Most Wanted Monday.

Kiel James Patrick's new Atlantic Pearl collection is seriously the most perfect thing I have ever seen. I've been totally obsessed with it since it came out & can't wait to purchase one of the bracelets for myself! I think it would be the perfect graduation gift. I love the combination of pearls & an anchor, not to mention the navy ribbon that acts as the clasp. Pearls with anchors & a navy accent? It really doesn't get any better than that!

What I'm Loving Wednesday.

Happy Wednesday everyone! This just might be the happiest Wednesday of all Wednesdays. Why's that? Read on to find out what I'm loving...

I'm loving that today is my last ever day of classes for my undergraduate degree! I can't believe that I'm finally & actually done. Now to just survive final exams & papers & I'll be done with my Bachelor of Arts degree!

I'm loving this bikini that I ordered online a few weeks ago. The retro halter fit is super cute & I love the classic navy colour. Plus the price was amazing. Cute & affordable swimwear - it doesn't get any better for summer than that.

I'm loving that there are so many new stores opening up in my hometown, including Kate Spade! It's pretty safe to say that I'll be spending a little bit of time (& probably a lot of money there). Do you shop at Kate Spade? What are some of your favourite pieces?

Most Wanted Monday.

I still have two weeks until I'm able to start shopping again, but I'm pretty sure I know what my first purchase will be. I've had my eye on this scalloped dress from J. Crew since I first saw it in the new arrivals a few weeks ago & I'm hoping to make it mine as soon as Lent is over! I absolutely adore the subtle scalloped detail around the neckline as well as the classic cut.

While I'm still waiting, I have plenty of time to debate over the colour that I'll buy. Do I stick with tried & true navy? Do I go bold & purchase the persimmon colour? Which would you choose?

Five Things Friday.

Get nauti edition.
There's something about spring (& maybe about being a DG) that makes me obsess over anything nautical. This spring, I'm loving J. Crew Factory's collection of all things anchored. Have you been to J. Crew Factory recently? Here are a few items that caught my eye on my last trip.

Charley Sweater in "All Over Anchor"
I saw this sweater in the store the other week & thought the anchor print was super cute for spring! I love that J. Crew Factory released sweaters as part of the spring line especially because we still have snow on the ground here! I think this would be super cute layered with a button down until it warms up!

Anchor Collector Tee in "Ivory"
One of my favourite things about J. Crew Factory is that you can often get items that you might have missed out on the previous year. I was super bummed last summer when neither my local store nor the website had this anchor print tee in stock! I'm hoping my local Factory store will have one for me - it would be perfect with shorts or skirts for summer!

Triangle Bikini Top in "Navy Floating Anchors"
I really loved the anchor print that J. Crew had last summer so I was super excited to see it on several Factory items, including swimwear! I love the classic cut & perfectly summery anchor print of this bikini. I think it would be perfect for oceanside lounging with a casual cap or big hat.

Anchor Collector Tee in "Navy"
I have the hardest time finding cute t-shirts for warm weather. You would sooner catch me in a button down than in a short-sleeved top! This t-shirt would be perfect with bright shorts for a casual summer look, don't you think?

Jacquard Dot Anchor Popover
I really, really wanted to love this popover because of the print but it was so boxy on me when I tried it on in the store! I was pretty upset about that, although at least that meant I didn't break my Lenten promise! I think that, on the right body, it would be super cute tucked into a skirt or shorts.

Charm of the South.

Southern Charm is one of my favourite Lilly prints of the season, whether in Pop Pink or Pool Blue. I just can't get enough! I think it's so sweet & pretty. I'm hoping to track down a few items in the print (like the Murfee in Pop Pink Southern Charm and/or the Braylen Tab Sleeve Tunic in Pool Blue Southern Charm) when I'm in Florida in May. What better souvenir of the south than something in Southern Charm?

Tunes on Tuesday.

It's no secret that I love country music. I'm always listening to it & I try to go to concerts whenever I can! A couple of weeks ago, KMF came to visit so that we could go see Lady Antebellum. It was such an amazing concert! I especially loved hearing some of my favourite songs, like "Compass" & "Friday Night" live! Have you seen Lady A live? What did you think of their show?
Speaking of concerts, I can't believe that Lady Antebellum was my eighth concert since beginning my 101 in 1001 list. Only two more shows (Florida Georgia Line & Luke Bryan) before I get to cross #39 off of my list!

It's a Jungle Out There.

It's officially spring when Lilly releases the spring prints, even if it's -40 & snowing out, which has been the forecast around here lately! One of my favourite new prints is Bungle in the Jungle, which is a playful take on party crashing. I can only imagine the party crashing that went on at Lilly's own parties when she was Queen of the Jungle in Palm Beach!
Out of the various items available in Bungle in the Jungle, I'm absolutely obsessed with the Cleona skort. I just can't get enough of Lilly skorts! I think the bright spearmint & turquoise is a perfect combination for summer. I would definitely wear this with a classic white tee or polo for a casual summer look.
