Weekend Instagram: Out With The Old, In With The New

June 4, 2012

Weekend Fashion

My new duds from Down East Basics– …bracelet, earrings & see the cute halter-esque top on the shirt?! /  My FAVE summer sunglasses the Wayfarers from TOMS.  I love summer style but never put much thought into cultivating a bright, fun wardrobe until now.  I’m trying new shops and new brands- totally love it!


My bestie Whitney sent me an amazing graduation gift and a heartwarming card with some champagne!  Tres Chic! My friends have such good taste… so I class it up with these glasses, haha!   I can’t stock up too much on glassware though (as much as I’d love to!)  since I’m relocating…more deets as soon as I have ’em!


A good weekend is not complete without food!  I grabbed some sushi from the local grocer with a new cream ale I haven’t tried… (spoiler: not creamy enough but good).  /  Japanese candy is just so fun, and delish.. it’s meant to be playful and savored!  /  Coconut bubble tea from Argo & a macaron is summer heaven!

…and now, out with the old, in with the new!  You ever have a fragrance you get tired of?  I wore Sexy Little Things for about 2 years and feel it doesn’t “fit” anymore.  Especially when you go through life changes and relationships ends, I feel that the fragrance is the perfect way to represent that!

I adore Twirl by Kate Spade- I originally tried with my Birchbox subscription box and fell in love!  (just what I need! haha).  I don’t know how people can wear the same fragrance for 20+ years!  As soon as I experience a life change or  a scent reminds me of an old boyfriend, I feel the need to change my signature scent!


Do you have a favorite signature scent?  How do you like to change things up?

    (bg) Congrats on your graduation! I am like you, I need to change my fragrance every so often. I really don’t know how women can wear the same perfume all their life.

  4. OMG so much good stuff in one post!!! The bubble tea looks so yummy…and I love Pocky! And Yan Yan haha. There’s this snack I saw at Wal-Mart that looks like Yan Yan but it’s actually nutella…mmmmm.

    Can you take a pic wearing the Toms’ Wayfarers?! Love them. And what is this relocation you speak of… you have to tell us!

    I am currently in love with Heavenly from Victoria Secret and have been for a while. While I get the perfume samples in my Birchbox each month, I really wish I didn’t since I don’t use them that often. (bg)

    So many great things! To change up things in my life, I like to go in new stores I’ve never tried before at the mall. I usually hit the same stores every time, but going into some new shop is a great way to find some new piece of your style you didn’t know you had before. Or, you may remember why you only go to the same shops every time. Haha
