How I Decorated My Bedroom

How I Decorated My Bedroom

Next up in my apartment tour, my bedroom. This room had the most work that needed to be done a few weeks ago, because when I moved in we just bought a dresser, bed, and two bedside tables. Everything in the living room is black, gold, white, and pink, so to brighten things up my bedroom is pink, green, navy and white. 

The first thing we bought was the bed frame and dresser from Ikea. I moved to Charlotte without knowing which bedding I wanted, but the first day of move-in, I found this bedding from Kate Spade. I love it! I matched it with these pillowcases and these sheets, also from Kate Spade. As for the throw pillows, one is from Homegoods and three are from Kate Spade (here and here).

My mother and I ended up switching out the bedside tables for two new Ikea tables. The bookshelf is from The Container Store, and it's actually two stackable bookshelves on top of each other. My mirror is from Homegoods, as well as the adorable pink stool.

Since my bedroom is quite large, there was a lot of white wall space that needed to be filled up. We found the Andy Warhol print from Homegoods, and the abstract piece above my dresser is something my mom bought a couple of years ago in preparation for the day I finally have my own apartment.

The prints above my bed, however, are all from Etsy. You can find them here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Let me know if y'all want more detail on where I bought certain items!

Hope everyone is having a great Monday! This upcoming weekend two of my friends are visiting for Halloween so I'm trying to take the work-week super easy!

My Weekly Outfits: 10/16-10/22

My Weekly Outfits: 10/16-10/22

Happy Sunday! For those of y'all who follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I have begun regularly posting my outfit of the day. Considering I have moved out of my parents house and don't have them to take pictures of me in my backyard, this is my resolution for outfit-inspiration posts. Also, I just got a new floor mirror last week and I am taking full advantage of it. 

So, every Sunday, I will be posting my weekly outfits with their respective links. Let's get into it!

I picked up this sweater from Target last week. That's right, TAR-JAY. I'm obsessed. It's ridiculously soft and extremely comfortable, plus the actual colors of the leopard print are just right! I'm still in the mindset that white is okay to wear, so screw it let's wear white jeans after Labor Day. Sometimes I get so bored with regular and black jeans! 

I honestly shouldn't be wearing this particular pair of jeans though, considering one of the belt loops has ripped off and is dangling on by a few threads. I guess I pull the loops too hard when I'm hiking my jeans up? Oops.

Let's have a moment of silence for the Newbury bootie by Rag & Bone. I bought them on super sale the summer before my junior year of college, and have worn them NONSTOP since. I love them. They are the perfect height and they go with everything.

This will definitely be a go-to outfit this fall and winter. It's halfway through October, and this week was the first week it actually started feeling a little bit like fall, so I took full advantage of it! Also, my office is an arctic tundra so I layer up anyway. 

I love this poncho from J. McLaughlin, but it is currently sold out...sorry team. I wanted to stay comfortable, so I paired the poncho with a pair of leggings.


My two favorite pair of leggings are the Wunder Under's from Lululemon, and the High Waist Leggings from Zella.

Lastly, it's time to break out the over the knee boots! I'm currently wearing the 5050 Boots by Stuart Weitzman.

This is a great spring/summer/transition outfit. I got this peplum tee from the Nordstrom anniversary sale, and it's fantastic. It's a great option to have when you just want to wear something simple. I love this outfit because I keep it pretty plain with the tee and jeans, but I can spice things up with my jewelry and shoes. 

I've also worn this top/bottom combination with leopard print flats and the Gabriela tassel earrings from Baublebar!

Asics GEL-Contend 4 Running Shoe | Lululemon Mesh Tank Top (similar) | Lululemon Define Jacket | Vineyard Vines Performance Leggings (similar

I actually made it to Friday before giving up and wearing athletic gear to work. I'm wearing Vineyard Vines performance leggings, of all places, and they're honestly my favorite athletic leggings! Their black version isn't available anymore, but they have some fun brightly printed ones on their website.

Alert: these over the knee boots are on sale! I got them last year and wore them consistently through the season. Love. Finally broke them out this weekend! 

Also, another alert: it's turtleneck time! I am weirdly obsessed with turtlenecks and think that they honestly get an (unfairly) bad rep, so I'm going to single-handedly try and change that. I got this J. Crew ribbed turtleneck bodysuit a few weeks ago and it is GOLDEN. With form-fitting turtlenecks, actually form-fitting anything, it's hard to keep them tucked in. Thank God for bodysuits!

Lastly, this skirt was bought on sale last year from Jack Wills, so unfortunately it's not available anymore, but it really could be interchangeable with any miniskirt...a suede one, perhaps?

There you have it! You can shop my ShopStyle closet here, as well as my closet here!

Have a great day, y'all!

If you're like me and are staying in this lovely Friday evening instead of raging it up, you'll need something relaxing to do...aka webshopping. I am kind of over going out right now, so a Friday night in with some Netflix (hi Riverdale) and a pajama set sounds wonderful

I've been browsing some of my favorite shopping websites and have actually come across some great sales for the weekend. I've included my favorites below, as well as my top picks from each sale!

I actually bought the Faux Fur Leopard Vest from J. Crew last week and I am so excited to wear it. It's actually gotten chillier here in Charlotte, so it may not be long until it makes an appearance! J. Crew's main sale is 25% off of coats - I've confessed my love for their outerwear in this previous post and I'm so happy they're on sale!

A few colors of my favorite earrings from Baublebar are on sale too, including the prettiest pink ever. Putting in my shopping cart now!

And of course, I couldn't have a post without featuring something from Tuckernuck. I love this suede top - perfect to wear with black pants and boots or cheetah flats!

My Favorite Suede Skirts This Fall

My Favorite Suede Skirts This Fall

I have started to post my outfit of the day on my blog Instagram page, and I have realized that I do not wear anything besides jeans or leggings and a top. In an effort to add a greater diversity of clothing options in my closet, I am desperately trying to find a perfect suede skirt. 

I am obsessed with the Barton skirt from BB Dakota. The fringe is unreal. I have never been much of a fringe girl, but the dark purpley-red makes it worth it. I also love the BLANKNYC Suede Miniskirt with the side zipper. It's just a good go-to suede skirt with a basic color that can be paired with a lot of other colors.

But let's be real. I will probably only wear a suede skirt with a black turtleneck. 

Turtlenecks for dayysss.

If you're more of a swing skirt type of girl, then the BB Dakota Aileen Faux Suede Skirt is the choice for you. Can we just take a moment to appreciate how much BB Dakota has been killing it lately? Literally everything they release I'm obsessed with. They also have the Cain skirt, which has a small embellishment on the pockets.

If you want to spice up your regular suede skirt, then check out South Moon Under's selection. They have the Abbeline Patchwork skirt and the Raga Button Front skirt. Also great with a black turtleneck!
