internship. I saw it at Monki (a European chain) and thought about it for a whole month before going back and buying it the literal day before I left Scotland. It’s just ultimate grown-up vibes ya know?
The skirt reminds me of that old Disney Channel movie My Date with the President’s Daughter, too. No idea why though because I’m pretty sure she never wears anything like this in the whole movie.
I was also wearing red lipstick, but it got all messed up at lunch because I caved and ordered a veggie burger. It was worth it though. Oh, and did anyone else know that cleansing water is literally the ultimate secret to removing red lipstick without looking like the Joker? I was shook. And I never say that.
I wish there was a cool way to say happy June. Kinda like the, “it’s gonna be May” thing? Oh well, I guess that intro will just have to do.
June’s mood board is a little less cohesive than my past ones (see March, April, May), but I don’t think there could be anything more accurate about how I want my June to play out.
I honestly just started with the photo of the pink drink and worked around that to create this montage of how I visually want my month to play out. So the colors of this month weren’t all that intentional, but after looking up their meanings, I found they have a lot more to do with what I want to get out of June than I thought they would.
When I first thought about creating this mood board I thought it was going to be mostly stuff with me being a “girl boss” to help with me starting my very first (and dream!!!) internship this Monday. But I realized that while yeah I would be working 45 hour weeks, I didn’t want my whole summer to just be work like it was last summer. So instead, I focused on things I wanted to do this month.
Because of this, I don’t really have intentions like I usually share in my other mood board posts. Instead, this one is more of just a pure bucket list – which I guess does draw a similarity to last month’s mood board. Actually bucket list isn’t the right word, because these aren’t things I want to do only once, more so things I loved and missed while I was abroad and can’t wait to implement into my life again. But I don’t think there’s a word for that so we’ll just stick with bucket list for now. Read more…
Happy May! Also, know as my last month in Europe. I kid you not as of the day I am posting this, I only have 27 days left here in Scotland. This is insane to me since I was just wishing I could go home already but I also feel like I just got my passport to come here.
I struggled so hard with putting together this mood board. I had no idea what colors I wanted to use, so I focused more so on feelings, things, and places and luckily it all worked together.
The one word that kept popping up while I was making this was passion. I have less than a month left here abroad. Less than a month before I have to go back to normal life. Less than a month before I have to leave my new friends behind. Less than a month before I have to say goodbye to a whole continent for at least a few years. (I hope to come back one day!!)
My intentions for May are to really live life to the fullest, do everything with passion, make memories I’ll never forget, and be brave.
