In Bloom

Ughhhh I just love Spring so I made a Spring themed collage! Okay so I am actually obsessed with these heels, I first saw them on one of my fave blogger’s (McKenna Bleu) Instagram and I had to hunt them down! Also ever since Gucci revamped their double logo belt, I’ve been hooked. I love this floral one but I think this summer I might have to treat myself to the black one, I’ve been obsessing for awhile over it. I think for the past year and a half I have really felt myself transition to quality over quantity, meaning I’d rather pay more for something and invest in it if I know it will last me long time. Now I’m not putting an end to all inexpensive fast fashion stores (lol because I’m broke) but quality is definitely more appealing to me now. I mean it’s called fast fashion for a reason, it’s meant to be worn and thrown away, that’s why it’s so cheap, so take that as you will.

Also look at me and my retail vocabulary, looks like this college thing is starting to work! Thanks for reading guys!! p.s. click the pictures for links!

black and white heels // similar vanity // curtains // bracelet holder // star lights // twinkle lights // makeup holders found at Target dollar area! I have this one at school! // magazine cutouts are all W Mag. or Teen Vogue // I have A LOT of stuff in my room, so it’s hard to link it all!!

Since  I have shared my dorm room, post here, I figured I would share my room at home! I know the pictures are dark, I’m not going to lie I took the pictures at night.. I tried to link to a lot of the stuff in my room if any of you all are interested but I literally have so much stuff in my room and none of it is really new either. Also these pictures were taken while I was home on break, so I definitely plan on doing an updated room tour over the summer, I think that one will be a little more accurate.

When it comes to my room, I don’t really have a theme or anything, it’s just colorful and filled with crafty stuff and little knickknacks. I like to call myself a walking Pinterest Board, so many of the things are diy crafts. I kind of just moved into the spare bedroom in my house, so I had to spice up the white walls and make it my own, hence the color explosion. My dorm room looks a little different just because I had a blank canvas to work with. I’m also in the process of adding and taking away some things just to make it appear a little more “grown up” and simplistic. I love decorating and adding colorful pieces and definitely can’t wait until I move into my first apartment (junior year I’m waiting on ya!)

Warm Weather Vibes

1 / 2  / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11
#11 doesn’t have a number but its the romper!
We’ve been having really warm weather lately and it’s making me crave spring and summer. It’s crazy that it’s in the 50s and 60s in February, it’s pretty great (even though the polar bear’s homes are melting 🙁 ) It just makes me want to be in cute dresses, flowy tops and sandals so I put together some of the things I want!
I’ve always wanted one of these. I’m a fan of pullovers, they’re just easy to wear with pretty much anything. And the print adds some fun color to any outfit!
I honestly don’t have many clutches but I definitely want to hop on the embroidered bag trend, maybe a fun crossbody bag too! I have been eyeing these fun bags since last summer, so it is definitely a must have for me! p.s. this one’s cute too!
3. Tassles + Dresses
I love a good warm weather dress, and I definitely want to get more. They’re so easy! Put on a dress and you basically have a whole outfit. I also am really feeling the tassel trend. I have a few shirts with tassels on them but I definitely want more because they’re just so fun and creative, perfect for summer. The one pictured is currently sold out but I want this one too!
4. A light colored bag
I actually really like this Rebecca Minkoff bag, it’s like a blush suede, and I’m enjoying it. I really like the Mini Mac because it’s a great crossbody bag, and a nice size! I like this one too!
I’ve wanted these for awhile now but I just kept buying other things before them, so these beauties are definitely at the top of my list for this summer!
6. Bathing Suits
I have this thing where I see bathing suits (and sunglasses) and blackout and then the next thing I know I have 400 bathing suits (and sunglasses). So last summer I told my self to chill out and only bought two tops, they were $4 from H&M so I had to (at least thats what I told myself). I also got rid of a bunch because I am a bigger size in tops now, so I honestly do need a few more this summer…
7. Shirts
I get bored with my tops pretty quickly. I always end up giving them away or trading clothes with my friends, but I definitely want to pick up some cute blouses and t-shirts!
8. Pom Pom Sandals
I really want some of these sandals, but honestly I want to diy them myself. I love being crafty and college has limited my craftiness, so I may tackle them over spring break or later!
9. Embroidered Shorts
You guys know I’m loving the embroidered trend and each summer there is always some super cute short trend and this is one I want to hop onto.
10. White Jeans
I’ve been wanting a pair for awhile, I’ll definitely be taking advantage of my discount and grabbing these.
11. Rompers
Probably the easiest summer outfit ever! Some of mine shrunk, or I grew or something, so I definitely want to get some more.
That pretty much wraps up what’s on my summer wishlist. I just can’t wait to be in the warm sun and in cute summer clothing! Thanks for reading and please share some of your warm weather wishlist items!!

Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC (sky color is sold out 🙁 ) // Kate Spade Darla baby wallet // portable charger // Bean Boot key chain // bedazzled pepper spray // taser (I recommend a smaller sized one.. protect yourself ladies!)

Okay so first off let me address the weapon in my purse… Yes, I carry a taser when I go out at night or if I go to the library late at night and I know that I’m going to have to walk majority of the way home alone. I carry one for safety; over Sibs Weekend alone, there were three documented rapes and I don’t want to be a part of that statistic. That’s scary and I would rather be safe than sorry! I also have pepper spray too, but that’s always on my keys. Okay scary part out of the way, so 8 times out of 10 I carry my Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC when I go out. It’s been pretty trusty and I definitely plan on investing in another color. I do have to say it has some roughed up spots in some areas, but I do carry it a lot. It’s super versatile and the blue color is so light its basically a neutral.

I always have my keys and my baby wallet! If I’m carrying a clutch or smaller bag, I’ll switch to a cardholder but usually it’s the baby wallet (FYI I’ve just decided to refer to it as the baby wallet from now on haha). I’m not going to lie that little Bean Boot is really cute but it can definitely be annoying shoving your keys in your bag if you’re in a hurry! Aside form these essentials, I carry hand sanitizer because these bars do not keep up with their soap supply! I pretty much have chapstick and hand sanitizer in every bag though. Actually come to thank of it, I don’t even think I emptied out the front pocket of this bag (oops). It usually just has my lip product of the moment, chapstick, lady products, and mints, nothing too special. I don’t always carry a snack but I hate spending money here, I die a little every time I have to buy food when I’m out, so I try to throw in a little snack just in case I get hungry! A HUGE must have is a portable charger and/ or plug. I have probably run into a good 10 people with dead phones this school year, lost and separated from their friends.. Thats tragic and I never want to be in that position.

That’s pretty much everything I carry on a typical night out! Also make sure you share your location with your friends just in case you guys ever get separated (especially if you have friends that wonder off haha!) Thanks for reading!!

Old Navy jacket (wearing kids xxl, similar) // similar white lace top // Hollister Jeans // Kate Spade Small Harmony Crossbody // similar leopard flats // Tiffany Bracelet // Kate Spade Gramercy Watch

I love a pop of color, especially in the dull cold weather months. This bag is probably more suited for spring and summer, but who cares! I love mixing textures and prints, like this white tank I got at Marshall’s a few seasons back and this camo jacket. Honestly, this jacket is one of my favorites. It’s actually a kid’s jacket, I’m wearing an XXL and it fits pretty well, the arms are a tad short (thanks to my long arm genes), but I just roll the sleeves and call it a day. Aside from the lace and camo, I also have my favorite leopard flats. I just love wearing these flats with this jacket, it’s fun and funky!

I hope you all are having a good start to your week! Thanks for stopping by!
