FLARE HEM JEANS









Hey y'all!



Cheers to the weekend!



Hope y'all have some exciting plans. Last night I had my last formal for my sorority, so today I am sleeping in and catching up on a busy week. My little brother who is coming to K-State next year is coming up to visit for the day/night so I am excited to see him :) It is also my moms birthday so YAY for that. She is such a gem and I'm so lucky to have her in my life. I actually went home for less than 12 hours earlier this week so I luckily got to see her and celebrate a bit early!

I wanted to share this quick post to kick start your weekend. I have been loving these flare hem jeans -- its such a statement for sure but they have been fun to try and style. I linked a few affordable options including a more affordable option as well! I am also in looove with this blouse -- it is under $20 so such a steal. I have been wearing it quite a lot this spring. It can be dressed up or down so its a great option to add to your wardrobe!

Thanks so much for reading. Talk to you in my next post!

FRIDAY FRIVOLITIES #2




First off....can I get a TGIF?!

Second off...hey y'all :) Welcome to another blog post!

I am SO glad it is Friday. Beyond grateful. This week has been really busy and stressful -- classes are starting to wind down/it seems like all my professors are trying to squeeze in that last little bit a lot of work before the end of the semester. The senioritis is even more real in college than it was in high school. I honestly think about the fact that I am planning a wedding, working, going to school and blogging....sometimes it feels like I bite off more than I can chew! This week is an example of that -- sometimes I get really anxious and this week was one of those times. I can't always do much about it besides just taking deep breaths and trying to power through, taking each day just a little bit at a time. I talked about this on my Instagram the other day and I feel like having these real talks is good because I know other people have to feel the same way. Life is always hectic and I'm sure you can relate to having a lot to do in a particular week. If you're feeling that way or just need some general encouragement, I have been reading Psalms 46:1-3,7 a lot the past few days.

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains should slip into the heart of the sea; though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold."

I just love that verse! If you're feeling stressed, don't forget to run to God, and despite anything that happens He's in control. There is no greater peace than that!

In other news, today I wanted to share a round up of a few really fun pieces I have been eyeing. I started this Friday Frivolities series and it has been so fun looking all week to share the cutest new arrivals I can possibly find to tell y'all about. Sometimes it is hard to not get caught up in buying everything that catches my eye, but I love still getting to share trendy pieces with y'all in this way.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend y'all!

CABBY HATS FOR SPRING













I always find it difficult to transition from winter to spring, and figuring out how to dress cute, and seasonally appropriate without freezing to death. Can anyone else relate? Here in Kansas it really doesn't get warm until late May, so even wearing shorts can be too much! One thing I've noticed is that the cabby hats/baker boy hats we wore all winter are still a trend going into spring. While I am usually a brights + colorful kinda gal in the spring, this bolder/chic/military-esque vibe is kinda fun to test out too! 

I paired mine with a simple tee (my favorite all throughout winter) which I extended the wear out of by wearing it with shorts. I for whatever reason love the combination of shorts and longsleeve tees/sweaters/sweatshirts. My shorts are a total fav, and if you are looking for a complete guide to modest shorts, check out the post I did recently all about where to find modest, affordable shorts! I also love the miltary green color of this hat. Lastly, I wore my favorite under $30 espadrille platform sandals. Y'all I think I've worn these 50 times this spring already I just love them!

What do you think of this trend for spring? Leave a comment down below!

JUMPSUIT + EMBROIDERED CARDIGAN











Hey y'all!

Happy Wednesday! Once again I am typing this and I can't believe that I'm saying that. The weeks are just flying by!

Today I am sharing this adorable simple look that is so easy to recreate. I found this jumpsuit on clearance awhile back, but I love that it is a plain color and a simple cut, so it is totally something that you can recreate. I found some really similar options that I have also had my eye on, so you can shop them above! To make it cooler weather appropriate since it has been a bit chilly here lately, I threw on this embroidered cardigan. I love the embroidered detailing and I think these two together make the perfect combo!

Today, since it is Wednesday, I wanted to share just a mini update for y'all because my mom and I are in the thick of wedding planning lately. There is exactly 52 days left so it is seriously crunch time. Some of my recent accomplishments include sending out the invites, working on the reception playlist, getting the bridesmaid dresses in, bridal showers, and y'all I'm getting my dress fitted TOMORROW:) so much exciting stuff happening, and I am loving it. I have been trying to really soak up the last bits of wedding planning since its my one and only chance to do it! Its been really fun to make all the details come to life. 

Thanks so much for reading y'all, hope you enjoyed and have a great day!

CULOTTE JEANS















Hey y'all!

Happy Tuesday!

Today's post is styling these culotte jeans. They are definitely probably not something that is up everyone's alley, but I have seen culottes for seasons now, and I thought it was interesting that they were now making their way into denim! Plus they are so comfy and sometimes I am just over super tight skinny jeans so these are just way comfier! ha.

I styled the jeans with some simple pieces that would make this out easy to recreate/incorporate into your own wardrobe. Of course you could also swap out this bolder pair of jeans for your favorite style or pair you already have! I love this cream sweater (I wear it all the time) and of course if y'all haven't noticed I am obsessed with these neck scarves...another thing I wear all. the. time. My favorite suede blush slides, a bold purse and my staple sunnies complete the look!

Thanks so much for checking out this post! What do you think of the culotte jeans? Would you wear them, and if so, how would you style them? Leave a comment down below, I'd love to hear!
