My College Homecoming

My college homecoming was this weekend and was so much fun. College doesn't feel like it was that long ago, and yet I feel like so much has happened in the six years since I graduated.
I went to the University of South Carolina and had such a wonderful time there. I consider going to USC one of the best decisions I ever made. I made great lifelong friends, and I think that was the best part. I spent a lot of time with these girls.
 If I could change anything about college, I think it would have been best to not have been in the long term relationship that I was in. I dated someone all through college. For many reasons, it was a hard lesson learned. I am definitely 100% happier now than I could have even imagined back then!
We started Friday night by attending an alumni event. This was also a work event for me.

You can't see my dress very well, but I picked up a black peplum dress at Ross for super cheap.
Saturday morning came way too quickly after being out the night before.
A few Bloody Marys and biscuits later and I was good as new.
My suitemate from college, Amber. We missed Ashley, our other suitemate on Saturday, but I got to see her Friday at the alumni event.
I found my garnet top at Wish in Five Points and think I'll wear it a lot.
Happy Monday everyone!


  1. It looks like you had so much fun! I went to all of the homecoming events last week (including the parade in the rain), and then woke up feeling terrible on Saturday, so I ended up canceling my homecoming ticket! I was so sad! Love your top!

  2. I do think people should stay together if they are happy (I have a "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality), but I am getting the impression that you weren't. I think my mistake in college was trying too hard to fit in, rather than being myself.

  3. Looks like fun! Yes, I hope to encourage Shelby not to date someone seriously in high school or college for long term because I think you miss out on a lot. Who knows though. A lot of people marry their college sweethearts are happy 50-years later.
