A Whale of a Sale!

Yep, you guessed it... Vineyard Vines is having a summer sale!  I don't have a Vineyard Vines store near me so I rarely get to shop their fabulous clothes, unless I order off their website.  Since they're having a fabulous summer sale, I might just have to break out the debit card and order a few things.  

What are your favorite VV Sale items?

I am loving scalloped fashion right now.  Whether it's a dress, skirt or handbag... add some scalloped detail and I'm in love!

Check out the scalloped oxford shirt from KJP!

Saturday Morning Farmer's Market

I love the Downtown Lakeland Farmer's Curb Market.  Every Saturday morning two blocks of downtown Lakeland are filled with venders selling anything from fresh veggies to yummy fresh beignets and coffee!  It is so much fun to throw on a pair of J.Crew chinos and Sperrys and head downtown on a Saturday morning.

How fabulous do these beignets look? They were so yummy! The Poor Porker is my favorite part of the Downtown Farmer's Curb Market.

Isn't the Poor Porker's cart so cute! Adorable! 

Hope you are having an amazing Saturday!

A Look Back at Prince William's Royal Debut

With the #GreatKateWait in full swing, Royal Baby buzz is really kicking into high gear.  The most anticipated birth in my lifetime should happen sometime in the middle of July, reports say.  Bookies are already taking bets on everything from the date the little Prince or Princess will be born to what his or her first words will be.  Can you imagine the pressure Kate must be feeling knowing the whole world is waiting in anticipation of her first born child?

In honor of Prince William's 31st Birthday today, I thought I would take a look back at his birth and debut to the world.

Prince William was the first Royal to be born in a hospital, his son or daughter will be born in the same hospital, Saint Mary's.  Kate and William will introduce their baby to the world in a similar fashion as his parents, but we do not know if the name of the child will be announced that day or at a later date (which is typical for the Royal Family).

What do you think Duchess Catherine and Prince William will wear to introduce their first born to the world?  Will you be watching?

Black & White Stripes

I love stripes.  A good stripe dress is such an easy and put together look for the summer.  I have had this striped dress from J.Crew for a few years and usually pair it with tights and boots during the fall, but it really is perfect year round.  This week I paired it with my favorite white Jack Rogers sandals and a bright skinny belt.  I also added a bright statement necklace to add a pop of summer to tie the look together.

Hello Sunshine!

Hairbrush // Salad Server Set  // Glass // Dress // Skimmer Pant // Skirt

I am loving yellow right now.  I used to not be a fan of it at all, but this summer I fell in love!  Yellow goes with so many other colors and brightens up any outfit.  I particularly love yellow paired with navy and white.

Do you love yellow or steer away from it?

Tee Time

Kate Spade makes me want to take up golf.  I love all their golf themed accessories.  My favorite item has to be the tote bag, but the golf ball jewelry is totally fab as well!  Maybe golf will be my new summer hobby.  Not only are the clothes cute, but now I can show my golf spirit off the course thanks to Kate Spade!

Have a fabulous Friday y'all!

Vineyard Vines Hotel Suite

Have you seen the new Vineyard Vines themed hotel suites?  They are adorable!  Located in Kennebunkport and Nantucket these hotel rooms are the perfect getaway for any prepster's summer vacation.  I didn't think Kennebunkport and Nantucket could get any more fabulous, until now.

Check out that Vineyard Vines surfboard in the corner! Awesome.

How cute is that side table.  I could see that in my future apartment.

How fabulous would this room be to come home to after a long day of sightseeing?

Gotta love the Vineyard Vines garb! 

Stripes and white chairs... a fabulous combo!

J.Crew Fun in Hydrangea

J.Crew is filled with hydrangea colored items right now.  It is such a fun color for summer and I am loving all of their items!    

I am dying for this button-front dress.  It would be perfect for work or a weekend stroll through the Downtown Farmers Market.

You can't go wrong with stripes.  This white and hydrangea strapless dress is perfect for lunch with friends or a day of shopping.  Add a cute cardigan or jean jacket and you can wear it to casual Friday at work or an afternoon movie.

Hello! Matching PJs... How can you go wrong?  These are fabulous!

How cute is this bag?  I am loving smaller handbags right now.  They are so stylish and easy to carry.

I am loving light-weight sleeveless tops this summer.  They are so easy to throw on with jeans or shorts on the weekends or dress up with a skirt or slacks for work.  As you can tell I love anything that can easily transition from work to the weekend! 

Are you loving hydrangea too?

Five Things I'm Loving For Summer

This summer I am all about all things nautical and bright.  If it's navy, red and white I love it.  Put an anchor on it and I'm sold!  Stripes... oh my! I love stripes.  Summer is such a fun time and the clothes are amazing!  Bright colors and fun patterns will brighten any rainy summer afternoon (and boy do we have plenty of those in Florida).

It has been quite a while since I did a top 5 things I'm loving post, so I thought it was time I did one.  {Check out Fall & Winter}

C Wonder Anchor Rings | Awikio Riviera Striped Dress | C Wonder Alligator Studs
Kate Spade Carmelita Wedges  | J.Crew Skimmer Pant

1. C Wonder Anchor Rings | I am totally in love with C Wonder's nautical anchor rings.  Whether I am dressing up to go out to dinner with friends or hanging out at home on a lazy Saturday, I always sport a ring on my right hand.  These anchor rings are perfect for summer.  You can choose to stack all three or wear them individually, but either way they're tones of fun!

2. Awikio Riviera Striped Dress | As soon as I found this dress I fell in love.  It combines all my favorite summer fashion trends... red, white & blue, stripes, and anchors! What could be better than that?  This is the perfect go-to summer dress.

3. C Wonder Alligator Studs | I am totally a studs girl.  I rarely wear big earrings, so these C Wonder studs are the perfect earrings for me.  Plus they are gators, how could I not love them?  These earrings are on my wish list to have before football season starts back up in September!

4. Kate Spade Carmelita Wedges | I am all about the wedges.  Whether it's for work or a night out with friends wedges are the most comfortable way to add a little style (& height) to your otherwise dull look.  Plus these adorable Kate Spade wedges have stripes and a bow, what could be better? (Find them on sale from Zappos now!)

5. J.Crew Skimmer Pant | I am totally obsessed with the J.Crew Factory skimmer pants.  They come in so many colors and are perfect for just about anything.  Dress them up for work with a blazer and heels or dress them down for errands on a Saturday with a tee and Jacks.  Add just about anything to them and you have a perfectly put together look (with little effort).

Now that you've heard all about my five favorite things for summer.  What are yours?  Tell me all about them in the comments below!

Seersucker & Jack Rogers Wedges

I am loving the J.Crew Factory Skimmer pants right now.  I have a couple of pairs and am dying to add a few more colors to my wardrobe.  Last night I went to a community event with my parents and wore my seersucker skimmer pants with a navy silk top.  I love how the skimmer pants can be dressed up or down and comfortable yet professional.

Get my look - J.Crew Factory Skimmer Pants in Seersucker, J.Crew Button Down Blouse (similar), J.Crew belt, Kate Spade crossbody bag, Kate Spade watch
