Last Friday my little sister had her Senior Gala. Every year my old high school throws this semi-formal dance at the local Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia for the soon-to-be graduated seniors. The night is a great way to celebrate with your classmates one last time and snap a bazillion pictures. Of course, the best part of the event is shopping for it! I helped my sister find her dress at Piper Boutique in Saratoga Springs last week (when I purchased this little number) and she looked absolutely stunning in it. Definitely one of those dresses that you see a girl wearing and you think to yourself, “Darn! That’s what I should have worn!”
(p.s. I did her hair!!)

Next week I will be turning 22! I actually can’t believe it. But, as is only natural, it is of the utmost importance that share a birthday wish list with y’all. Here’s what I’m lusting after while I’m feeling twenty-two:
Warby Parker Glasses | Statement Necklaces | Tory Burch iPhone Case | Essie Nail Polish | Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag | A Puppy 🙂
A totally reasonable list for a twenty-something year-old, no?

Today I bought this little number with my sister in Saratoga for all of my various graduations and summertime parties I have coming up in the next few weeks. It was quite the financial investment in my book, but I figured cost-per-wear it was justifiable (ok, I know biggest excuse ever, but it is sooo beautiful!). What do ya think?

For me, shopping is a lot like hunger; if I eat something, I’m not hungry for a little while, but inevitably the feeling always comes back. If I purchase something, I’m alright for some time, but then the need comes back with a vengeance. I haven’t gone shopping in a longgg time (unless you count buying shampoo and conditioner… the 99 cent kind, mind you) simply because my bank account refuses to accumulate any kind of savings above a certain amount (weekly toiletry runs and gas tank refills wipeout what little I’ve made each week in a heart beat). But recently I’ve come into some cash (from my award ceremony a few weekends ago — yay for cash prizes!) and I’m planning on using it this Friday with my little sister on an outlet shopping extravaganza! Memorial Day deals? Count me in! My wish list includes casual wear items for the few weeks of summer that I do have off as well as some business attire for what will soon be my entire life. Regardless of what I will be buying this weekend, I can’t wait!!

The other day I received two new paris of Krass & Co. shorts in the mail. I got Beachcomber in navy and Wildflower in white. I already loved the few pairs I had, but these take it to a whole new level. They are absolutely perfect. The navy pair makes me feel oh-so-fit while the white pair makes my legs look sooo tan! There is nothing better than the feeling of working out, and there is no better way to work out than while looking great! Krass & Co’s new line of shorts are to-die-for and you should treat yourself to a pair right away 😉 Perfect for easy jogs, quick runs, and cat walks!
And don’t forget to use the code “Usave” at checkout to received 20% off!!

Let’s just say there’s nothing like some fashion inspiration to get a girl through the middle of the week. I swear, between Bloglovin‘ and Pinterest, I have all the escape I need sometimes! Here are a few lovely ladies that are keeping my fashion frenzy fueled:
How cute is Cait of Southern Curls & Pearls? And can we please talk about those jeans?!? NEED THEM NOW.
Emily of The Sweetest Thing is just stunning and I love how she’s pulling off neon with such a classic silhouette here. Definitely can picture myself walking down the streets of Manhattan wearing something like this come summer…
I wish I had a sailing trip on my horizon, because this flow-y cover-up is just too wonderful! Thank you, Julia of Gal Meets Glam, for sharing this!
I think Kate Spade can literally do no wrong. This simple monogrammed necklace would be great for layering or alone!
Although I like Carly’s outfit here, it’s really her hair that I’m lusting after. Usually I’m one to notice how someone’s hair is styled over anything else, but here I am seriously crushing on that color! Does she dye it? Should I dye mine??
Happy Wednesday, dear readers! How are you amping up your outfits to get through the week?
