Instagram Round Up

Hi everyone!  I have been posting a ton of brights to my Instagram lately and I thought I would share them along with the details on here.  I hope your Spring is off to a great start!  Enjoy!

This look was taken on the first day I didn't have to wear to a coat outside!  That, unfortunately, didn't last very long as it snowed yesterday but I really enjoyed this outfit.

If you know me, you know I NEED tea multiple times throughout the day.  I captured one of those moments here with my Venti Black Iced Tea - unsweeted from Starbucks!  This is one of my all time favorite Lilly Items.  The print is Let's Cha Cha for those interested.

And shocker, more Lilly!  This was what I wanted to wear the other day but I couldn't because it was 30 degrees...oh well!  Spring and Summer are coming!

Beach Vacation Wishlist and Essentials

Spring is not happening here so I am left to daydream about summer and my honeymoon.  I know a lot of you have Spring Break currently or are heading somewhere beach-y very soon.  This inspired me to compile some pretties that are on my list and I know I will need for a warm trip!  Hope you all enjoy!

1 and 2 : When I'm on vacation, I like to go out to dinner.  So, a cute, easy dress is the perfect option.  I always love my Lilly so I added these two pretties which would be easy to throw on with a necklace, bangles and wedges for an adorable look!  A bonus, these colors will totally bring out your tan!

3: Flow-y tank tops became my thing last summer and I can't wait to grow my collection this year!  They are super flattering and look cute with shorts or skinny jeans. 

4: Jean shorts...self explanatory! A good pair are essential and I love these by J.Crew.

5: I love a good romper! They are great for packing because they are one piece and can be dressed up or down.

6: You always need a beach towel and why not have this cutie!

7, 8, and 10: All three of these items are from Personalized From Me To You!  It's no secret they are my go-to for monogrammed everything.  These three items have been on my list for a little while now and hopefully they will be mine soon!  The huge anchor beach bag will fit everything I need for the day and can be my personal bag on the plane.  The floppy hat is great to keep the sun off your face and shoulders while feeling fabulous!  And lastly...this amazing duffle (I can't decide between Navy or Pink) is perfect for your carry on bag and any weekend trips throughout the year!

9: You always need a colorful baseball cap! It blocks the sun and covers those bad hair days!

11:  This is my favorite sunscreen!  It smells delicious (like coconuts) and will not dry out or break out my sensitive skin! 

12:  You have to stay hydrated and Lilly is always a fun way to do that!

13:  This Mara Hoffman bikini is killing me!  It's beautiful but a bit pricey.  I want!

14:  This mix and match bikini with scallops is just too cute!

15: Who doesn't want one of these right now! I have this in pink and I'm debating on another one.

I also wanted to include Rah Rah Designs, they have the cutest monogrammed and bridal suits!

Spring Forward

I am so over the cold, gloomy weather and was inspired by the clock change to do a bright look!  So of course I had to incorporate some Lilly and was excited to feature my new Sandy Sea Turtle bangles.  They are so beautiful, well made and perfect for spicing up any look!  I was lucky enough to receive two, one pearl and one lavender.  I couldn't be happier with them and will be wearing them SO often!  They go perfectly with my Lulu Elsa top.  

Also, I picked up these fun pink, mirrored sunnies on Friday and had to wear them!  I hope you all enjoy and please check out the adorable Sandy Sea Turtle on Etsy and Instagram!

A HUGE thank you to Sandy Sea Turtle for the beautiful bangles!

Duffield Lane Emma Tunic: Styled and Reviewed

I want to start this post by saying this is my new favorite top and I want more, more, more from this fantastic brand, Duffield Lane!  When I received this tunic, I tried it on and was in love with the perfect fit and fantastic quality.  It is a thick, stretchy material which makes it so comfortable and yet you still look polished.  I will be wearing this all seasons in so many different ways, I can't wait until the snow stops and it warms up so I can post some of my ideas!

As you can see in the photos below, it's fitted but in the right places and it's the perfect length so that in leggings, or as a beach cover up, your bum is covered (ladies, we know how key that is)!  I see myself wearing this with white skinny jeans and wedges in the spring and summer for dinner.  Or with jean, boyfriend shorts on summer Saturdays; also, over a bathing suit at the beach.  Adding pops of color with it, like pink or yellow, would be fun too!  Even in the fall and winter it's perfect with riding boots and leggings or skinny jeans as I styled it for this post.  

Moral of the have to check out Duffield Lane!  You won't be disappointed!

Thank you so much, Duffield Lane, for sending me the Emma Tunic!  I have found a new favorite!
