Little Shorty

16 Jun

Since my apartment is small, I still keep out-of-season clothing at home (home=where I grew up and until further notice it will always be “home”). The weather has been a little unpredictable with some really hot days this spring, making some days perfect shorts weather but alas, mine were at home. When I went to my lake house for Memorial Day weekend, I made sure to stop and pick up all my shorts in my closet at home. I quickly threw them in a bag and left. When I returned to my apartment I unpacked the shorts and decided to try them on and make sure they still fit I still liked them all. Well the good news is I only disliked one pair, the bad news, most pairs are not appropriate for my grown up life (this is my first summer in the real world). My current collection of shorts is casual and consists of madras, jean cut offs, and bright J Crew Chinos. All perfect for day time events but not suitable for evening activities in the city. This weekend my mission is to find some girls-night-out appropriate pairs.

“Sail Away, Sail Away”

11 Apr

Nautical is coming back this season and I couldn’t be happier. I spend every summer at my families lake house and have always loved anything that makes me think of sailing, summer, and boats. Designers are using the theme in a subtle way that I think it is genius. Below are a few of my favorites.

Brrrr…It’s Cold In Here

5 Mar

Both my roommates have left me for warmer weather, one in Brazil and one in Marco Island. I too am going on a family vacation but not for almost two whole months! Blah. Watching them shop, pack, and get excited for their trip, I couldn’t help but think about my future island adventure. I decided to make an inspiration board for what I think is essential for the beach. Enjoy 🙂


1. A solid beach tote is really important for lugging all your goodies from the pool to the beach and back again. I am obsessed with this new one from Vineyard Vines.
2.  When it comes to sandals I am a die-hard Rainbow fan but couldn’t help but LOVE this nautical flops from VV!

3. Even though the color is super a tad obnoxious, they are very high on my wish list. There is nothing more I love than pink+green, summer, and Lilly Pulitzer and THESE combine them all in one. Perfect.

4. White is great for summer. It makes any tan look better. I have always had a soft spot for eyelets which is why I’m lusting over this Lilly dress.

5. Even though I have vowed to stop spending obscene amounts of money on sunglasses, I want these. Chanel, yum.

6.  I shouldn’t be allowed in Sephora, it’s bad. I always buy unnecessary things. However, it has benefited me in a few ways, like this Bobbi Brown tinted face lotion. The plus? SPF 15.

7. I am not able to read nearly as much as I would like which is why I love vacation. I get to sit on the beach, bask in the sun, and read. I recently purchased Shopaholic and Mini. I am a love of Sophia Kinsella and all the Shopaholic books.I also love Emily Giffin and am happy I haven’t had a chance to read her newest book, perfect for my trip. One of my favorite books is The Nanny Diaries, I have read it too many times. I heard there was a sequel and must get it for my vacation.

8. Can’t forget the iPod!

9. I recently purchased this hat from JCrew. One word: Obsessed.

 

 

Things that make me happy today:

1. Babysitting my roomie’s dog while she is away.

2. Going home for the weekend to celebrate my Dad’s birthday.

3. It is finally Friday, it has been a long week.
