More Graduation Gift Ides

I've had a little but of a one track mind recently. When I'm not thinking about decision day,  I'm thinking about Prom and Graduation. I'll be sure to post on Friday once I finally choose my college, but as of right now, I'm not committed anywhere. Eek! For someone who really likes to have a concrete plan for everything, I'm in a bit of a panic. To make matters worse, when my parents aren't grilling me on college decisions, they want to know what I want for graduation. In 8th grade, I was fortunate in that my extended family bought my cousin and I laptops, and my 2011 MacBook is still kickin'! I've thought about asking for and iPad Air, but I'm not sure if I really need one.

One thing I really do want is a Claddagh ring. I have a gold claddagh necklace that I used to wear daily, but when I got my silver monogram necklace, I switched to silver daily jewelry. I really want a silver claddagh ring to wear daily as I think it would be the perfect addition to everyday jewelry. My mom has her gold claddagh that she received when she was 18 and continues to wear it everyday!

I love the Claddagh from Lord and Taylor, and it's on sale for half off!
I also love the Kate Spade two tone Gramercy Chronograph watch. Don't you think it would look perfect paired with my monogram necklace and Claddagh?

Stressed {Life Lately}

There are so many decisions to be made right now regarding an extremely important time in my life and I'm stressed. So much of my life is up in the air right now and it's driving me loco.

Also, from 3-6pm everyday there is $.99 any size iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts, and they just built one on my way home from work, so holler for being over caffeinated!!

(like my koozie? e-mail me {} for a 20% code!)

Oh hey, see that scarf up there? That's the Lilly for Target Scarf that I snagged!
Jessica and I arrived at target at 7:40am expecting no one to be there, but boy were we wrong! There were about 75 people in front of us, and by the time the doors were opened, about 150 behind us! The racks were completely cleared by 8:01! We headed over to the other Target, but they were cleared out as well. When I went back that night to make a return, when I asked the women behind the counter if there was anything left, she showed me some things people had returned, and I couldn't leave without this scarf! Lucky me!!

Speaking of Lilly, I've switched over my closet to spring clothing, and it's looks a little something like this!

Behold, the wild Whiskers "Burrito" Arrigo in his natural habitat aka the heated blanket on high blast.

I picked this blouse up from Target the same day as the Lilly sale and I'm obsessed.
I'm not going to lie to you, it's from the pajama section, but I couldn't pass up such a soft tank with... wait for it..... POM POMS.

I paired it with my favorite jeans, white Jack Rogers (on sale right now!),
 and my Marley Lilly clutch for my Grandma's Birthday dinner!

Prom Hair Inspiration

Hey everyone! Prom is quickly approaching for me, and may have already passed for you, so I apologize, but today I thought I'd share some prom hair inspiration!

I haven't revealed my dress yet, on the blog, but after Prom, I'll be sure to post plenty of pictures!

My dress is fairly simple, so I'd like to keep my hair nice and sleek as well! I also hope do do my own hair, so I want to keep it simple.

Cute & Functional Grad Present

As I may or may not have mentioned three thousand times *cough cough* all I can think about is graduation. 
I think this Marley Lilly bag is the perfect gift for a High School grad. It's large enough to pack in for long weekends home or visiting friends at another school, but foldable, so it doesn't take up precious dorm space!

Plus, they come in a few colors!
What color would you get?

Happy Birthday Dad!

Happy Birthday to my Dad!
I have so many great memories with my dad, and can't wait to create many more in the years to come!

Easter Recap

Okay, Okay, so Easter may have been a couple of weeks ago, but I thought I'd share what I wore!
I ended up working brunch at the restaurant I work at and then we headed over to my Aunt's for dinner!

What's an "early" morning without a Venti Starbucks?

Summer Picks

Summer is fast approaching! The warmer weather seems to be here to stay (?!) and the school year is coming to a quick end. All I can think about is prom, graduation, college, and SUMMER!
Here are some things I need to pick up before summer begins.

Silk Camisoles are perfect to throw on with some cropped trousers for night timer bright chino shorts for shopping during the day!
One can never have too many striped dresses!
Believe it or not, I don't actually have a pair of wedges! These Jack Rogers are perfect for grad parties!
I've been lusting after a pair of classic Ray-Bays for ever, and I think these are just adorable!
I really love this twist on the classic First Impression Lilly Print. I think this dress would be perfect for graduation day with my white Jack Rogers!

Prom update: I now have a group, date and dress! I can't wait for May 15th! It's going to be such a blast! Stay tuned for more Prom-centered posts!

Team Spirit || Outfit of the Day

Our Household is extremely into sports. Now, I wouldn't call us particularly "sporty" as I can't play any sport with a ball without injuring myself or someone else, but we love sports. My brother and dad seem to spend more time at the Ice Rink than our own home in the winter. Our favorite sport would probably be Hockey. We are not bandwagon fans either. I've had a Chelios jersey since before I can remember and my dad frequently sports his vintage Hawks tees. I love the look of the Hawks jersey as well. The bright red and vibrant Chief on the front with the bold stripes on the sleeves is so classic!

Over Spring Break we traveled to Niagara Falls and on the way home, of course we had to stop off in Buffalo for a Blackhawks game! I was excited to wear my new Jonathan Toews jersey that I received for Christmas and match my dad! Toews had a great game (although I was having a heart attack those last 3 minutes).

Eleni helped me shoot these photos a few weeks ago, and what better time to share them than the end of the regular season!
