March Favorites!

It's the last weekend in March and you know what that means; it's time for my monthly favorites! March has been a whirlwind with tests, papers, Spring Break plans and more, but I've been making it a little easier with these ten items.

1. Nike Free 5.0+ Running Shoes

I’ve been trying to get to the gym as much as I can recently to help get ready for spring break. I love these shoes and they fit really well, this coming from someone who has struggled fitting into most running shoes.

2. Pinterest Explore

I'm already a Pinterest addict, but this has kept me on the site even more. I'm loving this new feature from Pinterest. If you haven’t used it, Pinterest Explore pulls interests based on what you pin and lets you view things in that category. This has really helped me when I want to view pins on a certain topic and pin from there.

3. Chambray Shirts

We all know that jeans go with nearly anything, but don't we need a versatile top piece as well? I’ve been wearing chambray button ups very often recently with the winter-to-spring transition. They can be, as you know I love, dressed up or down and can be paired with all kinds of jewelry.

4. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Anyone who knows me knows my obsession with this movie, and thank the lord it's on Netflix. I’ve been watching it so much recently and it has easily become my favorite movie. Audrey Hepburn is the definition of class, and makes me want to throw my hair in a French twist and stroll down Fifth.

5. Wild Eggs

Lexingtonians- this is a must. This new breakfast restaurant in Palomar Center is worth the wait, and oh, is it a wait! Since it’s brand new, the restaurant has at least an hour wait most of the time. If you can stand it, you’re in for a treat. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and Wild Eggs did not disappoint. Try the hot chocolate!

6. Dutch Braids

I talked about Dutch braids in my morning rush post “I Woke Up (Ten Minutes Late…) Like Dis” but I’ve been wearing these whenever I’m having a lazy hair day. They're super easy to throw up and perfect for those days you want to look cute but stay laid back.

7. Ballet Flats

Right now Lexington is in the ugly winter-to-spring stage and it’s made our weather unpredictable. It’s too early for sandals and too late for boots. Perfect time to bring out the ballet flats. I'm loving neutrals right now but I hope to get some fun colors when spring comes around.

8. Coach Alligator Wristlet

I’ve been on the go a lot lately, from events to concerts to shows and more. Taking my whole purse is just a hassle and more to carry. This wristlet is perfect for days like that, but is nicer for less casual events. And the nude color goes with almost any outfit.

9. Vineyard Vines Hat

Have I only had this hat for less than a week? Yes. Have I already worn it at least twice? Yes. I’m constantly on the go with little time to master the beast that is my hair. This navy hat from Vineyard Vines helps me hide the mess but is also cute. I’m a “porcelain beauty” as Bobbi Brown says and I need anything I can to shade my pale face, and I’ve never been able to find cute hats. I love this one and it will definitely be making the trip to Hilton Head.

10. MAC Viva Glam Lipstick in V

I've always been a gloss-over-stick girl, but when I saw this shade, I loved it. MAC describes it as "a pure neutral pink with a delicious Lustre finish." This neutral pink with a little shimmer is perfect for any occasion and has been my go to for the month of March.

Alright, you know the drill. Tell me your favorites below!
