My Christmas Wish List

12 | 34 | 5 | 67 | 8 | 9
With only 29 days until Christmas, it's time for me to start getting all of my Christmas presents together. These are some of the things i'm asking for Christmas, if you would like to check them out and add them to your list as well. Some of the stand out items on the list is the Apple watch, Spanx leggings (which I am DYING for), and the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette.  Along with asking for these items, I will definitely be giving some of these items as gifts this holiday, such as the Ugg chenille socks. If anyone wants me to make some gift guides for your loved ones, leave a comment or send me a message and I will get those going for y'all.

I wanted to start off my first official blog post with my favorite thing [ever], FALL! If there are two things I love in this world it is fall and a good inspo collage. So i decided to round up my absolute go-to products I can't be without during the fall and share them with you. Hope you enjoy! 
1. THESESam Edelman riding boots are a STAPLE in my fall wardrobe. They're the perfect shade of cognac (my favorite color of boots to wear!) and so versatile. I can pair these with jeans and an oversized sweater, leggings and a tunic, or dress them up with tights and a dress. I will say though these do run a little small. I am usually a true 9 and had to get a 9.5 in these. Theseare also another one of my favs if you are wanting a black riding boot! 
2. This Free People Sweateris my favorite sweater.. EVER. This cream color is to die for and it is super soft. I ordered a size up because I like the oversized look. I love the neckline and that it is long enoug…

Let's Get This Thing Started!! [All About Me!]

Hello everyone!! Ever since I can remember I have been obsessed with all things fashion, beauty, decor, and style. I am constantly reading blogs, watching YouTube tutorials, or scanning the web for new items to fall in love with. This inspired me to start my own blog to share with you my favorite items and how to get the looks you want on a (struggling) college girl budget. I figured if the bloggers i've been reading for years can do it, why not me? 
This led me to start this blog, Swimming in Sunshine. I bet you're wondering.. Swimming in Sunshine, where did that name come from? Swimming in Sunshine is one of my very favorite songs from Billy Currington. It's just so much fun and I have so many memories of my friends and I, windows down, riding around listening to this song on repeat.
