Festi-Fashionable

Oh joy! As I logged online today I was greeted with the most exciting news from Coutorture.com! H&M is launching a new summer collection specifically aimed towards hippie, concert lovers… aka my favorite group of friends. With Pitchfork, Lollapalooza and ACL in my festival future, there is no way I won’t be hitting my local H&M to find my summer-music staple items this year.

The best part? The geniuses at H&M have also thrown in a collection of camping items including, sleeping bags, totes and a leopard print tent! While I won’t be camping out for shows this season… I’m sorry, I like showering too much… I can guarantee that these items are sure to make yours the swankiest campsite around. Ahh, summer here I come… is that Freebird I hear?

Give me a V, dot the I…

Swoon Alert: Jay Adoni and David Giordano, please adopt me. These brilliant gentleman are the brains behind my absolute FAVE shoe line, Pour La Victoire. Their shoes are fabulous and spot-on trend, but the best part is they’re affordable... at least for the most part. I admittedly prefer to buy them at Neiman’s Last Call. What can I say? I’m a broke journalist.

These platform bootie stunners just look lonely without my feet in them… and I have a nice, cozy, warm closet just waiting to be their new home.  Check out Coutorture.com to see the rest of the collection: Coutorture.

No shoes, no problem!

Now anyone who knows me knows unless I’m on a beach, there are shoes on my feet… and usually a pair of heels. However, I can’t help but want to run around barefoot today in support of TOMS One Day Without Shoes event.

Today, April 8, over 70,000 people around the world will be shunning their shoes to raise awareness and support for the TOMS one-for-0ne campaign which works to put shoes on the feet of needy children all over the world.

TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie started the shoe-less movement to remind people everywhere of the difference one pair of shoes can make in a child’s life, saying “I think sometimes we forget all that we have, and occasionally we should remind ourselves.”

So today I’m saying no shoes, no problem. Now shirts on the other hand…

How am I supposed to think about school work when Proenza Schouler and friends keep giving me beautiful clothes to think about? I think this tank is exactly what I need for my summer music festival wardrobe…. hint, hint mom.

All work and no play….

…makes this blog tragically unattended. I’m back from Vegas and it was more than a success. We followed my basic Sin City Survival Tips and boy did we “survive” …but now it’s back to school and with less than 5 weeks until graduation I’m busier than ever! Anyone have tips for prioritizing and organizing your life? –something that I am admittedly terrible at. One thing that does help me keep my life from imploding is this fab agenda. Originally the “Mom Agenda” they have recently come out with a version for us non-maternal individuals that’s equally as genius. With plenty of room for both class work and personal to-do lists this is the only planner that is big enough to keep the life of this journalism student/publicist/blogger/sorority girl/intern in order… well as orderly as can be expected
