Summer Plans (For My Wallet) 2011 ed.

I can't believe this is the third year I've done this post! Time flies! This summer I'm trying to cut back on the crazy spending, so my plans aren't quite as lofty as they usually are. 

First, I want to get my hair colored (a la the Kim Kardashian pic above) and I am dire need of a MacBook. Second, I'd really love to take Nikki out for some Mommy/Son adventures, like the beach or aquarium. As for girly, material things, I'd like to get a new perfume (I have my nose on LIV GRN's Natural Eau De Parfum) and the Michael Kors Hamilton tote bag in Luggage with silver hardware. And last but not least, I plan on getting in some quality time with friends (preferably over delicious margaritas).

**What are your summer plans??

What To Wear: Summer Festival

Heading to a music festival this summer? Here's my take on proper Day to Night attire:

Tank, Sass & Bide
Shorts, H&M
*Bag, All Saints
Headband, swell.com
Bracelets, Miss Selfridge
Sunglasses, Dolce and Gabbana
Rain Boots, Kamik
Sweatshirt, Wildfox Couture
Skinnies, Lee

*With a roomy enough bag you can bring along a change of clothes if it gets chilly at night. I suggest a baggy sweatshirt to throw over your tank and a pair of skinny jeans to tuck into your boots.

Have Ya Joined JewelMint Yet??

I know I've already blogged about Kate Bosworth's jewelry club JewelMint, but I'm still loving it! I've been a member since March and have been 100% satisfied with my membership. For those of you who haven't joined yet and want to know what type of jewelry you can expect, here are three of my purchases:

Sweetheart Ring

This is the first piece of jewelry I ordered from the site. I think it's really unique. I love that it looks like two separate bands being held together by the heart and the little rhinestone details are so unexpected.

Versailles Earrings

I missed out on these gorgeous earrings the first time they were released, but thankfully the website brought them back last week due to popular demand. I have an all lace, cream, one-shoulder dress that was made to be paired with these earrings! 

Metal Mosaic Ring

I'm a sucker for a good statement ring. This picture doesn't really do it justice, it's truly a wearable piece of modern art. I love the drama of the squares' varying heights and how it looks handmade.

P.S. - The boxes the jewelry come in are almost as pretty as the jewelry!

**I looked around the web for a coupon code you all could use & I'm pretty sure "WELCOME50" should still work for 50% your first purchase.
