Navy or Nothing

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday!  I have such an exciting post for you today.  I had the pleasure of working with SCOUT by Bungalow for this post!  They have the most adorable bags in an array of sizes and options.  The bag I'm featuring in this look is the Club Upper which has been great for everyday use.  It can hold EVERYTHING and look cute doing it!  As an added bonus, it keeps my water cool because it's well isolated! I will be carrying it today to go shopping with my wedding party for the guys outfits! I took tons of shots so you can really examine it.  You will be seeing more of this bag and SCOUT in upcoming posts!  Hope you enjoy and as always, thank you so much for reading!

 How fun is this hot pink interior!

Anchored to the Cape

Hi everyone!  I hope your Monday is going by VERY quickly!  I'm here today with a very nautical look for you and I want to talk about a brand I recently discovered.  As most of you know, I'm from the Cape Cod area and love all things beach-y!  When I saw the brand Cape Cloth and their fun, well made Cape inspired clothing, I knew I would love it.  They are a great brand created by a local who is committed to helping others while producing wonderful products.  A dollar from every Cape Cloth purchase is donated to Cape Abilities, a wonderful organization on Cape Cod that empowers people with disabilities!  What a wonderful cause!   Below, you will see how I styled my Keelson cap which spells out CAPE in signal flags.  It's been a great Summer staple!  Please check out Cape Cloth and I hope you enjoy the post!

Thanks, Cape Cloth!

My Beach and Pool Day Needs

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a wonderful week!  I wanted to share a quick list of what I bring with me to the pool or beach.  It's going to be super hot here this weekend so I was thinking a lot of you might be headed on a beach vaca or lounging by a pool somewhere!  Most of these items are my actual favorites, but a few are things I'm dying to add to my beach bag!  I hope you all enjoy and I'll see you soon!

I had to share this gem!

My bikini: c/o Otilly (see below) / Sunnies: Amazon / Bag: c/o Lilly Pulitzer (It's SO much better in person, I'm in love with it! See below) / Flamingo: See below

My List

Flamingo Float:  As some of you know,  I bought this float a little while back to go in the pool for my bridal shower!  I now love to lounge with this adorable float who I affectionately call Freddie! 

Floppy Hat:  This floppy hat is on my wish list for my honeymoon.  It's a great way to protect your face and stay cool in the sun while looking fabulous.

Cover Up:  I've been seeing this cover up by Sundress all over Instagram and I'm obsessed with them!  It's on my list!  

Sunnies:  When I'm lounging in the sun, these Ray-Ban aviators are the best.  They really protect your eyes!

Towel:  This towel though!  Leave it to Kate Spade to create this gem!  WANT!

Cooler:  I just received this cooler from Scout in the mail and I'm already in love!  It's so much cuter than your run of the mill cooler.  They had me at anchors!  It can hold a ton and keeps all your snacks nice and cool!

Tote:  The print on this stunning Lilly Pulitzer tote is perfection.  The pinks and blues are so vibrant and it holds EVERYTHING!  Thank you so much to the Lilly Pulitzer Team!

Bikini:  I have raved about this bikini already but I will again.  The fit is phenomenal and it gives a confidence boost! Check them out! (I'm in the bikini in the pic above!)

Flip Flops:  These are too cute!  What more can I say, I want them!

Tumbler:  I probably own too many of these Lilly Tumblers but they are so convenient and adorable!  I use one daily, not just at the beach/pool.

Sunscreen:  This Hawaiian Tropic spray has been my favorite for years, it smells divine! 

Hope you all have a blast this weekend!

xxoo, Kristina

Hi everyone!  My favorite weekend of the year is upon us...the 4th of July!  I look forward to this yearly as it gives me the excuse to beach, pool, wear red, white and blue and watch fireworks!  It's the perfect combination!  Today, I have a casual look for a BBQ/ Pool Day which will be my 4th activities.  I am decked out in a lot of Jadelynn Brooke because they have some of the cutest patriotic gear and some great options for your summer day needs!  (I'm basically in love with Jadelynn Brooke!) If I happen to go out one night, I will be sure to post my more formal look as well.  As always, I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful 4th of July!

I wanted to include the bikini I will be wearing on the 4th too! Check out my Instagram for pictures at the pool on the 4th!

Tank: c/o Jadelynn Brooke ( I'm OBSESSED with this) / Hat: c/o Jadelynn Brooke / Shorts: Target / Tote: c/o Jadelynn Brooke / Towel: Old Navy - in store only but current / Bikini: Target - Top & Bottom / Flip Flops: Old Navy

Thank you so much, Jadelynn Brooke! You girls are so kind and sweet.  I can't thank you enough for the wonderful gifts!
