23 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

Hey y’all! Since today is my 23rd birthday, I thought it would be fun to share a little about myself (especially those of you who are new readers)! One of my blogger friends (@alexaelizabeth_) did this and I loved it! I always find it interesting just reading fun facts about people haha.. plus I think it makes it easier to connect with someone when they share things about their personal life!

1. Favorite Show:

Hands down, the Office.. it’s one of those shows that I can watch over and over and never get tired of!

 

2. Fast Food:

People are probably going to judge me for this one, but Taco Bell all the way!

 

3. College life:

I went to school in Kentucky and majored in Marketing (my concentration was actually in social media). I was also a member of Chi Omega sorority. I graduated last year and still miss it so much!

 

4. Siblings:

I’m an only child. I always get asked if I hate it, but it doesn’t bother me at all! I grew up with a ton of cousins, so I always had someone to play with.. and now that I’m older, I’m very close to my parents.

 

5. Meaning behind my blog name:

Back in 2015, when I was building my website, I was very preppy. But regardless of what I was wearing, pearls and curled hair were apart of my “signature” look. I wanted to make sure that even once my style evolved (which it definitely has) I could still relate to the name.

 

6. Favorite place I’ve travelled:

This will probably come as no shock to you, but LA (I’m even trying to plan another trip back!) I actually have a goal to live there at some point in my 20’s!

 

7. Pets:

So I’m almost convinced I’m the only person without a pet, but I have wanted a Husky for years. I would love to have one eventually!

 

8. Order at Starbucks: 

This changes a little bit depending on the season, so in the summer I pretty much only drink Mango Black Tea Lemonades. In the fall, I drink PSL’s. Any other time, I’ll either order an iced caramel Macchiato or an iced caramel coffee.

 

9. Favorite thing to do when bored:

Youtube.. it’s a serious guilty pleasure of mine. There are several youtubers I keep up with and watch consistently.

 

10. Weird phobias:

Ladybugs. I hate them so much. Funny story, one actually landed on me in bed one night while I was on my laptop. It scared me so bad that I threw my laptop and it busted my lip.

 

11. Favorite places to shop:

Nordstrom is always my go-to because I can find everything, but I also really love ASOS and Revolve.

 

12. Favorite flowers:

Pink peonies, I would have them all over the house if I could!

 

13. Celebrity crush:

Harry Styles! I am going to his concert next year and I can assure you I am not okay.

 

14. When I was younger:

I took acting classes and workshops when I was 12. I was very into it. My acting teacher was even on All My Children back in the day. Somewhere out there is a VHS tape of me doing an improv scene about Jesse McCartney.. gold.

 

15. Place I want to travel to:

London. I have had a fascination with London since I was about 10 years old. I had plans to go after I graduated high school and again to study abroad in college, but both times fell through.

 

16. Broken bones:

In 8th grade, I got in a tubing accident while I was at the lake with some of my friends. When we fell off the tube, my face slammed into the back of her head and I broke my nose. I ended up having to have surgery to correct the damage, so now I jokingly tell people I had a nose job haha

 

17. My humor:

I speak sarcasm like a second language. If you can keep up, props to you haha

 

18. Middle name:

My middle name (which you probably already know if you follow me on Insta) is Lorraine. I hated my first name growing up and wanted people to call me Lorraine. That never worked lol

 

19. My personality:

I like to think of myself as an introverted extrovert. Growing up I was always very dramatic (still am to be fair) and had to be the center of attention. I lived to make people laugh. After I graduated high school, I became very awkward and struggled to express my personality to others. It’s still something I’m trying to overcome.

 

20. My current relationship:

LOL.

 

21. Fav junk food: 

Sour gummy worms. Unhealthy obsession.. like you have no idea.

 

22. My hair:

I dyed my hair dark brown my junior year of high school because I was tired of being a blonde. For whatever reason, I kept it for 2 years. I try to forget about it.

 

23. Funny story:

I can’t even make this up, but when I was a sophomore in college, I dragged my parents to a dog meet and greet. You’re probably wondering what the heck that is… and it’s exactly what it sounds like haha It was for this instafamous dog – @tunameltsmyheart 

Flower Print Cold Shoulder Dress

DRESS: Shopbop SHOES: Sam Edelman HANDBAG: Louis Vuitton 

Hey y’all, happy August! I can’t believe we are already in August (my birthday month!) You might’ve seen this dress on my Instagram a while back, so I’m excited to finally share all the details on the blog. I was browsing Revolve (as I too often do) and came across this cold shoulder dress. I thought it was so unique and I knew I had to have it.

While this may not be an everyday sort of dress, I feel like it’s great for a nice dinner or a special occasion (I had plans to wear mine to a wedding!) I think because the details are so unique, it’s very easy to accessorize. I just paired it with my favorite Sam Edelman heeled sandals and a scalloped ring (I forgot earrings, whoops).

I’m a huge fan of anything cold shoulder, I think it’s flattering on just about everyone. Not to mention, it’s a trend that can carry over into fall as well! Speaking of fall, is anyone else ready for it to be here besides me?? Well… after my birthday I’ll be ready!

I actually had an early birthday celebration with my best friends this weekend. We had a nice dinner and spent some time in Nashville. I had a great time! I hope you guys have had a good weekend whatever you got up to!

Keep Palm and Carry On

DRESS: Behind The Glass Boutique | WEDGES: Steve Madden (on sale!) | EARRINGS: Kendra Scott | SUNGLASSES: DIFF Eyewear (use code: CASEYDIFF for 25% off)

Long time, no see!! I am so sorry I haven’t had a post up in a while. If you follow me on Instagram (@Casey_Lorraine) you would have seen that I was traveling in Canada for a week (check out my vlog if you haven’t already!) so that’s why I’ve been a little behind. But I’m finally back to share this adorable look with you!

If you know me at all, I am a huge fan of the brand Show Me Your Mumu. They have the most beautiful prints (like this gorgeous palm print) and patterns and their pieces are just really unique! My dress came from Behind the Glass boutique (btgauburn.com), a new fav of mine! They aren’t your typical boutique! In addition to carrying the usual styles that boutiques carry, they also carry brands like Show Me Your Mumu and Free People – two of my favs! Plus, they have free shipping over $50!

Back to my dress though, I had a slightly unhealthy obsession when I saw it. Palm print is huge right now, so I was immediately drawn to it. Not to mention the adorable tassel details on the back! I also loved the fact that it had a halter neckline. The colors are bright and beautiful and pop perfectly against a good tan haha!

Everyday Curls With T3

CURLING WAND: T3 

I’m so excited to share this post with you all! I get asked quite a bit about how I curl my hair or what products I use. T3 was kind enough to reach out to me and send these products for me to try out and share my opinion with you all!

Photography: Logan Jernigan

Let me start off by saying T3 is a company I have been familiar with for quite some time now. I had always seen other bloggers sharing posts about them and their products. Some of my favorite bloggers talked about them so much that I purchased one of their products several months ago. I was very impressed by the quality, so I was definitely looking forward to trying out some more of their products.

They sent me a few things, but for this particular post, I’m going to be focusing on their Whirl Trio. For those of you who aren’t familiar, it is a curling wand that comes with three interchangeable barrels. It also happens to be one of their best-selling items! I used the largest (1.5″) barrel to achieve my curls. A lot of bloggers I follow use the 1″ barrel, but I found the curls too tight for my preference.

In order to achieve my everyday curls, I start by taking 1″ sections of hair and wrapping them around the barrel. I let the section stay on the barrel for about 5-10 seconds before letting the curl fall into my hand to cool (I also photographed this step above). This helps preserve the shape a little better. I continue these steps until my hair is completely curled. At this point, I will typically comb my fingers through my hair to make my curls a little more relaxed and loose. And that’s it!

One thing that really impresses me about this product is how soft my hair is after I use it (same with their blow dryer!). I wouldn’t expect that after using so much heat! You can genuinely tell that this is a high quality product. I also have to comment on appearance of the product. I am a sucker for packaging and the design of products, and T3 does an amazing job! They have a white and rose gold theme with a lot of their products – they are beautiful!

I hope you found this post helpful! Don’t hesitate to ask me any questions about these products. T3 also sent me a blow dryer and two curling iron barrels, so I might discuss those in a future post if enough people would be interested.

Orange Printed Romper

ROMPER: C/MEO COLLECTIVE WEDGES: STEVE MADDEN | HANDBAG: LOUIS VUITTON NECKLACE: BAUBLEBAR (I wear this with everything!) EARRINGS: KENDRA SCOTT 

As soon as I saw this romper, I knew it had to be mine! I don’t own anything like it, and it makes such a beautiful statement piece! I normally don’t go for orange, but it was calling my name!

 I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend! I’ve been so excited to share this look with you. I ordered this romper from Revolve, and it has since sold out. However, I did find it in a couple sizes on another website! I thought it was so cute online, but it was much more beautiful in person. I think my favorite part about it are the sleeves! They are very exaggerated, but I think they make the look more unique.

I couldn’t help but pair my favorite wedges with this. The cognac color paired perfectly with the bright orange! I typically go with minimal accessories, so I added my favorite layering necklace and a pair of rose gold earrings. I think this is the perfect look for summer, especially if you’re rocking a nice tan!

In other news, I was notified last week that I am now a member of rewardStyle! For those of you who follow me on Instagram, I already announced this. Basically, this means that if you download the liketoknowit app, then you can screenshot or “like” my photos to directly shop my looks! This was a huge goal of mine, so it was exciting to receive the news!
