My Chic Week: May 19-25

Friday, May 26, 2017

Happy Friday y'all! This week was my first full week of summer as my last day of class was a week ago today and I was lucky enough to not have any exams to take. The family I nanny for was out of town this week as well so I really had the week off so my week was full of fun plans and, of course, lots of Pure Barre classes.

With it being Memorial Day weekend, this weekend is a busy one as I have a pool party this afternoon as well as one of my best friend's graduation parties tonight and my cousins are coming into town tomorrow. Of course, I'll be sharing more in next week's My Chic Week post (be sure to catch up on my entire "My Chic Week" series here) but for now, let's catch up on this week!

Friday was my last day of high school, which is so crazy haha! Hard to believe it's already been a week! We had super short classes in the morning before an awards ceremony and then lunch. My grade watched our senior video during lunch, which was so fun as it really wrapped up the last four years of high school.

After lunch, we had yearbook signing and then a bubble soccer tournament where everyone pretty much signed yearbooks. I nannied for a few hours Friday afternoon and we went to Starbucks for a cake pop (for the 4 year old I nanny) and coffee (for me!) to celebrate my last day of school!

I shared this photo from my senior pictures on Friday to celebrate my last day of class- it's definitely one of my favorites!
After a busy last few weeks of school, I had a lot of errands and random things like that to catch up on so after sleeping in and going to a barre class, I ran a few errands, including ordering some monogramed stationary for graduation (did you read yesterday's post all about thank you notes?) and picking up graduation presents for friends.

I wore these darling J. Crew striped leggings that I got during my trip to Chicago on Saturday and they are so comfortable and cute- perfect for barre class and running errands. I wore them with my Jacks because you only need sticky socks for barre!

My mom and I went to church Saturday night before heading back home to watch the Preakness with the rest of my family.

Sunday was a pretty laid back day as I caught up on blog related items and went to another barre class. My sister's birthday was on Friday but we wound up celebrating on Sunday as a family as she had friends over on her birthday so we had a yummy dinner and then had cake to celebrate.

Monday was my first official day of summer and I didn't have too much going on so I used it as a day to catch up on the blog and a few other things that I ignored in the last few weeks of school. I was able to sleep in a little bit before making myself breakfast and then working on some blog work (including catching up on my Bloglovin' feed). I went to my favorite noon Pure Barre class and then went to Whole Foods afterwards for a quick lunch. I couldn't resist picking up some gorgeous flowers while I was at Whole Foods and then I had one other errand to run before heading home.

I wound up picking my brother up from school Monday afternoon, which was honestly kind of weird doing that while being finished with classes. My mom and I walked the dogs in the afternoon and I worked on Tuesday's blog post before showering and watching the Bachelor.

Tuesday morning, I was up somewhat early (7, which is early for summer haha!) so I could eat breakfast before going to a Pure Barre class.

My friend Renee of Gimme Glamour and I grabbed lunch on Tuesday and it was so much fun catching up with her as it had been a few months since we last caught up. The weather was pretty miserable all day but we had such a fun time!

Tuesday's OOTD: old Lilly tee ⎢J. Crew shortssimilar Hunter rain boots

I babysat for a few hours on Tuesday night, which was a lot of fun as we went out for pizza and got frozen yogurt afterwards!

Wednesday morning started a bit on the early side as I had a doctor's appointment in the morning. Nothing too exciting haha!

I originally had plans to go to one of my favorite coffee shops in the city with one of my friends but she wound up having to work at the last minute so we had to reschedule our plans. This wound up working for me as I was able to go to a barre class at noon and then get some things for the blog done before going to pick my brother up from school.

My top is old from Beyond Yoga but I got these Lululemon leggings for my birthday and love them!

I also signed up for housing for this fall on Wednesday, which was so nerve-racking. Thankfully, it was relatively easy and my roommate and I got a room in our first choice dorm, which makes me so much more excited for this fall!

In honor of signing up for housing and picking my room, I shared a throwback to my bedroom redesign that I shared on the blog last summer on Instagram. I'm so excited to decor my dorm and, of course, share it with y'all!

I received this face cleanser and face scrub as samples from Sephora but I really love them so far! I linked the full-size version as I know I will definitely be buying the face scrub once I run out!

My mom and I went shopping at Southpark Mall yesterday and, of course, our first stop was Lilly Pulitzer to shop their Splash into Summer event. My mom and I both got some really cute pieces and the gifts with purchases were too cute to pass up!

Thursday's OOTD: my top and skort are old Lilly but these Tory Burch Millers are my go-to in the spring and summer!

After shopping at Lilly, I headed over to Nordstrom while my mom looked in another store as the Nordstrom in Southpark just started carrying Reese Witherspoon's Draper James line. I've followed the brand since the start but this was my first time seeing their pieces in person and let me tell y'all, they're gorgeous! I had a Nordstrom gift card from my birthday so I decided to buy this top and I cannot wait to wear it!

I've been saving up for a while and I made a big purchase yesterday: a Louis Vuitton Speedy! I've been wanting this bag for years but I have been saving for a while so I could purchase it as a graduation gift to myself. I'm low key obsessed and will be planning to share a more in depth post of why I decided to buy a Speedy!

My mom and I then went to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch and then went to one more store before heading back home.

After picking my brother up from school, I went to Pure Barre. It's my studio's anniversary this week and yesterday was 80's Day so I sported a very neon outfit to class haha. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me saying that my class only had five people in it, which made it a bit more interesting haha!

On my Radar:

1. Lilly Pulitzer's Splash into Summer event is still going on and ends on Sunday night! The gift with purchases this year are so cute and this event is always so fun to shop in store. I shared my current Lilly Pulitzer favorites in Tuesday's post in preparation for the event so definitely check that out if you haven't already!

2. Even though I'm far from being a full-time blogger, I thought Julia's post on her daily schedule as a full-time blogger was so interesting!

3. Obsessed with all of the pictures from Pippa Middleton's wedding- I seriously love her wedding dress!

4. My friend Annaliese shared a personal post on her blog on Monday and I loved how honest and well-written it was!

5. My Tory Burch Minnie Flats are on sale- such a good deal as I wear mine all the time and they're so comfy

Happy Friday!
