When It's HOT..




When it's hot I feel like my outfits get very very low maintenance and simple. This outfit is very laid back, but I added some jewels to make it a little more fun. All my accessories are from Rocksbox (use code 'briannaxoxo1' for a free month!) This outfit is great because you can for sure take this into the night with some wedges and maybe minus the mini bun;) Unfortunately, this tank is too big on me so I will be giving it to my mama, but it's so soft and light so perfect for the heat! Thanks for reading this short little post!

Maxi Dress






I am really not a maxi girl. I feel like they are never really flattering on me, but this dress is one of those dresses that is just wow. Anytime I wear this I always get compliments. I feel like I have been wearing lots of neutrals lately so I wanted to wear some color! It is also great for this heat we have been dealing with lately because it is so lightweight and flowy so won't cling to you. 
As always thanks for reading!!!

Insta Recap / Update on Me

This summer has been one of the busiest summers yet (don't they all they seem this way?). I have never done an 'Instagram Roundup', so I thought I would try it and also give you guys a little update on my life!

This picture was taken in Destin, FL when we were on vacation. I have to say this drink would have been just as yummy in a normal cup, but let's be honest the pineapple made it insta worthy. This drink is simply pina colada mix with coconut rum blended together with ice. SO good. I also love pina coladas with cherry rum which is surprisingly so good.

I have Rocksbox to thank for my amazing jewelry box. Before Rocksbox I only had a few nice things I would wear and now I feel like I have a complete jewelry wardrobe! If you haven't already tried Rocksbox you seriously need to!! You can use my code 'briannaxoxo1' to sign up for a free month ($19 value). They will still ask for your credit card info, but if you decide you don't want to continue your subscription you can cancel anytime you want!!

A clean room is one of those things that I will always love. In college I couldn't do anything if my room wasn't clean and my bed wasn't made. I always worked from my bed and I couldn't stand working on an unmade bed. This year I will be living in an apartment with three friends and I am so excited. I want my room to feel more like a room and less like a dorm. I think I am pretty much going to take everything you see in this picture (minus the furniture) because I love my bedding and it will definitely make college feel more like home. I have been buying things throughout the summer to add as well. Like a fur rug to put on the end of my bed and the fur pillow pictured (both from Marshalls).

Love this dress from Asos. I had never really shopped there before and they have so many cute items! I haven't gotten to wear this beauty yet, but instagram/blog pictures will be up when I do!

I still can't believe that I move back in NEXT WEEKEND! Like where the heck did summer go?! It is so bittersweet. I am so excited to be back in Columbia, but sad to be leaving home too! My little brother is going to Mizzou this fall (right next to my school!) so I am excited to have him there with me. I already know we will have a ton of fun!

Blush & Ivory



I am loving this neckline lately and I feel like it is everywhere! My top is from Marshalls and my shorts are from Nordstrom and no longer available, but I linked some other cute options below (and all under $50!). I was unsure how I felt about this scalloped hem with my tassel hem shorts, but I ended up liking how soft and girly it looked together! Especially with my white Kendra's that you probably noticed I wear ALL the time. I have like 7 pairs of Kendra Scott earrings (I have a slight Kendra Scott addiction) and I wear these more than any other by far.

Hope you enjoyed this short outfit post!

Summer Neutrals


It was surprisingly "chilly" here today (okay, seventies but that's cold for a Missouri summer!) so it was the perfect day to wear this sleeveless sweater I recently found at Marshalls! I am sort of obsessed with it and I think it will be such a great transition piece that I will be able to wear with a jacket when it gets cooler! If you don't have a marshalls near you I linked some similar ones below!  I paired it with these new sandal booties from Emu Australia. They are SO comfortable and I've been wanting a pair like this forever. I have a feeling I will wear these all the time.

Anyway, hope your week has been great so far! We are almost to the weekend!

Simple Stripes

Okay, I would just like to point out that I have been waiting for this tank to come to June and Beyond Boutique since we picked it out at market in Vegas in February. It is very simple, but the fit and the fabric are perfect. All around it's the definition of the perfect summer tank and I guarantee I wear it at least threee times this week alone (lol, sorry about it). I couldn't find a link to it (maybe because it's new?) but you can always call the store to order or order through the house account app and finding us at June & Beyond!
It's that crazy time of summer when I am trying to do everything at one time. I haven't been posting much mostly because I have been so busy & haven't really gotten many new pieces lately. Probably because we are at that time where you don't really want to buy summer, but not ready to admit fall is on the way either! Thanks as always for reading! xo Brianna

Kimono Love






I am not even going to lie I have probably worn this outfit about 10 times this summer (slight exaggeration). But seriously... this is basically my summer uniform. I love how easy this is to throw on and go. I couldn't link my kimono and shorts exactly, but I linked some other cute alternatives below and my tank is Charlie Southern via June and Beyond Boutique! I also linked these shoes below that I LOVE! They remind me of birkenstocks in a way except a tad girlier:)
Thanks for reading! Xo Brianna

Open Back Top





I have not blogged in over a week (oops). I took a little break just to enjoy my summer with out having to look cute every day (LOL). But I'm back... and obsessing over this top! If you're a college girl this top was basically made for you. Talk about a perfect going out top, but I love how it can be made casual too! I love it with my Kendra Scott Danielle earrings in white pearl (just recently got these and they go with everything!) 
I still can't believe I go back to school in less than a month! Doesn't seem real at all. I am going to try and do a better job blogging while in school this year. The goal is one post a week which I think is realistic! Thanks for reading! xo Brianna

Fourth of July Look #2






Happy Fourth of July! I will be spending my fourth with my family in Hot Springs, AR (more specifically Hot Springs Village). It's gorgeous here and we got lucky with some cooler and not so humid weather! I linked everything below. The accesories and shoes are linked exactly, but my shorts and tee are old so I linked similar ones! Thanks for reading & enjoy your holiday weekend!

Black Romper








It's been so rainy/cloudy all week here... I am really wanting some sun! This romper and denim jacket are old, but I linked similar ones below and I linked all the other items exactly! I got these earrings from Rocksbox and I always thought they looked more formal because of the crystal, but I think this look proves they are just as adorable worn casual. If you want to try a month of Rockbox for free (you can cancel anytime you want) use code 'briannaxoxo1'! I am loving these jeweled sliders. They are the perfect "dress up or down shoe" and were a steal at just $20. These were on my July Wishlist blog post that you can read here. Thanks for reading! xo Brianna
