Riding coasters in style

Top: Forever 21 (Sold out in Periwinkle) // Shorts: Aeropostale // Shoes: Vans 
// Watch: Michael Kors

When I am trying to decide what to wear when I go to an amusement park I always keep comfort in mind. My go to outfit usually consists of a light weight shirts, some shorts and Vans. I love this periwinkle top because the material is so soft and the color is to die for!

Ever since I bought my season pass at Carowinds I have gone pretty much once every week. I mean, how could I pass that up? It's 20 minutes down the road! I love roller coasters! See that giant roller coaster behind me? I conquered that bad boy... 3 times! I know, pretty impressive.

Happy Birthday to me!! Today I said goodbye to my teenage years and said hello to my twenties! (This sounds so weird.) It's weird to think that I'm 20 years old now, I still accidentally tell people I'm 17!  This past weekend my friends and I celebrated my birthday and it was filled with laughter and a ton of sweets. The weekend started off with dancing the night away on Thursday, Carowinds on Friday and a birthday dinner on Saturday. 

Saturday night we went to a restaurant in Uptown called Blue. It's one of my favorites and the bread is amazing! I wore this girly shoulder cut out dress to dinner with some brown wedges. After dinner we decided to explore uptown. Our adventure consisted of a street magic show, creeping on high school proms and searching for dessert. Needless to say I had a wonderful birthday weekend. Here's to entering my twenties!

Lilly Pulitzer for Target

The day is finally here! Lilly Pulitzer is in target! I've been waiting for the day that Target launches their Lilly Pulitzer collection for months and unfortunately it was a let down for me. Target opened their doors at 8 am this morning and within minutes the entire collection was sold out! Crazy right? At first I thought it was just my Target, but it happened to every Target in my area and I have been reading tweets that others have experienced the same thing. I was defiantly not prepared for the collection to be sold out so fast and unfortunately I left the store empty handed. The collection is even sold out online!

I think what I'm most disappointed about with this experience was the fact that people bought a whole stock of Lilly items just to resell on Ebay for double or triple the price. Really? There's no need to buy a shift dress that was retailed at $38 in store to sell online for $150. This should be an exciting time to have limited edition Lilly items out for an affordable price not an opportunity to make a profit out of it.

On a lighter note, I'm crossing my fingers that Target will hear all the demands for more and restock soon! Here are some of the pieces I had my eyes on from the collection (obsessing over the fan dance shift dress and the pineapple sandals!). 

Did you get lucky and managed to snag something from the collection? If so, please share and tell me what you got!

Pineapple Obsession

If you have been following me on Pinterest you may have noticed that I may have a slight pineapple obsession. Whether it be eating fresh pineapples, sippin' on pineapple smoothies or wearing them on my clothes I have been obsessed! This may have be the trendiest fruit ever. What do you guys think about this pineapple trend? 

On a side note, it's my birthday week! I can't believe I have one week left of being a teenager. Crazy right? I'm so excited for my birthday weekend, festivities start Thursday!

Peaches and Ponytails

Peach shirt: Forever 21 // Jeans: Forever 21 // Leopard flats: Forever 21 // Necklace: Forever 21

There's something about a high pony that just makes me feel so sassy. I mean, it's perfect. You can throw up a high pony if you're having a bad hair day, if it's hot outside or if you want to add some sass to your look. Ok, can we talk about how beautiful the color of this shirt is? It just screams Spring to me! I paired this peachy blouse with a white statement necklace, some dark jeans and leopard flats for a nice pattern pop. 

P.S. 8 days until my birthday weekend! Super excited!

Mauvey Monday

Dress: Deezigns (no longer in business) // Flats: Steve Madden // Handbag: Steve Madden

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful start to your week. My week is going to be jammed packed with studying, exams, and birthday planning. Let's just say it's going to be a long week..

Ok, enough about stressing about how my week is going to go. Have you ever gone through your closet and found pieces you forgot you even had? This happens to me alllll the time. There are even pieces in my closet that I have bought years ago that still have price tags on them! (Maybe that's a sign that I need to stop shopping so much.)  One of the pieces I rediscovered in my closet was this mauvey pink and black dress. I love how causal this dress is and I don't have to add any accessories to it. It's the perfect dress to throw on and run out the door when you're late! Maybe next time you're in need of an outfit to wear for an occasion, try checking your closet to see if you have any hidden gems. You may re-fall in love with something!

Easter dress

Dress: Marshalls // Wedges: Catos // Watch: Michael Kors //
 Flower Bangle: China Town in San Francisco// Pearl bracelet: Forever 21

Happy Easter everyone! Even if you don't celebrate Easter, I hope you have a wonderful Sunday! There's always an urgency to find the perfect Easter dress, or at least it is for me and the people I'm surrounded with. I actually found this dress from Marshall's last Spring and this is my first time wearing it! I just love all the intricate lace detailing it has. This outfit is super girly and I think it is perfect for Easter or Spring in general! 

On a side note, can we talk about this North Carolina weather? One day it's 85 degrees and beautiful and the next it is 55... Like, can it just please be Summer already?

Spring dresses

One of my favorite things about spring (besides the warm weather and flowers blooming) are all the pretty pastel dresses that are out! From lace, to florals, to pastel pink to cream, I want them all! Easter is just around the corner and nothing else screams an Easter dress to me than a lacy pastel dress! Here are some of my favorite dresses that I think would be perfect for Easter or spring in general (I'm LOVING the pastel pink dress!!) What is your favorite thing about spring?

Blue and yellow

Shirt: Forever 21 // Cardigain: Old Navy // Necklace: Sold out (similar) // 
Jeans: American Eagle //Booties: Forever 21 // Handbag: Daily Look

I'm so happy that the weather here is starting to warm up a little bit! I just can't wait till it's 85 degrees everyday and I can start wearing my cute spring dresses! Anyways, here's a cute casual outfit I put together to head out and run errands. I always love pairing statement necklaces with collard shirts and I think this yellow necklace goes perfectly with this navy blue button up! 

Ok, can we take a second and point out how awkward these photos look? I need to learn how to pose. If anyone can give me some tips I would greatly appreciate it! I hope you guys have a happy hump day! (: 

P.S. It's my birthday month!! *Insert 50 party emojis here*
