Happy New Year! Holy cannoli was 2017 a huge and crazy year!! I am so thankful for all of the experiences and adventures that came along in the last year and I cannot wait for what is in store for 2018! I have a feeling it's going to be a good one. Hopefully even more travel and a lot more blog content :) I also really want to be more open in trying new things weather that is trying new foods (oooo or cooking classes), or pushing myself past some of my fears because I am such a wimp.
My main resolution this year is to slow down. Not to slow down life and all that it has in store for me, but with daily things. Sometimes I find myself rushed to get ready for work in the morning, or when I am at the gym. I think even if I give myself 10 more minutes in the morning, I would be able to slow down and enjoy that time a little more. I love being able to have a relaxed morning because I feel like that sets the tone for the entire day. I'm not necessarily a morning person, so this will be a challenge, but I'm willing to go for it!
Now that I won't be bogged down with school and homework in the evenings, I hope to be able to be more present in my life and with others. Finding quality time with friends and loved ones will definitely be high on my list!
If I was a sweater, I'd be this one. I saw it on H&M while Christmas shopping and couldn't pass it up. Who else does that while shopping for others haha? I'm obsessed with all of the chunky and unique sweaters right now; the perfect cozy statement for this awfully cold weather! You can shop both mine and Austins looks below :)
I love love love this marble phone case from iDeal Sweden! It's slim and sleek with all the right features, and on sale right now! They have so many cute prints to choose from and for any of your iPhone needs. I also got the tempered glass screen protector because I was getting scratches on my iPhone 8 much faster than my past iPhones and it was ALL I could look at.

It's Black Friday and you all know what that means! Almost Christmas!! Not that I wanted to skip over Thanksgiving but lets face it, holiday shopping is on everyone's minds at this point. And do I have a treat for my readers :) If you have been following me since last fall, you might remember that I teamed up with JORD Wood Watches for the holidays, you can read it here, and know how much I love watches. I wear them so often that it feels weird when I don't have one on!
I think this watch (the Cora Zebrawood & Turquoise) is so stinkin' cute and classy with the Swarovski crystal accents and the blue face (it also comes in pink!). It is 100% natural wood with a beautiful finish to protect it from water splashes too. It's the perfect timepiece for transitioning from Fall to Winter. I couldn't help but pair it with my new favorite teddy coat and velvet mules from Free People. I have a feeling this whole outfit will be on repeat way too much this season haha! This watch is the perfect addition to any holiday attire and adds a little extra glam to go from a family get together during the day to a dinner party at night.
Follow this link here to get 25% OFF your next watch and win the gift game this year! They also offer custom engraving and the most beautiful keepsake box as shown above. They are seriously the perfect gift for that someone special weather it's your significant other, the sweetest mother, or your deserving best friend.
Happy Shopping and Happy Holidays!

I think the world's cutest laundromat should be awarded to the Sit & Spin here in Fayetteville. I mean come on, how cute and fun is this!? They also have a little restaurant area to chill at and drink champagne while you wait. AND each laundry machine was named! How stinkin' cute is that!?
I am loving this cropped, wide-leg trend right now. I especially love them with booties or mules like these Jeffrey Campbell ones! There are just so many ways to style wide-leg pants too, especially for fall. With an oversized sweater, fitted tee or body suit, oh, and super cute with bomber jackets! When I was doing my usual and grabbing a coffee at Puritan's I saw this camp tee from Fayettechill and couldn't pass it up! I had these pants on and had to change and put it on the minute I left haha :) Just a fun little look I had to share with you all! Challenge yourself to go outside of the box with these pants and how you style them, you can't go wrong!
Persoanlity pics? :)
Love me some fall flowers! Okay, any flowers but I'm ready for a change of scenery and weather here. It's been non stop upper 80's but all I want to do is wear denim and sweaters!! This jumpsuit, however, is holding me over because it's so stinking cute and comfortable! It comes in this black chambray and blue. Also it's on sale!!! It will be so cute with a tee or sweater underneath it once it finally cools down a bit.
I started out my Saturday with brunch at Arsaga's Depot and ordered biscuits and gravy, which I don't normally order but I was in the mood. I get it and it's no joke orange colored gravy. I was like whatever they like to make things a little different here I'm going to be adventurous. It was good, don't get me wrong, but who puts jalapeños in a traditional southern breakfast gravy with whatever else that makes it orange!? All we could do was laugh because that's what I get for switching up my regular foods all the time. I like to try new things okay!?
This fall I am teaming up with Timex in promising to take time to really be present in everyones lives around me, even mine. I want to challenge you guys to do so as well by remembering to take time and enjoy all the special moments, even the little ones like my orange gravy brunch date with Austin :) Time is the most valuable thing we have, we might as well not miss any of our life's most cherished moments! Timex sent me this beautiful rose gold watch and I can't stop wearing it! It is so light and comfortable, with the perfect touch of glamour! It also comes in blue and gold, super cute :)
Have a wonderful day & thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world!!
Thanks Timex for sponsoring this post!
I love wearing casual dresses when it's so hot outside because I'm actually more comfortable. For some reason a plain dress to me can be nicer that a really cute top, then I can dress for whatever I need to! This dress is so soft and stretchy but so flattering; major plus points in my book! I'm also obsessed with these earrings from the Anna and Ava collection at Dillard's and they actually aren't too heavy! Also, PS Dillard's normally has their extra 40% off sale at the end of this week (Wed-Sat)!!!
I have today off so be looking for some new fun things coming up on Instagram and the blog this week!
I'm obsessed with yellow this season! Every item I come across online that is yellow I want to click and buy. When I came across this Who What Wear dress at Target I had to get it and then I had a vision on myself running though some yellow wildflowers, and here we are!! I ended up adding the red belt because it was just a little too big on me but I liked the pop of color. I had quite the mission to find a field like this but as I was tagging along with one of Austin's shoots, we passed it and I probably squealed a little too dramatically like I always do in the car and give drivers a quick heart attack.
All of the Who What Wear collection at Target right now is to die for! Perfectly on trend, perfectly priced! I could buy every single item if they had my size but it sells out so stinkin fast! Shoes, skirts, everything! For this shoot I pulled out my newKat Von D lip liner and used it for a full matte lip. The color is Lolita and a great darker rose color, even for spring.
Quick life update: It's finally sunny today!! Exactly what I needed for the first day of May, also how is it May already!? Friday was my senior final fashion show and was seriously a dream and my model was beyond beautiful!! Check her out on my Twitter :)
