red white and bike

I have had (and am about to have) a rather eventful and exciting week. This past Sunday I went to the Boston Arcade Fire concert with some comrades. It was a fantastic show! And in two days (!) my friends and I are traveling to Maine for our annual group retreat. The thought of stuffing 11 people into a teeny quaint cabin might sound terrifying, but I am deliriously excited and can’t believe it is almost here!! It is a little bittersweet however, because it marks the last month of summertime. But I am looking forward to the crisp air, Maine activities and some good, old-fashioned bonding time.

In my excitement, I reached for one of my go-to (and favorite) patriotic color pallet. I love this outfit, and it combines all of my favorite outfit elements: whimsical prints, red lip stain, Marc Jacobs ;), and this H&M top which was the best-30-dollars-ever-spent by far. I have worn this thing to death and intend to wear it as long (or longer) than possible. I’m positive you will see numerous posts of me wearing it. I wore this on a little shopping spree at a fantastic shopping plaza my Floridian friend told me about. There were all of my favorites – Anthropologie, Free People, UO etc. etc. – and I managed to find some amazing things. I’m excited to show you! Stay tuned ;)








{today my sweet boyfriend stopped by unannounced with a spontaneous bouquet of beautiful flowers :} aren't they lovely!? there were a bunch of similar beauties spilling out of the pots at this plaza}



{so many great finds hide inside! I'll be posting them soon...}

{H&M top; Zara skirt; Moschino skinny belt; Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes; Dooney and Bourke shoulder bag; Lucky Brand peace ring and flower bangle; J Crew bracelet}
