Spring Break Dresses

Morning Friends!

I just got home from a beautiful few days at Secrets Akumal in Riviera Maya!  It is always so nice to get out of town for a few days, but no saying is truer than "Home is where the heart is."  It was hard not sharing such a beautiful place with Jonny and I am so happy to be home (a little tanner) today.

You know I am a dress fanatic, so it was nice to pack only one pair of shorts and jeans for the plane for this trip.  I had never been to an all inclusive resort  so it was such a pleasant surprise to not have to bring a purse anywhere.  Today also happens to be National Dress Day so I wanted to be sure to share a few of my favorite dresses from my Spring Break.  

I posted this dress (which is now on super sale $42!) on Instagram during my trip and got a lot of questions about it! I love the tailored fit of this shift (sometimes they can be boxy).  For sizing, I always check out Asos size guide because some things are tiny tiny and others run big.  This dress runs true to their sizing guide, I ordered a 4 and it fits perfectly (I typically wear 0-2 in most dresses).  The colors are a bit brighter than advertised which is so perfect for a beach trip, bachelorette, or vegas vaca!!  Also, big plus for me, 2 day shipping was a huge life saver since this was a last minute trip and you know I am not always the best about planning ahead :/.  

I immediately put this dress in my cart when I saw it - you know I can't resist a flowy dress with ruffles (under $60)! As you can see it does have a much deeper cut than I would normally wear, but "When in Mexico..." 💁🏽💃🏽! I would suggest fashion tape which I sadly forgot.  I love all of the fun earring styles right now, perfect for spring breaking too! My earrings $48 come in six other colors  (2 shades of pink!).  I also love these and these!  

Excited to share more from my trip with you guys!! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!

no ticket, no problem

Hi Guys!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and it's been a great week so far.  Jonny and I had a blast in Chicago celebrating our friends and just loved exploring the city.  We spent all day Sunday, with a big group of friends, riding from neighborhood to neighborhood, along the Navy Pier with their bike share program, it was such a fun way to sightsee.

We always love to travel and spend time with friends, but we are home for a few weeks and I am so excited to spend some time in our own wonderful city for a while.  

Amazing restaurants are opening right and left in Denver, but Jonny and I have our tried and true favorites... and Linger is one of them.  They opened a few years ago, but it continues to be one of the best places for brunch and happy hour and our go to suggestion for out of town guests (the view is fantastic).  It is nice to be home to be reminded of the little gems right in our own back yard.

I do love that this dress feels like a vacation all on its own... no plane or TSA headache needed.  It is also on sale ($143) with just a few sizes left (I am wearing a 2 for sizing purposes).  All of Mara Hoffman's pieces feel like a tropical getaway - I also love this one, this one, and this one (also on sale).  Right now is the perfect time to stock up on summer dresses since brands and retailers are getting ready to launch fall lines and they need to make room (jokes on them because there is so much summer left - hehe!).  My purse has been one of my favorite last minute buys this summer - especially since it was only $12! The quality is great and I love adding a bright pop of color to any outfit.

Working on a few Anniversary Sale roundups over the next few days, let me know if there is anything you are loving and would like me to focus on.

Spring Fever

You Guys...

I've got spring fever or cabin fever or something fever - really just vacation on the B-a-RAIN! I am (almost) all packed up for our trip and of course now (the day before we leave) I am realizing all of the cute things I wish I had purchased when I was eyeing them weeks ago!  Don't get me wrong, I did my fair share of shopping to get prepared, but I always seem to find a few more things I wish I had snapped up while I was thinking about it... (darn it!)

I have had quite an interesting time packing, friends.... My lovely husband made me promise that I would pack very light (errrrr, ok???).  Luckily we have been together almost eight years now so he knows not to expect much from this promise.  However,  with 95 degree weather and 99% humidity it has made things a little easier!

Since it is going to be so warm and humid where we are going I was looking for light, yet functional clothing.  I got this yellow sundress ($55), it is great quality and fun flowy fit!  I am also loving the cold shoulder trend for spring, it shows just enough skin and still has a classic and sweet look.  I think this eyelet number ($76) is just gorgeous!  I remember having cover up envy last summer when I went to the beach... this set is stunning and the cover up could easily be worn on its own it is so pretty!!  Finally, no vacation look is complete without a fun hat!  I wear my fadora anywhere and everywhere... I like this one ($18).  And I have been crushing on these gorgeous embroidered Eugenia Kim hats ($485) since last spring, they are a bit of an investment - also love this less expensive option ($23) and this one ($26)!
