Hey folks! It’s officially my last day of class before spring break! Tomorrow I head to Arkansas with my dad to visit my sweet ol’ grandparents. It will be a short trip, but I’m excited! On the way there, my dad and I are gonna spend the night in Memphis so we can eat some barbecue and he can show me around the city where he and my mom met and got engaged. It will be nice to have some father-daughter time! I also bought three true crime books on Amazon to read on the trip, so it will be interesting to see how many people at the airport I weird out with my literal stack of books about profiling serial killers. You know me, I like to keep it light! 😉

This outfit is a little different than what I normally wear, but I thought it was too fun not to share (also, excuse my frizzy hair in these pictures)! I am in love with this t-shirt. I mean, look at Monica, Phoebe, and Rachel being all cute. I contemplated buying this shirt for two weeks before I finally pulled the trigger. It is now the greatest t-shirt I own haha. I get happy as soon as I put it on. If you enjoy novelty t-shirts like me, or if you are an avid Friends fan, you should definitely own this shirt too.

I hope you are all having a great week so far!! Spring break, hurry up!!! …Seriously though, hurry up. I’m running out of patience.

Hello, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was a little meh. I’ve just been feeling pretty overwhelmed lately with everything I’ve had going on between work, interning, and school (*cough* group projects *cough*). Feeling so stressed and overwhelmed is never fun, but I have a lot to look forward in the next few months (THANKSGIVING DINNER!!!!! CHRISTMASSSS!!!!!!) so I’m trying to focus on that. My boyfriend is coming to see me this weekend, and I am so excited about that! He always brings the joy, so that should take some stress away. Also, when he comes to town that means its blog photo shoot time, so you can expect a lot of cute looks in the next few months!

This outfit is probably one of my top three favorites that I’ve done on the blog so far. I’ve been obsessed with hats for fall this year. I think that they make an outfit look instantly more stylish. I’ve been obsessed with sweaters this fall too. Which I know isn’t exactly shocking, but I’ve been more drawn to them than usual. Nordstrom really just needs to stop making cute ones. Throw some argyle out there or something and maybe my sweater obsession will cease. This sweater paired with the hat and white jeans just looks so crisp to me, and I felt very “cool” when I wore this outfit. I understand that me saying I felt cool totally negates any coolness I may have actually possessed, but it was a nice feeling.

Also, I’ve gone to Starbucks five times in a row the past couple weeks and they’ve been out of colored fall cups every time, hence the boring white cup in these pictures. Come on, Starbucks! I love you, but you need to give the people what they want!

It finally felt like fall in Charleston yesterday and I finally felt complete. It wasn’t humid, my car didn’t feel like an oven after sitting in the parking lot all day, and the whole day was just incredible. I blasted Kenny G Christmas music on the way to work and teared up a little. No lie. (Oh Kenny, you saxaphoning fox)

Since it felt so great and cool outside, of course I had to seize the day and shoot a couple of my more toasty outfits, this outfit being one of them. I love a good fur vest, and I’m really glad that they’ve stayed in style for the past four years or so. They really add so much to what could be an otherwise plain outfit. Also, this top is super great. It comes in six different colors, both bright, fun colors, and a couple of great neutrals like black and tan. It’s a great basic that could be styled a ton of different ways.

I hope you all are having a great week! Nothing special going on in Hayley Land. Just more work, and school, and work, and some more school. Oh, and I’m watching the whole series of Friends for like the eighth time so I guess that’s pretty exciting…

Fall-ing For Light Pink

Happy Eclipse Day, everyone! Especially my fellow Charleston locals! I am so looking forward to clawing my way through the estimated million (!!!) of tourists here to see the eclipse. I mean, what could make a work day any better?? *Read the last two sentences with a tone of off-the-charts sarcasm.*

To help make this day a little easier to swallow, I am posting an adorable transition outfit, plus a little gift for you all (continue reading for more details). I know it’s only August, 90 degrees outside, and feels like you’re swimming in a fish tank every time you step outside, but no, you are not hallucinating when you look at these pictures. I am actually wearing boots. And lined boots, at that. Where do I pick up my trophy? I am beyond ready for fall. Like to infinity and beyond ready for fall. I need the holidays, and most importantly, I need cooler weather. My hair can’t take this humidity anymore. It misses the brisk fall and winter days when it stayed pretty all day, and didn’t lose it’s curl from me walking outside just to check the mail. And finally, I need to wear all of my fall clothes! I miss my boots, my sweaters, and my leggings!! So that’s why I’m bringing you a transition outfit this week. I just can’t wait any longer!

In this look, you get the colors and textures of summer, with the shoes of fall. This top is nice and airy, and doesn’t make you feel too hot. And it’s almost Labor Day, so we have to wear our white jeans while we still can (not that I abide by that rule much to begin with). These boots add a nice touch of the upcoming fall months we have upon us, and you could easily trade out the white jeans in this look for regular blue jeans if you want to carry it later into September.

And like I mentioned above, I have a little gift for you all! An online accessories store called ILYMIX, reached out to me and gave me a 20% off discount code to give to you! I ordered a pair of sunglasses from them a few weeks ago, and I was really pleased with what I received in the mail. I’m wearing the sunglasses I ordered in the pictures above! I wasn’t sure what to expect of the quality, just because they have such low prices, but the sunglasses are honestly really sturdy and high quality, and the metal frames aren’t flimsy or feel like they will break like some similar sunglasses I own. So not only are their prices affordable, but they give you a quality product too! The best of both worlds! Of course I ordered the pink pair to perfectly match my top, but they also have pairs that come in neutral colors like gold and silver too! It’s the perfect place to get trendy sunglasses on a budget. ILYMIX also carries really cute beanies and blanket scarves for fall (I love this beaded beanie, and this classic blanket scarf!), so I will definitely be snagging up some of those when it starts to get chilly! Just enter the code HOH20 at checkout to get 20% off your order!

I hope you all enjoyed this look, and are doing something fun for the eclipse! I’ll be at work in the center of it all…please pray for me!

Bows on Bows

Here I am with another post! Just a couple more weeks of freedom this summer, until the school weeks begin. I can’t say I’m too excited about that, but I am excited about this outfit! I love me some bows. Big bows, small bows, all bows. They are the perfect feminine and fun addition to any clothing piece. When I saw these shoes I about died. They come in red too, and I’m probably gonna need to go to the beach and throw my wallet in the ocean to keep myself from buying them. I paired these bow shoes with this adorable top that has a bow on the back, because why not? Too much, perhaps? Hey, at least I’m not wearing a bow in my hair. I do have my limits, you know?

As I’m posting this, I’m currently moved into my new apartment, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve decided that I will definitely do a bedroom tour once it is fully decorated! I am by no means an expert on, or even slightly skilled at, interior decorating, but I think it will be fun to share! Have a great week everybody!
