top 5 spring must haves part 2

 Since we're all fans of pretty things and pretty people {am I right, or am I right?}, I have two more pretty gorgeous bloggers here today to share pretty things, i.e. their Top 5 Must Haves for Spring!
I don't know about you, but my monies are running sprinting out of my bank account this season because there are just so many things I NEED for my spring/summer wardrobe!
Shame on all those stores for taunting me with their amazing sales!
#smh {oh, hashtags in blogland}

But now, I give you the very sweet and beautiful, Meghan, and my witty IRL friend, former roommate and confidante, Callie {who shared some pretty sweet pics of us from college ;)}.


Hello lovelies! I hope you are all having a fabulous day. Please let me introduce myself -- my name is Meghan, and I blog over at Shine On. I'm a twenty-something, coffee-loving, professional sorority girl living in Music City, TN. I'm also a bit obsessed with social media, so you can find me here, or here, and here...oh, one more! It's nice to meet you!

I am thrilled to be a guest on Holly's blog today! She is a fantastic woman, and I always look forward to reading her blog each and every day. 

When Holly asked for guest bloggers, I jumped at the chance. Like I said, I love reading her blog, and I am so excited to 'meet' all of her wonderful followers. Yes, you all. I sincerely hope we can become blog buddies! That's one of my favorite things about the blogosphere -- 'meeting' and making new friends all over the place!

You'll notice a theme with these guest posts: our Top 5 Must-Haves for Spring!
I say we get right to it...

one. a pleated dress
No matter your shape or size, there is a style of dress that looks good on everyone: pleated. It can do anything from accentuate curves, to hiding a little tummy pooch, and can be as short or long, and as tight or flowy as a fashionista wants...

two. a great bag
As the weather gets nicer, and the days become longer, we're finding more time to enjoy the sun. Whether you head to the park to play a game of frisbee, or take a blanket and a good book to enjoy, you'll need to pack all of your spring necessities into a cute bag.

three. good sunblock
Us girls have to keep our skin looking fresh, so sunblock is a necessity now that the sun is out! My favorite types of sunblocks are those that have a slight tint to them - that way, I don't have to foundation. Paired with a good bronzer, mascara and chap stick (also with SPF), you're all set for a beautiful, spring day!

four. healthy smoothies
Nothing says spring and warmer temps like cool & delicious drinks. For me, these are smoothies! And while most smoothies are actually unhealthy, there are some great options out there to keep calories low, but not lose that delicious taste. This smoothie, along with a few others yummy recipes can be found at

five. bright nail polish
Yep - the brights are in, and color-blocking has taken over the fashion world. Having a polished set of nails is the perfect accessory to any outfit! My favorite brand right now? Essie. They have a great selection of colors, and the polish goes on smooth and lasts so long!
I hope you enjoyed my top five must-haves for summer! 
And I hope to see you over at my blog soon.

A big thank you to Holly for letting me guest post on this fun and springy topic!


hellooo, lovely RIS readers! let me take a hot second to introduce myself. my name's callie, and i blog over here (VERY sporadically - it's kind of embarrassing). i've been friends with holly since college (we were roommates twice!), and since she was posting old pictures recently, let me quickly share a few of my own.

here's us then...super cute. you love me with blonde hair, right? be honest. it's okay. i hate it too.

and here's us now! okay, so we were kind of a mess at the end of the crawl for cancer last year, but we're always having fun! and it was for a good cause! don't judge us...we're not sorry.

without further ado, here's my rundown of my top five must-haves for spring. and can i get an AMEN from all of ya'll who are ready for some consistent warm weather? moving on...i'm kind of indecisive, so there was no way i could pick just five things i have to have this spring. let's go with five categories instead? fabulous. glad you're with me on this one.

numero uno: opi nail polish in cajun shrimp

i love the reddish-orangish-pinkish tones in this shade! i actually have it on both my nails and toenails right now, and the bright color is so cheerful. plus, it goes with almost every color, and the shade of polish kind of seems to change based on what color you're wearing.

numero dos: kate spade everything

i'm kind of a kate spade junkie. would i normally carry a tote with hedgehogs on it? probably not, but since kate spade says it's okay, i find it adorable and irresistable (plus it's on sale). the "play hooky" bag would be a perfect travel wallet on my upcoming trip to fort lauderdale. i adore the hello sunshine notecards, because "sunshine" was my dad's nickname for me growing up, and i love sending cute snail mail notes to my friends! and speaking of besties, how adorable is that gold best friend bracelet? i'm usually a silver/white gold girl, but for some reason, yellow gold is on my radar in a major way in 2012!

numero tres: the limited's pretty spring dresses

i will be attending EIGHT weddings this year. yes, you read that correctly. EIGHT. because of that, i need lots of cute dresses to wear. duh. i've long been addicted to the limited's dress selection, but these two are at the top of my list currently. i may or may not have already bought the yellow and white one. and it may or may not be adorable.

numero cuatro: cute dressy shoes

so, confession time? i can be semi-clumsy and my boyfriend is only about an inch or two taller than me, so i need to be careful when selecting shoes. tall heels are a no-no unless i want to dwarf my boyf while also risking breaking an ankle. therefore, i love these red corked-heel wedges by kelly and katie! oh, and i'm definitely willing to walk carefully if it means i get to wear those cute nude peep-toes by bandolino. and the heel's not THAT high, right?

numero cinco: the MLB collection by victoria's secret PINK

two things you should know about me, since we're basically friends by this point. 1. i love baseball. 2. i love victoria's secret. so when VS started carrying the full collection of MLB apparel and undies, my heart skipped a beat! i can't wait to stock up on these goodies to represent my favorite team.


Aren't they the cutest?! 
And I love their spring must have picks, don't you?!
Don't all run out to the mall at once!

At least not before you enter my Stella & Dot giveaway!
OK, now you can go spend your hard earned cash away :)

Have a fabulous weekend, lover pants!
Time for this chick to indulge in a bottle {or two} of cheap wine. ;)

Essie just released a new collection that I'm dying to try! You put A white (preferably Blanc) over your base coat, and then 2 coats of one of the new colors (there is a pink, coral, red and orange) and the white under is supposed to make the color really POP and be super bright! So, I'm looking forward to trying that! I love those dresses too!!

Denise said...

I love Kate Spade, too! I have bought a very similar purse that you have pictured.

I featured it on my blog, too!

Now, I want to go shopping!

A friend at work emailed me this week and said "I have a perfect blog for you", and low and behold its a sister of Theta Nu! What are the chances with a bazillion blogs out there? Anyway, totally cute. Fun to catch up on you and Callie both at once, actually. If I figure out how to make a button one day, maybe we can swap them!
