Cloudy, Free, and Local

After over a month of abundant sunshine, the rain has moved in which made weekend plans kind of tricky. Lil' miss kept asking for the pool, but the weather just wasn't cooperating so we also canceled beach plans. Of course as soon as we loaded up in the car to go grab a drink and some dinner the clouds parted and the sun came out to say hello.

We decided to stop in, and check out the new Loggerhead Distillery where we enjoyed a free tasting and got to chat with one of the owners. I was also excited to be greeted by the "distillery doggy" because who doesn't love sweet pups? With all the local breweries popping up all over the place, it was refreshing to check out a brand new distillery. 

We sampled their white rum, vodka, sweet tea vodka, and moonshine which actually was quite tasty. I honestly loved everything we tried and can't wait until all of their products hit local shelves. For now, you can pick up a bottle of their first batch of vodka for $26 including tax.

Loving Lately

It's been a while since I've recapped my recent favs, so grab your Monday morning cup of coffee and join the fun.

Bring on all the summery fun like this floatie which is on sale for only $17 right now. Get it while it's hot! It's perfect for lounging with a cold drink in hand. 

I'm also loving some of my recent purchases like these pajama shorts which are so incredibly soft, and only $15. I love wearing them around the house because we all know once I get home I get into the comfiest clothes possible.

I ordered these flats for work since they're on major sale at a whopping 60% off and because rose gold. As much as I love rockin' heels and wedges, these will be a nice break for my footsies. 

My new favorite top for casual fun on the weekend is this swing tank which comes in 2 colors and layers perfectly over a lace bralette or cami. Did I mention it's only $20

I'm still obsessed with this palm print bathing suit that I wore on our cruise stop in Cozumel - recap found here. And still obsessed with vacation and our photos and memories from the trip in general. #TakeMeBack

As well as this colorful beach coverup for $23. Seriously been on repeat since I bought it in early spring! 

I also need more excuses to rock this romper which is perfect for patio brunches and happy hours in the summer heat. 

In other news, I'm almost done with the 2nd book in the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy and it's SO good. I'm going to be sad when I'm done with all 3. Speaking of - does anyone know if they're making China Rich Girlfriend and Rich People Problems into movies as well? They ended the movie for the first book kind of wrapped up in a pretty little bow - which was different from how the book ended so I'm curious. 

And if you're not already subscribed to Lindsay's new podcast Influenced the Podcast - what are you waiting for?! Believe it or not, this is my first ever podcast that I've listened to and I couldn't be more excited!

Last, but certainly not least - thank you to everyone who gave me advice when I cried out for help on Twitter for my Poshmark Closet. I am happy to report I made 3 sales last week, and added a bunch more to my "closet". Hop on over to check it out! I know I push a lot of "fast fashion", so I couldn't be happier to contribute to "slow fashion" as well. Reduce, reuse, recycle!

Rompin' Around in Dark Florals

I still can't get enough of dark florals, and swooned when I first saw this romper for only $21. It's perfect for the summer heat and can be dressed up with some statement jewelry and wedges or dressed down with some sandals and minimal accessories. Speaking of summer, it's in full effect here in the sunshine state. I have been living in the pool, and I like to call this hair-do "pool chic" aka I pulled back my wet chlorinated mane into a bun because seasonal laziness. Voila!

Believe it or not I'm wearing a bra, you just have to be a ninja about how you tie the material in the back. And if you don't need the extra support, the straps combined with the tie back do provide support. I just wanted the extra layer since the front is white.

Hello June

It's the mooooooost wonderful time of the year! I've always been a summer girl through and through, hence the move from CT to FL without ever looking back. I'm super excited for all the warm weather fun including beach days, pool time, and summer parties.

H and I snuck off to the beach to enjoy a day date, and I have a feeling my Beach Please floppy hat will be on repeat for the next several months.

We also had family in town which coincided with H's birthday, and the cousins got lots of play time at the splash pad, the park, and swimming.

Then it was time to celebrate our friend's beautiful brand new pool that was ready just in time to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend. Grill food, swimming, and good times with good friends.

*My festive girl*

Going Green

This time of year, I'm living in breezy tops and shorts or flowy sundresses. Florida has already turned up the heat, so I officially have retired my jeans until mid-late fall. I loved how airy this tie knot shirt is, and that I can style it for weekend fun with a pair of shorts or a pair of dress pants for the office. And at only $20 (plus there's an extra 15% off coupon available right now), I need to scoop up another color as well. When I can wear an item both at work and on the weekends, I'm sold.
