Save vs. Splurge

What girl doesn't love a designer bag?  I'll admit I do!  I love brands like Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Rebecca Minkoff, etc.  Although designer brands are nice to have, they can be very pricey.  Hopefully this post will help you find the perfect purse for less!

Elephantastic Weekend
















  Elephant Tank {similar here & here} //  Denim Capris {similar} // Grey Sweater {similar here}

     Hello lovelies!  I truly have had a elephantastic weekend!  Today's outfit is one of my favorites because it's so comfy.  I just love putting new outfits together and feeling confident in my outfit!  Sometimes though I like to be comfy and casual.  This outfit is perfect for just that!  One of the main reasons I love this tank is because it has an elephant on it.

Style Steal: Taylor Swift

As much as I love Taylor Swift's music, I also love her style.  She has a chic yet classic style and that is what I love most about it.  I hope you enjoy the Taylor Swift outfits I will be sharing!

Essentials For a {LONG} Road Trip





Hi everyone!

Today, I will be sharing my essentials for those looong, boring road trips.  At first road trips are fun, but after 3 hours the question "Are we there yet?" keeps coming to mind.  Below are some very important essentials of mine.  Enjoy!



1. Books & Magazines - I love books and magazines for long car rides!  It makes the time go by.  You can get caught up on the latest fashion, decide what new desserts you would like to try, and dream of your future home!

2. Notebook / Drawing Pad - Whenever I go on a road trip I always bring a notebook and a drawing pad!  They're both very important essentials for me. I love to draw & doodle.  I find that it passes the time and it's very relaxing! :)

3. A Calender - I can't go anywhere without my planner!  I'm always thinking of new blog posts and when an idea strikes, my planner must be nearby!  Plus it helps me stay organized.

4. Colored Pencils / Sharpies / Pencils - Going along with the whole notebook and calender theme, sharpies and pencil are a must!  It makes everything look neat and tidy {just the way I like it!}

5. Snacks & Drinks - This one is pretty obvious!  You gotta have your munchies.  We don't stop at restaurants often, but when we do it's always Cracker Barrel!
 
6. Motion Sickness / Tylenol - If your like me and get awful headaches while reading in the car, then these two are a must!  I love to read on a road trip, but I hate the  headache it comes with.

7. Pillow & Blanket - Again, this is another obvious one.  A pillow and blanket are great if you're leaving early in the morning.  Personally, I'd rather have a sweater/hoodie instead of a blanket.  I love my big, soft, white, comforter.  Unfortunately, it's just too big for the car. :(

8. Ipad / Phone / Chargers - I usually watch movies on {my mom's} tablet.  Pride & Prejudice and Disney movies are my favorite!  Of course you have to have your phone.  I can't go anywhere without mine!

9. Sweater - Like I said in #7, I prefer having a sweater.  If your like me and get cold easily, then you will probably want to bring along a sweater/cardigan! ;)

10. Music {CDs} - Honestly, I don't listen to a lot of pop music.  The only pop music I really listen to is Taylor Swift.  I prefer christian, classical {I know, I know...}, and a little bit of pop.


I hope you have a safe and fun road trip!

Until next time,

Xoxo, Natalie

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone had a fabulous week!  As always, I will be sharing all the things I have been loving this week.  Enjoy!

4. Festivals 

Fall festivals, balloon festivals, art festivals.... there are just too many to count!  I love them all, but fall festivals are my favorite!  The crisp autumn air, pumpkin patch, and hot chocolate are only a few of the reasons why I love them so much.

5. This Quote

I love this quote so much!  I reminds me that God is in control of my life, and He will protect me no matter what.

Stay still and listen somethings aren't said but still can be heard.

6. Confetti 

Filling a balloon with confetti and popping it is on my bucket list!  When I saw this on Tumblr, it made me so happy. :)

Hope everyone has a fun-filled weekend!

Chinos and Coral


 

 


 

 


 







 
White Tee // 5" Navy Chino Shorts // Coral Belt {similar} // Rosette Necklace {similar here & here} // Pearl Bracelet {similar here & here} // Gold watch {similar}


This week has been really busy!  So, this outfit has been my go to.  Basic tees and chinos are essential in my wardrobe.  Chinos are sooo... comfy and a basic tee is very versatile!  Also, a bright, fun belt can really add to an outfit.

Apologies for wearing the same watch in the past couple {okay, way more than a couple!} posts.  I love it so much, and I find myself wearing a lot of gold!
 
I have been trying out different ways to style my chino shorts.  So, be sure to keep an eye out for those post!


 Until next time,
