In case you couldn’t tell, I’m always wearing a crossbody purse. They are my absolute favorite. I don’t like huge bags and this one from Coach is probably the largest (and most expensive) one I’ve had. They’re just so easy to carry around. In this picture I’m carrying Continue reading “Why crossbodies are my favorite…”

We took these pictures my graduation day and I’m so in love with the dress I wore! They’re all sold out online now :( it’s like a creme color and had scallop trim around the top. I love scalloped anything right now. I’m also in love with this boy in case you can’t tell ;) I’m so Continue reading “White lace…”

Easter Weekend

I think Easter is definitely one of the happiest holidays, right up there with Christmas. Bright colors and cute spring decor everywhere makes me so excited! I’m really into bright colored anything and bring on the warmer weather haha. This year I didn’t have time to go pick out an Easter dress. I love getting a new one to wear but it just didn’t work this time so I ended up in one I’ve worn several times. It’s a blush shade which went perfectly with Continue reading “Easter Weekend”

Lately…

Andrew finally came home after about three weeks! I think that’s like the longest we’ve been apart so I’m glad that school’s about over. We got to go on a date night to see Mockingjay Part II and it was SO good! We went and ate at Chick-fil-a afterwards and just talked for a good hour. I needed a break from school.

This picture is from the book character parade we had at school before Halloween. The kindergarten teachers and student teachers dressed up as superheros. I’m number six of the seven habit superheros. I wish I could show a picture of the kids…they were so cute in their costumes! 2015-10-30 12.29.57

I love this picture of my grandma petting one of Jessica’s baby calves. Jessica bottle feeds the ones who lost their mother.2015-10-22 12.55.25

Rebekah and I went to Target and found this double headed sweater and thought it was hilarious! If you go to an ugly Christmas sweater party then definitely check this one out haha!2015-11-21 20.32.02

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is having fun getting ready for Christmas! I’ve been so busy ever since the week of Thanksgiving. I’ve been decorating, shopping for Christmas presents, working on homework, and getting ready for finals. I can’t wait to finish up school so I can start doing all of the fun Christmas things like looking at the Christmas lights, making cookies, watching Christmas movies all day, and drinking hot chocolate. Hope everyone is having a great week, love you all!

 

 

Pumpkin Loving

Fall is definitely my favorite season! I’m loving the weather right now where it’s cool enough to wear boots and long sleeves but not chilly where I need a coat. I’m really loving scarfs this season and just got this one that I love. A lot of scarves just look huge on me so when I find a super soft one that doesn’t look like it swallowed my neck, I get it haha!

Andrew and I finally got to carve a pumpkin and it was so fun! We just went for a simple design this time…the complicated ones just make us frustrated and take the fun out of it for us. We watched scary movies all weekend long and I can’t wait for ABC Family’s 13 nights of Halloween. The classics are still my favorite like Halloweentown. I hope ya’ll have a great week and love you all!

City View

Over the summer, Andrew lived in Nashville in a condo that had the best view from the balcony! It was just so pretty and peaceful (at least from the 26th floor haha). We could see everything from there since it was right in the middle of downtown Nashville. It was so fun with him living there, because we could just walk to everything from his condo. A few streets down was the CMA Festival (we went to see Jana Kramer!) over the summer and it’s also where everything in Nashville takes place. I love country music and have always lived about 40 minutes away from Nashville but have never really gotten to just walk around downtown as much as I have this past summer. There’s so much to do and see. They have live music in just about every place on Broadway. I would loveee to go to the Grand Ole Opry and still can’t believe I haven’t been yet. It’s weird that so many famous people visit downtown Nashville and I see instagram pictures with them there all the time but I have yet to see one of them in person. Oh well, it’s still fun to just sight-see there :) Thanks for reading and below is a picture I took from Jana Kramer’s CMA concert!

Orange and White

In honor of UT’s first home football game this fall, I thought I would post what I wore to the game when I got to go a few years back. UT’s colors are obviously orange and white so it was easy for me to find a white dress and then add some orange accessories. It can get really hard to find your school’s exact color in a dress sometimes (especially if their colors are really unique), so my advice for that would be to go shopping in stores like boutiques that are close to the campus. They purposely stock-up on dresses and shirts that are the school’s color. I think the best thing to wear to a college football game is definitely a dress unless you go more towards winter when it’s colder out. Dresses are so comfortable to me while also looking like you tried to dress up some. Oh and they are cool which is especially important here in the south haha! If you are able to find a solid colored dress in your school’s color then it becomes a super easy outfit to put together. I would make sure your dress isn’t too fancy and has a more cotton like material. You also want it to be comfortable! Once you’ve found a dress you like, all you have to do is add a necklace or bracelet in the other school color and then pair it with some cowgirl boots or sandals! I don’t recommend heels since they just aren’t practical with all of those bleachers and stairs.

Another simple tip is to polish your nails in your school’s color. I just did orange nails and it gives you another pop of a color that you may not have had much of in your outfit before. You could also try a less dramatic version of this with your makeup. Like for me, I could have done a peachy lip color or blush to play up the orange some. It would be super easy if your school color was red to just add some red lipstick. I probably would steer clear of this though if your color was something like blue or green since those aren’t really natural makeup colors.

For men, it’s really simple. A polo shirt in your school’s color which can usually be bought at your school’s gift shop or online store and a pair of khaki shorts is perfect for the game. Don’t forget some sunglasses and have fun!!!
