My Favorite 2018 Spring Trends

Happy Friday friends!! I’m so excited about today’s post, talking about my favorite trends for this spring! I have been loving what I’ve seen on the runways and what stores are putting out for this season so far. I’m hoping it’ll warm up here in Maryland soon, so I can start putting some outfits together!

White Booties

I am LOVING the white boot trend happening right now. It’s a little retro, a little That 70’s show… digging it. I really like how they look with “Mom Jeans” or a cute wrap dress. But they are so versatile and really make a look pop.


Graphic T’s

I have always liked the classic combo of jeans and a tee, but my love for graphic tee’s has been growing into more of an obsession lately.. not hating it. One of my favorite types of t-shirts I’ve been seeing a lot lately are white t’s with red lettering (like the “sassy” one I linked below).


Square Necklines

This style is everywhere right now, from tank tops to bathing suits. It’s a super flattering cut, for any body type. I really like the look of a square neck bodysuit with high-waisted shorts, gold jewelry and a belt.

Anorak Jackets/Windbreaker

Athleisure has been a big trend for a while now, so it makes sense that sporty windbreakers are also on trend for spring. If the sporty chic style isn’t for you, I also linked an anorak jacket from Free People that I’m loving for spring.


I’m excited to experiment with fringe this season. Fringe is just so fun! I love the look of little crop tops with a fringe mini skirt, or a fringe jacket with denim shorts and booties. There are so many different ways to incorporate this trend with items you already have in your closet!


Sheer has been a big trend for months now, and I’m excited to transition it into spring. My favorite way to wear this trend is with sheer and lace bodysuits, with lots of denim. I love the mix of the two textures! Sheer is the perfect way to amp up your outfit for a night out.


What trends are you looking forward to rocking this spring?!

Q&A: Why I Started My Blog

Happy Friday! I’m doing something a little different this week. This is my first Question and Answer post, so that you all can get to know me a little better! Let me know if you like these posts and I’ll do them more often. Ps: I asked for questions on Instagram, so to have your questions included next time, be sure to follow me!

What made you want to start blogging?

I needed a creative outlet. I have always loved fashion, beauty and interior design. Starting a blog was a great way for me to express myself that way. Working in the financial industry, I don’t really get to be creative, and it was starting to drive me nuts! Blogging let’s me be myself and bring my creative side out.

How do you manage your time being a blogger? I.e accomplishing your personal and business tasks. Do you have a system in place to keep it all organized?

This has been something that I’ve been struggling with for a while now. BALANCE. I am not the best at time management, or being organized. Because of that, I get really stressed out and it can make blogging feel like a chore sometimes – which defeats the whole purpose!

I live by my planner, it’s a life saver for me! In order for me to utilize my planner as best as I can, I need to write in everything. The time I’m at work, when I’m eating dinner, when I’m writing, taking photos, etc. I try to write it down to the hour, to make sure I can fit everything into my busy schedule. I make sure to leave time for me, too. Whether that’s watching a show, reading a book, take a nap… I need time to detox.

I try and plan my blog posts out a month ahead of time. By this I mean, I’m looking at April right now, and writing in my planner, what kinds of posts I’m going to write, and when. I don’t write my posts ahead of time, I write them a day or two before I want to post them. I think taking that next step and writing them ahead of time as well, will help me to better stay on schedule.

If you have any tips or tricks for staying organized and on schedule, please leave them below! Again, this is something I’m still working on and trying to master.

What do you do for your full time job?

I work for a MassMutual branch doing Marketing and Event planning! However, I just got my Life and Health license to become an insurance broker and I’m working on getting my Series 7 and Series 66 to become a financial advisor!

Any advice for someone who wants to start a blog?

Just jump in and do it! It’s going to be very intimidating at first, but you shouldn’t second guess yourself. If it’s something you love you should give it a try. As long as you are genuine, and stay true to yourself, that will be what makes you unique.

When I first started my blog, I quickly realized how many fashion bloggers there are out there. I was trying to be like everyone else that was successful and I quickly realized that I had lost myself and my style, in doing so. I remember looking at my closet and my Instagram, just a few months ago, at some of the clothing items I had bought, and I thought… this isn’t me? I would never reach for these pieces. That was when I needed to do a serious reality check and reevaluate my style, and who/what I wanted to portray. Just because an item is trending on Instagram, throughout the fashion world, doesn’t mean you need to have it. This was something I had to realize. Buy items because YOU love them, not because other people love them.

What has been the hardest part about blogging for you?

It’s a ton of work, a lot more work than I anticipated. Working a full time job, having a social life, trying to be a successful blogger, staying healthy, etc. It can be really overwhelming. The hardest part for me to keep up with has been keeping my Instagram game strong. In order for my Instagram to grow I feel like I need to be on it constantly! And that’s just not me and frankly I don’t have time for that.

I’m struggling with how important Instagram is for fashion bloggers. You need to post once a day at least and always be commenting on other bloggers photos. I’m sure a lot of you know about Instagram’s new algorithm as well, which has made being noticed on Instagram even harder.

I’ve learned that I care more about the quality of my Instagram’s than the quantity. I was obsessed with how many followers I had at all times, and it was making the journey too stressful for me. I will lose 30-40 followers in a day, but then gain 30 followers back. It’s always fluctuating, so as important as how many followers you have is, I’ve tried to enjoy it more and focus on the quality.


I hope you all learned a little bit more about me! I really enjoyed answering your questions. Feel free to leave some more below and I can do another Q&A soon!

Rocksbox Review – February 2018

If you haven’t signed up for Rocksbox yet, what are you waiting for!? I look forward to receiving my box every month and I’m never disappointed! I mean, unlimited jewelry?! Count me in.

To read a full description about what exactly Rocksbox is, click here.

The first piece is by Sophie Harper, it is the Starburst and Crystal Pendant necklace. This necklace is super dainty, which is something that I really like! I’m not a big fan of chunky jewelry. It’s adjustable too! The second piece is also by Sophie Harper, they are the Zig Zag Stacking Rings in Crystal and Black Pave. I’ve been wearing these every day with my usual rings. They’re really comfortable considering the jewels go all the way around. They also look really great apart, as well as stacked together! The last piece I received were the gold Lulu Studs by Perry Street. These earrings are gorgeous! I love the size of them because they’re wearable for everyday, but they still make a statement!

January 2018 Favorites

Helloo friends! I hope the New Year is treating you all well! Have you been keeping to your resolutions?? I love to read and watch bloggers monthly favorites, but I’ve never gotten around to sharing mine. When I finally remember to do them, its like the middle of the next month – oops. As you can tell I’m very organized.

So I’m going to attempt to do this every month this year and we’ll see how it goes! Let me know your monthly favorites in the comments below, I’m always looking for new things to try!


TULA Cleanser – This cleanser has been a life changer for me! Not to be dramatic, but it has done amazing things for my skin. My skin feels so smooth and soft, and I haven’t had any breakouts.

Essence Lash Extension Mascara – I have used this mascara almost every day the past month. It’s a one-step lash extension mascara, which I much prefer over the typical 3-step lash extension mascara. It makes my lashes so long and full, in no time! AND its only … $4.99.

Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette – This has been my go-to palette this month. It is the perfect everyday nude palette (and it smells like chocolate).

Batiste Dry Shampoo – Dry shampoo has been my saving grace, especially the Bastiste brand! My hair, just like my skin, tends to be on the oily side, and I’m training my hair, to not wash it every day. On those in between days I rely on dry shampoo to absorb the oils and give me volume!

Kopari Coconut Melt – was skeptical of this product, being that it’s simply coconut oil, with a higher price tag than you’ll find at the supermarket. However, I did my research and this product has done amazing things for my skin this winter. I use this every single time I shave my legs, after I get out of the shower, to prevent against razor burn and help with my inevitably dry skin.


Hello Fresh – My boyfriend and I have found a new obsession… and that is Hello Fresh. If you’ve never heard of Hello Fresh before it’s a meal kit delivery service, that sends you everything you need, pre portioned, fresh produce, to make your dinner from scratch. We love it because we aren’t wasting any food, we’re learning amazing, easy recipes and eating great!

The Crown – I started watching the Netflix show, The Crown, this month and I’m hooked! It’s a historical drama, about a young Queen Elizabeth II.

Almond Milk Creamer – Nestle Coffee-Mate, all natural, almond milk creamer. It tastes amazing, and it has much less sugar, and none of the “bad stuff” that you find in regular, sugar-heavy creamers.

SongsTequila by Dan and Shay, Let Me Go by Hailee Seinfeld, Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton.


Black Jeans – If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have noticed that I have been living in my American Eagle high-rise black jeans. They are SO comfortable, don’t stretch out, and they fit like a glove.

Black Booties – Another staple the past couple of months, have been my black booties from Steve Madden. They go with absolutely everything and they’re so comfortable.

Zara Suede Pants – If I could pick one word to describe these pants it would be – chic. They’re just cool!! I think they’re super unique, even though suede has been all over the place this year. They’re also really comfortable and only $40!

Rocksbox – If you follow my blog, or my Instagram, you know how much I have been loving Rocksbox. Who doesn’t love getting jewelry delivered to their doorstep every month!? To get your first set for free go to and use the code: courtmorricexoxo at checkout! Month 1 | Month 2 | Month 3

Rocksbox Review – Month 3!

If you follow my blog you know how much I LOVE Rocksbox! If you have never heard of Rocksbox, it’s a $21/month subscription box that will send you three pieces of jewelry every month. You can try them on and wear them as much as you’d like. Then buy the pieces you love and return the rest! The $21 subscription price will go towards the pieces you decide to keep. Being able to test them out at home with your jewelry and clothing is genius. My other two boxes are posted here and here!

This months box is my favorite so far. The first piece in the box, is the Aster Magnolia Duster earrings. These gold, dangly earrings are absolutely gorgeous and so light weight! I wore them last weekend for a fun night out in Annapolis! I paired them with a suede jacket and black booties. My second piece is the Sophie Harper Pavé Bar Slider Bracelet. This has been my favorite piece to wear in this box. I love pairing it with my MVMT watch (see above). The last piece in my box this month, is the Rudiment Pixley Ring. This ring has jewels all around the band, which can make it kind of uncomfortable to wear.

Watch Gift Ideas


Currently Wearing: Velvet Bomber


Hellooo friends! Happy 2018! I can’t believe how fast 2017 went by. I’m thinking of doing a post reflecting on 2017 and what I’m hoping for in 2018. Let me know in the comments below if that’s something you’d like to see!

Today I wanted to talk about this velvet bomber that I have been L O V I N G. This may actually be the first bomber jacket I’ve ever owned. I bought it during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July. (Check out what I purchased, here!) It was my favorite item that I purchased from the sale, but also the one that was most out of my comfort zone. What stood out to me immediately was the color. I love the burnt orange, and that is has a little bit of shimmer.

The easiest way to style this jacket is by wearing all black, like a choose for this look. That keeps the jacket as the statement piece of the outfit. Surprisingly though, it goes with a lot of things! It’s super warm, but you can layer heavy sweaters underneath as well, or a thermal like I did. Or you could even layer a hoodie underneath, which would be really cute and make the outfit more casual.

I paired it with black jeans – can you tell that I’ve been living in these jeans the past few months? I feel like they’re all l I wear. They’re from American Eagle, you’ve seen me talk about them a bunch of million times – because they’re the best! You could also wear black heeled booties, instead of the grey ones I wore, for dinner or a night out.

If this post taught you anything, it’s to experiment with your wardrobe and go for things that catch your eye. Take it from me – it’s really fun.
