Spring (Break) Essentials

Post-school you don't really get a spring break! Or at least not the kind you had in college. I have taken spring trips for work the last two years but that is definitely not the same thing. This March I actually have a full week off of work! I decided to stay home and relax. Catch up on my dvr, organize my apartment, see friends, and just rest! But if I were going on a fun trip these are the things I would pack!

Pretty in Pink

Nautical by Nature

Crazy for Coral

Are you going anywhere fun for spring break?

My Oscar Party

I love hosting an Oscar viewing party. I think it's more fun to watch with friends (I think we talk the whole time!). I reused a lot of the same decorations from last year. I couldn't find my cookie cutter (lost in my move I think) but my mom picked up cookies from Clementine (thanks, Mom). They were almost too pretty to eat! I had wanted to get photos of guests wearing the Hollywood glasses I found but everyone arrived at the same time and I forgot to encourage the glasses. Next year! It was great having blog friends Leeann and Brooke along with some nanny friends and my high school friends.

Had to have a red carpet

Balloons on the directors chairs (aka my bar stools)
Movie giftcard for the person who guesses the most winners correctly
Oscar cookies and brownie bases from Clementine
Cupcakes from Brooke, I had these toppers leftover from last year
Fun plates, napkins, decorations (before the food arrived)
I always think it's funny to put this tape on my bedroom door

Did you watch the Oscars?

Linking up with Leeann for Monday Morning Gossip

Oscar Worthy Dresses: What Would I Wear?

Last year I posted about a beautiful pink Katie Ermilio dress for Friday's Fancies. Not your traditional red carpet choice but in my Oscar dream I can wear what I want!

This year I decided to check out the spring line to see if there was anything I loved as much as the pink dress from last year. Here are my two favorites from Katie Ermilio Spring 2013.

Will you be watching the Oscars this weekend? What would you wear to the Oscars?

HIHO Caribbean Clothing

Today I am featuring HIHO clothing, a nautical company based in the British Virgin Islands.

HIHO clothing is based on the tropical lifestyle its owners (BVI residents since 1969) love so much, and is influenced by the pristine environment and island life. HIHO clothing is soft, designed to be functional, colorful and comfortable in a chic island way. The casual, cool and elegant designs and the original prints are the hallmark of the HIHO brand.

Jeannie beach sweater (I was sent this top to review and can't wait to show you how I styled it!)
your favorite sailor tee dressed up in luxe linen

Of course I had to include the Kate shorts in navy (they come in other colors too)

I really want a cute striped coverup dress for my next vacation!
Beach sweater (I love the bright raspberry for spring and summer but it comes in multiple colors)
It keeps you warm on those cool summer night but light enough to wear as a coverup at the beach or on the boat
I love the bright patterns on the HIHO kurtas

And we can't forget the guys!

Please note: I was given two tops to review. All opinions and words are my own.
