Mental Health: a person's condition with regards to their emotional, psychological, and social well-being.

With May being National Mental Health Month, I wanted to share a little bit about my own personal journey with mental health.

Boyfriend jeans are the best. As much as I love my skinny jeans, there's something so nice about a loose fit. I discovered my love for them when I found these ones at Old Navy.

Below, I'm sharing six of my favorite ways to style boyfriend jeans, from relaxed to business casual.

Currently // April to May

by Lavender Elizabeth, May 05, 2019

April may have been the weirdest weather I've ever experienced. There were bright and sunny days; two snowstorms; and some serious thunderstorms. I did, however, manage to have a wonderful month! I started in Charleston visiting my sister, then headed to San Francisco for a week with my university friends. The rest of the month was spent exploring new places in Chicago, watching the final season of Game of Thrones, enjoying Easter Brunch with my friends and family, and soaking up as much sunshine as I could.
