Weekly Whistle: College Orientation Outfit + Beauty Giveaway


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Yesterday, I attended freshman orientation at Northeast State Community College in Blountville, Tennessee, and it was absolutely amazing! I got my fall term schedule…my student ID…and a microwave from my mom and dad for tackling orientation sans parents.

The Northeast State Blountville campus is so beautiful and  full of wonderful professors + it has a killer Mass Communications and Theater department…the more I talk about it, the more excited I become. Whoo hoo–E! News or Vogue here I come *wink* 

Okay, that is enough college chat–there will be plenty of time for that once fall term rolls around *wink* Now, let’s take a look at the outfit details about what I wore to college orientation + why it works.

Blouse: Deep South Pout

Shorts: J.Crew, The Outlet Shops of Grand River

Belt: American Eagle

Sandals: Born, DSW (Birmingham, Alabama)

Why it works:

This outfit worked perfectly for college orientation because it was comfy yet totally cute. I could have worn Nike shorts and a tank top and would have been comfortable, BUT I wanted to make a fashionable impression. And what better way is there to do that than by dressing cutely in bright hues! *wink*



Guess what?! The VIP has a spectacular surprise beauty giveaway happening RIGHT NOW on the VIP Facebook page! Click here for more details and to enter! Good luck!

Frugal Friday: A Trip to Sephora + Happy Birthday, Mom!


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Happy Friday, y’all! Also…happy birthday to my mom–the coolest mom EVER *wink* 

I am going to keep this week’s Frugal Friday brief because I still have yet to make my mom’s gluten-free brownie cake–as she requested–and I have to rest up for the Kingsport Art Crawl tomorrow! Oh, goodness….what shall I wear?!

I digress…This week’s Frugal Friday is all about an outfit I created by shopping in my own closet–take a look:


Blouse: Deep South Pout (click here to see other ways I’ve worn this dime of a top *wink*)

Skirt: Molly Green Boutique (click here to see other ways I’ve worn this fabulously floral frock)

Heels: BCBG (These were actually my mom’s shoes–she bought them several years ago–it’s safe to say these heels were a classic buy *wink*)

Mom and I totally failed at our attempt to get the Sephora sign in our selfie...our luck--it's backwards *wink*

While shopping at Sephora in Johnson City, I picked up a lip gloss for the slamming price of $1.99–now, that’s a frugal buy! To make it even better–it’s universal pink…my favorite *wink*

Stay tuned to Beauty Tues in the coming weeks to find out the other awesome things I purchased + mini tutorials! Yay!

Now, readers, I am off to make gluten-free brownie cake in celebration of my mom’s 20th birthday *wink*
