Look for Less: July 2014


 By now you've probably all seen the Free People trapeze dress that has made its way into a lot of summer wardrobes in the past few summers, but if you haven't then you're not missing out because it has been copied by countless companies to get you the look for cheaper!

The top two are pictures of the original "Free People Trapeze Dress" that retails at $90 and below is the version from Charming Charlies for $30!

So a year has past since I've last posted on here. But I figured it was time for an update! 
I've loved sophomore year so far, and I can't believe it's almost over. I only have two more weeks until summer starts...

Duke went to two bowl games in a row say whaaaat

I Still Exist

Safe to say, my title is true. I have a little catching up to do. I took a break for...almost a year-woops. But I miss having a blog and having a venue for the constant shopping online addiction I can't kick. So here's a pledge to myself to write on this more. If nothing else, it's fun to look back on when I grow up.

Parents weekend! Mom on the left in her + sista sista on the right
Weirdest night at Clemson; cheers to that 
Best Tigers in the Nation!!!
Hallmate biddies
Cheers to the best roomie on campus 
Best night of my life. On stage with Jake Owen all night. Trust me, this will have its own blog post.

Safe to say, orange has been a consistent theme here at Clemson, and I've loved almost every minute of being here. There DEFINITELY a reason why Clemson is names one of the top three

Happiest Campuses each year.

Seriously. The amount of pride people have at this school is unlike anything I'd imagined. It's incredible to be at a place where everyone loves it except about two people that are USC fans but decided to come to the better school.....jusssayin. Haha, kidding! Sort of..

Anyway, this blog may feel a bit different now that I'm a cOlLegE gerl, but I think I like myself even better now so....
Cheers to me!!!!!

Peace & Blessings,

This semester is flying by (though not quite fast enough); I can't believe I haven't posted since February! Last time I posted, I was deciding where to go to college, and I am so glad I've finally made my decision! A few days after my post, I got my acceptance letter from Clemson. I can't remember a time I'd ever been so happy/giddy as when I saw the big envelope! Ultimately, it came down to Furman and Clemson and if you can't tell by what I've already been saying, I chose...

Clemson!!!!!! Go Tigers!

Last week, I visited both schools for the third time. First, I visited in 2010 where I decided the two schools were in my top five. Then I visited this past fall before I applied, and my most recent visit was for the Clemson open house and Furman accepted students day. I honestly was SOOO impressed by Furman, and I know I would have loved it there too, but Clemson just got me so much more excited! And I am hoping to transfer into Nursing, a major not available at Furman. I already have a great roommate & have sent in my deposit, etc! Yay! All that's left is graduation.
Any graduation dress suggestions?

Anyone else watch Revenge tonight/watch the show Awake? Obsessed. Oooobsessed. 

Excited to go to Charleston this weekend for my grandparent's 50th! I'll be sure to take pictures!

Um, Taylor? Is that You?!

First, thank you so much for all your sweet comments on my last post! Keep the college advice coming because the decision process is going to be a looong journey for me and any help/guidance is appreciated more than you will ever know!
....Now onto the good stuff!

I am typically a big fan of the fact that Taylor Swift likes to play it safe on most occasions when it comes to fashion. That, however,  is not to say that I don't love a surprise risk every now and then and I have got to say I am LOVING her whole look! Go, Taylor!

And also nominated (by me, of course) as most perfect person in the world iiiissss: Carrie Underwood
Love love love!
Had to include this-would you LOOK at that skin! And eyes, hair, brows we get it're perfect...
I intentionally neglected to include about a zillion other celebrities because, well, I care about no one else. Whoops, sorry Adele  Hollywood.

College + Birthdays + Reflection

(the shirt from my last post)

These past two weeks have been pretty crazy so though I'll do my best to update you in one post, I'm not sure that it'd be entirely possible! 
         I'll start about a week and a half ago. 

I had a temper tantrum because I hadn't purchased any new clothes in quite a while, and everyone knows that makes a girl like myself a little cranky so insert a few new pretties into the closet, and I was back to my normal self..

January 28 we went to dinner for my Dad's *gasp* 51st Birthday! Wooowee you're gettin' old big guy. Still no gray hair though, I'm sure my sister will fix in no time that now that she's in high school. We went to the Angus Barn in Raleigh-ish, his favorite!

On a completely different note, we received some horrible news on the way home. The following days were some of the worst and weirdest, yet most appreciative ones I've ever had. A 9th grade boy in my sister's class of about 30 students was tragically killed. I learned what an TRULY INCREDIBLE community my sister's school is through the response to his passing and how much love is in this town. I am so blessed to have such a great, healthy family and have God to thank for everything in my life; I don't ever want to forget that!! PLEASE keep his family in your prayers, I can't think of a more wonderful family and I know it's going to take a long time for them to heal. 

That led to a few days of hugging, Bible reading and just reflection on my life. It was nice to have those few days of family time to get to truly appreciate what I have. I think this is a little deeper than I usually go so I hope I haven't scared any of you off but it's honest and I like to consider this blog a journal of sorts.

On Feb 1st, I recieved my first, drumroll please...
College Acceptance!!!! Woo!!! About time, right?

Then, two days later I received my second acceptance:

I am waiting to hear from Clemson but now that I've heard from Furman I feel like I'm in a win-win situation. If I get into Clemson (which I'm currently leaning towards), I'll have the option to go there, and if I don't get in then I'll have some clarity and probably go to Furman!
I should hear from Clemson this week, so expect an update soon!

Maybe sometime in the near future I will be able to answer the annoying question that I get every week: 

In all honestly I would LOVE to hear any advice you have on any of the schools I'm considering!
Others include: UNC, Wofford, NC State, South Carolina...

Thanks for reading, happy weekend!

Cut It Out

I feel like every clothing website I go to now has at least one piece of clothing with cut outs so in light of the trend, I decided to show you a few items that I'm loving!







What do you think about the cut out trend? Are you going to try it out or pass on it?
