Pink Striped Peplum

Today is the best! ...said no one ever the day before a psychology exam. Just kidding! While I'm definitely not looking forward to studying for my exam, Grey's Anatomy is on tonight, and that automatically makes Thursdays the best day of the week! Also, it's another pretty spring day, which gives me an excuse to break out allllll the pink – like this striped peplum top! The shape is so flattering and feminine, and the linen-like material makes it absolutely perfect for warmer weather. I bought this top from a boutique in New Orleans last spring, but Madewell has a very similar style out right now that I'm sure y'all will love, too! 

4 Easy Ways to Stay Up-To-Date on the News

I'm naturally a curious person, and I will not hesitate to fact check anything that comes out of someone's mouth (my teenage sister can probably vouch for how annoying it gets sometimes haha!) But gosh, I'm a print journalism major, and even I can't remember the last time I opened a physical newspaper. Maybe it's just part of getting older or the current social climate, but at one point, I felt like my Facebook feed and Google were no longer cutting it, which is when I made the intentional decision to become more well-informed on what's going on in the world on a daily basis. Thankfully, the digital landscape has made it easier than ever, and today, I want to share with y'all the four tools I've found to be both the most convenient and educational! 

Weekly Favorites

Happy Saturday, y'all! This week has been one of little sleep for me. I started my 6-week class on Monday, and I'm not sure how I feel about having 8 a.m. classes every day of the week now... I even had to wake up early this morning, too, and I'm fighting every urge in me to take a nap right now! Also, I'm not sure how many of you watch This Is Us, but I finally watched the season three finale this morning, and it left my heart in shreds! I always forget how much I love this show, and now I literally cannot wait until season four in September. This may be a little dramatic, but I'm convinced that waiting for the next season of a show has to be one of the agonizing things we endure. But, enough of that, let's get into my weekly favorites now! 

Green Gingham

Hey y'all! This week has felt like a long one, so wow, does it feel nice to say that it's Thursday! The only thing that was keeping me upbeat was the beautiful spring weather – 80 degrees is my sweet spot – which also gave me the chance to shoot one of my easiest, go-to spring outfits! I definitely stole this top from my sister (sorry not sorry), but just like florals, I think gingham is a classic spring pattern that can take on a darling look when paired with just the right accessories. 

Weekly Favorites

Hey y'all! Happy Saturday! I know I usually share my weekly favorites on Fridays, but if you saw my Instagram post yesterday, you would know that I took a much-needed nap after staying up super late Thursday night to finish an assignment for class. Then, once I woke up, I spent the rest of my day binge watching The Voice. All in all, it was a good start to my weekend haha! Today, though, I want to share with y'all all the adorable spring new arrivals I've come across this week. I'm all about the colorful sundresses and shoes! Plus, if you haven't seen the new preview for The Bachelorette, I linked it down below because I think it's one of the greatest things I've ever seen the franchise push out!

6 Podcasts to Try This Spring

Let me just start this off by saying that in class I am the absolute worst at sitting and listening to audio. If there isn't a visual to go along with whatever is being said, my ears instantly turn off, so naturally, I assumed that I would hate podcasts. Boy was I wrong! Up until three months ago, I refused to even give them a try, but now podcasts are something I listen to on a regular basis. Whether I'm driving to class, putting away dishes or playing on the floor with my cat, I've found podcasts to be such an entertaining form of background noise. So, with the start of spring, I thought today would be the perfect time to share all of my favorites!
