Island Life


We rang in the New Year at a luxurious spot in Antigua, a beautiful island in the West Indies. We spent the week soaking up sun, sipping on rose and hitting the golf course.

Style tip: Vacation is the perfect time to go outside your comfort zone – try a trend, opt for a new silhouette or [in my case] embrace color & print. You may surprise yourself!

Weekend Recap: Coney Island

The trip begins…

Scream Zone… somehow I was convinced to ride BOTH scary roller coasters

Hot mess, wearing – Sunglasses: Ray Ban, Tank: UO (similar), Shorts: UO (old), Watch: Michael Kors

A more mild ride: The Tickler
Delicious funnel cake, which I got all over my face
Cool old fashioned cash register… plus it is PINK!

We had a great day spent at Coney Island. The manfriend and I were like little kids again! We went on rides, played a couple carnival games, walked the boardwalk, and enjoyed some funnel cake and ice cream. What could be better? Hope you all had a great weekend too!

Officially Done and Off to the Shore!

I took my last college final this morning! This is what I wore… Excuse the hair, I had a long day of sunbathing, er studying yesterday. Also, the manfriend took these shots while I was packing up some of my apartment. Some (or all) of them are very unprofessional… 🙂

Wearing – Tank: Michael Kors, Sweater: UO, Boyfriend shorts: Gap, Shoes: Steve Madden, Watch: Tommy Hilfiger, Jewelry: vintage, Alison Moses ring, Stephen & Co. skull earrings

The manfriend: “Hehehe butt shot”… Followed shortly by my grow-up look’: (signature look, don’t even try to copy)

What can I say, we have our fun. Anyway, now that I am officially done with finals, my friends and I are headed to the beach for the weekend! Hopefully I will get lots of photos to share. Have a great weekend!
