My New Favorite Accessory

Hey yall! JORD Watches reached out to me to receive and review one of their watches. These are wooden watches and I’d never had one before so I was eager to try it out. Normally, I’m not a huge watch person because I like having bare wrists (with an exception of a hair tie) but this watch is so lightweight and I love how it looks. Sometimes I’m rushing out the door or lazy and I want my look a little more put together so I can throw on this watch easily.

The watch I received was the FRANKIE 35 Zebrawood and Navy. I liked how the watch face was navy – I thought brought a lot of character to the watch.

You can get your watch custom-sized which is really handy because ideally, you don’t have to get links taken out. I have small wrists so that can be a bit of a pain. The watch came in a beautiful wooden box that presented the watch beautifully.

The watch is unique and it looks so sleek and classic so you can wear it with pretty much anything.

I would recommend this to anyone so JORD and I are teaming up to offer an awesome giveaway. One person will receive $100 off toward their JORD watch purchase but everyone else who enters will automatically receive $25 off.

Strength in Colors

Today I’m super excited to share an awesome partnership with Strength in Colors. Strength in Colors is a clothing company, started by my friend Annie. This company gives back to certain charities and 10 percent of the purchase goes to the charity of your choice. There are three causes so far – breast cancer, childhood cancer and law enforcement. When Annie reached out to me, I was so thrilled! I love companies that help the community.

I was so excited to see that one of Annie’s charities is breast cancer. In college, I was a Zeta Tau Alpha and our philanthropy is breast cancer awareness and education. Also, I LOVE this logo! It makes me feel strong (kinda like the name).

I love their clothing because it’s so comfortable and versatile. You can definitely dress it up or down however you’d like. They both would look cute with some light wash jeans and some Converse.

A huge thank you to Annie/Strength in Colors for partnering with me on this collaboration. All of my opinions are my own.

Summer Essentials

Summer is here and it’s important to take care of yourself throughout the sunshine, relaxation, and fun. Today I’m sharing with y’all my summer essentials. Hover over the images to see how much they are!

cactus patch hat| eat, beach, shop hat | light blue pom-pom floppy hat

  1. Hat
    -I’m not normally a hat person but I recently purchased a floppy hat and it allows me to better protect my face even though sometimes I get quite hot anyway.

IMG-sunglasses2. Sunglasses
-I don’t know if any of you have this problem but since I have such big cheeks/high cheekbones, it’s important for me to find sunglasses with a nose pad or if I smile, my sunglasses will rise higher and it looks off.

insulated tumbler | rose gold sequin tumbler | sip by swell insulated bottle
3. Water Bottle

-If you’re going to be out in the heat, it’s a great idea to carry around a water bottle to keep yourself hydrated. There are so many out there but I tend to go for the ones that keep my water cooler for longer since I love cold water.

4. Sunscreen
-I know this is a given but it’s incredibly important to take care of your skin. I’ll admit that I’m terrible about applying it but when I know I’ll be out for long periods of time, I make sure to put it on. I use one that my dermatologist recommends but I’m guilty of not using it all the time because it makes me feel sticky sometimes.


wedge sandals | tory burch flip flops | lace up pom-pom sandals | lace up brown sandals
5. Comfortable sandals
-Personally, I don’t like wearing closed toed shoes in the summer unless I really have to so it’s important that I have cute and comfy sandals. I used to wear Jandals for pretty much everything but personally, I don’t feel like I can pull it off like some people can.

Those are my summer essentials! What are yours?

Hey yall! I wanted to apologize for my lack of posting last Wednesday. I had a couple of interviews last week and I’ve been trying to figure out my next steps in regards to my blog. That could mean new posts… We’ll see!

Today I’m sharing this top I got from Ross. It was only twelve dollars. I like this top because it’s somewhat loose – necessary in the summer heat and reminds me of the beach. Also, how cute is this pup? His name is Vicious and he attacked me with love.

I hope you all are having a great week! Do yall have any fun plans this weekend? I’m preparing for my trip to Houston!

Hello friends! How in the world is it almost June?!

Today on the blog I’m sharing this cute off-the-shoulder top I got from Ross. Off-the-shoulder tops have been in style lately so I tried to try it for myself. I was a bit skeptical before I tried it on but I ended up really liking it! I love that it’s light and flowy enough to wear in the summer.

Have yall been loving the off-the-shoulder trend lately?
I hope you are having a great week!

Hey babes! Today I’m sharing with yall my favorite dress. It was so incredibly windy the day we shot. I actually shared about it in a previous post: here. I bought it on a whim at Forever 21 right before check-out and it’s been my favorite purchase ever since. It was only ten dollars! It’s super soft and flowy. I typically pair it with this tan cardigan because it’s so comfortable. I’ve worn it to a lot – a wedding, work, sorority recruitment and school.

Hope yall are having a great week!
