European Trend 1: The Jean Jacket

jacket, sweater, shoes, sunnies: forever 21
jeans: thrift store

Loves, I am in Dublin. 
I'm going to repeat that, mostly for my sake because I can't believe it, I am in Dublin.  Yesterday marked two weeks of being here and with it, surged a handful of satisfying feelings. Feeling geographically aware, feeling socially capable, feeling as if I can begin building my life here, wanting to begin building my life here. So many emotions, but through it all the most important feeling surfaced, hope. I felt a hope for what is to come, for what the next few months hold for me. 

It's been two weeks and within the first two days I realized this experience would be nothing I had originally expected it to be. With that emerged doubts, fears, and overall uneasiness. The first few days were hard. I spent a lot of time thinking "what have I done", unable to see past the current moment of difficulty. I kept putting myself out there and being repeatedly  humbled by city and university social norms. BUT here I am, the start of week three and I can't wait. I can't wait to see my friends and laugh about miserably failing at karaoke this past weekend. I can't wait to go to my classes and discuss visual merchandising rules in a retail environment. I'm excited, and I look forward to moving forward, learning, and loving more. 

Guys, two words: European style. It's so different, it's so 90's. One of my favorite trends here is the jean jacket. I picked up one from the Forever 21 here in town and fell in love immediately. With it being the perfect piece to finish off any outfit, I honestly have to tell myself I can't wear it every day. I love partnering it with jeans and a black body suit, sweater, or even a black dress. It truly goes with everything and I.am.in.love. Also check out the trendy button I found on the side of the road here. I'm hoping I'll be lucky enough to find more additions for the jean jacket.

Well, that's all for now.
Until next time,
xoxo,
Court
