Although #TasselTuesday will not become a weekly hashtag for my blog, I felt like today it needed to be official. This year I have become somewhat infatuated with tassel jewelry. I just think they are so cute and fun! I have been keeping up with various jewelry lines who sell tassel jewelry but I have found that a lot of them are very pricey.
Finally, I found a jeweler who was selling her line at a boutique in my college town! I felt as though this was a sign, so I investigated. Lou.C. Jewelry was founded by Sarah Cox in Nashville, Tennessee. She has really cute, vibrant jewelry. In Oxford, Mississippi (my college town) you can find her jewelry at Katherine Beck (an adorable gift shop!!).
Here are some of the earrings that I am currently swooning over from Lou.C. Jewelry…
Turquoise tassel earrings with large sea green stones $58.00
Hot pink handmade tassels + crystal gem $50.00
3.5″ turquoise tassels + blue stone $50.00
Orange tassels + turquoise stone $54.00
Druzy + purple tassels $55.00
Bright orange tassel earrings with hot pink chalcedony stones $50.00
These tassel earrings are so cute and, trust me, I’ve compared many other jewelers and have yet to find someone who has great prices like Lou.C. Jewelry!
Today’s #FavoritesFriday features fun, bright colors for this summer!
The ‘Beaded Snake Gown’ by Mara Hoffman — $1,397. This dress obviously exceeds my budget, but #FavoritesFriday doesn’t have a budget! #FavoritesFriday is all about what are my current favorite things, no matter the price. This dress has a gorgeous back and the colorful detailed pattern is simply stunning.
Oscar de la Renta ‘Short Dotted Beaded Tassel Clip-On Earrings’ in ‘Sorbet’ from Neiman Marcus — $241. These earrings are so beautiful and so fun! As usual, I’m talking about tassels on my blog. I just can’t get enough of them!!
Joie ‘A La Plage Nice’ Metallic Thong Sandals in rose gold from Shopbop — $125. These shoes are a perfect example of a classic pair of thong sandals. These sandals come in several different colors and are perfect to pair with any outfit!
The ‘Bella Flamingo Raffia Clutch’ by Elaine Turner — $178. This bright pink clutch is made out of beach grass raffia with a genuine leather trim. This Elaine Turner clutch is perfect for this summer. I imagine pairing it with white jeans, wedges, a colorful top, and colorful/gold jewelry.

As a senior at the University of Mississippi and a proud member of Kappa Kappa Gamma (Delta Rho chapter), I know a thing or two about the ins and outs and the dos and don’ts of sorority fashion in the South. Being a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I have made both lifelong memories and friends.
Now that we’ve addressed the cliché why-I-love-my-sorority-talk, check out some of the must-haves for sorority girls in the South!
The Lilly Pulitzer Jumbo Agenda (top left) — An absolute must in order to stay organized in college and plan all of your sorority social and philanthropy events! This agenda comes in many fun, colorful prints!
The iPhone cover in Kappa Kappa Gamma print…of course! (middle top row) — Keep your phone covered, safe, and cute!
Pearl stud earrings (top right) — These are my go-to earrings on a daily basis while going to school, and pretty much every other day too! They’re an absolute classic. These earrings are the Tiffany & Co. Signature Pearl Earrings.
Rent the Runway! — This dress here is the ‘Cheetah Crawl Dress’ Mark & James by Badgley Mischka (bottom left) — I somewhat recently discovered Rent the Runway and I think it is down right brilliant! Seriously people, this website is GOLDEN. Rent the Runway is fantastic for date parties, formals, and other social events where you wouldn’t be caught dead in the same dress. If you want to know more about Rent the Runway and how it works, read my blog post about Rent the Runway.
The Tory Burch ‘Jaden’ Tote (middle bottom row) — Well I don’t have this, but I sure would love to! Every girl needs a cute and colorful tote to carry their homework and textbooks in.
The Metal Script monogram Necklace from Moon and Lola (bottom right) — I found out about Moon and Lola while reading a magazine years ago, I have loved it ever since. I never really monogrammed many things before college, just my Jon Hart Luggage, a scarf, towels, and bedding…okay so maybe I monogrammed a couple of things. But when I started my freshman year at Ole Miss I was in awe of exactly how many things girls (and even boys!) were monogrammed. I mean you name it: key chains, bath curtains, rain jackets, sweatshirts, Nike shorts…the list goes on and on! I immediately followed suit and I haven’t stopped since. My mom always said I have the perfect initials for a monogram (MHE). I’m going to be in quite the predicament whenever I get married…oops.
Christmas shopping can be fun, but it can also tug on your wallet. But it doesn’t have to be an expensive experience. Plan ahead this year! Keep track of all of your favorite store’s sales and beat the crowd! These are a few great gifts that I have found online that are under $50. I will be posting more gift guides throughout the holiday season, so stay tuned!
