Nautical Adorable

I know I know Nautical for summer how original…. how ever this adorable stripped shirt I just couldn’t pass up (I should have gotten an XS instead of a S to be more flattering).  Its super soft, super comfortable and the 3/4 length sleeve is great for a chillier night.

The navy and white stripes accented by the simple gold buttons on the shoulders.  I went for the dark denim shorts and boat shoes to finish off this look and its one I’m in love with for the grocery store or the parks.

Happy Derby Day (and Yoda’s Birthday)

Happy Derby Day! (And of course Yoda’s birthday yes he was born on “Revenge of the Fifth”)

Now what would Derby Day be without a FABULOUS hat.  This hat is perfect for any fabulous outing with a giant black bow on the side, and did I mention its prime?  I felt like going vintage for this very last minute shoot with my friend Sarah to celebrate derby day.

This fantastic dress is from the Barbie line with Unique Vintage and its TO DIE FOR!!! For the record I’m straight up obsessed with this line!  It looks genuinely vintage in person, fits fairly nicely (minus the weird pooch I got from it) but still a fun dress that hugs you in all the right places.  As someone with an hourglass shape (read thick thighs and boobs) I felt this hugged me in every right place without accentuating the things I’m less than in love with about my body.

Now on to this epic hat, giant brim, lovely bow, classy yet very much a statement!  This checks off all the boxes for me for Derby Day for me.  Now for some mint juleps!!!  Happy races everyone and on to the Triple Crown!

IT HAS POCKETS!

Summer temperatures are in FULL SWING here in Orlando and this cute little romper is getting a lot of love from me right now!  Its light airy and if you can tell by the title IT HAS POCKETS!  Lets be real any cute outfit gets an upgrade when pockets show up! As we were shooting I said “I know this sounds so stupid but…” and my amazing photographer chimed in “but it has pockets, but isn’t that the best part?” Yea so its really all about the pockets.

 

I styled this super comfy and lightweight romper with some amazing things including adorable glitter flip flops from Kate Spade which are on sale NOW! (Ughh I love these things!)

 

And this fantastic vintage 60s inspired pink bag.  Fun fact, when I was buying it in the store the cashier decided to tell me how she felt it was just TOO Malibu Barbie for anyone to purchase it.  The other employee brought it out at that exact moment and I responded with “well that works then because I AM Malibu Barbie so clearly its meant for me”  Its also on sale and do I love this bag!

The final and lets be honest, most important part of this outfit is this amazing GIANT hat from Target of all places!  And especially in this brutal Florida I believe in blocking ALL THE SUN ever!

Spring Dress Under $10

Spring is is full swing and yellow is coming up as the hot color this year and who can resist an adorable scalloped dress.  Being super fair I am a huge fan of anything that keeps my face from getting too much sun and if I can look fabulous while doing it. Did I mention the Kentucky Derby is the day after my birthday?? This can’t be a coincidence! Girl loves a statement!

The best part about this adorable look is its under $15 from both links I chose!  It is time for brunch or a wedding and this will be towards the top of my picks.  The stretch fabric makes it fitted and I would suggest going up a size for the most flattering fit.
