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!!

Is there anything better than the smell in the air as the seasons change from winter to spring? This is my absolute favorite time of the year. New grass is sprinkled with morning dew, flower buds are just beginning to pop up, and the sun is miraculously still in the sky even after dinner (and dessert!). Perhaps one of the things I am looking forward to most this spring is spending time running outdoors. I have always found jogging to be a great way for me to clear my head and I definitely get a lot more out of it being able to run around neighborhoods and bike trails rather than being stuck staring at the same gym wall while on a treadmill. And what better way to celebrate outdoor exercise than sporting some red, white, and blue for our beautiful country? My favorite short company, Krass & Co., has come out with a new line of women’s shorts and these patriotic pairs are to die for! Save 20% at checkout with the code “Usave” and treat yourself to a pair (or two!!).
Krass & Co. “Sam’s Shorts” – $39.95
Krass & Co. “America Shorts” – $40.00
