Woo-hoo! The weekend is here! And man, it’s crazy how time is flying! I’m excited because today marks 1 week and 1 day until the next blogger meet-up with my tri-state crew. I’m very much looking forward to seeing all of these fabulous ladies, again. This time, we’re going to Laduree! The group went once in the past, but I wasn’t able to make it so I’m super excited the group is making it there again. The venue looks like it would be right up my ally, if you couldn’t tell from the look of my blog, and I just love french macarons so much! Yum!
What’s everyone up to this weekend? Are you looking forward to anything coming up?

This isn’t a sandal that I would typically choose but for some reason, I’m really loving it! Maybe it’s the elegant black and white palette or my enthusiasm over summer, but nonetheless, this sandal is amazing.
I love a good floppy hat for the summer and this one is amazing! Of course BR does it, again! The zig zag pattern is trendy and unique, while the classic black and white palette makes it ultra chic.
I don’t know what it is with me and crop tops, lately! Perhaps it’s the fact that I’ve been craving one but haven’t given into it yet. I really love this color block top! It’s so chic! This is the perfect crop top for a twenty-something.
I’m such a fan of Kate Spade and although it’s rare that I get to buy one of her bags, I’m always stalking the website for the new styles. This one really grabbed my attention because I like elephants and I love how it looks like origami! What a cool bag! Kate Spade’s statement pieces are always the best.
I’ve been wanting one of these sleeveless blazers for months- since winter, to be exact- but I just couldn’t find the right one! For a while, I couldn’t find a single store that had them just yet. But I HAD to have one because I wanted to recreate a look worn by Shay Mitchell (see photo:  ). Finally, I think I’ve found one that might work and the store selection is a surprise to me. I’m not usually into F21 but I’m really digging their contemporary line! This just might be ‘the one!’ #loveatfirstsight
