I am beyond excited to finally be sharing the last outfit that I shot with Madi Dombrowski because it is my favorite out of the three. See the first look here, and the second here.

I am about to start my sophomore year at Stephens College and I am really excited about it. I really found myself this past year not only in style but on the inside as well. Style does plays a huge role on who you are and it definitely is starting to shape me as a person. This year I plan to take risks; not only fashion risks but life risks as well. My goal is to explore more, try new things and meet new people. Life is all about experiences and I want to fill this next year with lots of them. Something I also want to focus on is being my best self and not comparing myself to others. This is the key to confidence, and with confidence you can do it all.

This all sounds kind of cheesy but these are real things that are important to me and I can’t wait to follow these goals to live my best life.

Yellow tinted sunglasses have been all the rage this Summer and after I bought this pair I understood why; they make this outfit. This outfit is the right amount of everything. The flowy pants make it carefree but the denim jacket and sneakers edge it up a bit and add some structure.

I hope this post gives off at least some inspiration. I have a lot planned so stay tuned.

VLOG 1 : SUMMER 2017 ROAD TRIP – NEW ORLEANS, PANAMA CITY BEACH, ST. AUGUSTINE, SAVANNAH

Hi! Thanks so much for watching my video. I have never done anything like this before in fear of what people would think or if people would even watch. I realized how much I love looking back on good memories and thought this would be a fun way to do so. I am so awkward in this video because I’m not used to this but, I had fun with it and plan to make more and hopefully get more comfortable talking to the camera in public places.

New Orleans 7/22/17 – 7/24/17

My family is super into road trips and we take a long one pretty much every Summer. I am pretty active on Instagram during these vacations but have never blogged (or vlogged) about them so this is a first! We’re stopping in a few different cities this week and each city will have its own blog post including my outfits and some other photos!

ALSO – in one of my recent blog posts, I mentioned how I wanted to better one of my social media channels and I am happy to say that I am officially bringing back my Youtube channel starting with a vlog from this trip once it’s all over! I have never vlogged before so it may be a little rough but I am going to try to get used to it and do it more regularly, showing a more accurate representation of my life. I also plan on creating some fashion videos and films as well so stay tuned. I am so excited to see everything come together!

L’Occitane Summer Treasures 14 Piece Set

Hello! I have recently partnered up with L’Occitane to try out their new Summer Treasures set! I was so excited to receive this package in the mail!

This packaging is absolutely beautiful and the products are even better. This set includes 14 amazing beauty products and you get to open them in an Advent calendar style! I love every single product in here but want to focus on my favorites.

  • Immortelle Essential Water : I have been super into hydrating sprays recently. They are a good way to wake up and refresh your skin. I love this one especially because it makes my skin feel tight and ready for the day.
  • Verbena Body Lotion : This may sound strange but I am definitely not a lotion person because of how greasy it makes me feel. However, this lotion is awesome! It leaves my skin soft and smooth and not greasy!! It’s perfect.
  • Shea Butter Lip Balm : I love my matte lip stains but they are so drying. I started putting this lip balm on before the stain and my lips didn’t dry out and the lip color stayed on for just as long.
  • Cherry Blossom Hand Cream : Again, I usually don’t like lotions but this is the perfect amount of moisture.
  • Divine Youth Oil : I put this oil under my eyes before I go to bed and I wake up feeling refreshed. My eyes look more awake, even if I did only get 3 hours of sleep.
  • Peony Perfecting Face Cream : Last but DEFINITELY not least! This face cream is incredible. I have pretty sensitive skin and this product was amazing on it. I put it on before my makeup in the morning and then again, right before bed. It leaves my skin smooth and smells so good. I will be ordering this in the full size right when I run out!

This set makes a great gift or is perfect for yourself. It is a good way to test out the brand to see if it is a good fit for you before purchasing full size items. And- it’s only $49!!! You can purchase your own Summer Treasures Set, here!

I am so thankful to have partnered up with this amazing company! I hope you enjoyed this slightly different blog post and would love some feedback!

Festival Fashion 2017 Series – 1/3

Festival season is well upon us and everyone loves festival fashion so I am going to do a three part music festival style inspired series! I am unfortunately not going to any huge music festivals as of now but I’m maybe hoping to attend a smaller one sometime this Summer.

For this look, my top and bottoms are basic but I threw on a bunch of accessories and a statement kimono. Fringe is definitely a huge trend within festival fashion and this kimono is perfect for lots of movement! I shot some with and without it because I liked the simplistic look underneath as well.

This is the perfect outdoor concert outfit. I actually wore it this past Tuesday to see The 1975! It was such a good show and I was comfortable and felt cute in this outfit the whole time. Also side note- these shorts to me at first were so ugly but now I am in love with how vintage they look + they were only $1 at a thrift store!!!

Be sure to follow me to be notified when the next two outfits of this series are up!
