Style Essentials: Jeans

Happy Sunday friends!

I truly believe that finding the perfect jeans are something that everyone struggles with. It has taken me 21 years to find jeans that I can definitively say are THE BEST.

I have two specific fits, from two different stores that I think could work for everyone and for any situation or occasion!

Gap True Skinny Jeans in 360 Stretch $56.00 – $69.99 (Current Sale Price)

These jeans are a recent find of mine and I absolutely LOVE them. The slogan for these jeans is “All around amazing. This premium denim moves everywhere you do. With a true vintage look and feel.” and I couldn’t agree more! I’ve worn these jeans all day and they have the perfect amount of stretch, but don’t stretch out throughout the day. They also fit perfectly. I love the super high-rise, but these also come in a mid-rise. I wear a size 29 (Equivalent of a size 8) for reference!

American Eagle Super Soft High Waisted Jeans $49.95 – $59.95 (Currently Buy One Get One 50% Off)

I discovered these jeans at the beginning of college and I wear them all the time. I have two pairs of the light wash that I will link below, and I wear them constantly. I also love how affordable American Eagle denim is. Once again I love the super high waisted fit, and I wear a size 6 for reference!

Travel With Me: Asheville, North Carolina

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I’m thinking about one of my favorite trips, and places that I have ever been! This past spring break Zach and I went to Asheville, North Carolina and it was an absolute blast. Today I want to share some of my favorite places in the city!

Favilla’s New York Pizza

I think the real reason why we decided to go to Asheville was for this pizza. It is truly the best that I have ever had. Of the four days we were in Asheville, two days worth of lunch and dinner came from this amazing restaurant!

The Asheville Outlets

Zach and I spent an entire morning at these outlets. I love shopping at outlets because you truly can get some awesome deals at the stores. During this trip we went to stores like Gap Factory, Banana Republic Factory, The West Elm Outlet, Starbucks, and the Lindt Chocolate Store.

Downtown Asheville

You could walk around downtown Asheville for hours. There are tons of shops, restaurants, and other activities to occupy an entire day. We went into a lot of shops like the Mast General Store, Voltage Records, and Old North.

Biltmore Village

Biltmore village was one of my favorite parts of the entire trip! Once again we got to walk around and enjoy all of the shops and restaurants. Two of my favorites were The Gardener’s Cottage and The Well-Bred Bakery and Café.

Hole Doughnuts

These doughnuts are absolutely insane, and are definitely worth the line you will have to stand in! We went back the morning that we left for Kentucky because they are just that good!

IMG_4067IMG_4146ACS_0031 2

Biltmore Estate

On our last day in Asheville we went to see everything that Biltmore had to offer. This was an awesome experience, and I definitely think that everyone should see this estate! We got to explore the house, grounds, and conservatory (My absolute favorite!!). We also ate at one of the cafés that are located on the grounds. If you go to Biltmore, make sure to get the ice cream. You’ll thank me later!

IMG_4096IMG_4092IMG_4129IMG_4105IMG_4132 2ACS_0035

Overall I think that Asheville is a great place to go for absolutely anyone! I already want to go back!

If you’ve been to Asheville, North Carolina before, be sure to let me know what was your favorite aspect of the city!

Until next time,

My Summer Home Decor Favorites

Happy Saturday everyone!

As summer has officially begun, I have been searching the internet for home decor pieces that could refresh my space for the warmer months. My style has evolved to be a mixture of Mid-Century Modern, Bohemian, and Traditional Glam. Usually I gravitate towards neutral colors, mixed metals, and wood tones.

Since summer is the time when we see brighter colors, patterns, and a variety of textures, this is what I love to add to a space for the season. All the items that I’ll be sharing today have those brighter colors, patterns, and textures that I love for summer!

My July 4th Outfit Ideas

Welcome back friends!

As July 4th is one week from today, I wanted to share a few outfit ideas for the occasion with you all. I have put together three outfits that one could wear to any July 4th party or cookout. Or if you’re like me, you’ll be celebrating at work on Wednesday!

Outfit #1: Banana Republic Outlet Top $6.00, American Eagle Jeans $19.99 (60% Off!), and Target Sandals $15.99

This outfit is the most casual to me. I think this type of look would be perfect for any cookout or outdoor party! Plus, I wear these jeans literally every single day, and they are currently on a super sale for $19.99!!

IMG_5734IMG_5726IMG_5738IMG_5731

Outfit #2: Mailey Rose T-Shirt $39.00, Old Navy Denim Skirt $29.99 (Currently Out Of Stock), Target Sandals $15.99

I just recently discovered Mailey Rose and they have the cutest things like this T-Shirt. I love that there is a pop of red so that I can have red, white, and blue in my look. With my skin tone, hair color, and eye color I’m usually drawn to blues more than reds, so I love the pop that the cherries give on this tee!

IMG_5762IMG_5794IMG_5753

Outfit #3: Gap Flutter Sleeve Dress $49.95, Target Sandals $15.99

This dress from Gap is one of the softest pieces that I own. This is what I will most likely be wearing to work on the Fourth of July. I love that this piece can be dressed up or down, and how comfortable it is!

IMG_5809IMG_5851IMG_5826IMG_5806

I hope that you all got some outfit inspiration for all of your patriotic festivities this upcoming week! Let me know what you’ll be wearing for July 4th in the comments below!

My Garden Box: Box #6

Happy Sunday everyone!

A few days ago I received another box from My Garden Box, and I can’t wait to share what was inside with all of you! This plant was definitely the strangest, and probably my favorite of all the plants that have come to me in this subscription box.

IMG_5669IMG_5670IMG_5671IMG_5672

This month’s theme was “Big Twister”. In this box we received:

  • 1 Plant
  • 1 Fiberglass Pot that looks like concrete (My favorite pot of all time)
  • 1 Package of Soil
  • 1 Packet of Small Pebbles
  • 1 Info Sheet
  • 1 Wooden Name Tag
  • 1 Pair of Small Pruning Shears
  • 1 Magnet

IMG_5673

This plant is super cool to me! I love any plant that is quirky and this one definitely doesn’t look like anything I’ve ever seen before!

IMG_5683IMG_5677IMG_5681IMG_5674

I think this plant is absolutely beautiful. I placed it on my windowsill so that it would get enough light. The combination of the plant, pot, and the pebble topper is definitely one of the prettiest in my collection!

As you all know, I’m obsessed with this subscription box and have loved receiving a new plant friend every month!

I still believe that this box is an amazing value and is perfect for any plant lover! As a reminder the subscription that I purchased was the 6 Month “My Monthly Plant” box. Since I prepaid for the six months, the price per box was $19.50 per box.

That is such as awesome price for how much you get in each box! I definitely recommend checking this subscription service out!
