Pumpkins Patches and Hayrides

It's been a whirlwind of a month and I am still in shock it's already November! Before we know it, it will be will Christmas and I'll have made it through my first semester at college. Where did the time go?! Wasn't I just moving in yesterday?

 I was walking through the mall this past Saturday with some friends and we were utterly amazed that they already had the Santa scene up and little kids were lined up around the corner to take pictures with Santa and tell him what was on their Christmas list. A little too soon if you ask me....

Here's a little summary of what I have been up to lately!

For fall break my roommate and a hallmate of ours, and me of course, all went on a road trip back to my house in Raleigh! It was so much fun being home and even more fun being able to introduce my new friends to my old friends! We savored every home-cooked meal and cherished every moment we spent sitting on the couch watching stupid reality TV shows. It's the little things you miss the most!




A few Fridays ago we left right after class and headed to Ashville to do a little hiking and enjoy the fall weather. The view from up top was absolutely breathtaking and we took a million and one pictures. It was nice to get off campus and explore the mountains!





In the spirit of Halloween a few of us drove to a farm right near Clemson and had a blast getting lost in the corn maze, eating s'mores by a campfire, and going on a hayride. The best way to spend a fall Saturday night if you ask me!






What have you been up to lately??

Don't forget,

The Month of PINK

I know it’s kinda late in the month (better late than never right?), but October is breast cancer awareness month.  Since it’s all about wearing pink to show support, I picked some of my favorite pink fall things!

I honestly wear pink almost every day of the week, so this was easy for me! I know typically when you think of fall you think of oranges, reds, and browns, but who says you can’t incorporate some pink in your everyday outfit!



Remember,

She Never Leaves the House Without Earrings


I have many fears, but leaving the house without earrings is definitely a up there (probably in the top ten). Sounds silly right? But seriously, there is nothing worse for me than walking out without earrings. It’s just a bad omen to start the day. Honestly, the thought of being in public without earrings sends shivers down my spine. Its not that I am exceedingly vane, but even in shorts and a tee, earrings are a mandatory accessory.  I’m really not sure why something so small bothers me so much, but I guarantee if you ever spot me without earrings, something must be tragically wrong!

I may or may not have an extra set of pearls that I keep in my car just in case.

Most days you will find me with these pearl studs, simple, yet classy. They match everything and I don’t have to worry about them irritating my ears. But recently, I have been feeling more adventurous with my earrings. I’m not really into hanging earrings so I usually just stick to studs (I know, I sound like I’m 10). These are a few of my favorite studs right now. 



Pearls | Like I said, my go to earring. I can probably be spotted in these pearl studs 95% of the time. This pair doesn’t irritate your ears, if you have sensitive ears like me, and they have a gold back, which is my absolute favorite. When in doubt, go with pearls.

Kate Spade | Kate Spade always has some of my favorite studs. They are so whimsical and can add so much to an outfit! I love wearing them on those days when I have to just throw my hair up because I can assure they’re seen and not hidden behind my hair!

Moon & Lola | One of my favorite brands! They are based in my hometown and I have loved watching them grow over the past few months! They really specialize in monograms so of course I had to pick their pink monogram studs.

Swell Caroline | I own these earrings and I absolutely love them! They are a little dressier because of the diamond accents inside the starfish, perfect for a night out on the town! They make me miss the beach, and serve as a little reminder of summer.

Kiel James Patrick | Anchors have always been something I’m obsessed with. So, anchors, navy, and studs, I mean could it get any better?? I’d say around 1/4th of my wardrobe is navy so they literally go with just about any outfit I wear! 

What are your go to earrings? 

Remember, 

xoxo
