Off The Shoulder OOTD

Hi friends! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the Spring weather! Today I wanted to share an outfit that I have been loving. This top was kindly sent to me by Stay Warm In Style and I'm loving it! It's super flowy and can be paired with just about anything. I decided to try out the hair scarf trend that I have seen so many of my favorite fashion influencers rocking and I'm obsessed. I picked this one up at Wal-mart under $15.00! (Score)

7 Vacation Essentials For Your Next Beach Trip

I recently just booked a vacation to Destin, Florida coming up in a few weeks and to say that I'm excited is an understatement! It's been a while since I've dipped my toes into the ocean and the stress of this past semester has got me craving some beach therapy. 
Today I wanted to share with you ladies my top 7 essentials to pack for a trip to the beach! These are personal must- haves for me and I hope this will be helpful for you! 

1. Swimsuit & Cover-up

This one is a no-brainer! Buying a new swimsuit is one of my favorite things to shop for before going on vacation. I have been LOVING the one piece trend and I found this super cute one at Target under $50.00. Target has so man cute options and I highly recommend taking a look there before spending big bucks somewhere else! 

2. Sunscreen, Sunscreen & More Sunscreen! 

You will go through more sunscreen on a week long beach vacation than you think! And if you're anything like me, you will burn super easily and spend the rest of the week red nosed if you're not careful. I like to start out with a SPF 30 and work my way down as the week goes on. 

3. A Beach Hat 

This is my first ever "beach hat" and I am in love! I picked this one up at Academy for around $13.00 and I can't wait to wear it! It's perfect for keeping the sun out of your eyes and it's super cute too ;) 

4. Beach Towel 

Locating your towel from the water can sometimes be a hassle (Did someone steal it? Did someone move it without telling me?) So picking one that stands out from the crowd is a must for me. This one is super adorable and i got it at Walmart for (Price) 

5. Sandals 

Affordable sandals that you don't mind taking to the beach? Check, check, check. 

6. Summer Reads 

I think my favorite thing about the beach is getting my nose into a good book. There's just something about being surrounded by the ocean as you read that leaves a feeling like no other! Here's a few of my summer reading picks. 

7.  Beach Bag 

To be able to carry all these beach essentials with you, you will need something to put them in! There are so many cute and affordable beach bag options out there. I recently seen some super adorable ones at walmart under $20.00! 
This one I am using this year is a monogrammed bag my Aunt bought for me last year. It has plenty of room and I am obsessed with the color and scalloped detail! 
Here's a link to the Walmart bag!

I hope these essentials were helpful to ya'll! Be on the lookout for upcoming posts and videos of my trip coming up soon! 
Are you going on a beach vacation this year? If so, what are your go-to essentials? 

Much love!

Walmart Haul (Shocked At What I Found!)

Hey ya'll! I haven't been very active on my blog and Instagram lately because life has been crazy hectic! I'm finishing up my final weeks of school before Summer and I can honestly say I will be happy when I'm finished. I enjoy school but there are times when it can be draining - I'm sure my fellow 20 somethings can relate! 
I will be headed down South to Florida in two weeks for a vacation with my boyfriend and my family. I decided to check out Walmart to see what I could find for my trip and I was shocked! They have totally "upped their game" and I'm not mad about it. They started carrying a new brand called "Time and Tru" and the styles are to die for (and insanely cheap). 
Here are a few of my finds! 

 The BEST lashes and bronzer! 

The most adorable two piece set! It is so flattering on and only $16.92! 
Shop here.

These earrings and this hair tie are so trendy right now and I can't wait to style them at the beach! I couldn't find the link but you should be able to find them in the accessories section at your local Walmart.

How cute is this beach towel? They have so many to choose from! I have been obsessed with yellow lately. 

I think what I was the most impressed with were the sandals! The bottoms ones look just like Birkenstocks- I have even had someone compliment them thinking they were Birkenstocks but they were only $15.00 (you can't beat that!) 
I have worn these multiple times and I am starting to see a little bit of wear and tear already but that was to be expected. My new favorite sandals for sure! I actually couldn't find the link to them so check your local Walmart and I will link a similar pair below!

I hope you found this helpful! Has anyone else noticed Walmart's newest cute additions? 

Much love,

My Favorite Online Boutiques + OOTD

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was spent with my family and my boyfriend celebrating his birthday. It was a well spent weekend but now it's back to reality. I currently just booked a vacation for this summer and I couldn't be more excited - but that means it's time to get bathing suit body ready! Anybody else?

Today I wanted to share with ya'll some of my favorite online boutiques along with an OOTD. For the past two years I have been a boutique-aholic. It's where I buy the majority of my clothes. I mostly like buying from them because I love to support small businesses, and the clothes they offer tend to be a lot more affordable and modest than buying from a department store.
This outfit I'm wearing today is from my favorite boutique at the moment, Dress Up Boutique . They're my favorite because they are constantly getting new arrivals, which means a lot of their stuff goes on sale for SO CHEAP! I recently worked with them and I received so many items for under $60.00! I was so impressed. This top is from them and I got it or around $12.00 . I highly recommend that you check them out and don't forget to look at that clearance section.

Another favorite of mine is My Sisters Closet Boutique . This is where I got my Easter dress for this year and they have some of the cutest dresses I have ever seen! It's definitely my go-to for a good modest dress.

Last but not least, another favorite of mine is Meagan's Unique Boutique. Meagan is so sweet and she has some super cute clothes at an affordable price! Everything I ever got from there was amazing quality and have become some of my staple items in my wardrobe.
You can follow her Instagram here!

Thanks for reading! What's your favorite online boutique?

Beachy Boho Waves Tutorial Using Extensions

One of my favorite ways to wear my hair is in messy waves. It's super easy, quick, and I love the effortless look that it gives. I also have always loved adding a little bit of extra length and volume to my hair, so I like adding a few wefts of my favorite extensions, Barely Xtensions to my hair. 

After adding my extensions, I like to lightly curl my hair with a 1 inch curing iron, focusing on the ends of my hair. 

Then I like to take my fingers and mess it up! Don't be afraid - this step is crucial for that boho look! 

When I'm done, I like to finish it off by spraying some light hold hairspray. Check out my favorite here!

What hairstyle have you been loving lately? I'm always up to try new looks!
