So, we all know that I’m completely and totally obsessed with bunnies, and for that matter, anything small, cute and fuzzy. Well I recently stumbled upon the Animal Print Shop, and I was going to include this in last week’s Link Love post but I just had to give it a post of it’s own. I now have this dream of decorating my future baby’s room in a gallery wall of solely prints from the Animal Print Shop – and you will too once you check out their site. Basically, they have captured and framed (for an extremely reasonable price) every cute animal in the world. You must take a peek! That baby bunny just has me gushing.
I haven’t done too much shopping for myself while in London – I’ve mainly been collecting pieces for Father’s Day, my mom’s upcoming birthday and for my (very lucky) boyfriend – but that definitely hasn’t stopped me from looking! There are a few key pieces that I’m on the hunt for right now – a farmer’s market tote (with a twist), great printed, silk shorts, and either a printed blazer or pants. Here are some pieces I’m debating on getting and I need your help – if you had to pick 2, which would you buy?
Happy Thursday, loves! I’m heading off to Dublin this afternoon to spend a long weekend in Ireland – I’ve never been before, so I’m really looking forward to it. I thought I’d leave you with some links to start your Thursday off right. Be sure to have a fabulous weekend without me – I’ll be recapping everything when I get back, so stay tuned.
+Madewell always does me dirty with their bags (remember when I bought this one in white? Obsessed.) but I think I may have a new favorite in this canvas tote. It just screams “buy me!”.
+I went to the Borough Market in London last week and could not be more obsessed – if any of you are ever in town, you absolutely must check it out! I came home with bags of fresh produce, pastries and other goodies and only spent 15 pounds. Bargain!
+I recently pulled the trigger on these Michael Antonio “Portia” flats in red + nude, and I could not be more excited to receive them! And what a steal…
+This might sound odd, but I’m totally obsessing over the idea of these Gap bras. There’s something so chic about losing the underwire and just surrendering to the comfort. I think I just might have to take one for a spin!
I always love series showcasing different outfits to wear at different occasions – I think it’s so fun to create different outfits depending on where you’re going. I’ve recently started thinking about what I’m going to wear to my boyfriend’s birthday dinner (in just under 3 weeks we’ll be reunited for it!) and I thought I’d put together my guide on dressing for special occasions, starting with this one.
I love the idea of wearing a flirty dress to special dinners, especially for your man’s birthday. I chose this white dress so that I could pair it with some killer accessories – nothing screams summer like a white dress + bold brights!
I escaped the craziness of London this weekend and headed to the beach town of Brighton. Since it’s only about an hour outside of the city, this town was the perfect place for a quick getaway. Along with some girlfriends, I laid on the beach, shopped (maybe too much) and ate at some great places! Take a peek at my Brighton adventure.
After being in London for a few weeks now, I’m starting to realize there are certain staples that you can’t really go without in this city. The main way to describe London fashion is super trendy. I’ve put together a list of London fashion musts – check it out!
Whew – I’m ready for this week to start winding down into the weekend! Today is my last day of classes for the week, and I can’t wait to have a four day weekend full of relaxation and exploring. Here are a few links to brighten your day and get you through to the weekend!
+I’m absolutely lusting over this bar cart. For some reason, turning 21 and the idea of getting to decorate my first house out of college in just under a year has made me obsess over interior design (specifically bars) – my “Home Life” Pinterest page is overflowing with ideas!
+Love art prints? I recently discovered Bertie & Jack from Bath, England (and got the most adorable bunny print – my obsession never ends). Be sure to check them out! They would make the sweetest gifts.
+This Pucci bikini is just screaming my name – those soft hues are just too much! Now all I need is a place to wear it…
Much of my time here in London has been spent touring museums and just wandering around this amazing city. The other day we stopped in at the Victoria and Albert Museum which is, conveniently enough, just around the corner from my apartment. Dressing for London can be tricky – even when the weather looks beautiful out the window, a torrential downpour can begin at a moment’s notice (we experienced this firsthand the other day). While here, I’ve made sure to layer, always have a rain jacket and/or umbrella with me at all times, and have tried to avoid looking like a tourist at all costs.
I was also fortunate enough to stop in at the Tateossian store on Kings the other day. Tateossian has incredible jewelry – this green bracelet being one of my absolute favorites! Be sure to check out their site if you’re interested in a truly iconic London jewelry brand.
The past few weeks have been mildly surreal to say the least – my days have been filled with activities such as touring Cambridge, visiting the Globe Theater and seeing The Tempest, visiting Stonehenge and just wandering around this amazing city. I wanted to update you guys with some photos from my travels – if we’re friends on Facebook you may have seen some of these before!
