Wednesday Wishlist : Tropical Wishes

I feel like I’m not alone in dreaming of being on a warm vacation by the beach. Ahhhh…sigh.  I chose some florals, some vibrant hues and breezy pieces.  (And isn’t that Mara Hoffman one-piece to die for?) Now close your eyes, picture yourself wearing these, sipping on a umbrella-clad drink and tanning your super-pale self (c’mon, I know I’m not alone with that one).  Don’t forget the fabulous warm weather choices for a night out too!  Tropical Wishes

Wednesday Wishlist: Neutralizing Spring

While I cannot wait to jump headfirst into spring, I’m having some separation anxiety with my winter-neutrals.  What’s a girl to do?  Simple.  Bring those hue-free items into the warmer months in lighter, more airy pieces while still holding on to some of those heavier layers to keep you cozy during this awkward sometimes-warm-sometimes-cold transitional period.  Here are some of my favorite that I cannot wait to add to my closet!

Spring Neutrals

Happy Saturday!

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far! I know I am, considering the fact that I checked my back account this morning and, “hello tax return!” That totally means crossing some much-wanted needed things off of my wish lists!

Will definitely be looking in to some things from the new Madewell catalog!

Other than that, hope to have another post or two up later this weekend. Enjoy everyone!

Looking for some spring inspiration from the pastels collection, for sure! (And sipping on an iced latte from a cute coffee shop near me!)

Mara Hoffman for Madewell

Even though I am currently looking out my window to see snow falling, it will not stop me from dreaming of summer days by the pool and on the beach.  So what automatically comes to mind?  Swimwear, of course!  While Madewell is much better known for it’s denim and preppy clothing, they have incorporated the designs of Mara Hoffman into their swimwear this season.  Bright prints with retro yet up-to-date cuts, there is something for every girl!  Check out some of my favorites below!
