Off-the-Shoulder Crop Top & Last Goodbyes (I'M MOVING TOMORROW!)

Cropped, OTS TOP from Anthropologie (under $100!) High-waisted mom JEANS w/ bow hem ($60). Similar high-waited, cropped JEANS ($45). Another similar pair HERE w/ belled-ankle. Mom JEANS w/ frill trim. Hot pink PUMPS by Sam Edelman. 

A new week is here & that means a new outfit for a Monday blog post! Anthropologie takes the cake with this adorable off the shoulder, cropped top with gorgeous design. 

It's a must-have for sure! I love wearing it with these fun, high-waisted mom jeans w/ a flared hem. It is also so cute with denim cut-offs or white jeans! And the top is under $100!! 

Paired with my new favorite pumps of the season. These Sam Edelman shoes come in like 18(???) different color combinations. So you have no excuse to not find a pair to fit into your closet collection. 

I move TOMORROW!! I can't even begin to fathom that the day is finally here! I have be planning for this for so long and it really hasn't even sunk in yet. I am pretty much all packed minus a few little things. I'll do a post on packing after I get a little more settled! 

For the last few days I have been saying my last goodbyes to close friends and family. It's hard to think it'll be so long before I see them again, but I'm so thankful for social media and FaceTime to help bridge the gap! 

Below are a few recent photos of my friends & family. I hope you all have a great week. (Widget w/ item details linked at the very bottom). 

Two of my best friends from college, Kelsey & Leighton, came all the way to my hometown to surprise visit me on Friday night. It had to be the sweetest thing ever, and I can't even explain how much it meant to me. It was so fun to have one last sleepover (for awhile) and get to catch up on last minute things before I'm gone! I have been so blessed by sweet friendships like their's for so many years. I'm thankful that moving isn't the end of these friendships but just a new chapter for things yet to come. 

I'm so glad my little brother, Chandler, came in town before I left. He lives in Nashville and is finishing up school at Lipscomb. Having a little brother has been such an incredible gift. As some may know, I lost my older brother so I am especially thankful for my time spent with Chandler. He is kind and effortlessly cool. He's also a great musician, which makes him even cooler. 

Also--this belt was my mom's and from the early 90s! This is also the jumpsuit she wore on the plane to her honeymoon with my dad! 

Before leaving I also made one last stop to see my bff/sister/role model/second mom & her new baby boy, Luke. She's one of the best people I've ever known, and I'm so glad I've had her to look up to and ask for advice over all these years. I'm so glad she likes to shop... and NYC has GREAT shopping... So I'm expecting frequent visits! (My apartment also has great lighting!)

My cousins, Olivia and Morgan. These girls are more like sisters to me. I am thankful for my huge, loving family who has supported me and encouraged me to follow my dreams. Even when my dreams send me far away. These girls, like other cousins of mine, have played a vital role in shaping who I am today, and I love them forever!
