Need for Spring

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

I feel kind of hypocritical titling this post Need for Spring since I talked about how it's my least favorite season on Monday's post... haha but that doesn't mean I don't get excited for a new spring wardrobe every year!

If you can't tell, this season I'm obsessed with florals, embroidered pieces, and pastel pinks! Every piece I've included is super affordable! A lot of these pieces are definitely "statement" pieces, so I would recommend pairing them with basics to balance an outfit. I am obsessed with the skirt above (#4) and it's only $25! I just ordered it this week, so it's safe to say you'll see it here or on my instagram before the season's over!

Also.. I've started the search for the perfect Easter dress! Leave me a comment below if you know of any stores with good spring dresses I should check out, or if you would like to see me round up some of my favorites here for some inspiration!  

Have a good hump day!

Camo Skirt + Plain White Tee

I think spring has officially sprung and I am pumped! Spring is actually my least favorite of the seasons (bc pollen), but I like it because it means warmer weather which means summer is on the come up! woohoo! 

I decided to celebrate the warm weather by pulling out this camo skirt I bought a couple of months back from Wet Seal. rip wet seal :( I love pairing basics together for an easy outfit, and camo is so trendy right now! I linked some super similar skirts below that are all under $18 :) 

I'm also loving these type of "flat-form" shoes that are popular right now! I bought these from a local boutique here in Columbia, but I was able to find them on Amazon here! They're so comfy and you can wear them with everything! 

Check back on Wednesday to see my spring wardrobe wishlist!



Happy Monday and thanks for reading!

February Favorites

original post here

Hello! This favorites post is up a little late, but better late than never am i right? February was a crazy month, but an awesome month as well! I started a new job, celebrated some birthdays, went to a country concert, and almost cut three of my fingers off! Whaaaaat? Yeah, you read that right, it was in the process of cutting a sweet potato, and it still hurts a little to type this as we speak :)

MEDIA FAVS// First off, I have been keeping up with The Bachelor (which is impressive because I work on Monday nights), and it is so good! I am PUMPED for the finale tonight, but I have to work, so unfortunately I'll have to watch it tomorrow :(
(don't worry though, I'm deleting all social media apps until I'm able to watch so I don't see any spoilers)

I also have a instagram fav this month. I have been obsessed with "Sincerely Jules" t-shirts for a while, and bit the bullet and finally bought one this month. (You probably recognize this shirt from the line!) I decided to look up the girl behind the brand on Instagram, and I became obsessed! Julie SariƱana, (@sincerelyjules on insta), is the founder of the Sincerely Jules clothing brand and has an awesome insta page! Every picture she posts is so tropical and she makes me crave summer! 

BEAUTY FAVS// I didn't try any new beauty items, but I re-fell in love with some oldie but goodie favs that I am working on a whole post about coming up shortly! I also tried a ton of new products for spring break, so I'll be able to update you on that in this month's favorites as well!

MUSIC FAVS// Okay. 2 words. Bruno Mars. Yeah. If you haven't heard any of his new songs, you may think I'm crazy but I have been jammin' to his new album non stop! So good! I love "Chunky" and "That's What I Like"! In the complete opposite direction, I've also been loving listening to "Elevation Worship" on Spotify. They are so good, and I would definitely recommend checking them out if you need new worship music to listen to!

LIFE FAVS// A favorite this month has been -finally- having a schedule! I honestly confuse myself so much because I am very unorganized when it comes to physical things ie: keeping up with my belongings, keeping my room clean, but I'm so type-A when it comes to keeping my life and school work organized aka I spend at least ten minutes a day creating to-do lists for the day and week in my agenda that I HAVE to complete...  I say all of this to say that starting my new job has given me a set weekly schedule that I am loving! Even though I'm busy, knowing exactly what I'm going to be doing at any time of the week is so satisfying, and it makes me spend my free time very productively!

I know I've mentioned how busy I am ten million times over the past couple of weeks, but thanks so much for bearing with me and the lack of posts/pictures recently. I am hoping to be finally back on track!

March has been a great month so far, and I can't wait to see what the rest of the month holds! Happy Monday!

Easy Like Saturday Morning

Y'all. Happy Saturday! I'm -officially- on spring break, after a crazy busy couple of weeks! Whooooo! This morning I hit up my local farmers market, which I try to do as often as I can because it's the perfect way to jumpstart my weekend! There's a table there where you pay $10 and get to fill up a box this size with as many fruits/veggies as you can fit! 

What you see above is a stuffed avocado with quinoa, roasted tomatoes, cucumbers, and cilantro. Amazing. 

Also, I have to tell ya about my favorite invention. I have been obsessed with making homemade cold brew coffee, and it's. so. good. I had it every morning this week, and it makes me HYPE. I have this cold brew maker, and you let it steep for 12-24 hours, so it's so strong! (it's also on Amazon Prime , so you experience this glorious cold brew in 2 days ;) You neeeeed it in your life I promise!

My February favorites post will be up next week, so be on the lookout for that!

The rest of my weekend will be spent packing for my spring break trip next week! Leave me a comment on what your plans are for the weekend!
