Rocks Box and Waffles and Sisters, Oh My!

I recently received my newest Rocks Box and I couldn’t be happier!

I got these gorgeous Kendra Scott Alex Earrings that I will definitely be spending my monthly Shine Spend on, this Gorjana bar necklace that goes perfectly with everything, and some versatile earrings that match!

I wore the KS earrings and the necklace on a photoshoot with my DZ grand little!

The shorts are from H&M and the top is from Garage.

After our photo shoot, we headed to Nina’s Waffles where we got waffles and ice cream!

Crafting and Fashion

Two of my favorite things in one post: fashion and crafting!

This dress was super on sale from H&M and it is so cute and comfy. I paired it with a gold and tortoise shell necklace and a huge paper flower that I made for the Bridal Show at the Olde Mill Inn! The flowers are super simple to make; I found an easy step by step guide on Pinterest.

Excuse my exhausted looking eyes… at least those bags are designer!

Favorite Things

Here are a couple of my favorite things from my Instagram recently!

  1. Forever 21 Pouches

IMG_1668

I have the “Simple” one with me constantly to hold all of the random junk that would otherwise float around in my purse, and the other to hold pens for school. At only $4.50 each they were a steal!

2. Home Goods Flamingo Tumbler

IMG_1794

This baby has been going EVERYWHERE with me. Not only does it make my caramel macchiatos even more fun, it was only $3 in the clearance section!

3. Charles & Charles Rose

IMG_2056

Not gonna lie, I picked it for the cute bottle, but I’d totally pick it again. IT’S SO PRETTY (and tasty). I finished it off while watching the balloons from the NJ Balloon Festival float through my back yard.

4. Finding a Coke with my Name on it!

This was just exciting. I’m easily amused.

5. H&M Pineapple Keychain

OB-Sessed with this keychain. It was only $4.99, it’s gold, and it’s a pineapple. What more could you want?

Stay tuned for more of my favorite things!

My “Edgy” Look

I know I’m late to the game, but I recently purchased my first ever pair of high waisted shorts from Garage! My artsy sister definitely approved, but also laughed at me when I paired them with this neon Lilly Pulitzer tank. Even though I’m a prep at heart, I gotta stay current with the hip trends… ok I’m not even fooling myself!

IMG_1993I still think I look pretty cool πŸ™‚

(Side note, totally burned my elbow on the hot deck… whoops)

Rocks Box

Recently I signed up for Rocks Box, which is a monthly subscription that allows you to rent designer jewelry for as long as you want. When you are done, you send it back free of charge, and they send you three new pieces. It is just $19 a month, but I got my first month free because my friend had a code. If you’d like to sign up, use my personal code:Β katebff337

This box was absolutely perfect because it matched all of the dresses I bought for Senior week and Graduation!
I wore the blue Kendra Scott earrings to my sorority’s senior party, with a dress from Charlotte Russe and heels from C. Wonder (rip).

I wore the white druzy Kendra Scott earrings for graduation, which I will post later, and the Perry Street necklace for Senior Champagne Brunch. I am planning on also wearing it to Jack’s Sister’s rehearsal dinner!

Delta Zeta Formal

This past weekend, my chapter of Delta Zeta had our fall semester formal! I thought I would share my outfit and a new skincare secret!

Since it is in November, most people opt to wear darker colors for fall formal, and then go all out with patterns and colorful dresses for the spring. Fall also tends to be less formal.

Here I am with my little and little little! I wore a black lace dress from Delia’s. I know what you’re thinking… is she 15? But since I am a very small person, if I don’t want to have to take in a dress, shopping at a “juniors” store gives me more fit options. Also, this dress is very adult looking, the perfect length, and it was about $20.

I chose to accessorize with pops of bright pink, my shoes from Sam Edelman, a skinny Kate Spade bangle, (not shown) my Kate Spade cross body bag, and with my handsome boyfriend!

I curled the bottom three inches or so of my hair with my Jose Eber Clipless Curling Iron. It is actually my favorite hair accessory.

Leading up to formal, I was worried about the effect that the cold dry air was having on my skin. Luckily, I got a special delivery from Influenster: A full size sample of Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion. I already use Vaseline lotion with Cocoa Butter, but this new formula really seems to penetrate deeper into my skin. It has worked absolute wonders, especially my legs, which get so dry from shaving.

I had an amazing time at formal and couldn’t be more excited to continue using Vaseline lotion!

 

Make a Statement

I don’t usually wear a lot of jewelry so if there’s one thing I love it’s a statement piece. One really great looking piece is, in my opinion, much more elegant and eye-catching than loading on a ton of bling.

I had been looking at a particular necklace from BaubleBar for-EVER, but I wasn’t sure if it was worth it’s original price. I found it the other day for only $17 so I had to get it! Unfortunately since it was on sale, it is no longer on the website but you can find similar necklaces at other stores.

This was my first Bauble Bar purchase (even though I’ve wanted everything on the site for a while!) so they sent my bauble in really cute packaging with a handwritten note!

They even included a free gift, Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish in Dive In.

I paired this necklace with a neutral outfit so it wouldn’t be overwhelming.

I also love statement earrings! Most of the time I just wear them on their own, especially if they are as big as the ones I received as a free gift from Lilly Pulitzer.

I haven’t worn these out yet because they are definitely a statement, and they’re a little heavy so I wouldn’t want to wear them for too long. Hopefully my boyfriend will take me to a nice dinner soon πŸ™‚

Sorry for all the selfies, the worst part of being a fashion blogger is when no one is around to take your picture!
