Woohoo!!! It’s the weekend!! I literally just got back from the beach, and let’s just say that I am a tad burned haha. Not too bad though, so hopefully it fades to a bronze! At least we can hope! But it was seriously the perfect day at the beach on Sullivan’s Island. The weather was gorgeous, and there was a breeze the whole time so I didn’t feel too hot. My friend and I also went and got chicken salad sandwiches and lemonade at this cafe on the beach too. Such a great day! Now I am just waiting on my parents to get here because they are visiting me this weekend (and also procrastinating on cleaning before they get here too hehe)!

This top is so cute and it’s on sale!!! It’s so easy to just throw on and go. And I am also obsessed with my earrings. I loved them so much that I went and got them in another color! When they are only around $7, why not??

I hope you all have a great memorial day weekend!! And hopefully the rain chills out. I don’t know about you, but I would really like to see sunshine on my weather app for once!!!

Hello!!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! My boyfriend, Juan, came to visit me this weekend and we had a great time together (like that’s anything new though *I say as I giggle and blush like a giddy school girl*). I worked most of the time that he was here, but we would rather get to see each other for a little bit than not at all!

Also another random thought, I found out last week that you can get your fries well-done at Chick-fil-A. I hate when I get fries from there and they are all soft and mushy. But when you get them well-done, they are guaranteed to be crisp! It’s amazing! To say that this newfound knowledge has changed my life wouldn’t exactly be a lie.

Okay, now onto the actual purpose of this post. These blog pictures turned out to be some of the best I’ve taken in a long time! I just love this outfit! It’s really stylish, but still so comfortable. I borrowed this top from my mom’s closet, and it’s currently on sale for over 40% off! Also, I know these jeans are really expensive (I got them through my job), but if you are looking for a great investment pair of jeans, these are amazingggg. They are so soft and comfortable, and the subtle rips throughout are the perfect touch. I love them!!!

I am wishing you all a great rest of your week! And if you try your Chick-fil-A fries well-done let me know!

Yellow Dress With the BEST Denim Jacket

Hello, pals!!! I want to start off by apologizing for how pale I am in this post haha. What do you do when you hate being pale, hate laying out, and also hate using self tanner? What I usually end up doing is staying pale, and then complaining about how pale I am to everyone that will listen (that is an over-exaggeration, but you get the point). Anyways, hopefully by the end of this summer I will be a bronze goddess, but we shall see.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this yellow dress in one of the try-on sessions that I did on my Stories. For those of you that didn’t see it, I love everything about this yellow dress except for one thing, and that thing is that the dress is completely backless. If I had a slim, toned back, this wouldn’t be a problem, but this is not something that I possess, so I am not a huge fan of the backless look. This is such a shame, because everything else about this dress is so flattering, and it is so light and airy! To fix the backless issue, I paired my new favorite denim jacket with it, and alas! My problem was solved! This jacket is AMAZING, let me just tell you that. It comes in two other washes, and is $39.99. I can’t recommend this jacket enough. It is really amazing quality, and for such a good price. I am also really glad that I got it in the lighter wash as well, but I definitely plan on getting it in one of the darker washes eventually!

I hope you are all having a good week so far! I am headed to Charlotte tomorrow for a very long weekend and I am so so so so so so excited!!! I get to see my boyfriend, my family, and all four of my dogs! I haven’t been home in forever, so I really am so happy to finally be heading there. My trips home are also my time to be extra stylish, because I can finally wear clothes that aren’t work clothes or athleisure, so you know that I already have all of my outfits picked out. Follow me on Instagram if you want to see what I wear everyday! Have a great week!

The Sunniest Yellow Dress

Alright, folks. Let’s cut to the chase. This dress is fantastic. I really don’t know what more I need to say about it. I mean, do you see it? It’s gingham. It’s embroidered. It has ruffle sleeves. It’s the color of sunshine. It’s flowy so you can eat in it. Do you really want me to keep rambling on?

This dress also comes in black, navy, and red — and believe me, if I could afford to purchase it in another color, I would! But sometimes I have to take a step back and calmly say to myself, “Hayley, I don’t know who you think you are that you think you can actually afford to buy this dress in another color. You are aware you pay your own bills right?” After that tough-love session with myself, I am able to come to my senses, and slowly (but not without hesitation), put my credit card back in my wallet.

Are y’all having a swell week so far? Any fun plans for the weekend? Right now, I am writing this post as a way to procrastinate on the 10-page paper I have due on Monday. Also, right before I started typing the sentence you are reading right now, I had just taken a 10-minute “break” from writing this post to look at earrings on Baublebar. I’m procrastinating on my procrastination….Lord, help me.

Hello!!! I am super excited about today’s post because I am obsessed with this outfit! First of all, if you’ve been paying close attention, you can probably tell that I wear these jeans all…the…time. They are most definitely a splurge, but I can go on and on about how worth it they are. First of all, they are really high waisted which makes them so comfortable, and they hug the hips perfectly, especially if you are more curvy like myself. And the fringe on the bottom is just adorable. These jeans have turned me into a total jean connoisseur, and I am now constantly on the hunt for good pairs.

Also, this top is a stunner. The color is amazing, and I love all of the detail on it, from the structure of the sleeves, to the eyelet detail. It also comes in a light blue color (which my mom bought for herself and that I am definitely borrowing), and white!

I hope y’all are doing so well!!! My boyfriend is coming to see me this weekend, so I’m just over here crawling to the weekend. Seriously…I’m crawling.
