How to rock the overall trend this summer

Posted in Uncategorized
on 05/24/2017

Ok you guys, I know what you’re thinking. Overalls? WTF. Honestly, that was my first reaction too, so I don’t blame ya. Yeah, I know they’re so 90’s and honestly remind me of what I used to wear as a child BUT I’m sharing with y’all how I styled these babies that’ll make you feel fun and funky (double trouble). By the end of this post you’re gonna find yourself headed out to buy a pair.

styling-overalls-5-lgip First off, the overalls.

They’re from Target and were actually handed down to me from a friend (who texted me after she saw these pics saying she wished she would’ve kept them) so I literally paid nothing for em. I’m gonna link a similar pair from Target here (and more below all this). They originally had a rolled cuff, but I decided I liked the raw hem better so I took a pair of scissors to them!

Stylin’ the overalls

Before deciding on a PLAIN BLACK TANK I tried on about 7 shirts (OTS, plain t-shirts, printed t-shirts… you get the point). I was already nervous about rocking the overalls so I didn’t want to do anything too cray cray, which is why the black tank won in the end.
In an attempt to jazz up the outfit, I added a neck scarf (literally a $2 bandana from Walmart) and some blue mirrored sunglasses. Speaking of the sunglasses, I just recently purchased and I love them!! As a self-proclaimed Ray Ban freak — it was hard for me to step outside of the box and get a pair of sunglasses that aren’t Ray Bans. But… I did it (go me)!! These sunnies are from QUAY and they are so fun. I’ll link them here for y’all. My Adidas Superstars finished everything off (remember when I was die hard obsessed with these? lol).
Have y’all jumped on the overalls bandwagon? If so, DM me your pics on instagram or comment them below! I need more inspo on how I can rock these things.


Life lately | October edition

What’s good y’all?! October was a pretty good month! Here’s my recap…

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

So I’ve been working a research paper for my stage makeup class + I have to say it’s honestly the most fun paper I’ve ever written. The 1920s are such an intriguing time and so much action was happening in the world and the cosmetic industry. I’ve been doing loads of research and that may or may not have included a trip to my favorite destination, Barnes and Noble… #oops

I’ve been on the hunt for a job for as long as I can remember (honestly about 4 months y’all… this ain’t no joke). But…. I’m over the moon to announce I’ve finally got one!! Come visit me at Hemline Towne Center! Working for Hemline is something that I believe will really help me with my future career in the fashion industry so I cannot wait to start getting into the swing of things!

My #OOTD post this month featured this adorable (and affordable) tunic sweater. I paired it with some jeans + lace up chunky heels to dress it up. The perfect fall outfit!! Now if I could just get some cooler weather down here…

Alpha Phi had our family weekend when we played Southern Miss so naturally my family came down to see me. Spending some much-needed time with them was just what I needed to finish this semester strong! Shouts to them for coming tailgating on the Parade Grounds with me! #myparentsarecoolerthanme

My favorite fall lip products

Posted in Uncategorized
on 10/19/2016

In honor of my favorite trend for fall, I took it upon myself to set out on a mission: find the best fall lip products for under $20. I’d like to think I’m somewhat of a lipstick connoisseur. Not as knowledgeable as those who know every single shade to ever come out of the hands of Nars, Annatasia Beverly Hills or Bobbi Brown — but one of those who has about 11 different lip products in my arsenal. Knowing a thing or two about lipstick, I rummaged though the internet and complied this list… Here we go!


fall-lips-1-lgip fall-lips-2-lgip fall-lips-3-lgip fall-lips-4-lgip fall-lips-5-lgip


the matte nude | anatasia beverly hills liquid lipstick in stripped

Matte is all the rage this year + I have to say I was super reluctant to jump on the bandwagon but I did it. A matte nude lip is perfect for any outfit, casual or dressy. This liquid lipstick comes in at $18, so it is on the pricey side, but it won’t break the bank.

the deep purple red | revlon just bitten lip balm + stain in crush

I’ve talked about this one probably 5000 times, but it’s just because I love it. When you first put it on, it’s a deep purply-looking red but then as it wears off and leaves the stain it becomes a hot pink color. Formals, weddings, or a night out are my favorite places to wear this one!

the rosy pink | revlon lip butter in pink truffle

The most easy to wear color there is. Pair it with anything + it’ll go perfect. I just found out today that this specific color is discontinued, but I would recommend any color Revlon lip butter, especially the color Juicy Papaya.

the grape | clique different lipstick in a different grape

Here’s a great statement fall color that is easy to wear too! Great for casual outings, but I feel like I could wear this one for a dressy occasion as well. Clique lipsticks are the bomb, so check this out

Life Lately | September Edition

Posted in Uncategorized
on 10/09/2016

October here I come! September was mostly me getting back into the swing of things with school and such, so not too many exciting things happened.. (oops!) I will say that you can expect less lifestyle sort of posts from me from now on — I’m aiming to post more fashion related things on LGIP now. With that being said, let’s get on with it!


Oh, what a night this was… Known as none other than Boys Bid Night (aka LSU Greek Life’s favorite night of the year). Our new members came to join us in getting dressed up + having the first night of fun with their new sissies!


Gameday is back + better than ever!! I’ve struggled each weekend finding an outfit considering I own nothing purple or gold. It’s been hot as hades for each game so far, so jeans have not been an option for me. I’m awaiting the cooler weather as patiently as possible.


If you haven’t read my most recent post, go ahead and click here! My pledge class + I got our littles this month! We had such a fantastic time crafting for them + reveal was the icing on the cake! In all honestly, I was totally suffocating being wrapped up in this get up for twenty long minutes.


Fall Grub was a success!! The theme was ESPhiN, so pretty much anything sports-related went! My date and I went as Tom Brady + Gisele, so I donned a VS robe for the night! Creativity levels were at an all time high that night as I saw some corn dogs (LSU fans are known as corn dogs, so we love to poke fun at it), field goals, famous basketball players, football players + a few WAGS.


We had our very first Taco night in our new house this month! All of the proceeds go to the Alpha Phi Foundation, and we opened our beautiful new home up and served some tacos. These Alpha Phi baseball tees are my favorite shirt from this year so far!! It goes great with some jean shorts, athletic shorts, or yoga pants!


If you follow me on my personal Instagram, or just know me in real life, you would know my unfailing love for One Direction. Niall’s new song is the sweetest thing I’ve ever listened to and I swear to y’all, I actually cried while listening to it #noshame.

See, I told y’all my September was boring… I can’t wait for y’all see some new fashion posts coming to LGIP this month!!


Life lately | August edition

Posted in Uncategorized

August was by far one of my craziest months I have experienced this year. It was a  whirlwind of things – including moving into my sorority house, 4 week long recruitment/polish week, and so so much more.

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetSeeking some off time, my family and I headed to beach the first week of August. We explored Grayton Beach, Watercolor, and Seaside. In dire need of some outfit photos, I made my sister help me shoot this OOTD. I did a post on it here.

IMG_9370My sisters and I moved into our brand new house this month! Although our move in date was pushed back a week, I can say that the wait was well worth it. Walking into our permanent home for the first time is something I will never forget.

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetIn the weeklong break between the flood and rush, we didn’t have much to do. One night we ended up going out to dinner and I shot an OOTD. These white flare jeans are my favorite for any fun dinner or night out! Here’s the post.

IMG_9339The gallery wall in my room was a labor of love. It took me about 45 minutes to get the entire wall planned out and executed. A room tour will be coming soon, but for now I’ll just leave y’all with this as a sneak peek!

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetHappy first day of 14th grade from Catherine and I! An obligatory first day of school picture was taken with coffee in hand and our favorite tees on. My school uniform consists of a big tee and athletic shorts (these forever 21 shorts are my fave).

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetMeet my roomies! Kayla is in the middle and Catherine on the right. We are having such an amazing time living in the house so far! I’m so happy they are able to put up with my excessive need to clean the room every single day.

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetRush lasted for about four weeks for us this year. Due to the flood, we ended up having to push everything back two weeks. On our first day of ice water (finally), my CHOPS gals and I had to take a picture. My dress is from American Apparel, and necklace is from stella & dot.

Processed with VSCO with c1 presetRoomies that match together, stay together. Catherine and I ended up having the same romper for sisterhood round, so a picture was in order. Sisterhood round was by far my favorite of all the rounds because I think it’s one of our chapter’s strong suits.

IMG_9483MAMA WE MADE IT! Bid day 2016 was honestly the best day we’ve had this year. Being on the other side of things is so much more enjoyable. Our theme was the Color Run, so pink, blue and yellow were our colors. We covered ourselves in glitter, jewels, and wore candy chokers — and got prepared to welcome all of our new babies (115 of them) into this amazing sisterhood!

With all that being said, September here I come!


4 planners to help curb your disorganization

Posted in Uncategorized
on 07/14/2016

plan it out! // erin condren // whitney english // may designs

Well, I was expecting to post on Wednesday as I normally do but I ended up falling asleep at 6pm and sleeping through the night (whoops). My sleep schedule is extremely chaotic at the moment, y’all. In a fit of  trying to mentally prepare myself for the upcoming school year, I have been reading up on planners of every type. For the past four years, I have used the Lilly Pulitzer Planner and I have really loved it but I’m looking for something different this school year (maybe I’m getting more sophisticated or something…? Lol).

I’ve narrowed down my choices to these four and I have to say I am having a super hard time deciding. The May Designs Agenda is bound, which I love the idea of because my spirals always seem to fall apart mid year. It is a smaller size than the rest though, and I am worried I won’t able to fit it all, but it would be great to throw in my bag and take on the go. The agenda is the front runner in my mind right now. It is business on the front and a real party on the inside. One of my fave features of this agenda is that it does not have lines under each day in the week view. I’m sure y’all have heard of the Erin Condren Life Planner™ at some point or another. It’s a customizable planner with the option of vertical or horizontal week layout (which I love) as well as the option to design your own cover that can be interchangeable. It is the most expensive out of the bunch, but it sure does a lot! Lastly, the Whitney English Day Designer™ is standing out for me because it’s set up on the week view by time. Being a full-time college student, treasurer of my sorority, working a part-time job and blogging — I’m thinking a timed schedule might just be what I need!

Have y’all been able to decide on one planner out of the millions for this school year? Pretty please leave me a comment helping me to decide which I should get for this year! 


5 ways to grow your blog like a pro

on 06/30/2016


Lately I’ve been scavenging the internet with every spare minute I can get trying to gather information about blogging and how to increase traffic to my blog and social media. My eventual hope for LGIP is for it to propel me into the fashion industry, so I may use it as a stepping stone for future endeavors. I wanted to compile a master list of helpful links for any blogger (whether you’ve had for blog for 3 months or 5 years).

// Creating an instagram feed that is cohesive by Marrianna Hewitt //

Marianna’s advice is golden. She’ll talk you through the use of editing apps on your phone such as VSCO (one of my favorites), Snapseed, and Darkroom. A must read if you’re looking for a feed to marvel the insta famous.

// Scouting photo locations by Hayley Jones //

If you’ve ever taken blog pictures before you know how hard it is to consistently find new and innovative places to shoot. Hayley has a great take on scouting locations like a pro. Take a peek to plan your next shoot’s locale!

// Skyrocket your Pinterest growth by Blogging for Keeps //

Blogging for Keeps has quickly become my go-to website for all things blog-sphere (er, is that even a word). Blair and Jess know how to use Pinterest in a way that’ll get your name out there and keep it out there. From setting up a Pinterest business account, to using rich pins with graphics — you’ll be a Pinterest rockstar in no time at all.

// Creating the perfect blog worthy photo by Paula //

Having some trouble getting the perfect blog pictures? Paula has you covered with this post. She covers the basics and shares some of her insight into how she edits her photos and stages them. I took a whole lot of tips from this one!

// How to find your own unique voice by Tanea // 

Finding my own voice is something I am still struggling with to this day. Tanea has a great way of explaining how fitting in with your niche is not going to get you anywhere — you must find where you can stand out (I know this sounds so cliche). Here’s 7 helpful hints to do so!

I hope y’all enjoyed this roundup of some links I’ve found to be extremely helpful. The fun of blogging is to be able to share the love! Let me know if y’all have found any other links that you find helpful!
