Hey y'all!

Hope everyone is managing to keep warm this week! The weather has been absolutely crazy! Luckily, south Texas hasn't been too bad, just a bit rainy. I've definitely been bundling up in lots of layers. 

This weeks blog post was inspired by Julia's excitement over her acceptance into her dream school! Head on over to her blog to find out what this girl is up to. 

For those of you who do not know, the college I will be attending next year is the University of Alabama. Roll Tide Roll! This vest is going to be absolutely perfect for attending tailgates and football games.

Is it bad I've already started my count down until graduation....


PS. it's only 95 days!!!!



Southern Girl Prep Giveaway

Hey y'all!

If you are following me on instagram, you would have seen this perfectly southern girl post..

The company who created and sells this adorable tee, Southern Girl Prep, hopes to "represent the best of Southern girls who love their sweet tea, monograms, cowboy boots, pearls & bows"! Doesn't this just sound like a match made in absolute heaven?!?

But actually, could this shirt be any more perfect? The renowned LL Bean Duck boots (that seem to be back ordered for years) and American pride. It's the perfect combination for any preppy girl.

I am a firm believer that a girl can never own too many long sleeve tees. Especially navy blue colored. And especially if they have sassy little sayings. One of the best color combinations in history is definitely pink and navy. So this tee really hits a home run in my book!

So for those of you swooning over this collection as much as I was (and still am..), Southern Girl Prep and I have decided to do a little giveaway for my readers!

By completing the raffle below, you will be entered to win this southern girl prep koozie, as well as a bundle of stickers! In order to win, you must be following me on bloglovin'. To receive extra entries, all you have to do is follow me on twitter or leave a comment on this post about your favorite Southern Girl Prep item and why you want to win!




What to Wear on Valentine's Day

Dress: Target (on clearance)
Shoes: Target (similar)
Earrings: Pearl Earrings 

Hey y'all!

Is it just me or does it seem like the month of January flew by? It's already almost my absolute favorite times of the year, Valentine's Day! I'm one of those people who believes that it is not simply a day for people in relationships to give each other gifts and chocolate (although if you want to buy me something -- feel free).

Valentine's Day is a day about love! Now that love can easily be with a significant other. But for my independent women out there, we all have love in our life! So whether you go out to eat with your girlfriends or have an at home spa day, you do you and what makes you happy!

On my agenda, chocolate strawberries and Breakfast at Tiffany's..possibly a face mask and a homemade bath bomb..?? A girl can never over pamper herself!

What are your plans for Valentine's day? I'd love to hear!



Tusk in Sun

Hey y'all!

How adorable is this Lilly Pulitzer Tusk in Sun skirt?!? I am OBSESSED with it and I could not wait to wear it..even if it is still technically winter.

This skirt originally retails for around $70, but this lucky gal found it on Poshmark for $45! (PS. use code BCRCM to earn a $5 credit!)

I paired it with a white tank and some simple white Jacks and boom, outfit complete! Can't wait to wear this every single day during Spring Break!


What's your favorite Lilly Pulitzer pattern?
