Instaglam

{ my beautiful campus }

This week has been a crazy one for me. 
With finals just around the corner and LDOC next Friday (Last Day Of Classes), I am in panic mode.
I've been super stressed lately and wasn't able to get in an outfit post today, so I thought I should share a few life snaps from my instagram and other shots that I've taken in the past couple of days.

Hope your week is going better than mine!

Hanes Hosiery


This week, I realized that this pink lace collared dress still existed in my closet. 
So without further ado, I put it on, added these Hanes Hosiery Sunkissed Silk Reflections tights, and threw my hair up in a messy sock bun because my thick hair is not a big fan of hot weather.

I love how the nude bronze hose doesn't make a noticeable difference and adds a bit of a 'tan' to my legs. It's also perfect for wedding season. And speaking of... Hanes is helping you get ready for wedding season with their Save the Date Sanity Sweepstakes on their Facebook page from April 1-April 25th. The grand prize winner will win $1,000 and a drawer full of tights valued at over $250. 
So enter away!

Blush Tones + TopShop Event


I am loving soft blush tones for Spring. 
Ever since Ginger Melton and I went shopping at the Streets of Southpoint in Durham, I've been swooning over her blush-tone shoes. How perfect are the lucite heels? I. Die.
P.S. How perfect is Amber of Barefoot Blonde who wore them here + here.
