Happy Monday fam! I am waking up again today in lovely St. Croix, and am thoroughly enjoying my time here! I touched upon this on Instagram, but I am with my friend Natalia housesitting in St. Croix as a graduation trip (not a bad gig, right?). We spent the weekend exploring the island, including various beaches and snorkeling spots! Me being a mess; on the way back to the shore while snorkeling I was stung by a jellyfish, spasmed, got stung again on my leg, and booked it to the shore. Such grace, right? Fingers crossed that that’s it for injuries for the week. Natalia and I are – hopefully – going to head down to the beach in the early morning to catch the sunrise, then head to a new beach for the afternoon!
Thanks for reading dolls, hope you all had a good weekend!
Hello there dolls! I know this dress is old and I am SO sorry for that, butttt I am not an orange wearing person and Turks was the perfect place (for me) to rock it. However, my sandals are fully in stock and get more comfy every time they are worn! I’ve never had a pair of Jack Rogers before these, and the leather really just gets comfier and comfier as they are broken in.
In other news, today is a VERY big day! If you follow other bloggers, you know that Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicks off today. If you aren’t familiar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, here a few things to note:
1) Early access for the sale is July 13th-20th, and is for Nordstrom card holders only. I actually applied for my first Nordstrom card last week, and got accepted to it’ll be my first year shopping the sale early access!
2) Don’t worry if you don’t have early access. It’s great if there are pieces that sell out and don’t get restocked until fall (when the prices go back up), but most items that sell out during early access are restocked when the actual sale begins.
3) It’s Essentially a Pre-Season Sale. Think trench coats, sweaters, basics, boots, etc. Nordstrom’s fall line is what is primarily part of the sale, and prices go up to their “normal” set cost once the sale is over.
4) It’s Nordstrom’s Best Sale of the Year. That being said, just because it’s on sale doesn’t mean you should buy it. Try to focus on items you need that are part of the sale; think basics or essentials like denim, tunics, tees, sweaters. Shop these items first so you get what you need, then budget for splurges or fun items!
I have linked some of my initial #NSale picks in the widget below.. as always happy shopping!
Happy Monday dolls! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.. I spent mine lounging in Niantic with my boyfriend and our group of friends. We had a blast, and nothing is worse than getting back to reality on Mondays. BUT, in an attempt to brighten up the day, I am sharing this darling top! It’s even prettier in person; the detailing (the sleeves, the tassels, and the material) is gorg. You can shop it here from PB&J Boutique! These jeans are also gems. They’re not at all see-through and are at a good price point.
In other news, I am heading out of the country on Wednesday (again, I know, I feel like such a travel snob right now but I am loving every second of it). It’s another tropical location, and I am going with one of my best friends this round!
First things first; today is my brother’s 21st birthday, so I just wanted to give Tommy a shoutout and say happy 21st Tom Tom! He took these pictures, so it’s the least I can do 😉 . I had been on the hunt for a good one piece, and finally scored when I ordered this one. I did size up to a large; I had initially ordered a medium but there was a bit too much side boob action, so I sized up for a smidge more coverage. The palm print is dreamy and the lace-up back is perfect to sinch one’s waist!
Throughout my week on vacation, I felt like the pom-pom queen. Between this dress and this cover up, I was well stocked. They just add the perfect little touch to anything, especially whilst on an island. Boohoo is also currently offering 50% off everything with code “GIMME50”, so you can snag these items for half the price!
How many of you guys have today off?! I am heading to the beach for the day with a few friends, and am looking forward to doing some reading and getting reacquainted with a Connecticut beach (because we all need a dose of reality after paradise, right?) 😉
Happy Friday!!! Today I wanted to share my first outfit post from Turks and Caicos, featuring this romper! I am obsessed with the textured pom pom print, and knew the second I received it that I wanted to photograph it in front of this map mural. I’m not sure if I have mentioned it, but this was actually my second trip to Turks and Caicos. The first time I went was for my high school graduation, whereas this round was to celebrate my mom’s birthday and my college graduation! I mention this just so no one thinks I was like low key scouting picture places (which I haveee done in other instances, no shame in this game); I just love all the shades of blue in this mural. It perfectly resembles the bright blue hues of the coastline. I also want to mention that my Pura Vida Bracelets always accompany any bracelet stack of mine when the temps heat up, they are the perfect summer accessory!
If there is one thing I mention frequently it’s how much I love New England. Although I have never lived anywhere else, I cannot even begin to imagine doing so. Connecticut is my home, and as much as I adore traveling it is the place I will forever come back to. I recently stumbled upon The Home T, and knew immediately that I needed their CT shirt! Their tee’s are oh so soft and go by unisex sizing, which I actually prefer since it creates the perfect amount of slouch. They also have a castle tee, which I am not-so-secretly eyeing for my next Disney trip..
Speaking of coming home to Connecticut, I also have some exciting news for you all. I shared it briefly on my Instagram Story, but I am heading out of CT on Sunday and will be traveling to Turks & Caicos! Although I have been before, I am so excited to experience Turks once again with my fam. One funny thing to note; when my family finds something that we like, we stick to it. Whether it be movies (I rewatch movies I love over and over again, Viktor doesn’t understand why and I honestly don’t have a good reason), food, or vacations, we love habit. Not only did my mom book the same hotel we stayed at last time, but I am 99% sure we are staying in the same exact room as last time. Gotta love it.
Have a good weekend lovelies!

SHOP THE POST
This post was in collaboration with The Home T, all opinions are my own.
How cute is this palm print romper?! I am obsessed with palm print and have been trying to snag it as often as possible, so when I saw this romper I was smitten. I will say that it runs small, as some of Shein‘s sizing varies. I ordered based on measurements, but should have gone up a size so it’d be a bit longer and looser.
Hope everyone’s week is going well! Thanks for stopping by.
This is a dress that I always find myself throwing on for a quick errands venture! Although it’s June, it’s naturally still chilly in Connecticut; for example, the high for yesterday was 57 degrees. The long sleeves and comfy material are ideal for cooler summer days. I also wear these sandals more frequently than I thought I would, definitely worth the investment!
I have been looking for a new chambray shirt for awhile now, and I feel like this one is the kind of shirt that you don’t know you need! The denim feels super broken in, it’s the ideal amount of slouchy, and the ripped hems and distressed detailing is oh so cool. The best part? It’s on sale for under $25 (do I even let you guys down with sale items? I like to think I don’t and this shirt is a steal!). Make sure to scoop it up while it’s still available!
