Open Mind



I saw this quote on Pinterest today and I felt that it really resonated with what's been going on in my life at the moment. This week started off with a conference for students interested in business/entrepreneurship (DECA, anyone?). I had a great time networking, presenting, and meeting other students who are passionate about the same things that I am. Today, I'm headed to a student retreat sponsored by my school for 4 days.  4 days without technology, makeup, and the comfort of some of my closest friends and family. And while the students are all seniors like I am, I can say that I probably haven't talked to maybe half of them. This might just be what I'm most excited about..meeting and connecting with new people. Everyone who has gone comes back a changed person but doesn't share anything about what goes on over the few days and the thought of this is both exciting but nerve-wrecking and slightly scary. I honestly don't know what to expect but I'm going in with an open heart and an open mind and fully prepared to leave a little more connect to myself, God, and the new people I meet. 

I'll be sure to check back in on Monday when I'm back.

Instagram Lately

The 4-day weekend gave me plenty of stuff to Instagram and I'm not going to lie to you..I'm loving my feed at the moment. Although I'm not a fan of the snow..it's given me decent backdrops for my pictures! If you're not following me already don't miss out...follow me at @belle__adore

1. Did you catch my outfit post from earlier this week? I bundled up in a few layers over the weekend but I love the all white look I wore!

2. Treated myself to a manicure on Sunday! It may be freezing at the moment but I already have my upcoming California trip on my mind so of course I went for a hot pink!

3. I finally bit the bullet and started prom dress shopping. Am I the only one that doesn't really enjoy dress shopping (I blame myself..I'm super picky)? Anyways, I was totally distracted by these Chloe bags that were on display in Nordstrom.

4. Lunch with my sister on Sunday at one of my favorite spots! Of course we had to Instagram it...:)

P.S. I'll be taking over the Main Line Fashion Week Instagram this Sunday 2/21 so be sure to follow them to see my posts!

Winter White




Jeans/ Boots/ Shirt/ Sweater/ Coat/ Hat / Bag (all similar)
With the temperature being in the single digits and the wind strong enough to (almost) knock me over, it was hard to be outside for more than 10 minutes. I was lucky to get these four pictures before my eyes started tearing up from the cold. 

White is one of my absolute favorite colors, especially in the winter. I layered a striped button down with a creamy sweater and then this cozy white coat! Despite the multiple layer, this outfit reminded me a bit of spring which in my opinion should get here quicker.

I hope everyone enjoys their President's Day...I'm definitely thankful for a day off from classes. We have another storm on it's way so if you're in the northeast then brace yourself!

Winter Casual







Happy Monday everyone! Let's start this week off on the right foot!!

This is what I like to call my winter casual outfit. Maybe it's just me, but sometimes I have no desire to get dressed up in the winter because the weather makes me so lazy and I'd prefer to stay in comfy sweats. But, I can't always get my way so when I do go out, I opt for something comfortable, stylish and super easy to put together!

The weather this weekend was fabulous so I pulled out this caridgan that's a cross between a sweater/blanket. It's super comfortable, extra cozy, and provided the perfect amount of warmth (I love the length and the hood, too)! A simple tee, my newest pair of jeans, and a classic pair of converse completed this easy -going look that was perfect for shopping/errands!

What's your go-to outfit for the cold weather?

Graphic Tees: Sincerely Jules

*via


I have a trip to California coming up at the end of March and I couldn't be more excited. But, if there was a week I could be in Cali. this would be it because Julie Sarinana, one of my favorite bloggers,  opened a pop-up shop in LA! Her shop, Sincerely Jules makes the cutest graphic tees (I have one that I absolutely love!) each featuring her own handwriting! My feed was filled with pictures of her shop over the weekend and I was 100% envious of everyone who was able to go! I mean...the flower bar was the cutest thing I've ever seen!

I picked my three favorite tops from her newest arrivals but I have to say, the middle "blah blah blog' tee is my absolute favorite!!

Do you have anything from her collection? What's your favorite piece?
