Talking about two things today: the cutest boutique and some major life changes. First, I want to introduce you to Cheeky Peach Boutique, a southern boutique with some major charm. I absolutely adore this poncho they gifted, but I also am swooning over their spring stuff — seriously. Rompers, maxis, bright colors.. all the spring goodies. These are (hopefully) the last photos with snow on the ground and I am so excited to start wearing spring clothes. I definitely recommend checking out Cheeky Peach if you’re in the market for any warmer-weather clothing.
Second, major life changes. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now (I LOVE YOU), you may know that I am now a senior at Kent State University on the verge of graduation in May. I am so excited to say that this week, I accepted a full-time position effective June 1. There’s no words to express my thankfulness and gratitude for the opportunities I have had the past year, and I am so excited to begin the next chapter of my life. Of course, a new chapter means a lot of changes: a new job (obviously), a new schedule, a new living space, a new lifestyle… my life is going to change in a way it never has before, but I am ready. I know blog posts have been sparse as I have been going through the waves of being a college senior, and I am really going to be making more of an effort to post fresh content. THANK YOU for following along with my blog — I am so excited to share the changes and this next stage of my life with you all.
I am posting this at a weird time because I have been the worst blogger EVER this week. I wanted to get this up ASAP. Today, I finished up all my papers, exams, classes, quizzes, and anything else that may be lingering before spring break. I am so excited to have next week to work and blog, prepare content, and also work on some end-of-semester projects (I know, kind of defeats the purpose of a break.. but it works). While I won’t be heading anywhere warm for spring break, I will definitely be taking advantage of all my extra time. Graduation is getting closer and closer every day!
This coat is one of my absolute favorites. I mentioned it on my Instagram before, but I would definitely order a size up if you decide to order this. I think it’s the most beautiful color and it’s definitely fit for those awkward spring days that start off really cold and warm up by noon.
Of course I had to add all my neutral basics and light denim. Mixing pink and neutrals is hands-down one of my favorite looks. While all the snow in these pictures have melted, this coat won’t be leaving my wardrobe for a long time.
Hope you’re all having an AMAZING week and have a wonderful weekend! If you’re in the Cleveland area, join me tomorrow (Friday, March 20th) at 78th Street Studios for the 3rd Fridays event! I will be attending with Makayla of Fashionably Kay to meet Rhea, a Kent State grad and new full-time business owner of her jewelry line. I am so excited and hope to see you there! Details can be found on the 78th Street Studios website.
I’ll save my stories for another day — this post is all about my favorite. skirt. ever. I know that is a bold claim to make when I have posted quite a few skirts on here, but I promise this one is the absolute best. I think it kind of speaks for itself — pink, pleated, and has a bow. It does’t get much better than that. Chicwish never disappoints in their spring fashion. I absolutely adore all their skirts. Hope you all had a great Monday — I am preparing for all my assignments/exams this week. Keep smiling! : )
Happy Saturday! Today’s post is featuring on of my new favorite pieces, a collared sweater from the Lookbook Store. When I first received it, I thought.. this may be a little to masculine for me, but after dressing it with a statement necklace and neon heels, I definitely had a change of heart. I love this sweater because it’s so loose, yet still allows you to look put-together. The pops of crystal and color pull the whole thing together. I would definitely recommend any of these pieces for any wardrobe.
I wanted to get this post up Friday, but things got a little crazy at the end of the week. Friday morning, I had the privilege of receiving the first annual Sage Project award from The Kent State Women’s Center. I was able to hear the amazing stories of nine other women who overcame struggles in their lives, but continued to thrive, grow, and better themselves. These women were mothers, daughters, sisters, students, workers, designers, researchers, activists, and so much more. I was nominated for the award by a faculty member of The Kent State School of Communication Studies for my actions after discovering I had an Internet stalker for 5 years. My experience was actually the motivation for starting my blog. I hope you all never back down in the face of those who try and hurt you. I hope you’re all having an amazing weekend.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
