Back To BU

This weekend I headed back to Boston University for the first time since graduation! Although it was a short trip it was the perfect amount of time to feel nostalgic without getting too depressed. Of course I took this opportunity to dress in my finest college prepster style.

We took a bus from NYC to Boston on early Friday morning so I wanted to be comfortable but not look too sloppy once we arrived in Boston. Jeans will always be my go to for traveling. Although leggings might be the obvious choice, I alway find that I’m kicking myself once I get there because I want to start exploring ASAP.

In true New England style, I layered it up with a chambray shirt and my favorite BU sweatshirt because Boston was SO much colder than New York! I forgot this small detail and packed dresses for the rest of the week #fail.

There are some ensembles that you will never grow out of and I definitely think this is one of them. I might just be saying this because I’m a brand new alumni but I think I’ll be sporting this sweatshirt for a long time. It’s funny how in college I hardly ever wanted to wear BU apparel and now I’m super proud to do so. I think this may be a sign of me getting old!

Back To BU

 

Visiting Boston came with a whole slue of emotions. In a way I felt like a stranger in my own home. As I walked through campus with my sorority sisters I wondered why I ever left one of the most beautiful places in the country to move to smelly New York. Although I know that I wouldn’t have half of the opportunities that I do in NYC, it was hard to say goodbye to the crisp fall air and the smell of the Boston harbor.

    Love this outfit! The chambray shirt goes perfectly underneath the red sweatshirt. I can’t believe that I’ll be in your shoes next year. I don’t want to graduate!
