Just Finished Reading...

It was absolutely captivating. I felt like I ran along side the characters throughout the story and was so sad when I closed my window to their world on the last page. It is absolutely one of the best works of fiction I have read in a long time. It has received two thumbs up from me!

Loving Lilly

Growing up a Florida girl I do believe it is impossible for me not to love Lilly Pulitzer. I know my friend Preppy Panache agrees with that wholeheartedly. I was so thrilled to see Lilly's new spring line in all its preppy, color popping glory. I would love to own nearly every dress that befell my little blue eyes, not to mention the sandals, coverups, and suits that a trip to the beach just cannot do without. Here are a few of my faves.

TDF with a pair of white skinny jeans, these sandals, pearl earrings, and dinner on the beach. 

I love empire waist dresses. Make it a mini and cut it from fabric in a shade of blue and we have a MUST in my book. I think Lilly and I have fashion psychosis because I can't imagine wearing it with any other shoe and handbag than the ones she recommends.

Adelson Shift Gold Lace
At first I thought I would opt for this dress in the white version but the more I look at it in pink salmon the more I realize I just cannot pass it by. How perfect would this be for Easter? Just throw on some gold ballet flats--or heels if you are so inclined--and you will give the Easter Brunch at the country club a run for their money.

Okay, I need this coverup and I am not going to the beach again until I have it. I realize this is an extreme statement but the entire time I am listening to the waves crash all I will be able to think about is how chic I would look wearing it as I shuffle across the sand carrying my equally chic straw bag. I don't think I can handle that type of "what if" situation. 

I mean, duh. Love a bandeau and love the pink and green (Limeade Coral Me Crazy) print. Oh summer, how I love you. Please come to play soon.

For those of you who are unaware, this is the greatest concept since above-the-knee hemlines. Think Bag Borrow or Steal but for clothes. Over the past year I have bought one too many cocktail dresses that have all been worn a grand total of one time. I have a thing about overwearing dresses. This Web site was the answer to my dreams. For my next event I am definitely going to log on and rent. The best part is they allow you to choose two dress sizes to have sent at no additional charge, just in case. I am definitely thinking the Lela Rose number is a great birthday option for moi.

Oh My Gracious

... is what I said when I first saw this necklace. J.Crew has done it again. I die. Literally, call the medics.
