Hot Kiss Giveaway

Happy Friday !!

What better way to start the weekend than with a summertime casual denim duo.  I love denim on denim.  Probably a little too much.  The combinations are endless and it's one of those looks that can be tailored to fit any season.  The Canadian tux is my friend.  And I know I'm going to be double-dipping in denim all summer thanks to these perfect Hot Kiss distressed shorts.  They just scream summertime at the beach.

 I also love discovered old favorites in my shoe closet when I start transitioning to the Summer crop.  These fun d'orsay flats were picked up last summer and I was so excited to dig them back out.  Old shoes meet new baubles to create a perfectly causal look.  This good vibes pendant from Jaeci Designs is perfect for layering (ps - look for a Jaeci giveaway on the blog next week)  and my new Southern Stones bangles are perfect for stacking.  

Hot Kiss wants to help you kick off the weekend by giving away a pair of denim to one lucky reader!  Who doesn't need more denim in their life ?!?  Just fill out the Rafflecopter below and cross your fingers!

Floral Skirts

Happy Thursday, Loves!

Can I just be honest for a minute and tell you that I could wear a floral skirt just about every day of the week?  Especially one as darling & comfy as this one from my favorite, The Girl That Loves (ps - they have added some of the CAHuutest tops as of late!)  This type of skirt is easy and practical for work and can be accessorized in a jiffy when I'm 5 minutes late running out the door...which, if you know me, is everyday.  EVERY day.  True story.

Staycation Doldrums

Happy Wednesday, Ya'll!

Wow - I should really be saying Happy Monday, huh?  Sorry for taking a tiny break from the blogosphere this week.  I was completely lost in Memorial weekend activities and neglected most responsibilities last weekend.  You could call it a stay-cation.  And now being back to the grind has left me with a major case of the debbie downers.  Major.  Thank goodness it's already Wednesday!

The only saving me from an entire week in the Doldrums is this precious little white dress from White Plum!  The fun embroidered pattern makes me ready for a Summertime fiesta, and the straps are removable so no tan lines for this gal.  I kept the look daytime with fun flatforms and a cropped denim jacket.  I love how buttoning up a jean jacket all the way can completely change a look.  And I am really loving this new boho spike necklace from Nwaobiara.  They have such a fun selection of baubles!

My Vegas Style

Happy Saturday, Y'all!

Thanks for stopping by my little space of the world before heading off to your barbecues pool parties and fireworks.  Today I wanted to share with you My Vegas Style - or what I would be stuffing into my suitcase to spend a day at the ARIA resort & casino in Las Vegas.  Have you seen this place?  Yowza.  Even the outside screams fun fun fun!

There is definitely more than one day's worth of activities to enjoy at ARIA.  However, being a true beach gal, I know I would spend the first part of my day at the pool.  In particular, the Liquid Pool Lounge.  And while in Vegas, you can't just throw on your speedo and expect to blend in.  There's a certain level of sex appeal that is the social norm.  This bikini is super classic with the black & white color scheme, but the cut of the suit leaves very little to the imagination.  I would pair pops of yellow & pink with the suit to keep it light and refreshing.  

What comes after a morning of pool tunes and mimosas?  Lunch and shopping of course!  That is after a quick outfit change.  Maybe Spanish tapas at Julian Serrano to fuel up for an epic afternoon of shopping.  The romper keeps me cool and comfy while having a girls afternoon, but the accessories keep the look chic and polished.

How do you finish up a day in Vegas?!  Dancing your tush off at one of Aria's nightclubs or lounges!  For a night of drinks & dancing I went a little left of norm.  I wanted to have fun with the look and create a chic summertime feel.  By pairing what seems like a day dress with more formal accessories, I am ready to hit the town!

So what would you pack for a day at ARIA in Vegas?  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Chambray Romper

Happy Friday, loves!

Nothing says Memorial weekend like a chambray romper.  I tried my best to keep the look patriotic, but the pink necklace was just begging to be worn...

I found this chambray romper last Friday on my weekly TJ Maxx trip.  It is seriously the softest fabric ever!  I know I am going to live in this thing all summer.  I linked up a few great options, but if you are near a TJ this weekend, I highly recommend this one from cloth & stone.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  If you need me I will be frying like an egg in the sun with a few cocktails and a few best friends!

Pink Sorbet

Happy Friday Eve!

Something about pink & white makes me feel ready for Summer.  And something about this pink Meachy Lynn top has me all kinds of happy.  Not only is the color perfect for Summer, the cut and tiny cutouts are so classic and feminine.  This top is going to be great dressed up or styled more casually with denim cutoffs and sandals.   ps - Don't forget to use code M&MFS for free shipping from Meachy Lynn until 05/26 !

How fun and convenient is this packable hat from Cappelli ?!  As I'm sure you've all realized by now, I am on the boat or beach every weekend April to October.  I love a tan as much as the next girl, but being in the sun that much can really take a toll on your skin.  I have come to love and collect hats just for Summer weekend protection.  This Cappelli Pack A Hat could not be more perfect for this!  Not only does this adorable hat pack up neatly into a stylish pouch, it also has UPF 50 plus!  I love that I can throw the straw pouch into my boat bag so I will never be without sun protection.  The hat/bag combo is only $25 and you can get free shipping through the link above!

I also have to tell you about some of my favorite new jewels as of late.  Fate put this necklace combo on my doorstep this week and I can't seem to get enough of it.  I am so in love with my Maggie necklace from Arm Candy Fashion (WWCBD - what would Carrie Bradshaw Do...) and this statement necklace from Charming Finds is just stunning.  SPOILER ALERT....  I'm giving away one of the Charming Finds Kimberly necklaces on the blog next week...

I have been lusting after a black watch for sometime now.  I always find myself with a watch on.  Usually it's the obnoxiously big gold Fossil watch, but I need to switch it up every now and then.  I couldn't be happier with my new black timepiece from May28th!  This line of quirky, trendy watches is perfect for everyday wear.    They have a casual feel but remain stylish with a printed face.  There is really a print & color for every taste so make sure to browse the selection.  

Hurry up Friday!
