REVAMP THE OLD WITH ACCESSORIES

Details: Express Deep V Pink top, similar here | Charming Charlie The Austin earring, here |

I had the best vacation week last week! It was sunny nearly every day, I read a total of four books and I was with my two favorites: mom and dad. Although it has been difficult to get back to work, I’m pleasantly surprised at how fast this week is going…it’s Wednesday already! With these steamy temps, I’ve been resorting to sleeveless tops and bare leg. One of my recent favorite tops is this flowy pink deep V top. It’s comfortable and simple. In an effort to protect my bank account, I’ve been purchasing fun earrings to make some of my older tops feel new. Even though this top is a newbie to my closet, I decided to take things up a notch and accessorize with this colorful complementary 3-ball earrings from Charming Charlie. I love these earrings so much that I purchased them in a couple other colors. What!?!? I’m still saving, they were only $12 (blushing). Cheers to hump day and saving money! Instead of collecting new tops and dresses, revamp your oldies but goodies with some fun accessories. Trust me, you’ll look at your older clothes in a whole new way.

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?

VACATION MODE: SLEEP. BEACH. REPEAT.

Details: Floral drawstring shorts from TJ Maxx, similar here |

I am SO excited to go on a little stay-cation. Next week, I’m heading to my family’s beach house on the Long Island Sound in CT. I’m way overdue for a vacation and am super excited to have no plans, wear these comfy drawstring shorts every day and lay peacefully in the sand. It’s so funny because the past two years, we’ve gone on a fun tropical vacation and don’t get me wrong, that’s always a fun time, but I like the idea of really having no plans. I spend every day organizing and managing my workload, that I’m just excited to not know what I’m doing and not following agenda or a “To Do” list. Aside from shooting some new looks for the blog, I fully intend on living in my bathing suit, cover-up and these comfortable and socially acceptable floral drawstring shorts. I wish I had purchased another pair because they’re just too cute, but I guess I can swap back forth between cover-ups and oversized tees. I’m also excited to eat home cooked food that I don’t necessarily have to purchase OR cook–whoa! What does your ideal summer vacation look like?
