Treasures From The Bay

We just got back from Cape Cod this past weekend and it was honestly the best family vacation we’ve had thus far! (and yes we’ve done Disney lol) The weather could not have been more perfect, sunny or beautiful. The water was deliciously warm and I am so delighted that we are making this a yearly family tradition. As big animal lovers, visiting the seals and whales in their natural environment was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Spending the day in Provincetown was another highlight thanks to some unique shops and galleries. One of my favorite spots was Wild Rice… a boutique housing vintage jewelry as well as gorgeously vibrant prints shown in the picture above. I bought a convertible skirt with a navy blue polka dot print on one side and purple flowers on the other. Love it!!! I can’t wait to see what other pieces the store holds for me next Summer.

What do you find yourself looking/shopping for while on vacation?

{Pinning} Pretty in Pink

It is possible that I’m still in shock that it’s Monday… I’m not sure I even recognized that there was a weekend to be had! Summer is definitely in full swing and with such comes crazy-buys days whether it be Saturday or Sunday.  Today I have a to-do list that is at least 3 miles long but alas I’m happily blogging about my repeat obsession with pink. While I have toned down the wearing of such for myself I just love having two daughters so I can keep the color alive! I am so drawn to all shades of pink and some of my favorite pins are filled with it.

* Pretty in Pink is definitely one of my fave movies of all time because I can’t help but adore the 80’s version of Molly Ringwald and all her fashionable glory at that time. (still love how she would stick 2 pairs of earrings in one hole to sassy up her look) 🙂 *

Weekly Wonders: Summer Dresses

I suppose it was bound to happen… a pin board devoted to dresses that is. Summer is a mere 19 days away if we are going to be precise about it and yet the warmth of such is already here.  Therefore I have been given more than the permission I need to frolic around in beautiful, floral fabrics right?

Creation of a new board started when I was having a bit of fun over at Polyvore and came across the above VIVIENNE WESTWOOD ANGLOMANIA short dress. Immediately I was in love with the bright colors and simple design that made this dress seem like a staple for my Summer wardrobe.  However at $580 I’m going to have to put it to rest for the time being and search out similar floral designs that are more within my $$ range. Thankfully I found OASIS:

Floral Belted Dress $90

Vintage Rose Dress $145

Blue Floral Sundress $36

Placement Floral Dress $90

Oasis Paisley Dress $85

Aren’t these dresses charming? I can’t help but adore the splash of flowers and colors on each and how affordable they are too. For a limited time it appears that you can save even more with the following code:

How cool is that?  Have fun shopping!

“The richest ornament of women.”

A quote from Martin Luther… “The Hair is the richest ornament of women.”  I find myself liking this more and more since lately I’ve been very intrigued by hair jewelry. Beautiful hair accents have been making waves on the red carpet as well and I can’t even begin to decide which are my absolute faves. From gorgeous necklaces wrapped around buns or braids to jeweled clips and floral barrettes adorning the hair I am quickly becoming a fan and on the prowl for some new ways to spice up my own do!

Which are your favorite looks & have you found some fun new toys for your hair that you would love to share? Over the next couple of days I plan on searching my little heart out for some accessories that catch my eye and will happily share with you soon.  In the meantime check out my pin board of Sassy Hairstyles & Accessories !

Cape Cod Inspired
Tomorrow morning we book our first trip to Cape Cod and all are excited! This place holds some wonderful memories for my husband when he was a child. He seems quite eager to share this experience with our 3 kids and see if we collectively agree that this should be adopted as a yearly tradition. I for one am excited for some real beach fun in the sun, instagram shares and whale watching of course!

Do you have a traveling tradition of your own?
