23 Things You Might Not Know About Me

Thank goodness it’s the weekend! Today is my 23rd Birthday, so we are having lots of fun dinner celebrations this weekend! In honor of turning 23, I’m sharing 23 things you might not know about me!

1. I went on my first airplane flight when I was only 2 weeks old.

2. If I had to eat one thing only forever, it would definitely be BLTs! They are my favorite.

3. I love love love lemonade. Chick-Fil-A and Wendy’s have some of my favorites.

4. I love all of the sad and emotional music. It always makes me cry, but I love it!

5. I can’t sing for the life of me. I can’t carry a tune or rhythm at all ๐Ÿ™ˆ

6. I’m definitely a midwest girl at heart! Just love the people so much.

7. I’m the youngest of three, and we are all super close.

8. My hair is stick straight and hardly ever holds a curl well.

9. I love wearing neutrals because they are so easy to mix and match!

10. 90% of my closet is either stripes or peplum. I’m addicted to both.

11. I’m also addicted to skinny pop. I could eat a while bag in a day! My family can confirm this one haha.

12. I’m super excited to be starting my career as an SLP in just a few months!

13. I played soccer when I was little. I swear I was better in 5th grade than I am now!

14. I love to travel and have always wanted to go to Australia or the Maldives.

15. My grandmother taught us all how to needlepoint and now it’s something we all love to do together.

16. I’ve never colored or highlighted my hair. I definitely will in the future though!

17. My favorite flavor of ice cream is mocha chocolate chip from Graeter’s.

18. My favorite cocktails are either sangria or margaritas. They are both so good.

19. My favorite vacations are lounging by the beach and exploring new towns.

20. I love to read, but hardly have any time. I start books and then never finish them.

21. I love watching reality TV including the Bachelor, Survivor, and Million Dollar Listing.

22. I don’t like scary movies at all. I just bury my head in my sweater.

23. I love dogs and definitely want to get one when I am able to have one ๐Ÿ™‚

This sweater is from Joie a few years back. I found a similar one from Madewell here and here. Hope you all have a great weekend!

P.S. This was the best we could get outside. It was so windy and the balloons did not want to cooperate haha!

Needlepoint Mules

Hope you are all having a great Tuesday! I wanted to share these adorable needlepoint loafers with you. They are by Stubbs and Wootton. I love how fun each pair is. Each pattern goes with so many different things and really adds some pops of color to an outfit. They are perfect for wearing with your favorite basics and neutrals.

This pair are mules, but their loafers are also a great option. From the front they actually look the same. I would say the loafers are a great option if you’re running around all day and need something that stays on a little bit easier.

This sweater is a similar one to mine from J Crew. They are the perfect basic to throw on with pants, a cute belt, and fun coats or shoes.

This jacket that I’ve been wearing all the time this season is SAM. and can be found at Bloomingdales. There is a similar less expensive coat here at Nordstrom as well ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great week everyone!

Champagne Nightshirt

Thank goodness it’s Friday y’all! I hope you all had a good week and are ready for the weekend. This champagne nightshirt would be perfect for a bachelorette party or celebrating an event with your girls! It’s so comfy, and I love how loose fitting it is. This makes it perfect for lounging and staying in your pjs all day. It’s available in S/M and L/XL at Classic Prep Monograms!

Do + Be Suede Shirt

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you all are having a good week getting back to school and jobs after the holidays! My last semester is now in full swing which is crazy. So excited to see what’s in store these next few months and over the summer. I wanted to share this outfit with you all today.

I love this suede shirt by Do + Be for the winter time. The sleeves are so cute and make it perfect for a winter party or dressing an outfit up a bit. This one is available at Tuckernuck here and a similar one is available at Amazon here.

I’m wearing these black jeans from Frame that I’ve been loving all fall and winter. You can find similar black booties to these ones here and here.

Hope you all have a great week!

Varley Manning Sweatshirt and Stella McCartney Adidas Sneakers

Thank goodness it’s Friday!! Anyone else ready for the weekend? I’m headed back to Boston on Sunday for my last semester of school! It feels like just yesterday I was moving in as a freshman and now five years have flown by.

I wanted to share a few things for this athletic wear look today on the blog.

These Stella McCartney Adidas sneaks are so cute and very comfortable. I love that they are so different than all of my other sneakers. You can find them here, here, or here. They are on sale for $132 at both Shopbop and Zappos!

This sweatshirt from Varley is so so comfy and kept me warm on our walk even though it was a little windy. I love the zipper detail too. It’s available in white, black, and blush here at Nordstrom. There is also a similar one with a cowl neck here at Varley. I think I might have to grab a few more in different colors for the chillier days in fall and spring for sure!

These leggings are a few years old from Lulu Lemon. They are actually maroon which is hard to tell in the pictures. I love the color so much and they go with everything which is always a plus! They have similar pairs here, here, and here.

These sunglasses are Tom Ford and can be found here at Nordstrom.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!! I hope you all had a great time ringing in 2019. I am so excited for what this new year has in store for me. There are so many exciting things to look forward to!

I’m sharing this outfit for NYE today. My sister, some friends, and I all went to the Madison Event Center for their NYE party, and it was really fun.

I wore this sequin top from J Crew a few years back and found a similar one here at Zara. This exact shirt is available a few places on eBay and Poshmark as well. I also love this sequin top from J Crew. The rose gold color is so pretty!

This leather skirt is also a few years old from J Crew. I found a similar one here at ASOS. I love the pleated detailing and the higher waist.

These boots are a similar pair for under $100 that I linked in my Christmas Eve Outfit post as well. I love the wedge on this pair!

Here’s to a great year in 2019! Hope you all have a great week!

Christmas Eve Outfit

Thank goodness it’s Friday! I hope you all had a lovely week and are ready for the weekend! We are still enjoying holiday mode over here, for sure. Today I’m sharing my Christmas Eve outfit. We always go to my mom’s parents house for Christmas Eve dinner and some presents, and it’s one of my favorite Christmas traditions.

The earrings I wore that you may have caught in my insta stories are maybe 10 years old (I always love sharing with my mom haha)! I’m linking a similar pair that I found here!

These boots were a Christmas present a few years back, but there are some similar pairs here and here. There is also a similar wedge pair for under $100 here!

This dress is also a few years old, so I found a similar leather shift dress also under $100 at Macy’s!

Can’t believe 2018 is almost over, but I’m excited for what’s to come 2019! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Christmas Pajamas

Hey y’all! Hope you had a fabulous Christmas with friends and family. We had such a nice day and went to see Mary Poppins in the theaters. It was so so cute and Emily Blunt was fantastic!!! On another note, I wanted to share our matching Christmas pajamas on the blog today! My mom gave us each a pair of Imperial Dragon Monogrammed Cotton Sateen Pajamas to wear on Christmas morning. They are so comfy and mine are a size small. They definitely fit loosely which I love! I may or may not be wearing them watching Christmas movies right now haha! They are perfect for lounging at home for sure.

Madewell Plaid Top and Jeans

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend! We had a blast celebrating my sister and grandpa’s 100th birthday (they turned 24 and 76 on the same day!) and went to see Straight No Chaser as well. It was such a good show y’all, would highly recommend for the whole family! I’m sharing the outfit I wore tonight on the blog.

I wore these black jeans by Frame in a size 25 for reference! I love how they fit and look nice with any outfit!

These booties are some of my faves and help to dress up any outfit! Here is another similar option that is leather rather than suede.

My top is a style from Madewell from last year, but this one is very similar and in stock in all sizes!

Also, in case you missed it, I chopped my hair this week! Check in out in my Instagram highlight “My Favorites.” So long, long hair!
