Explorin’ Charleston

Happy hump day friends!! This week’s been a hard adjustment getting back to real life. *sigh* Spring Break was just too good to me, y’all. Speaking of, here’s a recap of our time in Charleston. Ugh, if you haven’t visited you need to. The architecture is so beautiful and the food is 100. I hope I can go back soon because I seriously fell in love.

We went exploring and I made sure we headed straight to Rainbow Row to look at the beautiful houses! We strolled along the Battery and then a bit in the “French Quarter” area (paging home) for some market shopping. Dinner was amaze. We went to Stars Bar and Rooftop Grill (I literally felt so adult-like) and it was sooooooo bomb.


This set from Free People has been so fabulous this spring, I think I’ve worn it as separates three or four times. I paired the skirt with this open knit distressed sweater. I have always loved the look of a skirt and sweater so I was dying to recreate it with this set! My pearl on suede cord, MK watch and Jacks rounded out the look.

I’ll be sharing a few more pics from the trip in my Life Lately so stay tuned :-) See y’all next week!


Come sail away | LGIP OOTD

Hey whats up hello peeps! A very happy Wednesday to y’all! I’m currently typing this post at the beach (aka my favorite place EVS) jamming to Whitney Houston — it can’t get much better than this. Funny story about this OOTD actually if y’all want it… long story short I tried to take some outfit pics yesterday night after dinner but the lighting was ATROCIOUS. So I ended up running inside after we left the beach to quickly shower + get ready to retake pics tonight. Special thanks to my family for putting up with my craziness!

First of all, let’s talk about my obsession with this off the shoulder Piko top. It literally matches with everything + I’ve been wearing it nonstop since I got it. Tonight I paired it with some white linen shorts and a simple statement necklace from stella & dot. My kicks tonight are my gold Jacks. While on vacation I tend to just pack a pair of Jacks because they are so versatile and can serve as my flip-flops but can dress an outfit up too!

Hope y’all enjoyed this OOTD, I’ll talk to y’all on Sunday :-)

Swooning over this Spring | LGIP Spring 2016 Trends

Things normally work out so that by the point its mid winter, I’m already wanting Spring. It’s only February, and living in Louisiana, our weather is anything but predictable, so you never actually know when Spring will grace us with its presence. Nonetheless, I am ready for things to warm up. Next month is spring break, and easter- so it’s time to whip out some bathing suits, sundresses, and of course- Jack Rogers (look at my summer posts and you will quickly learn my OBSESSION with Jacks). I’ve been peaking on a whole bunch of websites- although sadly I cannot purchase much (broke college student) and have found quite a few trends I think will show up on the fashion scene this spring.

// Get your tassel on //

Honestly, I’m always a huge fan of tassels. They are something that I think is so fun and a great way to jazz up your stack. I own a few tassel bracelets from Bauble bar (see my post on them here), and I plan to be purchasing some more so I can stack those babies up! The multicolored beaded ones are my faves as of right now. Tassels can also be done in necklaces, as well as earrings. If you’re looking for a statement, go no further tassels it is!

// Snakeskin anything //

Snakeskin has made its comeback! You can find it in anything from purses, skirts, dresses, pants (MuMu has an adorable snakeskin line).

// Lace em up //

Gladiator sandals were all the rage last spring/summer, and honestly I feel like they are a classic. Sam Edelman has a great line of lace-up gladiators, they even come in snakeskin, black and classic camel. I love a lace up sandal with a basic denim short and tee for a casual day. If you’re looking to dress up an outfit, chunky lace up heels are perfect. They add a little bit of pizzazz!

Let’s be real- when is black and white not in style? This spring season I’m seeing lots of fun black and white prints. Black and white is a great base to accessorize off of. Throw on some pops of color in your shoes, or even in some jewelry.

I’ve seen endless repins of this crochet bathing suit on Pinterest. It’s the perfect combo of that boho vibe and some bright colors. While browsing I Believe in Pink, I saw that Amy had linked a bathing suit that looked almost exact to the expensive one, but for only $25! I ordered it yesterday, so we’ll see how it looks when it gets in the mail!

Aztec always finds its way back into style around spring and summer. This season we will be seeing aztec everywhere swim wear, clothing and accessories.

// Fringe is still in //

Fringe is here to stay, y’all. I’m obsessed with this fringed suede skirt. It’s the perfect length and I love how the fringe is at the bottom, not covering the whole skirt. Fringe purses are super duper cute and great to make an outfit more casual and bohemian.

Back to Basics

Even as someone who loves to get dolled up, sometimes I like to throw on a tee and some shorts and call it a day. With this Louisiana weather, things heat up pretty quickly around here. This simple little outfit I put together is compiled from basics that all girls most likely have in their closets. Outfits like these are lifesavers when you’re out of things to wear (I often look at my closet full of clothes and say ‘I have nothing to wear…’).

I paired a simple back tee with my all time favorite pair of distressed high-waisted denim shorts from Articles of Society. Since I was running errands, I added my monogram necklace (simple, but it’s such a statement piece), my Jacks (because obviously…), and my Mini MAC (which is the best cross body bag I’ve ever owned!).

My formula for the perfect simple outfit:

Solid Tee + Denim + Accessories

Palmin’ Around

Dang y’all, I have seen this palm print everywhere these days. Seriously everywhere. On rompers, dresses, skirts, shirts– you name it, it’ll most likely come in a palm print.

My outfit for today was centered around my Old Navy flat front palm print shorts. I’m loving these right now! They go so great with white, but you could definitely get away with a black top too. I paired them with a white 3/4 length sleeve Piko. Words cannot describe my obsession with Piko tops. I swear I have almost 10! They are so easy! In the winter, you can add a vest and a scarf and you’re good to go. For summer, I like styling them with a pair of shorts or even jeans and my Jacks. They’re made out of 90% bamboo, so they won’t shrink or lose their shape (which is awesome if you just throw everything in the wash together, like me!) and they are the softest. They come in a variety of sleeve lengths, so you can find one for every season. The long sleeve and short sleeve are my fave.

For accessories, I added my floppy hat and my new mirrored Ray Ban aviators (check out my post on them here!) along with a black faux leather tote. Ugh, I’m such a fan of totes because I carry around my whole life with me. Literally. The tote is super roomy and has a few little pockets on the side along with zippers on the sides that expand the tote for more stuff! Plus, I got a great deal on it so that’s always nice too!

My stack today consisted of my everyday watch– the Michael Kors tortoise shell sport watch, a stella&dot green bangle, and my Alex and Ani charm bracelet (Note to self: I need more of these!). It was pretty simple today.

My gold Jacks topped off the whole look. Do yourself a favor and buy a pair of Jacks. These are my favorite summer shoes. I own six pairs and I continue to buy more! They are such a good-looking shoe, you honestly can’t go wrong with them.

Do y’all own any palm print items? How do you style them?
