The Perfect Vacation Memento

The Perfect Vacation Memento

Living in Nassau is not a permanent thing for me and my husband. We are briefly spending 3-4 years here for work and sometimes we just wish you could take the beach with you when we finally leave. You just want something to remember is all by...

A few months ago I found out about an incredible company, Dune Jewelry, and was beyond excited. In fact, keeping it to myself this long has felt like hiding a pregnancy. I wanted to wait until every one could see this post and how incredible this idea is.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun x RahRahDesigns

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun x RahRahDesigns

I have been eyeing this RahRah Designs bikini for a while, and a month ago it went on sale so I snatched one up right away. Monograms are really making a turn for the cool. What used to feel stuffy or childish to be now feels like a badge of honor. My initials didn't change with marriage so my monogram represents all of me. And it reminds me of college, where with stitched our sorority letters anything that didn't walk.

Day Date in Downtown Nassau

Day Date in Downtown Nassau

Today I made J have a little lunch date with me. It was actually really fun. Such an amazing way to break up the week. The weather has been perfect, and it's been a while since I've been downtown. It usually overwhelms me, but today was completely refreshing. Not too many cruise ships were in town, and we were able to take our watches in for new batteries. I know, I know.. "Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond, I don't know if we'll have enough time..." As for the #OOTD...

Morning Yoga with YogaOutlet.com

Morning Yoga with YogaOutlet.com

Yoga takes me back to the basics. When I am feeling wound up and out of control, I head to the mat. Since moving, I haven't been practicing as much as I hoped to, but when I get to do a little morning yoga on the beach, it shifts my holiday. Possibly even my whole week. Taking that quiet time to get into my body heals. And having the ocean right here, is such a blessing. My Yoga Teacher Training is priceless in the amount of knowledge I learn about my body and the human spirit. Yoga is for everyone and if you can get to a class, no matter your skill level, go!

My Favorite Black Midi Skirt

My Favorite Black Midi Skirt

Sundays Best is always my favorite. I guess since I'm not strutting around an office day to day, I find the luxury in really dolling it up when I can. This look was put together so unbelievably quickly, I don't even think I looked in the mirror. When I was looking at the pictures later I said "Oh I actually really like this look." I hadn't really seen it full length.

Fall Silks with Shorts

Last night was Mexican Night at The Green Parrot. Guys. This is a really BIG deal. There are no Mexican restaurants in Nassau, Bahamas. (At least no trust worthy ones.) J and I used to have one down the street. The kid loves Mexican food. So we actually went out on a weeknight(!!!), and headed to the Green Parrot. The food was actually good! I had the fish tacos (Mahi Mahi aka Dolphin for anyone from South Florida). They were just enough spice and a great portion. The Green Parrot also serves $4 Margaritas on Wednesdays, It's basically a dixie cup size, but it's the cheapest drink you're going to get on the island. 

I, being me, over dressed for the occasion. Well, almost. Business up top. Part on the Bottom. I ran out of time getting ready so my hair air dried. Trying to make Fall happen in Nassau is like trying to make fetch happen. It doesn't. We headed towards the restaurant and stopped to take in this beautiful sunset, and get OOTD pics obviously. Living in The Bahamas has it's ups and downs, but when you see a sky kiss a shore like that.. It's just everything. 

**PS my Summer tan is officially gone after time in New York. Boo.

90's Flannel & Denim Remix: Travel Day!

Whether Fall is among us or not, the island of New Providence is still hot, hot, hot. Shorts are mandatory. But that doesn't mean I can't keep up with the 90's throwbacks that are being pulled out all over the fashion world. And this throwback is the real deal. This flannel is actually my grandfather's. Use what you have. Mix's highs, lows, thrift, rack, new, or old. Have fun with your clothing and let it tell your mood.

Today was a travel day for me. I am finally en route to my first New York Fashion Week, with an initial pit stop for some work in Miami. Traveling is all about being cozy. Even though this flight is all of 29 minutes, you have to think of customs, luggage, check in, etc. I ALWAYS wear my Frye boots when I travel because they are probably the heaviest thing I pack. Opting for shorts means I need to remember to bring a scarf to sit on and wrap my legs with on the plane. And having a cozy over shirt or sweater is a must.
