Maroon Chiffon Top





Jeans: American Eagle // Booties: Lucky Brand

For the next few outfit posts you'll be seeing soon, they were all taken in below freezing weather! But I had the mentality of "do it for the blog" as I forced myself to smile through the cold. I love this top from Knitted Belle Boutique, not only is it my favorite color (maroon, not burgundy) but it's also extremely affordable at only $35!

My Christmas List 2016

Without further ado, I now announce Anchored in the South to be in Christmas mode! Prepare yourself for fun Christmas posts and of course, a plethora of gift guides! I'm happy to be home for the holidays, I could do without the cold though because driving in the snow is no fun! Either way, I've been busy planning blog posts for this month and I'm excited to share them!

Today I'm sharing my Christmas list for this year, in hopes of helping y'all with some inspiration. Goodness know I've best get started on my Christmas shopping, I still have no clue what to get people this year!



What is on your wishlist?

November Recap & Favorites

By tomorrow it'll be a whole month since I haven't put a post out, even with tons of ideas in my mind I just have yet to find the time to put them all together. With finals coming up next week, it's going to be crazy busy for me. But I've got a whole month off for Christmas break, and I'm looking forward to being back to blogging. Since it's been so long let me get y'all updated with what I've been up to.

As I said finals are next week so I'm prepping myself for late night cram sessions. As most of you know I still have yet to declare a major, but I've been looking into Public Relations or Communications.

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I was unable to make it back home for the holiday, so I ended up going to my friend's house and celebrated with her and her family. We had lots of good food, watched Elf, and packed shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Even though I couldn't be with my family I still had a great time hanging out with hers, especially since one of her older sister's and her fiance brought their puppy!

My Favorite TV Shows

Friends: I decided to rewatch all ten seasons, and I'm almost done with the seventh season.

Gilmore Girls: As most of you know the revival came out on Netflix last week, I'm waiting til I go back home to watch it with my mom. But I have a feeling it's going to be great (and emotional).

My Favorite Quotes

"I will do a lot of things...but admitting I'm cold after my mom told me to bring a jacket is not one of them."

"Throw me to the wolves and I will return leading the pack."

"Everything happens for a reason. But sometimes the reason is that you're stupid and you make bad decisions."

"Life is tough, but it's tougher when you're stupid." -John Wayne

My Favorite Songs

Half of My Heart by John Mayer

When We Were Young by Adele

I Got You by Jack Johnson

Sangria by Blake Shelton

HAPPINESS by NEEDTOBREATHE

Ship to Wreck by Florence + The Machine


My Wishlist

This sweater looks so cozy!

The perfect pair of ear jackets.


Been wanting a new pair of gym shoes and I think I found them.

A great price for some rainboots.

Freshman Year Dorm Room Tour

It has been a long time coming since I wrote a blog post, and I have dearly missed blogging. I still have yet to find a good time to get some blogging done with my busy schedule, but I'm not going to use any more excuses. My goal is to get out at least two posts a week. We'll see how it goes! Without further ado I'm excited to be sharing y'all my dorm room. I really liked out it turned out, and it's crazy because my friend and I are already talking about getting an apartment next year! Also let me know if you want to see a more in-depth dorm tour in the form of a video!

Fall Favorites from Madewell Under $100

Today is the first day that it's actually starting to feel like fall here in Mississippi. Yet I'm still rocking a t-shirt and shorts...probably because I never check the weather before I head out to go to class. I'm sharing a few of my favorite fall pieces from Madewell today, let me know which piece is your favorite. I personally saved the best for last!
