Living in a permanent vacay mindset, always. The first time I went to Balboa Island was with Melayne and here we are again. Like Phoenix, the weather hasn’t quite changed with the season in the OC and I kinda don’t mind.

Lilly Pulitzer just released their Luxe Escapes new arrivals and I’m swooning over so many of their styles. I’m dying for Benjamin to book a resort vacation now. He’s been talking about it for a while and I think he deserves, I mean we, deserve a beach vacay this summer. *wink*

I was recently featured in Uptown Magazine, a profile on my travels and how blogging and traveling has influenced my fashion sense and it was kinda funny because I didn’t realize the way I answered the questions hinted that I usually wear neutrals daily but when traveling, I wear bright colors. It’s so true!

Lip colors and bright colored outfit are so meant for vacays wherever you go – and they look especially perfect on sunny vacations. Love this silk tank I used to wear silk in junior high, yep I was that fancy kid.

I have a funny story about the Rebecca Minkoff pom bracelet I’m wearing. When I bought it online I thought it was a necklace and when it arrived I was like hey this thing shrunk and that was so expensive for a bracelet. You should get it because it’s on sale now and it really is darling even as a bracelet lol. I guess I didn’t read it very closely.

Now how do I get back to work when my mind is always on vacay? ;)
