Lilly Pulitzer Nation

Now that things are simmering down, I can get back to blogging :D

I thought a perfect post, would be my brand love for Lilly. I mean seriously though, who doesn't love Lilly? Especially now, when the only thing clouding up my mind is Spring. Oh how I want you Spring.
I agree with the College Prepster, when she said that she half expected when waking up on March 1 that it would be Spring. But unfortunately, the East Coast is still like an ice cube.

Basically the closest thing I have to Spring at the moment is me sitting in front of my computer for hours browsing the new Lilly collections.

Just looking at all the bright patterns, and beautiful designs, makes me happy. It puts a little brightness back in my dreary rainy day.

Here are the top items on my wishlist :)

My goal is to start updating my summer/spring wardrobe, and of course Lilly will be the base of all my accessories, clothing, etc etc.

Which Lilly piece is your favorite?

Eat Cake For Breakfast

"Eat Cake For Breakfast"

(double click on the image and you can download it as a wallpaper!)

     Ok, so you might be reading the title and think to yourself, what in the world is she talking about?

Well, I was shopping around on the Kate Spade website and I saw an adorable tote bag that read "Eat cake for breakfast". I just kind of skimmed it over, thought it was cute, no big deal. But then I gave it more thought. I pretty much kept on repeating it over and over in my head. For some reason it really stuck with me.

I guess it kind of goes along with a carpe diem sort of mind set.  I've really been trying lately, to live more in the moment and not worry about what's going to happen, and especially what already happened. I seem to have the sort of issue where I 'cry over spilt milk', it's either that or I'm worrying about the future and all the 'what ifs.' 

But this quote, in it's own quirky way, is basically saying don't worry about anything for a while. Have fun. Do something crazy and spontaneous. Live a little. Enjoy life in the moment. Be unpredictable for once. Be unexpected. Take a day off. Do something you normally would never do. Take a deep breath and take everything in. Enjoy the little things. Eat cake for breakfast.

Here are some of the cute inspirational Kate Spade products:

Which ones your favorite? :)

So, I was on the hunt for some new boots that would be able to withstand this horrid weather we've been having... and it dawned on me. Duck boots, duh.

My main criteria was that they had to be 
1. Long Lasting
3.Go with almost anything
5.Water/snow/slush proof.

Duck or "bean" boots fits all of these needs and more. 

  • Our signature boots are still sewn here in Maine and have stood the test of time
  • Thinsulate™ Insulation olefin/polyester for extra warmth in the rubber part of the boot
  • Supportive steel shank and rubber chain-tread bottom provide comfort and traction
An avid outdoorsman, Leon Leonwood Bean wanted to create a comfortable, dry pair of boots for tromping through the backwoods of Maine. Today, our signature boots are still sewn right here in Maine, one pair at a time, from premium full-grain leather. A supportive steel shank and our original rubber chain-tread bottom give you unmatched comfort and performance. While many boots on the market might look similar to L.L.Bean Boots, they lack the attention to detail and the premium-quality materials that have allowed ours to stand the test of time. Thinsulate™ Insulation olefin/polyester in rubber bottom for extra warmth during cold snaps."
They come in a few different colors and heights, and you can even get fur lined ones!

For my purposes, I thought these were the best for me:

They are the 8" tan, original Maine Hunting Boot.

Here are pix from my Instagram on how I wore them!

You can buy them here! 

Stay tuned for my post on cute sock and tights pairings for boots!

What are your favorite pair of go-to boots? How do you wear them?

Love Lettering

Sorry for being kinda M.I.A the past few days, things have been pretty crazy!

But anywaysss, time to get back into the swing of things so today's post is going to be one of my favorites, and in the spirit of Valentines Day :) . I was flipping through the latest issue of Sweet Lemon Magazine, and I read an amazing article, that also happens to be the cover story(if you don't already subscribe to/ read Sweet Lemon you are missing out).

It was all about this company called "More Love Letters", basically each month you can send in love letter requests for a friend or family member, and then if they are chosen, anyone in the world can sign up to More Love Letters and write a beautiful love letter to these strangers, who need someone, anyone to have faith in them, and to see that they are not all alone.

This brilliant idea, was started by Hannah Brencher, who starting writing love letters to random people and would leave them all over New York City. And slowly but surely, More Love Letters has grown and grown to what it is today.

So stop on by their website, and participate! It's truly amazing how one letter can make such a difference in someone's life. You can even throw your own Love Lettering Valentine's Day party, and they'll send you all the things you need! I know what I'm doing next weekend!

Music to My Ears 1

    For a while there I kind of stopped listening to music, and reading, and watching tv, jst becasue I was so busy and I essentially fell of the face of the Earth for a week or two. But now that I am back up on my feet, and starting to readjust after midterms, i'm back in full swing.
    So, as I have been organizing and doing some last minute studying I had some favorite alternative(which is a fancy way of saying hipster) bands playing to help me get along:)
    Here are some of my favorites!
