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!!!

Happy Monday, everyone!! I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day! Thankfully, I have been in Charlotte all weekend, so I was lucky enough to get to spend the day with my mom.  I cooked a huge dinner for her yesterday, with the help of grilling duties from my dad. My dad grilled steaks, and I cooked chipotle shrimp skewers with grilled pineapple, grilled asparagus, stuffed mushrooms (which are always a HUGE hit), knock-off Red Lobster biscuits, and white Texas sheet cake. Geez, I’m feeling fat just thinking about it haha. I LOVE to cook, and any excuse I have to cook for others, I will take it. Not to brag or anything, but I outdid myself in the kitchen yesterday lol.

How perfectly does this outfit go with this yellow Charleston house, by the way? That’s the best part about taking blog pictures in Charleston. There’s so many options for scenic photos, and you can walk just a few houses down and get a totally new location. The thing that isn’t good about photo shoots in Charleston, though? The humidity. I feel like the humidity has really held off the past couple months, but alas, it has arrived. Man, I’m really looking forward to months and months of bad hair days (#sarcasm)!

I hope you all had a great weekend, and also a great week ahead of you! I have some really cute outfits coming to the blog this month that I can’t wait to share, so stay tuned! And if you have any recommendations for posts you would like to see, please let me know!

Blue and White Striped Top for 30% off

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.

Accessorizing With a Neck Scarf

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!

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!
