April Showers!

1. Kate Spade Umbrella | How fabulous is this Kate Spade umbrella? With this stylish accessory above your head you can't be too upset with Mother Nature.  Having a fun umbrella to cover my head on a stormy day almost makes me wish for rain.

2. Petit Bateau Raincoat | In Florida I am always in need of a light jacket to keep me warm and dry on a stormy afternoon.  You can never be quite sure when a quick Florida storm will pop out of nowhere so you must always be prepared!  This raincoat is a great go-to jacket to through in your purse as your running out the door to class or work.

3. Jack Rogers Georgia Jelly Sandal | During the summer Florida can be very warm, but you don't want to get caught in a summer shower wearing your nice white Jack's!  These Jack Rogers jelly sandals are stylish and perfect for a day with a questionable forecast. 

4. Joules Rain Boot | It is always important to have a good stylish pair of rain boots in your wardrobe.  Particularly if you have to walk a ways to class or work.  I speak from experience... walking across a college campus during a torrential downpour is not fun! 

5. Longchamp Medium Tote | I cannot say enough times how reliable Longchamp bags are.  Whether it's to tote your books to and from class or to carry all your must-have belongings from day-to-day, Longchamp bags are great for any occasion.  Plus they won't get ruined if you get caught in a storm.

6. Modcloth Ring Holder | How much fun is this ring holder from Modcloth?  It is the perfect thing to keep all your rings together in one safe place.

What is your go-to rainy day gear?

Fashionable Friends {The Quarter Life Closet}

Christina and I met at the University of Florida while studying abroad with our college in Florence, Italy.  We of course immediately found our mutual love for J.Crew and Anthro!  She is now in law school at Ole Miss in Oxford, MS.  A perfect fit for her if you ask me.  

Christina has started a fabulous blog entitled The Quarter Life Closet and even though she has only been blogging for a little while she's already a pro!  

I pulled together a few of my favorite looks from Christina's blog to share with y'all.  Enjoy!

Head on over to Christina's blog and follow her!

For a while I was on the hunt for a work bag.  A bag that could hold my laptop, planner and anything else I need and look sophisticated at the same time... it took a couple of months, but I finally stumbled across the perfect bag at T.J. Maxx and it's a Kate Spade! How perfect is that combo?  I got lucky!!!  

Well now that I am all set with the grown up "brief case," it's time to start thinking about the grown up hand bag.  Recently I have been carrying my medium black Longchamp Le Pliage tote everywhere.  It's the perfect go-to hand bag.  It holds just about everything I need and more and it looks good in the process, but it's starting to get warn out... so is it the right bag for transitioning from college student to post-grad professional?  

I think the Longchamp 'Le Pliage' Medium Should Tote is the perfect bag for just about everything.  It transitions perfectly from work to night to weekend and what could be better than that!

I love my black medium tote, but I've been dying to get another color, or maybe even a larger size!  

What do you think? What color and size should I get?

Pray for Boston!

Today I am keeping Boston, Mass. in my thoughts & prayers.  It's so sad to see yet another attack on innocent Americans.

Kayce Hughes

A few weeks ago while I was in Nashville, Tennessee, I stopped by a cute little store called Kayce Hughes.  I had seen some of Kayce's stuff online and was dying to check it out in person.  The Nashville store did not disappoint. Everything was adorable! 

I got this cute green number and wore it yesterday for Easter.

Check out Kayce Hughes website, Facebook, Twitter & Instagram!

Have you worn Kayce Hughes before?
