Velvet & Embroidered

(Coat: MM-Vintage / Jeans: Levi's / Boots: Free People)

And that's all it took, I'm completely set for fall after running up on this dreamy coat. Really though, what are the chances that one piece could literally combine all of my favorite elements into one? The length, the embroidery, the deeply rich, black velvet... It's almost all too good to be true. 

White Out

(Jacket: Lykke Wullf / Pants: Lykke Wullf / Shirt: Free People / Hat: Lack of Color / Shoes: Billy Reid - Similar: here or here / Bag: Vintage - Similar: here or here / Lipstick: MAC)

Like I mentioned on my Instagram, I have been waiting and wishing for the perfect white matching set to come along since years ago when I first saw a picture of Bianca Jagger on her wedding day. Actually, the more I think on it, Bianca was, on multiple occasions, the queen of the white suit, also shown here. And if, even for only a second, I could somehow manage to dip into that attitude and style that she possessed back in the day, then it's fair to say that miracles have happened. All that to be said, a few months ago I was wandering through Instagram and stumbled upon Lykke Wullf, a brand designed and made in L.A., and I felt like I hit the jackpot for fulfilling those Bianca dreams the minute I ran up on this white combo. Granted, this is much more casual than those dreamy creamy suits she wore, but we are talking everyday wear, and alas, I am not Bianca Jagger. So yes, I have a new brand obsession. Every cent spent on these pieces is so incredibly worth it, because, hands down, I have never had a pair of pants fit me as well as these do. And they're white! Which in terms of pants does not always mean the most flattering, but these have converted me. I'm not kidding when I say these pieces are quality, you guys, really and truly. 

The College Years

Maybe it's college football starting back up, or just that enough time has passed that I'm able to sit back and reflect over how my time in Auburn fed me, but whatever the reason, I've suddenly become very reminiscent over the past two years. It's bold to say that these past two years have been the best two years of my life, but I really do mean it. Not to say that I'm one of those people who think it will never get better than college, but my years spent in Auburn surely were special and worth remembering. I grew into who I am, who I want to be, and learned who I want to be around in a way I never had before moving to Auburn. I know there are tons of photos in this post, but, in my opinion, they truly capture the essence of what my time in Auburn looked and felt like. If you really wanna know what my time in Auburn was really like, scroll through these photos while listening to this. To all my friends made over the course of the past two years, may we never forget the good times this tiny town in Alabama gave us.
