Lookbook: Loving My iPad

Getting back from a long international trip is rough but getting back and having a cold on top of it is super rough!  I was feeling terrible but am finally getting better.  Good thing I took a lot of lookbooks before all my trips (I was in Jamaica before I went to China and Taiwan so I've been gone a really long time!) otherwise you'd have a lot of sickly, no make up, sitting in my jammies lookbooks and that's not so pretty ;)

I had my iPad with me that day which is what I'm holding.  I got a quilted leather case for it which is great for traveling but my one complaint is that it doesn't hold it very tightly so it kinda slips around when I'm trying to use it.  It does it's job though so I'm keeping it until I find something I have to have.  And then when I was in China, I got a new very pretty but very impractical case!!  I love bling!  I couldn't resist :) And of course my iPhone got new covers as well.  Can't leave them out you know? haha!  I didn't really care when the iPad came out but once I played on my parents' iPad (we got them the first generation one for them last Christmas) I thought it was pretty neat and then when iPad 2 came out I decided I NEEDED it.  I still don't think it's super necessary but I LOVE it.  I didn't bring my laptop with me on my trip, just my iPad and it served it's purpose just fine and was so much lighter than carrying my MacBook Pro with me.  One of my favorite things is reading magazine on my iPad!  I need to change all my subscriptions to digital subscriptions because I often have piles and piles of magazines just sitting around waiting to be read and it takes up so much room!  What about you?  have you given into the iPad craze yet?  What are your favorite apps?

I got mine awhile ago so I can't find anything similar but I love the color of this plaid cardi. This look could be done with different patterns and textures as well like with this crochet cardigan would be really pretty. You could also do stripes on stripes with this cardigan (which, btw, Patterson J Kincaid for $59! A really good deal!)

You can't really go wrong with a striped tank! I own so many but I keep on buying more. How cute is this Kate Spade bow striped tank? Love this stripe ruffle tank too! The color of this heather gray/blue stripe tank and it's on sale for $19.90!

I love skirts like these.  I like to wear them high waisted like I did here or something I roll down the waistband and wear it like a mini underneath flowy tops.  They are just so versatile!  Also, check out this adorable MICHAEL Michael Kors Tiered Ruffle Skirt, on sale for $58.90!

Mine are from a few years ago but I still get lots of emails about them!  I understand though, they are one of my favorite shoes that I own.  L.A.M.B. is one of the non "high end designer" brands that I love.  Their prices aren't super cheap but are great compared to designer brands and the quality is fantastic.  I do admit though, that the heel height of L.A.M.B. shoes are quite high!  Gwen Stefani likes them tall!  I am so in love with the L.A.M.B. Crepe which are now on sale.  I'm on the hunt for my size!  The L.A.M.B. Kam are kinda similar to mine and they are on sale!

  7. @Anonymous thanks! The two with the embellishments are from J Crew and the chain is from Michael's (a craft store) that I turned into a necklace and just layered the 3 together.

  17. @Katiehaha! it's definitely a good reason though! the digital versions are really neat, they link you to videos and extras that you don't get in the regular magazines.

  18. @Anonymous oh good! I'm glad you like them. I'm still not on the instagram bandwagon but I may have to join! I will check out your other suggestions.

    I'm not sure how you can get the cases. I haven't seen them sold here. If you email me, maybe next time I'm in Asia (which will probably be sometime within the year) I might be able to pick one up for you!

  19. I <3 my iPad but since I share it with my boyfriend... he uses it a lot more than I do. Makes me want to buy one just for myself!

    My favorite app is FlipBoard - which basically concatenates all your blogs/RSS Feeds into magazine styled pages! Its really easy to use and it's really pretty. Do you have that as well?

  20. @Meisha.Style yes! I was thinking this would be a cute work outfit too! I'd just swap the heels for regular pumps.

  21. @cryskay thanks girl! I missed you! hopefully will have photos up from my trips next week.

  22. @Ashley ha! I think I use it more than my husband but he's getting his own because I don't feel like sharing. lol! I just got flipboard from recommendation from a reader and I love it! thanks for sharing!

  24. I'm reading your blog on my iPad now! I agree with you that it isn't necessary but it's fun and much more portable than a laptop. I love laying in bed and catching up on my blogs. If you haven't downloaded it already, the net-a-porter magazine app is my absolute favorite!!!

  25. Cute ipad cover! I like how it's sophisticated and classic rather than overly cutesy like a lot of them. I've always wondered though why does Apple stuff get so many accessories and other brands don't?

  26. I'm looking for a cute and practical iPad case. I wasn't sure when/if I'd get the iPad2 when we were in HK earlier this year. They had soooo many freaking cute, blinged out, 3D charms iPad and iPhone covers. Nothing for my iTouch3G (so last year) nor for my Android. :(
    Now I have the iPad2 and need a good cover! I got a plastic Hello Kitty one that someone broke the first time they tried to remove it. What a waste.
    Sorry to blab on and on. I can't wait for Taiwan this summer to get some cute covers!
