Fall at the Ivy

As I believe I mentioned in my last post, my job has me stationed at the University of Pennsylvania (UPENN) through next Monday. For those of you that don't already know, UPENN is an Ivy League school and being here has just blown my mind. Campus culture is so different here from the public university I attended in North Carolina, but at the same time I love it! If you are ever around Philadelphia, I highly encourage you to take a walk through the UPENN campus. From the moment you step foot on Locust Walk, you feel as if you've been transported back in time and thrown into a movie. The buildings are old architecture and every walkway is lined with big oak trees.

Today I had the chance to attend some classes in the fashion design program, which of course I could not turn down. We were each given the challenge of creating an outfit in 30 minutes using clothing from three different name brand stores. Catch was the entire outfit had to cost between $500-$750. We also had to use neutral colors and pick one accessory to add a pop of color too; hint the orange clutch! Now while I am no where close to having the money to buy this outfit, I'm hoping it might give you some inspiration for an upcoming fall shopping trip! Let me know what you think!

Jeans: J.CREW ($168)
Top: J.CREW ($98)
Jacket: LOFT ($108)
Heels: Anthropologie ($158)
Necklace: LOFT ($34.50)
Bangle: LOFT ($16.50)
Clutch: J.CREW ($158)
