Hopefully..

30 Apr

I’m still in Nashville but I wrote this post on Friday. I wish I could give you an update on what I’m doing but alas I am not a psychic. However, I can tell you what I was planning on doing.

This.

 

You see, my friends are all leaving well before my plane takes off.  I don’t have to leave the hotel until around 2PM which means I will conveniently have  all morning and a good portion of the afternoon to relax.

In the sun.

 By the pool.

Pure bliss.

Let’s all cross our fingers this is what I am actually doing.

Where was I?

27 Apr

You may be wondering where I have been. Or not. Either way I’ve been very sick the past few days and could not muster the energy to even look at my computer, let alone get down to blogging.

But I’m back and full of antibiotics.

Thankfully I am feeling better becuase this weekend I am headed on a mini vacation to Nashville and I could not be more excited.

Except for the fact that I have to leave my apartment at 4:30 AM since I have a 6 AM flight. Woof.

I’ve never been and I don’t really know what to except. Any suggestions on where I should go?

Also I’m hoping to stalk run into this old friend of mine:

I think we might meet for coffee on Monday morning. I have a few song ideas to run past her.

Spend or Save: Clutch Love

24 Apr

I actually saw and fell in love with the cheaper version of this clutch first.

Hand made with love by Kslademade, the accessory company is one of my most favorite brands to watch grow.

It has quickly become my favorite clutch and even though it is royal blue and pink I rarely find it does not match my outfit.


SAVE / SPEND

So, what would you do? Spend or save

Summer Picnic

20 Apr

There is something about these recently warm days that make me want to eat every meal outside. I pick restaurants based upon if they have an option of outdoor seating. Living in a city and eating at restaurants like this give me the feeling of a picnic.

In the summer months there is nothing better than a picnic. They always make me feel nostalgic and I adore their effortless simplicity. Whether you are having a picnic with girlfriends, family or a special someone, there is nothing better than eating outside surrounded by flowers, nature and the shining sun.

(Except maybe the unavoidable few bugs that will join the party)

When I go to a picnic I like to be comfortable in an outfit that allows me to easily move. Who knows when the urge to do a cart-wheel or climb a tree will spark. Picnics always make me feel like a child again.

New Favorite Quote

19 Apr

Just stumbled across this quote and had to take a quick break from work to share.

I think it describes me to a tea.

I choose the latter. Which do you identify with?

Edith A. Miller

17 Apr

I recently learned about this company from my deadly daily J. Crew emails. One look at the image in my inbox and I feel in love. I have to be honest, I kind of forgot all about it until today while pursuing the new items on Shopbop.

Stripes in every color, shape and form are everywhere this season which I love but sometimes there is nothing better than a classically simple striped shirt.
