My Chic Week: March 18-24

Happy, happy, happy Friday! It is finally Spring Break and I cannot wait for lots of Easter celebrations and beach time this weekend! As always, I will be sharing what I'm up to in next week's post but be sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter for everything Chic in Carolina that's up to date :)


As I mentioned in last week's My Chic Week, Friday was a crazy day for me. I had three different tests during the day, which definitely wasn't the highlight of my day! After school, I nannied and then wrote an essay that was due that night! Thank goodness I'm on spring break now!

Saturday was a super fun day! I started on a laid back note as I read two books for AP Literature in bed before my hair appointment, which was around lunchtime. I adore getting my haircut and it was getting to the point where my hair was getting desperate for a cut!

The real fun part of the day was meeting up with a few other Charlotte/North Carolina bloggers at the Charlotte Premium Outlets. I have met Annaliese before (we met up for sweets and coffee, which y'all can read about in this post) but it was my first time meeting Brittany, Sarah, Cara, Courtney, and Morgan! We had such a fun time shopping and it was so fun chatting about "blogger" things like Instagram, weird Instagram comments we have had, and our favorite bloggers! I had such a great time and can't wait for our next meetup in May!


How adorable are these "blogging day" mugs at Francesca's? We, of course, had to take a picture with them because what screams blogger more than a cute coffee cup (that of course says blogging on it)?





I bought these wedges at the meetup and my Design Darling print for my room redesign (which you see the inspiration behind it here) came in on Sunday! Can you sense a trend? #navyornothing

Sunday was another busy day! I went to Mass, shot pictures for the blog, and then headed to a college fair in downtown Charlotte. After the college fair, I made a necessary stop at Starbucks and then worked on a Pre Calc project and blog posts in the afternoon!


Monday was quite a busy day for me as I had a college meeting for one of my top choice colleges during school and then a bunch of projects to work on along with a bunch of studying to do after school! I also had my last Faith Formation class before Easter, which is super exciting!


We just wrapped up a novel about Ecuador in my Spanish class last week, so on Monday night I made these Ecuadorian Sweet Rolls. They were definitely time consuming but very yummy and who can say no to homework that involves baking!


Tuesday was definitely less of a busy day for me as it was the last full day of school before Spring Break and all my classes have been wrapping up before break begins! Luckily, that meant I had barely any homework Tuesday night! Since I didn't have a lot to do for school, I nannied and then worked on blog stuff before heading to bed early!

Wednesday morning, I got to school earlier than usual as we had a Pancake Breakfast for Service Committee. My morning started off on a hectic note as I realized my alarm was set for PM not AM. But other than that, my day was fairly simple as we had barely anything to do in my classes and then I had a meeting after school ended. During my meeting, I also found out that I am going to be the Vice President of Service Committee (I've been a member all of my years of high school and currently am the secretary), which I am so excited about!

After my meeting wrapped, I headed home to have some Chick-fil-a for lunch and then to pack as well! I nannied that afternoon and then finished packing later that night!


Thursday morning was another early wakeup call as we got up bright and early to head down to Florida and to beat all of the traffic! Our trip was fairly smooth and we arrived at my grandparents's in the early afternoon, which meant there was plenty of time to hang out by the pool! Later in the afternoon, we headed to the beach, which was so nice!



On my Radar this week:

1. Lilly Pulitzer New Arrivals! Need I say more? And there's Gifts with Purchase until Sunday!

2. Love this article that Annaliese shared about the success of Caitlin's blog, she is one of my favorite bloggers and lives here in Charlotte!

3. LOVE this nautical inspired outfit from Carly!

4. Be on the lookout for even better pictures here at Chic in Carolina! I used my mom's camera for Tuesday's Post and loved how it turned out! It's not a DSLR (investing in one of those is on my 101 in 1001 list) but it's definitely a step up from iPhone pictures!

5. Kate Spade's sale section is on sale with code HOPTOIT until Monday! A few of my favorites are this purse, this dress, this belt, this earring set, this scarf, and this wallet!

Be sure to check out my posts from this past week:


Happy Friday and Happy Easter!
