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.

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!

Window Shopping Wants: March

Window Shopping Wants

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

I have been on quite the yellow kick this spring, as you can see from this blog post and this photo. I don’t understand why people say blondes can’t wear yellow, cause I think it looks really good on blondes! And yellow looks even more bright when paired with a pretty blue color, so blue and yellow are the colors that have really been catching my eye during my frequent online window shopping sessions.
