Weekly Favorites

Hey y'all! Happy Sunday! I usually post my weekly favorites on Fridays, but between driving home for Thanksgiving break and an internet outage, it just didn't happen. I couldn't justify skipping this post for another week, though, because there are SO many things I want to share with y'all – including tons of new arrivals and a can't-miss Nordstrom sale that ends TODAY!!! So, happy shopping, and I'll talk to y'all in a couple days from New Orleans!

3 Ways to Journal

The moment I sit down to journal is typically the most peaceful time of my day. I'll light a candle, put on some instrumental music and write about whatever is taking up space in head. Daily journaling is a habit I started my sophomore year of college, and surprisingly, I haven't stopped since. It began it as a way to make sense of all the thoughts going on in my head as well as a way to record my life in a manner that felt natural to me. Now I'm not saying daily journaling is for everyone, but I am a firm believer that it is one of the best ways to learn about yourself, capture memories and clear your head.

The Perfect Plaid at Public Hall

Yesterday, in an effort to solve my seasonal dilemma (Fall? Winter? I still don't know!) and hype myself up for a class presentation, I decided to swing by Public Hall – a coffee shop here in Manhattan. I've never been the biggest fan of public speaking, but recently, I've found that pumping myself full of caffeine helps me get through it better haha! Does anyone else do something like that, or is it just me?? Anyways, once I ditched my coat, I lounged around in this incredibly comfortable and versatile plaid shirt I've had since July. It's one of those pieces I firmly believe you can wear year-round and is perfect for a variety of occasions. 

The Perfect Dress for Fall + Winter

Dress: ASOS Corduroy shirt dress | Earrings: Kindred (similar here) | Shoes: Gap Factory Chelsea boots (currently 60% off) | Lips: Revlon Colorburst lip balm in "Sultry" 

Hey y'all! Long time no talk! If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I was busy in Chicago this past week. I'll talk more about that in a second, but despite it being a beautiful city, the weather was nothing short of miserable. Then, right after I got back to Kansas it decided to suddenly turn into winter! The snow we got yesterday is so pretty, but if you don't already know, cold weather is not my thing! So, is it still fall? Is it officially winter here? I'm not sure! But what I do know is that this burgundy shirt dress is perfect for both seasons! 

Friday Favorites

Hey y'all! Another weekend means another round-up of my weekly favorites! The cutest new arrivals just don't stop coming, and I've also started getting into podcasts, so be sure to check that section out, too! I'm not sure how exciting this weekend will be for me. I'm going to spend a lot of it catching up and getting ahead on class assignments because I'm taking a trip to Chicago next week! While I'm excited to go, it also means I'll be missing three days of classes, so I'll be putting in work this weekend to make sure everything goes smoothly. 

Fall Staples Under $30

Top: Abercrombie satin cami | Cardigan: Old Navy camel sweater | Jeans: Similar here | Boots: Sole Society (old, similar here) | Earrings: Gold hoops | Necklace: Gold hammered necklace | Watch: Similar here | Lips: Revlon ColorStay stain in "Parisian Passion" 

Hey y'all! Happy Friday Jr.! I've been doing a little updating to my fall wardrobe recently, and this black camisole is quickly becoming a staple in my rotation. The beautiful lace detailing makes it the perfect top to layer underneath cardigans, and at less than $30, you can justify getting one in every color! The satin material is so smooth, and in my opinion, the little buttons add the perfect feminine touch. It's been fairly warm in Manhattan lately, so for today's look I chose to pair it with my thin, camel-color cardigan from Old Navy. This is another piece that's just under $30, and for a comfy cardigan that be layered tons of different ways, it's quite the steal! 

Living in the Moment

I love blogging. I truly do. It's hard to put into words what I like about it, except there's few other outlets that allow me to truly explore my creativity and feel purposeful doing so. There's no other feeling like creating the perfect photograph, putting my thoughts into relatable words and being a part of such a supportive online community. Although, if you ask what my least favorite part is, the answer is easy.
