My Chic Week October 23-30

Happy Friday! Is it just me or has this past week been the longest? For me, this week is in-between two short weeks (next week I have a four day weekend, thank goodness!) so it seems about 20 times longer! Not to mention it has been raining like crazy around here, which makes the days seem longer as well!


Last Friday, I had the day off of school so my mom and I took a little trip down to South Charlotte to do some shopping!

my outfit

I headed to Vineyard Vines and Tory Burch before heading to my personal favorite, Lilly Pulitzer. If you have read my blog before you probably know that I love, love, love Lilly Pulitzer! Whenever, I am down in Southpark Mall, I always spend a ton of time in the gorgeous Lilly store! For all of my Charlotte girls, the Lilly renovations are almost complete and they now have 7 dressing rooms (compared to 4 before)!


After shopping at Lilly, we grabbed Chick-fil-a for lunch before heading to a few more stores before heading back home!

The Haul (or damage done to my wallet!)

After my mom and I got back, I ran a few errands (and grabbed a PSL at Starbucks) before just chilling out at home for the rest of the afternoon.

Then on Friday night, one of the girls in my grade had her 17th birthday party, which was Halloween themed. I dressed up as Elle Woods from Legally Blonde and the party was a lot of fun!

 My Costume:



Saturday morning, I slept in and hung around the house before meeting a friend to grab coffee at Starbucks. Our school play was that weekend so a friend and I went and volunteered at the matinee show and were able to see another one of my friends who was in the play perform. After the play, I went home to do a little reading for my AP Lit class before getting ready for Saturday night Mass. After Mass, I ate dinner with my family and just hung around the house and relaxed!

Sunday was full of AP Lit reading and then studying for an APUSH test on Monday!


This week has been pretty crazy for me as I have had multiple tests and quizzes in addition to a lot of reading for my AP Literature class! I also had a few projects due today so it feels like I have been doing assignments non-stop this week. I'm looking forward to the weekend so that I can catch up and hopefully get ahead in my assignments!

On Monday, I had a big AP U.S. History test (it was actually a retake) and I am so happy that I did decently well! After school, I had my Faith Formation class that I teach at my church, which is a great stress reliever especially on a busy Monday night!

Tuesday wasn't all that crazy during the day but that night I had a lot of homework to do, including studying for two different tests the next day. On Wednesday, I had two tests during school and I came home to work on a bunch of projects and homework! Thursday was pretty crazy as I babysat twice that afternoon and also had a plethora of projects to work and reading to do! I am definitely looking forward to the weekend to catch up on some much needed sleep!

On my radar:

1. My homecoming dress just came in the mail and I am OBSESSED! It is so flattering on and the color is gorgeous in person. For sizing, I would recommend sizing down, two sizes if you are shorter!

2. This video of a baby boy running from his "lion" grandpa is so so funny!

3. Re-watching Gossip Girl has given me some major New York wonder lust!

4. Adele just released her first new song in such a long time and, of course, it's amazing!

5. These Pumpkin Spice Blondies look amazing!
