In a Tizzy. {In Photos}

This month has gone whizzing by, and I have hardly had time to just sit for one second – literally. Starting a new job at Nordstrom has been so much fun (really), but I hardly have time for anything anymore. My days consist of 10+ hour work days, coming home, + crashing right to sleep. So when I had the opportunity to head back to college for my first Homecoming weekend as an alumni, I quickly got off the weekend from work + made the trip down. Here’s a few snapshots from last week + recapping the weekend via RetroCam on my phone (I don’t have the iPhone yet — just a few more days!) It was so fun to get away and visit with old friends, eat at some favorite spots, and pretend to be a college girl again – that is, with nothing to worry about.

New afternoon pick me up favorite – McDonald’s Pineapple/Mango Smoothie made with low fat Yogurt!

Apple Picking in New England.
Lyman Orchards – apple picking.
Some of my favorites – almond butter + apple and magazines.
New J. Crew purchases: Floral taffeta skirt (capri, dress) + linked necklace
Gifted Tortoise + Blonde frames
Outfit Snapshot: c/o Gianetta blouse, gifted La Mer watch via Lucky FABB, H&M fur stole + green pants.

Celebrating a girlfriends birthday – cookies + cream cupcake!
Outside lunch at a favorite hot spot with boyfriend in our college town – fresh sangria made special to order for us! 🙂

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for my special post honoring Breast Cancer Awareness month + a yummy giveaway!

    Okay, I love that outfit shot so much. You look adorable in glasses and the leopard-fur combo is gorgeous!

    P.S. I don’t have an iPhone either; I got my very first smartphone (I know, right?) before IFB Con, the Samsung Galaxy, and I’m too in love with it to make the switch. I’ll just have to wait for Instagram to make its way to Android.

    I love these types of posts! They’re like a little bit of insight into a blogger’s everyday life 🙂
    And congrats on the job! I know that you’re crazy busy right now but I like the fact that you still make time for the most important things in life… like cupcakes, weekend getaways and super stylish clothes 🙂
