Wine Not?

It feels good to be back.
This "mini" break I took from my blog to study for my exams this week made me realize how much I missed blogging. Most days, I love sharing bits and pieces of my life with you guys, but there are some days where I just want to wear two pieces of jewelry so I don't have to find the links for every accessory I wear - LOL. Does anyone else have a love / hate relationship with blogging? Haha!

Today I'm sharing one of three collaboration posts with TOBI. I love the cozy and oversized feel of this jacket. It literally feels like a coatigan. <-- and yes, that's a real trend - ha!

Ever since I got these Lisi Lerch earrings, I've been a sucker for the color 'wine.' I've been drawn to this Fall color as of late, and I'm not ashamed to admit that even my current nail polish is wine. 

I mean, wine not? Haha, okay. #ihadto
What are your thoughts on this color? Would you wear it?

3 Stripes, You're Out

{ scroll to the bottom to link-up with us! 
P.S. what are the odds that we're all wearing stripes? #wedidntplanthis }

When I can't decide what to wear on a Fall day, I stick to the classics.
A striped top + boyfriend shorts combo was my uniform a few weekends ago, along with a new addition to my wardrobe, all thanks to the lovely ladies over at Impressions Boutique for sending me this light olive jacket. I can already tell it's going to be a staple this Fall.

Sidenote: I was even featured for a Blogger Spotlight over on Impressions blog yesterday! I had a very stressful day yesterday, and it literally made me smile when I saw it. #blessed

Also, now that I'm done with exams, I've been thinking about my weekend plans. I want to attend the N.C. State Fair, shoot a YouTube vid, and take some blog pictures in this beautiful Fall weather.
Speaking of YouTube, what do you think my first vid should be?! Your opinions matter to me and I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)

One of my best friends has requested a little help from you gals! She's in the ADPi chapter at ECU and needs your help to win a competition on Instagram to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All of you have to do is "like" this photo!

Pumpkin Picking

My gal pal McKenzie and I spent last weekend driving around in search of a pumpkin patch.
Even though this little "pumpkin patch" was nothing more than a handful of pumpkins on a parking lot curb, we still made the most of it. We spent most of our time laughing and shamelessly posing with pumpkins bigger than our heads. Not only that, but a couple of people walking by made a few remarks at us asking if we were planning on using the pumpkins as basketballs - haha! 

Aren't days like these simply the best?

Have a great weekend!!
