1 simple way to style winter pieces into spring

Posted in Fashion
on 02/19/2018

It’s gettin hot over here. I know the rest of the country probably isn’t experiencing this spring warmth that us Southerners are having, but hey I am here for it. This awkward transition season always has me questioning what’s “ok” for me to wear.. jeans? Yeah I guess so. White? Obvi (I never follow that rule because white is my favorite color). Straw wedges? Hmmmmmm. Velvet tops? EH idk. Today I’m gonna break a few rules and look good while doin em.

Let me just start with an update on my life: I am broke and I am a shopaholic. There’s too many good sales going on right now for amazing winter pieces I can stock up on for next year and waayyy too many beautiful spring styles coming out. I can’t help myself! When I laid my eyes on these beautiful, pink, straw wedges I knew I had to have them. I’ll admit, they’re pricey but so worth it! If you wanna snag last years colors here’s a few on sale in limited sizes (here, here and here).

I wanted to do something a little fun with this outfit so I paired a velvet cami (which I am in love with btw please go get yourself one you will wear it ALL THE TIME), my favorite distressed jeans (on sale right now), and a statement belt. The end result: a wintery/springy basic but super put together look.

Velvet camis go with almost anything! You could easily style this with some fun printed pants and platforms, a simple skirt, or even white jeans to bring it into spring.

Is there any winter pieces into your closet you wish that you could style into the spring? Comment down below and let’s figure out some new ways to rock em!


White on denim

Let’s talk simplicity. Although I *feel* (keyword: feel) like I’ve been getting more daring with my fashion choices, in all honestly I think all I’ve done is wear some overalls, neck scarves, and fun earrings. So yeah, I do have somewhat of a safe style, but ya know what, there’s nothing wrong with that. At the end of the day there is nothing I love more than jeans and a t-shirt.

Essentially the point of that entire blurb was to say this outfit is super simple, but it’s also a little fun with the pops of color I added (thank you for accessories). White on denim is one of my favorite combos year round, but I especially love it for the summer.

Another off the shoulder top I know… Lol. This one goes great with a skirt or even denim shorts. The skirt I’m wearing is on sale right now (wahoo)! It’ll definitely come in handy this fall during football season. If you keep up with me on social media, you would know I am head over heels for statement earrings. These mini tassels are from BaubleBar and they’re so fun to throw on with a simple outfit like this one. I have not worn these green mirrored Ray Bans in forever so I decided to add them to the mix too (more fun colors to this otherwise simple outfit).

Ooooh, those shoes.

Omg, I know right?! They were a huuugge splurge for me, but I finally bit the bullet after eyeing them for two weeks straight (a little obsessive, no?). They’re Marc Fisher, so the quality and comfort is there. This season’s must have shoe has been the “Adalyn” and I love the look of that wedge, but I felt like the “Randall” was more my style. They’re a great wedge to wear everyday with anything from dresses to jean shorts. I’d say they run pretty true to size and are well worth the hefty price tag. There’s a bunch of different colors to choose from (I love the blue) so I’ll link them for y’all below.

Do y’all find yourself playing it safe with your outfits? Lemme know your struggle below. Until next time!!


Sleeveless sweater weather

This is the first post of many fall outfits that are coming soon to the blog… It dropped a few degrees down here in South Louisiana + I immediately broke out my favorite pair of jeans. This sleeveless tunic was a recent find at Forever 21 (for a whopping $15) #asteal!

I am so excited about this sleeveless tunic for the fall! It is so basic which works perfect if you want to add some chunky jewelry (like I did). For a super sophisticated vibe, I layered this fringe necklace (which I love to add to any simple top for a statement) overtop the tunic. These jeans are my favorite of all time (and they’re only $32 from Old Navy) — they’re literally the most comfortable jeans I’ve yet to wear! But wait y’all… these shoes. Dolce Vita for Target stole my heart. I wanted the entire line I kid you not! But these black lace up chunky heels I absolutely had to have. They look so edgy paired with skirts, jeans, or even shorts (#gogetyouapair). One last side note: this lipstick I’m wearing is my saving grace + is the best fall color of all time.

If y’all know of any cute sleeveless tunics, send me some links! I wanna expand my collection stat.

Hello my loves! This weekend I headed to a huge event in NOLA, Hogs for the Cause – which is a charity BBQ competition benefitting pediatric brain cancer. My dad has a team that cooks in the competition every year! So I decided to head on out there and support him and sample the amazing food.

Since it had rained so heavily before, the entire NOLA City Park was flooded and super duper muddy. I wore my Hunter boots and man am I glad that I did! It was a bit windy too so I decided on a long sleeve Piko top and some flowy shorts. My Longchamp was perfect because it’s huge and is great to sling around (if it gets dirty I can just wash it – it’s the best). I added a statement necklace from Forever 21 and that topped it off! This outfit ended up being an unintentional color block – but I loved the outcome!

I enjoyed getting to see each teams take on the different categories of the competition. I tried some interesting foods: pork cracklins with queso, pork balls (my dad’s submission), and green chile frito pie (made with pork) to name a few. My friend Cat (and future roomie) joined me for the trip and we got to hang out with my twin sister (check out the third picture).

The ultimate guide to GAL-entine’s Day | LGIP

Posted in Lifestyle
on 02/10/2016

Calling all of my gals who will be celebrating the year’s Valentine’s day not with a man, but with some gal pals! If you’ve watched Parks and Rec, you’re totally getting my reference right now :)

Bless you Leslie Knope for Galantines Day. I wanted to create a post encompassing all things Galentines day: girl power playlist, fun presents for your gals, and a list of the best rom- coms in the history of EVER. Eeeeeee I am so excited to share this with y’all! Without further ado….



Well ya can’t have Galentine’s day without some sappy rom-coms. These are just some of my all time faves to watch with my gals. I mean you really can’t go wrong with 13 Going on 30, HSM, and Clueless now can you? Grab some silky PJ’s and popcorn and have a movie marathon with your gal’s!


Jamming to some tunes with gal pals is one of my all time favorite things to do. I’ve created a Spotify playlist that encompasses all of the best jams to beat those V-day blues. I’ll link it here. PS: Follow me on Spotify (I am ALWAYS listening to some tunes).


PJ’s // Bubblegum Lip Scrub // Phone case // Ray Bans // Curling wand // Rosebud Salve // Revlon Lip Butter // Fit Bit Flex

 If ya want to #treatyoself (another Parks and Rec reference I’m sorry :) ) or even treat yo friends, take a peak at this all of these pink goodies I’ve gathered. Lip products are always a fave of mine to give and receive. I’ve even done a super detailed post about my fave lip products here. Of course, I had to include a pair of Raybans because I am sunglass obsessed as you can see in this post. I threw in a cute pair of PJ’s to snuggle up in, as well as the cutest pink snake skin phone case. And if you’re wondering how I curl my hair, here’s one of the wands I use.

The perfect formula for galentine’s day:

sappy rom coms + girl power tunes + a present or two


Who is going to have a Galentine’s day this year? I know I am!

I’m feelin’ 19 | Birthday OOTD

Posted in Fashion
on 01/24/2016

Happy Birthday to me! :) I had such a fantastic day yesterday with my friends and family. We ended up heading into NOLA for the day and met my Mom, Bruce and twin sister Reagan. We all ate lunch at Domenica in the Roosevelt Hotel. I split a Prosciutto pizza and some Squid pasta (sounds weird but soo yummy). We went to eat some desert in the Roosevelt after and to take some pictures of the whole group. Then my parents and Reagan headed back to Mandeville and the rest of us went to the Riverwalk. I literally hadn’t been there since seventh grade so it had changed a lot lol. We walked around and I ended up “treating myself” (I love Parks and Rec but mostly Tom Haverford) to a pair of Ray Bans on the discounted rack. They had a “defect” in them so they were on sale for $99! I normally NEVER pay full price for sunglasses so it worked out well! I am really into the brown lens with the black frame- I had never seen them before!

Once we left NOLA, we got some pizza (twice in one day I know) and then went out in Baton Rouge and it was such a great time! Thanks to my friends and family for making my birthday so special, I love each and every one of you!

Here’s some pictures of my outfit for y’all to see!





J Crew Waxed Jacket // J Crew Gigi Pants // We The Free Thermal // J Crew Vest // Tory Burch Boots // Ray Bans // Mini MAC // MK Sport Watch // Bauble Bar Tassel Bracelet 

The weather yesterday was such a bummer because it was freezing. It’s been pretty cold here in Louisiana for the past few weeks… I’m not sure if I like it or not. For warmth, I went for layers. I borrowed this thermal turtleneck from Maddie, and I am in LOVE with it. It looks so cute with a vest on or even to wear it on its own with a long necklace. Over that, I layered my J Crew Excursion vest (shocker there.. Told y’all I was obsessed with vests). To top off my top half, I wore my J Crew Waxed Jacket. I talked about how much I love this piece in my winter essentials post so you can click for more deets. For pants, I chose my J Crew Gigi pants. These are seriously the freaking best. They’re a step up from leggings because they have stitching/piping on the back of the leg and they zip in addition to being a super stretchy and thick material.

To top off my outfit I wore my Tory Burch riding boots, and I carried my Mini MAC (fave crossbody EVER). For accessories, I wore my usual MK Sport Watch as well as my tassel cuff from Bauble Bar. Like I mentioned earlier in this post, I picked up a new pair of Ray Bans and I decided to wear them too!

What do y’all do for your birthday? Let me know in the comments below! Until Wednesday..

You’re only 19 once… | My Birthday Wishlist

Posted in Uncategorized
on 01/20/2016

The time has come once again… it’s finally my birthday this weekend (January 23)! In preparation for questions from family members, friends and my parents- here’s what I’m wishing for this year (hint, hint Mom and Dad).


Kendra Scott Elisa // Cannon Rebel T3i // Phone Case // FitBit Flex //Ray Ban Aviators

// Cannon Rebel T3i //

As my blog grows, I’ve found the need for a new camera. The camera I currently use is my sisters (thanks Reag), and I’ve overstayed my welcome with it quite a bit. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this camera, and it was reasonably priced, so I wanted to give it a try. It’s got a flip out screen and it shoots video in 1800 HP. I’m super excited to finally have a nice camera of my own. Going from a Nikon to a Cannon is gonna be a big step, but I think I’m going to enjoy using something different.

// Kendra Scott Elisa //

I’m so disappointed in myself and I recently lost my Kendra Scott Elisa between LSU and home during break :( I loved that necklace so much, it really does look fantastic with anything. Layering it with my gold Alpha Phi necklace dressed up my usual uniform of a tee-shirt and yoga pants. I had a minty green color for my last one, but the amethyst color is catching my eye. Plus I have 50% of one item for my birthday month at Kendra Scott so I may just end up buying this one for myself! ;)

// Phone Case //

I ended up getting a new phone because my other phone screen shattered to pieces (the MINUTE I took off my glass screen protector) and I had insurance on it. The Speck case I have now is kinda beaten up so I am on the market for a new one. The case doesn’t even have to have that much protection due to the fact that I have the glass screen protector which has saved my life many, many times (Get it here). Casify has such adorable cases and I thought this one would be so stinking cute for my phone. It’s got some protection in it which is always a plus, regardless of whether or not I need it!

// Fit Bit //

In my quest to TRY to be healthier this year (keyword: try), I’ve been super interested in getting a FitBit. This one is really sleek and compact, and it tells you steps, distance, calories burned and sleep. I love the black color because it will go with anything. I do a lot of walking around campus, so I’m always yearning to know how many steps I’m taking per day! I’ve heard a lot of great things about this Fitbit, so that always helps too!

// Ray Ban Aviators //

Do y’all think I’m crazy yet? I am clearly obsessed with sunglasses and this further proves it. They are always a go to when someone doesn’t know what to get me. I love the Aviators from Ray Ban, and I think this golden brown ombre is really different. I think they would look good with my dark hair and dark eyebrows!

When is your birthday? Have you started making a wish list?

Winter essentials for a winter in Southern Louisiana

Posted in Fashion
on 01/10/2016

Since it’s FINALLY decided to get cold here in Southern Louisiana, I’ve had to break out some of my winter essentials for wear. I tend to gravitate towards the same basic pieces and then I’ll add some color with accessories scarves, jewelry, or even lip color. Well, let’s get to it y’all! Here are some of my winter essentials for this South Louisiana weather…


Puffer Vest // Bean Boots // Ray Bans // Field Jacket // Chunky Scarf // Hunter Boots

// Puffer Vest //

Seriously one of my all-time favorite pieces ever. I have quite a few vests in multiple colors, so I really could throw this baby on over any outfit. It’s perfect for a day when it’s not exactly cold enough for a jacket, or even when it get’s cold I’ll wear it underneath a jacket for some more warmth. I’ve styled one of my favorite vests, the J. Crew Factory herringbone quilted vest here.

// Bean Boots //

After many seasons of lusting over these, I bit the bullet and got a pair last year. My sweet Mama is actually Maine born-and-raised so she helped me with the sizing since she knows her stuff (you should order a size down from your normal size). I love breaking these out in the winter time with some warm knit socks over leggings or even jeans. They are a super versatile shoe that can be worn in cold or even wet weather.

// Ray Bans //

In my book, a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses is an essential ALWAYS. I carry at least one pair around with me at all times. These aviators with green flash lenses are perfect to add a pop of color to my outfit. See how I wear them in the winter time here, here, and here.

// Field Jacket //

I love this jacket to layer over a vest or even to throw on over a simple top. It’s waxed so it’s super structured but it’s such a classic look. I scored it on eBay for around $50 with the tags and everything, so I love showing off this great find.

// Chunky Scarf //

Last season, I picked this up in white and black from Old Navy. I love adding a chunky knit scarf to any outfit to warm it up, or even to make it a little more casual. These scarves come in so many different colors, you’ll be able to find one to match any outfit.

// Hunter Boots //

I featured these in my Wednesday post this week. I normally always pair them with something neutral on top since they are such a show stopper. Wearing some super thick, knit socks is always a must with these bad boys to ensure my feet keep warm. Perfect for cold and/or wet weather just like my Bean Boots!

What are your winter essentials for where you live?
