Trendy, KPOP, just not my usual.

Hey friends!! I am so happy you are stopping in to 1998miss.com today.

Today’s daily style was inspired by my famous, fabulous, best friend, and roommate Miranda Lyu. She says this look is so KPOP which happens to be her favorite Korean girl group, and happens to be so precious that she gave me this compliment. I got this sweatshirt dress from Forever 21 like a century ago and am finally getting to wear it this season because Miranda got me this white Kenneth Cole sneakers!!! (for my 19th bday isn’t she just the best) Linked here!  love the comfort of this dress and especially like the black with white combo! It is not something I would usually pick to wear because I generally go more feminine and frilly….but I’m loving it! I’m going to link below a similar style + more!

A Classic Color Combo.

A Classic Color Combo

Hey y’all I am currently overwhelmed with a to do list two miles long since Spring Break officially ended and the countdown to summer break started. (Honestly who wasn’t already counting down for that!!!) Before studying with my Alpha Delta Pi girls tonight I wanted to share this darling white shirt from Banana Republic that I’m wearing today!!! My mom bought me this classic chic top ON SALE which means you’ll be needing this Linked here!!! I love this shirt because it made my casual rainy day attire a tad bit dressy. The darted neck compliments my figure and the petite size means it actually fits me right!!! The white color is something I was a little skeptical of because I get everything dirty so if you’re like me you can get it in red!! I’m excited to add this little classic to my wardrobe and to wear it with a trendy vibe next!!

On a side note I am back from vacation so that means I will probably lose my consistency with blog posts but get excited because I am doing an all inclusive post (with all the major deets & secrets) about my trip South!! I will be sharing all of the best photos, foods, and venues with y’all! I want to say thank you to my mommy Sarinda Dudley for taking me on such a fabulous vaca and to my dad for some of the funds! My mom and little brother Luke are the ones who are behind the camera and I am so thankful for them. Luke tends to get a little annoyed with the constant photograph moments but I know when he tells strangers about 1998miss.com that he’s proud of his old sister!

I have a new boutique collaboration coming soon and I can’t wait to spill the secret about who it is!! That collab will be in early April.

I am in cram mode for my molecular biology exam….so pray for me. :(((

I’m starting a new health & fitness plan which I am super delighted about! I was thinking about sharing it on 1998miss.com….what do y’all think?

I am ecstatic about the new read I found today at DuPont Library and you can find it here! It’s Southern Living magazine’s 50th anniversary book! Southern Living is a magazine you can always find sitting on the coffee table next to a big pitcher of flowers at my home in Missouri! My mom is chic and she trained me to love Southern Living since I was just a little (okay maybe I picked up on it by following in her footsteps). My mom is FAB> The book covers the basis of where Southern Living started from to where it is now and a complete full look at every COVER EVER PUBLISHED!!! I also loved flipping through the pages to see beautiful images of the good old South.

Classic chic, wait I’ve probably already used that. #blogger

Hey Girls,

I’m seriously so behind with my blog posts for this month! Wanna know what’s crazy??? This is exactly how it was for me during March 2016!! I’m so delighted to be sharing that I’m currently on Spring Break and enjoying my time off which means the blog will be lit with posts. #LOL Anyways to get down with the basic details of this post…this is one of my Sunday looks with an exciting new addition to it…THESE CLASSIC BLACK Christian Louboutin‘s!! I got these for my birthday from my precious mom & I am so in love! Turning older isn’t the most joyous event for me because I feel like time is moving too fast but honestly, with these babies, I think I’ll make through. Thank you, mom. I LOVE YOU. This outfit is also great because it has a modesty element I love it’s the little light pink tight longsleeved onesie paired underneath this sleeveless black dress. These are a great way to make anything modest as you’ll see if you follow me on Instagram I use them a lot!! I have one in almost every color and I ordered some online the others came from forever 21! #YES

Dress: Target $29.99

The hairstyle is a simple high pony because I was running late to church but was also a chic option to showcase the turtleneck!

Snoga Athletics Review

March 7, 2017

Snoga Athletics Review 

I am so delighted to be reviewing the 

CROPPED SHIRT TAIL SKIRT WITH ATTACHED CAPRI LENGTH LEGGINGS

by Snoga Athletics!

First off I am so happy to say that the customer is the priority of Snoga Athletics and that is one of the many reasons that makes Snoga so wonderful. I received my skirt within three days of the order and that is just incredible!!! They product was definitely quality and I love it!!! The built in leggings allowed me to be modest and comfy! A DOUBLE WIN!!! I loved that I was in active wear and was cute! I received so many compliments wearing this skirt and honestly, I give it a 10/10 rating. I loved the style of the cropped shirt tail and the leggings hit mid calf which is great!!!!! If you order this skirt I recommend ordering your regular size and not sizing up. I ordered a Medium and I was so pleased it fit! The material is giving with a wide band at the top to keep you looking slim. It was so challenging to pick my first Snoga Athletics piece because I honestly loved them all. I reasoned with myself that ordering a neutral color was the best option for me and I am so glad I did. I can’t wait to add more Snoga athletics skirts to my closet because they are wonderful! I hope you order from Snoga and if you do make sure to tag them in your post! I hope to get the Faux-Wrap skirt next and a huge thank you to Snoga for this wonderful skirt!

10/10
