Hey everyone! This is a very different type of post but I'm excited because I want to show you how my first ever spray tan turned out! I didn't know how to show the development of my tan with out filming it, so I created a vlog-style video to show you the whole process. Please keep in mind that I am anything but a pro vlogger so this video might be a bit rough. Anyway, I was super happy with how my tan turned out and would recommend the place I went to anyone who lives in Austin. I got the lightest tan you could and would never go darker. All I wanted was a glow and that is defiantly what I got. I didn't exfoliate or do anything special before the tan, so I have no idea if doing that would make a difference. I hope you guys enjoy this video and don't laugh to hard at my poor filming skills. :)

Hey everyone! Today is going to be a super casual post about some clothes I've bought recently. Some of these items are more day to day pieces so they probably won't ever be shown in a look, but I still thought it would be fun to mention what is new in my closet. I am a shop-a-holic so there will be bigger hauls in the future, but for now this is all my broke college student budget could afford!
1. Converse Shoes
I have been looking for a pair of fashionable sneakers for a while now. I love the classic adidas ones everyone has, but I kinda wanted to be different. I also didn't want white because I knew they would get dirty instantly. I used to live in my converse as a kid so I was so happy to find these on sale for $35!! They are casual enough for me to wear with tshirts but also fashionable enough to be paired with jeans. These will for sure be in upcoming looks.
2. Tennis Skirt
I've mentioned this in a blog post before, but tennis skirts are huge at my college. Everyone wears them to class and even for a casual night out. I have slowly been buying more and more because they are so cute and make everyone's legs look amazing. This is a lululemon tennis skirt that I got off ebay for $25!! Seriously go hit up ebay for amazing deals. The picture on the left is the front and the one on the right is the back.
Last weekend I went to brunch with my mom and so many of my friends were wearing jumpsuits. I told my mom not to let me forget that I wanted to buy one for next year and then while I was shopping I stumbled up on this! So I am a little early in buying a romper for an event that is literally a year away, but I couldn't just leave it at the store. This romper is Free People but I found it at TJ Maxx for $40. I'm not sure if I can find the exact link because it was from TJ Maxx so I will link something similar. I am waiting for any excuse to come along for me to wear this jumpsuit because I am absolutely in love with it.
Easter Sunday is right around the corner so I've rounded up 12 dresses UNDER $100 to help those of you who still haven't found an outfit. These dresses could also work for other occasions like graduation or end of year brunches. They all are relatively conservative and work perfectly for daytime. I found every item shown on shopbob.com. They are also having an incredible sale right now on full priced and sale items. So everything shown here is marked under $100, but if you use the code 'EVENT17' you could get an additional 20% off orders under $500 or 25% off orders over $500! So grab several of these pieces for upcoming events at a discounted price!! If I were to buy only one things from this sale it would have to be this gorgeous pink Mink Pink dress on sale for $77. Click the pictures below to see where everything is from.
This past weekend was my sorority's moms weekend! I had so much fun shopping, eating and bowling with my mom all weekend. This is my outfit from Sunday at the very last event; a mother-daughter brunch. It was at this gorgeous hotel that I have always wanted to go inside. We had some really yummy food and got to sit around and hang out my friends and their moms. I wore this dress that I got off Revolve from Tularosa. I literally got the last one in stock so unfortunately I can't link it. I have been following Tularosa for a while but never bought anything because it was all out of my price range. However, this dress was originally $180, but I got it on sale for $40 from Revolve. Seriously one of the best steals I've ever found. Revolve has great deals like that all the time, making it one of my go to places to find dresses. My shoes are from Target and my purse is from Urban Outfitters. It was also on sale and I love the tassel details on all the corners. I will like everything shown or something similar down below.
Hey everyone! Today I made a master lists of formal dresses! At my college #formalszn is right around the corner so I thought this would be helpful. I know dresses can add up, especially if you're going to more than one formal, so I found 15 dresses under $100. Some of these are actually priced that low and some are on sale. All of these are short dresses because from my experience most sororities only have one long dress formal every four years. I actually might post a collection of long dresses later just to help people out if they are still looking for one. I am wearing a romper that I got from boohoo last semester to my formal. It isn't in this collection, but be expecting a post on that in the next couple of weeks! I also have done another formal outfit options post that included the dress I wore so my semi formal so make sure you check that out! I have linked everything at the very bottom, so just click on the picture of the dress to shop.
Hey everyone! So today I looked at my calendar and realized I only have a month of school left!! I'm pumped because it means only one more month of exams and stress and also one more month left in my freshman dorm. Don't get me wrong, I love my dorm, but I am excited to move out because it means I get to move into my first apartment!!!! Y'all I'm seriously so excited!! I am sharing a 4 bedroom apartment with 7 other girls (ik crazy right) and we've just recently started planning out what furniture and stuff we want. I decided to show y'all the vibes I'm going for in my part of my room. I can't wait to see how it actually turns out.
I want to blend southern and bohemian vibes to get my room decor! Not all of these things I've shown here will go in my bedroom. The cow hide rug and welcome mat will be elsewhere in the apartment. We've already started a turquoise theme with the furniture we got for the living room so I would really like to also incorporate that in my room. I thought the turquoise picture frames from TJ Maxx were super cute. I also am thinking that I'm going to use my pillows as a way to have the bohemian influence. I really want them to have a pop of color to contrast the rest of my neutral decor. Also, while I don't know what pieces from this collage specifically will actually make it into my room, I really want the double cactus murals to be there somewhere (I'm obsessed)! I hope this was interesting to anyone who is redecorating their apartment or just moving into one, like me!I will 100% be posting more as I buy apartment decor over the summer.
This was another piece I picked up for spring break. I did wear it once when we tried to have a fancy dinner during the week. However, it turns out the entire island was packed so we couldn't find a restaurant that would take our whole group. We ended up going to some weird/gross pizza joint which is why I didn't take pictures in this outfit there. I got this romper from Buffalo Exchange so it is going to be hard to find the exact one but I'll link something similar. The tag says its from the brand Zouk: which I have never heard of. I love shopping at Buffalo for inexpensive but super cute items like this. Buffalo is seriously a college student's dream because of their prices. I paired the romper with my new favorite shoes from Target! My sister got them for me for Christmas and I wear them all the time. Everything or something very similar will be linked down below.
Hey everyone! I was on one of my favorite sites, polyvore.com, and created a couple of outfits that I think are perfect for spring. I used the pre-set templates that polyvore has to get all the cool background items. Usually I make my own collages but today I'm sick and have a ton of school work, so the templates made by other's will have to do. Both outfits have a lot of color and fun accents, like the pom-poms on the first blue top! Also, I have been seeing denim jackets everywhere so I had to throw one of those in there. A lot of the pieces are from revolve and are on SALE! I always find fantastic deals from Revolve on super cute and unique items. Make sure you click on the pictures below the collages to shop anything you are interested in.
Hey everyone! I have been eyeing several items throughout this month so I thought I would share them with you! As a college student I am #broke so I will not be getting all if any of these things on my wish list soon, but they are definitely things I'm saving up for.
1. Casual Sneakers
I am in desperate need for some non-athletic sneakers. I want comfy shoes I can wear with both legging and jeans. I have my much adored snake print vans, but I want something that looks more like a tennis shoe. The ones I would buy in a heart beat if I could are those adorable Steve Madden Freebird Sneakers!!! They are a bit to much for me to buy at retail price and too new to be affordable on ebay so I might wait until summer time to see if I can get a better deal.
2. High neck bras
This is one I will probably get this month. I have been loving pairing high neck bra's with vneck tees. I think you could wear them out with jeans or even causally to class with leggings. Free People and Calvin Klein sell some adorable high neck bras, but I might stick with the ~slightly~ more inexpensive target ones.
3. Day & Night Skirts
I need a skirt that I can wear both at daytime and at night. Right now I only own super girly skirts that work for things like church and then envelope skirts that I would only wear at night. I think the denim skirts with the zig zag seam or corduroy skirts would work for both day and night, which would be so convenient. I feel like I could probably find some decently priced ones at Forever21 or Urban.
Hey! Hope you had a great spring break! I went to South Padre with my sorority for a couple days. I bought these super cute palm tree shorts to wear out while we were there but never got the chance too. It turns out the going out scene in South Padre is a little different from Austin. (If you've been there you know what I mean) I still think these shorts are really fun for spring/summer and will definitely try to find another occasion to wear them. My top is from Fabletics. Even though it is meant for working out it is still a light cotton material. I absolutely love the twist detail in the back so I dress it up as opposed to working out it in. I have ordered several things from Fabletics throughout this year and have honestly loved everything I've received. Everything is extremely versatile and can be worn basically at all times, like this top. I will try to find everything I'm wearing online or something similar and leave them linked down below!
