My Chic Week: March 17-23

Friday, March 24, 2017

Happy Friday y'all! This week has both dragged on and flown by at the same time- so weird! I'm so excited that it's the weekend- this afternoon, I'm grabbing coffee with a friend and then tomorrow, I'm going to my school's play. I will also be fitting in a few barre classes but y'all probably guessed that haha!

It seems that all of my teachers like to make things due on Fridays so I had a lot of things to turn in but thankfully no quizzes or tests haha!

After school Friday was a bit busier as I started by afternoon off by going to barre. I then stopped home to eat a quick dinner before heading back to school for my school's chapter of NHS's Dance Marathon. I was the treasurer this year for NHS (just "retired" this week) so I was involved in a lot of the planning for the event so it was both exciting and nerve-racking to see it come together. Thankfully, it went well but I don't have any pictures to share with y'all!

Saturday morning, I was able to sleep in a little bit before getting up to get ready and eat breakfast before barre class. After class, I ran home, got a few things done off of my to do list, and ate lunch. I wound up nannying for a few hours Saturday afternoon, which was a lot of fun as I was able to take the sweet baby I nanny for on a long walk because the weather was gorgeous.

Myers Park is one of my favorite parts of Charlotte as all of the houses are historic and simply gorgeous. Perfect spot for an afternoon walk!

After nannying, I headed back home to have dinner with my family and to enjoy a low-key Saturday night.

On Sunday, I didn't have anything planned other than a 3 PM Pure Barre class so I was able to sleep in, which was heavenly. I did't have too much homework last weekend so I finished up what I did have and then spent the rest of the day cleaning and organizing my closet (which is quite the feat haha).

Sunday night, my family celebrated St. Patrick's Day with a corned beef and cabbage dinner with Irish Soda Bread as a side, which was so yummy and the perfect day to end the weekend.

I didn't have too much going on for school on Monday, which I will gladly take haha. After school, I taught my religious education class at my Church and then went to Pure Barre afterwards. I didn't have a ton of homework so I was able to get that done and also work on a few things for the blog.

The only thing I had on my calendar for Tuesday was working after school, which was honestly so nice. I did wind up working a bit later than usual but it was fun to spend some extra time with the kiddos I nanny.

My first part of my Lunch at Lilly order came in on Tuesday as well and I can't wait to style the pieces for blog posts that y'all should hopefully see soon!

Wednesday was a fairly busy day as it started off on the early side since I went to a 6 AM barre class. I had a test in my first period class but thankfully the rest of my classes weren't too crazy. After school, I quickly ate a snack and changed at home before going to a dentist appointment and nannying.

The rest of my Lunch at Lilly order came on Wednesday and I honestly love both the pieces so much- so much so that I wore the leggings yesterday haha!

Thursday was another early morning as I squeezed in another 6 AM challenge for the March 20 class in 31 days Pure Barre challenge. It definitely makes my mornings a bit more hectic but it's so worth it to get a workout in!

Yesterday was thankfully a calmer day at school as there wasn't too much going on but I definitely brightened up my Thursday by wearing my new Lilly shift haha!

I nannied after school and when the little boy I nanny requested a stop at Starbucks, I couldn't turn down an iced coffee haha. The weather has been so nice that I made it iced although the Starbucks did have the cute spring cups in haha!

In case you didn't see it on your Instagram feeds, yesterday was National Puppy Day so I couldn't help but to spend a little extra time with my two puppies yesterday before doing some homework and blog work.

On my Radar This Week:

1. Day Designer just released their mid-year planners and I ordered this one for college this fall- so excited to get to use it! I decided to splurge on a Day Designer after seeing Dorothy's agenda organization post- Day Designers seem perfect for planning and organizing in college!

2. Love this article about how the Plaza is now offering etiquette classes- my mom and I had tea there while we were in New York last spring!

3. My blogger bestie Riley has been killing it this week (she announced where she's going to attend college this fall in one of her posts!!)

4. I just ordered this bikini (top + bottom) from J. Crew for Spring Break (less than 3 weeks!!) and I'm so excited for it to come!

5. My friend Amy shared her five favorite brunch spots in Charlotte and even though I've been to a few of them, I definitely want to try the others on her list (like Fahrenheit and Bourdeauxs)

Happy Friday!


  1. Sounds like a great week! I love spring cleaning my closet- it feels so good to declutter. Definitely going to check out the new Day Designer planners!!
