You can never be overdressed or overeducated.
This post was supposed to go out last week already, but as per usual, life got in the way. With kids going off to school, new routines to get used to, the blog fell by the way side. Apologies!
My own trip to University feels like yesterday and not a lifetime ago. Can still remember the trip with my mom to get the essentials – multiplug, kettle, mugs, desk lamp and bedding and the agony to make the shared space feel like home. Something we at least managed to do – although the desk became my beauty dresser and my bed the preferred place to study – go figure……
Today made me feel really old, seeing my friends’ daughter getting ready for her freshman year. So I offered to make her shared space feel like home, by pulling together a quick look for her dorm room.
Funny, twenty years later and the requirements have not changed one bit, except for electronics making their lives way more comfortable – no cellphones, internet or laptops used my time round…… How I remember queuing to make a call from the pay phone when feeling terribly homesick and writing papers (manually) until my fingers where numb. I guess they’ll have their own challenges to deal with – one electrical outlet in the room spells social media meltdown!
Here’s the look I pulled together for Sarah and as per usual, Target came through! Hope you enjoy and to all the Sarah’s out there standing at the threshold of brand new beginnings – all I can say is Enjoy! It goes faster than you think!
