The Fashionista

The Fashionista
This is the girl in your life that loves the luxurious things in life! I found a wide-array of options that are all reasonable prices! I know that any girl would love to receive these items (I myself, am asking for 3 of the times on on this one!)
The Athlete-2

The Athlete:
This girl loves working out or even just dressing in athleisure wear! I love the amazing details on those leggings and what girl doesn’t wear leggings?? Also bluetooth headphones are an awesome gift if you are willing to pay the price.
The Student

The Student:
For any girl that is in school (middle school to college) would love and use each of these items! I know that I am always using every single one of these items on a daily basis. Since the new year is just around the corner a new planner would be a great idea. Kate Spade has the CUTEST ones! Also a really nice water bottle or to-go coffee cup is perfect.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and got some ideas for what to get your loved ones this holiday season! Feel free to go check out my blog at!

LBD Under $50 + Life Update

Good morning!! I did take a little break from the blog after posting ever day for a month. What a week it has been! I have been extremely busy with it being right in the middle of online school at home and midterms… insanity. I also got accepted to all the schools I applied to! Still waiting in FIT… eye roll. It does feel surreal that in 2 months I will have a new home! And I can say with complete confidence I have absolutely no idea where that will be 🙂 Every time I think I know which school I want to go to I end up second guessing and watching videos that sway me towards another. On Sunday I will be going to visit URI and SCAD- Super excited to finally be going to Rhode Island, I’ve been dreaming of this place forever. Ive never been to Savannah either!!! Im hoping that will make my decision easier once I visit the schools, but it could make it even harder!!!!!!! Ok I promised I would never make my blog my diary so as promised here are some cute pics that Jeffrey took & my FAVORITE dress at the moment!!!!!!!!!! BTW ITS UNDER $40!! (scroll to bottom to shop)

Fall Trends I Love

Leaves are changing colors, and so should your closet! Pack away your bright fun summer colors and bring out the cool cozy fall tones. Big over-sized sweater, boots, booties, denim jackets, all the fall fun. Fall is my favorite when it comes to fashion and style. SO today Im going to be sharing some basic fall pieces that are very trendy that everyone should have in their closet! (For more fall outfit inspo click HERE)

First, A good cream colored over sized sweater. You could wear this as is, add a denim jacket, or wear a white collared shirt underneath. I picked this off white color that way its very versatile and you could wear with literally, anything. Heres a cute outfit example:


Next up, Hunter boots for sure. I love mine so much and get so excited wearing them every fall. Even though they are a rain boot they’re so stylish to wear during this season. And honestly you can get any color and be able to match the season even with a bright yellow boot. Here is a cute example:


Another trend Ive been feeling is white booties… I love the idea of having them underneath some boyfriend jeans. Inspiring example:



Next up, an oversized distressed denim jacket. These come in handy when its cold out and need a jacket over your sweater. Another look I really love is like an all black athleisure look with the denim jacket.. Example:


Lastly, an oversized cardigan. The perfect laying piece. Just throwing one on and you can change your entire outfit. Example:
