It's All White

Since my family headed down to Myrtle Beach, SC for the last time this summer a few weeks ago, I really wanted to pack an all-white look for a sunset shoot. I've seen many people sport the all-white look and it's always been a trend that I've been wanting to tackle. Though these photos are kind of deceiving, I really love how this off-white satin peplum top pairs perfectly with these white skinnies. I added this black necklace from Trendy Happens to offset the look a little. 

Also, I don't need a holiday to tell me when I can or can't wear white. #sucharebel #LaborDaysaywhat?
Have a great long day weekend!

So tell me, do you abide by the "rule" or is it alright to wear white? 
(unintentional rhyming -- but hey, it works)

Work Hard, Grey Hard

I hate not blogging.
Sorry for the week long absence. I'm still trying to adjust to college and my schedule has been craaazy.
I've received a lot of emails lately asking about my "MIA" for the week and I sincerely do apologize! Also, thank you so much for those who still read and stick around with my blog. That means so much to me, and I'll do my best to keep posting!

I remember purchasing this leather sleeve tee from Forever 21 a while back and instantly falling in love with it. It's edgy and satisfies my love for leather. Also, every once in awhile, I like to resort back to simple looks, such as a pair of denim cut-offs, sneaker wedges, and my hair in a braid. A huge thank you to Sew Southern Designs for giving me this monogram tumbler! It has been a lifesaver for me this summer. You can order yours today over on her FB page! 

P.S. My school's football season is kicking off tonight: UNC vs. USC tonight @ 6 pm.
GO Tarheels!

Rule of Peplum

I hear the line 'when all else fails, wear red,' used more often than not. When all else fails (for me), I opt for a black and white combo. It's simple, yet elegant at the same time. You can do no wrong with a black and white clean and polished look. Especially on a rainy day. Which, by the way, has been too frequent in Fayetteville this summer. 

P.S. It's Friday and I couldn't be any happier. Have a great weekend!

To The Max

I used to think you had to be tall or have long legs in order to pull off a maxi dress. I was nearly certain that I would never be able to wear one because of my height (5"2). But after experimenting, I realized that long maxis (especially black) make short girls (like me) look instantly tall. Who would've known?
Accessorizing a maxi is always fun. Whether you choose a skinny belt or a wide belt, a long statement necklace, or bold statement earrings, they are certainly the perfect look to wear through these late summer nights.

P.S. I'm undergoing a blog change and if there's any weird settings, that's why!

Lime Time

To conclude our summer, my family and I headed to Myrtle Beach, SC for a final farewell to the beach. For one of the nights, my sister and I got dressed up in maxis and sunnies to watch the sunrise and splash around in the ocean. It was such a gorgeous view. I'd do anything to relive little moments like those again...and again.

P.S. I'm already moved into my college dorm at UNC-Chapel Hill. It was crazy, it was chaotic,'s done. #hellocollegelife
