I live for the classic "Jen Anniston - jeans and a white tee" look! So when I came across this cropped pullover I was SOLD. Something I love about this in particular is the fact that it is reminiscent of the 90s. Since I was a small child in the 90s and not quite a teen, I always admired the older girls and what they'd wear. Even though I wasn't old enough to rock some of the looks I loved, I I'm not complaining! I mean I modeled every outfit I wore from what I saw on Lizzie McGuire and MK & A movies. By the way isn't Hilary Duff just... Okay, I'll stop. Saving the Hilary rants for my Instagram Story. Since I own basically no oversized tee shirts (I'm funny) I had to have this bell-sleeve wonder! Ya'll know I love a big shirt, and this is my jam. Looking forward to transitioning this basic into fall! Lastly, why does Jennifer Aniston look so chic in a white T-shirt and blue jeans?

Did anyone else's mom get super extra when it came to back-to-school shopping? Well, mine did, and I wasn't ever mad at it. I remember this one plaid skirt from... you guessed it... Abercrombie. It was so unique and I knew someone at school would laugh at me for wearing it because it was pretty out of the norm for New Albany Middle School. We bought it anyway. I loved that stinkin' skirt! And, just like that I'm 24 and trying to dress like my middle school self. LOL. But, really, this jacket gives me such nostalgic vibes. I really love a piece of clothing that makes me 1. smile. 2. feel C-O-N-F-I-D-E-N-T (in my Fifth Harmony voice). I'm loving all of what Urban Outfitters is bringing right now. This time of year I love the back-to-school feel, but of course, without going to school. UO is bringing all of it, and I am living for it!
Head over to my Instagram and let me know what your favorite thing about back-to-school is/was?
Finally found the perfect pair distressed white jeans! Can you believe it? I've found a couple pair this year that I liked, but none that I LOVED. The raw hem on these babies really sold me. I basically don't own a pair of denim that isn't ripped in some way because I'm just not that fancy. Madewell kills it when I comes to every detail I look into when trying on jeans - rise, stretch, quality, and the more rips the better. LOL. One thing to keep in mind with Madewell jeans in particular is that they will stretch. I went back and forth trying on two different sizes and eventually went with the smaller one. I'm glad I did because they definitely loosened up a bit after wearing them several times!
What is your favorite denim brand? Let me know on Instagram! I've been doing a lot more Insta Stories lately so come say hi!

Do you ever put on an outfit and feel like a total boss? This is definitely one of those for me! I have been obsessed with gingham this summer, and how it can be perfect for any occasion. I love the look of this one with both a casual slide as well as with a dressier sandal. To be honest, I probably would've gasped at the sight of someone wearing Nike slides and gingham capris in middle school... LOL. But, not anymore. Mixing the lux with the sporty is a vibe I'm totally, well, "vibing"? (Am I cool yet?) If you tend to be fearful of going outside of the "safe" zone in regard to you wardrobe I cannot encourage you enough to GO FOR IT. It blows my mind how much I used to care about what my peers thought of my outfits. I mean after all, they are just that. MY outfits. Wear what makes you feel good. Unless, it's that red situation Pharrell's wife wore to the Met Gala. I'm pretty sure that was a fire hydrant #noshade.

Summertime turns me into a shopaholic (even more than usual). So, I strive to shop for pieces that are both affordable and of good quality! I wanted to share some of my favorite clothing items I've been loving this month all in one post. You can shop these items directly just by clicking on the name or photo of the product you love!
The Fourth of July is no exception to my love for styling festive outfits! I leap at the chance to shop for some red, white, and blue. Seeing as how I'm currently obsessing over the color red (peep the gram) I had no problem picking up so many fun, festive pieces while on vacation.
I scored this look at the CUTEST shop in Cancun last week called Pull & Bear. Sadly, they don't have shops in the U.S. and to my knowledge they don't ship here. Never fear, I have found nearly perfect matches for everything in this post and they are all linked below. The skirt is in fact the exact one from ASOS. As for the cutest little straw bag you've ever seen... I scored this baby at a vintage shop in Marietta, GA, but I also linked a pretty close dupe from Free People.
Follow more fun festive, summer looks over on my Instagram. Cheers to the red, white, and blue! I hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend!
Halloween costume...check! (Lol) Feeling a little like Minnie Mouse in this get up, but I'm not mad about it. Loving classic silhouettes like this lately. The pattern is timeless and the shape is something that never goes out of style. That's what I'm looking for these days when decided whether or not something belongs in my closet.
Obsessed with red right now especially for our vacation. It's just one color I can never get tired of. Of course I say that about every color and then buy everything in sight and burn myself out.
That's the end of yet another mini ootd post from vacay! Cheers!
Red Polka Dot Dress
Nothing fancy here! Just wanted to link last nights dinner outfit in Cancun. Loving this chic white off the shoulder top from Zara, and I finally found some denim short I don't hate (lol)! Also, tried the sleek pony and I'm kind of digging it! Links for this entire look are down below!

When summertime in Georgia rolls around I love nothing more than a flowy maxi dress! The heat can sometimes be unbearable so I quite prefer something that flows and that's breathable. I usually go straight for dresses because they are so easy to style and are effortless when packing for a summer vacay which is what's coming up for me! I'm headed to Mexico next weekend and I'm looking forward to posting some fabulous summer looks! I have linked everything below or at least it's near perfect match if the exact one couldn't be found!
Hat- American Threads / Similar here
Dress- American Threads / Same but different color
With a week of vacation to look forward to this month, I am stocking up on all the perfect beach looks and sunnies! I am back on the pink train again with this little romper I picked up from American Threads. Pretty sure I could find all my vacay gear in that lovely store. Continuing with the theme of pink, DIFF Charitable Eyewear sent me these fabulous Bella shades that I'm positive will style perfectly with every bit of my beachwear. Oh, and if you so desire a pair of your own just use the code VICLINDSEY for 25% off. For each pair of shades purchased, DIFF donates a pair of glasses to someone in need. Now that's shopping with a purpose!
I'm all about a good "thrown on and go" dress! I have found the perfect one for your weekend get-up and it's less that $30. Say what?!
Summertime is here so that means festivals, pool days, and vaycays. I was inspired by all of these for this look. I would rock this to a weekend barbecue or even over my swimsuit at the beach. Summer shoes (aka strappy, heeled sandals) can be so uncomfortable so that's why I have been rocking my classic Converse lately. Comfort is KEY ladies! To make this dress have a bit more shape I added this vintage belt that I bought for $8 at an antique shop in Mississippi. (I linked the entire Etsy search for vintage Brighton leather belts below.) Side note: so obsessed with antique accessories at the moment.

I'm a sucker for a good print and my obsession this season has to be lemons! Yellow is the color of the summer so what perfect way to rock that trend than with a dress covered in lemons? In the fall and winter I rarely change out of my black and grey uniform, but as soon as spring and summer arrive I can find a new favorite color and get stuck on it for weeks. Next time you see me don't be surprised if I have yellow nails :) (but if I wear yellow lipstick you should tell me to dial it down a little lol)
Growing up I always enjoyed getting all dressed up for any occasion but especially Easter. It was the perfect time to pick out a new dress for Sunday morning's church service. I still feel the same today as I wear this twirly little linen dress!
What excites me the most about Easter is the opportunity to spend time celebrating the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus and being able to see my family. I'm grateful to have had a lifetime of knowing about Jesus, but in the last year I have found my heart more close to His than ever. I have made Him not only an important part of my life but the most important part of my life.
I just felt like making Easter Sunday's post about a little more than an outfit, but still how cute is this linen dress? Links are below.
Happy Easter, everyone, and God bless.
