My Neckerchief Obsession

I am not sure if you’ve seen my last few Instagram posts, but I am obsessed with ‘neckerchiefs’. Essentially it’s just a handkerchief that’s used as a neck scarf. I am so loving this trend!

The other day I was at Old Navy checking out and the cashier told me she didn’t feel comfy wearing the neckerchief. I felt the SAME way the first time I wore one. I actually took it off halfway through the day because I felt so weird wearing it. The next time I had it on, I stuck it through. Just wear it once and you’ll be obsessed like me!! Dresses, sweaters, tanks, whatever it may be, these will match.

This jean button down is a Merona top from Target circa 9th grade. I am wearing black, Bershka jeans, and the Old Navy Neckerchief! Click here to buy!! It’s on sale for $7 right now and you get more $$$ off with code ‘THANKYOU’. They’ve got so many cute patterns… it’s dangerous!

Hope you all enjoy this trend and embrace the 50’s vibe it gives!! Have a great week!

What better way to spend your Sunday in the sun, with a friend, yummy food, and pretty flowers?! This was my outfit today and I LOVE IT! You have seen some of these pieces before, mainly because all of my spring clothes are still in Memphis at my parents house, but also just because they’re just that dang comfy!

I am wearing a pair of Bershka black, high-waisted jeans, a striped American Eagle flowy top, and my Sanctuary blue jean jacket! Oh… and can’t forget my Old Navy Neckerchief. By the way, Old Navy is 40% everything today…!

Hope you all have a great week!

Casual Saturday Midi

The weather in NWA has been absolutely gorgeous! When we shot this outfit, it was 80 degrees and sunny with the best breeze. We have the Ozark Mountains to thank for our constant wind!

I love to throw on a blue jean jacket with any outfit to make it a bit more casual and add a bit of fun to the look! Here, I am wearing a pair of clogs, a sage green midi dress with smocked top, and my distressed jean jacket! This entire outfit is from TJ Maxx and cost under $65 together!! I will post

Styling Your Statement Heels

I have found the most gorgeous of gorgeous heels at TJ Maxx. They are perfect for spring and I am in love!! I have not been able to find a link for the exact pair on the Nine West website, but I have found a few pairs that are similar in style that I will link at the end of this post!

So, as I mentioned, these heels are Nine West and from TJ Maxx. I purchased them for $34.99. I think the best thing about this pair of heels is that they can be dressed up or down. The light and dark pinks allow you to mix and match with basically any color top in your closet! I paired them with a peach, velvet top and a blue, chiffon top for a fancier look. They’d look great with a black pencil skirt or just a pair of dark skinny jeans.

You really can’t go wrong with a statement heel!

Hope you enjoy!

How cute is this top from Old Navy? Right now you can earn Super Cash by shopping there. I ran in the other day and found this adorable striped top. It is super lightweight and has the cutest tassels. The best part? It was only $12.

I am also wearing my William Rast jeans with a pair of Rock & Candy slide on sandals from TJ Maxx last summer. I couldn’t find the exact olive green pair I have online, so here is a link to a similar pair! This outfit is great for on the go and will give you a little break from the cool wind since the weather hasn’t turned completely warm yet.

I hope you enjoy this look and can get a little spring inspiration from the sun that finally decided to pop out!

Let Your Organization Skills Bloom

Screen Shot 2018-04-17 at 12.35.04 PM

This week I had the opportunity to partner with bloom planners to create the first part of  my On the Go blog series! Bloom has a fun variety of planners to choose from! Being organized is one of my number one priorities when I know I have a busy week ahead, so I am going to share some of my tips and tricks on staying on top of things!

I am not sure about you, but I definitely have a mental calendar in my head. If I have a hair appointment in 3 months on a certain day, my brain automatically files it away. Despite this mental calendar, important dates still fall through the cracks! With the help of bloom and their fun planners, I can stay on top of things no matter how crazy life may be!

IMG_6447-2.jpg

TIP #1: Prioritize

There’s nothing more frustrating when you have a long to do list and some things that are critical fall to the wayside. I like to prioritize my top 3-5 todo’s that must be done that day. I love bloom’s Bound To-Do Books for this very reason! This undated to-do book allows you to prioritize your day, plan your meals, and even write your grocery list! What is even better is everything is kept all in one place! With my graduation coming quickly, I have been so on-track by doing this! I love lists and feel so proud when I get to cross tasks off of it!

TIP #2: Get Up Early

I know not everyone is an early bird like me, but I promise if you get up a tad early each morning, you won’t be rushing out the door! I always end up forgetting something at home or leaving my breakfast on the counter if I am rushing, so I try to give myself a little leeway with time. Even if it’s ten extra minutes, you’ll thank yourself later. And, you’ll feel more productive!

TIP #3: Don’t Procrastinate

Ha, this one’s hard. I know. Procrastination seems like it can only be applied to school or work, but procrastination with chores (like folding laundry or emptying the clean dishwasher) will loom over your head. If you get those easy chores done as soon as they pop up, you will have time later to do the important things you enjoy!

TIP #4: Create Goals

A goal can be as little as making sure you make your bed every morning. Like I mentioned, each small victory will create a better attitude and drive your organization! Create goals in all facets of your life – work, school, family, friends, etc. Most of the very successful people in the business world make personal and professional goals and I think this is a great way to boost your drive by working towards something!

TIP #5: Use a Planner

All of the most organized people I know have some sort of planner or notebook that they always write important lists, dates, and names down. I think this is a great way to have everything in one central location. Personally, I love to-do lists in my bloom to-do book, but I also love using my planner to pencil in dates that are further down the road. Both of these allow me to stay on top of things and remember dates that are not coming down the pike just yet! Even if you aren’t in school, a planner is a great way to stay on top of your goals and have success in even the smallest of ways.

I know some of these tips may seem obvious, but I also know each one of them has helped me in more ways than I can count! I feel successful just crossing a day off my planner. Yes, sounds cheesy, but it’s true! Make sure to head over to bloom’s website or Insta to check out all of their pretty planners! I promise you that being organized is a game changer that you won’t regret!

Starting New

When they say it goes by in the blink, they aren’t kidding. I really don’t know who ‘they’ are, but I know they were definitely right!

College has been such a rewarding experience. I have been such a ‘busy’ college student, but in just a few short months I will probably look back on this and say ‘wow, I could have fit a lot more in my busy day.’ Throughout college, I have gotten really involved in my specific college on campus, as well as my sorority and it’s been so fun. During my senior year, I worked part-time and also started my own Etsy shop called Redhead Threads. It is such a fun outlet where I can connect with other creators on Etsy and Instagram! I have loved college, but am so excited to see what Nashville has in store for me!!

All of this to say, I wanted to share a few of my graduation pictures that the lovely Emma Farr (@emmafarrphoto). She is great!! If you are in the NWA area, definitely give her a shout out for some pics.
