Chic of the Week

Hey guys! Happy Friday 🙂 

This week’s Chic of the Week is from my PNW vacation! I was literally so cold the entire trip. I don’t like being cold!! And yet, I’m way to excited for fall & Halloween & Thanksgiving & Christmas… Also, this was taken in front of FLOATING HOMES. How cool is that?? It made me want to pick up my life & go live on the water.

The sweater is from H&M, but it’s a couple of years old. I’m really digging rainbow sweaters for this season! The pants are thrifted Levi’s & I would say they are my best thrift purchase to date. They fit so well & are high waisted & cropped, which are the only kind of pant I wear. They are super cute paired with a belt. The shoes are white mules from Target 🙂 

I feel like I’m finally, kinda-sorta getting my life together. Four weeks into school 🙂 Better late than never though! I had a super fun weekend in Houston last week for a wedding, & tomorrow I’m going to brunch & a football game! Best way to spend the weekend if you ask me! I’m also going to finish the travel diary from my trip. I’m like a month late but… it’s fine.

Hey guys! 

I think this is my last outfit pic from vacation 😦 I just really want to go back!! The top & shoes are from Target (imagine that) & I’ve talked about the shorts a million times because they are the only pair I own. I got the top when I was shopping for my internship because I have to dress professional, but I was so afraid of losing my style! I am not a black slacks kinda lady, so I was super excited to find a top like this & a lot of other items that I want to wear! I think I’ll actually do a whole post about this, because I know I’m not the only one that doesn’t like dressing “business”. There are so many ways to be cute & professional! 

This pic was taken at a lavender farm we found in Washington!! It was so beautiful. I plan to do a whole post about our trip & all the must-sees, but SCHOOL. Really stressing me out. I just want to sit in my pajamas & blog all day…

Hey guys! Happy Friday 🙂 

This week’s Chic of the Week is kind of old. I shot this look during the summer right before I went to go see Jurassic World 3! (It was pretty good.) 

The dress is thrifted, but originally from Forever21. I think I got the shoes at Charming Charlies awhile back, but they are super popular & go with pretty much everything! As always, check out the “Shop this Look” section for links. 

This week I have been soooo crazy busy. It was my first week of classes, work, my internship, & club meetings. I feel like I haven’t been home for more than a minute & I definitely don’t think I’ve been breathing lol. I literally just sat down & wrote down everything I’m doing & decided to narrow it down to my priorities & the things I really love, because I don’t want to burn myself out! I get sick when I get stressed & I can’t afford that. I’m trying to slow down & remind myself that I don’t have to do it all 🙂 So here’s your reminder too! Self care is important. Put yourself & your health first; resume second.

My Favorite Statement Necklace

Hi guys! Today I am partnering with Chic Wish List to share my favorite statement necklace! I’m excited for this post because it’s my first REAL collaboration. I only want to work with brands I truly love & enjoy their products, so I was excited when they reached out because I really like their jewelry & overall aesthetic. I wanted to quickly share what I got & a coupon code for you guys so you can be CHIC too 😉

I chose the Bar Necklace Double Layer in gold. This type of necklace is super trendy & easy to style. I look for pieces that can be dressed up or down & I’ve been able to wear this to work & to party!! 

Their products are a little pricey, but high quality! One investment piece from their collection is really all you need!

Omigosh guys.

It’s been sooo long since I’ve sat down to write! I decided to take some time off because I was going through something in my personal life & traveling & packing to move. I only want to write quality content, so I’m back & ready to take time to write again.

I decided to do a “12 Things” along with my Chic of the Week, to fill you guys in on my life. So much has happened in the past month, it’s WILD. 

First, outfit details!! This dress is actually thrifted from Buffalo Exchange. It can be easily dressed up or down. For example, I’m wearing it with sneakers in this picture, but I’ve also worn it to work with heels! It’s also a wrap dress, so super trendy. I’ve linked a similar one in the “Shop this Look” section. The shoes are my go-to white sneakers. Linked below as always! 

Now, for the TEA. 

1.) I’m a junior in college!! I seriously can’t believe it. Time has gone by so fast & I never want it to end. I start classes on Monday & I’m not ready!! 

2.) I joined a blogger Instagram group earlier this summer & have made so many online friends because of it! I love the Internet & how it brings people together 🙂 

3.) I moved into my new apartment a week ago! I’m living with my best friend from high school & her friend. I think we’re going to have so much fun together! 

4.) I got blonde highlights in my hair! I really like it so far. At first I was like, what did I just do, but it’s already grown on me & I really like it! I wanted to do balayage, but decided to start slow to see if I like it, so we’ll see. 

5.) I also got my hair cut & I think it’s the shortest it’s ever been, but it’s CUTE. Why did no one tell me I look better with short hair? 

6.) My trip to Canada was AMAZING. I plan to do a travel post with all the things to see & do. It is such a beautiful (& cold) country.

7.) I went to Seattle for the second time this summer & I fell in love with it all over again. I just love the pacific northwest, but it is such a cool city. I can see myself there some day…

8.) I got a new planner from Target! The only reason I like going back to school is the excuse to buy a new, cute planner & organize my life. I can pretend like I have everything together. 

9.) I finally found the career for me! In high school, I loved student council, & got so excited to plan school events & organize assemblies, & I remember thinking I wanted a job where I got to do the same things. Well, yesterday at work I ended up painting posters for an event we’re having next week, which is all I used to do in stuco…

10.) I have really been enjoying podcasts lately! I might do a post with some of my favorites, but for now, I love “What We Said” by blogger Jaci Smith & her friend! 

11.) My boyfriend of 3 years & I broke up. That is the reason I stopped writing. I was, & still am, confused & sad, so the last thing I felt like doing was writing. Might do a post later, but I’m not even sure what I would say. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I keep telling myself all of this is for a reason 🙂 

12.) I spilt coffee ALL OVER my new white shirt & white yoga pants this morning. Great start to my weekend!!

Hi guys! Happy weekend! 

I am super excited for this post because everyone needs this dress! I found it at Target & it was kind of an impulse buy. I didn’t need it, but I was browsing the clothes (bad idea) & had to try it on. As soon as I put it on, I knew I needed it. I also tried on a bathing suit that I thought was so cute & thought about getting every time I went to Target, BUT it just didn’t look good on me. Another fun fact: I hate trying on clothes! It’s such a chore. I was with my mom so she told me to try it on & I’m glad she made me because there are a lot of clothes that haven’t fit the best just because I refused to try them on. Learn from my mistakes. 

The story behind these pics is kind of funny! My roomie & I went thrift shopping (& I found $15 Levi’s!! Post coming soon…) & we saw these bushes on the side of the road so we decided to have a mini photoshoot! It was literally right by a main street & in a restaurant parking lot, but the lighting was so good. She’s also a photographer, so they turned out AMAZING. Any place is Instagrammable if you try hard enough!

Hey guys, happy Friday!!

This has seemed like such a crazy, long week! It kind of hit me how quickly summer is going & how much I have to do before school starts. I got stressed for awhile, but I’m trying to enjoy living stress free for as long as possible. Because we all know once the semester starts I’m a hot mess 🙂 Today I’m sharing another look from my staycation because I miss it so much!! I just want to sit by the pool with a shirley temple (or maybe something stronger) 😉 

So I actually got this dress at Ross. Before you all freak out, let me just tell you: Stores like Ross & TJ Maxx have so much potential, you just have to look. You can find some gems with enough patience. I’m also not going to lie to you all & say I’m wearing Gucci because we all know that’s not going to happen. Maybe someday I’ll pull up to a Prada storefront with my G Wagon, but today is not that day. So here I am, a fashion blogger, telling you it’s ok to shop at the cheap places.

Fourth of July is already coming up next week! I love dressing festive, so if you’re anything like me, this dress is perfect! I have linked something similar down below so you don’t have to go to your nearest TJ MAXX & raid the racks. And the shoes are the exact ones I have & I love them!!

Happy Friday! 

The week has seemed to fly by, which is great because now it’s the weekend! I got back from a staycation on Sunday, so that’s where this pic was taken. They had happy hour every night we were there with snacks (hummus!!) & free drinks. I got a shirley temple & I forgot how yummy they are. They’re also pink & aesthetically pleasing. 

So actually a funny story about this jumpsuit: I had been looking EVERYWHERE for a jumpsuit that fit me, but they all had like a foot of material dragging on the ground because I’m 5 foot nothing. So I was kinda sad, but kept looking. My roommate had this jumpsuit & brought it on our spring break trip & I thought it was so cute! Well, she accidentally put it in the dryer & it shrunk :/ so it didn’t fit her anymore & offered to give it to me. It was such a perfect fit that we agreed I could have it! So it all worked out. She got it at Forever21, & although I couldn’t find the exact one on their website, I linked something similar. But hurry, because it’s almost sold out!! 

I also linked a similar pair of shoes. The shoes are so comfy & they go with everything, even though they are blue, it’s a neutral in spring & summer. I also used to be OBSESSED with aviator sunglasses in high school. I thought they would make me cool. (They didn’t.) I linked a cheap pair of glasses for you guys too, in case you want to be a cool kid. 😉

Happy summer Friday!!

I am in a 100,000x better mood in the summer. It might just be because I have five iced coffees a day, but we’ll pretend it’s because I don’t have school! I know for sure it’s not the weather, because I do NOT like that. At least not 120 degree weather.

This week’s outfit of the week is a little different; I’m showing you guys my swim suit from Target that I wore in Hawaii! I got so many compliments on it & I find high waisted suits so flattering on every body type. It is so comfy & modest. I love swim suits that are not only cute, but comfortable. There is NOTHING worse than feeling like you are going to have a nip slip every second amiright ladies? Target also has really cute suits for cheap! I feel like there is no such thing as too many suits, so I try to buy a bunch of cheap ones. 

Speaking of Hawaii… the moment you all have been waiting for… my Hawaii travel diary is going up next week!! Make sure to check back for that 😉 In the meantime, check out my Hawaii Recap blog post!

Happy long weekend guys!!

P.S. Target is having a swim suit sale right now so hurry!! Literally suits starting at $12.

Happy Friday guys! 

This week’s outfit is super summery! This has been the first hot week in awhile, & I wasn’t really ready for it. Spring lasted 2 seconds! Anyway, I do love summer fashion because it is so easy to look good with no effort! I love the minimal style that summer brings. 

This romper is from the Kendall & Kylie collection at PacSun. I got it last summer so it’s not available anymore, but I’ve linked a similar one in the “Shop this Look” section. Don’t forget to check that out at the end of my Chic of the Week posts because that’s where you’ll find all of the outfit details! Also, PacSun is having a SALE right now! Get 20% off $100 with the code SPRINGSTYLE20. You don’t want to miss that deal! 

Next week is my finals week & then summerrrr! I don’t know if I told you guys, but I’m officially going to Hawaii! I’m so excited to sightsee & have a vacation, but also to see my brother! I might just have him teach me to surf. We’ll see. But with that being said, I won’t be blogging this next week because I have a lot of studying & packing to do! But I will come back with lots of good pictures in a couple of weeks! 

Good luck to those of you taking finals! Check out my post from Monday for some motivation 🙂
