Blue and White Gingham

I'm back! So sorry for the little hiatus I've taken over the past few days. I had no intention of taking a small blogging break but as my semester came to an end and everything fell into place somehow it felt necessary. I am excited to share more about how senior year is wrapping up soon but first we have a very important matter to discuss.... this top. You may be thinking that it looks really familiar and you would be correct considering I purchased it in two different colors due to how perfect it is for summer. Since I already gushed over the pink version in this post we can stick to how versatile it is here. 

While I paired the pink version with jean shorts I can not get enough of white jeans lately and was naturally drawn to them as I seem to be drawn to everything blue and white. It seems as though this may be another summer of my closet's color scheme being blue and white and I certainly am not complaining. While I paired this ensemble with tan sandals it would be equally as cute with some summer wedges to dress things up a bit. The elastic around the top of this shirt, its flow silhouette, and of course the bow back make it lightweight and not too hot for those humid summer nights at the beach.

This top was just so good I HAD to share it twice although if gingham isn't your thing the seersucker version is equally as cute. Since I have some free time at the beginning of next week I wanted to know if there was any specific content y'all were hoping to see on PIYS soon. Let me know below and I will talk to y'all very soon.

Step Into My Week

Today is a bittersweet day as it is my last full day with my fourth graders. Although I've already decided that I am going to go back and visit them either at the end of this week or next week it is weird to think about not spending every week day with them. I'll share more on that next week but for now we will focus on last week. 

Nothing too big to report on from during the week however on Saturday I had my last KD Spring Formal. Formals have always been a fun part of being a member of a sorority and it was nice to have ours relatively late in the school year. I took one of my friends, John, which was fun and the weather was so nice! Get ready to scroll though since there are a lot of pictures! 

Last night we had our KD senior banquet. We go to an event venue and eat dinner, hear our senior superlatives, and spend time as a chapter. It was pouring down rain which was kind of a bummer but was overall a really sweet last thing to do as a collegiate member of KD. 

Hope y'all enjoyed all of those pictures and that your week is off to a great start already!

Spring Nail Polish Favorites

If you asked my mom, the last thing she'd say I need more of is nail polish. She is convinced that I have all of the colors already and couldn't possibly need *another* pink. In a way she is right but any other nail polish lovers out there would probably agree that all of the different shades and colors that are released each season are ones you can't help but want to add to your collection. 

I've never really thought about it before but in a way you could definitely say I have my own little nail polish collection going. Maybe it's not the most practical collection but as far as collections go at least it is relatively affordable. I have so many nail polishes that each season I switch out which ones I have out in my room in the monogrammed holder I have. I think my favorite colors I own are my springing summer shades so I couldn't help but want to share those with you! 

As far as nail polish brands go I am pretty brand conscious. There is something about Essie's formula, colors, names, and bottle design that makes it my favorite. If anyone knows how to get a job as a nail polish namer you know who to call! I have included my favorites in the photo above and the ones below for you to see the various shades in case you're in the market for a new shade or two. 

I have listed them by row (front to back) and then left to right within each row. I think if I had to choose an all time favorite color it would have to be Essie's Fiji. It is the perfect light pink color and I just had to get a new bottle for Easter to replace my almost empty one. I am pretty sure it is the only nail polish color I've ever had to replace due to using it up instead of losing it.

come here! // cute as a button // status symbol // bachelorette bash
absolutely shore // boxer shorts // bikini so teeny // virgin snow 

So there you have it, my favorite nail polish colors for the season! I'd love to hear which are your all time favorite nail polish colors!

Pink Gingham Off The Shoulder Top

I promise I'll have a more informative post up tomorrow but with all of the cute spring pieces out now  I couldn't help but share this cute top with y'all! I feel like off the shoulder is going to be the silhouette of the season since it seems to be everywhere and all the pieces I am tempted to add to my cart sport this style! Shockingly enough that isn't even what first draw me to this cute top. 

I've always had a special place in my heart for gingham after my childhood bedroom had a gingham bedspread. The large sized squares on this shirt make a statement but don't overcrowd it but the real kickers comes with the back. The open back tied together with a bow was just too cute to pass up that I may have gotten this shirt in two different colors. 

While I've tried it on with white jeans and jean shorts I couldn't help but complement the feminine style of this shirt with these white ruffle shorts. If you tuck something into them they have the cutest ruffle at the top that is carried down the sides to the pockets as well. While it's subtle I love when clothes have fun and unexpected details like these shorts and this top!

I hope it's a little less rainy where you are! I am not loving the little drizzle we've been getting here but we are half way through the week so I am sure I'll manage just fine!
