Spring Shoe Guide

Happy #TuesdayShoesday everyone! I don’t know about you, but it is finally starting to feel like spring in North Carolina. With that being said, I’m ready to toss aside my winter boots and start bringing out my spring shoes! When it comes to spring shoes, I feel like there are four main categories I fall back on: casual/athletic shoes (think slip-ons!), sandals, wedges, and heels. And with those four categories, I’ve picked out some shoes that I’m loving for the season. Some of these shoes are ones that I already own, others are on my wishlist, and they are all at a variety of price points. Happy shopping!

Polka Dots for Spring: the Print You Need

Polka Dots for Spring: the Print You Need

polka dots for spring 3polka dots for spring 4polka dots for spring 2polka dots for spring 1Hello from New Orleans! I can’t believe today is my last day here, it’s been such a fun spring break. And I can’t wait to share all of our travel deets on a New Orleans travel guide coming soon (check out my London travel guide here)!

But anyway, here is the look I wore for spending the day in City Park. We walked around the grounds, played mini golf, and had lunch—honestly you could spend days just in the park. Because we were going to be walking around and playing mini golf, I wanted to wear something comfy, casual, but cute. And you really can’t go wrong with a cute top and light shorts with sandals!

I don’t know about you, but I’m over florals for spring—it’s all about the polka dots! I love the unique color of these shorts paired with white polka dots. They will definitely be on repeat through spring and summer. I also love the subtle ruffle detail on the hem and down the front. It paired so well with the babydoll top.

The best part of this outfit is that my top and shorts together are only $20! Plus, Shein is having a sale right now through April 14th. You can get an extra 15% off with the code shsale058! Definitely check out my top and shorts, plus some other items. Shein is my favorite place to shop trendy items for less.

The Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without (Not Makeup!)

Happy Thursday! It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty based post, so I thought today I would share some of the beauty products I use all the time. These are the products I use either every day, or at the very least every week.

First up is a jade roller. And to be perfectly honest, my dad broke part of mine awhile back, so I’m only really using the smaller end. While I do plan to get a new one (eventually) I still love using the smaller end after I apply eye cream. I have chronic puffy under eyes and dark circles from genetics and allergies, so I like to do anything I can. I really think the coolness of the jade helps with the puffiness—at least marginally.

Next is the new self tanner I’ve been using. I have to say, this is one of my favorite self tanners ever! I put it on and am instantly tanner, so by the time it’s been on for a few hours I look like I’ve been in Florida! Also, you can’t beat that $13 price tag. One caveat: it definitely transfers color onto clothes and sheets, but it easily comes out in the wash! But, if stained sheets really bother you, I also really like this pre-shower self tanner that’s stain free (it just takes a little longer to build a tan).

You guys. I have been using the Josie Maran Argan oil since middle school and can’t imagine life without it. I use it for literally everything: my face, my hair, my cuticles, even on my legs, arms, and feet! A little goes a long way with this stuff and it is so worth it. I usually use it on my face at night under moisturizer, but like I said there are so many different ways it can be used.

I don’t know about you, but dry shampoo saves my life on a weekly basis. I’ll be perfectly honest here, I hate washing my hair. The shower pressure in my apartment sucks so it takes 7 years to get shampoo out of my thick hair. And then blow drying and styling? Way too much effort on my part. So I try to go as long as possible without washing and I am pretty lucky because my hair doesn’t get greasy very fast. But when it does, this dry shampoo comes to the rescue. I’ve tried others and have yet to find one that works as well as this product.

Just like the Argan oil, I’ve been using Clinique moisturizer for years. Occasionally throughout the years I try a new moisturizer, but this is the one I always go back to. As someone with dry skin, this really does do the job.

Ok, you’re probably thinking, why is there a toothbrush on this list? But, I think keeping my teeth looking clean and white counts! My mom just got me an electric toothbrush for Christmas and I will never go back. Regular toothbrushes just don’t clean half as well. If you don’t have one yet, order ASAP!

Last on the list is this body lotion. Once again being honest, I forget to put lotion on my body (aside from my face and neck) all the time and have dry skin. But one use of this product and my legs are looking fresh and moisturized! I love that it’s pretty much fragrance free too—I weirdly hate when my lotion competes with my perfume. This is the perfect lotion to put on before bed and wake up with fresh looking skin!

That’s it for this week, I hope you enjoyed it! What other beauty posts would you like to see in the future?

The Teddy Jacket You Can Wear Through Spring

The thing I hate most about this time of year? I never know what to wear. One day it’s cold (like today), the next it’s sunny and warm. The way I’ve found that I can deal with this weather is to wear a lot of light layers. And with that being said, this teddy jacket is a game changer. I cannot tell you how often I’ve worn this since it came in the mail almost two weeks ago—I’m pretty sure my roommates are tired of seeing it.

The reason I love this jacket is that it’s so soft and extremely light. It has the look of the heavier teddy coats that were taking over all winter long, but significantly thinner. I love that I can wear this on the warm days over a tank or t-shirt, and when it’s cold I can throw a heavier jacket on top. This jacket has been my go-to in place of cardigans while I’m in class (I don’t know why but the classrooms are always freezing).

In keeping with the weather, I paired my teddy jacket with the bodysuit I’ve been wearing since the summer. It was such a good piece and I should definitely buy it in white. Over that, I put on my Levi’s. Side note: up until this moment that I went to find a link to these jeans, I was under the impression that they were boyfriend fit. Apparently they’re skinny jeans, but whatever… Finally, to top off the casual look, I threw on my absolute favorite shoes ever. I thought they were completely out of stock—which they are on Nordstrom’s site—but I found them fully stocked in all colors! I could definitely use another pair since mine are pretty dirty.

In the spring, I plan on pairing this jacket with a simple tank top and denim shorts. I can throw on a pair of sandals and be good to go! It really is the perfect transitional piece from now through spring.

How do you dress for this in-between weather? Let me know in the comments below!

Affordable Swimsuit Round Up

Happy Monday! I don’t know about you guys, but I am so done with the rainy, cold weather we’ve had in North Carolina. To deal with it, I just keep thinking about my upcoming trip to New Orleans. While it’s not a beach location (maybe I’ll get some pool time?), I know that a lot of people will be heading to the beach for spring break. So in anticipation, I though I would create a round up of affordable swimsuits and cover-ups I’m loving. Most of my picks are under $40!
