My Last Few Days as a High School Senior!!!


Hey everyone, happy July!! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. This summer is a really exciting summer for me because it’s my chance to transition from high school to (gulp) college. I graduated a week ago and I already can’t believe how fast the time is flying. To start off this summer, I’m going to share some of the details of my last few days as a high school senior with you all!!

Thursday, June 25: Senior Prom

Thursday was the day that started it all. Senior prom is the day that everyone spends their high school years dreaming about. It’s the things that (high school) fairy tales are made of. But no one ever tells you how much work it takes!! I was out the door by 10 AM to get my nails done, grabbed a quick coffee and lunch (to go!) with Torie, ran to my hair and makeup appointments at an Ulta store twenty minutes from my house and got home with barely enough time to get ready before my family was supposed to come take pictures with me. And I was still three hours off from the beginning of prom!!  To spare all the grueling details, I went to pre-prom at my friend’s house (where three of my amazing friends surprised me with a stunning corsage!!!) and then at school, where we climbed onto a super cool party bus that fit 29 of us! The half hour limo ride to Floral Terrace, where prom actually took place, was great, the cocktail hours was nice and the real party was incredible! I can honestly say that it was one of the best nights of my life. I danced all night, took great pictures with my friends, enjoyed delicious food and just got to reminisce about my four years in high school. Looking back at it now, I can’t even believe how quickly it all passed! Shout out to all the incredibly people who made this night possible!! Check the end of the article for details on what I wore!!

Friday, June 26: Afterprom

When prom was over, we took the party bus back to Arianna’s house and stayed for the night. We ate yummy mozzarella sticks and pizza bagels, laughed and danced… And didn’t get to sleep until the early hours of the morning!! In the afternoon, we took a ferry to Fire Island, where we spent the day lounging on the beach and going swimming (the water was freezing!!) We grabbed dinner and ice cream, and while most of the crew grabbed a late night ferry back to “the mainland,” four of us stayed overnight in a borrowed house! Back at the house, we chilled out on the back porch and ate late night mac and cheese. It may have been a long day, but it was incredibly fun and enjoyable!

Deliriously happy after prom!!

Saturday, June 27: Return from Fire Island

Saturday was by far the most relaxed day of this particular weekend. The four of us who stayed over in Fire Island woke up at 8, ate mac and cheese for breakfast, cleaned the house and then took a nap. No pressure, no tight schedule. We grabbed pizza and ice cream and caught a ferry back to Long Island. That night, Torie and Emily came back to my house to finish decorating our caps for graduation the next day. Even though they were at my house until midnight, I was glad they came by to keep me company.

Sunday, June 28: Graduation!!

Sunday was THE day… the end of four incredible years of high school, the end of the memories. But it was also the beginning of a new stage in my life, a stage that I am so excited for! It was such a bittersweet day, complete with caps, gowns, selfies, laughter and tears. It all went by in a flash, it was honestly so hard to believe. The only thing that ruined the day was the it was nearly impossible to hear the speeches, which I had really been looking forward to hearing, from the stage. All in all, it was incredibly fulfilling day, knowing that I successfully finished my high school career and have so many awesome opportunities and events ahead of me. I really am so proud of myself for doing as well as I did and doing the different activities that I did, and I am so grateful to everyone who got me there. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for me as I go on to college at Stony Brook University!!

Fall Fashion: 10 Pieces I’m Adding to My Wardrobe


1. Faux leather moto jacket: When fall comes around, with its brisk mornings and freezing nights, I know it’s time to break out the outerwear. A faux leather moto jacket is just the piece I need to boost my fashion cred. They’re classy and sassy, and can bring an outfit together like nothing else. I usually go for something in black that’s polished and not costumey.

2. Skater skirts: Nothing goes better with cropped sweaters and knee high socks than skater skirts. They can be casual or dressy, patterned or solid. There are so many varieties of these skirts that are perfect for autumn. I try to look for something with a slightly longer length so I can wear it to school!

3. Infinity scarves: Scarves are some of my favorite accessories during the fall season. They keep me warm and still look stylish. I especially love infinity scarves because they’re cozy and lend a bit of texture to my outfit. Plus, there are so many different ways to wear them! Look for a pattern or color that fits in with your wardrobe!

4. Casual dresses: I love wearing dresses to school all year round, but most of my dresses are either too summery or too fancy. So this year, I am on the hunt for some cute casual dresses I can pair with tights just for school or even for a party! Right now, my eyes are wandering towards dark, fall colors and cute patterns!

5. Plaid blouses: Plaid is such a classic pattern for the fall, but this year, I want to give it a more fashion-y look in my wardrobe, so I’m looking for plaid blouses. They’ll look more polished and runway-esque than a plain ol’ button down!

6. Booties with low heels: I loooove booties, but all the pairs that I own are either completely flat or too high for me to be comfortable in in school. This year, I’m on the hunt for cute booties with a one inch heel, which will let me be comfortable and cute! Bonus points if they’ve got trendy cutouts!

7. Plum, eggplant and wine: Plum, eggplant and wine are such rich and classy colors, they’re perfect for fall! It’s easy to find all sorts of pieces in any of these cool, fashion-forward colors, and they’re awesome with florals, stripes and plaids! Look for a piece that fits in with your wardrobe!

8. Blazers: Blazers are a must-have for every single girl out there. They’re polished and stylish, but most importantly, they can even keep you warm. They’re perfect for an internship or interview, even in a bright color or cool print. Blazers are so versatile, and can go from school or work, to a night out! Find a piece that you’re comfortable in and that you can have fun mixing and matching with!

9. Kimonos: Kimonos are so graceful, and can be a great middle layer for the fall. They are fun to wear and are flattering to all body types. Something in dark, fall colors is perfect for the season.

10. Loafers: Loafers are super classy and super cute, not to mention comfortable and easy to rock in school, at an internship, at work or even out on the town. They can say a lot about your personality, and they’re a perfect pair of shoes to wear in the midst of a sea of boots. Look for something that says something special about you.
