I finally hopped onto the distressed denim train! I mean, it only took about all summer.... Next on my list boyfriend jeans. Have any you swear by? I would absolutely l-o-v-e to know! 

Funny story... the minute my dad saw me in distressed jeans (or in this case jeggings) he freaked out letting me know that when he has holes in his pants they are in the garbage the next day. Same goes with the lipstick. Although, I will say I don't wear colors like this all the time, so it was still a change for him to see me with color on my lip. 

Thanks for stoppin' by, lovelies!

Y'all. It. Is. Cold. It's really in the 60's but I am not used to that in September! I kinda miss the hot weather. Don't get me wrong, I am all about sweaters, scarves, and a PSL, but this year I just wish that time would hold off just a week or two more. Sunday morning it was actually cold, so I paired a mint sweater with some gold accents and a bright colored vest. I still wanted to wear summer colors but I also didn't want my butt to freeze. If you live in New England or anywhere the weather is more cold than hot out of the year please let me know your tips on layers or how you stay warm! 

Thanks loves, and I hope you have a great Friday eve! Mine will be filled with lots of family time, as it's my grandparents last day on there visit, and cupcakes, duh!

Hanging onto Summer Colors....









Top- Forever 21 [similar]
Skirt- LuLaRoe, no longer available [similar; love this!]
Pumps- DSW
Sunnies- Nordstrom
Earrings- Kendra Scott
Necklaces- Kendra Scott, color not available [love this]; A gift
Bracelet- Susie Raine


 The excitement I have for today's post is unreal! About a month ago LuLaRoe contacted me about their brand, and I was thrilled to pick out some of their goodies. I was unsure about how everything would look and fit since it was a new brand, but when the package came in, I was over the moon! They were beyond my expectation! LuLaRoe has great staples that you can literally style any way you want, and they can fit just about any size. You might want to order a size or two smaller than what you would normally buy just because the clothes are made to fit a little loose for comfort. The perfect way to describe LuLaRoe is in their own words,"LuLaRoe exists to give women comfortable, simple, stylish clothing." I could not be happier with their products, and the customer service is the absolute sweetest! I am already jumping out of my seat ready to style the other pieces I received! 

A huge thank you to LuLaRoe and a thank you to you for reading!

Wednesday Wishlist

Untitled #9

Camel SweaterHerringbone VestBurgundy SkirtFaux-Leather SkirtDestroyed DenimLeather BootiesCheetah SlippersBurgundy EarringsTory Burch Cross-BodyKate Spade AgendaMAC Lip Pencil in 'Soar'MAC Lipstick in 'Fleshpot'Dior Lip Maximizer Laura Mercier Foundation


I know what y'all are thinking... those slippers are wild!! Why yes, they are most definitely wild and I need them in my life. I NEED them. So bad. Last year, when we first visited Cape Cod in the winter, my feet had become icicles. Therefore, those $125 would be put to good use! And if that isn't enough they are cheetah print, fuzzy, have a bow on them, and are Kate Spade. It's a "duh" moment for me. 

Thank you for listening to my rant! Now moving on. I am big into the color burgundy this fall, and it doesn't help that I am a big Carolina Gamecock fan. I love bold colors on lips but I can never really pull them off, or I just don't feel like going into the grocery store with bright red lips. So when I saw this look I knew I had to try it out for the days I don't feel like putting on much color! Also, I have heard amazing things about the Laura Mercier Foundation, and I am still on the hunt for that perfect foundation for my skin. If you have any suggestions please let me know! Distressed jeans are HUGE this season; again still looking for that perfect match for me. I just can't justify $200 for a pair of jeans quite yet. Just a little secret between you and me, that sweater is only $16!! And yep, those are yet another pair of booties. With a bow on them. And they are Kate Spade. Funny how I can't justify $200 jeans but I sure can justify a $350 pair of booties. 

I'm thinking about doing a "Wednesday Wishlist" every week. Let me know your feed back!

Sorry this was uber long!! Thanks for reading!

The Usual...









Jacket- Forever 21 [similar]
Shorts- Nike
Shoes- Nike [similar]
Sunnies- Forever 21 [similar]
Earrings- Old, similar
Necklace- Kendra Scott [love this!!]


To be completely honest with y'all, I haven't hit the gym in months. But I do wear active wear a lot. I have a good collection of it from all of my dance years, and I was so used to wearing it 5-6 days a week. So I guess it just feels natural to wear a lot of active wear although  I am slowly starting to wear more "normal clothes" everyday. We are planning on joining a gym soon, and I could not be happier. Haha! I can feel how weak I have become, and it drives me crazy having to get people to open bottles for me. 

I hope you all had an amazing Labor Day weekend! I start my last first day of high school today (say what?!), and I am one of those weird people that is actually not dreading it as much as most kids do. Anyway, thanks for reading!
