Must Have Monday: April 20, 2015

Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a great weekend, filled with brunching and laughs with friends. This week seems like it's going to be relatively calm, but let's be honest, that never happens. So here's to getting started on a busy week. 


Yes, I'm well aware that a certain former Florida Gator is going to be signing with the Eagles this week. But I don't really care. Today was the Boston Marathon. What an incredible story to be a part of. I can't even imagine running in that race, or the amount of pride that city has because of everything that happened there. After completing my first half-marathon I said never again, but I keep going back to run. I think that's a lot of how Boston feels. It's in their blood. So congratulations to everyone who ran and completed the Boston Marathon!

Social Media: 

You guys know I love Karlie Kloss, and if you didn't now you do. Her Instagram game is on point and really gives you that sense that you are traveling the world and doing awesome things with her. She's super open about what's going on in her life and what her new projects are, like #KodeWithKarlie. She's definitely worth the follow, and you never know who's going to pop up in a photo.

Right now I'm loving graphic tees. In fact, my best friend/stylist bought me a really cool one from Target. I paired it with a black pencil skirt, black heels, bright bag, and a statement necklace and that was the perfect outfit for church then going out after. 

I also really love this outfit for just going out with friends over the weekend, or hanging out at home. I think the best thing about graphic t-shirts is how versatile they really are. 


With summer basically here in Florida (because it never really leaves in the first place) and knocking on doors in other areas, long hair gets hot. That's why I went for the chop. I channeled my inner Lauren Conrad and cut off a majority of my long locks. I have super straight, thick hair so the cut was the easy part. The hard part is always getting it to look how it did the day I left the hair dresser's. I'm loving that model Rosie Huntington Whiteley also went for the lob look recently, because she's beautiful! 


Right now I'm really loving a no fuss look. So five products or less, including a foundation I can blend with my fingers, and an eyeliner that can be smudged out as an eyeshadow.  The thing with this five product look is that you have to be super confident in the products that they are going to stay put all day, and they don't really need to be set with other products. Look out later this week for my five product face look. 


I've rediscovered my love for the album RED by Taylor Swift over the past few weeks. And while the song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" (like ever!) is a great sing-a-long song for a road trip, there are some songs on the album that deserve a ton of praise! My favorite is "Begin Again."


Can we just talk about how cute Lane is?!


If you're looking for a great happy hour spot, look no farther than Hawkers in Five Points. (That is, if you live in Jacksonville.) They have a huge selection of things to eat, most of them for under $5, and the drink specials are really good too. Even if they don't have something you like on special, the regular prices of drinks aren't bad. I usually don't like Chinese, Japanese, or other types of Asian food, but I like Hawkers. They have a really good pad thai, and my mom loves their spring rolls. 


Well that's it for this week's Monday Must Haves. If you try any of these things out let me know in the comments. Like this post if you think Monday's get better as summer gets closer.
