ootd: war eagle



top: vintage aubie from anders bookstore in auburn, circle skirt and shoes: urban outfitters, necklace: francesca's

i don't know if i've made my love for auburn university clear but i love it! it's one of the most beautiful college campuses you'll ever set foot on and the people are just lovely. my grandpa, dad, and big brother went there and after spending a week there this summer for design camp, i'd like to be there next fall more than anything! it's scary to think i could be so far from home but it's just a new part of my life i'm about to jump into after graduation.


here's me and my goofy/hilarious/gorgeous/wild haired/smart/talented friend detzany

how's your fall going? fall is my favorite time of year and i'm ready for the leaves to change and for the temperature change to be permanent here!

xoxo, molly

ootd: god save the queen

  
top: nordstrom, skirt: target, necklace: francesca's

 

i never wear such monochromatic outfits but this is one of my new favorites. the top is really soft and both pieces are really comfy but they look really put together when worn at the same time. the top is supposed to be like a long sleeve crop top and it hits just past the waist. the english flag design on it completely sold me.


 

i've been letting my hair do its own thing these days and i only style it with heat every once in awhile because i'm still trying to grow it out so some days i end up with cool waves like these and some days it looks like a total lion's mane. i think i added a few curls to the front of my hair to give it some shape but besides that it's just natural. i rubbed in a little bit of the watermelon revlon lip butter to create a stain-like look and it's just a little darker than my natural lip color. i think it helped add a little color to my face with such plain colors going on!


what's your opinion on black and white outfits?

p.s. two blog posts in one night? that's right, i'm trying to hide the fact that i've been so busy. is it working?

ootd: weekend trip to miami

a few weeks ago i took a weekend trip to miami to visit my dad and stepmom! if you don't know me in real life, my dad moved to miami at the beginning of july for a multi-visceral transplant of his liver, pancreas, stomach, and small intestine to get rid of his (pancreatic and liver) cancer for good! his surgery took place at the beginning of august when i was just starting school so when i flew out for the weekend it was the first time i had seen him in several months. he is doing well after the surgery (he's the new poster boy at his hospital!) and is at home in miami now but still has a little ways to go before he can return home to dallas (hopefully by christmas!)

first time seeing each other in two months

our miami tradition is to go to shake shack right after they pick me up from the airport because 1) it's so good and 2) we don't have shake shack in dallas. we had a coffee and donuts concrete later on in the week and it was beyond words so good.

one of my aunt and uncle's dogs, gigi. she likes laying on my chest and runs over to me and licks me on my face whenever i sneeze. puppies know the way to my heart.

trying on a dress in francesca's! go and get this dress if you live near a francesca's. it looked so good on, sadly the zipper thought otherwise.

cardigan: american eagle, bralette: nordstrom, top: nordstrom/forever 21, shorts: nordstrom

we took a trip to the beach this day and had a nice little picnic while we were there! things like this make me really wish i lived near a beach because i would be there all the time.



peplum top: target, shorts: old navy, makeup bag: vera bradley
so comfy and still cute and this picture doesn't do a great job of showing that off but i didn't have the best mirror for pictures

salsa fiesta on biscayne blvd in miami is ridiculously good and has one of the best interiors i've ever seen (because that's one of the most important things to me) also i love hand painted skulls and really cool light fixtures so this place was a dream and their food is sooo good.

me and my stepmom's salads at nordstrom bistro in miami. when food looks this good, you have to take a picture of it if you ask me.

miami is the best and i can't wait to go back for thanksgiving!
