August Favorites

I definitely say this every month but I cannot believe we are already in September. It feels like yesterday that it was the start of the summer and now we only have 3 more months left in 2017 (???).

If you're new to Chic in Carolina, I share my favorites from the month before at the start of each month (as you probably guessed by the title of this post...) and it's a fun way to share with y'all what I have been loving lately. I always love reading these on other blogs so I hope y'all feel the same way.

August was definitely a big month for me as it was my last few weeks working as a nanny for the summer and being at home, moving into college, going through sorority recruitment and joining Theta, as well as getting adjusted to college life. I have a lot more favorites than usual because of that and I'm already excited to see what September's favorites will be, especially with the temperatures starting to cool down a bit.


Tory Burch Crossbody Bag (similar)- My siblings gave me this purse for my birthday this year and I've been using it so often here at Clemson. I'm typically a big purse type of a girl (I shared my purse collection in this blog post) but it's nice to have a smaller bag for going out to dinner or when I don't need a lot with me. Plus, it's small enough to bring in the stadium for game day!

Lime La Croix- I went to Publix a few weeks back to stock up on some essentials and this Lime La Croix is definitely a favorite. I know I'm definitely not sharing anything new here but this is such a good essential to keep in the dorm, especially if you're like me and don't drink soda!

Lululemon Running Shorts- I bought these shorts on a whim while shopping with one of my friends before we left for school and I can't tell y'all how often I wear them. They're so comfortable and are great for switching it up from my usual norts. They run a bit short so I wound up buying them in a tall to get a little more length (I'm 5'7).

My Pink & Green Garden Monogram Pillow (c/o)- Irene of My Pink & Green Garden sent me a few goodies for my dorm and I am obsessed with this pillow especially. I'm planning on sharing a dorm tour soon but I love the pop of print it adds to my dorm!

Ray Ban Aviators (similar)- These aren't exactly a new favorite but I have been loving them this month so I figured I would share. These were actually my mom's but she has uses other sunglasses so she gave them to me. They got super stretched out so I couldn't wear them but I finally got them fixed at the mall before heading to Clemson and I now wear them all the time. Definitely a staple in a preppy girl's wardrobe!

Donut Shop K Cups- My roommate got a Keurig for our dorm for Christmas last year so I stocked up on K Cups to use. I picked up these ones from Costco (I literally have 100 of them) and they are so good. Plus, you can't beat the convenience of a Keurig!

Victoria Secret Lotion- One of my friends actually gave me this for graduation (along with the coziest blanket) and I've gotten so much use out of it. The consistency is really thick and it makes your skin feel so soft.

Lilly Pulitzer Robe- This may be one of the most silly things I've spent money on but it makes me feel so glamorous. I needed a robe for college and decided to splurge on the Lilly robe as I have loved it since they were released last year. My roommate loves to (jokingly) make fun of me for it but it makes sitting around in your pajamas or getting ready for the day feel more fabulous and who wouldn't want that?
