Bon Voyage!

I can't believe the final countdown is on until we set sail with friends and our kiddos. I've been stocking up on all the fun pieces for myself and lil' miss. I seriously can't stop won't stop with all the darling toddler pieces!

Packing for a tropical cruise is always so easy for me because I live in bathing suits and cover ups by day, and dresses or rompers at night for dinner and a show. I always feel like all I need is some fun beach clothes, sundresses for dinner, my fav $16 sunnies, floppy hats, sunscreen, a beach bag, and my passport. So of course - a cute passport holder is necessary.

What are some of your must-have items that you pack for a cruise?

Shopping My Closet

Every time I get into a shopping rut and feel uninspired I shop my closet. This time, I broke out an oldie but a goodie maxi dress that I scooped up at Marshalls a few summers ago and paired it with adenim jacket that I layer over everything this time of year. Just add a pop of color with some fun sandals or jewelry.

A Night Out with Mr. Bublé

I've been a little quiet here in blog land, but there has been some fun had in recent weeks including a belated Galetine's evening to go see Michael Bublé and a day at the beach catching up with family. Always good for the soul.

We were totally spoiled by a good friend of ours with tickets in a luxury suite. Private bathrooms and not having to pay $15-$20 per drink? Yes please! And Mr. Bublé? AMAZING!

After the show was over, we made our way upstairs to the One80 Sky Lounge for another drink and some dancing under the stars. 

The next day, we went up to the coast to meet my aunt and uncle for lunch while they're visiting from CT. It was the perfect day to enjoy some food and drinks over a long overdue catch up on the water.

This One's for the Girls

I've never been a big fan of Valentine's Day, but I have definitely gotten on board with the fun of celebrating the strong women in my life. My husband and I love to celebrate our anniversary, but when it comes to Valentine's Day - I'd much rather be surprised with a sweet gift or fresh flowers "just because". Who's with me? But my girls - I don't get to see them all the time, so I love an excuse to spread the love.

Have a fabulous Galentine's Day celebrating the amazing women in your life! If you're unable to celebrate this evening, take some time to send a few texts or make a few phone calls to spread the love and support.

All Wrapped Up

Everyone's favorite dress (which is currently 40% off... run don't walk!) is one of my most versatile pieces. It can go from weekend fun with friends or even to the office. I'm actually rocking this dress under a blazer in my professional headshot at work and on LinkedIn. I also love that you can throw on a blanket scarf in the colder months or scoop up the long sleeved version to keep warm. Hands down most versatile (and comfortable) dress ever!
