Birthday Part 2

Finally home and exhausted from my eventful day out. My first stop with Greg was Goodwill, I found a couple things which is always great! But I just really love looking through the whole store, I would have been happy just doing that. Second stop was Point Pleasant! Goin' to the ~*JeRzY Sh0Re*~ ya know. It was so much fun, we mainly just stayed on the boardwalk and did the arcade games, I won a Domo stuffed animal! Then ate the famous 'larger than your head' pizza and boardwalk fries, went on the giant swing ride (which is my FAVORITE ride!), played mini golf and to top of the night had some fresh lemonade and funnel cake. It was the ultimate day, I'm so thankful to have Greg in my life.

I had this shirt on hold of awhile waiting for the Zara sale to begin (which is amazing right now, the prices are so low - go!) and only got it for $15! Such a score - as well as my purse on Zara sale right now for $20!

Birthday Princess

All I kept saying today is "It's my birthday I'm the princess" I didn't do much today because tomorrow I'm planning to go to the beach and boardwalk and all that fun stuff which I'm so excited for, so I'm planning for my birthday to be tomorrow as well so I can do fun things!

I got to wear my ModCloth dress I mentioned before that I got from my boyfriend for my birthday, I'm so in love with it and so excited to finally have something from the store I stalk everyday for their new items, it was my dream! It's the perfect dress and the heart back is so pretty and so feminine, it's the best combination for a birthday dress.

The big 20

Well it's my birthday officially, in 6 minutes I'll be 20. It doesn't feel like it though. I guess it never really does for me and I always feel like if I'm not doing something extra special than my birthday isn't a good one. Do you ever feel like that?

Well, one extra special thing I got for my birthday is this:
My first ModCloth dress, thank you Greg. I'm so excited to wear it today, you'll see pictures tonight or tomorrow hopefully!

The Good Old Days

Today I went to my cousin's graduation party and when I got home I found a goodie from my Pop-Pop! He left me a magazine called Reminisce the tag like is "The magazine that brings back the good times" and the cover had a vintage picture of a girl in a bikini. How could I not love it already? It's filled with old articles, old ads and old pictures along with recipies! It really is a great magazine. I have no idea where my Pop-Pop found it or why he had it but I'm so glad that I got my hands on it.

Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from articles you can read in the magazine:

How I Met My Spouse:

The colors in these photographs are how I wish every picture could look now, it's so rich and classic, and so vintage. I'm in love with it.

Doesn't this magazine look great? If you can ever find or get your hands on this grab it, it's such a great find with perfect pictures to hang on your walls after you read the articles :)

Out of the loop

While I was at the Hamptons I didn't really get dressed up because we didn't go anywhere but the beach! I fit this little outfit in when we took a drive into the center of town for a little. South Hampton is a little crazy, there was a Saks Fifth Avenue in the middle of town and a million other very expensive stores, it was interesting to see but I felt a little out of place!

I got this top a couple of days ago at Goodwill, it was a great find! It's 100% silk and it's originally from J.Crew! I was thrilled when I found it.

This clutch was a birthday present from my friend, I spotted it in Anthropologie awhile ago and thought it would be so cute to use as a clutch but I had no money on me so my friend actually went back and bought it for me! I'm in love with it and the fact that it looks just like an envelope! So cute!

Picture Sunday: South Hamptons

I'm back from the Hamptons and exhausted but I thought I'd dedicate this 'Picture Sunday' to my vacation to the Hamptons. I was staying in South Hampton right on the bay, I had a gorgeous view from my bedroom window, from the kitchen and basically everywhere in the house. The stars were so bright at night, most constellations I've ever seen. It was so relaxing and so much fun. I even got tan!

We celebrated my birthday, my friends made me a heart shaped cake that was delicious and I got a little gift from Anthropologie! I'm so thankful for my friends, they are the best.

I'm going to miss the views, and being minutes away from the beach, back to work tomorrow.
But good news, I'm getting the iPhone for my birthday this week, and my actual birthday is next Monday, one week away from the big 20!

Day dreaming

Today was an eventful day, it started out horrible but ended wonderfully. So big news! I'm going to the Hamptons this weekend for a long weekend with my friends from college. I'm super excited because it's an early birthday celebration for me too, as well as much needed relaxation! I've never been to the Hamptons and I'm hearing it's beautiful so I'm hoping everyone is right. The weather is going to be great too which is a big plus. But I won't be bringing my computer so I'll be gone from Thursday to Monday but I'll be back with many pictures of course!

This is what I wore out today, the shirt and scarf (it has such a cute print, the sun was too bright to see it!) are recent purchases from a local consignment shop, I feel in love with this top because of the polka dots and the peter pan collar! Who wouldn't love it? Also it goes with my "I'm only wearing blue and white to be like Zooey Deschanel" phase I'm going through.
