the royal wedding.

This morning I woke up at 5:00 AM to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.  I never wake up this early for anything (I am not a morning person).  But, this is a historical day and I love, love, love the royal family!!!!  Kate Middleton's wedding dress was beyond beautiful.  My friend Meaghan has been studying abroad in London, England since January and was in the crowd in front of Buckingham Palace (so jealous).

The wedding has been on almost every channel all naturally I have been watching it all day!!!!! So fun!

Isn't Duchess Catherine beautiful!?

Did you wake up to watch the wedding?

The Royal Wedding is finally upon us and I for one have never been so excited to make up at 5:00 a.m.

Isn't this just perfect?

Who else will be watching the festivities in the wee hours?

I cannot believe I'll be in Venice, Italy during the Kentucky Derby!  Not that I'm complaining that I'll be in Italy, but I'm assuming they won't be broadcasting it there.  However, despite the fact that I'm missing one my favorite events of the year.  I must share Vineyard Vines AMAZING Derby Collection.  Could they make me love them any more?  Shep & Ian have captured my heart again!  I LOVE THEM!

Earth Day.

Today is Earth Day!

Take some time to think about the planet and how your daily habits are effecting it.

I calculated my estimated emissions and I should defiantly work on reducing my carbon footprint
and so should YOU!

2. Want to help save the planet, Adopt a Coral Reef, it's estimated that my 2050 70% of the worlds Coral Reefs will be prevent that!
3. Go see African Cats in theaters today.
4. Need motivation to help the planet and the animals we share it with read this.

Sales are Fabulous!

Girls often need a full length white dress for cotillion or sorority initiation.  This J.Crew Silk chiffon Sophia long dress is on sale from J.Crew's wedding collection and is beautiful.  It also comes in graphite and black, it's perfect for any formal event.
On Sale at
I am getting to that age where I need clothes to wear to work.  This semester I've been working in the administration offices at the UF Athletic Association and it has made me realize that I need to constantly be on the look out for business-attire.
On sale at for $148
The Allura shift dress in Super 120s is perfect for work (although it is flannel so it is out of season at the moment), but as a Florida girl I must not forget that I occasionally need winter clothing so that I am not caught-off-guard when cold weather comes my way.

On Sale at for $79.99
Felted Wool Mini for $29.99
J.Crew is my favorite store... if that isn't obvious haha!  It's always the best place to get a great deal... they always have a large sale selection of their website.

Finals are finished tomorrow!!!!

New Arrivals at J.Crew!

In a little over a week I will be on my way to Florence, Italy!

I am so excited, however...
The weather is not going to be as warm and sunny as it is here in Florida.  Don't get me's not like I'm going to the arctic, but I am a Florida girl and...  I am disappointed that I cannot wear shorts and Lilly dresses everyday that I am there.  But, it will be fun despite the slightly colder climate.

As always... I check the J.Crew website pretty regularly and receive e-mails from them daily.  There site is full of NEW ARRIVALS!!!!

Here are a few of my favorites!
