Autumn Travels & Sisterly Love

I surprised my sister up at her new school in Massachusetts this past weekend  It was so exciting to travel incognito and show up at the steps of her dorm! I had so much fun catching up with my whole family and trading stories with my sisters of our moves across the country over maple almond milk lattes. I am so proud of her!

I took the opportunity to wear my striped sweater, jeans, navy peacoat, bubble necklace & leopard loafers. It felt perfectly preppy with a twist while we were touring the ivy league campuses.

The leaves still looked absolutely beautiful and we had fun grabbing coffee, trying out local restaurants, geeking out over all the historic sites, and doing some antiquing. Okay okay, a little bit of shopping was thrown in for good measure too.

Near or far, it's always so nice to catch up with mom, dad & little sis allie-- she even gave me a few of her "keep your balance" bracelets before I left.

Do any of my fellow readers live a long way from family? How do you stay close despite the distance?

xoxo, lauren

I now live in Spain whilst my friends and family are scattered in the North West of England and SW London! Skype mainly. Can't wait to go home at Christmas though!

You and your sis are SO cute!!!! I think family time is so important. I honestly don't know WHAT I would do without them! We FaceTime a lot when I'm away :)

I go to school in Michigan, about 500 miles from home. To keep in touch I talk on the phone a lot, write lots of emails and I try to write snail mail letters too! There's nothing better than getting surprise mail!

Aren't sisters the best! I have two a twin sister and a younger sister and until recently they both lived far away. We would plan trips where we would take turns meeting in eachothers cities. It was a lot of fun. Love your outfit by the way.
