Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween, everyone!!

I hope everyone has a spooky and fun day! Tonight, I will be going to my school's halloween carnival which is so much fun every year!! I am still working on putting together my costume for tonight so I will have a busy day!! I can't wait to show y'all the costume!! It is so good!! What are you all going to be?

Today, I am sharing one of my favorite fall essentials, the Vineyard Vines Shep Shirt. I got my first Shep Shirt 4 years ago on my 16th birthday and have loved them ever since! They are the perfect pullover. They are so soft, comfy, and an easy throw on piece, plus they are SO versatile!! They come in so many different patterns, styles, and colors and Vineyard Vines has new releases of Shep Shirts for every season!! 

The Shep Shirt I am wearing in this post is brand new for the fall. It has the most darling pink color and an amazing fleece texture. It is SO soft and cozy which is perfect for the cooler months. To dress it up, I paired it with white skinny jeansKate Spade scallop earrings, and leopard flats. It makes for the perfect fall outfit with just the right amount of warmth and sophistication. You could also pair this Shep Shirt with leggings and bean boots for a super cute look as well!

Peplum in October

Hi everyone!! 

Holy wow, I can't believe that it is almost November!! This year has totally flown by!! That being said, one of my all time favorite trends from this year has been peplum. I LOVE PEPLUM! I have so many peplum tops, it is not even funny. They add just the right amount of spunk, sass, fun, and sophistication to an outfit. 
I recently got this darling peplum top from Lauren James. And let me tell y'all, it is so perfect!! The first thing I noticed when I got it out of the box is how soft it is. Like it is SO soft!!! It is also like a super breathable sweater material which is amazing for year round. It is a great piece for layering in the fall and winter, but can also just be worn as a fun top in the spring and summer!! 
I paired this darling top with my favorite pair of ripped white skinny jeans  from Old Navy, these absolutely gorgeous Kendra Scott Statement Earrings, my favorite pair of shoes  from this fall, and my all time favorite Tory Burch bag that I take everywhere. 
You can easily pair this top with a cardigan or a utility jacket and it would look perfect!! It would definitely be a staple in your closet and you would love it!!
You can also get 15% off your order from Lauren James with code: KELSEY15

here's to you, here's to me BIG & LITTLE we'll always be

Hi everyone!

Happy Sunday!! Last week, I shared on the insta that I have a new little!! And, she is absolutely perfect and I love her!!! My perfect little Lexi, I love you so much and I can't wait to create lifelong memories with you and to watch our friendship grow!! I adore you, little one!

About a month ago, I found out that my little was Alexis. During recruitment, I talked with her during a round and we had SO much in common, like a lot. For instance, we live on the same street, have mutual friends and both grew up in the same town. It was so crazy!! Anyway, we talked a few times after that and deep down I knew she was going to be my little. One day, we got coffee and talked for 2 straight hours!! Even then, I was so obsessed with her!

Last weekend, I spent almost every waking hour crafting. I wanted to make sure every detail was perfect and was something that Lexi was going to love! I ended up making the letters by pouring acrylic paint on them, putting them in a trash bag and pressing down. When you lift it up, it looks like marble!! It was so neat!! For the pin box and the picture frame, my mom came up with this really cool almost henna design! I loved the way it turned out! It was SO pretty!! For the canvases, I found this super cute donut design and just had to do it! It turned out perfectly and I even threw some donuts in her basket to throw them all together!! For the other canvas, I did the marble design and then wrote Delta Zeta in calligraphy on top and it was so cute!!

Fast forward to last Sunday night, the first night of Big/Little week. Our Vice President of New Member Education told us what to put in their gifts each night so all gifts had the same items. I decided to go for a marble theme all week. It was the perfect blend of edge and class. The first night, the gifts included letters, a clue, and candy. On Monday night, we gave our littles a pin box, picture frame, clue, and more candy! Tuesday night was the night before the reveal. We gave them canvases, their reveal t-shirt, candy, and a DZ item. My big, Erika found the t-shirts online and I found the DZ necklace on Amazon.

Here is Lexi opening her first gift:

Lexi posted this pic on her insta stories and I love how they all look together!!

Wednesday Night: REVEAL!!!

Wednesday morning, I got a text from my big saying that Lexi new I was her big. I was super sneaky all week with my clues and pretty much lied all week except for the few truths. So in typical Kelsey fashion, I had to throw her off the scent. I decided to text her and tell her I was not coming to reveal that night. Below are the texts: 

And she totally fell for it!!! She told me that she was 100% certain that I was not going to be there so when she saw me she was SHOCKED!

That night, the reveal was amazing!! For the reveal, we did a blanket drop. I found the cutest blanket for $10 from Target and it had pom poms!! 

Here is a video of the actual reveal!!

This week was the absolute best and I could not have imagined it to go any better!! I got the most perfect little and I got a twin, hey Bella!! It is moments like this, where I get to share so much love with my sisters, that I realize why I fell in love with Delta Zeta in the first place. I LOVE YOU ALL SO SO SO MUCH!!!

It is so easy dress up or dress down and is perfect for every fall festivity!! And who says you can't wear white after Labor Day? I think that white is such a classic color and looks so clean and good in every season! I love these sassy white skinny jeans from Old Navy! They are so comfy and fun, perfect for this darling top! I paired this top and jeans with my favorite floppy hat for fall, darling Kate Spade earrings, my favorite block heel shoes, and my favorite Tory Burch bag!
