My Easter OOTD

Happy Easter Sunday, everyone! I hope you are spending today with the people you love, whether you celebrate today or not. Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays because of family time and because of my outfits. One of my family’s traditions growing up is that every year my sister and I can pick out a new dress for Easter mass. This is something that I look forward to every year and have loved seeing my style change throughout the years. For some reason I always put in a little extra effort for Easter and it is so much fun. I love taking all of the family pictures and everyone in their pastels and pale springy colors. Here is this year’s outfit:  Everything is linked below!!

Eliza J Bell Sleeve Lace Dress

This dress is so much fun and such a perfect Easter dress! The pale blush pink along with the lace is so feminine and pretty. The bell sleeve and details on the skirt make for a fun twist on an otherwise simple dress. I also love the v neck so I can accessorize with different necklaces and dainty jewelry.

BP. ‘Luminate’ Open Toe Dress Sandal

I will admit these shoes are not the most comfortable things I’ve ever worn and take quite a while to break in….BUT they do match the dress perfectly and tie the whole look together seamlessly. ALSO they are on sale right now (40% OFF) so check them out if you are interested!!

Mejuri Stellar Necklace

I am a big fan of small dainty jewelry and my absolute favorite everyday necklace is this star necklace from Mejuri. Sadly, this necklace was limited edition so you can’t get this exact one but there are a ton of similar styles on their website!

Urban Outfitters Emma Sunglasses

These are my favorite sunglasses to wear with dresses. They are much more feminine than my black aviators and are a nice added accessory to any outfit.

Happy Sunday,

XOXO Anna

My Christmas Wishlist 2017

Happy Sunday, loves. Christmas is ONE day away!!! The year has come and gone in the blink of an eye yet again. Given that Christmas is SO soon I thought I would share what I am asking for this year. It’s always so hard to come up with what I want on the spot when my mother asks me weeks before. Sooooo one of my favorite *life hacks* is throughout the year whenever I see something I want I make a note in my phone. THEN, when I get asked that question from my family I have things to say! I go over the list and alter anything I need to change. This makes it SO much easier. Another thing I do to make it easier on Santa is I give website links to everything on my list (if it’s sold online) just to make sure they know exactly what I want. And I’ll do the same for you all, as always! So here we go!

CALPAK Packing CubesScreen Shot 2017-12-23 at 9.20.56 PM.png

I love traveling and anything that has a part in that is worth it in my book. I am already a huge fan of these suitcases and can’t wait to see how these help me get even more organized! Some may say this is an unnecessary addition but I have heard countless amazing reviews saying they help fit so many more things in your luggage so I’m all for it!!!

White Adidas Ultra Boosts

Screen Shot 2017-12-23 at 9.23.01 PM

Every year around this time I try and get a new pair of tennis shoes. I wear mine a lot so by this time they are usually pretty beat up. I 9/10 times go for black so I decided to take a major risk (dirt wise) and go with the beautiful crisp white! Also have gotten SUCH good reviews and seem very supportive.

Fabletics Leggings

Screen Shot 2017-12-23 at 9.28.08 PM.png

Leggings are basically what I live in in college so some fresh new leggings are a must. Fabletics has been one of my favorite discoveries this year. They are so flattering and don’t slip like some of my Lulu Lemon ones do. They are a thicker material and come in a great variety of colors. I highly recommend if you are looking for a new legging.

Monogram Pendant Necklace

Screen Shot 2017-12-23 at 9.21.54 PM.png

I think this is such a fun twist on a simple initial necklace. This oversized letter makes a statement while also keeping its basic style intact. I am so in love with the look of it and need one ASAP.

Blushed Sherpa Coat

Screen Shot 2017-12-23 at 9.22.35 PM.png

This coat is so adorable and I am in love with the color. I have had a recent obsession with coats and outerwear and this is at the top of my list. Who says winter has to be only blacks and dark greys? The pink is such a fun and unexpected twist in your normal blah overcast wintery day.

What are you asking for for Christmas this year?! I hope you all have the merriest of Christmases and get everything your heart desires. Enjoy the time with family and friends!!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul 2017

Anyone who knows me can tell you my somewhat unhealthy obsession with Nordstrom. It is my favorite place to shop, hands down. That being said, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the most exciting times of the year. If you are a Nordstrom card holder, which my family is, you get to shop the deals even EARLIER in the early access days before the actual sale starts days after. This is a HUGE advantage because a majority of the merchandise is completely gone during those early access days and it is not restocked for the public. Some of these items I bought for my upcoming sorority recruitment! Here are a few purchases I made this year during those precious early access days: 

I have found this first top to be a very flattering style for my body type. I love the ruffles and the simple blush color. And for only $45 who could pass that up?FullSizeRender.jpg-2

This item is a little more out of my comfort zone. I typically stray from velvet of any kind especially something as vibrant as this blue. I thought this would be a fun accessory leading into the fall months heading back to school in the city.

These booties were one of my sorority recruitment necessities. My black booties were getting a little worn out so I was in need of a new pair anyways. Also, just a good staple to have in any wardrobe. fullsizeoutput_432cThis dress is another sorority item. Eliza J is BY FAR my absolute favorite dress brand. Eliza has never steered me wrong when it comes to any occasion where a dress is required. I have gotten all of my Easter dresses for the past three years as well as high school graduation from the Eliza J brand. These dresses (typically in the fit and flare style) are always super flattering on my body type.FullSizeRender.jpg-1

I have been looking for a good quality, oversized, distressed denim jacket for a while now and this one immediately caught my eye. I love the fit and wash of the denim and can’t wait to rock this look with some black skinny jeans and booties in the cooler months.

 

Now this last pair of shoes actually wasn’t on the anniversary sale but I figured should be included in my haul anyway. I have been on the hunt for a pair of white sneakers but didn’t want to go for the basic Adidas superstars or white converse. I thought this perforated look was definitely different and added something extra to the already simple shoe. fullsizeoutput_432b

Spring Lookbook 2017

Happy Sunday and happy spring! As I move into my final week as a college freshman (where has the time gone?!), I wanted to take advantage of my beautiful campus and shoot my spring lookbook for you all. Fashion is so amazing and happy in the spring. You get all the pretty florals, and lighter colors while getting to add a more feminine touch to your wardrobe. The weather is just right, not too hot and sticky, but no more snow. As a college student (when all I want to wear is athleisure), it can be hard to branch out and find some more fun pieces that fit each occasion. Here are four outfits I have picked out that range from more put together and possibly girls’ night downtown to an afternoon at a baseball game!

Summer Lookbook 2016

Summer is a time for me to really express my personal style—girly, simple, and comfortable. I’m not one to wear super tight stuff that’s just honestly going to make me sweat even more in the warmer months. I try and add some personality with bright colors like this coral top, or try and work with colors that compliment my skin tone like the olive dress. These have been some of my go to summer outfits for summer 2016:
