Day in the Life: Promised Land


One of my best friends visited me at my summer internship and we had so much fun. We went thrift shopping, tried a new food, ate chocolate, and explored a city.


evidence of fun – photo creds to anna for any pics of me 

We had a great thrifting day. Can you believe these incredible finds?

Just kidding – I did find an amazing red clutch and some awesome military boots. We spent almost two hours there because they had such great stuff. Hungry from our thrifting, we went to Shady Glen, a renowned restaurant in the area. It was interesting because the entire menu was on the wall. The waitress came over and asked us what we wanted and I was so confused because we hadn’t gotten any menus. We tried the “crispy cheese” burger which is a Shady Glen delicacy. It was basically a potato chip (except made out of cheese). I really liked it!


anna also took this one

We then got some chocolates at a local chocolate shop and explored the Wesleyan campus. It was so gorgeous.

It was super hot, so I didn’t want to wear anything too heavy or dark. I also wanted something easy to throw on and off for thrifting. One of my other best friends made this great duplicate of a Forever 21 shirt.
