Wishing For Warmer Days


Yesterday was a little teaser for Spring.
The weather was 75 degrees and it instantly reminded me of the warmer days that are yet to come in the next few weeks (hopefully!) or so. Spring Break starts this Friday for me and it is never too soon to be shopping for beach essentials. I always find it around this time of year that time just flies. Before you know it, it'll be finals week and summer vacation will sneak up on you!

So what better way to wish for warmer days than to swoon over these adorable warm weather essentials? 
I'm also not looking forward to losing that hour on Sunday... 

P.S. there's still time to enter the Tory Burch tote giveaway!! Have you entered??

White AND Black and Blue


HAHA - have you guys heard about this trending topic on the #whiteandgold and #blackandblue dress?
I couldn't resist throwing it in there for good measure, ha. Anyways...

This week has been a toughie for me.
I've been coughing up a lung and looking like Rudolph with a red nose for the past few days. I also had an exam yesterday and now I have a couple of assignments to get through until Spring Break starts this Friday.

Tomorrow, my gal pal and I are headed to the movies to watch Fifty Shades of Grey... have you guys watched it yet?! Good or bad?? 
Let me know what you think so I have an idea of what I'm about to get myself into... ha!

P.S. Ellie Goulding's 'Love Me Like You Do' on the Fifty Shades soundtrack has been my JAM as of late. The soundtrack is so so good! If you haven't heard it yet, you need to!

Vest Friends


It goes without saying that this year's snow day(s) trumps last year's snow day.
Sure, we all sledded down the huge hill that led to the Dean Smith Center (or Dean Dome, as we call it) in Chapel Hill, but this year... it was like we woke up in a winter wonderland. I have to admit, I could stare at snow falling for hours and hours. It's one of the prettiest things to encounter. Casey and I had our fair share of fun as we threw snowballs at each other and watched the pretty snow fall from our windows. 

Just a couple of vest friends having a good ol' laugh in the snow. Ha.

Snow Faux Sho


Last week, we had a couple of days off due to the snowpocalypse that hit NC.
Classes were cancelled, sleds were out, snowgear on... let's just say, we made the most of our snow day. I wore this look for a snow day brunch with my girls and then we headed outdoors for some sledding (on ice!) and then came in for some hot lattes and movies.

There's nothing like spending a snow day with your favorite people.

Also, thank you all for the wonderful comments you left me on social media and yesterday's blog post! I read them all, and couldn't help but smile at each and every one of them. Thanks for making my birthday so special :)
