Lace-Up Everything

Posted in Fashion, Outfits
on April 17, 2017







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!


Dreaming of Summer

Posted in Fashion, Outfits
on April 14, 2017



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!! ❤️

The Perfect Dress for Easter

Posted in Fashion, Outfits

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

March 2017 Round-Up

Posted in Lifestyle, Monthly Round-Ups
on April 3, 2017

Happy April!! A quarter of the year is already half over- can you believe it?! Insane.

15 minutes ago, I was debating on whether to even do a monthly round-up for March- for some reason, I thought I didn’t have enough to share, so I looked in my camera roll to see what all I did this month. Turns out there’s actually quite a bit that happened this month, so I’m excited to be sharing it with all of you.

Let’s jump right into it, starting with the first weekend in March that I spent back home Dallas, Texas. In case you missed it, I did a whole post on my new blogger friend Jess. It was so fun to sit down & have lunch with her- cheers to new friends!

Also in the month of March, Akash & I discovered our new favorite restaurant in College Station- Blackwater Draw! If you follow me on Instagram (which you should) you’ve probably seen some of the pictures I took there- SO YUMMY. For any of you who are in the College Station/Bryan area, it’s a must try if you haven’t been already! Their food is to die for.

Akash & I also went on spring break on the 12th, and had so much fun in New Orleans. I’m sure you’ve all seen it, but I’ve linked the post here in case you missed it! Definitely check out that post if you’re visiting the city anytime soon- I took y’all day by day through our first time in the city of jazz.

After our trip to New Orleans, I spent 4 days back home in Dallas just catching up with friends & spending time with my family. Home is my favorite place to be! My best friend Melody & I took a trip to the Texas Tulips field in Pilot Point, Texas. It was incredibly windy, but it was fun to see it & take some cute photos. It was also during this trip that I got news that I got the internship I’d wanted!! Definitely a highlight of the month. 🙂

I had two collabs this month, and they were both so much fun to take part in! The girls at The Mint Julep Boutique & Dizzy Shoes were both so much fun to work with, and it makes me super excited for all the projects I have coming up in the near future… keep an eye out! 😉

I also shared this gorgeous maxi dress on the blog earlier in the month, and it’s probably one of my favorite pieces that I’ve featured on the blog yet. Check out the post here!

So that’s all I have for y’all today- hope you enjoyed this short & sweet monthly round-up! Here’s to a great start to April- yay!!

When Life Gives You Lemons

Wear a lemon printed romper! When I saw this adorable romper at Francesca’s I knew I had to have it- can we just take a moment and talk about how fun it is?! I’m in love! This outfit’s giving me serious summer time vibes, and I just want to plan a beach trip so I can have an excuse to break this romper out- even though let’s be honest, I’ll more than likely be wearing it nonstop anyway. Y’all know I’m a huge fan of color; I’ve never been one of those girls whose closets are 90% black, with a little mix of grey & white. I love color year round, so obviously spring & summer are my favorite seasons for fashion!

One of my fave outfit combos for spring and summer are a romper with my favorite (comfortable) wedges. As much as I love getting dolled up, I live for being comfortable! Y’all Texas girls know how unbearable the Texas heat can get, so even though I would love to be wearing jeans in the summer, I’m definitely not trying to sweat buckets after spending just 10 minutes outside!

This outfit would be perfect for dinner out with your gal pals, or any casual events you have going on this spring. Unfortunately Shop Style doesn’t support Francesca’s on their platform, so I’ve linked this romper here! I have, however, linked a similar style below with everything else from this look!

Have a great rest of your week, friends!!
