Back to School with Dizzy Lizzie

Recently, I had the opportunity to partner with a company called Dizzy Lizzie for back to school looks. 
Their pieces are polished and perfect for making a statement during the first day of classes.

Today I'm showing you my favorite dress and skirt from their new collection.
I love anything printed, navy, and/or pink so these two pieces definitely stole my heart. 

I paired my skirt with a solid top, a Madewell leather tote, my favorite Lilly Pulitzer agenda, and Tory Burch leather sandals. 
I paired my dress with white Jack Rogers and a vintage Coach leather crossbody and a clutch. 

I love how polished the skirt looks and I'm obsessed with the print!
These pieces were a step away from what I normally wear, but I love how they turned out and fit into my wardrobe. It definitely made me feel collegiate and ready to head back to campus!

It's finally summer for me! I cannot be happier to be out of school and home for the break.

With the warm weather comes swimming, so I have listed my favorite swim suits, and a couple coverups, for this season.

A Day of Croquet

This past weekend, I made it to Annapolis for the annual Annapolis Cup Croquet Tournament.
For those of you who don't know, every April the Mids play the Johnnies in croquet matches all over St. John's lawns. All the Annapolitans break out their Lilly and bowties and make a day of it. 
The Mids always play in their white pants and sweaters, while the Johnnies always surprise the crowd with their outfits. This year, they wore overalls and white jumpsuits. 
Buzzfeed did a great post on the 2014 Annapolis Cup.

It's one of my favorite days of the year because it is usually on a beautiful day, so it finally feels like spring. The town comes alive and everyone dresses to the nines. 
It's basically the Kentucky Derby of Annapolis. 

This year, I chose to wear a Lilly Pulitzer Cathy Shift dress in Southern Charm matched with my Kiel James Patrick pearl necklace and pearl earrings.
I ordered a matching bowtie for my beau from an Etsy shop called Mercy Streams
I have ordered multiple bowties and ties in Lilly Pulitzer Prints from her shop and the service is phenomenal. I would highly recommend her!
Below are some of my favorite pictures from our Day of Croquet:

We had such a great time at croquet and are already counting down the days till Annapolis Cup 2017. Hope to see you there next year!

Koozie Kollection DIY

A couple weeks ago, I found myself drowning in Koozies. 
From sporting events, to rep packages, to birthday gifts, I have koozies from every place imaginable. 

My roommate Kat found a cute way to display koozies from Pinterest.
We did this Pinterest-worthy DIY project in about 10 minutes (which is the perfect study break).

-Painter's tape

If you're looking for koozies, you can find a ton here
(Use code: MORGAN for 15% off)

Rope or twine can be found at Michaels and any thickness should work.
Make sure you use painter's tape if you live in a dorm! It won't pull the paint off the wall. 
We used a white colored painter's tape so that it would blend in with the color of the wall.
Last supply that you need is clothespins! I found mini ones at Michaels.

1) Collect Koozies, gather supplies, and lay the Koozies out in the order you want them to be displayed in. We chose to color-coordinate in a rainbow theme. 
2) Tape up the twine. Make sure that the twine is taped well on the ends and at several parts throughout the line for support. 
 This is very important; if it isn't supported well, then it will fall down.

3) Begin hanging Koozies with clothespins. We pinned one side of the koozie to the twine. 
Make sure to carefully put them up so you don't pull the twine down! 

4) Take pictures! 
Upload the pictures in the comments so I can see how cute your koozie kollection DIY turned out!

Prom Picks

Prom is quickly approaching! 
One of my favorite things to do in high school was search for the perfect prom dress, so this year I knew I wanted to do a prom dress post so I could 'pretend' I was shopping for a dress.

For the 3 proms I attended, I scoured every single online shop and retail store for dresses. 
For sophomore year, I bought mine from a consignment shop.
For junior year, I bought mine in Nordstrom.
For senior year, I bought mine off an Etsy shop based in China and then spent $75 in alterations. Whoops. 


If you haven't found your perfect dress yet, here are some of my favorite picks for Prom divided into four categories: Black & White, Glam, Bold & Boho, and Under $75. 
All of the dresses posted are under $200. 
Scroll through each category to see all of the dresses listed!

Happy Shopping!

Mad about Mint

Recently, I have been obsessing over the color mint green.
I just borrowed some nail polish from one of my best friends that was in this color, and I've been obsessed with it ever since.
After sporting a mint green bathing suit and seeing bright aqua water on Spring Break, I've been inspired by the shades in between mint and aqua and light blue.
I can guarantee you that mint will be in my wardrobe this spring.

Below are some of my favorite outfit pieces in shades of mint and aqua and all the colors in between!

What are some of your favorite mint pieces for Spring?

Cherry Blossoms

This Friday was one for the books.
Earlier this week, my best friend Amanda texted me saying she was thinking about visiting for the weekend. Amanda is my go-to photographer and takes the MOST amazing pictures so I knew I wanted to take her to see the Cherry Blossoms. 

If you are reading this and live anywhere close to DC, drop everything and Metro to Smithsonian to see the Cherry Blossoms right now. I'm not kidding. 
They're in peak bloom and should be for about another week. 
Keep in mind that it's very busy, so the earlier you go, the better.

I couldn't recommend it enough; it's the perfect piece for spring. 
They have over 100 tunics so there are tons of fun prints for all seasons and occasions. 

Below are my pictures from the cherry blossoms.
They turned out antique-looking and super grainy, but I actually love how they look. 

Thanks to Amanda for the amazing pictures and Haley and the Hound for the gorgeous tunic.
Have you ever been to the Cherry Blossom Festival? 
Did you go this year? Let's chat in the comments below!
