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.

XOXO,
E.

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!!!

XOXO,
E.

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??

XOXO,
E.

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??

XOXO,
E.

To All the Single Ladies


raise ur hand
like
rt
favorite
quote tweet
share

if...
every time you get on any social media someone you know just got 

engaged

married

or announced they're pregnant.

idk what koolaid some of these ppl are drinking but apparently everyone's drinking it.

if you're single (like myself), it gets quite overwhelming (sometimes nauseating tbh) just sitting back and j chillin watching everyone you know grow up so fast. 

Ok. and don't get me wrong, I want all of those things too in life. I want to me a wife and I know I'm meant to be a mom. BUT NOT NOW + I am supes gucci with that.

I feel like ppl just get really down and feel crappy about themselves about their singleness and of course it bothers me sometimes, but I'm not totally mad about it. 
Let's look at the bright side of things here ppl. 

I am 21 years old and I have my whole life ahead of me and I know God's timing for my life is not the same for everyone's.
We need to accept that and enjoy the life God has given us.

Here are my tips on being single 101 bc I like to think I'm pretty good at it.

1. HOMEGIRL, DO YOU.
Just do you. live your life. focus on yourself. better yourself. pick a dream, chase it. treat yo self. 

2. Hang with ur #1.
Jesus is ur homeboy. He always will be. Get to know Him. Rest in His goodness. Pursue Him, not him. 

3. Delete the socials.
whenever u get down in the dumps, and feel like you're the only single one in the world filled of cute insta couples, delete your social media. bc when you feel like that it's just bc that is what the enemy wants you to think and that IS A LIE.

4. Pals.
Make friends. Keep in touch with the old. Pursue your friendships. They're always going to be there (at least they should be lolz). Make the most out of your friendships, they're probz going through the same stuff that you are. 

Hopefully this helped some y'all who are riding that struggle train (choo choo). 
What other fun tips do you have?? 

XOXO,
E.

How I Became A Morning Person


I've never classified myself as a morning persona + idk if I still don't or not, but I have definitely grown to love the morning time since being in college. It's just the perfect time to have "me" time. Which I believe it sooo crucial to everyone's well being. 

Here are my tips for becoming a morning person...

- get as much sleep as you can

-drink water when you wake up

-leave yourself time to get up and not be in a rush

-aka wake up early
weird I know, but it helps soooo much

-spend time with Jesus in the morning

-eat a breakfast you're actually going to like
I despise cereal and protein bars in the morning, so I make sure I have time to make eggs and sausage.

-make a plan for the day the night before

-pick out your clothes the night before and decide what you're going to do to your hair
by choosing not to do your hair (which is me 99% of the time) you get to sleep more (:

Are you a morning person or a night owl???
I wanna know!!

XOXO,
E.
