to college and beyond!

For those of you who don't know I am a graduate assistant for the Office of Multicultural Affairs at my alma mater- Rider University. Right now, I am running an MSLI {multicultural student leadership institute} Summer Bridge Program. About 20 multicultural students move into campus a week early for workshops, trips, and activities to prepare them for college. {Lots of work, but rewarding and fun at the same time}

As my never-ending work week continues, here is an outfit I wore while "chaperoning" a college pub dance party:
What I Wore: red studded flats- bought in a small shop in Shanghai, tribal print skirt- thrifted last year from my trip to Hilton Head, SC,  grey metallic shirt- last year: A&F outlet in Hilton Head, SC, black lace cardigan- Lauren Conrad for Khols. 
Accessories: neon yellow belt- H&M, leather Dooney & Bourke bag- was my mom's, leopard glasses =)

this bag was my mom's first "nice" bag
I love it, so 
cute & classic

Rider University is my alma mater {I went there as an undergraduate for my degree in Biology, I am back there as a graduate student/assistant for education}
I loved my experiences in college, and I wanted to share a Rider tradition that I got to re-experience in the pub. 
At the Rider Pub, you sign your name on the wall when you are a graduating senior. It is incredible to see all of the names and history. 

Here is my signature: 
I was a sister of Alpha Xi Delta so my letters are above
Pinto is my big sister from the sorority
& there is my name & my {now} fiancé's name Charlie

Just a really cool place to go and look at all the memories written on the walls. 
I have had unlimited fun at that place =)
