Happy Sweater and Happy Weather

Happy Friday!!! Does anyone have any fun plans for this weekend? Today is my boyfriend’s birthday, so to celebrate he is coming to see me this weekend and I’m going to make him chicken parmesan (his favorite meal) and lemon cheesecake. Not gonna lie, I’m pretty pumped for the meal too hehe. Nothing like using your boyfriend’s birthday as an excuse to carbo-load.

This outfit is my first spring look of the year, and although I already miss my sweaters and jackets, I was really excited with how this outfit turned out. I think the hydrangeas helped! They really tied this whole look together!

This thermal top is a perfect weight to make it a great transition piece between seasons. It is unfortunately sold out in this color, but there are still a lot of colors of it that can be found on sale at a handful of places (all linked under photos)! It would look cute in the fall with jeans and boots, or in the spring with white jeans or front-tucked into denim shorts!

I hope you all have a great weekend! Get pumped for Spring!


Spring Dress Fever

dress one // dress two // dress three // dress four // dress five // dress six // dress seven

Maybe I am a little biased considering that I handpicked all of these to be in this collage, but I am obsessed with all of these dresses. I love fun dresses with bright colors, tassels, and pom poms. Oh, and I am still a sucker for anything off the shoulder. Everyone else is probably over these trends, but they are still making frequent appearances in my shopping cart.

Anyone else feeling the need to get super tan after seeing all of these models in these dresses? Lol me and you both.


My Favorite Jacket (40% Off!)

Hello!!! Another week is upon us! I’m pretty sure I say something along those lines every Monday. Sorry, I will try to start being more creative with my introductions.

Anyways, I am sad to say that this is my last fall/winter related outfit of the season. I am so sad. Fall and winter fashion is my absolute favorite. I love the sweaters, the jackets, the layering…the ability to hide my thighs under the cover of denim. It’s just a sad time for me, but I have to look on the bright side. Spring and summer shoes are the BOMB.

This jacket is 40% off right now and goes in and out of stock all of the time because it sells out so much. It is amazing though, I cannot recommend it enough. BLANKNYC has amazing jackets every year, and I have this jacket in the black leather version, which I wore in this post, and now in this suede version. I will probably get another one of their jackets next fall too, because that’s how much I love them. You can make a ton of different outfits with these jackets, and I always look for versatility in things that I buy. So if you have been thinking about this jacket, I would suggest getting it now while it’s on sale! You won’t regret it!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Get ready for a lot of spring content on my blog starting this week! The heat and humidity are coming, my friends! Do you hear that…? That’s the sound of my hair weeping. #NoMoreGoodHairDays


Red Roses

Valentine’s Day is just a couple days away, so I decided to go for full Bachelor vibes and take pictures with a bouquet of roses! What can I say? Flowers make the best photo shoot props.

This outfit consists entirely of pieces I’ve owned for awhile, so that’s why I’ve linked so many similar products. Sometimes you just have to work with what you’ve got! But this outfit is really simple and easy to recreate. All you need is your favorite white top, favorite pair of jeans, and a simple black heel! If you prefer to go for a more neutral Valentine’s Day look, as opposed to a bunch of pink and red, this would be a great outfit for you.

Do y’all have any fun plans for Valentine’s Day? It’s a bummer it’s on a weekday this year. My boyfriend and I will be a state apart, so I’ll just be spending the day missing him! Maybe I’ll buy myself a clearance bag of candy. As if it wasn’t already hard enough for me to pass up chocolate, the pink packaging sucks me in even more. I’m such an easy target for holiday marketing, let me tell ya.


Pink Ruffle Sleeves

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week! Any fun plans for this weekend? No fun plans on the Hayley front- just work and homework. My favorite kinds of weekends! (If you didn’t read that sentence with a sarcastic tone, you read it wrong.)

Isn’t this sweater adorable? I love how sweet and feminine the ruffles on the shoulders are. The ruffles make enough of a statement that you don’t have to do much in terms of styling, so just a pair of jeans and booties worked for me. But I think I would love it even more with white jeans and wedges once it starts to get warmer! P.S. It comes in grey too, if you aren’t a pink gal.

I hope you all have a great weekend! Before I sign off, I have been working hard the past few weeks to start planning spring content for March, and I would love to get feedback on what you all would like to see! Are there any specific outfits for spring you would like to see? Do you find my outfit collages helpful? Or would you like to see more beauty content? I value your feedback so much, so it would mean so much to me to hear from y’all! If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave a comment on this post or on one of my Instagram photos!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a pretty good weekend. My boyfriend came to Charleston to visit me, and we took a ton of blog photos and I cooked us dinner. I made us meatloaf…I’ve never really liked meatloaf, but Juan does, and I hadn’t had it in years, so I thought it would be a nice easy dish to make us. I gave it a go, and it is now confirmed that I officially do not like meatloaf. That’s what I get for not following my heart when it’s telling me, “Just make spaghetti.”

This outfit is one that I’ve had planned for a month, but had tweaked and changed it several times before I finally came to the final look. I decided at the last minute to add a hat to it, and take away a jacket, and in the end, I really like the way the look came together. It’s a great, fun outfit for Valentine’s Day if you aren’t going anywhere too fancy!

I hope you all are having a great start to your week! I’ve been trying to go running more, because no matter what the groundhog said, I live in Charleston and will probably be forced to wear a bathing suit within a matter of weeks *weeps as I put sweaters into storage.* So I’m getting ready to go running today! I can guarantee I will be thinking about donuts with every step.
