September Favorites

       A week late, but better than never! Click the video above to see my September favorites. This month was really crazy and full of adjustments for me. I moved to a different state for college (after not even attending camp as a kid). I suffered being homesick. I made a LOT of important decisions and really just worked on me as a person. My mom keeps telling me this will all make me stronger, and I hope she is right! I am looking forward to October (my birthday month wooohooo) and hopefully even more decisions being made! Thanks for all your support this past month, October is going to be amazing for With A City Dream!!

My New Fall Go-To's

      Fall is here, you guys fall is here! While I was sad to pack away my rompers and dresses, the feeling didn’t last long when I threw on my cozy sweaters and pulled out my favorite fall pieces. Lately I have scored some fabulous new items, and this Fall my go-to's are my new FRYE boots and bag. New additions to an old wardrobe can be tricky, but these neutral (yet fabulous) pieces fit seamlessly into my Fall attire.

       The reason why I am so excited about these new accessories is because 1) they are STUNNING and 2) FRYE is a brand with a focus on quality. I know these pieces will last me year after year thanks to their benchcrafting method of creating each boot in over 190 steps (that is some serious dedication). When I invest in a piece for my wardrobe I want it to be special, last me a long time, and make me feel confident. What makes me feel confident is being comfortable and looking my best. This outfit does just that for me! My style is all about classic pieces worn in a trendy way. FRYE’s product fit into that with an edgy yet classic over the knee boot and beautiful fringe bag. They say it best (and I couldn’t agree more):

“While we have roots as craftsmen, we are always looking forward. We give equal devotion to innovation and design. It’s our privilege to inspire you, creating footwear and accessories that enhance your style and confidence to become part of your life.”

       I found layering is my best friend in Fall. The mornings can be so chilly especially on my way to my 8:30 class (yikes), but by the time my afternoon classes roll around I can be sweating. So having vests, sweaters and tops underneath is a great go-to for me, and I can just throw them in my bag if I decide to take them off! Paired with my favorite jeans and a few minimal jewelry items, I am ready to take on any fall day looking good and feeling confident.

My College Morning Routine

     The first thing I realized when I came to college is that you are constantly on the go. From the moment I wake up my day is jam-packed. One thing that keeps me sane is eating a good breakfast before class. Right now that includes Born Sweet™ Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener on everything.

      The first thing I do when I wake up is roll over and start the machine to get my coffee brewing. I like my coffee with a tiny bit of milk and one packet of Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener. I then make myself a bowl of cereal and add another packet of Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener on top! I bring my coffee and cereal over to my desk where I do my hair and makeup while eating - multitasking at it’s best!


    After breakfast I quickly get dressed and head out the door to class. Even though I have little time in the morning I always remember my dad telling me a great day starts with a great breakfast, and I truly believe that. One of the reasons I love Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener is because it has Zero artificial ingredients and zero calories making it perfect for adding a delicious sweetness to so many of my favorite foods and drinks. And it doesn’t leave you with a funny artificial aftertaste which I really appreciate! It is the perfect start to my busy college days.
