The Best Romper + 5 Things

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

Quick blurb about the outfit, and then I want to share with you guys 5 things:  I bought this gorgeous romper from Free People earlier this summer and have been waiting for the right weather to wear it because it is slightly heavier. I love that it's so different from most of the rompers I see people wearing. It's chic and artsy, looking perfect for an adventure abroad or a cover up out on a boat. I kept the accessories minimal and used my FAVORITE bag: the Longchamp Le Pliage (I'll be doing a post on it later). The Le Pliage was the first purse I ever bought myself years ago and I love that it will never go out of style. Also, I LOVE these sandals. I bought them as soon as Steve Madden released them and they go with everything. They remind me of these Hermes sandals, without being too similar and not nearly the price tag.

Okay on to the fun stuff! I wanted to share with you all 5 pieces of news and/or information about me since I haven't posted in a hot minute!

1) In school I am currently working on a research project and I am loving it! It started as an extra credit assignment (never turn extra credit down!!), and I am enjoying it so much, it may carry into next semester.

2) My skin is amazing right now! I have had acne ever since I can remember (and I don't mean little bumps, I mean the full blown cystic acne). I have been fortunate enough that my skin doesn't scar, however it has never been truly clear. Well today people, it is totally clear! I was gifted a Clarisonic over the summer, and between that and a few products I have tried at Sephora, I seem to have found the winning combo.

3) I have a new favorite coffee: This coffee from Walmart. It's low calorie, but tastes like the original version!

4) When I moved, my boyfriend's mom gave me this beautiful old dresser that didn't have a finish on it. I just redid the whole thing, staining it and replacing the knobs and I LOVE IT! It was such a fun project and I will be sharing before and after pictures soon on Instagram ;)

5) Lastly, I will be visiting Palm Beach soon and I cannot wait! I went for the first time over Spring Break and loved it. I'll be sharing tons of the photos on Instagram, so stay tuned.

Blazers are in this Fall

Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Blazer | Top (old J. Crew) Similar | Skirt (old J. Crew) Similar | Clutch: Old Louis Vuitton

This is the second blazer I have purchased in preparation for Fall. I used to not be a huge fan of blazers until I tried on a beautiful linen blazer from Target. I knew that it was perfect for so many occasions, so I started looking for more. I found the one that I am wearing for this post on sale at H&M a few weeks ago and LOVED it! It is so light and the material feels amazing. 

I feel that a good blazer is the perfect investment for a couple of reasons. I am a senior in college right now, so I have been slowly trying to build up my professional wardrobe. I also think that they are such a great transition piece from Summer to Fall. It's that awkward time where you aren't really sure what to wear. It's too hot (and early) in a lot of places for jeans and sweaters, but it's also late in the season to be wearing floral summer dresses. This is the perfect compromise because they can be worn with pants, skirts, dresses, and even some shorts!


Apartment Inspo + Life Update

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday! I wanted to share with you some apartment inspiration. Can you guess why?? That's right... I'm moving!  I am still staying in Savannah however, I am getting ready to move into a new apartment and I am so excited! Once my room is decorated I will do a full post so you all can see the finished product.

I already have a bedspread (you can probably guess what it looks like) and am now trying to decide the right 'mix' of pillows. I really love the minimalist look with pops of color. Some of my favorite stores that I have looked at are Anthropologie, IKEA, and Urban Outfitters. I already have a few bedroom pieces, but am having a hard time finding a smaller natural wood dresser. I am also looking for some larger woven baskets for my bedroom. I would love recommendations if you have any, send me an email!

My Current Skincare Routine

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Happy Wednesday everyone! I wanted to share with you all my current skincare routine! Clarisonic was kind enough to send me one of their Clarisonic Mia face brushes. I was so excited because I have wanted one for a while. I have struggled with really bad acne for a long time and have a lot of trouble managing it even though I take good care of my skin. A few of my friends (who have beautifully clear skin I might add!) suggested to me trying Clarisonic.

This is the Clarisonic I was sent. I was also gifted their Acne Cleansing Duo and let me be the first to say their acne brush head has made a huge difference. I started using the Mia in the mornings on my skin. After a couple weeks I started noticing a huge difference with the acne on my forehead (one of my problem areas). It is now completely clear and the acne I usually get on my cheeks has hugely improved. I coupled this with my Palmer's Coco Butter Lotion because it is supposed to be good at removing scars and dark marks which acne can frequently cause. Then, before I got to bed I put benzoil peroxide (a common anti-acne treatment) on my face to sleep in. This combination has made a huge difference in my skin and confidence!

Hope you enjoyed, I linked all of the specific products I use! Let me know if you have any questions ;)
