Instagram Round-Up

Hey Cats!

I’m sitting here watching the Bachelorette finale and eating ice cream, because it was definitely a Monday. All around my office, actually. We all left a few minutes early because it was just that bad. I cried at my desk, not a joke. But I went home early, went to the gym, and then watched hours of reality tv and ate ice cream, and now I feel a lot better about my life.

Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite photos from the blogstagram! I try to at least tag where everything is from, but sometimes I can’t find the official Instagram account/I’m running late to work and don’t even have time to be posting to Instagram in the first place, so this is a great way to share the details with y’all! Here are my latest snapshots!

coffee-table-instagram

This is a shot of my coffee table that is the pride and joy of my apartment. Seriously. I knew I wanted a hot pink coffee table, and I decorated the rest of my living room around it. I keep this chic Sarah Hansen Annapolis Queen Bee tray on it, and my Kate Spade planner. It’s from last year, but I’m loving this year’s options!

Loft-top-instagram

I LAHVE the geometric print on this top from Loft. It’s bold without being overwhelming, and I love the teal color! Also, this top is super comfy, it’s t-shirt material on the body, and a flowy, gauzy material for the sleeves. I paired it with my BaubleBar monogram necklace and my gold triangle studs. I couldn’t find them online, but these are super similar!

leopard-outfit-instagram

This is one of my go-to work outfits. I actually wore it yesterday, but with different shoes (still leopard, obviously). I paired my trusty JCrew Factory chambray with my black jeans from Old Navy, and these leopard wedges that I got at Target a few years ago! Once again, I couldn’t find them online but I love these!

swim-instagram

I bought this monogrammed bandeau swim top from Marley Lilly at the beginning of the summer, and I’m obsessed with it. I love this font, and the bright green! I’ve paired it with both bright coral and black bottoms, and it’s adorable! However, I will say I ordered a medium and it’s a little big, and it doesn’t come with pads, which is obviously necessary for a white top. But there are spots to add them yourself, so I just stole them from one of my old tops and it’s perfect!

paris-shirt-instagram

This flouncy little top with Eiffel towers all over from Francesca’s is another work go-to. This top doesn’t have little Parisian icons on it, but it’s a similar shape and color! I layered my BaubleBar monogrammed necklace with this BURDLife pendant for a fancy look.

green-pants-instagram

Green pants can make any day a little brighter! I bought this spring green pair at JCPenney, and they’re some of my favorites! Also, these brown simple sandals from Target are so great that I have to limit myself on how often I wear them.

polka-dot-pants-instagram

These polka-dot Pixie Pants from Old Navy are what I wear when I want to feel really put-together. I added a pop of color with this orange button-down (similar) and tied it together with my Kate Spade leopard bag.

Faux Real

Hey Cats!

This post means that I indeed survived my dentist appointment yesterday- I know you were all concerned. It actually wasn’t that bad, except for some reason they gave me an excess of novocaine shots. He started with three, and then added more throughout the procedure, and I lost count. They made the entire left side of my face numb for hours, which was really interesting while I tried to drink a smoothie on the way home. I kept trying to smile and I felt like Fiona from A Cinderella Story after she gets Botox and “can’t show emotion for another hour and a half”. Fun times.

Unfortunately, I have no sassy comments on last night’s Bachelor episode, because I didn’t watch it. But I’m praying it will be on on-demand soon, because the first few weeks are crucial to learning the girls’ names and deciding who I kind of like and who needs to go home and learn how to be a normal person before ever socializing with men again. According to my Twitter timeline, Chris makes questionable choices, which always makes for fun and interactive television, so I can’t wait.

This outfit combines all of my latest favorite things- the sweater, the vest, and the booties. This sweater is sooo comfy and I have been trying to limit myself from wearing it every day. It’s not really working. I threw on the fur because it was freezing outside and I didn’t want to wear a coat, and I thought it dressed up the ensemble a bit. Also, this was the first time I wore my new booties, which I have since become obsessed with. My brown riding boots are currently being re-soled because I wreaked havoc on them walking across the pebbled concrete on campus for 2.5 years, so I’ve been substituting these booties when I would usually wear my riding boots. I like that they have a different look from my riding boots- definitely a good addition to my shoe closet! I added a statement necklace for some interest, and toted my trusty Kate Spade bag for a necessary addition of leopard print. I wore this to church, but it would also be great for date night or dinner with friends!

That’s all for meow!

Still Not a Hipster.

Hey Cats!

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Oh sorry, that’s just me still dying laughing about The Bachelor premiere last night. Where do they find these girls? I know it’s the first night, and some of them will calm down in a few weeks, but there seems to be an extra dose of crazy this season. I mean, we had crazy eyes, dance lessons (okay, what?), and sooo much white-girl wasted.  Which is actually fine, because that just gives me more sassy comments to make to my roommates and more “is she serious” Snapchats to send to my friends. That’s why I love this show, not because of the “romance” or “true love”, but because it’s always an absolute trainwreck.

I wore this outfit a few weeks ago to do some last-minute Christmas shopping, before it got unbearably cold. It’s a little more edgy than what I would usually wear…some might even call it a little…hipster. But I’m going to use the word ‘edgy’, because becoming a hipster is one of my greatest fears in life. Besides, I’m wearing leopard print smoking slippers, so I think that knocks down the hipster points a bit, no? I really actually loved this outfit because it was so comfy, and great for running around town!

Also let’s talk about the glasses. I love my glasses, and I would definitely wear them more often if the prescription was up-to-date. I usually just wear them if I wake up late, or if I literally don’t care about anything that day, but today I thought they would look cute! Also, funny story: I wear daily contact lenses, and they come in boxes of 30. I have a three-month supply, but when I was packing, I only brought the box I was currently using, so I had like, less than 25 pairs to last me all Christmas break. OOPS. So I have been wearing my glasses occasionally to conserve contacts, and this was one of those days! But rest assured that I will not make the same mistake again, because I feel super lazy when I wear my glasses, and I’m pretty sure it’s not safe to drive in lenses this old. Especially when it’s nighttime and I’m driving my mom’s car. But we’re not going to tell anyone that I did that.

In My Closet- Leopard Print Flats

Hey Cats!

I’ve decided to start a new blog  series called “In My Closet”! As of right now, I’m planning on featuring a piece from my wardrobe that I believe is a staple of the fashion-forward young woman. I’m not sure how often it will be, but stay tuned!

Today I chose leopard print flats. I commented to a reader recently that leopard print was my favorite neutral, and it’s really the truth. The print includes both brown and black, so it goes with literally everything! I bought these a couple of years ago, and I still love them so much!

I fell in love with the Steve Madden version, but they were way out of my price range. Fortunately, I was able to find a cheaper pair at Kohl’s from Candie’s that was much better for my college-girl budget! As you know, I am obsessed with the smoking slipper style, but you could totally do regular ballet flats, or the trendy pointy-toe flat! I wear these with jeans and just about any top, colored jeans, leggings, and even shorts. They seem like they would be a trendy addition, but I firmly believe every woman should have a pair of leopard flats. They are the perfect way  to add a little interest to any ensemble without being too flashy, and I don’t think they’re going out of style anytime soon! So if you don’t have any, you should go pick up some fierce footwear!

Stay tuned to see what else is in my closet & on my plate!

Review- iPhone Case From Cali’s Cases

Hey Cats!

I have been wanting a monogrammed iPhone case ever since I got an iPhone, but I was afraid to get anything other than an OtterBox because of my clumsy nature. However, I recently decided that I was tired of my OtterBox, and it was time for something cuter! I have been searching for the perfect case for quite some time, and I finally came across Cali’s Cases on Etsy. She has tons of options for every taste, and they very affordable!

I chose this adorable leopard print with a hot pink monogram, because the animal print made me feel really fierce and fabulous. I chose the rubber case, since I felt like it would protect my phone the best. Cali’s ships amazingly fast; I ordered the case on Wednesday and received it on Saturday! Also, the case is more durable than I thought it was going to be. The rubber isn’t flimsy, and the back printed portion of the case is a hard plastic. I was worried about it not protecting my phone as well as my OtterBox, but I think it will hold up pretty well! It’s also a lot slimmer and less bulky than my OtterBox, which is great! So, if you’re looking for a monogrammed iPhone case, I would definitely recommend Cali’s Cases. She also has iPad cases, monogrammed tumblers, decals, keychains, and more affordable monogrammed items! Cali has also offered 10% off of an order for Sweet Cats! readers! Just enter the coupon code “10OFF” when you check out! Let me know how you like it!
