My Favorite Burnt Orange Clothes *University of Texas at Austin

Football season starts in a week Longhorns! And y'all, this is my favorite time of the year. I cannot wait to put on my favorite color and scream for my team at DKR. Since football season is here, I thought I'd compile my favorite burnt orange items of clothing that are in the shops right now. You don't have to be a Longhorn to love these, they are perfect for fall too. I know we all shop at the Co-Op but these come from other places (like Target and boutiques) so you'll have the chance of being a little more unique. What do y'all think?

The Ultimate Coastal Grandmother Playlist

I am fully obsessed with the coastal grandmother vibe, and because of that I made a playlist of my favorite tunes that I think embody the feeling of a Nancy Meyers' movie. And since I just moved this has kind of been the playlist I've reached for most as I've put things away, organized and bought more and more things (why is moving so expensive?!). Give it a listen and let me know if I missed anything!

Is this the largest Week Re-Cap ever??? Probably.

My going-away party was Parent Trap themed!
There are 113 photos in this post...I think. It spans the last few weeks of summer in Denver, my first ever visit to Canada, my going-away party, the drive across the country to move me to Charlotte and some Charlotte content. So yeah...a lot! But, I think you'll enjoy the photos if you scroll through them.
