Night In: Valentine's Day {{Collab}}

I'm super excited about this collaboration with Brianna@ginghamandglam, she has a going out/day time look on her blog! Check it out if you have a life unlike me. If you don't have a life then this post is perfect for you because chances are you're reading it while you're alone in your room on Valentine's Day.

I will probably be spending my evening a lot like this. Leggings, over sized t-shirts, and pink bralettes! Activities will include eating lots of candy, watching lots of The Hills and One Tree Hill, and maybe writing some last minute Valentines.

love traumas... sounds about right.

I am looking a white chocolate popcorn here... how good does this look?

Writing Valentine's to my partner in crime for this post.

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays! Not because I ever have Valentines but because it's full of hearts and pink and candy and flowers. Could a holiday be any more girly? I think not. After work yesterday I went window shopping with a friend and we ended up finding the cutest skirts for Valentine's Day! The only logical thing to do when we saw them was to buy them and take themed pictures in them for a Valentine's Day post.

I wanted to go all out. That meant balloons, lollipops, conversation hearts and my friend Hannah taking pictures with her professional camera. It was so worth it! (**beware there were just so many cute pictures I couldn't choose**)

The balloons were my favorite thing about all the pictures! Can you even take Valentine's pictures without balloons? I am in LOVE with my skirt. It was marked down for $20 at Forever 21 but the zipper was completely broken so after some negotiating my friend, Emily, and I got them to give it to me for only $10!! It was just meant to be. I plan to wear this exact outfit on Valentine's Day. I think it just screams Valentine's Day. 

Emily's look was SO cute! She's lucky enough to be able to shop in the kids section of stores. She scored this skirt in the kids section of Forever 21. She totally made it her own and made it edgier with  a black quilted crop top and black booties.

Could Emily get any cuter? We decided to hop into some pictures together and I couldn't be more obsessed with how they turned out.

kisses ;*

What will you be wearing on Valentine's Day??

p.s. Stay tuned this week for more Valentine's Day themed posts, I can't get enough of it!

Instagram Lately

So, I suppose it's pretty noticeable that I haven't blogged in quite some time. Yesterday was my first post for about three months! School got busier, then Christmas came and then second semester started. I have finally settled back into my routine so let the blogging commence!

I've tried to keep up with my Instagram and I think I've been doing pretty okay. Here's what I've been up to on my Instagram lately.

My first day at my internship at Bella Bridesmaid... so much fun!

One of my favorite dresses in the store!

Slightly (read: majorly) obsessed with these initial earrings. 

Bid Day 2015! 

Hello! It was like 65 degrees on the first day of February... too bad the groundhog says six more weeks of winter.

This latte is from a local coffee shop, Black Tap, it's brown sugar flavored and the most amazing latte I have ever had. Perfect for getting me through long days.

I actually think I'm addicted to Instagram. I posted four pictures yesterday... FOUR. Sorry to my followers for blowing up your feed (insert embarrassed emoji face.) Follow me on Instagram and Twitter to see what I'm up to!

What are y'all looking forward to this week?

Paper Crown Bridesmaids

If you follow me on Instagram you probably know that I am currently interning at a bridesmaids shop, Bella Bridesmaids! It's so fun and I love it very much. What I was most excited for in my first week there was a new shipment of dresses we were getting, Paper Crown Bridesmaids. Paper Crown is one of Lauren Conrad's clothing companies (!!!!) and she created the bridesmaid's line with her BFF Maura McManus. Fortunately, we got them in while I was working so I got the first look!

They are the most beautiful colors and amazing fabrics! I like that they all look the same but also very different. This way the bridesmaid's can all look uniform while wearing a dress that is best for her body! Way to go LC and Maura. 

Luckily, it was a slower day with appointments so we decided to put a few to see what we think. Picking one out to try on was a hard decision. Our boss pulled her iPhone out and took a picture to post to Instagram announcing the new line was in! I think one of my favorites is the pale pink high neck (Natalie is wearing it below!) it's so classy.

Two of my favorite people Natalie (she's an artist!) and Hannah!

I was probably watching like One Tree Hill or Grey's Anatomy when I saw a text from the other intern. She sent me a screenshot of Paper Crown reposting Bella Bridesmaids Charleston's picture!! I kid you not, I started hyperventilating in my dorm room telling all my roommates the exciting news! I mean Lauren Conrad herself probably saw this picture. BIG DEAL. 

We totally have Natalie to thank for the paper crowns on our head! She knew what she was doing. 

I am obsessed with these pictures of Lauren and her friends in Paper Crown Bridesmaids:

Which is your favorite dress from the collection?
