Good morning loves! Lately I have been craving banana bread like no other, so it was sort of perfect when I realized we had these neglected bananas laying around our kitchen!! The best thing about this recipe for me was that I didn't even have to leave my house for a single thing! It was all right here :) (okay that's kind of a lie, I had to borrow the pan from a neighbor... but anyway...) It's so so easy to make and omg, SO DELISH! Okay, what are we waiting for! Let's get started!
2-3 rather ripe bananas, peeled (ripe enough to be super mushy and gooey)
1/3 cup of melted butter
1 teaspoon of baking soda
pinch of salt
3/4 cup of sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
preheat the oven to 350ºF (175ºC), and butter a 4x8inch loaf pan

in a mixing bowl, mix together butter, baking soda, salt, sugar, vanilla extract, flour and the already beaten egg.

do your best to squish bananas while they are still in the peel! This will reduce mashing with a fork, which is harder than it looks.

mix everything together until you've reached about the constancy pictured below
adding chocolate chips is optional, I did and I don't regret it... just saying, it's delicious.
pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes to an hour, I did mine for 50 just fine, but every oven is different. Know your oven, connect with your oven, BE YOUR OVEN!
And there you have it!!! A beautiful loaf of your very own!! I should say, "once you remove it from the oven, set and let cool for at least 30 minutes to an hour before removing it from the pan and slicing..." but who am I kidding, I'm impatient as heck and dug right in... But hey! It's better warm anyway! 

I really hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I do! It only took about ten minutes to prep and I'm super pleased with how it turned out! Let me know what you think, if and when you try this! 

Have a fantastic Wednesday! xo, O

earrings and sunnies- Forever 21 // jacket- Anne Klein // shoes- Rumors Boutique // set- sewn by me

Hello Tuesday! It's officially officially spring and things are feeling great here in RVA, the sun is shining, its just about 65º and spring is here to stay :) Although I'm not ready to go back to Savannah, it's already 90º there and that's just insanity, it's like spring never sprung, it just skipped straight to summer I guess!

Anyway, I wanted to FINALLY show off this outfit because I MADE IT! I'm no expert seamstress, but I'm pretty proud of myself :) I made the set over the summer and have yet to even wear it until now! I got the fabric from Mood when I went to NYC early last summer and am so happy to be wearing my creation out and about!

This past quarter I took a fashion technology class where I made a skirt, a blouse and a jacket which I will show off to you all sometime soon, but I'm super excited to start making more of my own clothes too! What do y'all think? Do you like?

It's a Neoprene fabric and I only bought a yard and a half to make all this, say WHAT?! Yes! The top is made up of six pieces and two long straps, the skirt is seven pieces. I wish I had a pattern to share with y'all so you could make your own, but I sort of just made it up based of of clothes I already had! Next time I promise I will!!

ALSO! I re-dyed my hair yesterday myself, what do you think? I though brightening it up, and boosting the ombré would be fun for spring :)

That's all for today folks! xoxo, O

shoes and shirt- Forever 21 // overalls- thrifted "London London"

Hello and happy first day of spring! Tonight over dinner my dad and I were talking about my ~*future*~; that big, scary, daunting, pressure-loaded word, that honestly, even though I am just a freshman in college, needs some attention now. As of right now, I know for a fact that in my future career I want to continue blogging, hopefully work as an editor or writer for a large fashion magazine or blog, and just generally be in the fashion world. So how do I get there? Well not by sitting around just waiting for it to come to me, that's for sure, but working for it. At SCAD I'm majoring in Fashion Marketing and Management and minoring in Fashion Journalism, and I know SCAD will help me along the way to learn more about my intended future field and how to get there, and hopefully also help me with getting internships and jobs and such, but there is that one big thing that I'm pretty much on my own with: blogging. SOOO I've come to the conclusion that if I want to actually get somewhere with my blog I seriously need to step up my game. In honor of spring, starting fresh and new and clean and all that good spring stuff, I've decided I need to make some spring goals for my blog...
I realize I need more, MORE MORE MORE! No one is going to want to follow a blog that never posts, or when it does, its the same. old. thing. My goal is to try, and I know this may sound unrealistic, but I am going to try my best to post everyday. Hold up, everyday?! Yes, that's right, you heard me! Seven days a week! And hey, I'm busy as heck with school, but I believe in myself that I can schedule posts, I can find an hour a day to post, especially now that the sun sets later and it's warmer, it'll be easier to get out and actually take the photos.
And not just outfit photos! I want to create a more diverse spread of posts for you guys. I want to be able to attract a greater audience, so more recipes, more home decor, inspo / mood boards, DIYs etc. I want to do a YouTube video once a week, a Savannah Spotlight post once a week (unless i'm broke broke broke, cause that's a valid reason not to do it) I would love to introduce guest posts and try to reach out to more companies to do more collaborations.
And finally, I'd like to be more present on social media, I recently created a Facebook page, so go follow that! Honestly I only had a Facebook for a hot second in the past and I hardly know how to work it now, so I'm doing my best!! But that'll just make for an easier platform to get notifications of when I post, an easier way to contact me, and just generally follow along on the go :) I plan to just be more active online, I know I'm already pretty active, but I really really want to get my blog noticed, so if anyone knows how, without spending any money on promoting my posts, please someone let me know.
That pretty much sums up the top three things I want to do this spring to grow my blog, let me know what you guys think. And what do you want to see out of my blog? Seriously, let me know! Talk to me! Shoot me an email at or just comment down below, OR facebook message me, hehehe...

Anyway, I hope you guys are as excited as I am to see my little blogosphere expand :) Now I'm off to bed, I'll see here tomorrow! Watch this space! xo
All these lovely photos were taken by my friend Spencer Sease, go give him a follow on insta and check out his website!!
