My Favorite Instagram Accounts

Let me start off by saying WOW have I missed writing these posts. I had to take a little bit of a hiatus these last couple of months because of how busy my amazing internship kept me. With that being said, I am now settled into my apartment and am ready to start blogging and filming again! Who is excited?! I thought my first post back should be on a fun topic, so why not talk about my favorite Instagram accounts?

We all know by now that bloggers are very popular on Instagram. From the outfits posts, to the creative overlays - I love it all. Needless to say, I creepily save so many pictures [the Instagram save option is one of the best things to ever happen to me no joke]. So I thought today would be the perfect day to share!

1) Katey McFarlan

You guys know by now that she is my favorite blogger ever. Her Instagram aesthetic is so pretty & clean and her outfit posts never get old. I don't know how she comes up with new poses and angles all the time! I also love her candid family photos that she posts.

Today I thought that I would do another "Favs Under $50" post because I really enjoyed writing my last one. If you aren't familiar with this little series I have started, then it is just me sharing my current favorite things that are under $50!

Dallas Do's

If you guys have been following me for the last year or so then you would know that I moved to Dallas, TX this past summer! I am originally from Austin and go to school in Alabama, but now when I come home for breaks it is to Dallas! 
I have already created "do's" for Austin & Tuscaloosa, which you can read here and here :) I figured that it was time to introduce you guys to my new city and my favorite things to do here!

Mindless Outfit

I titled this "mindless outfit" because it really is so simple that you don't have to think about it. When it comes to basics, pieces like these can go with anything, which really gives you some bank for your buck!

Last year was my first time living in an apartment and I loved it! I had amazing roommates and I really loved the layout of our apartment. 
So whether you are moving in to an apartment for the first time, or just looking to add some new things to yours, I think this guide will give you a little bit of inspiration!j

Summer Bucket List

I cannot believe that it is already June and a month of summer has gone by! With two months left of summer, I thought that I would create a little summer bucket list for myself and maybe it will inspire one of you to do some of these things!

Mothers Day Gift Guide

As we all know, Mothers Day is approaching, which means that most people are trying to figure out what to get their mama's! I personally love Mother's Day, mainly because of how much I love my mom. She is the most selfless, caring person I know and is truly my best friend. This is a day where I get to spoil her and make her know how special she truly is.

Summer Uniform

I would be lying if I said that I didn't want to name this post "Olive Summer" but my roommate, Hannah, said that some people wouldn't get it, so "Summer Uniform" it is! 
Also, I have to apologize for not posting on here in two weeks! I am in the process of finishing school so things have been crazy, but summer is coming - God bless.

The Perfect Travel Outfit

This weekend I am going to Washington D.C. for Easter and I couldn't be more excited! My mom and I went for Easter last year since my sister goes to school in D.C. and honestly, having an excuse to visit one of the most amazing cities is something that is so fun for my mom and I. If you have never been to D.C. you have to go! Everything from the monuments (obviously) to the amazing food and the great stores, it is definitely a place to see.

At Home Salon Manicure

I don't know know about you guys, but I absolutely hate paying for manicures. Pedicures are something that I do not have a problem paying for, but manicures just get to me just because I feel like I can do the same thing at home. Over the course of the last couple months it has been my mission to master the art of a manicure and with the help of a few products, I think I have accomplished it.

5 Steps to Clear Skin

Designer Dupes

I will be the first person to admit that I have expensive taste. As Katey McFarlan once wrote "Jesus just made me expensive" and that's honestly how I feel! I will also admit that I would so much rather just not have a designer item than have a fake designer item, simply because that I know one day I will have worked hard enough to be able to buy the actual thing and that moment will be sooo worth it. 

With all of that being said, sometimes there are designer items that I would never want to pay the price for just because they don't seem that worth it to me, which is why this blogpost idea popped into my head. I have rounded up the best designer dupes that I could find and I cannot wait to share them with you! 

I personally have a Forever 21 dupe for this belt and I absolutely love it! I just could never imagine spending the $148 for the actual thing simply because I do not wear belts nearly enough to spend that kind of money on it. So if you are like me and love the style of the B-Low the Belt Bri Bri belt but not the price tag, look into buying the $22 ASOS version.

Birthday Wishlist

I have always gotten a great response from my "wishlist" posts, so today I thought that I would mix things up a bit by sharing what I want for my upcoming 20th [what?!] birthday.

Transitioning to Spring

You all know by now that I am not a fan of color, so the spring/summertime can be a bit difficult for me because I don't want to abandon my favorite neutral - black. In todays post I thought I would share with you how to transition your dark pieces into spring appropriate outfits!

You guys know by now [or at least should] know that there is nothing I love more then wearing all black. In the spring/summer however you can look a bit out of place if you wear the combo. By pairing your dark pieces with a light wash pair of jeans and nude sandals, you will be transition ready!

If you guys didn’t read last weeks post, it was all about my spring break must haves for all of you beach babes out there! However, this weeks post is geared toward all of you snow bunnies.

Spring Break Must - Haves Part 1

First and foremost, I would just like to apologize for my little hiatus last week. I had a ton of different things going on, so a blogpost and a YouTube video just weren't going to happen. I do hope that my content this week makes up for it!

I know that for most of us, spring break is still about a month or so away but if you are a planner like me, then you are going to want to start ordering things to get yourself ready for your trip.

Tuscaloosa Guide

As many of you know, I am currently a sophomore at the University of Alabama and if you didn’t know that, well hello and Roll Tide! I changed the name of my blog almost a year ago to "The Diaries of Dixie" because of my love for this state and more specifically, Tuscaloosa.

Cozy in Black

You guys all know by now that black is my favorite color. It goes with everything, is incredibly slimming and just overall makes you look super chic. I recently picked up this Free People jumper that is the perfect thing to throw on when you want to be comfortable and cozy, but also look fashion forward.

Loungewear Musts

Since coming to college in fall of 2015, I think that I have honestly become the loungewear queen. In high school, I mostly dressed casual, but also really enjoyed dressing up. Now that I am in college, if I were to dress up one day for class, someone would most likely ask me what's wrong - no joke. 
Lucky for me, I don’t want to dress up for class, so the whole “athleisure" trend, is really up my ally.
