What's Ticklin' My Fancy This Friday

Hey there,

In the attempt to get back into the swing of blogging yet again, I just thought I'd share a few things are particularly ticklin' my fancy this fine Friday. I spent most of the day at the pool with pals, and I must admit as bad as it is for you- I love that tight feeling your skin has when you've been out in the sun all day.

Speaking of laying by the pool all day, Asos is definitely killin' it with their DD+ swimwear (look for a future post about this struggle)- I love this hot pink top:

and I've loved the Jcrew Panama Hats forever,but I've never been able to convince myself I'd wear it that much so I've never made the purchase. However, the Factory Panama Hat might just be the thing for me considering it's currently on sale :)

Fancy + Fancy = OMG. 
I was in a wedding two weeks ago and Iggy Azalea's Fancy was basically the anthem of the weekend, hell it's probably my anthem of the summer, but the MOH found this pretty darn awesome mashup of Iggy and Reba's Fancys. 

p.s. am I the only one gigglin' at the fact that fancy times two is ticklin' my fancy? Okay yeah I thought so..

Also last night I saw the midnight 10:30 premier of Fault in Our Stars. I did a post a while back about I was so excited for this movie. Okay, I must admit I ugly cried through the last hour of the book. I mean it's probably the most emotional thing I've ever read/watched on screen. However, I must admit, unlike my roommates I was a little let down. I get that there's so much that has to fit into movies, but like this Buzzfeed article points out, I feel like the movie leaves out a lot of the real struggles with cancer that the characters go through (I won't continue on here in case you haven't read the book).

Lastly, I've been spending a lot more time on tumblr lately. Don't ask me why, but this seems to happen every summer, I get sucked into the tumblr black-hole, but I'm not exactly complaining. I'm just one of those imaged based people, does that even make sensed?  I really like cool pictures, art, graphics, ect, and I think tumblr allows for that a lot more than Pinterst if you ask me. However, don't get me wrong I'm not leaving Pinterest anytime soon either (I'm just social media obsessed, let's be honest). Here on some things I've seen on tumblr that are ticklin' my fancy:

That's all for this Fancy Friday haha. I'm off to the lake with my family tomorrow!

Tunes Thursday- Summer Playlist Edition

I thought I'd share some of my summer playlists the next few Tunes Thursdays. Summer is always a time of year when I fall in love with all sorts of music- from country, to classic rock, to techno/pop/whatever you want to call it I'm constantly listening to something different.

So this week I'm sharing my country playlist. It's great for long car rides, laying by the beach/pool/ect, or really whatever tickles your fancy. In my opinion a great country playlist, especially for the summer, needs to include a mix of old songs you grew up with, new songs that are on the radio, and even a few random artist that you won't hear elsewhere. So enjoy!

Here's the full Spotify playlist as well:

Let me know if there's anything you think is missing, I love finding new music!

I hate pants. In the winter I'd much rather wear leggings and in the summer comfy dresses that I can just throw-on are my favorite. That's why I was pretty darn excited when I saw that Asos was having 25% off dresses. Here are some of my favorites that are perfect to throw on to go to the pool, dinner with friends, or wherever your summer takes you!

You Can Find Me In St. Louie

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I spent last weekend in Saint Louis! Krista and I went to visit our friend from the class we took in London and Dublin two winter breaks ago.  We even caught up with another guy who was on the trip.

It was a crazy good time! We stopped by the Anheuser Busch brewery where I met a pal (a huge Clydesdale), went to the most amazing bloody mary bar, had crazy awesome seats for the Braves-Cards game, I even rode a mechanical bull for the first time haha, and of course we has to check out the arch!

College Educated, She Graduated.

In typical Lucy fashion, I have been completely overwhelmed since graduation, and while it's no excuse it's definitely to blame for my lack of posting. However, I wanted to share a few of my graduation pictures. While this is the outfit (dress, shoes)  I wore for graduation, we actually took these pictures a few days before!

It's crazy that my time at UK has drawn to an end, but I wouldn't trade the past 4 years for anything.  It's actually hard to even put it in to words. You always hear, "you get out of something, what you put into it". College is a perfect example of that, you definitely get out of your 4 years what you put into it. From football tailgates, to basketball games (national championships for that matter), raising over $3 million FTK, falling in love (falling out of love), drunk munchin' on Mad- Mush cheese-sticks, finding your best friends, all nighters, blowing of class to go watch the ponies run- I have left this glorious campus with countless memories that bring a smile to my face as I write this.

I wish I could put into words advice that encompasses the collegiate experience, but the write words allude me. Therefore I leave you with Wear Sunscreen by Baz Luhrmann. If you have 5 minutes its' definitely some of the best advice you'll ever hear:

Grad Party Dresses

Ok, so I should really be studying for finals right now (eek, after tomorrow at noon I'll be done with college- crazy!). However, I just thought I would take a break from writing these papers and studying to do a little online shopping. My aunt is too nice and is throwing a casual graduation cocktail party for me Friday night, and in typical Lucy fashion I don't have a dress to wear yet. Yes, I'm aware I have a whole closest full of dresses it's not near as exciting if you don't wear something new! However, since I've waited until the last minute and I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for express shipping I've been looking online at Dillard's. Hopefully, once finals are over I'll have time to run out to the mall and pick from one of these cute dresses!

Ok, back to this paper comparing Aristotle and Seneca's views on friendship. I kid you not, what a typical college paper.

P.S. get excited, real pictures to come soon- you'll no longer have to deal solely with internet pictures and iPhone quality.

Tunes Thursday: That's What's Up

I love Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros. I also love their song That's What's Up, and I recently came across an amazing cover of the song. Turns out it's Lennon and Maisy from Nashville. I don't watch the show, however my boyfriend does (yes, you read that correctly). Take a listen to both versions:

How cute is this video too!?
