Favorite Things

Here are a couple of my favorite things from my Instagram recently!

  1. Forever 21 Pouches

IMG_1668

I have the “Simple” one with me constantly to hold all of the random junk that would otherwise float around in my purse, and the other to hold pens for school. At only $4.50 each they were a steal!

2. Home Goods Flamingo Tumbler

IMG_1794

This baby has been going EVERYWHERE with me. Not only does it make my caramel macchiatos even more fun, it was only $3 in the clearance section!

3. Charles & Charles Rose

IMG_2056

Not gonna lie, I picked it for the cute bottle, but I’d totally pick it again. IT’S SO PRETTY (and tasty). I finished it off while watching the balloons from the NJ Balloon Festival float through my back yard.

4. Finding a Coke with my Name on it!

This was just exciting. I’m easily amused.

5. H&M Pineapple Keychain

OB-Sessed with this keychain. It was only $4.99, it’s gold, and it’s a pineapple. What more could you want?

Stay tuned for more of my favorite things!

Playing Catch Up

I know I am SO behind on updating this blog, but I finally have time to sit down and put this together.

Last week I wore this adorable skirt from Macy’s paired with a shirt from Forever 21, heels from Aldo, and my favorite Kate Spade cross body bag. My elephant necklace is also from Forever 21, and the tassel wand is from Studio Mucci; I totally felt like a fairy princess!

This look would be perfect for a fancy dinner out with the boyfriend (hint, hint, wink, wink).

I also wore one of my favorite summer rompers from Lilly Pulitzer! It is so bright and colorful and it just puts me in a good mood.

I paired it with my new Kate Spade bangle and Jack Rogers, but I have also worn this with wedges to make it dressier.

What are your favorite summer looks?

Senior Week

For the rest of senior week, I had a ton of activities every day!

Thursday we had dinner and went to Rascal’s, which is an arcade. I wore white jeans, Jack Rogers wedges, and a Lilly Pulitzer silk tank.

For the champagne brunch, I wore a maxi dress from Forever 21 and the Perry Street necklace from my Rocks Box!

One of my sorority sisters also wanted to take pictures in front of the Muhlenberg sign!

And here are my Roomies and I at the final Senior Celebration!

IMG_0491

For Baccalaureate and dinner with my family at 1741 on the Terrace at Hotel Bethlehem, I wore a Lilly sundress I got at the sale last summer.

It was such a fun week!

Date Night

Last nightย I went out to dinner with my boyfriend!

IMG_7968

I wore a simple coral dress from American Eagle and dressed it up with my Jack Rogers wedges and some accessories.

IMG_7962

My necklace is from Forever 21, but it reminds me of the Lilly Pulitzer Goodie Goodie Necklace. It was a lot cheaper, and it doesn’t have the pink and green accents like the Lilly one does, so it goes with more outfits.

IMG_7989

I got this bag last year as a free gift from Lilly Pulitzer. it was supposed to be a different color, but they ran out of the original print and sent me this gold one instead (it perfectly matched a dress I ordered for a wedding!). I love it so much because it matches everything!

IMG_8002

I always lug around a huge tote, but when I go to dinner I like to have a smaller bag with just the essentials: YSL Lipgloss, Nirvana Black roller ball, and my favorite compact.

And heres me attempting to cutely twirl in my twirly dress… and almost falling down the hill!

Thanks to my boyfriend for a wonderful evening!

Scallops+Polka Dots=Perfection

Today I wore a new pair of shorts with some old favorites from my closet!

IMG_7932

IMG_7931

I had seen these J. Crew shorts all over tumblr, and had been coveting them for weeks before I found them in the clearance section. Luckily they still had my size, and for only $24 (using an extra 40% off code)! The scallop detail adds just the right amount of whimsy to a pretty classic look.

IMG_7892

I paired them with a plain dark navy t-shirt, my favorite Jack Rogers flats (similar), and aย Kate Spade bag.

And to anyone who’s wondering, I generally don’t have a problem mixing brown, black, and navy. Obviously in suiting situations or formal wear you should pick one and stick to it, but on a casual day I treat them all as neutrals.

To finish off the look, I added this Elephant Necklace from Forever 21! Recently they have really amped up their jewelry selections!

Shout out to my awesome boyfriend for constantly putting up with my fashion nonsense and for being my photographer!

Beach Babes

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately, I started working again and have been settling into my new house!

This coming week I will be heading to Beach Haven with my boyfriend’s family so I thought I would do a post on three different beach looks. It is so easy to have a different feel or style depending on your suit and the accessories you use!

Weekend in Boston

I spent the past couple days visiting one of my best friends, Lizzy, at Boston University! She’s taking a summer course, but had time to show me around for a couple days.

On the first day we went to Newbury Street, a very cute shopping area.

We also visited the Boston Common Public Garden. It has gorgeous landscaping, the George Washington Statue, and of course the Make Way for Ducklings statues.
