Stripes and Sweaters

What’s up guys? I hope your week has been good so far – if not, just hang in there. It’s almost Friday. 😉

NC weather is making me mad right now. First it wants to be cold, then it wants to be hot….it’s November, y’all. Today it’s 80 degrees outside. However, being the stubborn girl that I am, I’ve been wearing my sweaters and doing exactly what the name says: sweat. It’s all in the name of fashion, of course.


Grey Sweaters are so versatile for fall – I have three or four that I switch out through the cooler months.

Striped T-shirts – every girl should have at least one. They’re classy yet comfortable, so you can dress them up or down.

Boyfriend Jeans are the ultimate stylish-yet-comfortable jeans. I like mine a bit tighter in the thighs so they don’t look like sweatpants, but you can go as baggy or as tight as you like. Just make sure they have that trademark cuff on the bottom.!

Pink Converse…are you tired of seeing them yet?

My exact necklace isn’t available online, but you can check out these other Fair Trade options.

My Book of the Day is Battle of the Ampere by Richard Paul Evans. If you’re into sci-fi, you’ll love this book!

I’m going to go take off my sweater now…the temperature is still rising and I have to say, I’m a bit grumpy about it. 😩



It’s Fall, Y’all!

Ahhhh I’m so excited for FALL! The leaves, the sweaters, and of course, the Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Today was a bit warm to wear my favorite sweater and boots, so I put together a little Fall Transition outfit that turned out super cute!


I love this Grey T-Shirt Dress – it’s as comfy as a nightgown, and you can dress it up or down depending upon the occasion.

Plaid happens to be one of my favorite things. It’s probably grown from a love to an unhealthy obsession as I’ve gotten older, but you won’t tell, will you? 😉 This Pink Plaid is literally to die for. ❤

Converse tennis shoes for obvious reasons. #shoegoals


happy fall, y’all ❤



Tennis Shoes – An Illustrated Guide to Why I Have Four Pairs

Yes, I have four pairs of tennis shoes. But before you start to judge me, let me start out by saying that I did not own a pair of athletic tennis shoes until about a month ago. I’ve never been “athletic” in any sense other than dance, but when I tried out for a volleyball team I needed to have a pair. I didn’t make the team, so that kinda stinks…at least I can wear my tennis shoes and look sporty when I go places!


I really like these, even though I was a bit optimistic about making the team seeing that I matched the orange in the shoes to the orange in the team uniforms. I tried on a bunch of tennis shoes at the outlet mall, and by a bunch I mean pretty much every pair of tennis shoes at all of the shoe stores. Nike, as much I love the iconic swoop, didn’t “just do it” for me. (See what I did there? Haha.) ANYways, these New Balance tennis shoes are super comfortable, although if I don’t wear high enough socks they rub the back of my ankle.

For my next pair of tennis shoes, I have to thank my mother. She bought these for herself a couple of years ago and never wore them – since we have the convenience of the same size foot I kind of took them over.


These Converse a little beat up looking, but they’re one of my favorite pairs of shoes. After you’ve worn them for a while they really start to mold to your feet and become super comfy.

Third up on my tennis shoe list are my beloved Sperrys. I got them last year at T.J. Maxx for about $30 (regular price is $85!).


As you can see, I’ve worn them enough to completely wear out the “Sperr” from the sole of the left shoe. That seems a little strange to me considering I walk with both feet equally…

My last pair is actually from American Eagle! They’re not the best quality, but they weren’t expensive either so I guess I shouldn’t complain.


This is honestly THE WORST picture but it was hot and the mosquitoes were biting so I wasn’t going to get a perfect glamour shot. Y’all understand, right? I love the fun pattern on these shoes, but I obviously don’t wear them very often because they only match a select few of my outfits. A cute pair of tennis shoes like these are great if you find them inexpensively because they can add a personal touch to your outfit.

I hope you enjoyed my tennis shoe post, especially because I wrote this while scratching multiple mosquito bites. 😉
