Easter Outfit

On my Balance post, I asked for some post suggestions and one reader asked me to do an Easter outfit!  What I love about Easter is getting to wear fun bright colors and spending time with my family enjoying the holiday.  For my Easter Sunday I am going to be pulling out my favorite Lilly dress, Jack Rogers, and some fun accessories to finish off the look.  Here is a variation of what I will be wearing Sunday!

 
Easter Sunday
 
You can find the Lilly dress here, since I couldn't find a direct link picture on polyvore!  Also, I highly recommend checking out Nordstrom Rack for any sale Kate Spade items.  I recently bought my pink satchel there for around $180 and it was originally $350, so be on the look out for good deals like that!
 
What are you doing for Easter?  What do you normally wear?

Wishlist Wednesday

It has been such a long time since I made a "Wishlist Wednesday" post, mostly because there isn't much I have been really wanting needing to get; however, because it is spring, I have a few new items that I am really liking!
Wishlist Wednesday 4/15/14
1. C. Wonder Wedges: I thought these wedges were so cute and they actually look a little like the more expensive Tory Burch pair I have been eying lately.  They would go great with any spring outfit!
 
2. GiGi New York Clutch: No lie, I have wanted one of these since October.  They are perfect for any outfit, including prom haha.  I personally love the Iris Blue color!
 
3. J.Crew Factory Scarf: I got one of these last year and I absolutely adore it.  It is perfect for the spring weather, as it is nice and light.  The print on this one would be so much fun to style too!
 
4. Tulle Skirt: Just another thing I have been really wanting for a while.  I love the way these skirts can be styled and I would love to re-create a Sex and the City look if I purchased!
 
5. Jack Rogers Jelly Sandals: When it comes to sandals, I really like jelly sandals over everything else.  They are water-resistant, super easy to wear, and really comfortable; plus who doesn't love a fun pair of Jacks?
 
What is on your wishlist?

Balance


I feel like balance is something we all struggle with.  It is just so hard to find the perfect balance between school, friends, work, family and everything else in between; however, we just need to let life slide sometimes.  Not in a lackadaisical way, but more of a sitting back and letting life take you on a ride kind of way.  I have always been a strong believer that things, no matter how frustrating, will fall into place eventually; and that has been so true for me as of late.  Instead of majorly stressing over situations, I am just taking life one step at a time.  I have never felt better, although I do admit I have been slacking a little on the blog (no worries though!  I promise I am going to be a better blogger!).  This outlook honestly makes everything so much easier for me to handle and leaves me feeling relaxed and rested, and reader to get back on track with my life after everything that has happened over the couple of weeks.
 
 How do you find your balance? 

P.S. Does anyone have any post requests?  I would love to hear your ideas!

A Day at the Park

I am finally, finally getting back into the normal run of things.  I actually got all of my work done on time this weekend and everything is back to its organized way haha; however, saying that, I did have a rough day yesterday.  I had to work matinee and a) I clocked in but apparently it didn't go through and b) I didn't run an order right, plus I was just delirious.  Anyway, the rest of yesterday and all of Saturday was great.  Oh, and I am sure you noticed I got glasses haha!  I am so excited, mostly because I can actually see now, but my frames are also perfect.  I took the chance to take some pictures with the family and the new frames on Saturday when we went on a picnic to the park!


The park was so beautiful, especially since everything was so clear haha!  I was also channeling my inner Kelly and the City...  the polka dots and Kate Spade satchel totally remind me of something she would wear!

How was your weekend?  Anything interesting happen?

Grad Party Gifts

Well, it is about that time of year that grad parties begin to start up, which means presents galore!  Whenever I shop for grad parties I try to find something that a) really speaks to my relationship with that person, b) is something useful/fun, and c) is affordable-- trust me it can get pretty dang expensive to get lots of stuff for every party you are invited too.  Since I tend to go to a lot of grad parties, especially now that I am a junior, I thought I would create a collage of some general gift ideas.  All of them are pretty affordable and would be useful for anyone going off to college!

The stores I gravitate towards are Target, Lilly Puliter--such fun gifts, and Anthropologie.  All of them have a great selection of fun and useful items that anyone is bound to love!

What are your favorite grad gifts?  Any special stores you shop at?

P.S. I got my glasses yesterday and I can't believe how clear everything is!  I will definitely be taking some pictures today after ACT round two!

Five on Friday

Well this has been another hectic week!  I feel like the week following a break from school is always so rough.  I can never seem to get back into the school mode after a nice long break, especially because it was so well needed; however I think things will start to settle down after this week and I will be back into a more organized way of going about everything haha.  Here are a few things I found throughout the week!


1. Lilly Pulitzer

2. This media kit tutorial from Living in Color Print.

3. Another pair of cute wedges.

4. I really want one of these for prom.

5. Preppy Printshop New Arrivals!

What have you been loving this week?

P.S. I totally forgot to mention this a couple of posts ago, but I have to get glasses!  I just picked out the frames and they should be here soon.  I will make sure to take some pictures, and fun selfies, in them when they arrive!

Revlon Parfumerie

I recently made a run to Target and amongst a few other items I picked up the new Revlon nail polish, Revlon Parfumerie.  I must say I was pretty skeptical as to whether it would work or not, but the scent it releases after drying is amazing!  I bought the scent China Flower and it is great.  It smells so sweet for a couple hours after drying and the color is fantastic.  Another great thing is how long the polish stays on--usually it is an issue for me, but I kept mine on for a couple of days without reapplying.  Here are a few colors I really want to try...
