Obsessed: Kate Spade Bangles

Lately I've become obsessed with Kate Spade bangles, I mean I've always loved them.. but recently they have been over-the-top adorbs! The perfect match to any Lilly or J.Crew outfit and fun to stack together for a bolder look! And my favorite part are the cute and inspirational sayings inside!

For my birthday my wonderful cousin surprised me with this Kate Spade bangle beauty for an early birthday present:

Love, love, LOVE!! I've been wearing it non-stop since she gave it to me! 

Today at work:

And I found this navy and confetti one at the rack! It's the perfect bit of fun for any boring outfit! I was running errands and grilling here:

Do you have a favorite fun accessory? Are you loving the Kate Spade bangles too??!!

Alumni Dinner OOTN

Happy Friday!! I seriously can.not.wait for this weekend! It seems that every weekend has been jam packed with events and things to do, so I can't wait to just relax! Although we might go up to the houseboat on  Lake Shasta- but rest assured I will be relaxing with a Corona in hand!

Last night I went out to dinner with my sorority's alumni group. I just love how I can meet sisters from other chapters and we all have soo much in common! And of course one of my favorite things ever is patio dinning with good food and great conversation. I wore this outfit:

Lilly dress, Jcrew sweater, belt and wedges.

I'm loving the navy and green combo! but I plan on wearing a pink sweater next time.. This color combo has been a recent go-to favorite (see here)

Did anyone else see the documentary on J.Crew? I would have to say I am even more obsessed with them now (is that even possible?)! It was really good, you should def check it out! Here's a preview, and the show is called  "J.Crew and the Man Who Dressed America" on CNBC.

Speaking of J.Crew, recently my asthma has been OOC so I picked up this cute little pouch there to store my inhaler..
It looks like Tory Burch but without the price tag.. and at least I get some consolation for all my suffering! :)

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!! XOXO

90th Birthday Bash

Hi my lovely readers!! If you remember from this post, this past weekend I took a quick trip down to the OC for CWF's Grandma's 90th birthday party! and we had a fabulous time!! The luncheon was right on the water and had a gorgeous view! It was also really nice meeting some of CWF's extended family for the first time! (even after 7 years of dating!)

I wore a new and amazing dress from J.crew (similar one here), old J.crew wedges, jewelry and belt.

The birthday girl! I hope I look that fabulous at 90!

And because I love my stripe dress so much, I am wearing it on Round 2, today to work!

  with a Jcrew cardi, bubble necklace, and Lilly shoes!

Of course I'm linking up with the pleated poppy for WIWW!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!! XOXO

Chambray Love

Happy Friday Ladies!! I love me some Friday, and especially this week because I'm flying down to the OC for CWF's grandma's 90th birthday party this weekend! So excited!

You know what else I love? Chambray! Everyone should have one nice chambray shirt in their wardrobe, it's just so versatile! This outfit I put together is just perfect for weekend errands, or in my case hanging near by the beach (only a few more hours!)

J.crew Chambray, Lilly Shorts, Tory Sandals

I'm linking up with Long Distance Loving for this week's Friday Fancies!

Garden Tour

This past weekend to celebrate Mother's Day I went on a fabulous garden tour with CWF's mom. The tour took place in the East Bay area where CWF and I grew up. Most of the homes had gorgeous views of the area and had extras like tennis courts, several pools, cars on display and much more. It was such a nice and relaxing way to spend the day!

Outfit details: Lilly dress (similar), chanel sunnies, Lilly Sandals

CWF's mom and I

Pretty walkways

One of the houses on the tour was owned by a little old man, who liked me so I got to sit in one of his Ferraris! 

Pretty view of the golf course

I'm trying to convince CWF's parents to be apart of the tour next year, their home and garden is just as fab!

I hope you all are having a great week so far! XOXO

Growing Up

Last night I attended my sorority’s hall of commitment ceremony for all the seniors graduating and going alum. It was so nice to see all the girls all grown up! I first met these girls my senior year/their freshman year during recruitment and they are some of my favorite! 

It really makes me wonder though, where has the time gone? It seems as I was just there yesterday, about to graduate and make my way into the real world. Now here I am, in the real world and loving it, but those days seem like just yesterday, when in reality it’s been years. I feel like so much has changed in these last few years since college, but in some way things are still the same. I guess it’s good  to reminisce sometimes just to see how far you've come!

Cheers to growing up!

What I Wore Wednesday

I had an important meeting at work today, so I thought I would get a little fanceee!

Everything I'm wearing is actually old.. but skirt is f21 (worn here), button down is j.crew factory, shoes are Michael Kors and necklace is a combo of pearls and j.crew crystal

 being silly!

And linking up with the pleated poppy for WIWW!

Hope everyone is beating this heat wave and staying cool! XOXO

Derby Darling

Happy Tuesday Ladies! I am finally recovered from a fabulous weekend! On Saturday (the day of the Kentucky Derby!) a bunch of us ladies from the Junior League rented a limo and went wine tasting! To say it was a blast is a complete understatement!

At our first winery

I'm wearing a Lilly Dress and a hat from Target! Tory Burch clutch and Steve Madden wedges. Don't mind my terrible squinty eyes!

It was so pretty there! 

 In the tasting room after our picnic lunch

Sadly the horse I betted on didn't win- it was the one in pink and green- I guess that happens when you only choose the horse for looks!

I hope everyone else had a great weekend too! Here's to hoping CWF will take me to the Derby next year!

My J.Crew Bubble Necklace Look-Alike

A few weeks ago I ordered the now infamous j.crew bubble necklace look-alike from Ebay here. Everyday since I would check my mailbox in anticipation for its arrival, and finally yesterday it came! And it is glorious! Seriously ladies its the most amazing $14.50 necklace ever!

I actually owned the j.crew version in black last year, but returned it shortly after purchase because of the price(too high-$150) and quality(too low- the gold was very bright and cheap looking). But this one seems to be almost better quality than the j.crew version! Don't you just love a great deal on something amazing?!

Wearing it to work today:
shirt: F21, skirt: j.crew, flats: tory burch, watch: michael kors

Linking up with the pleated poppy for What I Wore Wednesday!

And since I pick my outfits out the night before- here is how I planned to wear it to work today..

Necklace close-ups and another possible outfit combo on the left.

And a preview of how I plan to wear it to Derby themed wine tasting this Saturday: 

Umm can you tell I'm obsessed?! I've already gotten a bunch of compliments on it too! So you should all get one too, and let me know if you do! XOXO
