Summer Layers



Here's a quick post of my outfit! I am incredibly excited for fall (layers, vests, denim, flannel... sounds like heaven right?) So in all my excitement to start layering I picked out some layers that are more appropriate for summer! Light pink gingham and this mint sweater look darling together. I also wore some dark emerald colored chinos! Accessories stayed simple with with Kate Spade spade studs, a fossil watch, monogram necklace, and a Kate Spade clutch. Thanks so much for reading! Until next time...Brianna

Dorm Room Bargains


Today my room mate, Sydney,  and I went shopping for our dorm room! I am beyond excited to move-in, but crazy nervous as well! We found some awesome deals at Target, Marshalls, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Ross. The comforter, throw pillows, and shower caddy are from Target. The trash can and Nike shoes are from Ross. PS- the trashcan was $7 and the shoes were $20!!! Run to your nearest Ross!! I had wanted some new tennis shoes that weren't too athletic looking and I think these will be perfect this fall/winter with leggings and a vest when I want to be comfortable. These sneakers remind me a lot of these Nike for J. Crew sneakers. The sheet set is Cynthia Rowley from Marshalls and these were only $12. I also got the adorable yellow box from Marshalls which will be perfect for jewelry. Lastly, I got the clear acrylic drawers (similar here) from Bed Bath & Beyond. I plan on using these for my makeup. I love how easily I will be able to see everything and it even fits my naked palettes! Hopefully you guys are able to find some bargains like I did! Good luck! Until next time... Brianna

Scalloped Dress + Field Jacket.

Two of the most coveted J. Crew pieces recently. Scalloped dress + field jacket. Perfect combination in my opinion! I love how versatile these two pieces are (totally worth the money and the scalloped dress is now on sale!!!) Shelly, from thesouthershell, and I did a collaboration with our scalloped dresses since this dress is so very loved in the Instagram and blogging community. Thanks again Shelly for doing this collaboration with me! Be sure to check out her blog here & her instagram here!

Everything about this dress is to die for. First of all, the colors we have are my favorite. Coral and citron yellow are perfect for summer! I love how the citron yellow really can look good on anyone! Whoever said blondes can't wear yellow obviously hadn't seen this color ;). The fit is universally flattering as well making it even more perfect! Another thing I love about this dress is the ability to dress it up or down! Believe it or not I actually wore this dress to prom this year and I LOVED it!! I love this dress so much I even included it in my Summer Must Haves blog post earlier (read here).
 Thanks for reading! 
Until next time.... Brianna

Vineyard Vines Outfit collab with @style_by_salli!






I just recently got my first ever Vineyard Vines shirt and I am in love with it! It is seriously so soft and I think it will be great in college when I don't really feel like getting ready, but still want to look cute!
                      Salli (her instagramblog) and I decided to a collaboration with a casual vineyard vines outfit! This was the perfect time to do this considering right now Vineyard Vines is having a sale and all their clearance is marked down an extra 50% off!!! (OMG!!!) I am definitely going to be ordering a few things. Anyway, here are a few pictures of our outfits! I decided to pair my vv tee with bright five inch Chinos from J. Crew Factory! I love this length. I can even roll them up once or twice for a different look. Also, with this casual look I put a monogram necklace, my favorite watch, and these adorable Kate Spade studs just to make it seem a little more put together!
                     Salli wore a long sleeve vv tee with denim shorts paired with her adorable vineyard vines tote! I seriously love her instagram and blog so be sure to check them both out!! Thanks so much for taking the time to read!
Xoxo,
Brianna

A Few Summer Must Haves


Just wanted to share a few things I can't get enough of this summer! These are just a few of my summer must haves.
1) A bright bag! I have this bag in blue and it goes with so much more than i would have expected! 
2) White shorts! These J. Crew Factory ones are so comfortable and just the right length! 
3) Chambray! This is an all year long must have. Am i right? 
4) A foundation that won't slide off. I have very oily skin. I previously used Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, but it wasn't very good at staying all day. This Clinique stay matte foundation really does stay matte and i love it! Especially for the super humid days we have here in Missouri. 
5) Lots of hats! I work at a golf course and when i have to get there at 5:30 am a hat is my savior! I also always throw one on to go to the pool or even just to add something to an outfit! 
6) A fresh perfume. Daisy eau so fresh is my favorite for summer because it is so light and fresh. 
7) Cute tees. My favorites this summer are Lauren James, Fraternity Collection, and I recently just discovered Charlie Southern which has adorable tanks! 
8) A "dress it up or down" dress. A dress that you can wear on date night or throw on to run some errands. I think the scalloped dress from J. Crew is a perfect example! 
Thanks for reading!

Gingham + Denim











Ahhhh! My first ever blog post! I am so so so excited that I finally made one (it took wayyyyy too long!!) I don't have a fancy camera so I will just be using my iPhone. I also am very challenged when it comes to blog stuff so just hang in there until I get better! Anywayyyy, today I am wearing the J. Crew Factory "Perfect Shirt" (it really is perfect by the way) with J. Crew Factory white denim shorts that I loveeee! These are four inch inseam which for me is perfect! Abby and I have been trying to do a collab for a while and I am so glad we finally did this "Navy and Pink" collab! We didn't try and match, but our outfits ended up going together very well! Be sure to check out her blog post HERE. I hope you guys enjoy this blog and I am excited to get it going! Thanks for reading.
Xoxo,
