I'm officially done with graduate school as of Sunday night, when I handed in my last exam. It's an interesting feeling but overall a happy one. Next week is the official ceremony, so I plan to spend next week with my family and, oh yeah, apply for jobs.
My boyfriend and I took a mini trip last week to the other coast of Florida to watch the New York Rangers play. They (unfortunately) lost, but we had such a fun time! I even got to hit up a very amazing mall while we were there. Stores like Urban Outfitters are clutch when shopping with a guy because they have little fun gadgets to occupy them while we do some damage, isn't that right?
There was also some action on our lake this weekend with Florida's swimming competitions. I was a competitive swimmer from as far back as I can remember, so it was fun to look out the window, or sit on the dock, and watch the swimmers compete. It really does give me the urge to get back in the water again. Maybe this summer?!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I apologize for my lack of blogging last week, but there are plenty of outfit photos to come this week! xo

|Few photos from my weekend. How awesome is my new halo?!|
Now that my last semester of graduate school is coming to an end, the majority of my weekend was dedicated to finishing up the last bits of school work before graduation. These last two years have flown by and it's totally exciting and terrifying at the same time.
On saturday night, we went out to one of my favorite seafood restaurants in Naples, and Sunday was spent relaxing poolside on a picture perfect day. How was your weekend?

A maxi skirt with a bohemian vibe print on it? Of course I'll want it. My weakness for maxi skirts, and for prints, is pretty strong and uncontrollable (at times). Pairing this loud skirt with a basic black tank, and fun gold accessories, allows the skirt to do all of the talking, which is a lot! The weather is heating up down here, and I'm living by the rule that "less is more." What's your fashion weakness?

For me, inspiration is everywhere— in a simple photo, colorful flowers, a refreshing quote, street signs, etc. Now that the weather is getting pretty hot and humid in Florida, I've been reaching for lightweight, effortless pieces that are unfussy and don't require much thought. Finding light pieces to layer, or finding different ways to spice up a simple silhouette, can be challenging, but sometimes all it takes is a little inspiration and, of course, accessories!

Oh how this blog keeps me sane in this very unfashionable town that I reside in. I can honestly say that I am over seeing girls in jean shorts that are too tight or too short paired with tank tops that are too tight, too low, and, again, too short. Come on ladies! You don't have to show it all at once, am I right? Okay I'll stop venting now.
I'll discuss my love affair with these pants. Yes, I totally caved and bought the other color (see the other print here). Part of me loves wearing these pants around town because I get crazy looks like I'm some creature from outer space. Maybe I am? I'm not making this shit up. Whatever, I like my crazy hippie pants and will be wearing them more and more now, and maybe I'll even add a flowered halo next time.

|Flowered halos: I need one of these in my life— like yesterday. Find them here!|
|Rachel Zoe and her stunning all black attire that she rocks so effortlessly. Everyone needs a long black dress, right?|
|Leather vest: I have been searching for one for about a year now. No luck. Any advice?|
|This Reed Krakoff bag should be mine. I love the all black version too.|

Yup, I'm back in black. You can take the girl out of Connecticut but not Connecticut out of the girl. Black is my ultimate comfort zone. I truly believe that everything looks better in black. Agree? I find it a fashion score when I find a piece that turns out to be so versatile, especially one I didn't spend a lot of money on, and, of course, one that is black and white!
When starting my day, I find myself reaching for this dress when I can't figure out anything else to wear, which happens way too often. It fits great, the length is just right, I love the fit and flare, and I also love that it can be a skirt!
P.S— I've entered the StyleMint contest. Vote for me?

The heat is back in Southwest Florida, for real. I was in Connecticut last week for Easter break, and it's always so confusing to switch back in to Winter clothes or vice versa. After spending the week in my tights, thick sweaters, and leather boots, it was awkward to know exactly what to wear in this heat wave! It always takes me a week or so to adjust to the different weather patterns, but I do love each climate equally. Oh, and isn't this tee so fun? It was perfect for adjusting back to wearing less layers.
