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?

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!!

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?

With exactly two weeks left until Valentine’s Day it’s time to start thinking about a girl’s favorite thing: gifts! I’m sure you’ve seen Dogeared before, but ever since I went on a Nordstrom online window shopping binge (it’s a thing) the adorably chic line of jewelry has shot straight up to the top of my lust list. These necklaces and earrings would look great solo or layered with other gifts from your sweetheart!
“It’s the Little Things” Heart Stud Earrings – $40
“Every Great Thing” Heart Pendant Necklace – $62
What are you hoping to get from your hubby this V-Day?

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??

In the spirit of the holiday season (the beginning of which should be officially christened by Black Friday and not a day sooner), I thought it might be appropriate to start highlighting some unique gift ideas:
The first pretty present possibilities I’ve found are Jacob Lily Shoe Clips. Vivian Wu, a vintage jewelry collector, opened her shop this year to help other women embellish their shoes with her dazzling designs, turning just a single pair into twenty. I love the versatility of the clips and how they can transform flats, loafers, heels, headbands, bags, and necklaces. Jacob Lily has a wonderful “how-to” page and an awesome array of accessories in its shop. My personal favorite? The Chandelier Rhinestone Shoe Clips — silver, sparkly, and oh-so-sweet! Go grab a set for a special shoe-obsessed someone on your list!
