Mod&Soul Ruffle Sweater

If you remember from one of my recent blog posts, I talked about how I’m writing the blog for a local company here in Richmond. I’m so excited to be a part of their team and to share tons of future content with you guys! I post new content on their site every Tuesday and Thursday so if you’re interested in reading it, you can check it out here!

The owner of the boutique and I got together to photograph some new products for their website and social media sites last week. The pictures are too fun not to share with you so I’m posting a few today from one of the looks that we shot!

This gorgeous marigold top is one of my favorites from Mod&Soul's new arrivals! I tend to avoid yellow at all costs but something about this mustard-y shade just drew me in!

Tops/ Skirt/ Boots/ Sunnies (similar)

What do you guys think about this color? Would you wear it for Fall?

October POPSUGAR Must Have Box

My favorite part about subscription boxes is not knowing what you're going to get each month. I've talked about the POPSUGAR Must Have boxes on the blog before, and how much I love what comes inside, but each month I'm more and more impressed by the contents of the box! 

The October Must Have box is definitely my favorite out of all the ones I've received! I can see myself using all of the products in here - I've already tried a few and love them!

If you're interested in subscribing to the POPSUGAR Must Have boxes, use the code 'SHOP5' for $5 off your first box! 

Now on to the products...!

  1. My favorite item from this month's box has to be this mug! I love the 'diner' style and the cute typography and I know I will be getting good use out of it! 
  2. It was so fitting that this box came with a hot chocolate mix! It smells so yummy - I can't wait to try it but I might have to save it for when I'm home for the holidays! 
  3. This shower oil is a dream....it smells SO good! I already used it as a cleanser but I can only imagine how nice it would be as a bubble bath! It left my skin feeling super soft and smelling so good! 
  4. The founder of POPSUGAR, Lisa Sugar, wrote a book called 'Power Your Happy' which was included in this box! I can't wait to learn all about how she started the company. 
  5. I'm always down to trying new beauty products and I was excited to see this Revlon eyeliner inside! I admire those girls who can do the perfect winged liner so I'm going to have to watch some youtube tutorials before I use it! 
  6. This umbrella was such a surprise to see in the box! Its in the classic Henri Bendel brown and white colors and has the cutest pink print on it!

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday! I had such a relaxing, productive weekend and I'm ready to take another week! I have quite a bit on my agenda this week but its nothing a little lot of coffee can't help with! This week I get my little for AKPsi and I'm so excited to surprise her!  Also, Halloween is this weekend and I'm still at a loss of what to be...any suggestions?

1. I'm so excited to say that I'm the new content creator for a local Richmond boutique, Mod & Soul. I did this  post with them a few months ago and I'm happy I get to work with them again in a bigger way! Basically, I'll be writing the posts on their blog as well as taking pictures and promoting the brand on my social media accounts!

2. My love for Glossier keeps growing!! I just received the  Generation G lipstick and the concealer and I'm already obsessed with both of them! I'll be sure to do a more detailed review on the blog soon! You're missing out if you haven't tried out the brand so here's  20% off your first purchase...you're welcome:)

3. PJ from Soulfully Southern is coming to Richmond is just a few weeks!! She's applying to the University of Richmond and she wanted to stay with me to tour the school again. I'm so excited to show her around my favorite spots on campus and in the city! See you soon PJ!

4. Can we all just agree that Carly and Julia are the ultimate friends goals? I've been obsessed with Carly's youtube channel and this video just made me so happy!!

Peplum Look for Fall

I've talked about SheIn on the  blog before and I still definitely recommend checking out their site if you are looking for affordable, trendy clothes. They were kind enough to send me this  cute peplum top and I loved styling it for this gorgeous fall weather. I plan on wearing this again in the summer with a pair of white jeans and wedges but for now, I kept things simple for a causal morning out with some fun flats and my favorite  J.Crew field jacket

What's your favorite piece of fall clothing?

Fall with All for Color

Dressing for this time of the year can be somewhat of a challenge, especially when you're a student trying to dress for classes, meeting, dinners, etc, all in one day. It's so chilly in the morning when I leave my room but by the afternoon I always regret the sweater or jacket I put on. 

My ideal outfit for a day like this is  jeans, a  simple top (striped, of course), and  flats. I'll layer a cozy scarf and  vest if it's chilly in the morning but I'll take it off as soon as the temp goes up. 
I just got these jeans from Madewell and I'm in love! The quality is so good and I think the high rise skinny style is super flattering. 
This top from  All For Color has been on repeat lately! It is so soft and the fact that its blue and white stripes makes it 100x better!

Top  c/o,  Jeans,  Flats,  Vest
Scarf from a boutique but  this one  is very similar

Falling for Plaid

I have been home for fall break since Thursday night and it has been exactly what I needed...chill time at home with my family! The last three weeks of school have been so crazy busy and this break was the only thing getting me through! I didn't have anything planned for the long weekend except tons of baking, shopping, and family time. The weather at home right now is seriously the ideal perfect fall weather and I was so excited to pull out all my favorite fall looks. Tomorrow I'm headed to brunch with my besties from home and then we're going to an apple orchard so expect some pictures:)

I wore this look on Friday to grab a coffee, visit the store I worked at over the summer, and do some shopping! This might be my favorite dress, especially for this time of year, and I got so many compliments that day! This specific dress is unfortunately unavailable but I've linked some very similar ones, and the rest of my outfit, in the widget below! 

I've gotten a few questions lately on how I curl my hair. This  is the curling iron I use!

October Wishlist

1, 2, 3, 4, 5
6, 7, 8, 9, 10
11, 12, 13, 14

Can someone tell me how it's the first day of October already?! This semester is flying by and I can't believe I'm already going home for fall break in a few days!

It's also finally starting to feel like fall in Richmond and campus looks its best when all the trees around the lake start changing colors! I have been so anxious to buy some new fall pieces so I put together this post with some pieces that I've had my eyes on! 

Happy shopping!
