      Happy Monday! I have officially survived the first week of the two busiest weeks of my semester. Last week was Greek Week at school, and my sorority had lots of events to attend. This was all in addition to finishing up my Capstone project for my major (I turned in the official rough draft of the paper on Sunday afternoon!), and plenty of other assignments and things on my to-do list. In adulting news, my bed was also delivered to my new apartment on Saturday! Only a few more weeks of dorm room living- I can't even believe it! This week the craziness continues. It's is Senior Week in ADPi, and my last week as an active collegiate member of my sorority. We conclude this week of events with our annual Black Diamond formal. And I'm also presenting my Capstone project this Wednesday- so send good vibes and prayers my way! 

      This was a fun spring casual outfit that I wore out to dinner a couple of weekends ago when my friend Cara from Caralina Style was in town. I think that this outfit combines so many of the popular trends for this season: off-the-shoulder tops, tassel necklaces, and relaxed/boyfriend fit style jeans! Jeweled sandals might not necessarily be a "new" trend for 2016, but they're something that I've personally enjoyed wearing in warmer months for many years now, and plan to continue wearing for years to come! 

     What spring trends are you enjoying pairing together?

     A couple of very affordable off-the-shoulder top options are linked below!
