a Taylor Swift quote, duh

Here's a quote that I try to live by in all circumstances.
+ it just so happened to be my high school senior quote.

"No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind." 
-Taylor Swift

What every life throws my way, whether it's good or bad.
My wish is that every person that I encounter in life looks back and thinks that I did something good for them.
In every season and every day of my life I want this to be true. Whether it's a simple smile or an elaborate gesture.

This isn't very realistic, not everyone is going to like me, but a girl can try.

What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind???

What a Dream

Since graduation is right around the corner for me, I have been thinking about what I want my life to look like for the rest of my life. It's funny how much my goals and dreams have changed in such a short time. 

If you would have asked me in high school what I thought my life would look like right now I would say "I'll be engaged by 22, married by 23, kids by 24; living in my hometown the rest of my life." 

That situation is the farthest thing from my current reality.
+ for that I am thankful.

I'm 21 years old w/o a boy in sight.
I'm not going to be engaged by 22 (that's 3 months away HOLY CRAP). 
So that means no marriage by 23....and certainly no kids by 24.
+ I am very thankful for that. 

+ can we just bless up that I don't want to spend the rest of my life in my hometown.
+ This I am extra thankful for.

Current reality:
I am 21 with my whole life ahead of me.
I have absolutely no clue what I want to do when I graduate.
Seriously I am open to any and everything.

Yesterday I applied to 6 jobs and they are all completely different. 
Some in Greenville, SC, some in NY, NY, some in ATL.
I'm seriously trying to keep my options open bc idk what God has next for me yet, 

but I am going to let him decide and plan that for me.

As much as I want to already have it figured out right now, I have nothing figured out.

But here is what I do know.

My goal, my dream, my passion in life is connecting with other people, building relationships, being a light in the dark, pointing people to Jesus.

+ nothing else matters.
God's given my a passion for fashion, a passion for blogging, a passion for people.
He's given me these things for a reason so hopefully my career someday will revolve around these things. 

Idk how God is going to orchestrate this in my life. I know He is faithful and He has given me these passions for a reason + He is going to make sure that I see them out.

I feel like I'm Julian rn asking 
"What comes next??"
(if ya know, ya know)

God comes next.

Thanksgiving Outfit

Soooo apparently dressing up for thanksgiving is the thing to do. So I'm hopping on the trend and showing y'all what I would wear to a thanksgiving dinner. But honestly, I'm probably not getting out of my pj's on thanksgiving. 
Why would I get all dressed up to just hang out at home with my fam all day shoving our faces with food???? QTNA
Fun fact: My fam + I aren't turkey fans, like it kinda grosses me out for some reason sooo we eat lasagna on thanksgiving. It's 100x better and I love that that's our families little tradition.

You can deff expect me to be sporting my Christmas jammies all day but if I were to get dressed this is what I would wear.

I'm obsessed with black jeans so those are deff a must. They are such a statement piece and add so much more than just regular jeans.

Bell sleeves.
Honestly, if every shirt I wore had bell sleeves I'd be so gucci.
They just make me feel so put together and add so much sass to any outfit.

Double Buckle belt.
Ok so I can safely say I'm all aboard the double buckle express. It's soooo Nashville. & I have this obsession with Nashville, a place I've never actually been to. It's southern, boho, and chic. You all need to buy a double buckle A$AP Rocky.

To check out sneak peaks and my jammies I'll be sporting on Thanksgiving, hit me up on my insta.

+ I wish you all a fabulous Thanksgiving!!!

Halloween + Fam

Ok before I kick it in high Christmas mode I though I should talk Halloween.
My srat fam + I dressed up as KISS for our philanthropy event on Sunday + I am obsessed with how perfect it turned out. 
If you've been around my blog for a while then you would know I am actually obsessed with these galz. 
So we knew we had to have a ROCKIN costume together. 
I think we pulled it off. 
We just found random t shirts, mine is from amazon, and we rocked it out. 

Also, We won a trophy for BEST FAM.
Bless it. 

Ugh I just love these galz. They're the ones that make me laugh harder than anyone else. 
They put up with my hot mess self and love me through it.

What's you dress up as for Halloween??

The Dress

First off, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! I've never been one to get into Halloween, but this year I'm feeling it. And by that I mean I am dressing up as a pumpkin tonight for Trick or Treating + I am pumped about it!!! I've also been listening to Christmas music for a solid week now, but that's besides the point. 

Here it is. My Best Dress Ever. I'm so obsessed. I first saw it on LC Steele's blog and I immediately fell in love and just knew I had to have it. I just had no idea where I was going to wear it.

I wore this beautiful creation to my Clemson ring ceremony last week where I got my Clemmy ring (eeeek!!!!) and I want to wear it everyday of my life. 

I want to style it with OTK boots, cardigans, maybe some skinnies...this list goes on but basically I'm saying you have to buy this dress.
The dress also comes in two other colors!!

What's your latest clothing obsession + How would you style this dress??
