Sporty Chanel

Starting off a Monday knowing that I'll have to get through four days, not five, until the weekend always puts me in the weirdest form of happy. Does anyone else feel that way? 

My family and I have a mini getaway planned for the weekend, and I am beyond thrilled. I'm also getting mixed feelings about the fact that we're about to head into July... 
UM. Why are these summer days flying by so fast?!?

Lately, I've been wearing sneakers more often to switch up my shoe game a little. These sneakers are seriously worth the $25. I decided to pair it with this new denim dress and a baseball cap for a coffee run in Raleigh the other week. I love that it gives the look a more casual and sporty chic feel to it.

A little sidenote about these earrings that I'm wearing.
I used to wear tassel bracelets interchangeably last summer, so I have a drawer full of tassels that I haven't touched since. When I noticed that these tassel pieces were the exact same, I immediately switched them out and tried new color combinations.
Now, it's just a matter of purchasing more of the same color tassels for earrings. #firstworldproblems

New Beginnings

This is a week of new beginnings.
New house, new room, new class, new schedule.
I'm slowly and surely getting back into my regular routine with my internship three times a week, with a little bit of gym time, and still free time to socialize and catch up with my best gal pals (AKA housemates) in our new place. If you saw Snapchat (bygracelee) yesterday, you probably saw us having a nervous wreck and trying to figure out where we should put our new furniture. We were originally eating / sitting on a throw with pillows as our "couch" for a few days, but I'm happy to announce those days are over, ha!

Now onto the outfit...
I wore this dress while Father's Day shopping a few days ago with my mom and sister. This dress is very comfortable and easy to move around in. I love how it fits me like a midi dress because I'm 5"2, and all maxi dresses are either too long or... too long. #shortgirlprobs
