I’ve lived in NYC for 3 weeks now…yah that’s a long damn time for a small town gal like me. I’m having a love/hate relationship with this city…mainly hating all the homeless people, guys who don’t hold doors open, slow walkers, lack of a/c, smelly subway, how much walking you actually have to do to get somewhere (I walk 10 miles a day y’all..that’s a lot). I also hate how expensive everything is…like $15 for a meal and $20 for a drink. You can’t even get drunk off at $20 drink. It also baffles me that theres a guy on the street that asks me for money EVERYDAY while I walk to work as he smokes a cigarette. I swear one day I’m going to lose it on him and tell him “If you can afford to smoke a cigarette than you don’t need my money” or something like that. I have this sh*t planned out y’all. Not to mention the hotel prices are outrageous…trying to find a semi decent hotel for Matt and I when he comes to visit and the prices are $300 and up for something just okay. Oh and where I live…don’t even get me started on that!

What I LOVE though (I know it’s shocking I could love something…) is the amount of exploring I get to do and how many endless options of things there are to do in the city. A lot of things are pretty convenient for the most part or so I think they are from where I’m living. Plus, there’s fun things and events going on ALL the time and even though the food is expensive and so are the drinks…there are so many cool restaurants to go to. Next to where I’m working there is a Bite Beauty Bar and you can make your own lipstick! I’m literally doing it next week. Y’all know how much I love my lipstick! AND there’s a Birchbox Store where you can make your own Birchbox…like what!

I have my ups and downs with the city though. I don’t hate it but I don’t love it. I think I just like it and am trying to embrace the opportunity that I was given to come live here for 4 months. But boy do I miss Alabama more than anything in this world and I’m so excited to go back there tonight for a weekend trip. It’s been so weird for me knowing that I’ll never be a college student ever again. It’s sad…people aren’t kidding when they say it goes by quickly! I never thought I’d admit to missing Alabama more than I miss home but I miss Alabama a hell of a lot. People in NYC don’t have manners like they do in Alabama…and on that note I will end my rant!

Hope everyone has a great weekend…oh and ROLL TIDE!

You can only get 25% off until Saturday. That gives you 4 days to call, email or go into the store and purchase what you like if you use the code “Sassy Wednesday“!

That being said….I’m swooning over this ENTIRE look. I know, I know…I say that all the time but I actually am really in love. If you know me I’m a sucker for a comfy dress so I couldn’t resist this gorgeous T-Bags one with the tassels to match with my favorite Southern Sequins tassel earrings! Now on to the Annabel Ingall bag…THIS color y’all! You saw last weeks bag here in pink but this blue. I think I’m actually going to have to get this bad boy! Paired with a great pair of Cocobelle sandals making this the PERFECT summer outfit!

I snagged this adorable banana leaf romper for $25 from Old Navy a few weeks ago. It also comes in an orange, pink and black pattern and it took me a good bit to decide what color combo I wanted to get! Banana leafs and palms are trending big time in the fashion world this summer if you haven’t noticed yet. I’ve seen the pattern on purses, pants and even finger nails.

What’s your favorite trend going on right now? I hope everyone had a great weekend!

In honor of National Wear Your Lilly Day tomorrow aka the first day of summer, I figured I’d share with y’all this adorable Lilly Pulitzer romper. It’s no secret that I’m a Lilly Pulitzer lover…I was born and raised in Florida….an hour from Lilly’s home! I’ve been wearing Lilly Pulitzer for as long as I can remember. My Mom still has all of the vintage dresses that were hers from the 80’s and my dresses from when I was a little girl. Not to mention my bedroom growing up was Lilly Pulitzer too!

Enjoy your weekend and don’t forget to wear Lilly Pulitzer tomorrow 🙂
