Sperry Crazed!

Hello- I hope everyone is having a great start to the week! I am going crazy not being able to go to school, the gym, out to eat with friends, and out shopping! I have been getting plenty of rest, so I am hoping this mono moves on soon!

Last week I bought these lovely pink Sperrys above, and I LOVE them. I LOVE Sperrys and I LOVE anything pink- so when I saw them, I knew I had to get them. While resting this weekend, I was perusing my regular websites for a little pick me up, and I saw these new patent Pink Sperrys!! Despite the fact that there are very few differences between the pink Sperrys I bought last week and these patent Pink Sperrys, I think they are JUST what the doctor ordered!

Photo Friday!!!

Even though I just started my own blog, I have been reading others for months now! I have seen Hopsy's "WASP Wednesdays" and my own sister's "Music Mondays", so I figured I would start my own themed day! This is the first (weekly) Photo Friday!! I have decided to post a picture and tell the story behind it! So for the FIRST Photo Friday, I have chosen this picture...

[Me, Jillian, Jeanne, Sara, and Kirsten!]
This is us last summer celebrating Sara's 19th Birthday!! I absolutely love getting dolled up and going out to eat- and this was one of those nights- full of great outfits, great food, and great company!!! Growing up, I was so lucky to be surrounded by a great sister and her wonderful, loyal group of friends. Now I am blessed enough to have a great group of friends my own age, and ALSO an amazing sister (slash best friend!) and all of her best friends, who in turn are also extremely close friends of mine as well! So thanks to you girls for being great friends! XOXOXO

Spring Has Sprung!

I am so excited for this nice weather- finally! This has been a long and dreary winter, even for NJ! The sun has finally come out, and all I can think about it is spring and summer clothes!! I can't wait to break out my favorite J. Crew critter chino shorts! On my wish list for this spring/summer, I have...

This new Vineyard Vines tote is CUTE AS CAN BE!!

This J. Crew Zebra Trench is fabulous and great for the spring!

And finally, this J. Crew silk taffeta bow dress is perfect for my aunt's May Wedding in Boston!

First Post!

Hi! I am so excited for my first post! I have been reading wonderful and preppy blogs for a few months now, especially my sister's! Jeanne has been trying to convince me to start my own blog for quite some time now, and I figured now was a great time to start! I just found out I have mono, and I am not allowed to attend classes for a few weeks. The doctor has ordered at least three weeks of pure rest, no going out, and no working out. When I heard this, I instantly thought it would be the perfect time to start up a blog and catch up on online window shopping and hopefully to try out some new recipes when I am no longer contagious! I have a HUGE sweet tooth, and whenever my sister Jeanne is home from college, we find ourselves baking up a storm! I miss my sister very much, but she is coming home for break next week and she promised to bake me something sweet while I am taking the doctor's orders and resting up! Here is a picture of me and Jeanne from this past Christmas season!
