it’s nearly the time of year holiday parties begin to consume our nights + weekends. although, you will not hear me complaining about scrumptious cocktails, plentiful food, and amazing company. you do not want to show up empty handed. so for my first gift guide of the year, I’ve dedicated it to the host of the best party you’ll attend this holiday season. or better, to every single one of them because you don’t have a boring party on your calendar.
if I were stranded on a deserted island going on vacation and could only bring one outfit, it’d be this. I could rave for days about maxi skirts [+ dresses]. paired with this beautiful floral top. it easily takes me from an afternoon wandering main street + it’s shops, to a nice dinner with my fiance.
it’s almost memorial day weekend. and here in iowa that means, the pool is opening!
I don’t know what I have against lounging poolside during the warm summer days, but I rarely ever do it. this year, I’m giving myself no choice. I already packed my bag. as if I was expecting a child, and must rush to the hospital at any unexpected moment. but this is my pool bag. that will remain sitting in our coat closet, ready for that unexpected day that the sun is shining & I am not busy.
my snow white skin needs to be introduced to the sun before it visits the dominican republic. basically I don’t want to be ghostly white or a lobster on my wedding day. please.
what’s in my bag.
bikini top + bottom // the fewer the straps the better. crazy tan lines you’re not my friend.
