Suiting Up For Summer

Hey guys!

It seems like summer has hit all of a sudden. As the temperature heats up, and the pool at my apartment complex reopens today, I thought I would bring you all along on my quest for the perfect solid black, one-piece bathing suit.

Black bathing suits have always been my preferred type of swimwear, but instead of focusing on two-piece suits, this year I want to find the perfect one-piece.

P.S. Yes, I know that Key Colony is perfection. I dream about this place every single day!

Purchasing swimwear can be daunting, but there are five suits that I’ve found online at Old Navy and Target that I think will be perfect for me. These are suits that I could wear to the pool, but I could also throw on a pair of denim shorts and a button up after a long day at the pool to go grab food with some friends!

#1: Halter Underwire Swimsuit for Women $44.99

Spring Fashion 2018

Raise your hand if you think winter has overstayed its welcome!

If you’re anything like me, once the middle of March hits, I am ready to put away the sweaters and boots and bring out the sandals and tank tops!

Today I am going to be sharing FIVE spring outfits that I have put together recently. All of the pieces are on trend for 2018, and even better, they are all affordable and under $50!

Outfit #1: Floral Tank Top (This one is sold out, but here is a similar one for $19.99!), Black Jeans $49.95, Metallic Sandals $19.99


I love this outfit because florals are always in style for spring! Also, you could throw a cardigan over this top and be good to go on these colder spring days. As you all know I love my black jeans, and I think that they make the bright colors of this floral tank really stand out!

Outfit #2: Denim Jacket $29.99, Basic T-Shirt $5.99, Leggings $24.99, Black Nike Tanjuns $64.99


I LOVE this outfit. I wear this at least once a week because it is so comfortable for my full days of classes, but still looks like you put in some effort. Denim is super trendy for spring this year, and this denim jacket has barely left my body since I purchased it!

Outfit #3: Chambray Flutter Top $24.99, Black Jeans $49.95, Braided Brown Sandals $15.99


As I said above, denim is super popular this spring and this chambray shirt also has that denim look. I love the detail on this top and wanted to highlight it by wearing my black jeans, and basic brown sandals!

Outfit #4: Grey Cardigan $24.99, White T-Shirt $5.99, Leggings $24.99, Black Nike Tanjuns $64.99


This is another one of my favorite outfits! I found the cardigan and t-shirt at TJ Maxx in Lexington earlier this year and I absolutely love them. This is another outfit that I usually wear once a week because it is perfect for my long days on campus! This cardigan is also one of the best transitional pieces I own, as it isn’t too heavy while still being warm!

Outfit #5: White Button Up $22.49, Light Wash Jeans $49.95, Braided Brown Sandals 15.99


This is probably my favorite of all of these outfits because of its simplicity. These pieces could be worn to class, to grocery shop, to dinner, to the movies, or to any other place you could think of! I am loving button ups for spring and this one from Gap Factory is one of my favorites that I’ve found. I paired this shirt with light wash jeans to keep the look light and airy, and once again I’m wearing my favorite braided sandals from Target!

Most of these pieces came from either Gap Factory, TJ Maxx, or Target. As a college student on a budget, these stores are awesome places to get great pieces at even better prices!

I hope that you all enjoyed these spring outfits, and I’m praying that the warm weather will come soon!

2017 Best of Fashion

Hey guys!

Today is day two of my long weekend of favorites! Today I’ll be going through the clothing items that I would not have been able to survive without during 2017!

The reason that I love most of these items is that they can be worn during almost every season. As I’m looking back on these items, and times that I’ve worn them, I’m realizing that I have worn each of these items during at least two seasons of the year.


A New Day Chunky Cowl Neck Sweater $29.99

I truly don’t know what I wore during the fall and winter months before I found these sweaters. This is an extremely flattering, warm, and trendy sweater from Target’s new brand A New Day. I have the sweater in both White and Camel, and would get all of the other colors if they were still in stock at a Kentucky store! I am wearing a size medium for reference. I love wearing these sweaters with leggings and boots like in the photo on the right. This outfit is so cozy, but also makes me look put together.

Black High Waisted Jeans $49.95

black jeans

American Eagle is where I get all of my jeans, and this past August I decided to redo my jean collection. I wanted high waisted jeans, and a variety of washes. At first I was nervous about purchasing black jeans, as I didn’t think I would wear them that often, but I have proven myself wrong! I wear these jeans at least once a week, and they are my most worn pair of my new collection. Above I have them pictured with a Zara sweater that I can guarantee will be in my 2018 Fashion Favorites. Not pictured here, but they are further down in this post, are the booties that I wore with this outfit yesterday!

Black and White Flannel $49.00

This flannel is the perfect transitional piece for my wardrobe. I bought this from Urban Outfitters in the early fall, and have been wearing it ever since. This is a high-low flannel and it is not as thick as most other flannels on the market. I am wearing a size XS for reference! I usually pair this piece with light wash jeans, or my black jeans, and booties!

Cropped Leggings $29.99


These cropped leggings are what got me through the summer and the fall. They are from Target and they are the best fitting leggings I have ever seen. Also, the have POCKETS! As you can see, I stocked up on these and could wear a new pair every day for a solid 7 days. I usually pair these with a sweatshirt or a T-shirt, but I also wear them with sweaters and tall boots towards the end of the week when I am running out of clothes.

-Short Sleeved Ruffle Top $45.00

This shirt was purchased from Urban Outfitters in the spring of 2017, and was one of my go to tops in the spring and summer. I am a size Medium in this piece. It is a garment dyed top that is a faded green color. My favorite way to wear this in the spring was with jeans and sandals. Once the summer hit, I traded in the jeans for high waisted denim shorts, and I was set!

-Sleeveless Burgundy Lace Top $20.00

I’ve had this top for awhile now and I absolutely love it! I purchased it from TJ Maxx and I can wear this piece during any time of the year. Also, I am a size Small in this top! In the spring and fall I wore this with jeans and sandals. In the summer I wore it with denim shorts, and in the winter I can pair this with jeans, a cardigan, and riding boots or booties!

-3/4 Sleeve Purple Lauren Conrad Top $30.00

This was one of my go to tops during the spring of 2017. I got this piece from Kohl’s and am a size Medium. I could dress this top up with jeans and booties, or dress it down with leggings and white Converse.


The Giving Keys Liza Koshy Choker $45.00

This choker is the one that I’m wearing in the photo with the black and white Urban Outfitters flannel. I purchased this in the fall of 2017, but I have worn it with almost every outfit since I purchased it. It is the perfect layering piece, or to be worn on its own like I have it in the photo. Another cool thing about this necklace is the company that makes it. The Giving Keys is a company based in Los Angeles that employs people transitioning out of homelessness. When you purchase from them, you’re helping someone better themselves, and I think that is worth every penny.

Field and Stream Cabin Socks $12.99

These socks are a new addition to my life, but I am never going back to other socks. These are the softest, thickest, warmest socks you will ever put on your feet. I purchased 6 pairs and am sure that I’ll get more before the winter is over. They are perfect to wear with boots of any kind, or just during a lazy day at home! Also, they are buy one get one FREE at Dick’s Sporting Goods at the moment.


Nike Tanjuns in Black $59.99

Suede Booties in Taupe $29.95

These are the shoes that I wore the most during 2017. The black Nikes are the shoes that I wore almost every single day during the first semester of this school year. They are so comfortable, and go with nearly any outfit.

The Taupe booties I purchased last fall, but I have been wearing them out this year! I love the shade they are, and the texture of the suede adds an interesting texture to any outfit that you wear them with. These shoes are also super comfortable, even to walk to class in!
