Things I Cannot Stop Wearing this Summer

Jack Rogers Navajor Mid Wedges in Platinum

Weddings, work, weekends... you name it, I've worn these to it.

Lilly Pulitzer Skirt in Hotty Pink Ten Speed Print

I can't find a picture of this on the internet, but this is the print and I'm wearing it to death this summer.

Rachel Leigh Audrey Bangle

This is the only bracelet I've occasionally replaced my sentimental Tiffany Silver Bead bracelet (the first gift my fiance gave me) with.

JPK Paris Bucket Bag in Pink

After much coveting, I picked this up at a Rue La La sale. I love how bright it is (although I can never find anything in it which drives me craaaazy!).

Kendra Scott Pink Jade Earrings

I love these earrings! I guess by now you can guess that my favorite color is pink!

What have you been wearing non-stop this summer?

Pink & Green Summer Drinks

What is a better color combination for summer than pink and green? Pink lemonade and limeade are my favorite Lilly-fied beverages to drink to cool down on these hot summer day!

Pink Lemonade

1. Bring 1 cup of water with 1 cup of granulated sugar to a boil in a pan over medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved and refrigerate for an hour.

2. Add 2 1/2 cups lemon juice, 1 1/2 cups superfine sugar, cranberry juice, and 1 1/4 quarts of water to your prettiest pitcher. Stir until dissolved and refrigerate until ready to serve.

3. Add ice cubes and garnish with lemon slices.


1. Bring the grated zest of 1 lime, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of water to a boil. Remove from heat once sugar is completely dissolved.

2. Strain out the lime zest from the sugar-water mixture. Add 1 cup lime juice and 2 cups of water. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

3. Serve with ice and garnished with lime slices or fresh mint sprigs.

What do you like better - pink lemonade or limeade?

Shoshanna Dresses = LOVE

I love Shoshanna dresses and these summer ones definitely do not disappoint. I want one of each!

I love the simple cut of this dress and the gold color. I once had a Shoshanna one-shoulder dress in this color and it was so pretty!

Pink and white is one of my favorite summer color combos. Oh hell, it's one of my favorite any season color combos.
I'm alas too short to really pull off the maxi dress, but if I could, I'd snap up this gorgeous white one with gold accents.

I love the splash of color at the top!

Green and white is a pretty good color combo too...

I've been in love with this shade of purple since I saw it on a waitress's nails last weekend. I neeeed this dress!

All pictures are from Shopbop!

Do you have a favorite Shoshanna dress??

UPDATE: Now this is what I call serendipity! There is a Shoshanna sale starting at noon EST on Gilt. Click here if you need an invite!

My Rachel Leigh Purchase!

I finally bought a Rachel Leigh Audrey bracelet! I've been wanting one for sooo long and since I alway see them on various sale websites, I wanted to get one on sale. Otherwise, I knew the day after I bought one, I'd see them on sale. The problem was I kept missing the sales! Until now - I bought this pink one on The Aisle. The best part is they are still available - and in blue and white too. Click here to go to The Aisle!

Have a wonderful weekend!

A Very Lilly Wedding

I would LOVE to have a Lilly Pulitzer-themed wedding. My fiance? Not so much. So I will now live vicariously through this gorgeous Lilly Fresh Squeezed wedding photo shoot featuring the Lilly Wedding Collection that I saw on The Wedding Chicks.

How much do you love these pictures?? And the Lilly wedding dresses are adorable. Do you ever feel like you need to have 10 different weddings just to use all the different ideas/themes/colors/dresses, etc that you love?! I sure do!! Be sure to check out the entire post and all the wonderful photos here.

Lilly Shopping Trip

I apologize for being a terrible blogger. I've been wanting to post on the royal wedding (which I LOVED) and some of my own wedding updates, but now I feel like I'm a little too tardy for the party!

One thing that it's never too late to post on is shopping! I've been trying really hard not to do too much shopping, but somehow I end up doing it anyways. Last weekend, I convinced my fiance to drive me to E. A. Davis in Wellesley. This store is fabulous and has more Lilly than the actual Lilly store (In the Pink) in Boston. Plus the women who work there are amazing. They also sell Jack Rogers, Vineyard Vines, etc.

I picked up 2 great Lilly items!

The Patterson dress is cute, summery, and very flattering. The top white part is stretchy and has a built-in bra with the tiniest bit of padding. I usually don't like tops with a built-in bra, but I'll happily make an exception for this one. I'm going to Florida in a few weeks and I can't wait to wear this. Next time you're in a Lilly store, try this dress on!

I also picked up this adorable beach tote. It's HUGE and the inside is insulated so it is perfect for bringing cold drinks and a snack to the beach. And it comes with a super cute Lilly bottle/wine opener.
Have a wonderful weekend!

The Royal Wedding is Almost Here!!

I'm so excited for Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding tomorrow!

I took the day off from work to watch it... everyone in my office thinks that I'm crazy, but I don't care. I just hope I can wake up so early to watch it! I hope I get some ideas for my wedding later this year! My mom is also coming over and we will have a royal tea party.

I love some of the wedding souveniers that I've seen, like this Union Jack edition of Pommery Pop champange.
I am also dying to try the Royal Wedding Tea from Harney & Sons.

And I think I want to buy this Wedding Tea Cup and Saucer from Royal Worcester.What are you doing to celebrate the wedding of the century?

Easter Recap

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend! Mine was busy, but fun. I helped my mom cook and clean and she tends to get crazy (and I mean CRAZY) before she has guests over... is anyone else's mother like this??

Some tid bits from the day:

I wore one of my favorite Lilly dresses!
I made two desserts to bring to my parent's house. First was Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls. These were a big hit (especially with my fiance!) and I used a recipe I found on Sweets & Treats!

(I borrowed the picture from Sweets & Treats.)

I also made the Pineapple Bliss Cupcakes recipe I found on Gina's Skinny Recipes. These were so so easy to make and so so delicious to eat.
(I borrowed the picture from Gina's site.)

What did you have for dessert this weekend??
Have a great week!

Yes, it's Another Shopping Post

OK, I'm really going to stop shopping now.

My latest weakness? The Lilly sale on Rue La La. I think that only buying this Del Mar dress was a sign of restraint!

I also picked up a few things at Ann Taylor LOFT last weekend. If you haven't been there lately, I think you need to. SO many cute things for spring. I will definitely be going back... next week when my fiance is away for business and can't find my shopping bags.

I got these two tops, plus a new pair of jeans.

What have you been shopping for lately?

Weddings: Kate Spade Style!

I should save this post for a Wedding Wednesday, but I am so excited about the Kate Spade Wedding Bells collection that I just had to post now. Kate Spade has been one of my very favorite designer for a long time, but she has really stepped it up in the past couple of years. The wedding items are fun and unique and just absolutely perfect for that special day.

I love the pearl bauble necklace, but don't think it would work with my gown... but this would look amazing other dresses! I am contemplating getting this to wear to my rehearsal dinner.

It's hard to see in the picture, but the necklace below says "I do." Sigh. I love this, but couldn't decide when I would wear it. Maybe for brunch with my girlfriends before we start getting ready for the wedding? When would you wear it? I am in love with the idea of wearing blue shoes for my wedding. I've been deciding between the Kate Spade Muse heels below, Manolos, and Christian Louboutins. Decisions, decisions... My wedding colors are pink and navy. Wouldn't this ring work with that perfectly?!
This necklace is my favorite and is the one that I cannot wait to wear - "Mrs." I'm definitely getting this to wear on my honeymoon!!!!

Many thanks to Kate Spade for introducing this collection before my wedding rather than after - I would have been sooo sad!

Click here to view the whole collection. What do you like??

Wish List: Bethenny Frankel's Necklace

I was a huge fan of Bethenny Frankel when she was on Real Housewives of NYC and Bethenny Getting Married. So naturally I park myself on the couch on Monday nights to watch Bethenny Ever After! As I've been watching, I've become more and more obsessed with a necklace she wears during one of the "interview" clips.

I absolutely LOVE this necklace. It is perfect and sparkly without being over the top. Plus I can't get over how amazing it looks with the midnight blue silk top she's wearing.

So I scoured the internet, but had trouble finding who made the necklace. I finally found it today on It's called the Diamonds Cascade Necklace by Park Lane Jewelry (which seems to be similar to Stella and Dot in the regard that you need to buy it from a rep): I'd love to get it... but it's over $400 and I can't justify spending that on fake diamonds. I've been trying to find something similar, but so far no luck. Any ideas???
