We both consider one of our fall essentials to be our Vineyard Vines fleece vest. It is so versatile and perfect to layer for the fall and winter seasons. I styled my vest two ways. The first look is more casual, and the second look is more dressed up.

Falling for Jadelynn Brooke's Fall Line

If you haven't heard of Jadelynn Brooke yet your missing out! They have the absolute cutest preppy shirts, sweatshirts, and accessories. We worked together this summer and I was so happy to receive this package from their fall line! I adore everything, they also have the cutest packaging too which made me feel so happy when I opened up the box. The packaging is full of pink and navy, which many of you know is my favorite color combo. Thank you so much Jadelynn Brooke for this awesome package! I cannot wait to wear my new goodies!

The first thing in the package was these ADORABLE seersucker hats! I am obsessed with hats and cant wait to add these to my collection!

As you can see I was really feeling the 'MERICA theme while picking out my favorite products! This crewneck sweatshirt is so adorable and super cozy! I can't wait to wear it with leggings and bean boots this fall and winter.  

How perfect is the quote on the back?!?

The next thing in the package was the most adorable tees! The first one is a hot pink long sleeve tee with #PREPPY on the front. The color is so vibrant and pretty and the tee is super soft.

The second tee shirt is this adorable American Flag tee with the most adorable bow detail on the sleeve and on the flag. It's such a cute tee!

Everyone go check out and make your day happier!

Dress Well, Test Well.

Hey everyone! Today I took my PSAT (Practice SAT). Test taking is not my favorite thing to do, I always get so nervous the night before and can't sleep. This was only a practice test so I wasn't as nervous. I always get "dressed" up to go to school when I don't have to wear my uniform. So, for my test I wore an outfit that I think is the perfect balance between cute and comfortable. My Vineyard Vines Shep Shirt is the perfect top, it's comfortable and cute.  When taking the test it flew by! After the test my friend Carolyn, my mom , and I went to Target and had lunch at Panera. It was such a nice day!

The Perfect Fall Lip + A Trick to Having a Longer Ponytail

Hey everyone! Today I'm talking about my favorite fall lip color. It's Covergirl color number 360 "euphoria". it is the perfect mix between red and purple and a great color for the fall. I also pair it with my favorite Revlon lip gloss in the color Bordeaux, which is sadly no longer available. The color looks great with everything for fall, and the lipstick was a great price. I bought mine at Target, but it's also available anywhere that sells Covergirl cosmetics (Walmart, local drug store, Ulta, etc.).
Lately I've been loving this trick I found on (where else, but ) Pinterest. It is a great way to make your ponytail appear longer without any extensions! I included a few pictures below on how to achieve this look.
Start off by sectioning your hair and putting it into a high bony, and a low pony.
Use bobby pins to secure your hair on the sides of the lower pony to hide it.


Also here's todays OOTD :)
