Happy Wednesday y’all! If you had Spring Break last week like I did I hope you had a great one! I was on a cruise ship for most of the week, and then ended my break in New Orleans. It was a bit strange for me to go almost a week without internet access and being completely shut out from the outside world. It was also weird for me to not to have access to social media considering it is a huge part of being a blogger. In one sense it was hard because I am so used to posting all of the time and sharing what I am doing, but on the other hand, it was refreshing to not have to worry about captions and likes and other ridiculous things that social media makes us focus on. There is such a huge obsession with perfection that social media brings out in a lot of people, me especially. I am working on finding a balance with my real life and my social life. That sounds so weird to say considering my real life should be my social life, but with blogging and social media I feel like a lot of people hide behind props and fancy cameras. I for one have a problem with not wanting to post anything when my hair and makeup are not done which is something I want to work on, especially since, insert gasp here, I do not wear makeup or do my hair everyday for class. If you were to see me on campus you would find out that almost everyday my hair is in a braid and the only thing I have on my face is moisturizer. Surprise! There is a quote by Theodore Roosevelt that really goes well with this topic, “Comparison is the thief of joy.” I do not think that this quote could be more true, and as bloggers and social media users we all need to stop comparing ourselves to others and instead use that energy to work hard and grow as individuals. I have been thinking a lot about this subject lately and just wanted to open up a bit with y’all, and I hope you do not mind. Anyways, I will be sharing everything I did for my spring break in next week’s post, but this week I wanted to share with y’all this easy and casual outfit idea that is perfect for spring.
I found this peplum tank last year at Old Navy and it was on sale for only $6. (YEP $6) It was definitely my kind of deal. I mostly only shop sale items and love finding good deals! I plan on making a post soon all about how I shop and save money. Let me know if that is something you would like to read! I linked a similar tank for y’all that is under $40 since mine is from last summer. I am also usually drawn to dark wash denim, but this lighter wash pair was perfect to pair with my white tank top and white Converse. I cannot recommend denim from American Eagle enough, seriously. I have had all of my denim from there for at least two years and each pair is still going strong. (I am not getting paid to say this fyi, I just love the company that much) I love how crisp and clean this outfit looks and I will definitely be wearing it again this spring. As always, you can shop this look by clicking on the links above, or by scrolling through the images below!
