Chic of the Week

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!!

12 Things

Hello guys!!

Today’s post is going to be a quick 12 Things, to tell you guys about my summer so far & my whereabouts. The last time I did one of these was the end of the school year I think, so it’s time for an update! 

1.) I am for sure going to Canada this summer!! We are going to Vancouver & Victoria, so if you’ve ever been, please send recommendations for things to do/see. 

2.) I LOVE my new job/internship. It’s literally the best job ever. The people are amazing, the cause is amazing, the work is amazing. I’ll probably talk about it a ton, so sorry in advance! Just super passionate 🙂 

3.) I’ve been really into country music lately! I grew up listening to it because I lived in a town where everyone liked it, but I go through phases. My first concert was actually Tim McGraw!

4.) I just got back from a staycation, & it was rainy the whole time, but still a good time with my family & a nice break from life 🙂 

5.) Speaking of rain, it’s monsoon season here in Arizona!! For those of you that don’t know, that means rain & clouds, aka my fav weather! 

6.) For the first time ever, I made my own dentist appointment today. Growing up is horrible.

7.) I just started Riverdale on Netflix!! Seems like the typical high school flick, but I love those kinda shows. Everyone raves about it so we’ll see!

8.) I bought a Victoria’s Secret robe this weekend & I’ve been wanting one forever & it is satin & soft so I think I am never going to take it off. 

9.)  I am slowly transitioning into sustainable living, & by that I mean, not using plastics & horrible things for the environment as much!! It’s so important & I hope soon everyone catches on to that.

10.) I was THIS close to buying a cat last weekend. Then I decided now is not the time. Cute Pinterest kitties will have to do for now:/

11.) I counted & school starts in like 8 weeks & I. am. not. ready. 🙂

12.) It’s currently 9:40 p.m. on Sunday night & my bedtime is 10 p.m. (get your 8 hours!!) so I am going to say byeee!

with love,

Chic of the Week

Happy Friday! 

Today’s outfit is actually courtesy of my mommy!! When I moved out for college, she moved some of her stuff into my closet & so when I came home & saw this dress, I had to have it!! It’s crazy how stuff comes back in style! I can’t tell you details on this exact dress, but long floral dresses & jumpsuits are in this season, so go snag one!

I know this is a short post, so I decided to add “12 Things”. I’ve thought about doing it once a month, just to keep you guys updated on my life. So here goes… 

1.) Only 3 more weeks of school left!! I am so excited for summer because…

2.) I have a lot of exciting travel plans! I don’t want to say anything yet because nothing is for sure, for sure, but it’s about a 98% chance I’m going to some pretty cool places. 

3.) I also got an internship for this summer & fall! My school requires us to do internships for credit (do other schools too??) & so I’m excited to get that going because…

4.) I’m almost halfway through college! When this semester is over, I will only have two years left. I’m not sure how I feel about that. 

5.) I got my first OFFICIAL blogger mail from Chic Wish List which has jewelry, clothing & chic purses. I especially like their jewelry, so you will see a post soon. 

6.) I mentioned this before, but I recently purchased Aspyn Ovard’s presets for my blog & Instagram! (Make sure to follow along here.) I already love how they make my feed look.

7.) My mom told me that my name was almost Aspyn, spelled the same exact way! She & my dad love the aspen trees of Colorado, so that’s where the inspiration came from 🙂 

8.) I’m thinking about switching over my blog to be self hosted. I’m coming upon the year anniversary of starting this blog, so I’m ready to make improvements!

9.) I want to get my hair cut again before summer, & I’m thinking about getting highlights. YAY or NAY? Please help!! 

10.) I have finally watched Friends all the way through & it’s so good! I am so attached to the characters. I’ve been told I’m most like Rachel & she’s my fav character! 

11.) I bought a new house plant that isn’t a succulent & I feel like it’s going to die & I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong! I water it & keep it in the sun for 4-6 hours per the directions, but it doesn’t look like it’s thriving. So any plant people, please help me. 

12.) I am watching The Office & it was just the fake fire scene & I’m dying laughing. Best scene in TV history ever.
