Congraduation!

It’s graduation season again (they grow up so fast!). The class of 2013 will be walking across the stage & moving on to the next chapter in life. Graduate school, high school, college, conquerors of kindergarden, we congratulate you all!

Aside from figuring out what gifts to give, what should you wear to all these celebrations? Itty Bitty has a few looks to keep you feeling & (most importantly) looking cool in the summer heat. Take a peek at these outfit ideas for the graduation ceremony & after party. Whether you’re sitting in the crowd cheering on a family member or making an appearance while the party is in full swing, you’ll be sure to look fabulous.

Tips:

-At the Ceremony: Always have a travel tissue pack on hand, you never know who or when the waterworks will hit.

-At the After Party: Disposable cameras are a great novelty. Pass it around! Let it leave your sight for a bit & see what develops.

You’ve seen our positively purdy Prom fashions, now take a gander at our Grad wear. Carson is looking classy in her cap & gown. She’s shared her high school graduation photo (in the white gown) & is showing her Appalachian State pride when she graduated from college. Kathleen picked a photo of her standing in front of Riley Art & Design Hall at the University of Notre Dame. And who could resist cap-tassel mustaches?!

Memorial Day: Bring Out The BBQ!

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and if you had a childhood like ours, it is basically the kick-off event to summer. Time to banish all those spring time sweaters and break out the flip-flops, sundresses and fire up the grill.

We love getting together with our LA friends right in our very own backyard and grilling up a tasty meal, followed by our favorite after dinner sweets! We’ve rounded up a few patriotic pieces that would be a delightful addition to any Memorial Day get together.

Spring Party Ideas: Sips & Straws

Spring is everywhere. Pastel colors are taking over and before we know it summer will be here! But while we still have the freshness that is springtime we’ve got spring parties on our minds. Nothing is more fun than dressing up in your favorite dress, perhaps donning a hat or cardigan and joining your friends for good conversation and some delicious drinks.

We’ve seen a lot of fun new drink recipes floating around and we wanted to compile them in one place to be enjoyed by many!
