THIS WEEK #4

For some reason it’s been raining and cloudy quite a bit in the past week or so - not that I’m complaining. Like, at all.  But I mean, as much as I wish it was already fall, where is the sun?

lolita again

Here are  some things I really like right now so we're on the same page:

The Grand Budapest Hotel is absolutely magnificent.  Wes Anderson is an artist, and the sets and small details of the film are beyond amazing.  A must-see.

- This gif of a sunflower going through an MRI scanner.  Insane.

- I miss Amy tons.  She sent me the most amazing and wonderful birthday gift a month ago and I legitimately started crying because I loved it so much.  Lately she’s been jet-setting all over Europe and buying super pretty cigarettes - she needs to come visit me already.

- Speaking of Amy’s birthday gift to me, she bought me a version of the book Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov I’d been searching for for absolute ages.  I just found this top which reminds me of the cover.  Maybe I should buy these sunglasses too?

Ultimately, I’m gonna try and do interesting things worthy of blogging.  I’m still pale. Byeee.

It’s summer. It’s fine.

I’m one of those people that generally dislikes summer.  It’s always too hot, I don’t go anywhere exciting, and my friends are always off at camp.  Although, I have a new job at a    fro-yo shop (this could be bad for my health), college research to do, and friends to hang out with before they all leave me for the next couple of months.

Here’s my friend Justine being all adorable.

I also have a ton of reading to do and a to do list that just isn’t being accomplished. How has everyone’s summer been so far?

Finals, Spring 2014

This picture is the only thing keeping me from dissolving into a puddle of stressed and academically frustrated tears on the floor.

Birthday Tea at Sophie’s

My lovely friend Sophie hosted a birthday tea at her house on Sunday – the weather was sunny and warm, everyone had on their spring dresses, and although I didn’t get any macarons (ugh) it was a wonderful afternoon and I’m so glad we all got the chance to help Sophie celebrate.

The birthday girl and I! Love ya, Sophie, I hope you had an amazing birthday. xxx

Burberry Prorsum S/S 2014

I love pastel colors for spring and how pretty and “ladylike” they look.  Do you ever get into that mood where all you want to do is put on mascara and a skirt and go buy a bouquet of tulips or daisies? (This is equal and opposite to my black jeans, leather jacket, lets go drive around and blast loud music out of our car speakers mood.)

*I put ladylike in quotes because I use it to mean a sort of proper, pretty and ultimately girly type of thing rather than relating to stiff, harsh societal ladies.*

Anyways, I’ve been seeing the colors on the runways, in stores, and gosh do they make me happy.  But lets be clear on the type of pastels I’m talking about.  Burberry Prorsum killed it with their S/S ‘14 collection.  Crisp, clean colors in lace with jeweled details and sheer transparent elements was for lack of a better word, perfect.  Hands down the best collection I saw from fashion week a couple months ago.

Now that spring is most definitely here, its time to update my wardrobe.  I mean, I love my black jeans but a periwinkle blue dress isn’t going to hurt, right? Right.
