"She wore an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini..." Does anyone else have that song burned into their memory? I remember the first time hearing that song I instantly felt compelled to go out and buy a yellow polka dot bikini - I was a pretty impressionable child. I guess the same thing holds true to this day, but within a different form of technology - the internet. Just scrolling through my Pinterest feed I see thousands of Spring style and bikini pins and can't help but feel an instant need to own it and for the items to show up in my closet (a girl can dream, right?). Above I posted some of the bikinis I've been falling in love with and looking into purchasing myself, hopefully there's one you find you like up there too!

Girl's Weekend









Fedora (similar here)  /  Sunglasses (similar here)  /  Blouse  /  Maxi Dress (similar here and loving this one and the pleats on this one)

Over a week ago, I took a VERY well needed vacation promptly insisted by my mother. Obviously, I was not about to turn down a trip to temperatures above freezing! For the most part, we kept work and technology to a minimum on this trip, and instead spent most of our time embracing the outdoors (which was totally fine by me, have you seen how green it is down there?). However; on our last day my sister insisted I photograph at least one outfit, which brings me here! I have actually worn this outfit previously in this past fall, and who says you can't wear it again in April? Don't ever be afraid to recycle an outfit or take a well-needed break, I know I'm not!

Travel Wear
















Just recently (as in around a couple hours ago!) I received word that my mother, sister, and I were going to be taking a girls weekend trip! You couldn't even imagine how happy I was to know I'd be getting out of this swirling bi-polar vortex! One of first thoughts I had being a fashion blogger was that I needed to get my wardrobe in check, especially for the flight out which always seems to be the hardest look for me to master (I usually wake up late and roll out of bed in whatever I'm wearing, don't shake your head at me I assume you've tried it too!). But this time I've promised myself it will be different as I think I may have the look down to a science: LAYERS! The more, the better. As you'll see above, I found many looks with just that concept in mind; the layers usually consist of a scarf, some kind of cardigan, a jacket, comfortable shoes (I don't think I could run around the airport in heels knowing how I have a habit of being late!), and small, simple accessories to bring the whole look together. Sounds do-able, right?
