Amazing, Affordable, & Adorable Amazon Finds

I am an Amazon addict. 

It was especially convenient when I was at school and would go a week or so without leaving campus. I would order simple things I needed and could just pick them up at our school mail room! It was always amusing to see how many other Amazon boxes were sitting on the selves and comforting to know I wasn't the only one addicted. 

They seriously make it way too easy with that one click order button! Besides the typical toiletries and snacks I order Amazon really does have some super fun products. I am way too guilty of ordering last minutes gifts for people and costumes for school events. That free 48 hour shipping has saved me too many times. 





Everything Ginger Jar

It's no secret that I have a blue and white obsession. My go to outfit is always a navy and white striped shirt and I live by the motto "navy or nothing". It probably obvious through most of my outfits and definitely in my apartment decor

Going right along with my love for blue and white is my affinity with all things ginger jars. I feel like just about everyone is obsessed with the jars and they're totally trending right now. Which is a little funny, because in reality, they're just jars and have been around for forever. But I've hopped on the bandwagon and love them just as much as the next preppy girl. Home Goods and Target is filled with blue and white jars right now which is perfect timing considering I'm hunting for affordable decor for my new apartment.

I promise you one thing, there will be no shortage of blue and white in my new apartment.

Shades of Blue

Happy Eclipse Day everyone! I hope everyone has their glasses ready!

After helping move my brother into his sophomore dorm room at College of Charleston I drove to Columbia to spend a few days with Emory before school starts for him. Luckily for me, Columbia is in the path of totality so hopefully, we'll have a great view of this once and a lifetime event.

It's funny to me how into it everyone is. Businesses are closing early, special t-shirts have been made to commemorate the event, and black cupcakes and donuts are being sold in the grocery stores. Maybe it's just because we're in the totality path but I love everyone's excitement!!


Anyways, onto the outfit. I picked out this shirt when I was at the J. Crew Factory outlet and it's going to be perfect for school. It's nice because it can be easily paired with jeans or shorts and can be transitioned for a cooler weather with a simple jean jacket thrown over. PLUS it's only $35!! Serious steal.

AND THE BACK.....ridiculously cute.

The car is packed and we're off to Charleston this early morning to take my brother to his sophomore year of college! Oh how I can't wait to help move him into his dorm room Saturday morning in the Charleston heat! Luckily, like most boys, he brought nowhere near the amount of stuff I bought to college so the move in process should be a lot faster.

After we finishing moving him in on Saturday I'm headed west to Columbia to spend the weekend with Emory before he starts school next week and to see the eclipse! I'm excited to see his new apartment and get to spend some time together before law school takes over his life.

Last week I got to help my mom and decorate my youngest brother's senior year parking spot for the first day of school! I still can't believe he's a senior in high school!!

What's on my radar...

I feel like there have been so many new country songs out recently! I've had this one, this one, this one, this one, and this one on repeat.

I've talked about this top + skirt set on instagram stories and in a blog post but I'm seriously obsessed.

Slightly over the top 1st birthday party but too adorable not to share.

Fingers crossed this means there won't be such a long wait after you order bean boots.

Tuckernuck released some pieces from their Fall collection and I'm swooning.

Happy Friday!!




My J.Crew Wishlist

Once again J. Crew hits it out of the park. But at this point, are we even surprised?

I'm starting to think I need to get a job in one of their retail stores to get an employee discount. But then I fear I would probably spend my whole paycheck on clothes. They just released some of their new Fall pieces and my cart is already full. 

Skirt | Top 

Okay this may be my absolute favorite. I don't have any formal events coming up anytime soon but I think I may need to get it just in case one pops up, ya know?! If I were back in high school again, this is what I would wear to prom. STUNNING. 

I mean really, can you ever go wrong with a bow on the back of a sweater? I think not. I think this is exactly what I need to make me excited for Fall. 

Those details though!! It doesn't get super cold in Savannah but on crisp Fall and Winter mornings, I think this would be perfect with jeans.

I think bell sleeves are going to be really in this fall. And you know I can't resist anything navy and white, so basically it's a no brainer. 

The ruffle, the gingham, one-shoulder....irresistible. 

If I designed my ideal pair of shorts, this would be it. Navy and white stripes and a bow, they scream me. 

While I don't think this is very Fall-y, I still think it's adorable. 

I just think this skirt could be perfect for so many occasions. Dressy enough for work but casual enough for a backyard barbeque. 

I'm obsessed with J.Crew's athletic wear and these shorts are on the top of my wishlist

I love the blush color (plus the bows of course).

I think I need this for my future work wardrobe. 

What's your favorite piece??




Kate Spade Surprise Sale!

It's like Christmas every time I see an email announcing a Kate Spade Surprise Sale pop up in my inbox! 

I really don't like to buy anything from Kate Spade that's full price because it seems like things constantly go on sale and you can end up getting pieces for a huge steal. I visited the Kate Spade outlet when I was in Hilton Head last week and saw a lot of what's included in the sale, in the outlet store. And let me say, it's going to be hard to resist myself.

Buy fast though, sizes sell out fast and the sale only lasts until August 19th at 11:59 PT!! 

My Top Six: 

1. I bought this dress last week at the outlet and think it will be a great future work dress.
2. This is the watch I wear literally EVERY DAY and it's on sale for less than $140!!!
3. I have this and I keep it in my bathroom with different medicines that I always keep on hand. 
4. I was so close to buying this shirt at the outlet. Too cute.
5. Classy with a twist...very tempted. Two words: cut outs.
6. Obsessed with this dress and the price, it's only $59!!!!!!!!!!

Navy & White at Target

I've been doing a lot of searching for affordable pieces for my apartment. I didn't have much furniture before (since all my apartments at school have been furnished) and my new apartment is unfurnished so I had a long list of things I had to buy all at once. With so many big things to get (a couch, bed, tv) I've been trying to find affordable pieces that I still love. 

I've found multiple things at Target that will be the perfect addition to my little downtown Savannah apartment (I can't wait to share it with you!). I've always been a huge Target fan, I even wrote about it on Instagram this week, but it still surprised me at some of the awesome things you can order on their website!! 

It's so hard to walk into the store and come out empty handed...the dollar section always gets me. But now it's hard to go on the website without ordering something!! I'm obsessed with all this blue and white and you'll definitely be seeing some of it in my new apartment!
