Should iBeTrendy or get an iPad?


It’s a late friday night/saturday morning, I’m lounging on the couch with my kitten while thinking about important things like my favorite trends for summer and whether I should save for an iPad or buy a new wardrobe.  I decided since Clementine hasn’t been giving me much feedback, I would share my thoughts on the things with you:

FABULOUS SUMMER 2013 TRENDS VS. The iPad:

della

  Cat Eye Style Sunglasses: Kate Spade “Della” Sunglasses

There is something so whimsical about a cat eye.  Combined with a floral print, how can you possibly be having a bad day? Also, assuming you are wearing the sunglasses for practical purposes, it is probably nice out too. TOTAL WIN!

agenda

Bright Colored School Supplies: Lilly Pulitzer 2014 Agendas

Yes, I know it’s summer… but Lilly Pulitzer Agendas are going on Pre-Sale right now.  You will be kicking yourself if you don’t snag one of these vibrant organizers for school come fall. They might be that one thing that makes you smile as you’re jotting down Calculus homework.  Isn’t that worth it?

romper

A Wanna-be Retro Look: Polka Dot Picnic Romper

The closest I will get to leaving my house in pajamas is wearing a romper.  The 2 I have that I previously blogged about were so comfortable, I’m dying over a new one.  This one just happens to be vintage (inspired), my all time favorite style after preppy.

mmc

Wedges.. and mint anything: Make Me Chic Wedge Booties

I don’t always condone boots in the summer, because it’s the one time that my feet can breath.. but for shoes this cute I would make an exception.  Buying them in a neutral gives you the flexibility of “year round almost any outfit” potential, but that mint is just delicious.  So obviously that means you buy both.

loud

Patterned Pants: Chevron Wide Leg Pant

In case all of my other choices appeared subtle these pants should obviously clarify (HA).  I love the idea of such a loud pattern with a white polo or cardigan.  It takes classic and cranks it up a notch.. or 5.

tale

An Awesome Literary Reference: Asos ‘It was the best of times’ T-shirt

I’ve wanted the Kate Spade Great Gatsby clutch since it came out a few years ago.. I get such joy out of nerdy fashion collaborations   It was only natural I would drool over this Tale of Two Cities top.  You can even wear it inside out because it will say “It was the worst of times” Pair this mens style top with a skirt and cardigan, I dare you.

Some of these items were more cost effective that others, but the question remains:

Should iBeTrendy or get an iPad?

ipad

I’m an apple fanatic.. my iPhone and MacBook Pro rarely leave my side: do I make a nerdy techy decision over the well being of my summer wardrobe?

Oh, I could save money for NYC. There’s that too -LOL.

Rambling, saving, and accesorizing; shopaholic style.


Hey dolls,
I’m out of school for the day due to a National Honor Society ceremony this morning, so I figured I would blog. I slept a lot better last night even though it was still disgustingly hot, life is looking up. Here’s why:
1) I wore 5 inch nude heels at the ceremony and didn’t fall. See below:

2) Some rich people from Kingston, NY looked at our house Saturday and loved it.. so our humble abode may become someones vacation home :D. It’s in there top 2, so cross your fingers.
3) I’m going out to lunch with my parents.
4) My sunburn is going away.
5) I’ve successfully eaten healthy for one day.
Round of applause? Thank you, thank you very much.
The rest of my day is consisting of finding dorm accessories online, walking, tanning and accessorizing my friend Nicole, and relaxing. Can’t complain.
I have been thinking about Canisius a lot lately -NATURALLY-. I was debating opening a new page on my blog called Diary of A Canisius Preppy, for college and all things pertaining to it, what do you think? Not gonna lie, when I googled Canisius prep, I was pretty thrilled to have my blog as the first 3 results.. but I was looking for preppy bedding :P. I’m debating going the custom made route for my dorm comforter, there are so many preppy patterns to choose from. I found a pink and green one on http://www.amdorm.com that I thought was darling, but I’m kinda cheap when it comes to ordering online. If I don’t have a coupon code, I’m probably not going to order. Sue me.
Speaking of shopping, since my topics of conversation seem to always come back to that.. I’ve discovered some new apps that I am starting to become rather addicted to. Almost as addicted as poshmark. Have an iPhone or iPad? Check them out:
1)Style.ly- I’m still figuring it out, but it looks like you can get free money to shop with. So I’m obvv not complaining.
2)Shopkick- This is probably more handy for all of you people that DON’T live in the middle of nowhere, because I get like 2 kick results for places I can get points, but if you download the app and read the instructions… it seems really cool. I like free gift cards, coach bags, and cruises don’t you?
3)Coupons- As every good shopper should have, an excess of coupon apps. I personally feel that these coupon apps practically pay for my internet each month. That’s how much money they’ve saved me.
4)GeoQpons- Same story, different app, similar stores. Download them both.
And the best part? They’re all free. The worst part? They’re all new reasons why I’m lucky if I fall asleep before midnight.
Hope everyone has a fashion forward and fabulous day!
