Beach Ready


dress: juicy couture {old; similar here + here} | hat: anthropologie | sandals: american eagle {old} | sunglasses: prada | lips: viva glam nicki by mac 

I have been in vacation mode all week and I’m so not ready to come back to reality.
Love these gorgeous palms, the water, hot sand and the sunshine…oh the sunshine!

In my next life, I’d like to be a mermaid (or a better surfer).
I tried my hand at paddle boarding finally. It’s a balancing act, but so much fun. If you have a beachy vacation planned this year, I definitely recommend it (in addition to surfing, if you haven’t done either). Something about spending a few hours in my rash guard and the salty sea water just makes all my troubles go away.

Have a great weekend. Thanks so much for reading.
Oh, and go here to see if you won the Happy Wrist giveaway!

  5. Kauai is one of my favorite places ever. We are going to Maui & Kona next week and I can't wait. Paddleboarding is one of the first things we do when we get there. It's so fun and relaxing – and a good workout!

    I'm obsessed with your hat. I saw it in store and thought about getting it, but thought I wouldn't know bow to wear it. You look so cute!

    Love these pictures! The bright yellow of your coverup is perfect for this time of year. I wish I could be on vacation, too. I would love to be out on the beach somewhere right now! Also, great hat
