Happy Friday

I told you to wait for those Tory Burch flats and bag until a promotion. :)

I hope that I can squeeze in a trip to the TB boutique between assembling Ikea furniture this weekend. Enjoy!

Remember Me?

via Instagram (Follow me - msslindsay)
I have a new roomie! Unfortunately he's a Sox fan... but other than that I have no complaints. I bought these coasters at a gift shop in Chatham.

I spent all last week traveling for work and then came home to pack up for the move. I flew to San Francisco on Monday and then Las Vegas the next night for the remainder of the week. I. LOVE. VEGAS. My friends and I went a couple of years ago and are due back together! I was happy to scope out the scene for us. Unfortunately there wasn't a Prince Harry or Ryan Lochte sighting...

The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

I say it time and time again... I hate packing. Since I had a connecting flight on my way out there I did carry on because I have a fear of losing my luggage. I put one tote inside the other when boarding. My pink luggage really stood out on the gate check baggage cart.

One of the tips I have learned is to stick with one color scheme when traveling. This helps with coordinating shoes and bags that can take up lots of room. 

(Aw my first mirror pic... I really am a blogger.)

I try to find dresses that can be transformed for business with a blazer or sweater (in hand above). Since I am short I can make these dresses at Forever 21 work. I found this shift and the houndstooth dress the day before my trip. I am definitely not always that lucky when last minute shopping.

Back to unpacking...

Friday Five

UScoop is offering a $50 voucher at Fornash for $25 (Expires 8/19). Anchors, lobsters, elephants, horse bits.... lots to choose from.

Colored denim is back at Tarjay for the fall... I picked up a pair in burgundy.

I'm going to the Yankees vs. Red Sox game tonight. Flashback to one of the games we went to last year at Fenway... I was the lone Pinstripes fan but we won!

Attention travelers... have you ever used KAYAK My Trips? Once you set up an account, forward your airline and hotel confirmations to and they will be added to an itinerary. You can access it from the web or on your phone. The app also includes a flight tracker, which pulls from you trip plan and let's you know the status. Obsessed!


Speaking of traveling... I will be away all next week for work. First stop, San Francisco. I'm stressed out because I need to pack up for my move when I get home. Luckily I'm not going far, still in Connecticut. I hope to check in... if not I leave you with the cutest dog ever, Boo!

Lilly Loves AOII

via Instagram (Follow me - msslindsay)

You may recall my excitement earlier this year when Alpha Omicron Pi was one of the sororities that won Lilly Pulitzer's contest to be part of the Sorority Collection (see post Alpha Love). Thanks to Lifeguard Press, I have a few little reminders of my sorority days in Lilly form.

I'll be honest, I didn't like the AOII print at first but it has grown on me. I wouldn't wear the scarf or bag (available on Lilly Pulitzer), but I will outfit my phone.

Is your house part of the collection? Do you like your print?

Falling for...

I am reallyyyyy excited for fall shopping. I have been trying to resist the sale racks the past couple of weeks to save up for new arrivals. These are just a few things I have been lusting over. 

I'm hoping to snag a pair of those Tory Burch flats during a fall promotion. I may be in the minority but I like how there is a structured back on the Quinn style as opposed to the elastic on the Reva. Personally I find this more comfortable and think they don't show the wear over time across the heel.

Loving this fox print!

Who else is ready for fall?

After the wedding in Boston I headed to The Cape to see my girlfriends from college. My friend Amanda graciously hosted us at her picturesque Chatham home. I was the last to arrive but was informed via Facebook that one of these chairs was waiting for me.

Before our night out at the Squire.

Arrangement in mason jars.

One of my favorite scenes in Chatham.

Thanks again to Amanda for having us! "Don't Wake Me Up" xo

Lace at ASOS

Dress: ASOS. Necklace: Max and Chloe. Bag: Prada. Wedges: Pour La Victoire.

Do you shop online at ASOS? At first I was intimidated by the sizing since it's a European site. I did a lot of research on sizing before ordering but found varying reviews and nothing conclusive. Free shipping/returns allows for trial and error to find your fit. I love looking through their dresses and ordered this one last minute for Laura and James's rehearsal dinner.

The dress and a few others lace combos:
Rare Lace Top Skater Dress $85.45

Darling Chiffon Lace Sleeveless Bow Dress $98.77

Oasis Lace Leaf Skater Dress $93.63

Rare Contrast Lace Tutu Skater Dress $93.67

This dress comes in two color combinations and I am loving the low cut back.


Lace = Icing on the Cake!

Laura and James

Last week Teddy and I headed up to the Boston area for a wedding that we have been looking forward to for a long time! Laura and James were married at the Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy, Massachusetts. The venue overlooked Boston, where they have both lived since meeting back in college.

Dress: Shoshanna. Necklace: Max and Chloe. Earrings: c/o JoJo Loves You.

Teddy and James are longtime partners in crime friends and I know he was honored to have been part of the wedding.

I loved the covered buttons down the back of Laura's dress. She looked beautiful!

The paisley pattern on the cake deserves a close up shot. Not only was it beautiful, but I can attest all three flavors (vanilla, chocolate, carrot) were delicious. 

My friend Rosalin and I both wore Shosanna dresses.

Congratulations to Laura and James! Have fun on your honeymoon in Turks and Caicos!
