College Shopping... the beginning

My mom and I hit up Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond for our first round of college shopping the other day- OVERWHELMING! I came prepared with a two page, double sided, list of everything I could possibly need and I'm pretty sure we got at least 75% of it done. It's not even August yet and already my room is suffering from college invasion.

EVERYTHING is pink and green, I swear this wasn't on purpose!



Ah, I miss it so much. I am craving a sandwich from Something Natural sooo badly. By the end of the trip I perfected my order: turkey, tomato, bacon, lettuce, mayo, and avocado on oatmeal bread. AH. Only the best sandwich in the entire WORLD.

Look at the size of this bread!
The official flower of ACK.

Our house had the cutest decorations.

I'd never been to a beach with big waves before, so this was definitely my highlight!

My mom ordered these for her store, and I cannot wait to get a pair! They are so comfortable and a flattering shape, which I find rare for rain boots, and obviously I love the monogram!

Cupcakes & Cashmere

Despite the fact that I read her blog everyday, we don't usually have the same taste as far as outfits go. This one, however, is STUNNING.

Bargain Hunting

Lately, my favorite stores have been TJ Maxx and Marshal's. When I go to the mall, I leave feeling annoyed that they didn't have exactly what I was looking for or that if they did, it cost way more than I can afford. However, TJ Maxx and Marshal's have not let me down. A few months ago, I found a Trina Turk bikini at TJ Maxx, the other day I was on a hunt for an inexpensive computer case, a plastic cup, and cropped tank top, and happened to find all of those things at Marshal's for a total cost of less than $20. But yesterday, Christina and I went and we both found the perfect shoes. Her's were pretty leather midcalf boots for $24.99 and I got a pair of Jack Rogers flats marked down from $198 to $49.99.

The best part? These are still being sold at www.jackrogersusa.com for $198.

Lilly Agenda

After MONTHS of waiting (literally), it FINALLY came while I was in Nantucket. It's actually everything I hoped it would be and more. I was so obsessed with the standard school issued one from last year, writing down every single thing I planned to do, that I figured if I am going to be using it so much I might as well get a pretty one.

I am in loveeeeeeeee.

July Books

I finished allllllll of my June books and they were all so good. After The Help there was a terrible span of two days where I was stuck in Marion with nothing to read, but now I am home and have had a successful trip to the library.

I used to hate the library because it didn't have the pretty displays and new book smells the bookstore had, but that was before I found the perfect solution to my Library Problem: I go to the bookstore first, make a list of all the books I would buy if I had any money to actually buy anything (let alone books), and then get them at the library. That way I don't have to spend hours aimlessly searching before getting frustrated, and then I won't have any buyer's remorse. See? Perfect solution. Here's what I've got so far.

I read the first one and it was kind of stupid but it held my attention, so why not.

Cause the movie is coming out soon.

So good. So so so good. Perfect summer read. Reminds me so much of The Last Summer.

Brimfield Fair

Another thing crossed off the summer to-do list: today Tycho, Hannah, and I went to see the Brimfield Fair. It was SUCH a hot day and we walked soooo much, but it was worth it cause we saw tons of cool things! It was more of a museum/picture taking experience than a shopping experience... I didn't buy anything except for four water bottles, which I proceeded to drink over a span of four hours (thats how hot it was). I brought the Nikon and took TONS of pictures, here are my favorites:

Everyone, stop what you are doing and go buy this book right now. I literally have not been able to put it down, for the past three days it has gone everywhere with me. And the movie coming out this summer looks great also!
