Now trending: Bucket bags

Now trending: bucket bags
I have been loving bucket bags lately! I want to invest in a new fun bag and I think a mini bucket bag is perfect for summertime. I love that they can fit a lot even though they are still small. That mini Marc by Marc Jacobs bag might be my favorite ;)
These next few weeks are packed with exams, final projects and papers as school winds down. It’s hard to believe that I’ll be graduating in less than a month! Time surely has flown by. I just have a few more days of classes and then all I have to worry about is what dress to wear to graduation!

J Crew Factory dress (old, similar), Lilly Pulitzer clutch, Ray Ban sunglasses, Sam Edelman sandals, David Yurman bracelet

Can you feel spring right around the corner?? I definitely can here in Florida and I am so happy about that. It was a cold winter in Gainesville (not as cold as the north, but still) and the sun is finally back! I wore this look to lunch one day with my boyfriend out by the beach. I love how casual maxis feel but can still look dressed-up.

I also brought along my new Lilly clutch that I’m obsessed with! You might not be able to see in the pictures, but it says “I’d rather be at the beach”, which couldn’t be any more true. It’s perfect for the summer.

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Valentine's Day Gift Guide
I can’t believe we’re already half-way through February! I feel like time is flying by, and it’s my last semester of college so part of me is very bittersweet about that.
I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s day. But I’ve also never been a hater. It’s just always just been another day of the year for me, except for the tinge of excitement for Feb. 15 when all that candy goes on sale.
With that being said, my mom’s birthday and my birthday are both in February. So, I definitely get in the spirit for thinking of gift ideas for giving and receiving (wink wink).
I think Valentine’s day is a great way to surprise someone you care about with a little gift, so I compiled this list of ideas for you! I’m pretty positive my mom and sister would love everything on this gift guide.
Not sure what to get the lady in your life? You definitely can’t go wrong with a beauty-related item like a nice nail polish or candle.
What are you giving your significant other (or your mom, aunt, sister, cousin, neighbor??) this Valentine’s day? Don’t forget the chocolates!

 J Crew sweater (no longer available), J Brand jeans (similar), Proenza Schouler bag, Target shoes (no longer available), Thierry Lasry sunglasses

Lately, I’ve been loving black on black. It’s simple, easy and always chic. I wore my favorite thick knit sweater from J Crew on top and added a pop of pink with my purse (and new lipstick!). I got these Thierry Lasry sunglasses for Christmas and I am in love with them so much. I love that they add a little bit of glam to anything I’m wearing, without any effort.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I did my very first color run 5k with my friend and it was so fun! I am not a runner by any means but it was such a gorgeous day to just be outside. We’ve been having great weather here in Gainesville, so Sunday was spent outside with friends, too!
