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!
TGIF, ladies!! We made it through the week- YAY! As most of you can probably tell, I love cold shoulder tops! They’re so flattering on every frame, and add a little extra oomph to a plain outfit. It’s been a little warmer down here in College Station, so I couldn’t help but to start breaking out my spring stuff- don’t judge me!
This cold shoulder dress is so lightweight and surprisingly comfortable. It’s perfect for a date night (maybe for this upcoming Valentine’s!) or even just for a Sunday spent at church & having brunch with your girlfriends. I paired it with some nude strap heels, but you could totally pull it off with some wedges to make it a little more casual.
I wear navy probably way more than I should, but I personally think it’s the color that looks best on me! Navy’s also a super flattering color for every skin tone too. I love it because it’s subtle enough to not be in your face, but not as dark as a jet black. Everyone needs a little color from time to time. 🙂
I hope all of you had a good start to the new year, here’s to the rest of 2017 being remarkable! Have a great weekend, friends!! xoxo

Valentine’s Day is just 3 weeks away!! Valentine’s Day has always been one of my very favorite holidays- even before I had a boyfriend! There’s just something about teddy bears, roses, and chocolates that makes me blush. 🙂
I’m not sure what Akash & I have planned for this upcoming Valentine’s Day- probably just a dinner date (and hopefully some pretty roses!) Last year we had this amazing romantic dinner at Christopher’s World Grille in College Station. The food was so good & the dessert- don’t even get me started on the dessert!
This outfit is inspired by Valentine’s Day- it’s a super cute outfit idea for a date with your boyfriend or hubby! I’m usually not a fan of paisley, but I really like how it’s worked in with the floral print of the dress. I found this dress at Altar’d State for 60% off- they’re having their Semi Annual sale right now, and all sale items are an additional 60% off!
I tried to keep it simple, with just a quilted bag and some pretty grey strappy heels. I actually snagged these heels from Aldo on a super crazy sale about a year ago, and I finally got to break them out. I’m not going to lie, they’re surprisingly kind of hard to walk in… and I had to poke an extra hole so that the button could fit on the strap. But for only $18? I’ll take it!
I know it’s still a bit early, but I want to know what all of you have planned for the upcoming holiday. I have a couple more Valentine’s Day-themed posts coming up, so keep your eyes peeled for those!

I know wearing white after labor day is basically one of the cardinal rules of fashion, but I can’t help myself- there’s just something that looks so crisp & clean about wearing white in the winter with sweaters & boots. For me it’s super hard to find a pair of white jeans, so once I do I wear them for years and years! I’ve actually had this pair from J. Crew since sophomore year of high school… 5 years and counting!
I paired it with a light grey sweater and some super cute booties by Faryl Robin, and I think it looks extremely effortless but cute. If you have a pair of white jeans that you love, don’t be afraid to break them out during the wintertime with your favorite light-colored sweaters- I especially love wearing them because they’re like a break from all the dark & earthy tones that frequent my outfits in the winter time!
I hope each and all of you have a safe & happy New Year’s Eve!! 2016’s been such an amazing year for me (mostly because of the beginning of my blogging career!), and I’m so excited for what’s to come. I’ll see all of you in 2017 with my New Year’s Resolutions post!! 🙂
