It’s that time of the year when families and friends head out of town on fun excursions for spring break. I was not so lucky to be going anywhere fun this time so instead I live vicariously through Instagram posts of happy people enjoying the beach. I decided that if I can’t go anywhere, I can at least help someone plan a fabulous outfit for their fun trip. This is something I would wear if I was headed to the beaches of say…St Barts. I love eye-catching, bright swimwear. Bright colors look so good in the sun and no one makes a more colorful bikini than Mara Hoffman. I especially love the bustier top which is great for us ladies who aren’t as blessed in the cleavage area. A soft, white tunic cover-up is a nice complement to offset bright swimwear and I love the bohemian feel of this one. You can easily throw on some cut-off shorts and head to lunch. Oversized sunglasses will be huge this season and they always add a touch of glam to a look. A lot of people forget about wearing jewelry at the beach or pool but I love to accessorize at all times. A simple pendant necklace is easy and chic. All you need is a great straw bag and some fun sandals. These Kate Spade sandals are too adorable.

I hope you enjoy your vacation wherever you may be headed and have some fun for me too!
I have always been into earrings ever since I got my ears pierced at age 3. Even as a young girl, I wouldn’t even go to the mailbox without earrings on and I would scold my Mother if I caught her out without earrings. I actually still call her out today :-). I remember I had this huge hanging earring tree with a variety of cute stud earrings. I had everything from ballet shoes to cheeseburgers. As I got older, I began to wear big hoop and chandelier earrings. I will admit I went through the whole bamboo earring phase then moved on to finding the most ornate chandelier earrings I could find. Now I find myself wanting to scale down. I have been wearing my hair up mostly because I workout so often and big earrings aren’t very reasonable during a tennis match. I don’t know if it’s just because I’ve been looking for small earrings or if they are really making a comeback, but I’ve noticed that some brands are creating some really cool and unique stud earrings. Kate Spade, Anthropologie, and Modcloth have some absolutely adorable stud earrings in their collections. Here are just a few I like below. Enjoy!
I wish I had the bride and groom earrings to wear on my honeymoon but maybe I’ll get them for my one year anniversary that’s coming up this weekend!
It’s wedding season! Undoubtedly, you have at least one wedding to go to this summer and you’re probably struggling on what to wear. The key to being the perfectly dressed wedding guest is to look your best without appearing too sexy. Show some skin or wear a more figure-hugging dress, but not both!!! You don’t want to be the guest everyone is whispering about at the reception. Here are a few dress ideas for a day or an evening affair!
