Newberg, 10/20

skirt: urban outfitters, sweater & heels: goodwill, shirt: costco, purse: thrifted
Before I begin: disregard the fact that I am wearing the same sweater in this post as my last post. This was, for your information, October 20th! So it was quite the coincidence that I would wear this same sweater again last Friday. ;) Anyway, onto more important matters...

On our second to last day of college touring, my mom and I went to George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon. We were given a lovely tour and an equally as lovely informational meeting about the application process at Fox. I actually quite enjoyed the campus and the Christian message that was obvious there. Albeit, it is in Newberg...which is a smallish town about a half hour from Portland. I loved Portland... but it isn't exactly in Portland. I'm definitely still applying though! :)

That afternoon we drove over to Salem, Oregon to look at Corban University. I don't want to say anything negative because I'm sure it's a great school in itself... but to be honest, we didn't even bother with the tour. The school has like 3 penitentiaries around it... and Salem was a ways away from the school, and it didn't look like it would hold anything of interest anyway. I feel bad, but here's the truth: we spent the afternoon thrifting instead! I'm such a bad kid. Psshshh. It was fun though. We found a lot of good deals....and had a lot of fun taking it all home on the airplane... ooopss.... xx

  3. The idea of doing a campus tour before applying sounds amazing! Here in Portugal people don't do that (at least that often) and they just apply according to what they found on the internet! It's a bit sad!

    Anyway, you look gorgeous and super comfy in that outfit! I love the scarf! :D

  5. You look so pretty. I love all the colors and the red lip. So very classy. Most people going in for college tours probably wear sweatshirts. Good job for going the extra mile.
