A Scarf Made for Spring

     Small scarves have been one of my absolute favorite trends over the past several months.  After I saw one of my YoungLife leaders wear one in her hair, I became obsessed and quickly began purchasing them for myself (a lot of my favorites are from Madewell!).  I’ve loved styling these little scarves in my hair, around my neck, on my bags, and on my wrists, and I always keep an eye out for any potential additions to my fast-growing collection.  When I heard that Jadelynn Brooke’s accessory line 3 Happy Hooligans was beginning to carry scarves, I was ecstatic.  As most of you know, I’ve been an ambassador for Jadelynn Brooke for about three years now, and I couldn’t have been more excited to see how adorable these scarves would be given what I already knew about the beauty and quality of Jadelynn Brooke’s other products.  Jadelynn Brooke has truly outdone themselves with these scarves, and today I’m styling my scarf (in the print “Coral Floral”) for y’all!  Enjoy!

     When it comes to matching an accessory as bright and fun as this Jadelynn Brooke scarf, you have to keep it simple.  For my shirt, I opted for a simple white structured Gap tee with a delicate quilted pattern, which I recently picked up at my local thrift store.  I thought my flare jeans would contribute to the 70s vibe that the scarf set for the outfit and I chose my gold Jack Rogers sandals to match.  I kept my accessories (besides the scarf) to a minimum, with silver hoops, a couple simple bracelets and rings, and my Freestyle Shark watch.  One word of advice when styling this scarf – I’ve noticed this scarf is a little larger than the scarves I’ve acquired from Madewell, so I’d advise you to wrap the scarf around your neck twice before actually tieing it in order to make things a little easier.

Thanks for reading!  Seriously, go do yourself a favor and go look at these scarves!  Yoou won’t regret it.

Riverwalk Runway

     Long time no outfit post!  I’m so sorry for my frequent hiatuses this school year, I don’t really have a real excuse except that senior year is weird.  Between my four AP classes, lacrosse season, YoungLife things, work, and frequent senior events, my free time is sparse and I’ve spent most of it doing stress-relieving things like hanging out with friends, watching Netflix, reading, and making friendship bracelets (sorry, blogging is a little stressful).  Now that we’ve gotten that little moment of honesty out of the way, I’m hoping (fingers crossed) that I’ll be back to blogging for good.  Today I’m sharing an outfit from my recent spring break trip to Texas.  Enjoy!

     I purchased this top from Madewell on super sale back in January and I was so excited to finally be somewhere warm enough to wear it!  I love the pretty pinks, reds, and corals in the hemline embroidery and I just think it’s so perfect for spring.  I paired the fun white shirt with a basic pair of dark wash Old Navy skinny jeans and gold Jack Rogers sandals.  I kept my accessories somewhat simple (excluding my excessive friendship bracelets) with some white Kendra Scott earrings and the matching necklace.

A Good Kind of Black and Blue

     Typically the phrase “black and blue” refers to bruises or perhaps emotional scarring, but how often have you thought of it as a color combination?  Today’s ensemble combines a pretty pale blue top with some edgier black ripped jeans for a cool, chic look. Enjoy!

     If you know me personally you know I’m an online shopping addict (that’s why I’m giving it up for Lent!  More on that here).  I’m on far too many brands’ email lists and I simply can’t resist a good sale.  Lucky for me, when I purchased this adorable light blue faux wrap top from J.Crew, it was marked down to under $20, so the damage wasn’t too bad.  For this look, I paired the delicate blue top with a pair of black raw hem ripped jeans from Old Navy.  I opted for some simple black Vans to match that somewhat “edgy” feel for lack of better words.  To bring a little extra dose of chic, I wore one of my current favorite pairs of statement earrings (from Etsy!) which resemble some glitzy angel wings along with my simple asymmetrical initial necklace from Anthropologie.  I’ll let you in on a little secret – those earrings look pretty expensive if you ask me, but they’re only $25!

Very Velvet

     It’s been way too long.  Life is hectic and while trying to soak up every moment of senior year I appear to have left my blog behind for a little bit.  I’m not going to promise this is the start of consistent posting because it might not be, but please believe me when I say I’m not giving up this platform anytime soon!  I love you all so very much and I miss this creative space, it’s just hard to make time right now.  That said, let’s get into what I can guarantee – today’s blog post!

     Winter outfits can get pretty drab, with the dark colors and all.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a grey chunky sweater just as much as the next girl, but at some point enough is enough.  One of my favorite ways to make my winter wardrobe a little more fun is to add some fun color!  Today’s look includes a rich gold velvet tank and a bright pair of emerald green earrings.  Enjoy!

     Ever since I decided on Baylor my eyes have gravitated towards all things green and gold (oops), so when I saw this J.Crew tank in the sale section, I knew I needed it.  To lighten up the outfit and stay warm, I paired the tank with a white cardigan I recently purchased at my local Marshalls.  The bold top called for a pair of simple dark wash Old Navy skinny jeans, which I cuffed at the ankle to wear with my TOMS booties.  I accessorized with a fun pair of green tassel earrings from Altar’d State (again with the green and gold color combination…see what I mean?) that tied into the colors on the booties as well as my go-to Kendra Scott necklace and my MantraBand.

Stripes & Sneakers

      Long time no see!  I don’t want to make excuses for my absence because it’s really just due to the fact that I’ve been prioritizing other things over my blog lately.  I haven’t felt super motivated to shoot outfits in the past few weeks, but as I’ve used that time to read devotionals and dig deeper into Scripture, I’ve been inspired to pursue this blog with Christ at the center.  Be on the lookout for more faith-related posts soon!  I’ve missed blogging so very much this past month or so and I’m so excited to be sharing my first outfit post in what feels like forever today.  Enjoy!

     I purchased this Urban Outfitters top $10 off (it’s on sale again, by the way!) a few days after Christmas and I’m obsessed with it.  I have to admit, these oh so popular thermal button-downs live up to the hype.  This thing is so soft and so cute!  My favorite way to style this striped thermal is currently with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and my platform Converse sneakers.  I received these sneakers for Christmas and I just think they’re the perfect go-to shoe – the taupe color goes with everything and they can easily be dressed up or down!  I accessorized with a pair of turquoise stacked tassel earrings from Bauble Bar, my Kendra Scott Elisa pendant and James Avery cross necklaces layered, and my everyday bracelets and rings.  This look is perfect to wear to school or to a casual hangout with friends!

Yellow Surplice Sweater

     One random fun fact about my fall wardrobe is that I only have a few long sleeve tops, but I have a ton of sweaters.  For some reason, and that reason is not just cool weather, I gravitate towards sweaters.  The structure of the look I’m sharing today is one that you’re likely to find me wearing any given day between October and February.  Today’s particular variant of my go-to sweater-jean-and-bootie combo includes one of my new favorite sweaters.  Enjoy!

     I won’t lie, I’ve been extra drawn to yellow/gold and green ever since I got into Baylor.  I found this yellow surplice sweater at my local Marshalls and between the pretty fall color and soft material, I knew I had to buy it!  Because the sweater is a surplice style, I’m always sure to wear a tank underneath.  For this look, I paired the sweater with a pair of dark wash jeans, which I cuffed above a pair of TOMS booties.  I love these booties because they bring so many bright, fun colors to a look, including the purple that I also incorporated through my stacked purple tassel earrings.  As for the rest of my jewelry, I kept it simple with my plain gold rings and Kendra Scott Elisa pendent necklace in white pearl.
