Palm Trees and Pretty Jewels

Saying goodbye to vacation is never easy. We had an amazing trip visiting my parents in Longboat Key, Florida last week, with a short stop in Disney to end the week. What a great time!

I'm embracing the 'loose' look, even though I've fought it for many seasons. Pairing an airy floral camisole with these shorts would have been too sloppy in the past, but... the 'loose layers' look is IN and I'm totally okay with it! The key to keeping this look together is the front-tuck (tucking just the front of the top into the bottoms).

Tank- Evereve (old but I found a similar one here)
Shorts- J.Crew (similar)
Sandals- Tory Burch
Clutch- Louis Vuitton
Sunglasses- SEE Eyewear

Spring Sandals... on SALE!

I think it's safe to say that the snow has finally melted for good and spring is here to stay!  I am packing away my boots and pulling out my sandals. Which always leads to an inspection round with each pair, while I'm deciding which sandals need to go in the donation bin and which ones have stood the test of time and countless steps. 

During the latest round of shoe scrutiny, I began to notice something about my sandals- now, this should come as no surprise, yet somehow baffled me at the time- the ones that seemed *crazy* to spend that much money on are the shoes in the most amazing shape still.  Surprise! Quality lasts.  (Duh. So simple, but so true.)    
That being said, shopping for sandals is one of my favorite ways to ring in the new season.  There are so many styles to pick from, it's hard to know where to start!  I am also always on the lookout for my favorite brands on sale...I'm excited to share that they now are!  Seriously, when can you buy your favorite brands, at the beginning of the season, on sale?! That's unheard of in my world.  The hardest part now is figuring out which ones to get!
