Hello beautiful!  I hope you had a relaxing weekend...I spent part of mine scoping out the styles and pieces I'll be packing on those upcoming summer get-a-ways.  I know you probably hear me say this nearly everytime but, there's really a lot of adorable stuff out there!  Ruffles, gingham, florals and stripes are everywhere at the moment and all of it is done in such a way that there are flattering options for all shapes, sizes and styles.  I love when that happens.  Those who know me know that I am a denim skirt girl and always have been.  It works so effortlessly with everything from boots and sweaters in the fall to slip ons and off-the-shoulder tops (loving this one) in the summer.  Honestly, I don't think there's a more versatile piece you can have in your closet.  I also saw so many cute maxi dresses that will be perfect for beachside dinners watching those gorgeous magical sunsets.  I'm definitely inspired by all the palm leaf prints I've been seeing lately.  I began collecting small varieties last year in swimsuits and accents pieces for around the house and now I'm wanting to fully embrace the look with this dress.  Hello, Palm Springs!  These gold and cork-soled sandals are a 'bags packed, will travel' moment must-have along with this fragrance.  If you haven't had the pleasure of experiencing it yet, trust me you'll know exactly why it's my "Summer in a Bottle" go-to once you do.  Absolutely heavenly.  I don't know about you but all this talk has me ready and waiting for summer to get here.  Luckily, there's still time to pack your bags, haha.
