Fashion seems obsessed with the “effortlessly chic” look these days. You know, styles like messy buns, off-the-shoulder sweaters, no-makeup makeup, and the cool girl half tuck. I’ve never been a cool girl, so I definitely struggle to look effortless. For this look, I tried out the half tuck that all my favorite bloggers do so well. I liked the look, but I’m not sure I pulled it off as well as they do! I spiced up the outfit with a pair of BaubleBar tassel earrings. They’re so festive and perfect for this time of year!

I wore this outfit for a girls day with my mom. We visited the new Shreveport Aquarium, and I’m so glad we have this little gem now! I touched a jellyfish and spent time with my mom, so it was a great day. We ended our visit with lunch at SALT, the aquarium’s sustainable, locally-sourced restaurant overlooking the Red River. It was delicious! We had a lovely time, and I’m excited for more visits to the aquarium and SALT in the future.

P.S. Now that it’s November, it’s time to start thinking about the holidays! I’m a firm believer in planning gifts in advance, so I’ll be rolling out gift guides starting this Wednesday. I would love to know what other holiday content you’re interested in. Let me know in my survey here!

    The trend right now is *definitely* effortlessly chic! I definitely feel that struggle— I can be effortlessly…messy/sloppy, or put effort in to look nice, but haven’t found that magical in between.

    I’m totally a half-tucker— though usually because I’m 4’11 and all of my shirts are too long 😂. I think you rock it though!

    Love the post!


    • Oh my goodness I had no idea you are 4’11! I guess it’s because I only see your face on instagram haha. I’m glad I’m not the only one who struggles with this effortless look that actually requires a lot of effort.

  • Glomerulus, art, or both? #teamroom #medschool #oncall
  • This group of students went to the Louisiana State Medical Society House of Delegates yesterday as representatives of our school and the medical student section. We may have listened to debates on bylaw tedium for a little too long, but it was interesting to see how the LSMS adopts policy! #healthcare #advocacy #medschool #lifeloveandmedicine
  • A romantic, casual Valentine’s #ootd on the blog today (link in profile)! Do you have any plans for Valentine’s day? I’m thinking a casual dinner with my hubby will be perfect!

  • @influenster sent me @Suavebeauty’s new Suave Naturals lotion and body wash to try (for free). This product line’s claim to fame is that the products are free of paraben and dyes. Parabens are preservatives used in many products. The research on their effects is inconclusive, so it’s difficult to say whether or not you should avoid parabens in products. In terms of performance of these products, they are just average. I prefer more moisturizing lotions and body washes, especially in the winter.
