#ShortGirlProblems

Hey Cats!

I hope everyone is having a good week- halfway through!

Okay, so I’ve been meaning to post this for nearly forever. It’s sad. But I wanted to wait until I’d bought a few things on my shopping list that I thought would pair well with this skirt, and then I wanted to take the pictures on my balcony at home, and then I completely forgot about it until five minutes before I left this weekend, so I frantically threw on the outfit and had my mom snap a couple of pictures. I look a little disheveled, and I’m also not wearing much makeup, so there’s that. But I decided I couldn’t put it off any longer, so here it is!

I was recently contacted by Jane from eShakti to do a product review. I hadn’t heard of eShakti, so I did my research and was so pleased at what I discovered! Not only are their clothes adorable, but they offer customization of size and style on every garment. They have this awesome chart with every size from a 0-36, and (my personal favorite) you can enter your height and specify what length you want your skirt/dress. This is revolutionary for short girls like myself! I’ve always wanted to try a mid-length skirt like the one eShakti sent me, but I could never find one that hit in the right place- they all made me look super stubbs. But when I tried on this skirt, I loved the length, not to mention the bright coral color!

Unfortunately, this skirt is no longer on the website, but I love this one and this one. I paired it with my trusty Swiss dot tank from Old Navy (similar), my Kendra Scott Alexandra earrings in chalcedony, and my black wedges from Target for a cute, casual look that’s perfect for lunch with friends! This would also be adorable with a graphic tee and white sneakers for a more trendy look. I’ll definitely be working this skirt into my work and everyday wardrobe!

If you’re like me and have #shortgirlproblems with skirts and dresses, head over to eShakti for a custom fit!

That’s all for meow!

Totes Perfect.

Hey Cats!

As I may have mentioned, I’m getting a taste of “big city life” this summer, in the sense that I have a long walk and a bus ride to get to work every morning. At first, I dreaded the trek, but now it’s just part of my everyday routine. The only problem was carrying all of my possessions- my lunch, heels, water bottle, and everything else. It took me a long time to decide which tote bag I wanted, but once I finally did, it changed my life. Well, my commute at least.

I chose the Essential Tote from Marley Lilly in navy with a gray monogram. It arrived about an hour before I left for the lake for July 4th, which was a good way to break it in! It’s a great size for a lake tote, which is a bonus since I bought it for work. Every day, I’ll fill it with my lunchbox, my heels (and flats after I change on the bus), my Camelbak, an umbrella if necessary, and as of late, my textbook, notebook, and pencil pouch so I can work on my class on the bus. There’s still room if I ever decide to pack extras, such as gym clothes and shoes, which is a plus.

It’s also incredibly durable. I’ve already spilled water in it (oops), and since it’s lined with plastic, I just wiped it right out! Also I got caught in a torrential downpour on Tuesday that left me completely soaked (still mad), and it held up very well- everything inside was dry, and it didn’t have water stains or become misshapen.

I’m really happy with my tote- not only does it do its job well, but it’s also adorable! If you’re looking for a practical yet personalized tote, head over to Marley Lilly and check out the Essential Tote and more!

That’s all for meow!

Review- Mandy Monograms Hat

Hey Cats!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted- school has definitely been keeping me busy, along with quite a few Aggie football games, trips, and special visitors! I just finished my second round of tests and now have a break for a couple of weeks, so maybe I will have a bit more time on my hands to blog!

A few weeks ago, I ordered a monogrammed cap from Mandy’s Monograms on Etsy. I have been wanting a monogrammed camouflaged hat for months, and I finally found one that I loved! It was about $21 with shipping, so it was a great deal! The camo print isn’t just right, not too country, not too cartoon-looking, and I loved the hot pink thread option. (You can get basically any color, but the pink was my fave!). I ordered the hat with the block monogram rather than script, but I was sent the script. I was a little upset at first, so I contacted Mandy, and she was more than willing to send me a new one. However, I decided that I liked the script better, since it made the hat look more feminine.

This is a great hat to throw on when you’re running late and haven’t had time to fix your hair before class! Also, if the opportunity ever prevents itself to go hunting or participate in some other outdoor activity, this would be the perfect accessory! I’m very pleased with my purchase, and if you’re looking for a monogrammed hat, I would suggest Mandy’s Monograms!

Lily Pulitzer Agenda Review

Hey Cats!

As you may or may not know, I am incredibly Type A, especially when it comes to school. It’s a new development since I went to college. I like to tell myself that it’s because I have a “commitment to excellence” (which is a Texas A&M core value), but many times I’m just being dramatic. One thing I have come to love, cherish, and protect with my life in my past two years of college is my planner. If you’re going to college this fall and in high school you were one of those kids who didn’t really keep up with anything (speaking from experience) and still breezed through, that will change. Once you’re responsible for not only your grades but also your physical survival, you will NEED a planner to help you keep your life together. The first two years, I had a super cute refillable planner with a hot pink cover, and it served its purpose well. However, this year I decided I needed something a little different. I’m going to be involved in a few more organizations, I’m taking a pretty heavy course load, and I’m going to be my sister’s Maid of Honor in February. So I’m already a little stressed. I’d heard that Lily Pulitzer agendas were the way to go, but I was also considering Erin Condren and May Designs. I am super picky about my planner-  a monthly calendar before the weekly pages is imperative, there must be adequate space on each day for me to write assignments on the left and social engagements on the right, and it has to be durable enough to survive an entire year in my backpack and for me to dramatically throw on the ground at least once during finals week. Lily was the one that met all of these criteria. I love how you can personalize Erin Condren and May Books, but there are some things I’m just not willing to sacrifice. I ended up purchasing the Jumbo Agenda in the “Get Nauti” print, and I’m already obsessed.

Also, I love the durable cover and spiral binding-great for wear-and-tear it’s sure to endure. Inside, the pages are sprawling with space for me to meticulously plan out my days, and they have precious Lily print scattered throughout! I also plan to make great use of the sticker page- there’s one for every occasion! While I haven’t used it to its full potential yet (but I plan to keep you posted), I already love my new planner, and I feel it will keep me large and in charge during this hectic year ahead! I would recommend Lily agendas to any fabulous woman living a fabulously busy life! They come in an array of sizes and patterns, and there is sure to be one for everyone!

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!
