Meet me in St. Louie

Howdy y'all! Last week I was able to experience the stuff of legends. Spring Break as a Freshman in college. Now don't jump to conclusions, I'm not talking about parties on the beach with my sorority sisters, but all the same it was a wonderful and much needed break from classes. 

PART 1: Home. when you live over a thousand miles away, going home becomes a rare treat. I was lucky enough to be able to visit my family, help my sister pick out a prom dress, and have an ice skating adventure with a few of my girlfriends. Yes I went ice skating.

PART 2: I had the opportunity to fly to St. Louis to meet my sweet friend Avery. I had never been to St. Louis before and I cannot wait to go back! Avery gave me the short version of a tour of the city and of course we took lots of pictures. 

Anyways, I thought I'd write a little bit about a non-beach spring break and what that looks like in clothes. While I was home I lived in chunky sweaters and boots but things lightened up in Missouri. I wore a light sweater and some new skinnies from ELSE that are to die for. The key to packing for
different climates is layers.
PART 3: Spring Break Part 2 consisted of Avery and I driving 10 hours to Caddo Texas where our friend has a lake house. 10 hours would have been miserable without some solid playlists (can anyone say Moulin Rouge?!) and of course pulling off the freeway for a spontaneous photo shoot in a random field. 

Moral of the story, when you're going to 3 completely different climates over spring break DO NOT OVER PACK. I know that seems impossible, but by packing 2-3 full outfits for each destination I was covered (and my suitcase was at 50 lbs so I didn't have much of a choice). I hope y'all who are on spring break this week have an incredible time and take LOTS of pictures! :)
