wish wednesday [twenty-seven]

good morning lovelies. today marks yet another wish wednesday for me and that always puts a smile on my face. i love being able to share with all of you the various items i may be lusting for on that particular day. and today is no exception! with my sanibel trip less than a week away my mind is on fun in the sun, so this week i am all about pretty floral dresses.

one two three four
with summer in full bloom in miami these dresses would be great for any time of the day or night. 
are all of you able to get away with strapless dresses yet, 
or has the summer heat not made it to you yet?

and remember to link up your wish wednesday post!

books

one of my absolute favorite things to do is read. it transports me to a world of fiction where anything is possible. reading has always been one of my favorite hobbies and i can't wait for school to be over so i can dive into a new pile of books. i know some of you are big kindle and ebook readers but to me nothing beats the feel of a book in your hands. plus i read every book with a highlighter in hand.

when i saw these pictures it left me wanting a book in my hands with an entire day of reading ahead of me. or an amazing library in my home. and trust me when i do finally own a home there will be a magnificent library.



any other avid readers out there? i would love some book suggestions too...

rings

lately i have been adding rings to my daily nine to five wardrobe. i love wearing rings on the weekends but i couldn't really fit them in to my formal work attire. i have started to expand the jewelry i wear to work and with that rings! but i always wonder how many rings is too much? and which fingers should i wear rings on?

i for one love wearing rings on my middle finger. i love how it makes them look centered and since i have small fingers i can never really find rings that fit on my ring finger. lately i have seen rings on multiple fingers and i kind of like it too.

what fingers do you like to wear rings on? 
and how many rings do you normally wear at once?

wish wednesday [twenty-six]

happy wednesday lovelies. i am so very happy today! i have had two great days at work and they have left me feeling quite good. don't you just love getting praise for hard work? i am really starting to feel like i am getting a strong grasp on my new job and i couldn't be happier.

even though it is still two weeks away i can't get my sanibel trip out of my mind. i plan out outfits to pack in my head all day long. we are going to be going to the beach often but we are also going to rent some bikes, go to some local museums, shop some outlets and EAT!

i can't stop thinking of bold patterns and prints! with some fun earrings and maybe even a killer tan : ) i am so very excited that this wednesday all i am wishing for is prints!

love for SATC

so this weekend i spent watching season one and two of sex and the city. when it originally aired i was still bouncing back and forth between my mom and my dads house which meant that i could not always watch every episode. i have always adored the amazing fashion, the friendship and of course the love affair between carrie and mr. big!

so this morning as i get ready for meetings and quarterly reviews, i much rather be watching season three of SATC, but instead i leave you all with some cute pictures : )






are there any shows you wish were still on television?

eating high

a few weeks ago i found the amazing site for dinner in the sky from a cup of jo and recently thought about how i really really really want to do this! i think it is seriously fantastic. i can only imagine having my closest family and friends hoisted high up in the air for dinner. talk about a memorable dinner party. and they even have weddings in the sky! wow...now that is a wedding that no one will ever forget.



ok so seriously isn't this the most amazing 
thing you have ever seen?! 

what are your thoughts, is it just me?

11.4.11

hearts

wish wednesday [twenty-four]







today i am lusting for these lovelies. i think this outfit combo is perfect for a nice day out in the sun. i might even pack this for my sanibel trip. i am loving high wasted shorts lately and have a blue pair i must wear soon. these platforms are also similar to some i got last weekend which are just fabulous and very comfortable.


i'm so interested to know how many readers out there are living in places where it is still too cold to wear shorts or crop tops?

mango



i recently found these adorable bangles and had to share them with all of you. if you haven't heard of mango tree bangles then you need to check them out. the story of how these bold bangles came to be is quite cute. back in 2004 helen and david met in india, fell in love and the rest is history. these bangles are made from organic mango trees that can no longer bear fruit. each bangle is uniquely painted, offering over 50 colors and 3 styles (slim, samba & bold).



which color is your favorite?

swirls

hello everyone and happy monday. so this weekend was pretty great in that perfect relaxing way. 

on friday i went to see disney on ice and it was truly amazing! it was by far the best one i've seen so far. then i spent the rest of the day shopping with my mom. i got some great things and even some sunnies and a hat for my trip in may : ) friday night the bf and i had sushi and then went to a wine bar, which was the perfect way to end the night.

saturday i spent some more time with my mom and then had a perfectly relaxing day spent in bed watching movies with the bf.

sunday the bf surprised me by cleaning the house while i was washing clothes and then we headed to the movies to see the source code. i was pretty entertained. we got some groceries later and i got ready for the week while he watched the heat game. then we caught up on some new shows like camelot and the borgias. i am pretty excited to see them develop.


this is a quick shot of the shirt i'm wearing today, which i'm pretty in love with. my mom gave me a bunch of her tops and skirts and i'm excited to mix them in with some of my favorite items.


what was your weekend like??


ps: want to guest post on life spelled jen? i'm going on vacation in may so please let me know (lifespelledjen@gmail.com)
