fab in florals

Spring fashion is so fun and bright!  I love an easy and cute floral print dress and everyone knows I'm obsessed with jean jackets, which is why I paired  these two staple pieces together for a fun spring look!  The pieces in this outfit will be difficult to link, since this dress and shoes were bought last year, and the jacket is a 90's hand-me-down from my mom.  With that being said, I am going to link the items that I can find in the "outfit details" and will link similar pieces to the items that are  not linkable.

August in Review

Can you believe it's already September?  This time last year, I was counting down the days to 21, now I am just wishing for time to slow down a little!!! All in all, this month has brought me many blessings! Read to find out what I've been up to in August 2017! 

(my top 5 Instagram pics from August 2017)

Tanner & I got a house together!
This is the absolute best thing that's happened in my life this past month!  Tanner and I moved into an adorable little house together!! (More on this in a future post later!) This is a huge step in our relationship and I wouldn't have it any other way!  This is my first time ever having a roommate! I've lived in apartments on my own for all years of college so far, including freshman year, mostly because I like having my own space (don't we all?)  Well, this past month has been absolutely amazing for Tanner & I!  We've grown closer in our relationship and we're learning so much about one another and what it means to live with someone you want to share your life with! We have a two-bedroom home with a large backyard and a cute front porch! He turned one of the rooms into his man-cave and decorated it how he wanted, giving me the creative freedom to decorate the rest of the house how I wanted, with of course, taking into consideration some of what he wanted too.  In the next month, I will be blogging about the new home's decor & updating everyone on our new adventures living together as a young couple!  Stay tuned :)

4 years dating & 6 years of friendship with Tanner!
So, if you don't already know the story of how Tanner & I met, I've linked one of my previous posts explaining that amazing moment: here!!  This month marks SIX YEARS of being best friends with Tanner and FOUR YEARS of us dating!  I can't wait to see where the future leads us and can't believe that 4 years ago, I fell head over heels for my best friend!

Senior year of college started! 
This past month, I started my 4th, and final year of college!! I'm taking some really difficult but interesting classes, including three finance classes and one marketing class.  Next semester, I will really start diving into Marketing and I can't wait!! Stay tuned for tips on how to survive your classes and how I am dealing with the fears that come with finding a job after college & adulting!!!
