Hi y'all!! I recently was browsing through the Vineyard Vines website and I saw that they had jumped on the sorority print bandwagon! There are new VV tote bags as well as cosmetic bags with certain sororities featured on them.

Pi Beta Phi
Zeta Tau Alpha
Delta Delta Delta

For all of the sorority girls out there, what do you think? Are y'all going to be buying the new Vineyard Vines sorority line? Let me know!!
While I was in Memphis last weekend, my parents visited two of my favorite places, Kiawah and Charleston!! My mother had already been to the lovely Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store in Kiawah called Pink Boulevard (with me last year for our College of Charleston tour), so when she visited again with my father, they got a fantastic surprise!! There were three Jubilee-era pink and green shift dresses with huge beading on the front and ONE WAS IN MY SIZE. It was like $200 off!! Super sale!! Yayyy!!!
Isn't it prettttttyyy?
I will definitely be wearing this during Spring Break (more to come later)!!
Hi y'all!! I hope everyone had a great President's Day weekend. Memphis was so much fun and I'm going to post pictures as soon as I can!!
Here is the Lilly mannequin outfit of the week:
I loooove this dress. It's the Jonah dress in Shorely Blue Purring Jacquard from Lilly Pulitzer. It's so pretty but unfortunately I have yet to wear it...it's not weather-appropriate yet for the increasingly colder Connecticut!
The necklace is also from Lilly Pulitzer and I got it for Christmas. It goes perfectly with the dress!! I can't wait until it starts getting warmer so I can wear this outfit.
Not to start off on a sour note, but I absolutely hate flying. Airports, airplanes, the whole experience. I am afraid of heights, especially airplanes. I know there is a greater chance of me being killed in a car accident then the airplane falling to its death while I'm in it...but still.
I have personally being on a lot of flights this past year (mainly because of college visits), so my family and I have seen a lot of interesting behavior while at the airport. Yes, it's fun to people watch, but wouldn't it be embarrassing if you were the one that everyone can't stop looking at?
If any of y'all have read the book "Classy" by Derek Blasberg, there is a great picture detailing what to wear and what NOT to wear whilst at the airport. It's such a funny book and it actually offers tons of great advice on social etiquette. Anyway, it is imperative to not look like a slob while you're at an airport. Now, that doesn't mean wear an evening gown on a 5-hour flight, but it's not that hard to put on a nice pair of jeans, comfortable (and easily removable for the security line) shoes, and a pretty sweater!! You can't go wrong with that outfit!! I've had friends wear pajamas with me on flights before, and while I love them dearly, it's just not the time or place. It sounds awful, but people working at the airport take you more seriously if you're dressed better. I'll take anything that makes the flying experience better!!
Don't be the gremlin. Seriously. Don't. It's obnoxious and frankly rude to be annoying at the airport or on an airplane. Since the main 3 airports I go to are LaGuardia, JFK and Westchester, I've seen my fair share of "gremlins"...just be nice to everyone!!
Sorry if this came off as a harsh post, but I'm currently in the Memphis airport waiting to go home and I was inspired to write this!
On another note, HOW WAS DOWNTON LAST NIGHT?? I didn't get a chance to see it and I'm freaking out, I can't wait!! I had a family BBQ and I'm waiting to watch the Downton Abbey finale tomorrow night when I'm reunited with my mother.
Hi y'all!! I'm heading back down to my hometown this three-day-weekend to visit my father's side of the family!! I haven't been to Memphis in 3 years and it's about time that I visit my grandmother, as well as my aunts/uncles and cousins. My dad's side of the family is huge and it's going to be a lot of fun seeing them all!!
For today (Saturday), I'm going to be wearing something cute yet comfortable to wear on the airplane down to Memphis. Of course I had to include something pink!! The entire outfit, from the jewelry and clothes to the shoes, is from J. Crew.
On Sunday, I expect that we're going to go to church, so I'm bringing one of my favorite Lilly Pulitzer fall dresses!! It's one of the most flattering styles and I love this dress!!
For the rest of the day, and so that I don't get too uncomfortable in the dress, I'm bringing a pink sweater and black flats to pair with either jeans or grey leggings (shown in the picture above). Everything, again, is from J. Crew.
Lastly, for Monday and the plane ride back to Connecticut, I'm wearing a Vineyard Vines striped OCBD and pullover with jeans and flats!
I loooove the luggage that I'm using for this trip to Memphis. I usually use my favorite Lilly Pulitzer pink and orange super huge tote bag, but I got a C. Wonder rolling suitcase for Christmas and I finally have a chance to use it!! It's really bright pink, which I love, because my mother and I were both trying to hunt down a pink suitcase for when we were going on college visits.
I'm also bringing a small tote bag as my other carry on for my homework, my laptop, and for other small random things. It's pink madras!! With my monogram in pink!!
What are y'all doing this President's Day Weekend? Let me know!!
