All About The Ears

As I promised in my last post, this post is all about The Fairy Godsisters! I was lucky enough to find The Fairy Godsisters in their earliest stages. Megan and Erin make some of the prettiest, and most unique ears in the game.

Let’s start off with some general facts about this awesome etsy. First off, this is a family business. Megan and Erin are sisters in law and the cutest BFFs! You can really tell that there is so much love in every headband they make. If quality is a concern for you, have no fear. These ears are sewn together beautifully, and made with high quality products. The ears are stuffed, as opposed to the flatter unstuffed ears many shops make. This honestly made them look so much more, “finished.”

Finally, let’s talk about comfort. Something that is not often taken into consideration when it comes to park ears is comfort. When there are already so many factors that could take away from your comfort levels in play, the last thing you need is an uncomfortable headband squeezing behind your ears. The Fairy Godsisters must have sprinkled magical fairy comfort dust onto their ears, because both pairs were super comfortable. I didn’t have to take a single break all day!!

If all of this wasn’t enough to convince you that these ears are awesome, they’re just down right adorable! The Lilly print  I loved for obvious reasons, but the Briar Rose really took me by surprise. The big tulle bow was such a unique and beautiful touch!

I paired the Lilly ears with a hot pink crop top from Nordstrom Rack, and mint shorts from J. Crew. This cute color combo matched the print perfectly, and was super comfortable!

I took a girlier approach when I was Styling the Briar Rose pair, and really took a cue from Aurora. This sweet bow back dress from Macy’s was a steal at under $20, and looked great!

Disneyland

I am so excited to tell you guys all about LA, starting with… DISNEYLAND!

Although my heart belongs to Walt Disney World, getting to venture into the original Disneyland was seriously amazing! My Uncle met my mom and I for the weekend, despite having a broken foot. What a trooper! The California hills were not so magical when we had to push his wheelchair up hills, but it was totally worth it for all of the amazing rides, like Hyperspace Mountain and the Storybook Land Canal.

It was an exceptionally hot day, so I opted for this adorable t shirt dress from Nordstrom Rack. It was cool and comfy, and really allowed my ears to shine.

Speaking of ears, these ears from The Fairy God-sisters are soooooo adorable! I actually couldn’t decide which pair was my favorite, so I took both the Briar Rose and Lilly Pulitzer! Now these ears aren’t just adorable, they are super comfortable too. I didn’t have to take a single break from them all day!

I will be doing a whole post about how I style them for a day in the parks, but for now be sure to check out The Fairy God-sisters on Etsy and Instagram!

My Thoughts On Easter

Hello everyone! I have been on temporary hiatus, because let’s be honest, sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day! Between traveling, auditions, rehearsals and shows I have not been able to make blogging a priority! Be on the lookout for some life updates coming soon, but for now, enjoy this little post about Easter!

IMG_9354

Easter is one of my favorite holidays, second only to Christmas. Besides the religious connotations, which are very important to me, Easter is all about renewal. There is something about it that serves as a reminder that every morning we wake up and are in charge of who we will be. The possibilities are truly endless!

IMG_9326

Another thing I love about Easter, is that it is the holiday of florals! This year I wore this gorgeous Lilly Pulitzer dress that I scored during last summers after party sale. The pink flowers are so beautiful and springy!

I hope that you all had a lovely and relaxing Easter!

Wynwood Food Tour!

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in a Miami Culinary Tour of the Wynwood area! For those of you not from South Florida, (or those who like me seldom venture out of their little neighborhood) Wynwood is the hip and artsy section of town. Pretty much every wall is covered in phenomenal street art, and it boasts a young and very cool vibe. I even read an article that called Wynwood a, “Hipster’s Paradise.” Although I would not categorize myself as a hipster, I love art and new experiences, so I was very excited to explore the area! The group I was a part of was asked to meet at the iconic Wynwood Walls, where we met our fabulous tour guide. She gave us a general idea of what we would be eating, as well as a brief but interesting, history of the Wynwood area.

IMG_3342

Our first stop was Wynwood Kitchen and Bar, where we got to try a sampling of some yummy Miami comfort food, which included an empanda, sweet plantains with queso fresco, and a tequeno, which is basically the Venezuelan version of a mozzarella stick! What’s not to love about that?!

IMG_3364

On the way to our next stop, which was RHouse, we learned some more about the amazing art in the Wynwood area, and got to take a peak at the Wynwood Walls. Although I was sad to have to walk away from all of the beautiful walls, I was quickly soothed by the spread that RHouse had waiting for us. There was a yummy Tuna Tartar, and the most delicious slider ever!

IMG_3379

After this, we ventured onward to Pride and Joy. Don’t come into this place expecting anything fancy! This was a very relaxed environment, and on top of some amazing pulled pork, they had some of my favorite oldies playing, which was a nice bonus!

IMG_3382

After this, we ventured to the opposite end of the food spectrum: Ceviche, which is one of my all time favorite foods, and SuViche did not disappoint! It was an adorable little spot, and their classic ceviche lived up to my very picky pallet! From the moment we left this spot, I’ve been dreaming about returning to try some different varieties!

IMG_3396

Although it was difficult to pull myself away from ceviche paradise, our next stop was by far the most adorable stop on this tour! Made in Italy is such an adorable place to sit down for a snack. Although my palate wasn’t quite sophisticated enough for truffle cheese, the presentation was adorable, and the overall atmosphere was absolutely charming!

IMG_3416

After this darling stop, we headed out to Fireman Derek’s Key Lime Pies, which was sadly our last stop. The tour ended on a sweet note with none other than Derek’s famous Key Lime pie! It was such a yummy treat, and the perfect desert for a sweltering Miami afternoon.

IMG_3427

Overall, this was an excellent tour! Whether you are local, or visiting Miami, this is a fabulous way to see the city in a new way, try a variety of local foods, and meet interesting new people!

Lilly Pulitzer All Nighter Shorts!

Even though I’ve been sick for a couple of days, I’ve been soaking up every last bit of summer, and one of my favorite ways to do that is by wearing some fab Lilly shorts! Some of you might remember these fun shorts from my Instagram post (@MsVictoriaAR) celebrating my last day of being a teenager. These shorts were just crying out to be paired with confetti!

All Nighter5

I had been nervous to buy a pair of Lilly shorts because I wasn’t sure how they would fit, or which model I would like. During the After Party Sale however, I finally took a leap of faith and got two pairs of buttercup shorts!

All Nighter1

The first ones I got were in Pink Colony (be on the lookout for a post about those very soon!) and I actually hadn’t seen this pair my first time around. My mom and I had decided to divide and conquer, and she asked me if I had seen, “the flamingo shorts.” I was confused, since she knew that I had bought another pair, but when she sent me a screenshot, I was ecstatic! I love the print, “All Nighter,” and actually preferred it in a pair of shorts rather than the shift since it is a larger pattern.

All Nighter4

I paired these happy little shorts with my breezy and comfy yellow H&M tank, Jacks, and this absolutely adorable Kendra Scott necklace!!

Fun Lilly Finds!

To a preppy girl, summer means one thing: LILLY! I’ve already talked about my love of Lilly, but now it’s time to talk about where all that Lilly comes from. My first Lilly purchase was during the After Party sale! I woke up early and was able to snag an adorable shift.

LillyTop3

Although I adore the After Party sale, it’s hard for me to wait six months between Lilly splurges. I considered buying some full priced items, but it just isn’t in my budget to spend that much money on clothes that are pretty casual. When I made my first visit to T.J Maxx, I found an adorable Lilly case and a vineyard vines belt. They were each only five dollars!

LillyTop1

From that moment, I was hooked! Although there are always great deals, my latest find at TJ Maxx takes the cake! I happened to find this cute strapless top in the clearance section for (wait for it…) TWELVE DOLLARS. I had sticker shock in the best was possible!

LillyTop5

I wore this fun little number with jeans to the Premios Juventud and my nude Vince Camuto pumps, which were a steel at just under thirty bucks! For a nice brunch, I would pair this top with white jeans, wedges, and my beautiful baby pink Kate Spade bag.

LillyTop4

Another fun way to style this top for a more casual look, like sightseeing (or shopping the After Party sale!!) is by throwing your hair up into a braided ponytail, and pairing it with white shorts and a pair of Jacks!

Bonita Beach

Recently I’ve been working on my time management and trying to get my posts together on time. I know it was quite a few weeks ago, but I’m going to be blogging about my wonderful Memorial Day getaway! I spent my long weekend at the, “bonita,” Bonita Beach!

Bonita1

One of the exciting activities we did was go on a dolphin sighting day cruise! It was an amazing experience as dolphins are my favorite animal. For this part of our adventure, I wore a denim shorts outfit with my wonderful Sperrys!

bonita3

We then spend most of the remaining time at the beach. I was so excited to finally get to wear my Lilly for Target bikini in “Fan Dance.” I was in my Vineyard Vines baseball cap basically the whole weekend!

bonita4

Finally, we got to enjoy the astonishing sunset. For this, I wore another one of my favorite comfy poplin dresses from Old Navy! After watching the sunset, I could see why they called this beach, “bonita,” which is Spanish for beautiful!

Sweet Summer Surprises!

Sunday was the first day of summer which is of course, National Wear your Lilly Day! In honor of the third best day of the year (Christmas, Easter, my birthday.. Well it’s up there!) I decided to do a post all about my love of Lilly. I found out about Lilly Pulitzer a few years ago, and was automatically the brand’s, “Biggest Fan!” My, “First Impression,” of Lilly was that it was my very being personified into a clothing line. The bright colors and patterns bring so much joy into my life, and I can’t help but feel beautiful in them!

My Fans1

There are few things in life more exciting than a new Lilly dress! While some people do crossword puzzles or play Sudoku, I keep my mind sharp by looking for cute hidden animals in all of the prints, and of course, trying to, “Find The Lilly.”

My Fans3

Now onto this specific dress. If you know anything about the Lilly for Target colab, you know how quickly these items flew, and how so many people were selling items for triple their value online. This sweet shift in, “My Fans,” was an online exclusive that I thought had evaded me, since by the time I woke up at 6 am, everything in my size was sold out. I snagged a few pieces at my local Target, and was content with my finds. You can imagine my surprise when last week, about 2 months after Pink Sunday, my mom had this shift in a size 2 in pristine condition hanging on my closet!

My Fans4

Before you ask, no, she didn’t pay a ridiculous amount of money for it. It was returned to Target by some wonderful lady who it didn’t work for! Thank you for returning it so that I could find my favorite piece from the line! So don’t give up if you haven’t found your dream item yet. There’s still hope! What was your favorite item from the Lilly For Target colab? -PS
