glamorous gal

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!!)



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?

morning, noon, & night

mnnThis spring break I will be headed down to Florida to visit my grandma and meet up with my twin sister who also has her spring break at the same time! I am so looking forward to the warm weather (remember Monday’s post?) and already brainstorming awesome outfits for some fun in the sun. I think this bright and blue collection would be perfect for a day down south. A casual tank and shorts for errands in the morning, a cute dress for an afternoon snack, and a flow-y frock and a classic jean jacket for a breezy night walking in the sand. Anyone else have fun plans for their spring break this year?

comfy casual


My sister knows how to rock a great outfit (see here), but the other day she sported a particularly incredible comfy-casual look that I just had to write about. Her simple baseball tee paired with a tight, dark blue mini skirt works perfectly for a lunch out on the town. Add to that some wonderful gold accessories and an easy cross-body bag and you’re ready for some post-sandwich shopping!

When I visited my sister at Caltech the other week, I got to take a gander at her balcony attached to her lovely dorm room. Can you even imagine going to a school where such a thing exists? (My answer: Um, no.) I took the opportunity in the sun to snap a few pics of my fun and colorful outfit. Certainly not the best look for anyone in the Northeast right now, but perhaps as a vacation ensemble??

The weather in upstate New York recently has been absolutely fickle; just as I am about to bring my warmer weather wardrobe home for the season, we have another streak of 70 degree + days… How am I supposed to adapt? Never mind that on top of the day-to-day fluctuations, we’ve been having very California-esque morning-to-night temperature changes. I leave my house in the morning rather bundled up, only to suffer from a heat stroke half way through the day. I guess the only solution for now is to layer, layer, layer! And just like how they always say to mix “mis-matching” prints, don’t be afraid to mix “mis-seasoned” clothing! A chunky-knit sweater with a striped dress and jacks? C’est chic!
