Last of Summer

It's the second day of school and I already miss the beach? Just kidding, while I do miss the beach I am so happy to be starting my senior year! However, this outfit was totally made for the beach {so if you're headed somewhere for Labor Day, pay attention}. Hannah got me this hat for Christmas and I have been obsessed with it ever since. The swim shirt and suit are both from Lands End who I have purchased swim apparel from for a very long time. I am super fair so a swim shirt is always necessary {your skin is important!} and the fit of their stuff is always on point. What swimwear brands are y'all loyal too? -xoxo darling, Hayden
{Notes: Hannah bought me a hat more like this one, but I've linked a ton below as well. 
Location: Lighthouse Beach, Sanibel, Florida}

Week Re-Cap

Hey darlings. So after I say this we'll go back to the regularly scheduled Week Re-Cap but as you know I live in Texas. This past week Texas has been devastated in some of the worst possible ways. My best friend, Hannah, who most of y'all have seen here on the blog, her family was effected as were other people very close to me. In order to help, please consider donating here, here or here. Anything can help because these people have lost everything. It has been an extremely emotional way to begin our senior years of college but we are trying to be positive and just help rebuild these communities. Thank you for reading and if you donated, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Now onto Week Re-Cap:
Today is the first day of senior year! How crazy is that?! I am so excited to be headed to two of my four classes today and to table for my organization. The photos below are from some of my last days at home and some of the adventures my family took this past weekend. Have y'all started school yet? -xoxo darling, Hayden
One last beach day in Fort Myers...
I flew back to Austin on Friday! 
Finally got to go to the National Museum of the Pacific War.
The cutest lunch place in Fredericksburg, Woerner.
The food was so good...so good.
We really liked Pedernales Brewing Company.
After reading about Castell's General Store in Texas Highways we had to make a stop.
We had some delicious bbq! 
The last night my parents were in town we went to St. Elmo Brewery.
I received my ticket for the Texas vs. USC game this week and I could 
not be more excited to be headed out to Los Angeles in a few weeks!

My Kind of Top

When I saw this top on sale at GAP, yes it is on sale, I fell in love. Not only is it navy blue, my favorite color, it has orange {hook 'em} and they details are embroidered. I went a size up {I'm usually a large and went to an XL} because I liked the flow-y look better. The actual size you are will fit, but I wanted the drape to be more like it is in these photos. It is the perfect top to dress up or down, so run out and get one while they still have them-xoxo darling, Hayden!
{Location: Manitou Springs Cliff Dwellings // Note: I got this shirt for 
less than $20 at GAP, so before you buy it online, go check your local store}

Back to Austin

{via}
This morning I am getting on a Southwest flight bound for Austin, to start my senior year at UT. I am so sad...yet happy? I don't want to start the year because that means I am beginning the end but I am thrilled to get back to campus and see my friends. Do any of y'all have experience with this? Let me know-xoxo darling, Hayden.

Summer's Favorite Dress

It is embarrassing how much I have worn this dress since buying it in early July...like I love it that much. It is comfy, the color is really cute and I love the embroidery. Not to mention...it's on sale!!! The boots are new, Frye, and I have been wanting booties for quite some time. They fit the bill + they are cowboy so they work for Texas as well. Not to mention, they are some of the comfiest things I have put my feet in. I couldn't find the bag on Target's website, but it exists. I love it, I can fit almost everything in it and it's checker print, which is my favorite. What do y'all think? -xoxo darling, Hayden
{Location: The Broadmoor // Note: The bag is from Target and there were 
quite a few on sale the last time I was in, but they were not on ShopStyle}
