The Coat That Has Already Taken Over 2019

Seen everywhere from off-duty style to in the movie "Birdbox", these coats have made their way in to 2019 with a bang.

The Coat That Has Already Taken Over 2019

On Christmas Day 2018, the world went crazy for the movie "Birdbox". Even though it was overhyped online, its post-apocalyptic vibes provided people all around the world with the perfect way to pass time over the holidays. But while everyone else was going crazy for the movie's more than predictable plot, I, myself, was going crazy for Sandra Bullock's iconic blue coat.

Only weeks before the movie was released, celebrities such as Bella Hadid and Elsa Hosk were seen wearing very similar pieces out in the streets. These long-line coats with a fur trim collar are a statement piece by themselves, but vibrant colors and unique pastels make them even louder pieces. A statement coat is always a must during the winter and this year has brought us quite a statement indeed. Fur and faux fur are not only functional in keeping you warm during the colder weather, but they also add a texture to any outfit that is hard to beat.

But fur has not only made its way back to taking over the outerwear industry, but it has also taken over the runways this season. With New York Fashion Week quickly approaching, PRADA has had their Fall 2019 show recently and fur was a major component throughout its looks. The show incorporated fur into hats, shoulder pads, and even "hair" pieces. While these pieces might be a bit much for the average person to wear on a regular basis, the coats offer an easy outlet to express the trend this season.

With that being said, fur is definitely making a come back this year, and although runway pieces like PRADA's are not necessarily the most wearable, you can still easily hop on this trend. The particular coats that Sandra, Elsa, and Bella sported run in the thousands of dollars, so for a struggling college student the possibility of buying name brand is a hard no. But thanks to my trusty friend and go-to brand, ASOS, the trend is more than affordable and easy to incorporate into your everyday outfits. I have linked a few of my favorite "knock-offs" below. Click the links to hop on the trend... I know I will.

Stay warm out there. xoxo

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
