Jackie Flares

Y’all!!! Flares!! They are back, and I am so happy about it!!

It took me a little while to find the perfect pair (since my legs are so incredibly short), but this pair from Free People was only $78, and I am beyond obsessed.

Since it’s exam week and I’m not exactly inspired to get dressed up, because let’s be honest, who is there to impress in the library? This flare jean and comfy/baggy tee is perfect for day-long study marathons.

I always used to tell my mom I was born in the wrong era.  The late 60s, early 70s…that’s where all the fun happened.  Good music, good fashion, good times all around really. This outfit combo really helps me live out what I wish were my glory days.

Anyways, I can sit here all day and go on about how I wish I was a flower child, but that would be what others refer to as procrastination.  Considering I have an exam tomorrow, I better get back to it.  ONE MORE, before I’m off to Asheville for the weekend to be a bridesmaid in my best friend’s wedding!! Can’t wait to share the outfits I have planned. [Hint Hint: LOTS and lots of Rose Quartz 😉 ]

Until next time, thank you so much for reading, and happy studying!!

Thankful Thursday

Even though exams are kind of buzz-killing the fact that tomorrow is Friday, there’s still so much to be thankful for.  Here’s what’s keeping me sane this week…


Lunch with a view.  Sunny and 75, the day after Thanksgiving has me thanking the man upstairs that he made me a Carolina beach girl. I don’t do well without salt air and water in my life.

The beautiful view I mentioned above…well, ibid. (History paper citations are getting the best of me right now.)

My team. Especially for the laughs we shared over the NC State fans and their heckling us during the game on Saturday, which by the way, made our win that much sweeter. #ourstate … Can’t wait to cheer on our boys at the ACC CHAMPIONSHIP this weekend, GO HEELS!!!!

Decorating our tree with these guys, for the third year in a row. Hoping we can keep the tradition alive in the Big Apple next year. [fingers crossed!]


This divine cup of marshmallows with a tiny bit of hot chocolate–Rudolph may have been eyeing it, but my sweet treats are one thing I do not share ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ….


Surprise! Surprise! My team, again….my second family, really.  And more importantly Linda’s for catering our halftime breaks during football season, and for hosting our FLAWLESS Christmas party every year. If you’ve never been, four words…

Mac. &. Cheese. … GO.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week thus far, thank you so much for reading!























Wearable Blanket

Exam season is upon us in Chapel Hill, and much like the rest of this college town, I’m drowning.  Between football games [yes, our team is still playing!! YAY!], basketball games, preparing for exams, and trying to not let my excitement for the holidays contribute to my inevitable productivity slump…it’s been so difficult to get myself out of bed in the mornings, much less prep myself for blog posts.  Life is tough y’all!

But I’m making time for this particular post because, well, I need a break from the hectic life of a student athlete, and because I hold this segment is close to my heart.

Small businesses, they’re asset to my personal style, and really just a huge part of me.  Being born to two entrepreneurs, I know the time, effort, and grit it takes to go out on a limb and start your own company.  I have a lot of respect for those that can do this at all, successful or not.  However, being successful makes small-business owners that much more legit, and quite frankly, heroes in my book.

When I say small businesses have a major influence on my personal style, I’m referring to boutiques.

The only thing I love more than traveling, is discovering boutiques wherever I travel to.  I adore boutique shopping mostly because whatever I find, it’ll be unique to me. While I’m all about sharing my outfits with y’all…here comes the honestly part I promised you…I love being different.  I thrive off of wearing something that no one else will find because I discovered it in the back of some cute little boutique in Annapolis, or wherever it may be! Granted, I’ll tell you where I found it, but I can’t promise that the same products will be there when you are.

While I adore the green, red, and cream-colored blanket scarves as much as the next girl, I am loving this high-low blanket vest even more!  I found it at Lilac Bijoux, the Annapolis-based boutique I mentioned last week, and I cannot get enough of it!

Walking around Chapel Hill in this thing, I feel like I’m wrapped up in my favorite blanket that is normally set aside for ‘Sex and the City’ binge days…I know you know what I’m talking about.

It’s perfect for those dry shampoo, pony-tail, leggings, and oversized sunnies type of days, to hide from anyone you may run into on the street (as shown below)….aka, my life in the coming weeks.

Since it’s from a boutique, and duplicates are hard to run across sometimes, I’ve linked a few similar options below!

I hope everyone is surviving the exam and pre-holiday madness! Thank you so much for reading.
