Guys it’s literally October, I don’t know how we got here! I’m excited though because it’s my favorite outfit season! This past weekend I spent some time in South Carolina with my best friend and my second mother wedding dress shopping, She found her dream dress and now so have to keep that secret for a year, so help me God. Then we did the most epic shoot for her boutique! If you haven’t bought something from Shopjojo’s you’re seriously missing out! Also, right now she’s having a end of summer sale so get in there while everything is still available!
As many of you know mean girls day was 2 days ago and Ofcourse I’m fashionably late, but don’t worry I wore my pink on October 3rd and now you’ll have your chance too. The “you can’t sit with us” skirt dropped on October 3rd and is the perfectttt little skirt for fall. As a child I hated Corduroy, and my mum loved putting me in it. I can honestly say now at 23 this skirt is the best corduroy anything to have touched my body! It’s so soft and versatile and perfect to wear with booties! You can dress it up or you can pair it with the southern belle crop top just like I did! (My hips are 39 inches and I’m wearing a size small for reference!) it fit me pretty snug, but I have a small waist so it was perfect for me!
Keep in mind orders over $75 all qualify for free shipping. Happy fall y’all !
Who would’ve thought they’d see the day I was wearing color? My best friend that’s who.
These pants from express were perfect! I wore them to a job interview and whilst I didn’t get the job, I did have the wow factor and get a lot of compliments. Crop pants are clearly in this season, the job I did get has so many varieties of these pants in so many different colors that you’ll see me in them all autumn. So I’m going to link these bottoms here, and some similar ones here (also available in tan).
Mothers Day is right around the corner and if you haven’t gotten your gifts yet, you’re a little behind but never fear, my gift guide is here. From jewelry all the way down to flowers I’ve got you covered with ideas.
When I was younger me and my siblings would save up all of our lunch money to get my mum whichever gift we picked out, she was always surprised no matter what we showed up with. We also used to make her a handmade card because we knew it was her favorite. Now we’re older and can spoil her I take pride in trying to find something she’ll love, but you can truly never get your mother anything that compares to the love she has given you over the years.
I hope you guys enjoy the guide! I can’t reveal till later what I got for my mother as she’s probably reading this right now (Hi mama), you’ll see it on your day! What are some cute mothers day traditions you guys have?! and have you already gotten your gifts?!
New blog handle, new look! I did tell you guys on my Instagram the other day that I was under construction, so now I can officially tell you guys I’ve ditched squarespace for wordpress and my own handle! This site has so many more changes to go through but for right now, i’m content. As you guys can see, I’ve also loaded all my past content up here as well!
The real reason for this post however, is because I wanted to show of my new pieces from shopjojo’s! Everything I’ve gotten from this boutique I love. You could say i’m biased because it is owned by my best friend, she knows me better than anyone and you can ask her because if I truly didn’t love these pieces, I wouldn’t talk about them. I recently ordered the ‘Southern Belle crop top‘ and the ‘Spring Fling skort in lavender‘
This crop top literally goes with anything an it’s so dang cute! I can pair it with my skort, or any skirts or shorts this summer honestly and even my flared jeans! I consider this one of those cute basic necessities you should have in your closet to dress up or dress down. I’m wearing a size small in the top, if you have slightly bigger arms or work out a lot like I do, I recommend sizing up, the arms on mine are a little snug but i’m comfortable with it, if you’re worried, size up. The Lavender skort is somewhat more of a statement for me, I don’t have anything in this color and often stray from color because i’m a plain Jane but thank god I got it! I love everything about it. I wear a size small and it fits like a glove. Now i’m little but I have a booty and I have no issue. The lace detail is the perfect little twist, I love love love it.

Spring has sprung! While it may be cloudy and damp outside right now and, only 46 degree’s I’m so excited for the warmer weather coming and all the flowers already blooming!
Today I wanted to share some of the pieces I have my eye on right now! I’ll be sure to attach links so you guys can shop them too. I am currently loving the espadrille platforms because honestly I love a good versatile shoe and I can see myself wearing it all spring and summer. I’ve also had my eye on a cool floral romper and wrap dress, one a little bit more muted and crisp that I can style up and the other you can go either way, dress it up or down but the pop of color is necessary! An off the shoulder look is a must have I feel like, they aren’t always the most functional but they are cute. Lastly, I started seeing this bamboo bag making an appearance last year, I hated it…it has grown on me so much, I don’t know why I hated this poor bag in the first place because it is literally perfect for the warm beach days and Summer vacations ahead.
I see some spring cleaning in my near future, it’s definitely time for me to put some pieces up on my poshmark and make space for new items.Be sure to follow me on instagram (@ArdeenAleena) as i’ll post my poshmark there along with the new items! I hope everyone is having a lovely spring so far, drop a comment below on some of your spring must haves!
