July Favorites


A new thing I've decided to blog about (thanks to the consistency of some of my favorite you tubers with this subject - Sarahbelle and Meghan Rienks) is my monthly favorites! I divided it into a few categories and decided to pick one or two things for each one a month. I love reading or watching these types of posts for new ideas for products to try out, foods to eat, etc. Hope you enjoy!


  • Fashion: My fashion favorite for this month has to be Wild Fox Couture! I'm so into graphic tees lately and Wild Fox has some of the cutest ones out there. I recently bought a pair of sunglasses from Nordstrom Rack that happened to be Wildfox (post ft. these glasses here) and got online and discovered the brand further.
  • Food: Speaking of food... This month has been all about just that. Going on vacation and planning my grad party has been a whirlwind of food thoughts and plans and actions. Down in Charleston, the heartland of southern food, you can find all sorts of gems. My favorite? A slender little biscuit shop on King St. Callie's Hot Little Biscuits started forming a line as soon as the doors opened at 8 am! And for good reason. My favorite is the cheese and chive biscuit, but truthfully I just love them all. photo: {via}
  • Music: My favorite song right now is Paris by The 1975. I am absolutely in love with it and can not stop playing it. A close second would be George Ezra's Blame It on Me and Eric Church's Record Year.
  • Beauty: This month I tried a new foundation and concealer. My skin has been irritated lately and I didn't have much else to blame it on besides makeup. I started using Bare Minerals foundation and cover up. I love it so much! It has a sheer coverage that gives me a natural look which is exactly what I want. P.s. thanks so much to the always helpful ladies at Ulta for recommending me this product!

    Pink and Green Palm Leaf Romper


    The picture above is a fun shot of me frolicking a pretty park in the heart of Berlin. This was the first day of a 12 day trip to four different cities in Eastern Europe. Travel Diaries for each city are coming soon!
    To start this outfit post lets talk about my romper! I picked it up at my local Nordstrom's in the Topshop section. I loved the colors and the flattering waist line it gives with the little string tie it comes with. I also loved the neckline which is perfect for a bralette! I wore my black bralette from Urban Outfitters. The colors in the romper made me so happy that I had to pair it with my recent impulse buy (oops, at least it was on sale) - These Wild Fox Couture pink sunglasses. I love the cat eye look, and of course the color. My purse was an Old Navy last minute purchase before my trip. I wanted a cheap cross body for traveling so far, just in case anything were to happen to it. I absolutely loved this bag because 1. It zips - no stressing about things falling out! 2. The neutral coloring worked for all my outfits, and 3. It has the cutest tassel zipper ever! I caved on the puff ball keychain fad and bought one of my own. I saw a super cute pin on Pinterest (why is this line how all of my outfit stories start??? I think I have an addiction...) with a grey cross body and a ballerina pink puff ball keychain and I just knew that was the color I wanted! 
    Here are a few more shots of me at the Berlin Wall sporting my outfit! Read more about the Berlin Wall in my up and coming travel diary on Berlin!

    My Agenda Picks For 2016 - 17

    Agendas have become increasingly popular over the past few years, for more than just writing down your everyday activities. The "look" of your agenda becomes your school supply color scheme, and a common prop in your coffee shop study sesh pictures. So naturally, your agendas aesthetic is somewhat important. I've rounded up some of my favorite agenda's from various brands, different from the usual Lilly Pulitzer new releases. Don't get me wrong, the Lilly agendas are all fabulously designed, but sometimes switching it up here and there can do a little good. Have at it, happy shopping!
