rompin' around

Lately I have been major crushing on rompers! Last year, you
wouldn't catch me dead in one but this season they are so in!
Sadly, I have tried on many rompers lately & I just don't think
my body is meant to wear one. My legs are way too long and
my torso is way too short & they never look good one me! If
you can rock a romper, consider me JEALOUS! I have picked
a few rompers that are definitely on my most coveted list (the
Jamaica honeymoon is definitely in mind):

Concrete Jungle Romper $142 | Nasty Gal x Shakuhachi

Pucker Up Floral Romper $54 | THREADsense

Pink Casual Playsuit $28 | Dorothy Perkins

 After Midnight Ruffled Romper $62 | THREADsense

Happy Romping!

how to: survive college finals week

That crazy time of the year is here! That time where you don't wear real
clothes, don't wash your hair, drink way too much Starbs, & never sleep.
Over my (many) years in college and (many) finals weeks I have learned a
thing or two about how to survive in this stressful time & I am here to share!


1. Find a quiet place to study | Instead of studying in your room with Netflix
tempting you, try studying in a quiet library study room. Studying in a quiet
place often leads to better absorption of information.

2. Switch subjects | If you are planning on studying for an extended amount of
time, try switching between your subjects about every 30 minutes or so to
keep your brain on its toes!

3. Take a break | Study for about an hour or so and then go for a short 10-20
minute walk to wake your brain back up! You will be amazed at how refreshed
you will feel after just a little break!

4. Eat healthy snack | Most people tend to gravitate towards unhealthy, sugary
snacks and energy drinks during times of high stress, but try bringing a handful
of nuts or some fresh veggies to snack on instead. Also remember to drink lots
and lots of water! Dehydration causes fatigue and headaches which can distract
you from your studies.

5. Get your sleep | I cannot stress enough how much a full 8 hours of sleep will
help your studying and testing performance. Try not to pull all-nighters....they hurt
more than help.

6. Create a schedule for yoursef | Blocking out times for all of your assignments
and tests you need to complete or study for can really lead to a more successful
study time. Make sure to focus on due dates and exam times. When you set a goal
and stick to your schedule, there is no reason why you cannot succeed! However,
schedules only work when you stick to them!

7. Go & kick your finals' butts | Just believe you can do this AND keep your sanity!

friday faves + BaubleBar sale

 I am so excited to have an eventful, yet relaxing weekend planned! Between my
last sorority formal and furniture shopping for the new house with Z I will be one
happy busy girl! Just to celebrate Friday I wanted to share a few of my favorites I
have been crushing on this week! This cheeky Cynthia Rowley tee tucked into this
pair of DL1961 flare jeans is just perfect for a breezy day of furniture shopping.
These Vince Kelan wedges are a huge investment, but wouldn't they just dress this
outfit up wonderfully!? To top off the look with this Sophie Hulme satchel,
leopard print square sunglasses, & these pretty gems from BaubleBar (s/o). Speaking
of BaubleBar, they have an insane sale going on right now with selective items 50-90%
off! Loving these earrings & this necklace!

H&M weekend sale

I don't know if you have been on H&M's site lately but I can't stop
finding pretty little things to add to my cart! Plus the fact that they
are having a 50% sale all this weekend makes it easier! Here are some
of my favorites they have right now:

Seriously cannot get over how perfect this simple black lace tank is and the fact
that it is on sale for $5! I have been searching for the perfect pair of leopard sneaks
& these fit the bill! A few more favorites to note: a great light weight pink cardi, perfectly
strappy black heels, a breezy grey maxi {perfect for my honeymoon}, staple striped blazer,
a flouncy spotty scarf, & sweet little espadrilles with just a touch of glitter!

Needless to say I will be visiting my local H&M this weekend for sure!

Happy shopping & may God bless your Easter weekend!

gallery wall inspiration

Lately I have an obsession with gallery walls, especially in an office! I feel like
the perfect office is one that is clean, organized, and full of inspiration! I have
always been drawn to the color scheme of black, white, gold, and pops of
pink - sophisticated and fun! Here are some of my inspirations!




There are so many beautiful prints I have been coveting to add to my gallery
wall. You can buy some pretty amazing prints for under $20! I have been
browsing around Etsy and have found some prints to add a little chic to my office space:

Gold Monogram Print $8 // Like A Boss Print $15 // Get It Girl Print s/o but loving this
