h&m tank, j. crew skirt, h&m belt, j. crew bracelet (stolen from Mommy), michael michael kors
west end thong sandals, j. crew hat (stolen from Mommy), ralph lauren aviators

Hello, loves! We're back after another fun-filled weekend. Memorial Day always signals the beginning of summer for us, and this year it brought summer weather, too! It's HOT. I wish I were off sunbathing today, but with lovey off at summer classes and Sally still in school, I'm on my own! (Oh the woes of being a slacker.)

So I'm heading out the door for the day in this super floppy J. Crew hat! I find the most amazing things in Mommy's closet. I'll be tempted to play with it all day long - Let the snickers ensue ;)

[p.s. a huge thank you to all of you for your lovely comments!
A big welcome and hello to all of our new followers, too!]

h&m skirt, h&m tank, h&m necklace, h&m/forever 21 bangles, h&m wedges (stolen from mommy)

Finally some sunshine after days of drearyness - celebrating with my new H&M skirt and necklace,
Mommy's new H&M wedges (hehehe), and bare limbs, of course!
Although I've now realized I'm in desperate need of a tan..

Off to catch some rays!
(Or at least reflect them onto everyone else with my paleness..)

Hope everyone's having a sunshine-y day!

we're baaack

Consider this our weekend photo journal - enjoy!

let the festivities begin!
fried banana and vanilla ice cream as we sang happy birthday to our beautiful momma.

sally off to a surprise party!
wearing: h&m blazer and top, j. crew skinny cargos, coach wedges, and chanel bag

vintage straw platforms spotted at ralph lauren EH.
comfortable? debatable. insanely cool? absolutely.

jilly and her lovey made waffles for breakfast. they forgot to grease the waffle iron first.
he thought it was hilarious. she thought of the mess she'd have to clean after..

..they both feasted nonetheless.

jilly strolled around EH and ended up in j. crew where she tried on this cardigan
(she bought it in white (or, in j. crew lingo, 'sea salt'))!
her lovey snapped a picture, and the lovely saleswoman told them photos weren't allowed. oops.

lovey insisted on a home-cooked meal for his birthday. luckily for all of us, he's an amazing cook!
this was one of seven pizzas he whipped up for the celebration.

jilly and her lovey on a post-meal beach stroll.
lovey did the "strolling" part, sally snapped the pics.

even though lovey insisted on cooking, we couldn't possibly recreate his favorite crumbs cupcake!
we all sang, and then attempted to divvy it up eleven ways.

twinnies! jilly and her lovey in matching havaianas (one of lovey's birthday gifts from our parents)!
(they didn't know it yet, but their cuffed jeans were currently filled with sand -
they figured it out later when lovey's couch was feeling aaaaawfully gritty..)

So there you have it! A weekend well-spent with wonderful people.
From last post's comments, it sounds like many of you had great plans this weekend, too!
Yay for spring and sunshine and happiness all around!
It's good to be back.

the one where i attempt to fit my entire weekend into one bag..

We have a weekend jam-packed with fun and activity ahead of us: birthday parties, surprise parties, culminating with a trip out east for some relaxation, food, and family! It kicks off today with our beautiful, amazing Mommy's birthday! We're off to a celebratory lunch now, and later, it's back to squeezing as much as we can into the tiniest of bags. (Wardrobe changes accounted for, of course).

What are your plans for the weekend? Anything wonderful and exciting? We sure hope so!

h&m striped top, zara shorts, kenneth jay lane necklace, vintage sandals (stolen from mommy's closet)
gold rings from a movie theater vending machine (i kid you not - check out the 'made in china' tag)

Most of my time this week has been spent in sweats, loafing around inside the house with books and review packets in hand. So today I brought the beaming sunshine indoors with this super-colorful getup. It's still rather cozy for a day full of studying! (Although I can assure you, as soon as I get back from grabbing lunch with my lovey that necklace and those shoes will sadly be returning to their respective closets - I was just desperate for a little embellishment after being stuck in PJs all week!)

the aftermath

h&m striped shift dress, zara button-down blouse, zara green skinnies, zara blouse

Test 1 down, 3 to go. A much needed but totally unexpected post-exam shopping session with Mommy
(she's the greatest) left me with these new additions to my closet, as well as a few more goodies.

But for now, sweatpants are winning out.
Back to the books!

happy mother's day!

Our best friend; our inspiration; our style icon; gorgeous inside and out;
the most amazing person in the world - and we're lucky enough to call her Mommy.
Wishing you all a very Happy Mother's Day!

full steam ahead

j. crew cardigan, rugby pants, h&m tank, rugby bag (stolen from sally), prada wedges,
tiffany chain with initial ring (gift from my godfather), lia sophia earrings, tiffany rings, rolex watch
I crawled out from under the mound of books that have been smothering me lately for a lunch with my Mommy and Grandma. It's finals time, and any amount of sunshine I can get is much appreciated these days (hence the highlighter yellow cardigan). These wide-legged pants from Rugby have been chillin' in my closet for a while, so they joined us on our lunch date. And what better to pair them with than my Pradas? These wedges are my loves - I am a giant in them, in the greatest way possible. They make me feel like I can conquer anything! (like, say, 4 upcoming exams..)

Time to get my study on.
