unexpected light

[ :: Kmart LYS top and skirt :: H&M dream catcher earrings :: Kenneth Cole NY clutch :: ]
[ :: Evans ring :: Dolce Vita x Target wedges :: ]

Who would've thought that you can walk into Kmart and walk out with this outfit? I didn't until I walked into the Kmart on 34th in NYC! I love the LYS line, even more so now than when the it was first released! The new designs are more on-point then ever, and I am so psyched to see that their Fall/Holiday 2011 collection is going to be just as fierce.
Another huge plus? I their social media team!

Anyway, I apologize for being so behind! Trying to play catch-up at work and sifting through the 700+ photos I took during FFFWeek has had me completely swamped!

More updates soon! I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!

Off to FFFWeek!

[ :: how much luggage i wish i could bring :: ]

Hey loves! ♥

I just wanted to drop a quick note that I'll be in NYC for FFFWeek starting Wednesday! :D I'll be at the Sunset Cruise, Lane Bryant Blogger Conference, Kmart LYS Bloggers Brunch, and Finale Runway Event, so if you'll be at any of these events, definitely come say hi! :D

Okay. Still need to finish packing! There is soooo not enough luggage space for all the things I want to bring! I almost wish I'd bought those bags that you can vacuum pack your clothes into. lol!

Can't wait to see everyone in NYC! :D

mind on vacation

[ :: Target maxi :: Forever21 vest :: Old Navy sandals :: Asos leather backpack :: ]
[ F21 necklace :: Evans and Torrid bangles :: Evans rings :: ]

My brain has been pretty much completely in vacation mode since Memorial Day...all I can seem to focus on is traveling and planning vacations! So far on the calendar in my head are...NYC for FFFWeek (yay! :D), San Francisco (anyone have suggestions on where to go/eat/shop/stay?), and Vegas, baby!
Can. Not. Wait! :D

Anyhow, I picked this maxi up this past weekend from Target! The print and colors pretty much sealed the deal for me! :) And it's a pretty good deal at $35. It's got cool macramé detailing at the nape of the neck, too. :) Paired the look with an excess of jewelry and my leather backpack for a day of enjoying the sun and shopping! :D

Yours, Etc.

P.S. 1000 followers? CRAZY. I you guys!!!! I've been accumulating items for a giveaway and I can't imagine a better time to have it! It'll be up in a jiffy so keep an eye out! :D
