Yes, it’s true.. I have Pineapple Fever! I always have and probably always will! I simply adore pineapples! I recently bought the cutest pineapple tray ever (it’s linked below). Did you know that the pineapple is symbolic for southern hospitality? Another reason I am in love with decorating with this sweet fruit, also it’s very fitting for me since I live in the “Land of the Pines” here in North Carolina.
As I am getting ready for SPRING over here in the Pines, I am definitely noticing a pattern going on..RUFFLES! They are everywhere right now! When designed tastefully they can be really cute and not obnoxious looking. I have found lots of cute ruffle tops to try out for spring and will be sharing my top picks!
Outfit Details: Ruffle Tee Top (only $35 and also comes in a gorgeous blush pink) , Heels (My favorite pair), Jeans (can’t find exact pair online, similar here), Bag is LV Neverfull MM (thinking about doing a post just on this bag, I am obsessed!)
These pictures were taken a few days ago from my visit to Charlotte. I have to say I love visiting bigger cities just because I can actually go to stores to shop because 99% of my shopping is done online since I live in such a small town. More simple things I love about visiting Charlotte is being able to go to a Chipotle and Target! Two things that are over an hour away from me so when I am in a city that has them, that’s the first thing I want to do! If you follow me on snapchat you probably saw all the Target snaps!
Anyways here are my favorite ruffle tops of the season!

First off Happy New Year!! I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for 2017! I just love how a new year means a fresh start! I am ready to tackle this year and make this year my best year so far! I have a lot of dreams to accomplish! So lets do this 2017!! I thought it was be fun if I shared each resolution along with a current favorite sweater! Before I get started, I want to share the details of the dress pictured above! It’s such a fun flirty dress, sizing tip ladies, size down! I am wearing an XS and I am by no means an XS girl! It comes to several colors too! So check out the dress here!
My Top Five Resolutions for 2017:
The first sweater I’m sharing is such a closet staple! Love a good neutral!
1.Be consistent with working out. This is HUGE for me! I am so guilty of going all out with workouts then taking a long “break”. This year is going to be different! I will consistently workout 5-6 days a week! I actually have found an amazing workout, Pure Barre! I am so in love with these workouts! They are different everyday and you work out every little muscle! It has been the most effective workout I have ever done! I have been doing Pure Barre for two months now and have lost a whopping 10lbs! Yes! 10 lbs! And still have about 5-10 more lbs to go! Side note I am only 5’4 so any extra weight on me shows up. I firmly believe Barre is life changing and if there is a Pure Barre studio near you…RUN TO IT! Yes its pricey but its your health which is SO important! I just work it into the budget! Speaking of Budgeting…
The second sweater I’m sharing is a two for one! The cowl neck is actually a detachable scarf! The fit of this sweater is super flattering too!
The third sweateris the perfect off the shoulder top! I have tried several and none of them have stayed in place, this one actually does! And the color is so gorgeous!
3. Quiet Time. Being intentional about setting a quiet time with God and really doing daily devotions! I am totally guilty of skipping my time with the Lord because I’m too “busy” but guess what happens when I do that? I can’t think clear, I have too much on my brain and don’t feel fulfilled at all that day! So if I am ever having a bad day, I can almost guarantee you that I didn’t read my Bible that morning!
The fourth sweater just screams ALEXA! I love anything leopard print! I call this my conservative Spice Girls top! Hurry its selling out fast!
4. Eat Healthy and Practice Portion Control! This one is a no brainer. Eat healthyfeel healthy. BUT I know everyday I am not going to be 100% healthy, I am human! But when I do break and eat “bad” foods, I will not go crazy! Portion, Portion, Portion!!! I strongly believe you do not need to deprive yourself of your favorite foods! For me this is pizza and pasta! Yes the Italian and Greek in me is strong when it comes to yummy food!! Tonight I’m making pasta but making it healthier, using ground turkey instead of beef and I’ll be weighing and portioning out my plate. Also one more thing we will be doing is eating at home for 90% of our meals, it’s way healthier and way cheaper!
Last but not least is my favorite cardigan! It is so soft and cozy! A must have!
5. Plan and Organize! One thing about me is that I am a “creative” person and just have ideas bouncing around in my head constantly! So…I ordered an Erin Condren planner for Christmas! And I am in love! It’s sitting beside me right now actually. I love all the fun stickers and planning out my days has been a game changer for me! It is one way I plan to stay organized in 2017!
I hope you have enjoyed my resolutions and that they have encouraged you to start 2017 with a bang!
