Spring Sweater

Sweater ($20!!) | White Jeans | Espadrilles | Crossbody (this year's version) | 

Hello all! Long time, no blog post. With my ever busy schedule and the cold spring weather we had been having, I truthfully hadn't been too inspired to blog. The weather was beautiful this weekend and my parents were visiting so I was able to snap some pictures wearing this sweater that I have already worn too many times to count. Campus has been so beautiful lately with all the azaleas blooming and they provided the perfect background for this spring outfit.
I bought this sweater after seeing it on Sydney's blog and at $20 it was hard to pass up! It's so lightweight and the perfect color for spring, however, the color of the sweater is definitely a little more vibrant in person, rather than baby blue as shown in the product image on H&M's website. It's also a unique cut with the tapered sleeves (which I cuffed) and the neckline crossed between a boat neck and a mock turtleneck. I would recommend sizing down in this sweater because it runs pretty big. I get so many compliments every time I wear this sweater and it's definitely my current favorite piece!
 Another favorite of mine are these espadrilles, which have been my go-to for class because they are comfy and easy to wear, but still look so cute! They are a perfect dupe for the Chloe Lauren Espadrilles but are a steal at $49 compared to $495! I sized down one half size in these and they were a little snug the first few times I wore them, but they definitely stretched a little bit and fit perfect now! I know I will be wearing these nonstop this spring and summer because they are so comfy and look great with jeans, shorts, and dresses!

Friday Finds 3/30/2018

Happy Friday y'all! Spring has finally sprung in NC and this warm weather was me wanting to buy all the spring clothes. Especially after spending the past week in Florida, I'm ready for the nice weather to stay. I did a lot of browsing on Nordstrom this week and they added a ton of cute dresses under $100. Forever 21 is also doing an awesome deal and you can get two bathing suit pieces for $16!

Miscellaneous Finds:

  • I am seriously loving Spire & Co's rebrand! Sign up for their Energy Email here for some Monday motivation in your inbox.
  • America Runs on Dunkin'.... literally. Saucony and Dukin' just announced a sneaker collaboration and while I love Dunkin' I'm not sure I want my running shoes to have donuts and coffee beans on them! What do y'all think?
  • Interesting article about how having your phone in the room with you (even if it's turned off) still has a negative impact on your work.
Hope you had a great week!

Spring Break Recap

I'm back to reality after a fun and relaxing spring break with my friends in St. Augustine. Four of my best friends from Elon and I headed down to Florida for the week to celebrate my friend Emily's birthday! We were lucky enough to rent a house right on the beach so we spent a lot of time out on the porch just reading and hanging out. We did end up wearing sweatshirts and blankets out on the beach because it was so windy, but it sure beat the weather back in NC and was the perfect way to take it easy for the week. When we came back to Elon on Saturday it was snowing and we were ready to hop back in the car and head back to Florida!

We walked around Flagler's campus after mass on Sunday. It's such a pretty campus and so different from Elon. See my outfit details in this blog post!

We ventured over to downtown St. Augustine for one afternoon and did some shopping and snacking over there after lunch at an awesome food truck, Crave. We strolled around the touristy areas and then popped over to some side streets and checked out some cute boutiques. My favorite was Declaration Clothing which had the cutest clothing, accessories, and gifts! My favorite spot for coffee was The Kookaburra Coffee on the island - I loved the iced Mocha Nut!

Strawberry lemonade popsicle break at The Hyppo Ice Pop Bar. 

We celebrated Emily's birthday with dinner at the Ice Plant which is an old ice plant restored into a vintage restaurant and bar. Everything we ordered was so so good and they had so many fun mocktails. 

It was such a fun week filled with amazing memories! Now back to Elon for just a few weeks before summer hits!

Spring Gingham

Shirt (c/o, only $11!) | Denim Jacket | White Jeans | Crossbody (similar)

I've been drawn to everything gingham this season and am loving this fun peplum top that is a steal on SheIn. I have placed multiple orders with SheIn before and think it's a great way to try out trendy pieces without making the investment. I am (finally) on spring break and sported this look to mass and dinner in downtown St. Augustine. It was the perfect transitional spring outfit and I had to break out the white jeans before Memorial Day.
