Friday Favorites

Happy Friday y'all! I'm so excited to start enjoying the weekend now that my first exam of the semester is over! I had a psychology exam this morning, and I wish I could say I was being dramatic when I was massaging my hand after class haha! Nearly all of my exams have been online since being in college, so my poor hand was just not physically prepared. Now that that's all over with, though, I'm sharing with y'all all my weekly favorites including a few spring new arrivals, some darling items on sale and the Pixar video that literally made my jaw drop because it's so heart-wrenching!

5 Things My Best Friend Taught Me

Today, I thought I'd mix things up because honestly, I think everyone should have a friend like Nicole! We went to high school together (more about that here), became inseparable in college and were even roommates for a semester. She's been my photographer for a number of blog posts, and most recently, she asked me to be one of her bridesmaids! Over the past three and a half years, we've been through a lot together – navigating sorority life, crushing on boys and managing classes because I may have picked her major?? Through it all, I've been so thankful to have her by my side. She is the best friend I could have asked for, and she's taught me so much along way! Friendships are so powerful and shape who we are, so, for those of you who may not have the chance to meet her, I'm sharing five of the most impactful things she's shown me through our's!

Start Shopping for Spring Early

Stores are just starting to release their spring collections, so for those of you who may have spring break coming up or want to get a head start on updating your closet, I'm sharing some of my favorite pieces along with trends to look out for. Golden yellow is definitely shaping up to be the color of the season, and it's look like hair accessories are here for another year. Also, I've had my eye out for swimwear, but so far, I'm not impressed. Maybe as the season progresses the selection will get better, and I'll do a separate blog post then! I'm excited for stores to get fully into the spring spirit, but for now, here are some trends I'm anticipating, along with a few spring pieces that are available and under $100 today!

Y'all, I can't believe how quickly the weather changed again this week. It was a beautiful 50 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday, and then this morning I woke up to several inches of snow! Can it just be spring already?! I hope everyone enjoyed the weather while it lasted and had a wonderful Valentine's Day, though! Last night my boyfriend and I got Panda Express, watched The Office and ended the night with Hershey sundae pies; it was such a fun and enjoyable night in. Now today, I'm avoiding the outside world at all costs and sharing with y'all a few spring new arrivals in hopes of warmer weather as well as some YouTube videos that brought a smile to my face this week!

Feeling 22

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22!! Shoutout to Taylor Swift for forever making 22 a milestone year; I feel like I've been waiting forever to take advantage of this moment haha! I'm going to keep things short and sweet today, but instead of a typical fashion or lifestyle post, I thought I'd give y'all the opportunity to get to know me a little better. So, today I'm sharing 22 fun facts about myself that some of you may or may not already know, but honestly, I'd be surprised if anyone knew all of these because my little idiosyncrasies are incredibly numerous! 

Cozy on Campus + Sherpa Jacket

When it comes to getting dressed to go to class on campus I always want to look put together, but at the same time, I refuse to sacrifice my comfort for it. Honestly, nothing sounds worse to me than walking across campus in anything besides running shoes and leggings. I'd go as far as to compare it to cruel and unusual torture, actually. So, today, I'm sharing with y'all one of my go-to winter outfits comprised of all my essentials plus the coziest sherpa jacket! I've also started going to barre between my classes, so playing around with versatile outfits like this one has been a favorite of my lately!

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! Today has been off to the weirdest start for me. First of all, I had the strangest dream last night about getting caught in a tornado and then living in a helicopter with my cat for 10 years... like what??? Then, I was getting ready to shoot pictures for a post for next week, and my hair was just not cooperating. It wouldn't hold a curl whatsoever, and one side looked like my hair belonged on a scarecrow! I may be exaggerating, but you get the idea haha! Hopefully once I get done with class, I can just shower and try to continue the rest of my day feeling fresh. Before I go too far into weekend mode though, I want to share with y'all my Friday favorites!

Comfy + Casual Valentine's Day Outfit

We're officially one week away from Valentine's Day, and with the weather right now, let me just say my mindset is as far away from pretty dresses and basically anything that isn't a cozy oversized sweater haha! Last night, my roommate Rachel and I were chilling in our living room when it suddenly started thundering, snowing and icing all at once. It was so wild! So, with the chilly weather expected to stay and for those of you who may have more casual plans next Thursday, I want to share with y'all this super cozy and casual outfit that is totally appropriate and equally feminine for Valentine's Day! 

Valentine's Day Gift Guide

I know Valentine's Day isn't really anyone's favorite holiday, but I think it's all what you make of it! I personally enjoy everything the day brings – mainly chocolate and more chocolate in my case – and for the past two years, I even got a little thrill in seeing other girls get flowers delivered to them at my sorority house! By the way, shoutout to my mom for always sending me flowers and making sure I didn't feel left out when I was #single haha! Anyways, I always love browsing through the Valentine's gift sections – I have a weak spot for anything pink – and I thought I'd share with y'all some of my favorites this year!
