Seein’ stars

So long summer… and hello school.

It’s been a long two weeks of silence (LSU sororities have to be silent the week leading up to recruitment and the week of recruitment) but I am happy to be back! My first day of junior year was Monday (dang I feel old). But before I dive into fall fashion on LGIP, I wanted to do a lil sign off to summer featuring my favorite sweater + short combo.

This MuMu sweater has seriously been one of my go to’s this summer. It’s so lightweight and I love wearing it with jean shorts. I’m seriously so sad that this star print is sold out, but I linked it’s matching striped one and a few for y’all below.

Jean shorts – my best basic during the spring and summer. I snagged this pair from Abercrombie (yeah you heard me right) for $40. Seriously consider heading over there if you’re in the market for jeans/shorts/skirts because they’re always having a great sale!

I’m seriously so excited to start giving y’all a peak into my fall closet (something I feel like I dropped the ball on last year). Any suggestions for posts? Leave me a comment!


Wednesday blues | How to add more Show me your MuMu to your closet

Hey my people. I’m coming to ya today to share this adorable little blue and white look. Funny story: while I was trying to shoot this, I was dripping in sweat (TMI?). Gotta love that Louisiana heat.


tunic | jeans (under $40) | tkees | crossbody | ray ban aviators

This summer I’ve definitely become a Show me your MuMu addict. Good thing I have two roommates who share that obsession with me and let me borrow their clothes (lol). I’ve got some Benji tees that are currently en route to me (so excited to style them). I digress though. While I like the printed pieces, I find that their solid ones are more versatile (and less memorable aka you can get away with them more haha). This tunic top is so great with jeans — white for summer and medium wash for winter. The flowy sleeves are so fun and I love the cut of the v-neck. This blue color is to die for!

I am always all about the white jeans and this pair I love because of all their distressing. They’re super comfy and under $40! Y’all know I love me some Old Navy jeans. I’ll link my favorite medium wash pair here (both under $40).

My shoes… oh my gosh my shoes. They are seriously my favorite shoes for the summer! So stinking comfy and they look good with everrryyything. The gold adds a nice metallic pop to the outfit too!


How to score Mumu without breaking the bank

Along with my recent obession, I have learned to shop THE SALES. It’s amazing how many smaller boutiques and retailers have sales on MuMu. Fall merchandise is about to start rollin in so summer items are going on sale (including MuMu)! In addition to shopping boutiques, I check MuMu’s sale section pretty frequently and there’s normally some great stuff in there. If all else fails, you can get a Unidays discount for MuMu (10% off) for your full priced items! Ebay and Poshmark can be good too (ya might just have to do some searching) for gently used MuMu.

i just bought

Is anyone else with me on being obsessed with Show me Your Mumu? Make me feel better and comment below!


White on denim

Posted in Fashion
on 06/07/2017

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!!


Striped right | How to style an off the shoulder top + what’s in my bag

Posted in Fashion
on 05/10/2017


I’m coming at you live from Baton Rouge (where I am staying this summer). Can I get a heck yeah?!! Lots and lots of new stuff is comin at ya this summer since I’ve got some more time on my hands!

Let’s get into this week’s post. Featuring this little striped number (I am obsessed with off the shoulder tops right now).

striped-right-lgip-1 striped-right-lgip-10 striped-right-lgip-9 striped-right-lgip-8 striped-right-lgip-7 striped-right-lgip-6 striped-right-lgip-5 striped-right-lgip-4 striped-right-lgip-3 striped-right-lgip-2

Off the shoulder tops.

So fun. So flirty. So summery. In my opinion, one of my favorite trends for warmer weather. Here’s how I styled this one (and I’m not wearing my jean shorts so go me!!). These jeans y’all… My absolute favorite pair ever. They’re under $40 and they’ve been to hell and back. Medium wash goes with everything.

No necklace today, in order to show off the neckline of the top. Instead, I chose some hoop earrings.

These platform sneakers (hello espadrille) are my go-to shoe (besides my TKEES this summer). They’re super comfy and the white and rope combo complements any outfit.  Go out and get you a pair! I’m linking mine below (scored them for under $50).


What’s in my bag?

While taking doing blog photo shoots– this girl comes prepared. I fill my purse to the brim with all the quick fixes. When in need of a touch up, I always carry some lipstick or gloss, and mascara. My current favorites are this mascara (tried and true) and this lip balm. A few other essentials are sunglasses (can never bring too many pairs), extra jewelry (I swear I always decide last minute which earrings I want to rock), and my TKEES for when my feet get tired.

Super big shouts to my friend Maddie for the fabulous pictures. Y’all go give her instagram a peek, she is so talented.


Life Lately | June edition

Posted in Lifestyle
on 06/26/2016

Looking back at my mumble jumble of photos from June, I’ll go ahead an conclude it was a very random and spastic month full of work, blogging, eating, and a few day trips to Baton Rouge and NOLA. How the heck is it almost July?! That means I’m one month closer to being back in my favorite place, Baton Rouge, (and my new home on the lake whee) but also it means one month left being home and seeing friends and family I don’t get to see too often during school. Ugh!! Such conflicting feelings about summer surround me. Well, I’ll get onto babbling about my June… here we goooooo!

IMG_1074A day trip to NOLA to see my bestie was just what I needed to get this month started off on the right foot! Peep our Ray Bans (classic look from both of us). Get mine here and Zach’s here.

IMG_0998Summer time reading is one of my favorites. I’m still delving into the Cuckoo’s Calling, but hoping I can finish soon because I’ve got quite the list piling up!

IMG_1309I think we went overboard with the pineapple pictures during our time at the beach… Oh well.

IMG_8000My diva bestie from NYC came to visit for a few days this month!! We celebrated with watermelon spritzers + cake!! Thankful that our friendship can withstand 1,150 miles.

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetMy dad’s day OOTD consisted of my favorite denim, a simple white top, and my OTBT Bushnells (Update: still obsessed. Don’t plan on giving it up anytime soon).

IMG_8013Call me DIY queen. Summertime is my DIY season since I have more spare time with no school. I ran to Hobby Lobby and snagged all of this for six dollars (go me with my coupons!!). Three necklaces later, and I’m wanting to go back for more.

IMG_1268My future home is coming along quite nicely, don’t ya think? August cannot come soon enough! (Can’t you tell how excited I am to live in this babe with all of my best friends/sisters!) #rushaphi

IMG_1202Walked into Ulta for one thing, and walked out with four…. Oops. I’ve heard only rave reviews about the NYX soft matte lip creams, and Maybelline instant age rewind concealer, so I’m super exited to try!

IMG_1275Probably the best fifty three dollars I have spent this month. This lens is amazing y’all. It rivals the Cannon 55 mm lens (did I mention it’s half the price?!!). I’ll be using this bad boy from now on in my blog pics so stay tuned to see it in action!

IMG_8106Maddie meet LGIP readers, LGIP readers meet Maddie. She’s been with me throughout this whole process and I am so elated to announce that she will be partnering with me to grow my social media. We’ve already taken an online class and plan to take some more to expand our knowledge on the subject. I cannot wait for y’all to see her amazing work!! (PS: this is an upcoming OOTD post… My dress is from Tobi!)

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetForever wishing I could take blog pictures 24/7. When an off day rolls around, you can one hundred percent catch me with my camera in hand.

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetAnd last but not least… my most exciting endeavor for the month of June… an official Louisiana Girl in Pearls instagram. I’ve been reluctant to branch out from my personal instagram just because I would have to start over with all of my followers, but so far the support has been amazing. If you get the chance go ahead and check me out here.

Let me know what y’all have been up to this month!


Palazzo pant play | LGIP OOTD

Posted in Fashion, Lifestyle
on 06/22/2016






Hey hey friends! Dressing up while at the beach is one of my favorite things to do (not sure what it is.. but taking a nice shower and putting on a beach outfit to go with my new tan makes me happy happy). Last week I was in Orange Beach, AL on a  little girls trip so we ended up going to dinner a few times during the course of the week.

Palazzo pants are a summer staple in my closet, and I think they are so easy to dress up or dress down. Since we were headed to a nicer restaurant, I paired these printed palazzos with a plain tank (tied up — aka one of my fave ways to style this Old Navy tank), a long pearl necklace (double wrapped as usual), and my latest obsession — OTBT Bushnell wedges.

get the look

What do y’all wear when you go to dinner at the beach? Give me some ideas for my next beach trip in the comments below!

lots + lots of love,


My top 10 beach essentials | LGIP picks

Give me a few days at the beach and I’ll be in absolute heaven. Of course there is the part of packing up all of my stuff to go there, unpacking, and then packing it all up again that does stress me out… After quite a few beach trips, I’ve got my packing list down pat! I thought I would share this with y’all tonight and hopefully it’ll be helpful!


covergirl mascara // laura mercier tinted moisturizer // s’well bottle // ray ban aviators // earbuds // portable charger // h&m scallop bottom // h&m mesh top // towel // banana boat dry oil // neutrogena dry-touch

I always make sure to pack tons of tanning oil and sunscreen for my face (don’t want those premature wrinkles) in addition to a bunch of fab suits and some shades (Ray Bans of course!!). If you plan to jam to some music while out on the beach, pack a portable charger too so you can power up!! If my skin is breaking out, I’ll throw on some Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and some waterproof mascara (I’ve always loved CG lash blast).

If ya wanna listen to some of my favorite summer tunes, head to my playlist here.

Here’s a few pictures from my trip… and a sneak peek of an upcoming OOTD :-)
