Long Weekend Packing MUST HAVES!

Hi lovelies!! CANNOT believe the Fourth of July is already here! I swear just yesterday there was snow on the ground. Soooo excited for what’s ahead. My boyfriend and I are headed outta here for the Fourth of July just us two! I’m V excited because not only are we spending a couple of nights away, work free, morning alarm free, but we’re spending a couple nights away in my favorite place. Cape Cod/ Martha’s Vineyard/Nantucket. Yeah, pretty much going to be everywhere! Today on the blog I’m sharing with you readers what I’m packing. Deffff not all because we’d be here AWHILE lol.. So I broke it down into some categories for you dolls.



The main travel accessories

Tory Burch Embroidered-t Weekender


So the newest accessory to the family is this beauty. A beauty am I right?! Too be honest this is not what I was looking for. Let me start off by saying I was in the market for a weekend duffle bag so that’s why I bought it in the first place. But any who, I originally wanted a Vineyard Vines whale weekender but at the moment Vineyard Vines is only selling the weekender bag both online and in store in the world cup print and I was just like no. Nothing against the world cup just no. Nothing fashionable about that what so ever. So that brings me to this Tory Burch BEAUTY.

I originally saw it on the Nordstrom website first and out of curiosity, I then went to the Tory Burch website where IT WAS ON SALE and still is!! From there I clicked order without a second thought and OMG SO. GLAD. I DID. I am in loveeee with this weekender. I know it’s going to last me a very long time and I’m going to get SO MUCH use out of it. Durable, sooo much space, expandable, zip pockets, optional cross body strap, which I love.

Vineyard Vines Tote

Love this Tote. I mainly use it as a beach bag but it’s great for traveling. I usually put things like shoes, food (of course) my laptop, chargers, all the odds and end things that don’t go in my main travel bag.

Vineyard Vines Cosmetic Case

Another Vineyard Vines goody of mine and one of my favorites. If you’re regular follower of my blog you know I love this cosmetic case and have gotten a ton of use out of it. Not only do I love it for its beauty (the checkered blue interior is my favorite) but for its durability. It’s so well built and fits all of my cosmetics perfectly, which is A LOT. Trust me. So right there you know pictures don’t do justice for what you can squeeze in here. Plus the zipper is V strong. SUPER CUTE am I right?!

The shoes…

Now this is the category I tend to over pack the most in. SHOES. So this time I’m breaking old habits and bringing only three. That’s right. THREE. Ugh, if I regret this my boyfriend is to blame.


Another area I tend to over pack in. I just can’t help it!! Who knows what can happen…what if I wake up with a huge blemish and don’t have the right product with me to act fast?!?! Yeah..that’s pretty much how I think when it comes to packing my cosmetics. But seriously “What If?!”

First, my basic everyday makeup/perfume. A MUST.

Second, all the products that I use EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. on my face. another MUST.

Other Necessities 

Annnnnd because we’re going to be in the sun like 24/7 we need protection. Over the course of the last year or so I have really stepped up my skin protection game. Before, I would just go to the beach and oil up with no sun protection what so ever. I never took sun protection seriously. That is until a harsh reality brought me into the dermatoligst’s office with sun spots. Yeah, DON’T EVER want to experience that again. So now I protect!



Picked up these products this morning at Target!

If you don’t hear from me soon..

Have a safe and happy Fourth Of July everyone!

Happy National Wear Your Lilly Day!

Hi darlings! Happy Wednesday! And happy National Wear Your Lilly Day! Anddd happy first day of summer of course!! I celebrated both National Wear Your Lilly Day and first day of summer THE MOST appropriate way I know…bought some new Lilly of course.


What I got

Baybreeze Short

I was in desperate need of a pair of shorts for the summer that I can just hang around the house in/ run quick errands in/wear on a not doing much kind of day… you follow? Aka something comfortable, when it’s just SO unbearably hot to wear leggings. Which is why I’m SOO, SOO glad I found these beauties. They’re just what I needed!! Comfortable isn’t the word. I swear it feels like I’m wearing nothing. SO COMFORTABLE. I already know I am going to get so much use out of these this summer. I mean, I’m already wearing them as we speak.

Callahan Short

I’m a lover of Lilly Callahan shorts but I’m even more of a lover of Callahan shorts when in Resort Navy Travelers Palm. ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE prints from Lilly. And today I was finally able to snag a pair in my favorite style of shorts from Lilly. So win and win.

Paradis Dress

Something, something about this print I like and am always drawn too. This print seems to always catch my eye. Multi Hit The Spot is the name. And OMG deff in my top five Lilly Print favs. And all’s I had to see…. Was this print. In this day dress. ON SALE. You guys really didn’t expect me to walk away from it, now did you..? Because if you did then you donut know me at all.

I mean, how cute?!

Kenneth Cole Shirr Thing

Hi loves! Long over due new post. I’m really trying to keep up with daily posts but it’s so dang hard..If only I could quit my job..lol Anywho, on the blog today I’m sharing this new Kenneth Cole Shirr Thing one piece bathing suit I just got and I’m OBSESSED.

Purchased from Everything But Water for $107

So yes, a little pricey for a bathing suit but the quality of this suit is what makes it. It’s flattering on the body and the material is quite strong. It’s not cheaply made. I’ve been eyeing one piece suits for awhile now and knew I wanted a one piece when I went shopping. One piece bathing suits have seriously come such a long way. It’s fashionable and sexy (according to my boyfriend)

We went to the beach this past weekend and the stares and compliments I got on this suit were numerous. Woman of all ages were complimenting me. It’s different. A stylish/chic different. I find this to be a very classy suit and it’s worth every penny. I already know I am going to get SO MUCH use out of it this summer!

Hi darlings! Happy June! Today finally felt like a spring day and I was all about it. In a short post today I’m sharing a new obsession of mine. Ready? Okay, so on a recent day trip with my boyfriend and family to Newburyport I came across this store and FELL IN LOVE. Everything was nautical and by everything I mean EVERYTHING. I swear, I wish I could live in this store. Anchors, whales, navy blue, wine cases!!! Like hunny I. AM. HOME. So this gem of a store that I can’t believe I had no clue about is called SEA BAGS MAINE. 

In the store

How cute are these totes?!?!


A couple of my favorite items

Navy Anchor Tote

Sand Dollar Tote

Anchor Wine Bag

Whale Tail Wristlet 

Ogunquit Sea Tote

New J.Crew!

New J.crew! How many posts have I titled “New J.Crew” ? A.LOT. But I seriously I have an addiction to J and I’m not sorry about it! I’m just so obsessed with their style and vibe. It’s never a miss when shopping J.Crew. Today I picked up some new buys and by some I mean three items, which is fair. I didn’t splurge this time. It was hard but I made it out alive and alive without some very cute items!

What I got!

Striped Pouch

When I first walked in the store this pouch was right up front and of courseeee caught my eye right away! Simple but so cute! I’m thinking, summer nights on the town to hold my money, phone, credit cards, etc…Not too mention it’s the absolute cutest and striped of course! J.Crew is my favorite, they can take something so simple but throw in a little cute extra detail give it that extra little appeal. Did you notice? The little orange on the zipper..SO CUTE!!

Striped Boat Neck Top

Oops I did it again. STRIPES. Legit have this shirt in every color J.Crew has to offer but I can’t help it! I love these shirts, super casual, perfect for the weekends paired with a simple legging but can also be dressed up for work. I finally gave into the red today because alls that was flashing through my mind was that paired with white jeans or blue denim and BOOM had to have. The outfit ideas and way to style this color just poured into my brain and from there it was a done deal. SOO SOO glad I got it!

Tipped ruffle top in stripe 

There’s no other way to describe this shirt other than beautiful. This is what I love about J.Crew, their shirts are so uniquely designed. A little more on the pricey side because it was a fairly new shirt they had just got in and made with a little better quality but a total must have in my book. Don’t you agree?!

Happy Wine Wednesday!
