Old Navy: Dress | Target: Grey sneakers | Jack Rogers: Sandals | Gap: Jean Jacket | Amazon: leather watch band | Kendra Scott: Necklace

My go-to outfits these days are definitely t-shirt dresses, they are so easy and can be worn in so many different ways. I love to throw a jean jacket over them on the cooler spring days with a pair of sneakers, or a pair of Jacks on summer days. I love this particular t-shirt dress because I love the pop of blue at the top, I love blue and yellow together. 
Old Navy is my favorite place to find these dresses and they are at such an affordable price. This one is on sale for only 18$ right now! If you are on a budget like me, Old Navy is a great place to get good deals on cute items.

Pajamas are one of those items I have a guilty pleasure for (I get it from my momma). I get super hot at night so I prefer pajama sets that are shorts instead of pants. In the summer I spend a lot of time in my pj's and so I love light and comfortable sets to hang out in. These sets range from pricey to less expensive.

Is it weird if I say that I that I sleep better when my pajamas are cute? This is sort of true for me because sometimes when I can't sleep if I change my top then all of a sudden I get ten times more comfortable (is that weird?).

This past weekend was my college graduation. I received a bachelors degree in Psychology from The College of Saint Rose. It was a bittersweet moment because it is an amazing feeling to be done with school but I also can't believe my college years are over. There are so many things that I learned not only academically but about myself as well. For one caramel macchiatos from Starbucks make studying a lot more interesting and drawing picture examples in my notes help me to really learn the material. But I also learned that my body does not handle stress very well and that a good cry is sometimes what you need the most. Through the ups and downs, it was all worth it. I can't believe the next chapter of my life has just begun.

I Graduated College!!

I am so excited about this "blog reboot", as you may know, I took some time off from my blog it was mostly due to school (more to come on that later). I think that taking this break was the best thing for me because I feel better and more excited to jump back into blogging than ever before. Taking this time away really made me realize how much I did miss blogging.

As you can see I did decide to change my blog name from petiteinherpearls to bleuandwhit. I feel as though petiteinherpearls was not a name that fit me and my life any longer. I am beginning a new chapter in my life and I felt like I needed a semi-new start. Bleuandwhit is the name I choose because I feel as though the bleu part is fresh and clean and the whit just sort of flowed.


I hope you stick around for this next chapter and follow along on this journey with me. For the first time ever I have no idea where my life is going to go and I could not be more excited and terrified at the same time.

I partnered with Neutrogena to talk about their new products Gel Cleanser and Acne Proofing face wash. Acne and bad skin is something that I have always struggled with throughout my life. There has always been one company that has worked well for me and that my dermatologists have always recommended and that's Neutrogena. Not only have I struggled with acne but my skin is also very sensitive to certain products but Neutrogena products always work the best for me. Neutrogena's new product called Acne Proofing is my new favorite face cleanser. With the salicylic acid as such a powerful ingredient in the face, cleanser helps to break the cycle of acne.


I use both products twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. I have honestly seen a difference in my skin since I started using this product. My little sister is in her early teenage years and I can tell she's been stealing some of my face wash because her face looks amazing. One of the best parts about Neutrogena is that their products are so inexpensive making it even easier to get clean and beautiful skin.

During the month of February, I took one of the longest breaks I think since I first started my blog, (this may not be true but it feels like the longest break ever to me). As some of you may know I am currently working on the last semester of my undergraduate degree. During the fall I had a tough semester which now can't even compare to this semester. I have never been more stressed out then I am with all the work and hurdles of this semester/year. I feel as though there is just one hurdle after the other to jump over in this past month and unfortunately this means that my blog was the last on my list of priorities. This actually broke my heart, I started this year and one of my goals was to throw myself completely into blogging because it is something that I am so passionate about. I'm not sure why I feel so strongly about writing this post this time after a break, maybe its because I'm feeling emotional about changes that are in the near future, or maybe because I had a goal and I didn't succeed with it. I think it's a combination of a bunch of different reasons. Just now as I read this I feel guilty that I'm not working on homework, which is the worst feeling in the world.

I think what I'm trying to say is that it's okay not to succeed on the first time on something. This is something that I'm learning how to cope with. Failing for the first time is OKAY, hell failing on the second and third time is okay too. Putting something on the back burner is okay also when something important needs to come first. BUT you should never forget about your dreams because your dream in life should be and is the most important aspect of your life. I think I read somewhere that Walt Disney was told he wasn't creative enough and a basketball player whose name I cannot remember didn't make his high school basketball team. Whatever your dream is that you want to achieve, never stop working towards it no matter how many breaks you need to take along the way.

So with that being said, I am back from my break and better because of it!


Taking a Break from Blogging and Why it's Okay

Today all of the school in my area closed due to a large amount of snow we are supposed to receive today and I can honestly say I am soooo over the winter. It makes me so jealous to see all of these bloggers who live in warmer climates I live vicariously through them. So, on this snow day to make myself feel better I have compiled a small list of all the items that are on my wishlist for the upcoming spring season.

Tops:
There are so many cute tops that are available for this spring season, this off the shoulder top with the lemon detailing is so cute and gives off such a spring vibe. I have a thing for off the shoulder tops as you can tell through just this list. Both of these tops from Francesca's have such beautiful detailing on them. I'm also in love with this oversized tunic, which is a little pricey but I can see getting so much use out of this that I think it would be a good investment.

Accessories:
How cute is this Kate Spade bag from their new spring line?! The whole line just screams out spring vibes, they even have a bag that looks like a picnic basket, I mean how cute?! I also added these aviator sunglasses to my wishlist, because I have been wanting ray ban ones but I feel like I'm not an aviator person so I don't want to spend tons of money when these rose gold ones from Target for 17$ are just as cute.

Shoes:
I feel ashamed because I may have said how ugly I thought mules were awhile back and now I own way too many pairs of mules. These pink mules from Target will be the next pair to add to my collection. I also found these booties, which are exactly what I have been looking for, I think these are the perfect transition from winter to spring shoe and they look so cute with so many outfits. These are perfect to wear with a dress but also with white jeans and this top.

If I didn't want spring to come soon I definitely want spring to come now after going through all these items.
