If I Could Find A Real Life Place That Made Me Feel Like Tiffany’s

Hey y’all! So as many of you know my all time favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I was lucky enough to do a little collaboration with The Sleepy Cottage to create a look even Audrey Hepburn herself would be proud of.

First a little about Sleepy Cottage. They make the cutest pouches for traveling, luxury eye masks, dry shampoo, towelettes, tote bags, and they even make custom orders. I think I am going to have to order some matching sleep masks for my sister’s wedding. Not only are their sleep masks adorable, but they are also super comfortable. Their earplugs are cute and really do cancel out the sound! I am obsessed! You can check out Sleepy Cottage here.

I like to think I am a modern day Audrey Hepburn. A girl can wish… so I decided to create her iconic pajama look from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. If you have never seen the movie you should go watch it immediately! Of course, Audrey Hepburn even looks fab in her pajamas that include a Tiffany blue mask adorned with gold eyelashes and earplugs that look like tassels. I really felt like I was channeling my inner Holly Golightly and my mom even said my hair looks like her, but I will let you decide that for yourselves!

Hey y’all! So I finally posted yesterday. I am slowly getting back into the groove of being home. I have been crazy with my various jobs. I have been interviewing and nannying. This week has been a little crazy. I have been trying to focus on the blog, but I have been a little distracted because I got my first phone call from my boyfriend since he left for basic. I have been on an emotional roller coaster y’all.

I know I have been saying this for weeks, but I really am getting back on a normal blog schedule. I have lots of fun content coming your way. I also have fulfilled a large dream of mine which is collaborating with FabFitFun. I wrote a post about it yesterday so make sure to check it out!

I am also looking forward to doing a question and answer blog soon. I need for you guys to comment any question you may have on this post, on Instagram, or email them to me at hello@virginiaisforprepsters.blog. Also coming up this week will be a little post about long distance tips and how I am personally dealing with it. If you have any experience with long distance please reach out to me! I am so excited for all of the collaborations and content coming soon!

Keeping it Fab, Fit, and Fun

Hey y’all! Sorry for my absence on the blog, but I am back here to tell you about my favorite subscription box. I have recently become a member of the affiliate program and I love being a #FabFitFunPartner. I have not yet received my first box as an affiliate, but I have received them in the past. I  love that they send full-size brand items. Usually, one full-size item equals the price of the whole box! Not to mention you get add-on items for cheaper prices and you get to customize your box! You even get to take a quiz so you can get items that fit your personality and lifestyle.

I cannot even tell you how many summer box unboxing videos I have watched. The summer box looks amazing. I have seen beach towels, sunscreen, make up bags, full Tarte contour palettes, and even clothing items. I am so jealous that I am getting the summer box for myself!

Do You Have This In Pink?

Hey y’all! Sorry I have been so absent from the blog lately! Finals and traveling home have certainly gotten the best of me! I am back again and so excited to share some new pieces with you guys! I have told you before, but I will tell you again, I am a rep for a small online boutique called Charming Flamingos. Each month I get two items from them! One of the pieces I will be showing you today. That is not the only good news. All of my followers get a discount on the website with the code VAPREPSTERS.

This outfit is casual and simple. Wednesdays at home are generally pretty busy so I tend to keep it comfy. This is a perfect outfit for on the go. I paired my cold shoulder tye dye shirt from Charming Flamingos with Lucky Brand jeans, white converse, and a pink choker from Francesca’s. I love this outfit and received compliments all day long! Nothing like a lazy Wednesday outfit!

Hey y’all! Olivia reporting live from underneath the stacks of books she is studying from! Don’t you just love finals week? Monday I had classes as normal. Tuesday I studied and took pictures of some friends. This morning I had my first final and it was seriously a breeze. Thursday I have a three-hour review for math and studying for two finals so I probably not be on the blog very much. Friday I have two finals and then I fly home for the summer! I am so excited to see my friends and family and get back to normal posting for you all. I have some really exciting material coming to the blog!

As many of you know, my boyfriend is now in basic. It has been so hard not being able to talk to him and I have been really sad. I decided to use this experience for some blog content with the help of my two sisters who have also had long distance relationships. So look out for that on the blog!

I am so sorry this week’s post is brief, but it has not been a very eventful week! I promise the blog will be more interesting next week! Thank you for all the well wishes and support!

Running Away From My Responsibilities And It Feels So Good

Hey y’all! So I thought this title was really fit for finals week and for an athleisure look. I decided to go with an all-black outfit because I am mourning the loss of my motivation! I promise that I am actually tackling my responsibilities not running away from them…

So this year I have made a point of living a healthier life. I have been eating healthier and even exercising more. On top of dancing Monday through Thursday and doing dance conditioning on Fridays, I have also been trying to go to the gym at least 3 times a week. My body appears more toned, I am wearing smaller clothing sizes, and I have so much more energy. I feel stronger when dancing too! It is amazing what your body can do when you fuel it with the right things!

Now we all know we have those days where we just lack all motivation to go to the gym. I motivate myself with cute gym clothes. It is no secret that I am clothing obsessed so cute items to workout in make me excited to go to the gym. I am in love with Fabletics. The black pants and shirt I am wearing are a matching set from Fabletics, the sports bra is Under Armour, and my tennis shoes are obviously Nike. I am always looking for cute and affordable athletic clothes and would appreciate your help. Would you guys want me to post a workout routine or some healthy meal ideas on the blog?

Whatever, I’m Still Fabulous

Hey y’all! Life has thrown a lot of curve balls at me lately so I have been living by this mantra. No matter if I barely make it out of bed, I am wearing no makeup and sweatpants, and my hair is wet I am still fabulous. Let’s face it, we as bloggers only show the good stuff not the bad. I wish I was confident enough to show you the bad but I am not. So as I sit at my desk in my sweatpants with wet hair, I will show you an outfit which was shot on a day I was looking and feeling fabulous!

This dress has been in my closet since the 10th grade. It sounds crazy, but I got it in a TjMaxx in Louisiana. When I bought it I never knew I would love scallop edges as much as I love them now. I have styled this dress so many different ways. I have styled it with a hot pink Lilly headband and hot pink jelly Tory flats, but today I kept it extra simple. I used to wear this dress to school, I have worn it to graduation parties, and even to dance recitals. I LOVE this dress! I tend to not like form-fitting dresses, but for some reason, this one is an exception. It hugs in all the right places, it is lined, and it does not stick to you when it is hot outside. I paired it with platinum Jack Rogers (not pictured) and my gold Sheila hoops! Perfect for date night!
