Another week is upon us my friends, and I’m already ready for the weekend. I hate rushing my life away like that, but I can’t help it! I just got back from a fun weekend in Charlotte, but as always, it went by way too fast. I just need school to be finished so I can move there and get to see my boyfriend and my family all the time!

This is one of my new favorite outfits, and I felt so confident when I was wearing it the other day. If you follow me on Instagram, you can probably tell that I am absolutely obsessed with these jeans. I wore them three times over the weekend because I guess I’m disgusting? I just think they make any outfit look instantly more stylish. I wore them with just a plain tank top and sweater on Saturday, and felt like I looked so much more put together and fashionable than if I had just been wearing normal skinny jeans. Also, the lavender of this thermal is one of my new favorite colors of this spring. The thermal is so comfortable and light weight though, and comes in six colors!

I hope you all are having a great start to week! We can get through it! Well…maybe y’all can. I’m barely making it through and it’s only Monday.

Hello friends! How was your Easter weekend? I can’t believe that Easter has already passed. This year is just flying by. How can I get school to go by quickly, but get every other moment to slow down?

I wore this outfit a couple weeks ago when I was in Memphis with my dad over spring break. I had planned to take cute blog photos in it around Memphis, especially in front of Sun Studio where Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash recorded songs. But unfortunately when my dad and I went to go take pictures, not only was the sky super dreary and grey, but it was extremely windy too. I couldn’t get one cute shot because the wind would be blowing my hair in some whacky direction. And because I have no patience and get easily frustrated when taking blog pictures (Fun Fact: It’s my least favorite part of the entire blog process), I finally gave up because I knew it was a waste of our time. I ended up having zero curl left in my hair after the excursion. My boyfriend ended up taking these pictures for me when I got back to Charlotte. I wish they could be cute Memphis photos for y’all!

I am really enjoying the neck scarf trend right now, and I really like what they add to an outfit! I feel like I look trendy and classic at the same time when I wear them, if that makes any sense. Do you remember my romper from this post? I plan on wearing the neck scarf with it, and I think it will look so cute!

I hope you are all having a fantastic week! I am very excited for the next couple months because I have some really cute outfits planned for you all!

Hi folks! I hope you all are doing well! I am so excited to be posting this top, because it has been one of my favorite purchases of the past month! It is so vibrant and fun all on its own, and that makes putting together an outfit with it so easy. This outfit really required no effort, just throwing on some jeans and shoes, but with this top I felt really put-together! And it’s under $40 so, what more do I need to say?

What are your plans for Easter weekend?? My boyfriend is coming to see me this weekend so we are going to do what we do best…eat! I am making us an Easter dinner, so I’m gonna cook pineapple-barbecue meatballs, jalapeño creamed corn, sweet potato casserole, and these little birds nest cookies that are so stinkin’ cute!!! It’s going to be a great weekend! I get to see my man and I get to eat good food! I hope you all have a fantastic holiday with your friends and family!

And just like that, spring break is over. I am not ready to be back at school. But I’m trying to look on the bright side, because the fact that spring break is over means I am a little bit closer to being done with this semester. Since I got back to Charleston from spring break, I have been in a bit of a funk. Do you ever feel like you’re falling behind in several parts of your life? That’s how I’ve been feeling. I feel like schoolwork is reaching the point in the semester when it’s nothing but overwhelming and I just want to be finished with it all. Also, during the couple months before break, I had gotten into the habit of running multiple times per week, and it started to become a big part of my routine. But while I was gone for break I didn’t run or work out at all, and it has taken me few days to get back into the swing of my workout schedule since I’ve been home, and I think it’s been dragging me down emotionally. Same with eating healthy. I try to eat generally pretty healthy when I am in Charleston, but I love food, and it’s not hard for me to fall off the wagon when I am in Charlotte, or when my boyfriend comes to town. Anyways…the point of this whiny tangent was just to say that sometimes we all get in a funk, and that nobody’s life is perfect. When you look on social media, and read luxury style blogs everyday like I do, it’s easy to forget that everyone has bad days. I just want to be transparent on here, and I thought a realistic life update would be more refreshing to read than, “This top is great, you should buy it.” Or maybe it was a huge downer, I don’t know lol.

On a brighter note though, this top really is great…you should buy it (gotta get that plug in). Jokes aside, I really am very pleased with this top. Not only is it a good price, but it’s a very good quality (a thick t-shirt material), and very comfortable. I’m sure you will be seeing me wearing it a lot this spring and summer.

I hope you all are having a great week so far!! I know I will get out of my funk very soon, I think I just need to get back into my normal routine! Thanks for reading to the end, if you managed to make it!
