One Last Beach Trip of the Season...

A few weeks ago Emory and I headed down to one of my favorite places on earth, Hilton Head Island! It was kind of a spontaneous trip down as we didn't have anything else planned for the weekend and we figured we might as well take advantageous of this summer weather before the fall weather hits! 

We got great weather and I got to show Emory all around my favorite island. We rode our bikes just about everywhere and spent a ton of time chillin on the beach (poor Emory got stung by a jellyfish!). I figured I'd wear this seersucker top while I had an excuse too and before it comes too fally to wear seersucker (I don't believe in no white/ seersucker after labor day when it's still 90 degrees here!). Plus my top is under $20!!!

It was such a nice, fun, and relaxing beach trip that was a much needed break from school work.

Just the Best Phone Case Ever

I usually pick a phone case and stick with it for a while. I'm not typically someone who constantly changes their case depending on the day. I really loved my old phone case (it was Kate Spade!) but when I discovered these new Jimmy Cases I was instantly in love! I saw that another blogger had talked about them before and I couldn't decide if I wanted to make the change. But when the Jimmy Case company reached out to me seemed like a sign!!

The past 3 years I have carried around a super small mini kate spade wallet that I attach my keys to as well as use it to hold my student ID card. However, I can't tell you the number of times I have called my mom sobbing because I can't find my student ID or in a sheer panic because I accidentally set it down somewhere. With this new case it holds my ID perfectly and this way I never have to worry about it falling out of my wallet (happened once) or randomly setting it down somewhere because I don't have my wallet with me. 

The stretchy pocket on the back is super tight and ensures that nothing will fall out. I usually keep my student ID, a few dollars, and when I go out and don't wanna bring a full purse I'll stick my debit card in there too! So convenient for college students. My brother started his freshman year at College of Charleston this year and I even convinced him to order one!!

See all the colors here! Mine is grey and pink and my brother got the orange and blue one!

One of my favorite seasons is quickly approaching....FOOTBALL SEASON. 

I am constantly looking for comfortable, light, summer dresses that can easily be paired with my boots for game days. While Furman's colors are purple and white, since I'm from the Raleigh area we have always frequented NC State games! This red dress from Julie Brown's new fall collection is the perfect weight for unbearably hot summer days but can also easily be paired with a jacket for cooler fall days that are hopefully around the corner. I love how versatile this dress is and I couldn't be happier with the fit! 

Red isn't typically a color I would pick but I decided to step outside my pink and navy usual and go for something a little bit different! Plus every girl needs at least one bright red dress in their closet anyways, right?! 

Julie Brown's new fall collection is irresistible. Every time I visit their website I find something new that I need! With fall and football season just around the corner, it's the perfect time to invest in a great new piece for fall or better yet game days!

Anyone else as excited for football games as I am?!

The Perfect Clutch

Between sorority and fraternity formals and functions I feel like I'm always searching for a dress for the next event. The one thing I never take into account when planning my formal and function outfits is CLUTCH. I always seem to remember the jewelry, shoes, and dress part but it always comes time for the event and I realize I own not one clutch that even remotely matches what I'm wearing. 

Luckily it's great living in an apt with 3 other girls or even better living on the hall with 40 other girls who all own numerous clutches. Usually, I end up shopping through their closets and borrowing one at the last second and swear to myself that I'm going to buy a clutch or two to add to my collection. I also need to invest in a few great ones for after I graduate and won't be living within 5 feet of all my best friend's closets. 

Toss Designs sent me this simple, but adorable clutch to style and obviously I was in love with the pink color block and little bamboo zipper pull. It's perfect because it matches a majority of my wardrobe (which is either navy or pink!). I brought it to my recent trip to Hilton Head to carry my phone and wallet essentials instead of lugging around my whole purse while walking around!

FDOC! // My Favorite College Memories

My senior year officially starts today. Still wondering where time went. It truly feels like freshman year was just yesterday. I remember my first day of college classes, wondering if I'd ever be able to pass what seemed liked impossible classes, and if I'd ever learn my way around campus. I remember meeting my freshman year roommate for the first time (who has now turned into my roommate of four years!), my first homecoming, and my first college party. 

And now I'm entering into my year of lasts. These last 3 years have gone faster than I ever imagined. It's so weird to me that we're now the oldest on campus and the same age as all those seniors I knew freshman year who just seemed so old. 

In honor of my last year I thought it would highlight my favorite memory from every year! There have been way to many special memories, but I have to say these are some of my absolute favorites that I'll remember forever!

Freshman Year // Bid Day!

Bid Day freshman year was definitely the highlight of my first year at Furman. I was so excited to join a sorority and immediately fell in love with all the girls in my pledge class. I feel like we were such a cohesive diverse group of girls who all value the same thing and we got a long great from the beginning. It was a day of meeting so many new people and non-stop fun. It's funny to look back now  as Panhellenic President on this day and realize that this was just the beginning of my greek life experience.

Sophomore Year // My Birthday!

You only turn 20 once right?! So so so thankful for great friends who woke me up at 4:45 to cherish every second of my birthday and to take me to watch the sunrise. Definitely one of my favorite college memories! My now boyfriend Emory, even made a video of the whole thing!

Junior Year // Studying Abroad

One of my very best college friends and I studied abroad my first-semester junior year in Italy. We got to travel to a different place every weekend and it was a dream (Santorini was probably my favorite!). It was such a fun semester and one that I will definitely never forget.

Lilly Pulitzer After Part School

IT'S THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR. The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is here and you know it's basically Christmas in August. There's not many opportunities to get Lilly Pulitzer on sale so take this opportunity while you can!

Last year you had to get a virtual line before entering the site to avoid the site crashing like it has in numerous previous years. It starts promptly at 8am today and lasts today until Tuesday at 11:59 so get shopping! It's a great way to stock up on summer must-haves before the season ends!  

I suggest setting your alarm, creating or updating your account to make an easier checkout, and checking out fast. Here are some of my favorite picks!

Seersucker Summer

My mom and I had the best little trip down to Hilton Head and Savannah. It was kind of a last minute decision but I'm so glad we ended up going. We got to spend time on the beach, ride our bikes down to harbour town, explore Savannah, and even do a little shopping! We're back from our quick trip and reality has set in. I'm leaving for school on Wednesday so it's crunch time to finish everything on my to-do list and pack everything up! I'm looking back at these photos wishing we were still there...

My new Lauren James seersucker dress was the perfect weight for South Carolina in the summer. I've always been a sucker for seersucker (I even say that in my bio!) so this dress was no exception. The bow in the back is absolutely adorable and probably my favorite part of the dress! I'll take it in every color please! :)
