Sassy Pants


Leather Leggings: Amazon (under $10!)
Necklace: Love Always
Bracelet: Jane

Sometimes a girl just has to dress a bit sassy every now and then, and that's exactly what I was going for in this outfit. I've been on the hunt for some leather leggings for a long time, and I finally found some that I absolutely love from Amazon! They are under $10, which makes them such a steal! I was also excited to come across these heels from Hipsway (a great boutique here in Conway!) on their Instagram feed! I called to order them, and was lucky enough to pick them up in store the same day. They aren't on their website currently, but if you call, you can order them, and they ship for free!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week! Don't forget to follow along on GFC and Bloglovin!

Sweet and Simple

Sorry this post is so late today! Life has gotten pretty crazy! I don't think I'm ever not studying for a test anymore, so you can imagine how life is going! I am almost through my first round of tests, only to start my second round of tests the following week! But hey, I guess I shouldn't expect anything less of a doctoral program! 

This top from White Plum Boutique is one of my favorites! It is so comfortable and super cute! The gold accents on it make it just perfect to go with my necklace from Born Pretty Store! Don't forget you can use the code HHAT10 to get a 10% discount on any purchases through Born Pretty Store!

Black and Yellow

Black and Yellow

My current wish list is a cross between functional and just plain fun style, and coincidentally, it also ended up being all black and yellow! I've had my eye on a pair of black harem pants for awhile, because they can be dressed up professionally, or dressed down for a more fun look. The leopard print vest just really really needs to get in my closet (so fun and girly!). I am loving the mustard yellow color for fall right now, and this chunky cable knit cardigan is absolutely perfect to throw on with a pair of skinnies and boots. Finally, I can't get enough of the faux leather leggings right now! Throw them on with a pair of heels, and you've got yourself a sassy and fun outfit!

I'm really excited to be bringing you all some great collaborations very soon, including one that will benefit the men in your life! Stayed tuned within the next couple week! :) Don't forget to follow me on GFC and Bloglovin!

Game Day in the South

Gingham: J.Crew Factory
Arkansas Tee: gift
Boots: BEARPAW c/o

Game day in the south is always a huge deal, and for most residents of Arkansas, game day is when the Arkansas Razorbacks play football. Because I'm a graduate of the University of Arkansas, to say I'm an avid fan would be an understatement....a huge understatement. I'm such a big fan that during the fall I find myself buying mostly red so that I can have cute outfits to where to the games, and just because I'm not a student anymore doesn't mean that is going to stop! Game day in the south is serious business! 

Along with football games comes cold weather...veryyyy cold weather as the season progresses. These boots from BEARPAW are absolutely perfect for those cold Razorback games, and I am looking forward to wearing them more this football season!

I hope everyone is having a great Monday! Don't forget to follow me on GFC and Bloglovin!

Trends for Fall

Every season of every year brings new style trends, and I am really excited about the ones for this fall! I wanted to share with you some of my favorite trends for fall, along with some of my favorite items on my wish list of each trend!

1) Robe Coats: I love robe coats because they keep you warm while adding an accent at the waist to keep you from looking bulky! Such a plus!

Journee Collection Junior's Wide Lapel Tie Waist Coat

2) Fair Isle Print: Can I just say how excited I am that this is coming back again this fall/winter!? I can't wait to break out my fair isle prints!

(yes this sweater is from hannaandersson.com - couldn't help posting something with my name!)

3) Sweaters with Oversized Turtlenecks: When you're wearing a sweater like this, who needs a scarf!? I love this trend because of the ability to wear great statement necklaces with it. I can't wait to find a sweater like this for myself!

Cabela's Women's Matamata Turtleneck Sweater at Cabela's

If you can't already tell, I'm thoroughly enjoying fall fashion already, and it isn't even officially fall yet! I am excited to be working on some great fall projects that I can't wait to bring to you all very soon!

In the meantime, tomorrow is officially the big day: my very first gross anatomy test of physical therapy school! I think I have officially studied for this test more than I ever have for anything in my whole entire life! It's amazing how much the brain can comprehend and retain in just four weeks!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Don't forget to follow me on GFC and Bloglovin!

Fall Date Night

Fall Date Night

My love affair with fashion in the fall just keeps growing. I love the warm colors, and especially the booties! These booties are definitely on my wish list right now (how cute are the bows!). The skirt is also on my wish list, not just because of the color, but also because of the fun flare that is has to it! This is definitely an outfit that I would wear out on a date this fall!

I hope everyone is having a good week, and Happy Tuesday everyone! Don't forget to follow along on GFC and Bloglovin!

Finally Fall

Skirt: J.Crew
Top: J.Crew
Vest: (old) (similar)
Necklace: Jane

The cold weather has finally hit and I am so excited! The cold months are my favorite with all the layering, and I can't wait to break out all my vests and cardigans! I'm hoping the cooler weather is here to stay and isn't just a tease. Come on Arkansas, work with me just this once!

This week is going to be a busy one for me. My very first gross anatomy test is this Friday, so I'll basically be living in the library this week when I'm not in class (I've already been doing this all weekend!). Thank goodness for whoever decided to make these walls whiteboard walls. They are the best for drawing structures!

Have a great week everyone! Don't forget to follow along on Google Friend Connect and Bloglovin!
