Spring Fling: Part 3

For my third Spring Fling (our annual spring music festival to celebrate the end of classes) I'm sticking with my tradition of rompers. But this year I went even more 90's and bought these overalls from Forever 21.

I think all the Ally McBeal I have recently been watching is really starting to mess with my head!

Ask and Ye Shall Receive: Eclectic Prom Dresses

I wish I still had prom dress shopping to look forward to every April. Thankfully I've got a cousin still in highschool who asked for a little help and I was happy to oblige!

Rachel Roy Circle Back Dress, $119

I think all of these dresses are perfect for prom but can also be worn for a graduation party!

While browsing on ASOS looking for spring dresses I came across a great brand, Nishe. I adore their swallow print dress and top.

I've been wearing a lot of black and grey this winter, I'm ready to get back to ethereal whites and pinks!

Gadget Cases

I recently acquired an Ipad and an Iphone. I love both because they make my life easier and they're fun to play with. Due to my accident prone-ness cases to protect my beloved gadgets are an absolute necessity.

In London over spring break my dad took us to Hornets, a vintage clothing store that specializes in English staples like tweed and hunting jackets. We had fun looking for ties for my dad and I found the perfect case for my Ipad, a vintage traveling case from the 60s.

My Iphone case involved a less exciting search process (via google rather than a trip around London) but I love it just as much, if not more because it's customized.

I had my case made by uncommon. It's an incredibly easy process, just pick out an image you like and upload it to their site, choose which case you want it printed on and voila, a brand new customized iphone case.

I spent a few days trolling the internet for images before I landed on the perfect idea. I have tons of artists saved in my etsy favorites but I never get around to buying prints and hanging them on my wall. I looked through a couple of my saved sellers and one image popped out at me immediately. I emailed the seller asking if I could buy the rights to her image for use on a phone case. She happily agreed and yesterday my brand new case arrived.

The image I chose is The Classics by the wonderful Kristina Hultkrantz of emmakisstina. I'm thrilled with the case and highly recommend uncommon to anyone looking for a customizable iphone case!

Brooklyn Birthday Party

R and I are heading to the city to see some recently graduated friends and celebrate a birthday.

I'm the worst packer ever (I always forget socks) and cannot for the life of me pack light. I've had many an airport meltdown over bag weight limits. I really don't want to lug a heavy bag around all day so I packed two options, a pair of tights and some make-up and left it at that. I'm sure I'm forgetting something important...

everything from topshop

Off we go!

Imports from Abroad

For spring break I went to Puerto Morelos, Mexico, Paris, and London with friends and family. Leah and I had three glorious days in Paris filled with macaroons (so. many. macaroons.) and shopping.

My favorite purchases were definitely shoes. Two from Paris, one pair from London.
