I am in love with these flats.  Every time I see this image on it makes me want to order a pair in every color.

Have you ever worn Sam Edelman flats? Do you recommend them?

Navy + Hunter Green

I am so excited for some Autumn weather (if you can't tell... I have said this a few times recently!).  Fall clothes are just so fun, don't you think?  Sweaters, jeans, cardigans, scarves and corduroy... OH MY!

I love colored jeans.  When I saw these hunter green jeans from J.Crew I fell in love.  They are perfect for Fall!  I decided to pair them with a few of my favorite classic navy tops.

The Girls Apparel

I am not much of a workout girl, but I do try to go to the gym as much as possible for at least thirty minutes.  When I have downtime I try to motivate myself to watch TV in the gym, not on the couch.  When you just can't seem to motivate yourself to get moving, maybe this inspirational quote will help.

I was recently introduced to an awesome line of fitness apparel for women, The Girls Apparel.  The line is flattering, fun and will make working out that much better.  This fabulous line of fitness-wear has been seen on celebrities all over Southern California and you can find the perfect styles to match your body type.  After all, who wants to go to the gym in clothes they feel uncomfortable in?

Here are a few of the great workout pants available.

Do you workout?  If so, have you worn The Girls Apparel before?

wear red this fall

It's officially Fall and we've been having a little bit cooler weather.  The mornings have been fabulous the past couple of days and I'm hoping this pattern continues for quite some time.  I love it!  A great color to wear during the Fall and Winter is red.  It's so bright and fun and is great around the Holiday Season.  

Here are some fun red Fall outfits! 

Do you like to wear red during the Fall?

weekend recap

A few photos from this weekend.

How was your weekend?


sulu tunics

I recently received an e-mail introducing me to Sulu Tunics.  I love the tunic look, however I haven't really managed to master the look personally.  But, I think tunics are great for transitioning from summer to fall.  Since Saturday was the first official day of Fall, it is important to make sure your daily outfits aren't too summery (even though it may still be warm outside).

Below the tunics are paired with white jeans.  But, to make them a bit more appropriate for Fall, I recommend pairing them with dark skinny jeans or leggings.  These tunics are a perfect way to dress up your leggings or jeans for work, class or a night out with friends. 

How do you wear tunics?  Have you seen or worn Sulu Tunics?

Happy Fall everyone! I am so excited that today is the first official day of Fall, my favorite season of the year.  My mom and Godmother are in town this weekend and we will be tailgating and watching the Gators beat the Kentucky Wildcats today.  Hope you all have fun Fall plans today.

Drink a Pumpkin Spice Latte and have a great Saturday.

graphic sweaters

I cannot wait for cooler weather so I can wear sweaters.  Fall and winter clothes are my all time favorite.  They are so fun!  I am currently loving the graphic sweater trend I've been seeing around.

Do you like the graphic sweater trend?

Friday's Fancies : Fall Lust List

Today I am linking up with long distance loving for another fun installment of Friday's Fancies.  This week is all about what we're lusting for this fall.  Fall is my favorite time of year and my favorite styles. I only wish the fall weather would hurry up and make it's way to North Florida.

What are you lusting for this fall? 


Tuesday, September 11, 2012


Today we pause to remember one of the worst days in U.S. history.  A day I know I will never forget.  We can each remember where we were and what we were doing on that day in 2001.  The images from the live newscasts still play in my mind as if it were only a few months ago.

The world has changed a lot in the past 11 years.  But, let us never forget the impact of that day and those who gave their lives on that tragic September morning. 



Pinterest: Living Rooms

I love looking at beautifully decorated rooms on Pinterest.  It is one of my favorite things to do online.  Even though I don't have a house of my own to decorate yet, I love getting ideas and pinning my favorites! 

I love the color combo in this room and the ottoman! 

iKat... one of my favorite trends in interior design and fashion! 

I love the colors and patterns in this room.  Oh, and notice the picture of the elephant on the wall... fabulous! The white chair is a little modern for my taste, but this room is just so fun, don't you think? 


What do you enjoy pinning?

Fall Riding Boots

One of my favorite things about fall is getting to wear boots.  Skinny jeans tucked into boots.  Tights and skirts with boots.  Pretty much any outfit is better with a pair of boots.

How do you wear boots in the fall?

I love finding great inspirational quotes on Pinterest, don't you?  They can cheer me up in an instant!  I have my first exam of the semester next Thursday, so today is my first official library day of the semester... I hope I can stay focused! 

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Fall Essentials from Vineyard Vines

I love Vineyard Vines.  It is by far one of my favorite preppy brands.  I especially love their jackets.  They are just perfect for casual winter or fall days.

What are your favorite Vineyard Vines fall items?

Don't you just love this quote?  Anne Frank had such a hard life, yet she was able to look past all that she went through and see good things in life.  We should all think about this quote the next time we are having a hard time and remember it will get better.

I hope everyone is having a great week and has plans for a fabulous weekend.

Back to School : tips for getting into the swing of things

It is now the second full week of classes and I am starting to feel like I am getting into my routine, although Labor Day did throw me off a little.  I love setting a routine and sticking to it as much as possible.  I think routines make life so much easier and really help you to stay on top of things, don't you agree?  I try to wake up early, even on days when I don't have class, so that I can have plenty of time to work on homework, blogging and any other work I have during the day.  This allows me to attend club meetings, watch television and hang out with friends at night.

1. Organize your notebooks | I like to start each semester with freshly organized notebooks and binders.  I tend to wait until I get to class to decide how to best organize my materials for the semester.  If the class is very note heavy I tend to bring my laptop to take notes, so I organize with three-ring binders.  If the class is math related or discussion based I tend to use spiral notebooks to take notes, since there isn't as much writing.

2. Write all important dates in your planner | I love writing in a fresh new planner at the beginning of the year.  I know, I'm a nerd.  But, I think writing in my planner is so much fun!  It's even better this year, since Lilly Pulitzer has come out with fun academic stickers.

3.  Print all syllabi & important papers from each class | It is crucial to make sure you organize and print all the necessary papers for the semester if your professors don't hand them out in class.  This really helps you to understand what your responsibilities are for the semester. 

4.  Highlight important things to remember | Highlight, highlight, highlight!  I always start each semester by going through my syllabi and highlighting all important dates (i.e. exams, papers, projects) and other information to remember (i.e. office hours, attendance policies, etc.).

5. Organize your space | I think it is crucial to start each semester with a freshly cleaned and organized room.  If you're moving into a new apartment or dorm this is simple, just make sure you're totally unpacked by the first day of classes.  Being organized in time for your first class will reduce your stress level and make waking up each morning for class much easier.  If I have an early class I try to organize all my papers and materials the night before so I won't forget anything when rushing around in the morning.

How do you start off each semester?
