Red White and Blue - Memorial Day Weekend Must Haves

May 23, 2018

Memorial Day is almost here! It's considered the official kickoff of summer, especially near where I live. All the summer "hot spots" open up Memorial Day weekend since it's when it finally starts the get and stay warm up here.
My favorite part of Memorial Day weekend is all the barbeque food and the start of lake and pool days all summer long. I don't really have any plans for the holiday yet but I'm hoping to be spending it soaking up the sun near some water. Does anyone with a pool or a lake near by want to invite me over for the day? 

You can click on any of the pictures below to shop the items or find them all at the bottom of the post.


Obviously lots of red white and blue are a must for Memorial Day weekend. As much as I love style, I love comfort even more. Jumpsuits ad flowy dresses are perfect for looking super cute and also not having to worry about fixing this or adjusting that. This post wouldn't be complete without a patriotic bathing suit to wear for all the (hopefully) fun things you'll be doing.

What are your plans for this holiday weekend?









8 Dresses for Graduation-Class of 2018

May 5, 2018

This June will mark 2 years since my high school graduation and feels like the time has just flown by! 
A week from today (ahh!!) I will be walking across the stage again as I get my Associates Degree, the first of a few college degrees I plan on picking up along the way. In high school we weren't allowed to decorate our caps, so I'm going all out this time around. I'll be sharing the finished product with you guys over on my Instagram (@cuteandclassyblog) but let me know if you want a full tutorial! It won't be up in time for most college graduations, but hopefully I can help out some of my high school readers. 

I know a lot of people who don't think what you wear under your graduation gown matters all that much but that couldn't be farther from the truth! In most of the pictures you take, you're either going to have your gown unzipped or not even keep it on at all. You guys can see some of my high school graduation pictures and some DIY grad party ideas in this post

I know a lot of high schools (maybe colleges too) give the girls white gowns if that's one of their school colors, so I made sure to include a few white and lighter options for those of you who will be wearing those flimsy white caps and gowns. If you have a darker or black cap and gown, you have a lot more freedom with the colors you have on underneath. 

My biggest tip when picking your dress: POCKETS

Congratulations to all the graduated of the Class of 2018! Go on to do amazing things!!

Coffee Date no. 8 (with puppies!!) + Day Concert Outift

May 1, 2018

As per tradition when I take a little break from posting, I'm back with another Coffee Date. School has kept me super busy since I've gotten back from break, but we're in the final stretch of the semester and hopefully things will start to wind down soon.  

Playing with puppies!

Unfortunately the puppies in the picture aren't mine :( but, playing with them was the perfect way to spend the first nice day of spring we've had this year. Last weekend I went to OH Fest at my best friend's school and we had so much fun dancing our hearts out to A Boogie, so I wanted to throw in a little outdoor concert outfit inspo into this post for you guys. The shots aren't the best, but I wasn't really planning on doing a while post for it. 

I have to be honest, I haven't felt very inspired or motivated to post much lately. I've been super stressed out over school and what in going to be doing next year. I cannot believe that I'm going to be graduation from my school in less than 2 weeks! It's so crazy to me that I'll actually have a real college degree.
Now that I'm back, I really want to step up the blog and make this the best year yet for Cute & Classy! I'm not planning on a full rebrand but there's a lot of updates coming to the site, the newsletter and my social pages.

I'm really excited to work hard and put out higher quality content for you guys. I'm going to stick to one post a week for now so that I can really work hard on it, but there might be a few extras thrown in here or there. My Instagram theme has been getting a lot better if I do say so myself, but dang it, I don't know how people keep up with a white theme and post so frequently. I guess the key is to just take pictures of everything. To all my friends: I'm sorry in advance.

Now onto the things I've been binging on lately

Shows:

New Girl
Okay so this one is a re-watch, but with the new season I just had to start from the beginning to fully enjoy all the joy of Jessica Day and her roommates. If you need a good rom-com that (in my opinion) focuses more on the comedy, this is totally the show you need in your life. The episodes are short so you might find yourself finishing this one in a few weeks.

Scream Queens
I'm a little late to the party on this one. This show is so cheesy and over dramatic that it makes it funny. If you need something you can hate on but also get pulled into this is the perfect show.

Podcasts:

Views with David Dobrik and Jason Nash
If you like watching David's vlogs you definitely need to listen to this podcast. They talk about a bunch of behind the scenes stuff, and keep it super real about how much they make from tours and brand deals while also putting their usual comedy spin on things.

Insanely Chill with Cody Ko
This podcast is very appropriately named. It's super laid back and well, chill and it feels like you're in the room chatting with friends while you're listening to this. Of course Cody and his guests crack some pretty good jokes and chat about music and the other types of things Cody does on his YouTube channel. It's one of my favorites to listen to on long car rides by myself.

YouTube:

Whitney Simmons
Whitney is a super positive, quirky, booty goals lifestyle and fitness vlogger. I love watching her videos when I need a little more motivation to stick to my fitness regimen, a new workout or some food/ meal prep ideas. She also has the two cutest little pups in the world!
