Happy Tuesday, everybody!!! Today is a very happy day for me because it’s my last day of class before finals, which basically means freedom! It’s such a relief to have all of my projects turned in, and presentations completed. Now I can start getting into the mindset of a glorious, due-date-free summer.

Let’s talk about this top! I bought this top when I took a day-trip to Savannah, Georgia a month ago, and I just thought it was so cute. I have been really into blue and white stripes lately (I have about 5 dresses and tops that have blue and white stripes, so I should probably chill out), but this top has black stripes too, so I thought, “It’s different, I might as well!” (I really like to grasp at straws when I’m trying to justify purchases…). I love how the ties on the shoulders add a fun touch to your typical off-the-shoulder top, and add a little something different to the trend that we are so used to seeing, yet never stop loving.

I definitely plan on getting some use out of this top throughout the summer, perhaps by making it more casual with white shorts and some metallic sandals! One thing I felt that I was missing when I put together the outfit, was some fun earrings, but I didn’t want to wear dangly earrings, so I thought a fun ear jacket would be perfect for this top! That’s something I’ll add to my summer wish list, for sure!

I am so excited for summer because I will have more time to invest in this blog and really work on creating what I envision. Thank you so much for reading. It means so much to me!

If you’re looking for an outfit to wear for a date night, a GNO, or just feel like over-dressing to go wandering around your neighborhood like me, this outfit is perfect for you. This top is so comfortable, but really cute at the same time with its ruching and off-the-shoulder sleeves. I think the ruching is what sets it apart from other off-the-shoulder tops that I own. I paired it with white jeans and heels for this post, but it could also be styled with some denim shorts and metallic gladiators for a more laid-back look.

The earrings are my favorite part of this outfit! I usually only wear studs for everyday, but I think I am going to start delving into statement earrings for the spring and summer. They just add a nice pop of color, or a fun shape, to an outfit, and there are some really fun ones out right now, like these, and these. A fun piece of jewelry is perfect if you’re feeling a little spunky!

I hope y’all are having a great start to your week! Leave a comment below to let me know what you think of this outfit, or any suggestions you may have for me. Keep checking back once a week for a new post!

Jeans as White as Snow in March

This light and fresh spring outfit is just perfect for the snow and 45-degree weather that some of us got a couple of days ago, huh? I mean, who doesn’t love building a snowman in open-toed heels and an off-the-shoulder blouse? Well luckily there are warmer temperatures and brighter days ahead, and those are the kind of the days this outfit is meant for. Whether it’s a date night, or galavanting around with your gal pals, a simple jeans-and-a-top look can go a long way.

The top I’m wearing is a little more peach in person than it comes off in photos, which is why a lot of the similar tops I linked below are more of a peach/coral color. I love how soft and feminine the top is, and it’s good that I wore this outfit to a dinner, since I eat like a man (lol) and anything that makes me appear more ladylike is a plus for me!

The great thing about this outfit is that it can be dressed up like it is in the post, or it can be worn more casually, with some denim shorts, sandals, and a cute brim hat, for instance.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Now I’m going to go curl up on my couch in a giant sweatshirt and fuzzy socks, because I don’t think that a blouse and heels will help me survive this chilliness!
