Spring Break Wishlist

With March around the corner and spring weather making an appearance, all I can think about is the beach! Luckily for me I will be there in 3 short weeks! While I might be ready for fun in the sun, my wardrobe certainly is not. So I have compiled my favorite spring-break must-haves!

Bathing Suits

Obviously I love the palm print and am so excited it is sticking around for another year! This time I am definitely getting in on the trend!

Red // Anthropology

One piece // Anthropology

High Waisted // ModCloth

Halter Palm // Cupshe

Sandals

I have included all of the essentials here: tassel, lace up, jelly and classic (Tory Burch duh).

Fringe // Target

Red Lace-up // ASOS

Jelly // Forever21

Tory Burch // Nordstrom

Cover-ups

I don’t know about you but I am crazy about cover-ups! I might have one to match each of my bathing suits! I love the off the shoulder ones especially and will definitely be picking one up for my trip!

Lace // Nordstrom

White OTS // ASOS

Blue // ASOS

Tassel // Anthropology

Is anyone else going on spring break this year? What are your beach must haves?

Screen Shot 2015-11-18 at 8.41.39 PM

Here’s the second installment of my weekly gift guide! I have been wracking my brain trying to think of the perfect gifts for my boyfriend, dad and brother. Annnnnddddd still haven’t found them yet. BUT in the meantime I have compiled the best list of stocking stuffers that I’m absolutely sure they love. I thought y’all would agree! Best of all they are all still under $50! Remember #brokecollegegirl

1. Socks-J.Crew

So A (my boyfriend) is obsessed with printed socks. In my mom’s words, “What? Is he a thirteen year old girl?” Nevertheless he gets more excited about opening a box of socks than anything else. So if you have a man in your life that is at least 1/10 as excited as my boyfriend about socks than you need to pick him up a pair of these beauties.

2. Bowtie-Shop Local KY

A and my brother both have an impressive bowtie collection and when I saw this one I just knew it would make the perfect addition. Of course this particular one only really applies to Kentucky lovers. There’s quite a few options out there but of course this one caught my eye. (CATS by 90)

3. Yeti Colster- Field and Stream

I actually have already given this to A and my dad. They have l-o-v-e-d it and I have been so impressed, I want to tell everyone to go get one immediately! I think I’ll be picking up the rambler next!

4. “Merica-Rowdy Gentleman 

Patriotic. Fuzzy ball. ‘Nuff said?

5. Flask- Etsy

For your legal-aged men here’s fancy flask. You can customize however you want and even have your man’s favorite liquor logo lasered on the front. I ordered one with the Captain Morgan label a few years ago and A was obsessed. Best part? Only $11!

Gift Guide: For the Roomies

Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 6.43.00 PM

Here’s a scary thought: There’s only 6 more Mondays until Christmas! As much as I advocate celebrating one holiday at a time (right now that would be Thanksgiving), I can’t deny the allure and practicalness of Christmas shopping early! In that spirit I have decided to do a gift guide a week until Christmas! All of my gifts will be under $50 because I am on that #brokecollegegirl budget and I feel like many of you are too! So many of my finds are going to be STEALS and you should get them FAST because I know they are going to be gone quick! Without further ado here is my gift ideas for my friends/roommates (who have way too expensive taste 😉 )

1. The Blanket Scarf- Simple Addiction

You know that thing that everyone has been wearing? Well don’t let your friends get left behind in the trend-following dust. I’ve found the perfect scarf (already have 2) at a great price! At $13 you might just have to buy one for yourself too (I know I did).

2. Kate Spade Necklace- Nordstrom

Nordstrom is having some like awesome fall sale and I am just going to roll with it. This necklace comes in four different colors including tortoise and would be the perfect piece of dazzling neck candy (yes neck candy). Plus who wouldn’t love a little Kate Spade in their life?

3. Kendra Scott Earrings- Nordstrom

Seriously the Nordstrom sale is awesome and if you have a little bit of time you should really check out all the great deals they have! These Kendra Scott earrings are mesmerizing and I know I’m putting them on my christmas list! I just know that some of my friends would swoon over these too.

4. Tommy Bahama Watch- MyHabit

So I recently discovered this website called myhabit.com. It’s a website that has crazy markdowns on designer items. Apparently Access Hollywood talks about it? Anyways that’s how my mom became hooked on it and now she’s got me addicted to it too! Watches are such a statement nowadays and my roomies would love to have this one gracing their arm.

5. The Happy Planner- Me and My Big Ideas

Absolutely OBSESSED with this planner. I actually originally saw it at Michaels and have been researching about it all day. The website I listed has a much greater selection and also carries all the accessories for it (who knew planners could have accessories?). Anyways I think this my next move planner-wise (sorry Lilly). I know many of my friends are off to grad-school next year and organization is going to be key to their success and sanity. Plus there’s a ton of cute stickers, flags and paperclips that just makes this the cutest and most useful gift.
