Spring Sneakers

As much as I’d like to think that my life will slow down with the arrival of spring and the start of summer, I know that in reality, it won’t. My visions of free-time and couch lounging are simply a dream. My summer schedule is already bursting with activity and my planner once again served as a wake up call. Frankly, seeing it all in writing kind of scares me. I know summer will be over with the wink of an eye and I simply don’t want to blink. Spring, however is the best excuse to kick back and relax in a pair of great sneakers. These snappy sneaks will become a spring/ summer staple for me.

Keds have been around for forever, I even remember wearing Keds when I was I was just a little tot! These Keds are truly perfect for all your spring and summer outings and are the perfect spin on the original Keds. The bright, bold patterns (let’s be honest) make the shoe and fun is sure to follow.

In all honestly, I am head over heels in love with all of the above pairs. Currently, I own a pair of pink vans I bought back in my freshie days. I love my pink vans but they needed a bit of a face lift this year after three years of wear and tear. A really cute way to add a spin on a typical shoe is to replace the shoelaces with ribbon! Here’s how mine turned out. 

I used gold ribbon and they ended up adorable! Tip: Burn the end of the ribbon so it doesn't fray easily.

What are your go to summer shoes?

You're in Charge!

I can only day dream about the summer nights where I plan to stay out with friends sitting at bonfires and roasting marshmallows and chatting up all night. Until those nights become a reality, the only thing we can do is to prepare for them!

These new phone chargers seem to be everywhere lately, and I finally got my hands on one. These must have accessories are going to be beyond perfect to for those late summer nights where you outlast your phone. They are small enough to fit in the tiniest of clutches. I own the J. Crew version but the Lilly one’s are also perfect  and do the same thing. I let my phone completely die and using the battery, I got it back up to 42%.

Seriously, if you need something to splurge on, I high recommend these!

And the patterns make them so much more fun! I have an older one from j. crew with anchors on it and I keep it charged and with me at all times. It truly is a lifesaver.

What items are going to be your lifelines summer?

Pep Talk

Okay, so you know how the last full week before Christmas break or spring break always seems to lasts the longest? Well I’m in that week. This week of course I’m slammed with homework, tests, practice, and 3 games.

Longest. week. of. my. life.

I can almost taste spring break. It’s so close, yet so far. I am going to have find some hidden motivation in order to make it through. In the mean time, this pep talk by kid president is probably the best inspiration for a long week. And probably my all time favorite youtube video. Seriously, if you have an extra 3:28 seconds and need a little boost this video is definitely not a waste of time.

There are honestly too many quotes to pick out from this video that are the epitome of perfect but this one is in my top 10.
