Arm Candy

In my childhood, I had a favorite watch. It was a bubble watch with Ariel from The Little Mermaid on it. I loved looking at my watch- pretending to be a big girl (even if I couldn't tell time yet). When I spotted these Marc by Marc Jacobs watches, I instantly had a flashback. The candy colored hues of these watches remind me of the girly watches of yesteryear. I think these would be gorgeous along with an armful of bracelets this summer. Which color is your favorite?

Where to buy: Turquoise, Pink, Purple

Lovely Lilac

I am not really in the mood to write a lengthy post, but I had to tell you about my favorite new nail polish. It's called Lilacism by Essie. I actually bought it at J Crew (they had bottles at the cash wrap) and I was so excited to try it out! I had been dying to find a go-to nail varnish for the spring, and the stars aligned today- this purple is absolutely perfect!

Dead Man Tell No Tales

Whenever I go to Disneyland, I go on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride numerous times. I always search the pile of gold as I pass by it, for treasures I hadn't seen the last time. I recently came across a necklace that is in the spirit of the Pirates ride- and I am in love. The Bottled Treasure Pendant from Free People is the perfect delicate necklace to add to your collection. My favorite version of the necklace has a turquoise feather and gold flecks inside- and for $24.00 - it doesn't get much better! To conclude: Yo ho! yo ho! A pirates life for me!

Sweet Tarte

When it's sticky and hot out, the last thing you want is your makeup caking up or sliding all over your face. It's all about fresh, lightweight makeup with lasting power. A great product when you are running out the door, but you need something that will last all day is Tarte's Cheek Stain. With 9 shades, you are bound to fall in love with one of them! These stay on your cheeks, and give you a healthy glow. An added bonus? You can use these as lip stains as well! Buy one (or all 9) and stay gorgeous all summer long.

Life is a Carnaval

I don't think words can describe to you the love I have for the Carnaval Bag from Anthro. From the over-the-shoulder shape, to the fringe, to the all works! I am on a budget, so I can not splurge on this baby, but I can tell you about it, in the hopes that one of you can call it your own. This bag is so perfect for summer, and just about every activity that goes along with the warm weather. Alright- time to stop gushing! Enjoy the eye candy, and if you can- get your hands on it!

Summer Joys

There is something about spring and summer that makes me shift from more polished pieces, to something a tad more bohemian. Right now I want to be on the beach in Bora Bora wearing all white constantly, and sipping on pina coladas. Although I am not going on a tropical vacation, I can still fulfill my dream of wearing relaxed whites. The Things & Joys dress from Anthropologie is my current love. I will definitely be pairing this with some embellished sandals (maybe with some turquoise thrown in), and a thick brown belt. The dress can be a bit sheer at the bottom, so wearing something like this half slip by Calvin Klein would be a great solution. If you are like me, and adore this dress so much you wish you could have it in every color- get excited! No, you can't get it in every color, but it also comes in a dusty blue- which would look amazing for a summer lunch with friends. Let me know- what is your favorite go-to dress right now?
