Nice as Pumpkin Spice

With Halloween just around the corner, I enjoyed a splendid weekend of pumpkin picking in Chapel Hill while sipping on a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. This fall weather is simply perfect with a slight breeze and sunlight that allows me to still wear my J.Crew pastel shorts paired with a sheer black blouse, which has been a staple for my fall wardrobe lately. Suzie Kelly Jewelry sent me this darling Quinn Necklace a few weeks ago and I simply cannot find a reason to stop wearing it. I've gotten so many compliments everywhere I go due to the punchy, bright, aqua that draws attention like none other. 
In fact, you can save $10 for this necklace over on the site right now! It comes in a coral, aqua, and grey.

Last {Homecoming}



Last week was my last Homecoming Week in high school. It was also the most busiest week of my life. I had a blast dressing each day for Spirit Week (and getting extra credit for classes) and taking pictures with my friends. I know I probably bombarded Instagram with pictures everyday and I do apologize! Wednesday night we had our Powderpuff game where the girls are the football players and the boys are the cheerleaders. Seniors won. Obviously.
Friday night was our Homecoming Game vs. Pine Forest as well as the announcement of the Homecoming Queen. I had the honor of riding in a vintage Benz convertible as the Top 12 Homecoming Court in the 100th year Homecoming Parade. All in all, it was a wonderful experience that I will never forget.

Here are all the pictures from the week starting from Monday!
Monday: Nerd Day
 Tuesday: Tacky Day
Wednesday: Neon Day / Powderpuff Game
Thursday: Decade Day

Halloween Homecoming Dance



This year's Homecoming Dance was a whole lot different than last year's Masque-rave
This past weekend, I enjoyed a late Saturday night out with a few of my gals. It was a Halloween costume-party dance and what better way to sport my love for nautical than going as a sailor?

A big thank you to Aubrey Carrington for styling my retro updo! She also styled my hair for prom last year!

This is my absolute favorite shot ever.

Bring Out the Peplum

 
This week is my last Homecoming week as a senior. It's so surreal how fast time flies. #bittersweet
As President of two clubs, I have been managing to squeeze in time for a float for the Homecoming Parade this Friday and making sure everything turns out perfect. Besides dressing up each day for Spirit Week, which I will definitely post pictures probably next week, and trying to pick a dress since I won a spot on the Top 10 Homecoming Court, I am trying to get my life in order.

P.S. You probably saw a lot of pictures from my Instagram from last Saturday's Homecoming Halloween Dance, but I will definitely be posting those sometime soon!

Thanks for all the sweet comments! I want to let you know that I read each and every one of them and they really brighten my day! THANK YOU :)

Black & White

Whenever I feel like taking a break from bright, punchy color, I turn to the classic black and whites. Pairing black and white is one of my favorite combinations. It sounds very cliché, but it makes just about anything look classy and crisp. This certain outfit was a simple black-and-white that didn't require much accessorizing, due to the eye-popping sequin collar that came attached with the white blouse. It certainly adds a glamorous feel to the whole subtle look. My favorite part of this chic blouse are the vintage-inspired cuffs and the gold button that keeps it together.
