Rainbow Maxi {What I’m Wearing Wednesday}

Dress

I am sure it is pretty obvious by now that I love color.  I always feel happier and more at ease when I am draped in a colorful dress or jumpsuit.  My go-to for my colorful outfits has always been Lilly Pulitzer and although I still adore all of the Lilly prints, I have found a new love for Blue Door Boutique and Red Dress Boutique.  If you are searching for amazing pieces at incredible prices, these online shops will be your new go-to.

Six Budget-Friendly Champagnes you Need for your Next Celebration

Any type of celebration can be considered incomplete without a bottle of Champagne to mark the occasion. Weddings, birthdays, proposals, promotions: all occasions to pop a bottle of bubbly. Champagne and celebration can be considered virtually synonymous.

I am most certainly a lover of a chilled glass of bubbly; I also appreciate quality and substance. That being said, not everyone can afford to crack open a bottle of Dom when their anniversary rolls around. A great bottle of Champagne doesn’t have to break the bank, that’s why I’ve put together this list of some of the most deliciously well-made bottles you can find, all under $40. If you ask me, that’s cause for celebration, am I right?

Nordstrom Sale Must-Haves {Clothes, Shoes and Accessories}

I have been shopping the Nordstrom sale for a couple of years now and I always get so excited to see what items are available.  I live in Florida and we don’t get a lot of cooler weather so a lot of the items are hard to justify because they are more fall/winter pieces.  Also, I usually save up all my money for the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale (SO soon!) so I don’t invest a lot in the #nsale unless I see pieces that will get a lot of use.  This year, I only purchased a couple of pieces but I saw SO many more that I wanted in my closet.  Here are some of my favorites! Did you purchase anything in the Nordstrom sale this year?

 

Weekend Away at Longboat Key Club

My hubby and I are always so busy that we are always looking for ways to sneak away with the family and enjoy some much-deserved beach time!  Breathing in the salty air and feeling the sand in your toes has a therapeutic feeling that can recharge you in ways you can’t imagine.

Living outside of Orlando, we have access to so many weekend getaway spots.  We are so lucky to have some of the most beautiful beach towns within a short drive. When searching for the perfect weekend spot for Father’s Day, I knew we wanted to try somewhere new.  A girlfriend suggested Longboat Key Club and after looking at the website, I was sold.

When we pulled through the gate to the private entrance of the Longboat Key Club, we were greeted with plush landscaping, a friendly staff and the most beautiful views of blue and green water.  We planned to arrive early so our room wasn’t ready yet, but that didn’t stop us from heading right down to the beach and the pool.  The front desk gave us a temporary card so we could take advantage of all the amenities while we waited for our room to be ready.
