Fun Stuff Friday: Resort Chic


I've been going to the beach a lot this summer and therefore really into swimwear-- a little too into swimwear. I have a drawer full of bathing suits and absolutely no need for new additions. Still, I'm obsessed with beachwear and accessories lately. Mara Hoffman is my favorite swim designer but I have yet to purchase a piece by her. Just look at these two-- they're masterpieces!

Also, the round beach towel is a huge trend this year. I love the palm one pictured above, and check out this great design for just $25.

And the bright bags are so Miami. In fact, they're part of Stephanie Johnson's "Miami" Collection this season. The blue carry-all is still available in her store and the pink is still available through Nordstrom. I love that it's clear so you can easily find your sunblock, chapstick, keys, phone and all the other little things that always end up at the bottom of the bag.

I just came back from a huge vacation (and have yet to publish any posts) but boy do I wish I could pack up this virtual wish list to a 5-star Caribbean resort this weekend. Sometimes I wish I could just win the Powerball and become a travel blogger, you know? ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ–๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ

Fun Stuff Saturday: BAGS, BAGS, BAGS
(under $100)

Oh, straw bags, you have my heart this summer. That's how this post started, and then I found all these other cute summer bags for non-beachy activities. So I threw them all together and voilร : a summer bag orgy. Best part is they're all under $100, and most are under $60.

Thanks for browsing.
Happy weekend, everyone!

Kimchi Blue Floral Midi Dress + Summer Giveaway (now closed)


Hello all.
Feels weird to post these happy looking pictures since it's a been such a somber few days for us... Just wanted to take this moment to acknowledge the tragedy that unfolded on Sunday.

These photos are from my spring shoot with Gen. I meant to post them before leaving on my trip or even during but it didn't happen. I took this dress on the cruise and turned a few heads with it, not gonna lie. It's a beautiful blend of feminine and sexy.

Keep reading to enter my summer giveaway-- I'm gifting a beautiful floral sports bra (size medium) and two sunnies to one lucky winner.

GIVEAWAY TIME!
Ok, so this is what I'm giving away! I loved this Albion Fit sports bra so much, you guys. But it didn't fit because I ordered the wrong size. I think it does fit like a true medium, I'm just in denial about being a large so I ordered a size too small. ๐Ÿ˜‚ And I'm also giving away these two sunglasses I bought from Romwe. I love them but I seriously have too many sunglasses, so why not give them away!
