FriYAY!

FriYAY!


Happy Friday everyone!

I finally got to see my apartment this week and move some things in. We made a very quick down on Sunday with a very full car and unloaded all of my kitchen, bathroom, and bedding.  It made me excited move in my furniture in at the end of summer and start decorating!! 

There are some super fun things on my radar so make sure you scroll down to read!

Did you hear the news?!?! Society Social is getting a HGTV show and I am dying. Make sure to follow along on their Instagram account because they have been sharing some sneak peeks. 

If you haven't figured it out yet I'm totally a country music fan. Have you heard Hunter Hayes' new song?

Trying to restrain myself from buying this dress

I did it. I listened to my first full podcast this week! My mom and I listened to S-Town on our way to Savannah and really liked it!

Okay found this new blog and want to make every recipe they have ever posted. 



The sweetest friendship + Chick-fil-A= my heart exploding

I have my eye on these scalloped side tables!

This board game is supposed to be really fun for groups of people.

Summer Hats

Summer Hats

Does anyone else have a problem with their scalp getting burnt?!

I'm really good about wearing sunscreen on my face and even on the rest of my body when I know I'm going to be out in the sun for a long period of time but I always end up with a burnt scalp more specifically my part area! I brush my hair at the end of the day and I can immediately tell. They need to make sunscreen spray specifically for your hair that doesn't make it sticky and crunchy!

Another easier (and more obvious solution) is a hat! I don't think I'm really a hat person but I really need to get on board with them to avoid getting burnt. I have a variety of hats and a few favorites that I keep on a rotation. I rounded up a few that I have my eye on right now!

P.S. If anyone has a different solution to my sunburn issue please let me know!!

Seersucker & Pom Poms

Seersucker & Pom Poms

Possibly one of my favorite combos....seersucker and pom poms. 

I mean can it get any better than that?! We're currently headed back from a quick trip (too quick) to Hilton Head/ Savannah to unload a car full of kitchen supplies/ bedding/ and some other random things. We filled the car to the brim and dropped it all off in my new apt (!!!) on Monday. I won't officially move in until early September most likely, but it was still fun to see my new place. Pictures to come!!

I bought this dress along for going out to dinner because it's super lightweight and easy to throw a jean jacket over after the sun goes down. Plus it's just so fun!! I have a feeling it will come in handy for hot hot hot Savannah days. 

Plus...the best part about this entire outfit...the dress is under $15 and the purse is under $20!!!!!

Can you believe I'm going to be kind of adult-like and will have my own apartment in Savannah?! It's equally exciting as it is terrifying. While I'm super excited to have my own space I have a feeling that I'll be spending most of my days in the library or in an academic building. But there's no doubt it will be nice to come home to my own space.

Since I'll be a full-time student and will most likely only be there for a year I'm not going to crazy on the decorating (that will have to wait until I have a real job!). However, I am still trying to make the place feel comfortable and feel like me. I'm going to be using a lot of the same things that I've had in my rooms throughout my college years and then I'll have to purchase a few bigger items that I'll need (a couch, a mattress, etc). 

There are definitely ways you can go about decorating a place without breaking the bank. I've been spending a lot of time on Etsy looking at pieces I could decorate with and have stumbled upon SO MANY CUTE THINGS.

FriYAY!

FriYAY!



Another week of summer gone and I'm not okay with it going by so fast. Can we rewind to the beginning of June please?!

This week we did a lot of work preparing for my big move in late August early September. I signed a lease for an apt (!!!!!!!!) and we actually are going down to visit and finish up some paper at the beginning of this week (and staying in Hilton Head YIPPEE). I'm so excited to see the apt in person so I can start envisioning where I want to put everything. I also received my class schedule! It made me nervous, but excited thinking about all cool projects I'll get to work on and all the awesome professor I'll get to learn from. 

In case you haven't been a long time follower, I'll be heading to Savannah in September to start my Masters in Fashion and Luxury Management. I've gotten a few emails asking about my program so I thought I'd link the overview of my program here! Sounds cool right?! I think it will be the perfect way to propel me into the Fashion and Communications industry hopefully next year and begin the career I've been dreaming of!


I've really been interested in podcasts lately. I found these two lists ( 1 | 2 ) that seem to have some really promising ones that I have added to my list!


So excited Scotty released a new song! And the music video is the cutest. 

I cringed watching this Ellen Show episode!!!!!!!

Debating ordering this suitcase. I think it would be a good investment. 

I haven't been able to fall asleep at night so I've been watching this show on Amazon! Too cute!

Ordered this dress this week (adorable) as well as this shirt which I found out runs uber small (I'm going to size up one or two sizes). 

What's new on Netflix. Brb going to watch Moana.

If this happens I will be the first in line to get tickets.

Back To School With PBteen

Back To School With PBteen

Although I may have posted my graduation pictures this week, I still have more school (does it ever end?!) to get through before I enter into the real real world. I start grad school in September at the Savannah College of Art and Design and I'm excited to really focus and learn more about what I love. I actually just received my class schedule yesterday so it's slowly starting to feel more real! 

On top of receiving my schedule I also just signed a lease on an apt! I'll be just about half a mile from the building where a majority of my classes will take place so I'll be biking to most of my classes. Although I have a basket on my bike it's not big enough to hold a bag so I'll definitely stick to what I know and continue using a backpack. They're easier to tote around and fit so much more!

I vividly remember picking out a new backpack for school every year in elementary school and taking so much time analyzing and inspecting every one in the store to make sure I made the right decision. New school supplies (like backpacks) are honestly the best part about going back to school!




PBteen reached out to me to celebrate the back to school season and their new adorable collection of backpacks. And trust me, the one I picked out passes all my inspection. For me (and I think any college student) it's essential to have a generous laptop sleeve since you will most likely be toting it around from class to class. I have a 15" MacBook and it slide in perfectly to the built in sleeve. I also still had room for a couple folders and two binders as well!







And let's be real...the best part of the backpack (besides the adorable pink and navy combo) is THE MONOGRAM. Ugh I can't take the cuteness...plus I mean how adorable will it look on the back of my light pink beach cruiser. The matching pencil case with my monogram fit perfectly on the side of the backpack and luckily with 2 drink pockets, I still had room for a water bottle on the other side.



This post was created in partnership with PBteen but as always all opinions are my own! Thanks PBteen for this opportunity!

Check out the rest of PBteen's adorable backpack line! So many to choose from!


First Day of Summer & National Wear Your Lilly Day!

First Day of Summer & National Wear Your Lilly Day!

Brace yourselves because today is the best day of the year. I would say it's probably right up there with Christmas and my birthday. It's time to put on your sunnies, pull out your flamingo shaped floaty, and eat popsicles all day becauseeeeee IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMERTIME.  

Not only is it the first day of summer but Lilly always celebrates by encouraging everyone to wear their favorite Lilly print. While I would normally stick to something a little more classic (like a shift dress) I spotted this adorable romper when I was in the store the other day and brought it into the dressing room to at least give it a try. 

I loved the pattern but I was a bit nervous because I had tried on a similar romper a few seasons ago and it was just wayyyy to low cut on me and was too long in the torso area. Standing at only 5'1 and having a larger chest it makes it hard to find to find rompers that truly fit without many alterations. This one fit to a T and even has a small snap along the neckline to minimize the amount of cleavage shown. I honestly couldn't believe how much I liked it. 

And now I am in love with it and want to wear it to everywhere. I like how it's a little different than what you would expect but still a classic Lilly look. Ya know?! 

Now grab yourself either a large bowl of ice cream or a popsicle and scroll down for a fun post (and outfit details)!

Pink Ruffles

Pink Ruffles

We're now officially a day away from the official start to summer. 

Which honestly feels likes craziness because it's felt like full blown summer here for the past month. And lucky for us it will last until Septemeber. 

Off the shoulder tops are all the rage recently and I'm all about them in this North Carolina heat. However I get nervous about spending money on trendy pieces like an off the shoulder top when it might go out of style in 2 seasons. So when picking out fun, trendy clothes I like to stick to keep the price point to a minimum. This adorable statement top is under $20 (yes you read that right)! I mean come on does it get better than that?! 

I shared on my instagram story a few days ago that I found my Bamboo bag at TJMAXX!!!! I feel like this bag is all the talk right now but I never felt like I could pull the trigger on a bag over $100 that I realistically didn't need. I saw it out of the corner of my eye right when I walked in and couldn't believe it. Nor the fact that it was $34! So I had to get it right?! So check your local TJMaxx and maybe you could get lucky!

Please ignore the hair frizz in my photos...like I mentioned, Carolina heat is powerful.
