two piece sets

I LOVE two piece sets. I feel like they've come out in a major way this summer, and I love the way bloggers have been wearing and styling them. (I actually just ordered this one for my nursing school graduation!) So obviously I've been trolling around the internet and finding about fifty different sets that I now want. Whoops. So now I'm just going to make you guys want them too ;)

Which one is your favorite?

Cute tops and shorts are pretty much my staple in the summer. Easy to throw on, comfortable, and something I won't get too hot in. Especially when it's this breezy top from NTYLS, which is beyond comfortable. Add in favorite sunglasses and fun earrings, and I am set!

shirt: NTYLS c/o // shorts: Forever 21 (similar) // shoes: Chinese Laundry // sunglasses: nich boutique (similar) // earrings: Sparkle & Whim c/o // lips: NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Prague // bracelets: old (similar)

I'm also obsessed with this NYX matte creme. Has anyone else tried it?

weekly roundup

one: Jimmy Fallon has a sketch on his show called Kid Theatre, where he has elementary school kids write scripts based just on movie titles. So when Channing Tatum came on, they read kids' scripts for Magic Mike. I advise not watching at work, because you're going to crack up.

two: The 100 best puppy photos of all time. I'm totally keeping this page bookmarked for when I'm having a bad day and need a smile!

three: Remember when Chris Pratt was just the adorable dork on Parks and Recreation? And then became a super hot movie star and now everyone loves him? Well, in case you don't love him yet, here are 31 times Chris Pratt was perfect. I think I love him even more now. Time to go rewatch Parks and Rec.

five: And in case you haven't seen this hilarious video circulating Facebook, here's what happens when you ignore your girlfriend.

Have a fun weekend!

earrings under $40

I have never really been an earring girl. I usually stick with my diamond studs and get other fun jewelry. But for some reason lately I've been falling in love with gorgeous statement earrings! There are just so many fun ones out there, it's almost impossible to not find some you like. And since I am always trying to find the best deals, I've rounded up some of my favorites under $40!

Which pair is your favorite?

summer in lilly

A couple weekends ago, I got to go to the Lilly Pulitzer warehouse sale. It's held at a convention center in Oaks, PA, which is right by where my parents live. It's held for three days (Thursday through Saturday) every year at the beginning of June, and they have tons of pieces from past seasons on sale usually around 50% off. We went on the last day so there wasn't a ton of amazing things left, but I managed to score this gorgeous dress that quickly became my new favorite!

Did anyone else get a chance to hit the sale?

one piece trend

Continuing on with summer trends, the one piece swimsuit has come back in a major way this year! And there are some seriously cute options out there. One pieces don't have to be boring and frumpy anymore! (Psssst, all these options below are under $150!)

Which one is your favorite? I want to buy them all and then book a trip to a warm beach! ;)

white on white

I used to be a tad nervous to take on the white on white trend, because I wasn't sure if I could pull it off and because I was absolutely sure I'd end up spilling something on myself. Thankfully, the spilling hasn't happened yet, and thanks to all the fabulous inspiration I find from other bloggers and pinterest, I feel like I can totally take it on! Plus, every bright white outfit I see just feel so summery! Now, I just need a little more of a tan to take it on ;)

Who else gets super inspired by other bloggers and pinterest?

weekly roundup

One of the reasons I like doing these weekly roundups is because I think everyone needs a dose of happy and funny and heartwarming regularly, because it's so easy to get sad and stressed and worried. Especially when terrible things like what is going on in Charleston right now happen. So while we #prayforCharleston and for every other terrible thing that happens, here are some things that I hope can make you smile and lift your heart a little like they did for me. (And just remember...have courage and be kind <3)

one: A judge adopted a rescued blind pug, and it's one of the sweetest things ever. Plus, it shows just how incredibly smart dogs can be.

two: Goat babies in pajamas. Do I really even need a reason for this?

three: If Disney princesses were minions. Just warning you, you will probably bust out laughing.

four: Employees who know how to make work just a little less boring. I wouldn't mind working with them!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

last summer favorites

I don't know about you guys, but I am a serious outfit repeater. I mean, when you find an outfit you love and feel awesome in, why wouldn't you wear it multiple times? So I thought I'd share some of my favorite looks from last summer that I still have on constant repeat now! (PS looking at all these pictures makes me SO excited for the end of my nursing program in July, because it means I'll finally have time to get a tan and get my hair highlighted again!! #priorities)

With outfits as awesome as these, how could I not be repeating them? ;)

summer dresses under $50

Dresses have always been my go-to for summers. They're cute and don't make you extra hot. Win, win! But I never want to spend a ton of money to fill up my closet with this summer necessity. So I went ahead and rounded up summer dresses under $50. You can thank me later ;)

Which is your favorite?

getting my stripe on

And my obsession with stripes continues! My mom actually found this dress for me a couple weeks ago when we we're at Marshall's, and I immediately fell in love. Stripes, comfy and swingy? Score! I've worn in countless times since I got it (don't wanna even tell you how many times), and I know it's going to be my go to for the rest of the summer! Especially when paired with a bright, fun color.

dress: Marshall's (similarsimilar, similar) // purse: Kate Spade (similar) // shoes: Chinese Laundry // sunnies: nich boutique (similar and only $6!)

Anyone else just gonna live in stripes this summer?

have courage and be kind

In case you didn't know, I really loved the live action Cinderella movie. (As in saw it twice in theaters, bought the music score, and not so patiently waiting for September when it comes out on DVD.) So when I found this tank at Kohl's with my absolute favorite quote from the movie on it, I just knew I had to snag it. Didn't hurt that it was on major sale ;) So I channeled my inner Cinderella when taking pictures, and surrounded myself with flowers and prettiness!

tank: Kohl's // shorts: Forever 21 (similar) // sunnies: Anthropologie (similar) // shoes: Carlos Santana (similar)

Anyone else love this quote as much as me?
