“Toes in the water, ass in the sand”

18 May

I returned from my vacation to St. John almost two weeks. My tan is starting to fade and I have stopped finding morsels of sand among all my belongings. It was an amazing trip full of sun, delicious drinks, and fun times with the family. We met great people, stray cats, and saw awesome fish while snorkeling. It was a trip I will always remember and hope to recreate one day. With this dreary weather we are having, I wanted to share a few pictures from my time in paradise to brighten your day. Enjoy.

We were greeted with rum punch when we arrived, great way to start the trip!

Brother and one of the stray cats we named Meiko.

First day at the pool. Jcrew hat and Longchamp Le Pliage.

Things that make me happy today:

1. Countdown to seeing besties, 3 days!

2. A new watch, obsessed.

3. More season finales.

Brrrr…It’s Cold In Here

5 Mar

Both my roommates have left me for warmer weather, one in Brazil and one in Marco Island. I too am going on a family vacation but not for almost two whole months! Blah. Watching them shop, pack, and get excited for their trip, I couldn’t help but think about my future island adventure. I decided to make an inspiration board for what I think is essential for the beach. Enjoy 🙂

1. A solid beach tote is really important for lugging all your goodies from the pool to the beach and back again. I am obsessed with this new one from Vineyard Vines.
2.  When it comes to sandals I am a die-hard Rainbow fan but couldn’t help but LOVE this nautical flops from VV!

3. Even though the color is super a tad obnoxious, they are very high on my wish list. There is nothing more I love than pink+green, summer, and Lilly Pulitzer and THESE combine them all in one. Perfect.

4. White is great for summer. It makes any tan look better. I have always had a soft spot for eyelets which is why I’m lusting over this Lilly dress.

5. Even though I have vowed to stop spending obscene amounts of money on sunglasses, I want these. Chanel, yum.

6.  I shouldn’t be allowed in Sephora, it’s bad. I always buy unnecessary things. However, it has benefited me in a few ways, like this Bobbi Brown tinted face lotion. The plus? SPF 15.

7. I am not able to read nearly as much as I would like which is why I love vacation. I get to sit on the beach, bask in the sun, and read. I recently purchased Shopaholic and Mini. I am a love of Sophia Kinsella and all the Shopaholic books.I also love Emily Giffin and am happy I haven’t had a chance to read her newest book, perfect for my trip. One of my favorite books is The Nanny Diaries, I have read it too many times. I heard there was a sequel and must get it for my vacation.

8. Can’t forget the iPod!

9. I recently purchased this hat from JCrew. One word: Obsessed.



Things that make me happy today:

1. Babysitting my roomie’s dog while she is away.

2. Going home for the weekend to celebrate my Dad’s birthday.

3. It is finally Friday, it has been a long week.
