Navy & Gold Gameday

This weekend is our first home football game in two weeks, so I wanted to share this easy look for some gameday inspiration!
If you are struggling to find the perfect outfit for gameday just go simple.
Find a solid color dress and throw on a scarf with your team colors!
I originally bought this navy dress to wear with another plaid scarf I own and riding boots, but then this outfit just came to mind!
A versatile, plain dress can be such a staple piece in a girls closet!
Always remember that 🙂

The clutch I am carrying has came in handy so many times! I throw my lipstick, phone, keys, and money into it and just go! The monogramming just spices it up and gives it the perfect personal touch!

Got a dog — dress them up with some school spirit 🙂
Oslo matches me with his GT leash & and collar
(& don’t worry, he has a UK one too)

Favorite Recipes

I think out of all the recipes I have accumulated, I can only really make 3 of them well!
So I know if I can do it, you can too..
So… Here they are 🙂 🙂Buffalo Chicken Dip (all my friends fav)
3 cans of shredded chicken
3/4 bottle of Frank’s Hot Sauce
3/4 bottle of Ranch
(I like to estimate these 2 ^ because more hot sauce gives it a kick, and the ranch dilutes the hot sauce)
3 packages of cream cheese
3/4 bag of Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
*Preheat oven to 375
*Mix in bowl
*Cook for 30 minutes

** I just recently became addicted to the Lime Tostitos! they are addicting!! try them with the chicken dip and you won’t be disappointed!

Potato Soup (with colder weather approaching this recipe is a must)
2 bags of frozen southern style hash browns
2 10 1/2 oz cans Cream of Chick Soup
2 32 oz cartons of chicken broth
1 bag of shredded velvetta cheese
1 tblspn of Onion Powder
1 bag of Real bacon Bits (for topping)
1/2Cream Cheese
*Mix all together in crockpot
*Cook for 6-7 hours
then add 1/2 block of cream cheese until melted

I like to eat my potato soup with a grilled cheese or croissant 🙂

Chicken Tettrazini (cheese and pasta- my fav) 
4 cooked chick breasts
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
2 cups sour cream
2 cups shredded cheese
16 oz. thin spaghetti
*combine sour cream, soup, and cheese with the chicken (shred the chicken first)
*pour this over your cooked spaghetti
*Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes

Some other Notes***
-If you are looking for a cute cooking apron, Etsy has some cute ones!!
-I made my own cookbook! Got the binder from Michaels, and personalized the tabs inside! It’s a great way to organize your recipes to meet your needs/wants & it’s an easy way to add new ones to it!
-For Mother’s Day last year I got my grandma a different cookbook (binder) from Zazzle… I asked her to add all of our family recipes to it so one day, when I am married with kids, I can carry on all of our cooking traditions and infamous recipes!   If you need a gift, I think this is a great idea!

Appreciate Everything, Regret Nothing Tee

SHIRT  |  JEANS  (from Jcrew)
Need I say more?
love these words of wisdom & chose to share them with you today so you start your Monday off on a positive note!
I always like to say, never regret anything, because at the time it was what you wanted.. I feel like it’s so easy to look back on our pasts and easily say, “I wish I wouldn’t have done that” or “I wish I could go back and change that” but if we are being honest with ourselves, we do everything for a reason. Our actions make us who we are today and like my mom says, “we live and we learn”

Hope you all have a great Monday and even better week!!


Crochet & Blue

get the top HERE
I had trouble pairing things to wear with this shirt.. but as soon as I put on the white shorts and white tan I knew I had a winner!
First of all I love this color!!! & I love the fit of the shirt! It’s so easy to throw on & the crotchet is the perfect detail! The top can just speak for itself… no accessories needed!

this is a rather short post today because I have been studying for my last test of the week!
It’s 7:58 here in ATL and now I am off to take it! Wish me luck 🙂


Leather & Leopard

Necklace- I got this one from The Gift Horse in Madisonville, KY but the brand is FORNASH

Leopard & Leather.. can it get any better?
first of all these jeans are sooooo hot.. omg I couldn’t even get them off because I was sweating so much they were sticking to me.. gross I know.. but just had to warn you!  they are going to be so wonderful for winter!! I might live in them when the colder weather arrives!
& these shoes are my new favorite flats! love the pattern and love the studs!

Happy Hump Day y’all!


Plaid Flannel Shirt Dress


DRESS Forever 21  BOOTS & PURSE Tory Burch

I love this dress not only because it’s a great price, but because it is so easy to throw on & super comfortable!!!
You can wear it now with flats, boots, or booties, then in the winter with leggings, tights, and socks!!
I know I am definitely going to get my wear out of this dress, no questions asked!
I am even picturing a white chunky scarf with it or a black infinity scarf– guess it’s time to start shopping again 😉 😉


Doc Martens, Camo, beYOUtiful

SHIRT Piko  |  PANT camo jeans  |  SHOES Dr. Marten’s

How was everyone’s weekend!?
oh my goodness mine was soooooo busy… from Friday on I feel like I never stopped (that’s why I am sharing these pics from a shoot last week)!
Friday & Saturday I went to Music Midtown, at Piedmont Park, and it was an absolute blast!
Friday night we saw Hozier, Elton John, & Drake.
Saturday we watched Hall & Oates, Run the Jewels, Icona Pop, & Sam Smith.. & I could go on & on about Sam Smith all day!! I literally fell in love! He was so wonderful live and if you ever have the opportunity to see him in concert you MUST!!! I think I am still in awe 🙂 🙂 🙂

Anyways I am trying a new trend this fall.. which is camo pants, kinda crazy I know.. but I am totally digging the look!
I got these last year for Halloween and I have ended up getting more wear out of them than I would’ve ever thought!
The shirt is just a simple piko but such a staple piece.. I think we should all own one in a white so you can throw it on with anything.
& how about those boots?? girly, I know… but I love them!
pink is my fav and although they are combat boots, I can’t get enough of them.
I am going to wear them all winter!!! they also have some other cute designs and colored pair available. Maybe check em out 😉

my mom painted the adorable sign for me and I have it hanging in my room
Such a daily reminder to channel your inner beauty and always be yourself!

Happy Monday! Have a great day!


Colorful Colors


This dress is actually a little brighter in person!
It is hot pink, with lime green, dark blue, ,coral, and green! The pops of color just make it stand out!
When I wore it I joked with everyone and said, “you can see me from a mile away.. you know when I am coming”
Growing up my mom use to always dress me in bright colors, so I think that has just carried over to my style today!
I’m not complaining though 😉

**sorry this post doesn’t contain links to the dress.. I have searched for it everywhere and can’t seem to find it.
However the brand is Pixi & Ivy — HERE is a store that carries this line
& HERE are the shoes in Tan (green is sold out)

Also– these color pieces are so cute! Different but I still love them!
if I can find the right thing to wear those shoes with, I am getting them!

She is clothed with strength and dignity; and laughs without fear of the future. – Proverbs 31:25

“A woman’s heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him just to find her” -Max Lucado

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is off great worth in God’s sight. 1 Peter 3:3-4

Gold there is, and rubies in abundance, but lips that speak knowledge are a rare jewel. Proverbs 20:15
