Opa!

I am quite literally jumping for joy right now. My visa has arrived and everything is official--I am studying abroad this fall. I fly on the 22nd (so soon!)...to Greece! Ah yes, this is going to be good.
In regards to that, I'm not certain what will become of the blog. I will continue blogging, but will probably be more erratic, especially during the first few weeks. In addition, the subject matter might switch to more of a focus on what I'm seeing and doing rather than fashion in general.
This is what I hope to be seeing. Pictures from here.
Now, I'm going to go make some celebratory tzatziki and practice packing light...
Outfit details: shirt- Banana Republic Outlet, vest- Forever 21, skirt- Forever 21, bag- secondhand, shoes- Urban Outfitters

Greece!? How exciting! I'm jealous. Greece is on my "To visit someday" list.

Funny coincidence, I nearly wore that skirt today, but decided to wear it tomorrow instead.

that is so awesome...greece is so beautiful.. becareful of "klefti's" (sp.) who overcharge in taxis... and if you visit the santorini (which it seems you must!!) there is an off-the road restaurant called "mama loves you babies" owned by a swedish-british greek in fira(thira) that is amazing! bring lots of linen and a floppy hat (for sun protection!) so jealous...and hope you continue blogging from greece.
