My Chic (Past Few) Weeks: September 23- October 13

It seems like forever since my last My Chic Week post- September 23 to be exact. Senior year has definitely been a lot busier than expected, leaving not a lot of time for blogging (which I hate). I'm hopefully to schedule a lot of content for y'all for the coming weeks and be better about getting frequent posts up for y'all!

The past few weeks have definitely been busy so I thought I would share the major events rather than every little detail (because that would be a million years long blog post)!


A few weekends ago, my grandfather and aunt visited to celebrate both of their birthdays. Although it was a quick visit, we went out onto the lake for lunch at one of my family's favorite restaurants. It was still fairly warm so it was nice to spend some time out on the lake before fall temperatures truly set in.


Lately, I have been babysitting a ton, which has been a lot of fun! A few weekends ago, one of the little boys I nanny for and I went on a little walk through the park during Festival in the Park and I couldn't help but get a popsicle from King of Pops (this one was Oreo Cheesecake and was amazing!).



My mom and I also drove down to Greenville, South Carolina to go tour Furman University again (read about my last visit in this post). We stopped at Starbucks in Gaffney to grab some food since it was kind of lunchtime and I had the yummiest pumpkin muffin.


Furman is such a gorgeous campus and we had much better weather than my last visit (which was rainy and cold). Shannon of Prep Avenue (one of my favorite bloggers!) was our tour guide and it was so fun to see Furman again. At Furman, seniors in high school can spend the night with a freshman so I decided I had to stay overnight. I had such a great time getting a little glimpse of college life and made me super excited to go to college next fall!




The day after my Furman overnight I had my senior pictures taken! My photographer send my mom and I a few unedited previews and I'm so excited to see the rest! Definitely expect a post in the future with more of the pictures!


As for school goes, I have submitted five out of my seven college applications and I'm excited to wrap those up! I took my last SAT on October 1st and I'm so relieved to have all of my standardized testing done.

be sure to read my post on how I organize my agenda!

The weather here has finally cooled down a bit and I'm so excited to break out more of my cold weather clothes! I'm excited to transition my closet to fall but here are two recent outfits that will definitely be on repeat in the coming months!

And a fun and kinda random snap from yesterday to round out the post! The little boy I nanny for was all over taking pictures on my phone yesterday and snapped this one while we were swinging on the rope swing in his year- turned out pretty well for a 3 year old! I thought it was too funny not to share!


Be sure to check out this week's posts:


Happy Friday!
