I know, I know. It’s been like, 100 years since my last actual blog post. Lately, I’ve been a lot more active on Instagram and even on Twitter. On the other hand, I’ve been neglecting this space. Whoops! I have plenty of excuses up my sleeve about why I haven’t posted, but at the end of the day, I just haven’t made it a priority. Yes, I’ve been busy, but my silence has been more about a lack of inspiration than a lack of time.
Can You Believe It’s Been Almost 5 Years?
Over the last few months, I’ve been thinking about doing a bit of a re-brand and/or re-design, but I’m not sure where I want to take things yet. I pressed publish on my first blog post almost 5 years ago – umm holy crap, that’s a long time ago! A lot has changed since then. Back when I started, Instagram wasn’t even a ‘thing.’ I also didn’t worry about SEO, total reach, or anything, really. I’m different than I was 5 years ago, too. My personality, interests and style have evolved. Like, let’s be real, I would NOT wear this outfit today. What was I thinking with those pants? I can assure you, they are long gone.
Spring Break Style
As you probably know if you follow me on Instagram, I was recently in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for a week. Most of the time, I was a sweaty, frizzy, make-up free mess, but I usually put together a cute outfit for dinner. This was a very simple outfit to wear on vacation, so I figured it would be perfect to share here!
Naturally, I did a bit of shopping before the trip. I loved having a reason to shop the new arrivals for spring! This button down top is one of the softest pieces I own, and I love how versatile it is. I wore it unbuttoned here, but it’s cute done up, tucked into a pair of jeans and finished with a bandana. These shorts are from American Eagle and are also incredibly comfortable. They’re great to throw on over a bathing suit and can easily be dressed up or down. You won’t notice in these pictures but I was comfortably wearing one of my One Piece Cheeky Swimsuits underneath all this ready for my time on the beach after the photoshoot!
