Vacation

Vacation



Heading South to the Florida Keys on Thursday for some much needed R&R.


When planning our vacation I had three rules-


1. No sightseeing
2. No agenda
3. No fancy clothes


I truly want to veg, read at least two books and drink lots of beverages that have umbrellas in them!
That is it, nothing else!


I am packing very light, at least I’m going to try.
This is a very difficult task for me.


I got this bikini at Old Navy over the weekend.
It was $20! No lie.
It is a bright orange with gold rings and I love it, who needs to spend $200 on a bikini?


Add a couple sundresses, sunglasses and a hat and I’m out the door.


I bought the anchor necklace the other day and I love it.
Shhh, don’t tell my mom but I’ve always wanted a small anchor tattoo (I spent a lot of my childhood on a boat if you are wondering the significance).
This will have to do the job.


Happy Monday, so thrilled about my three day work week!
XOXO,

I can’t wait…..



What to Pack…..

What to Pack.....
My cousin is heading to Costa Rica next week and I told her I would help her shop and pack.
I put together a few things that you can mix and match in order to get a bunch of different looks without packing a ton. I have to admit I am a terrible packer but if you plan ahead and lay it all out it will help!

1. Evening wear- Resort Casual, mix it up with shoes and jewelry. This JOIE jumper is so cute!
(Rebecca Taylor, Joie, Velvet)

2. Day wear- I love a denim shirt, they are great to throw in your purse or beach back, use it as a jacket or coverup as the sun goes down. Pair it with a cute pair of white shorts, hat and a wedge and you are good for a great excursion! Love the K. Jacques sandals- I promise you will wear them out! (J. Brand, J.Crew, K.Jacques)

3. I love Missoni and I especially love their bathing suits! This cover up is great because it is sheer and you still look sassy without feeling completely covered up. (Missoni, Michael Kors)

4. A definite is a pair of white jeans- you can wear these with a great top for dinner or with a tank for daytime! A must!! (Old Navy, Spendid, Kate Spade)

-These three pairs of shoes should do the trick for all of the outfits!
-Add a great clutch and you are good to go!

Happy Shopping!

CHEAP CHICk

Yup, it’s true-today I was a cheap chic! And it was so fun…
I went to Old Navy to load up on Spring Break gear for my children and went a little overboard! 
All of these pieces came from OLD NAVY
Today I'm a CHEAP CHICK!
I fell in love with these white linen flare pants, nautical tee and great cocktail ring and who doesn’t want a YELLOW POLKA DOT bikini???
The gauzy linen shorts will work great for my constant trips to the ball park along with these comfortable flip flops. My girlfriends always crack up at my definition of BALLPARK SHOES!!! 
(They are not always the most practical but hey, they are cute! And a short girl needs some height!!)

I know places like Target and Old Navy are always hit or miss but if you add some great designer pieces each season you can always fill in with VERY affordable tanks etc. and NO ONE will ever know the difference!
(I always buy my super trendy pieces cheap)
