dress: Free People, similar // shoes: Tory Burch, similar // bracelet: Hermes //

That’s it- three simple pieces. Sometimes when I wake up I just want to throw on a dress and go and this was one of those days.  I chose this dress because it’s perfect for summer, simple, white and stunning. Plus, super comfy and just a great all around dress for anything! For the most part, I always sleep in my jewelry: the prayer bracelets, signet ring, nantucket bracelet and Hermes bracelet. If I didn’t sleep in my jewelery I would forget to put it on half the time.

When you wake up in a “blah” mood but know you have to get ready, what do you put on? What are your go to three pieces?

Trending: Drawstring Pants

IMG_1107IMG_1113 IMG_1115IMG_1117 IMG_1122IMG_1119

top: J. Crew // pants: Raoul // sandals: Isola // bracelets: Seahorse, Turquoise // ring: Anna Beck // necklace: gold chain // purse: Rebecca Minkoff //

So, I’ve been dying to try the drawstring pant trend that is tight on the bottom! I knew that when Raoul contacted me and mentioned they had them in their new Spring/Summer 14 Ready- To- Wear line that I had to jump on board and try them. I will admit I was very iffy about the trend but once I realized how comfy they were I was in heaven. And now I happen to have my eyes on another pair!

What do y’all think of this trend?

Here’s Friday nights outfit..a few days late! We went to the Tiki Bar for drinks and sat outside of an Italian restaurant for dinner. I had Eggplant Rollatini and it was so yummy.  Crazy to think that I’m on summer and I should be relaxing yet I’m running around like a chicken with its head cut off. I have been nannying for 3 weeks so trying to sneak in pictures has been very difficult but I’ll be done tomorrow so the fun is coming!

feeling pink

I haven’t worn this much pink since I was a kid and to be honest I’m loving it. Raoul sent me this adorable look and a few others and this was the first thing I wanted to put on! It made me feel so young, girly and flirty! It’s perfect to kick off summertime!
I hope y’all have a great weekend!

dress: J. Crew, similar // sandals: Mystique// clutch: Lilly Pulitzer, old // necklace: LB Collections // sunglasses: Ray- Ban // bangles: Lilly Pulitzer

I love navy, I love turquoise and I love summer. How great is this necklace from LB Collections? It’s called the “Palm Beach”…so appropriate for this Florida girl. I love pairing a bold color with something neutral like navy. This look is simple but still chic. I hope y’all are having a great week!

Bikini Season

Bikini Season
one // two // three // four // five // six
Besides being addicted to cowboy boots and nail polish, I also happen to be slightly addicted to bikinis.  Since I grew up in Florida I can honestly say that I was in a bikini at least 75% of my childhood, and until I was about 6 I didn’t wear tops (one pieces were never an option in my book either). I still continue to be in a bikini 75% of the time when I’m home but clearly I wear tops now. Summer or winter it doesn’t matter the season — as long as the sun is out! I love nothing more than soaking up the sun and getting vitamin D.
After all getting a tan is the best medicine around!
Hope you enjoy my favorite bikinis!

We shot at Waldo’s Secret Garden..which is her backyard and my future wedding venue when that time comes. Don’t worry…we still have more fun ideas planned out coming soon!

Just a day away from the weekend, and two days away from the Preakness!  Unfortunately, I won’t be attending the Preakness this weekend but I will be going to my old horse show stomping grounds to cheer on my Shady Oaks Ranch girls at a local show. I will without a doubt be wearing my horse bit bracelet, hoping it will bring good luck to the girls. Fun horsey pictures to come 🙂
