Sunflower Season

If you’re like me then your Instagram feed has been full of happy sunflower photos lately. I’m not exactly sure why sunflowers have been so popular this year, but fields seem to pop up everywhere! I’m not hating at all, these flowers are so bright and they can make anyone feel instantly happier.

Back to School Season...

It’s that time of year again… Back to school season. It’s so weird being in the middle of back to school season and not going back to school myself. This will be the first time in 17 years (WUT) I’m not heading to Wal-Mart scouting out the best notebooks for class or mentally preparing myself for the endless hours of staring into a textbook. Such a weird thing.

SURPRISE! I'm in another blue floral dress. But, are we really surprised? Probably not.

I mean, I don't have a blue embroidered floral dress in my collection so it totally justifies me adding this beaut to my closet, am I right?

XOXO, Gossip Girl

Spotted: A on the streets of Charlotte walking around in a chic bow tie tweed dress. Is that Mui Mui? Chloe? St. John? Word on the street is that it's not even designer and she only paid $24 for it. That may work down south, but definitely not here in the streets of Manhattan.

Let's talk about personal style...

Let's take a second and chat about personal style now, shall we? I feel like there's so much pressure to fit into a certain category of style and call that your own personal style whether it be "edgy," "preppy," "girly," "sporty," and so on.
