always time for a quick "pin"

hi Hi HI, 

I know I suck terribly at blogging right now. To be honest it will be like this for probably 5 weeks. I am taking 6 credits {started grad school}, moved, am doing something super cool tomorrow {details to come!} and am totally overwhelmed. 

So since times are tight, I am a skimpy poster/blogger but an avid pinner.

Here is what I have been up to in the world of pinterest:

Check them all out here & follow my pinning adventures if you would like =)

Thanks for dealing with my during this crazy time too ;) love ya

budget crashers

A few things I am currently crushing on / pinning:
Love that outfit from a recent email from the mix of patterned shorts & lace is what I wish I was rockin' right now.

Can never have too much sequence! Pinned here. $202.00 found on the pricey but fun!

Love these Betsey Johnson floral wedges! Pinned here $90.

I WANT this sketch of "all" of the buildings in New York City. I have been stalking this for a while. Get yours here $150. Maybe my next purchase for my apartment, would go great with my Marilyn!

Love studded flats & have been looking for a pair. Pinned here found on the $162.

Love these purple ones more though... Pinned here, haven't got them yet because they are a 6.5...  but still thinking about it... $16 found on etsy through Koi-Story and her recent post Vintage Sale on School Street

These brown loafers have been on my must have for a while now. Pinned here from my sponsor Love their store shopvpv. Bought them the other week on their ebay store.

This mirrored tray will be so perfect on the coffee table {or bar} in my new apartment {pics to follow once we are settled}. Pinned here. Bought this on ebay the other week too - $4 plus $8 shipping.

Which leads me to: 

Whoops... not very successful this month...
between moving & shopping for the new place
my budget was not successful this month =(

Well here is to next month!:
