Friday Happiness...Memorial Day Weekend Edition

taken from here

I was so happy to have the long weekend, but so sad to see it end today when I had to head back to work. My weekend went from no plans to lots going on in a matter of hours on Thursday morning. I headed down to Long Beach Island, ate tons of summery foods at bbqs and hung out with friends. Hope you all enjoyed the holiday and soaked up some sun! Happy summer!!

I'm a JCrew Kinda Girl

Ok, so I am totally obsessed with everything J. Crew. From the styling in their catalogs to the layout of the store...oh yea and their clothes are pretty amazing too. I feel like I can never go wrong in there. I recently purchased these black cropped pants and think I need to have them in every color. I think I need all of these outfits too....cha-ching, cha-ching. cha-ching- ready to swipe some plastic.

Stripe Right

Espadrilles always seem to be the perfect shoe for summer. They are easy, comfy, and usually go with just about any summer outfit. I've gone through my fair share of super stacked espadrilles, but this season I am totally obsessing over flat striped ones. Everyone from Tory Burch to Target is carrying this awesome summer trend and I am dying to get my hands on a pair...decisions, decisions. Have any favorites?

Yellow: REPORT $35
Grey: TOMS $54
Red: ASOS $19
Multi: DOLCE VITA $120
Black: KATE SPADE $99

Sarah Tucker Travel Photography

Sarah Tucker, author of the adorable and whimsical blog Fairy Tales Are True, has an Etsy shop that I just stumbled upon and I am so happy about it. She travels all over the world with her baseball player of a husband (umm hello fairytale!), and snaps beautiful pictures of the places she's been. I am a serious sucker for flowers, beaches and boats, and Sarah's got that on lock down. I am in love with a few of her pieces and might need to buy some to hang in my bedroom. Sarah, your shots are gorge..I'm in love!

Friday Happiness

taken from here
TGIF! I thought this week would never end. Between the endless rain, craziness at work, and lack of sleep, I am so ready to chill this weekend. How was everyone's week? Any plans for the weekend? My agenda includes getting a much needed pedicure, seeing some family, eating fondue and seeing the movie Bridesmaids. Nothing crazy, just chill and relaxing...exactly what I need. How many more weeks until my vacation??
Have a great weekend xx

Happiness for the week...

-bf knows the way to my heart-

-can't wait to see this movie over the weekend-

Shades of Grey

By no means would I consider myself a good photographer. In fact, I am pretty bad at it, even though I like to think otherwise. I got lucky a few years ago though when snapping some pics up in Rhode Island while I was at school. Lucky for me, I went to school at the beach and had some great scenery to work with. Since I have been out of school for a whole year now (wow, crazy how time flies, how life changes, and how different you can change in a year), I am getting a little nostalgic and wanted to share with you one of my favorite places on Earth...Narragansett Beach. I hope you enjoy...this place is my second home, always and forever <3

Light and Breezy

Rain is in the forecast for the ENTIRE week and I am feeling slightly depressed because of it. Last week's sunshine was a little bit of a tease, and now all I want is sunshine and warmth all day, every day. This collection, Lovely Days, by Stone Cold Fox is the epitome of that. I am obsessing over the white crochet details, and the breezy fabrics. Here are my favorite pieces. I'll take one of each, please and thank you.

Suzanne Rogers is the Queen of Girlie

Fashion icon, Suzanne Rogers, pretty much has it all. She's cute, feminine, lives in a gorgeous house in Toronto, oh and did I mention a closet full of UH-MAZING pieces that any girl would kill for. McQueen, YSL, Chanel, the list goes on, and on, and well...on.  Take a peak inside her heaven..I'm obessed.

umm shoe heaven

those boots, that bag...i die

a little much for my taste, but how exquisite

fear no feather

because one pink chanel just isn't enough

how clever...

such a cool shot

this one might be my favorite
