Summer Dreaming: Resort Faves

Happy Tuesday!  I apologize for the week away!  For as long as I’ve been blogging, almost eight years now, I don’t think I’ve ever taken as long of a break.  But for me, it was needed.  I took time to prioritize and get on a routine.  Finally.  Also, thanks so much to so many of you that reached out.  Don’t worry, I’m still here and am make to regular posting.  Promise!

I kept saying I’d start afresh in the new year, but the new year brought snow and a delayed start to school.  Don’t get me wrong, we had the best time, but it led to procrastination.  But after this past week, I couldn’t put it off any longer.  I went to bed earlier, started exercising, eating healthier and you know what, it felt great!  I’ve been waking up ready for the day.  On most cold days I’d much rather snuggle under the covers and hit snooze a few too many times.  But now I’ve been wanting to get the day started and so ready for it!

I’ll be posting about what I’ve been doing to get in shape soon, but today, it’s all about wishing for warmer weather.  It’s still pretty chilly here.  I know, I know.  It’s all relative.  Chilly in Charleston, SC is nowhere near the chilly in say, Wisconsin, but it’s still cold enough for jackets and I’m over it.  I want sun and sand and swimsuits and shorts, etc.  Okay, so I’m probably not quite ready for bathing suit season yet, but the others, I’m yearning for it.

So today, I’m bringing you my favorite resort pics, in case you want to dream, shop for spring/summer early, start making your wish list, you’re lucky enough to be going on vacation…or actually live in warmer weather.  Enjoy!

Copper Sunnies

Y’all know I’m addicted to sunglasses.  Love the copper lens on these and the price is great too.  I have these in a different color combo and love the shape!

Clear/Blue Sunnies

These are really fun too!  Would be great for the beach/pool!

Spotted Bikini Top

I have this style bikini top in a few colors and just love this new print so much.  I was worried it would be see through since it’s light pink, but the liner is a fun orange color.

Coil Ring

I love anything rose gold when the weather warms up.  I’ve had this ring for awhile now and it’s a great toss-on with anything you’re wearing.

Pink Tassel Cover-Up

You knew I couldn’t leave out my forever favorite cover-up!  I always get a new color each year and this light pink one is definitely on my wish list.

Beach Strand Necklace

Light enough to toss on with a simple white tee or just about anything you’re wearing on vacation.


I haven’t tried this lip color yet, but it promises to add a touch of color to your lips with SPF too.

Rose Gold Bracelet

My love for my rice beads lasts all year long.  Love this simple bracelet in rose gold.  Would make a great gift too – Valentine’s Day, perhaps?

Blue Stripe Dress

This dress is so popular that it’s almost completely sold out at Nordstrom.  But I found it here too, and it’s currently available in all sizes!  Such a classic dress and I love the chain strap detail!

Sun Straw Tote

I know this cute little sunny straw tote won’t last long.  Especially love that the inside is hot pink!

Oribe Swept Up

This is a new product by Oribe and I can’t wait to try it!  I swear my entire collection is Oribe but there’s a reason I love it.  It works wonders and it smells amazing!

Star Necklace

Many of you asked about this necklace that I wore this past Saturday night.  It’s so simple, but I love it!

Wooden Clutch

I got this clutch right before Spring Break last year and I can’t wait to pull it out again.  Very lightweight and just a fun clutch to carry.

Ballet Rose Flip Flops

I mentioned these flip flops last week.  They’re priced so well and this is the newest color.  Not as golden as the rose gold, more on the pink side.

Pink Wedges

I have the tan ones in these from last year and seriously wore them all the time.  So excited that they came out in pink!

Pink Feather Studs

And speaking of pink, how pretty are these studs?  You know I’m obsessed with this style right now.  Especially love them because they’re super lightweight!

Pink Studs

I picked these up last week at a local store here and have already worn them so much.  So excited that Kendra Scott came out with such a pretty pink for Spring.  Another Valentine’s Day gift?

I guess I’m on a pink kick right now, or okay, maybe all the time!  But I really do LOVE everything here!  What’s your favorite?  Are y’all like me and ready for winter to hurry up and go away?

I’ll be sharing what we’ve been up to lately on tomorrow’s post, so stay tuned!  Hope y’all are having a great week so far!
