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.

Happy Tuesday, pals! I am officially about a week and a half away from my summer break. It needs to get here pronto. I find myself constantly struggling between rushing the days away so I can be free of school for four months, and also not wanting my assignment and final deadlines to sneak up on me. But I think I will settle for rushing the days away lol. I need summer pronto.

This dress is a new favorite in my closet, and it is so feminine and sweet! It would be such a cute dress for Mother’s Day, for either a daughter or mother! I normally wear very straight-fitting dresses, but ever since I got this dress, I am finding myself looking more and more for fit and flare cuts.

I have the day off today, and I am treating myself to a trip to Ulta! I have some products that I am running low on, but I was up late last night looking at different products I’d like to try out. I am obviously very talented at managing my time in a productive way (have a 10-page paper due on Monday, but spent a good two hours browsing the Ulta site…). Do y’all have any makeup or skincare recommendations? If you do, feel free to send them my way, and be enablers in my procrastination! I think tomorrow I will do a haul on Insta Stories with everything I get! If you want to see, follow me on Instagram here.

I hope you are all having a fantastic start to your week!

FREE PEOPLE Top // PAIGE Jeans // SAM EDELMAN Heels // LISI LERCH Earrings

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.

LOFT Top (30% off today!) // J. CREW Jeans // SAM EDELMAN Shoes // LISI LERCH Earrings

Happy Monday!!! How was your weekend? My dad came to see me this weekend and we had so much fun! We went to see a comedy show, went to church, and had some amazing food. If you are a Charleston local, or are visiting Charleston soon, you should check out EVO Pizza. It was freaking amazing. Their pizza crust is a thin crust, but it’s really soft, not crispy like most thin crusts. It was heavenly. I recommend the pistachio pesto pizza.

I posted this outfit on Instagram twice last week and everyone went crazy for it! I got this top for half price when Loft was having their Easter sale, and I’m so glad I did. It is so comfortable, and just a really classy top. I took these blog pictures right after church a couple weeks ago, and I thought the outfit was perfect for church. I also think the top could be styled in a way that would make it very business professional as well, maybe with some tailored navy straight leg pants and nude heels.

Also, if you haven’t seen my teeth whitening post from last week, there’s still time to enter the Smile Brilliant giveaway! Click here to enter!

I hope you all had a great weekend! This is my last week of class (not counting finals that are in a couple weeks), and I am ready to be finished. I need a four month-long summer break asap.

Red Dress Boutique Top (another cute similar style here) // J. Crew Jeans // Sam Edelman Shoes // Lisi Lerch Earrings

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!
