Opa!

I am quite literally jumping for joy right now. My visa has arrived and everything is official--I am studying abroad this fall. I fly on the 22nd (so soon!)...to Greece! Ah yes, this is going to be good.

In regards to that, I'm not certain what will become of the blog. I will continue blogging, but will probably be more erratic, especially during the first few weeks. In addition, the subject matter might switch to more of a focus on what I'm seeing and doing rather than fashion in general.
This is what I hope to be seeing. Pictures from here.
Now, I'm going to go make some celebratory tzatziki and practice packing light...
