This summer we have seen the pool float trend literally take over pools. I’ve jumped on board and grabbed myself a strawberry icing donut float and now I’m contemplating grabbing a pretzel float (one of my favorite snacks BTW) and a flamingo float! I mean I am from Florida so I do spend a majority of my time floating around in the pool on the weekends!

Which pool float is your favorite?

Chambray is forever staple whether it’s in the fall or summer. I personally love to style my chambray pieces with more casual and neutral items to look laid-back. Plus, there is nothing better than being casual and comfy and adding a little bit of bling on to your feet!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Mother’s Day is May 10th aka right around the corner (trust me it will sneak up fast). I’ve gathered some of my favorite gifts to give my Mom and some of her  favorite gifts to receive whether it’s from me, my brother or Dad! I’d say my favorite is the Fujifilm Instax Instant Film Camera because it captures memories and what’s better than that? My other favorites are the Tory Burch Fit Bit, they have been a must lately..I’ve been dying to get my hands on one but have yet to! You can also never go wrong with a pair of comfy slippers or a new bath robe either!

I wasn’t kidding in my instagram when I said I’ll be in this romper all summer long…and the sandals too. This romper is going to be perfect for going out or even wearing as a beach cover up…and the sandals. I’ll probably wear them out in a month because I will wear them nonstop. Plus, they are $125 and SO CUTE. I’m deciding on if I should get the pair in black too!

Well y’all, New York was a great time but I’m worn out. And by worn out I mean absolutely EXHAUSTED..like I need a full body massage and a weeks vacation of laying in my bed. I bought a new pair of Nike’s because my feet were aching by the 3rd day from walking 6 miles a day. This trip definitely prepared me for when I move to NYC in August but boy am I grateful to be headed to Florida right now! I’m actually in the airport as we speak doing some people watching!

Hope everyone had a great week!

(I apologize for my green socks..but hey! they match my bag)

Someone please tell me where the time has gone? I can’t believe it’s already for spring time! Don’t get me wrong I’m so excited for spring I just can’t believe how quickly time has flown by..even in my college career! I’m so excited I finally got to pull down my white jeans from the top shelf of my closet. So consider this my first white jeans post of the year!

It has been so miserably cold in Alabama the last few weeks that all I’ve wanted to wear is black and nothing else. It makes me think about how I’m going to survive New York City in the fall when it gets even colder up there. Yikes! And NOW, it’s finally warm out but it’s pouring rain. I wish the weather would just make up it’s mind..because I just want sunny and 75!

Any who, I’m headed to NYC on Sunday for my interviews. Anybody have any tips or tricks and the where to’s I should hit up in the big city?

Y’all Alabama has been SO cold! It snowed Wednesday night but of course all the snow disappeared in the morning!  All I wanted to do was take cute pictures in it, but I didn’t get the chance. Anyway, we are suppose to have decent weather this week so I’m excited to get the chance to put on shorts when I walk to class! (Yup, it’s come down to looking forward to that).

Hope y’all have a great Monday!
