ONE-PIECES FTW

Details: (old) Kate Spade floral one-piece via Marshalls, see similar styles below | Time and Tru via Walmart White Tie-Front Cover-up below |

It’s hard to believe that July is nearly over, which means summer is almost over. Why does it feel like the winter lasts for far too long and summer is so short and sweet? I’ve spent the majority of my summer on the beach, and I plan to do so for as long as possible. Last summer, I bought so many bathing suits that I didn’t feel the need to buy so many this summer. One of my favorites is this Kate Spade pink floral suit that I scored at Marshall’s last year. Can you say AMAZING find!? I’ve recently started loving one-pieces, the only problem is I like to get my stomach tan since it barely ever sees the light of day. I wear one-pieces when I feel like like I’ve gotten too much sun the day prior, and I’m ready to give some part of my body a break from the rays.

I genuinely miss the days where I would walk around the beach with my belly out, beach pail in hand and not a care in the world. I also miss when my 9 to 5 job consisted of combining just the right amount of wet sand with just the right amount of dry sand to create as many meatballs as possible. Now, my beach activities consist of reading as many books as possible, soaking up all rays possible and drinking a pina colada…oh AND this only happens on the weekend…not 9 to 5, Monday through Friday.

What are you most comfortable wearing to the beach and what are some of your favorite beach past times?!

SUMMER COMFORT: THE MAXI SKIRT

Details: Printed Easy Knit Maxi Skirt c/o J.Jill, here |

It’s maxi skirt season! I’ve been on vacation this week and I’ve never felt more relaxed. I went on a bit of a staycation and ventured to my family’s beach house on the Long Island Sound in Connecticut. My days have been spent basking in the sun from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. reading and relaxing. I feel so refreshed and the first time I put on my makeup was yesterday and it felt so foreign to me. I can’t say that my style has been on point this week because it’s been driven by comfort and I have NO problems with that. However, I’m planning on going out to dinner tonight and the closest thing to acceptable comfort is this colorful printed maxi from J.Jill. It’s super comfortable and looks good with a variety of colors: white, black, navy, purple and even turquoise. It’s flowy and because it’s available in petite it isn’t too long like most maxis are on me. I’m hanging on to these last few days of vacation and am planning on more sun, one more book and my favorite bathing suit. What are your plans for the weekend?
