I promise I’m going to do my very very best to keep today’s post as lecture-like as possible (lol), but today I wanted to talk about something that’s been on my mind a lot these past few weeks. I mentioned the topic of being present in a blog post a few months back, and I got an overwhelming response from y’all, saying that you struggle with the same issue. It’s crazy how many of us get caught up in getting the perfect Insta, or spend forever arranging and rearranging our food as photogenic as possible for a Snapchat that will go away in 24 hours. That being said, today I want to talk about some steps that I’ve taken to practice enjoying life as it happens! I’m also super excited to hear what y’all have to say about this topic, so make sure to participate in the discussion down in the comments. 🙂
Summer’s almost here- YAY! Unfortunately for me, my summers of endless pool days and hanging out with friends are long gone, but on the bright side I have 2 weeks before the start of my internship to have some fun! I’m also SO pumped about all the trends coming around this summer- I just can’t have enough tassels or pom poms, y’all!
With that said, today I wanted to share my summer wish list- it’s full of things that may or may not already be in my shopping cart, or just things I’ve been eyeing. I can’t wait for this summer, y’all- it’s my last one as a student! Next summer I’ll officially be at a big girl job… it’s scary to think about!
Anyway, I had so much fun putting this wish list together for y’all- I’m currently still in bed sick. It’s officially my 5th day with this cold, and I’m miserable, y’all!! I hope you guys are having a better week than I am- we’re almost halfway through til the weekend!
Give me lace-up everything! This is definitely one of my favorite trends of the season, and I seriously can’t get enough. The best part about this outfit? This dress is under $20!!! Yes, $20! I want to start incorporating more affordable pieces sprinkled throughout my blog posts, so keep an eye out for some more inexpensive looks!
This entire outfit is under $100! I’m in love with this pair of Marc Fishers that I found at Ross, for under $30. I love shopping at stores like TJ Maxx, Ross, & Marshalls. Shopping at bargain stores is for sure hit or miss, but I always find so many goodies most times that I go! The only bad part is that I can’t link these exact shoes for y’all, but definitely check by your local Ross to see if they still have these babies in stock.
How was everyone’s Easter weekend?! Mine was unfortunately spent sick in bed… I had a cold all weekend & was bedridden for the past 3 days, ugh. There’s seriously nothing worse than being sick, especially since I always get sick at the worst times. Akash & I originally had a trip to Austin planned, but unfortunately it didn’t work out since I could barely leave the house to go grocery shopping. Anyway, I hope you all had a blessed weekend spent with everyone you love! This week’s going to be a busy one- your girl’s got 3 exams and a presentation this week. Happy Monday, friends!
We’re at that time of year where I begin dreaming of sand between my toes & wind in my hair, sitting on a beach drinking fruity goodness… but I guess for now a day at the pool will have to do! Summer time is one of my favorite times of year for fashion because of all the bright, fun colors. If it was up to me, I would make bright colors a year-round thing!
It was love at first sight when I saw this bag- who’s with me?! Tassels are huge this season, so I couldn’t resist getting this baby. The best part- it’s under $40!!
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I’m a pretty simple girl- this outfit is definitely no exception! Both this top and bag are from Lulu’s, and I already know I’ll be wearing this top non-stop through spring and summer. My style often consists of super classic & simple pieces, with a little pop of color or something more bold.
Do any of y’all have plans for Easter weekend? Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it back home this Easter, because I have a jam-packed weekend of work & catching up on school. Y’all- I just registered for my LAST semester of college, and had my last appointment with my advisor. It’s all becoming so real!! Soon I’ll be sending in my application for graduation too. I’ve been thinking about doing a college advice post- would any of y’all be interested in that? If yes- send me questions or topics that you’d like me to cover!
Anyway, hope all of you have an awesome weekend- happy Easter to those who celebrate!! ❤️
Hello friends!! I’m racing against time as I’m writing this with my last 3% of battery on my computer- I left my laptop charger back home in Dallas, but I didn’t want to leave y’all without a post tomorrow, so here’s hoping I finish before my laptop dies!
With Easter coming up this week, I wanted to share this pretty little number with y’all! I’m sure if you follow fashion blogs, you’ve seen this similar dress with puffy sleeves & lace detailing. Buuuut, I found this dupe for less than $40- crazy!! You get the exact same look, but for so much less. I love the lace detailing on it- it makes it so feminine & flirty, & the white is so crisp.
I paired it with my fave wedges of the season, & kept the accessories simple with just a plain light pink crossbody & my fave earrings. So simple + effortless, but fun for spring & perfect for all your Easter festivities!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend- I picked up a TON of things while I was back home, so I can’t wait to shoot them all for you this week! Have a great week, friends!! xoxo
