The Lasts of Summer

I head back down to school on Thursday and I really wanted to make the best of my last weekend here.  I was totally pleased with the results.  I was both productive yet not stressed and did a lot of my favorite things all the while staying away from my phone and computer.  Dinner and dessert on the water and one of my friends houses on Nassau Point on Friday Night, took the boat around Shelter Island on Saturday just my father and I, concert at Jones Beach with my sister on Saturday night*, and lazy Sunday morning.  The weekend felt just long enough.

* For anyone who went to the Ke$ha and LMFAO concert on Saturday Night, you were lucky.  It was amazingly fun and essentially one GIANT dance party.  I was shufflin' in the aisles. We had great seats (10 rows away from the stage) and it was the perfect ending to the summer.

This is officially my last weekend home before I head back down to school. I am not very happy about it, seeing as school = stressed out me. Despite the workload that is awaiting me when I get to school (can you say biochemistry?) I have one last amazing weekend here before then.  This weekend will be filled with boat rides, spending time with family, dressing in crazy outfits to go see Ke$ha (so excited you have no idea), and finishing off my to do list seen here.

Have a great weekend!

Bright Bags

A bright bag can always be used in the fall (I sometimes break every fashion law there is and use it in the winter as well). Just keep the rest of the outfit light and neutral and the bag can be the center of attention.

A Few Things


As the summer draws to a close, I am forced to scramble around madly trying to finish everything (as evidenced by my day yesterday which involved me driving home 2 hours at midnight the day before in order to get a physical at 9 AM and then drive 2 hours out to work.) Needless to say, I havent had as much time for blogging as I would like.  HOWEVER. these are a few recent photos that I have taken. enjoy.

Rainy Days

I woke up to a cold rainy day, and I was quite annoyed by it to be quite honest.  Summer to me is about hot beautifully sunny days and this was just not going to cut it.  So I threw on waterproof shoes got a hot latte (so disappointing) and walked out into the what can only be described as icky weather. 
Rainy days call for cute basics but since I cannot stand getting wet I require quite a few precautionary pieces.  Number one, my hunters.  I could not live without these.  Living on a college campus with a lot of puddles, these get the job done in style.  Plus pick up some of the cute fleece inserts and you have your winter boot! The bubble umbrella serves the same purpose, except it protects your hair from that unattractive frizzy thing it does when it gets rained on.  Lastly, I am obsessed with the Ikat print.  I have purchased 2 bathing suits, a dress seen here and a scarf all with the print this summer.  It gives the perfect amount of pop that an outfit needs without being over the top. 

Bottom Line: make sure your rainy day essentials keep you dry but still keep your style with a few pops of color!

Fall in Love

Although I am not looking forward to the influx of school work that fall brings, I do love bringing my favorite sweaters out of storage, pumpkin picking, and the brisk weather on the weekends. I am a huge fan of earth tones and colors that mimic the changing of the seasons. Here are some pieces that are inspiring me this season.
