work + study essentials

study essentials edit

Most of my time this year is spent in the journalism building, at my magazine internship or, when I’m lucky, grabbing coffee and doing off-campus work downtown. My look for work-filled evenings and study dates usually pairs casual with feminine touches–the best of both worlds. Shop my favorite picks below!

easy DIY decor

I’m back at St. Mike’s! Junior year has officially begun, and before getting too swamped with work, I decided to actually take the time to do a few of the DIY projects I’ve pinned on Pinterest

The colorful printed paper flags are strung on pink ombre yarn and hung around my entire room. I used a $5 book of scrapbooking paper from Walmart to cut the triangle shaped flags from.

In addition to adding decor just for the sake of covering the walls, I decided to make a few of the pieces functional as well. The sunglasses frame (above) and jewelry hooks (below) are a great way to show off your favorite accessories, keep them organized, and also add some flair to the wall!

Above: picture frame and copper wire from Walmart – $15 total

(FYI – I used duct tape to attach the copper wire to the back of the frame. Simple and cheap!)

Command hooks are a life saver in college. When I saw these clear-backed metal hooks, I knew they would be perfect for displaying my favorite necklaces.
