August Favorites

I feel like I always say this in my monthly favorites but I am honestly in disbelief that it's September as August flew by! It was a super busy month as I enjoyed a trip to my family's lake house in Upstate New York, spend some time at home, went to the beach with the family I nanny for, and started my senior year of high school (which you can read all about in my "My Chic Week" posts).

On the first weekday of every month, I always share my favorites from the month before which vary from clothing purchases to beauty buys to fun accessories to foods I've been loving and more!



Monogram Acrylic Desk Organizer- Even though I finished my room redesign earlier this summer, I couldn't help but pick up this darling piece from Mackenzie Horan's boutique. I use it to store my agenda and to-do lists and it makes my desk look a bit more pretty!

Pita Chips (image via)- Totally random, but I have been on such a pita chip kick this month. My favorite is Stacy's Simply Naked, so yummy and such a good snack!

Lilly Pulitzer Agenda- If you have been following Chic in Carolina, you know that I love my Lilly agendas! I got the jumbo for this year and have already used it so much to keep track of college applications, meetings, homework, barre classes, and doing things with friends. I am definitely going to be posting a blog post all about it soon but in the meantime, check out how I organized last year's agenda!

Navy Chino Shorts- I've needed a pair of navy chinos for quite a while and finally bit the bullet while at J. Crew last week (which you can read about here). I bought them on sale and have already worn them a few times!

theSkimm- I've heard about theSkimm before but just signed up a few weeks ago. Y'all, I already love it! I have to admit that I'm not the most informed when it comes to current events and politics but theSkimm breaks everything you need to know down into easy to follow emails. I had a current events quiz in Gov the other day (to see how much we have been paying attention to the news over the summer) and I was surprised to learn that I knew most of the answers from reading theSkimm!

Instagram Stories- Instagram released their new Stories feature while I was in New York and I honestly love it. Y'all probably noticed that I don't have Snapchat (I don't even have a personal Snapchat) but I have been loving sharing more behind the scenes content this way! Be sure to follow me on Instagram so you can see my stories!

Nature Valley Granola Bars (image via)- I have always been a granola bar fan and these are my latest favorite. They are a bit messy (I definitely don't recommend eating these and driving, it will get all over your car) but so yummy!

LePens- After hearing one of my favorite bloggers, Dorothy, gush about how amazing these pens are, I decided to order them to use in my agenda. I've been using them to color code and they have been perfect so far!

Starbucks Iced Vanilla Latte at Home- I found this on a whim while in Walmart in Upstate New York (of all places) and it's so good! It tastes just like the Iced Vanilla Latte in stores. They don't carry it in my local Harris Teeter but I will definitely be looking in Target for it!

Seersucker Bikini- I have always loved this seersucker bikini from J. Crew and I finally bought it this summer! I have worn it so much this month and I know I will be wearing it this upcoming weekend for Labor Day festivities!

  1. I can't believe it is already September as well! Summer is coming to an end. I have been loving my navy chino shorts as well, probably my most worn pair this summer!

    1. It's so sad although I am excited for PSLs and riding boots! I absolutely love mine, such a staple!
