Easter Dress 2019 Roundup

When I think Easter dresses, I think girly pastels, floral patterns, and lace. Dresses that are elegant and classy, yet flowy and not super formal. To me, Easter dresses embody all things spring, hence why I love shopping for them! Today I have rounded up a bunch of the prettiest Easter dresses I can find - enjoy!



My family keeps it pretty casual on Easter, so I think I'm going to wear this floral tee and the pants I featured here (talk about a throwback)! For shoes, I just discovered these simple sandals and I think I might have to purchase them.

12 Things Vol. 12


Happy Friday! This week actually went by pretty quickly... but don't get me wrong, I am so happy for the weekend. My homework load has been pretty light because the school year is beginning to wind down, but my plate has been filled with so many other activities like soccer and refereeing. Since it's nice out now, my friends and I also go walk to get food after school sometimes - this week we got froyo!

1. Lattes have become my new obsession recently. I always get a caramel latte with almond milk, and I've been drinking them everywhere I go lately... it's a problem.

2. I have yet to order a banquet dress but I found this one and I'm leaning towards getting it!

3. I am not at all the type of girl to spend money on things like nails, spray tans, etc... but lately I've had the biggest desire to go get my nails done and I don't know why. I'm compensating by using this gel topcoat when I paint my nails - it makes them look so smooth and shiny.

4. I thought this article about influencers doing fake sponsored posts was really interesting and worth the read.

5. A new shake place opened near me and I am dying to go!!

6. Speaking of dying to do things, I am so so close to getting my driver's license and I cannot wait.

7. I added a bunch of items to my Poshmark recently - check them out here!

8. I made these lemon blueberry cheesecake bars the other day and they were so good.

9. I filmed and edited a YouTube video earlier this week but it got blocked because of copyrighted music! Now I have to find all new music and re-upload it (and finding music is the hardest part lol).

10. I love any excuse for a celebration, so I'm super excited for Easter! I keep researching recipes but I have no idea what to make. I think my mom and I are doing a coconut bundt cake for dessert, though!

11. It got to 80 degrees here yesterday and that makes me oh so happy because I am beyond ready for summer! We still have quite a ways to go but I'm counting down the days :)

12. I updated my blog post on Rachel Green's outfits with new clothing items that are in stock! It's one of my most popular posts, and you should definitely check it out.

Have a good weekend!!

Trend Alert: Seeing Snakeskin

Snakeskin has been everywhere recently. I'm sure you've seen it all over Instagram, in magazines, at boutiques... everywhere. At first I was not a fan of it, but it's grown on me tremendously! Today I'm sharing a few of my favorite snakeskin-printed items that I've seen around the internet lately - happy shopping!



I currently have this bikini and this bikini in my shopping cart. I obviously don't need both, but I can't decide which one! I also really want these pants!

Which of these items is your favorite? Are you a fan of snakeskin?

Life Lately Vol. 50

This week has been the longest week of my life. I don't know why, but it's dragged on and on... I'm so thankful it's coming to an end. My job as a referee has started back up, I have AP World History review sessions every day after school, teachers are stockpiling quizzes on me, and I'm having to schedule my classes for next year - and all of this has left me feeling exhausted.

All in all, it's been a great past few weeks, though. Between Spring Break travel, new restaurants, and lots of soccer, I really don't have that much to complain about!

All the trees and flowers in my neighborhood are blooming, which makes me so happy because it means it's the beginning of spring! The weather here has been so nice and I love just sitting outside with some lemonade and soaking in the sunshine. Also, I shot this picture in collaboration with American Eagle... so that's pretty cool :)

A Long Weekend In Durango, Colorado

Welcome to the weirdest, most spontaneous trip I've ever been on.

If you've been reading my most recent posts, you'll know that I spent the first half of spring break touring the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. We got back from that trip on Wednesday night, and I was supposed to fly out to Denver that night with my dad and sister so we could go skiing at Breckenridge. Our flight got cancelled due to snowstorms, however, so we had to resort to plan B. I don't remember what plan B was (I think it involved us driving and leaving at 4 am on Thursday) but it failed. So did plans C, D, E, F, and G.

And then came along plan H.

Travel Guide To Fayetteville & Fort Smith | Where To Eat, Shop, & Explore in Arkansas

If you've been following me on Instagram, you'll know that I spent a few days last week in Arkansas, exploring Fayetteville and touring the University of Arkansas. I had so much fun and I discovered so many good places to eat, shop, and explore, so today I'm coming at you with a fun-filled travel guide to Fort Smith and Fayetteville. The drive from Dallas is pretty long, so we drove to Fort Smith the first day, spent the night there, drove up to Fayetteville and stayed for two nights, then spent another night in Fort Smith before heading back to Dallas. Our trip was jam-packed with so many fun adventures, and I can't wait to share them with you!

Fort Smith Coffee Co // This place!!! The coffee is so good, but I really love their pastries (my mom and I split a delicious chocolate chip scone) and they also have the cutest atmosphere.
