Warmin' Up

Just a quick little post today since I just got back from Siesta Key. I thought I'd be coming back to a warm spring, but apparently Mother Nature thinks it's still March! Oh well, eighty-degree weather can't be too far away now, can it?

When it does finally get hot, I'll be living in this Forever21 cropped tank and last year's Free People Lace Shorts. With high-waisted shorts and a (spray) tan, crops are way less intimidating than I thought!

This week, I've been relaxing down on Siesta Key, Florida! With it's 99% pure quartz sand, Siesta Key Beach is often recognized as one of the best beaches in the US, so I've been spending a lot of time lying on the beach! Yes, it's okay to be jealous. Eighty-five degrees and sunny is a really nice break from this chilly spring with nary a flower blossom in sight. I love to travel light but there a few beach bag essentials that I absolutely must have for a day on the sand!

First off, extra bikini bottoms are absolutely necessary. I try to find black ones because it will go with pretty much any top but a pattern is always fun too. Soften Her's handy pads exfoliates skin to prevent in grown hairs and razor bumps. When hair does grow back, it's noticeably softer and smoother so you can stretch out time between shaves and waxes! 

You know Giselle's glorious, beachy waves? She doesn't actually get those from swimming in the sea. Shocking, I know. But it takes a lot of work to emerge with mermaid locks. Post shower, I spritz my hair with John Frieda's Beach Blonde Sea Waves. It smells amazing and I get light waves without any of the usual frizz. Finally, if I've been baking in the sun for too long, I rely on the After-Sun Gelee by Michael Kors to sooth my skin. The earthy, citrus scent makes it easy to go right from the beach to dinner. What will be in your beach bag this summer?

Guys, for a fashion blogger, I'm not very adventurous, but you probably know that by now! I've always felt that I didn't know how to wear a jumpsuit or romper. But the warm weather is really inspiring me to break out of my shell! It turns out that slipping into a jumpsuit is just as easy a favorite spring dress! All you need is the right accessories and you're ready to go. Five minutes and done? Yes, please!

Today, I wore it out for the first time and actually felt like a real grown up. With a pair of nude heels and dramatic drop earrings, I went exploring. Have you ever noticed this Japanese-inspired home hidden away off of Charles St., looking over the river? It's my favorite spot in the entire city.

Yellow Mellow Spring

Sunday Splurge, Spring Outfits, Boston Fashion, Boston Fashion Blog, Boston Blogger, Shopping, Online Shopping, Yellow Dresses, Spring 2015 Trends, How To Wear Yellow, Kimono Dresses, Kimonos

I'm not sure if it's the sunshine or my trip to Florida, but suddenly I want every little thing in my life to be yellow. Yellow flowers, yellow hair, yellow shoes and, yes, yellow dresses. I've always thought that since I'm so pale and blonde that yellow wasn't really an option for me.

How wrong I've been! With a little bit of bronzer and a red lip, a blonde can wear anything, right? And this River Island Kimono is literally everything I've ever wanted in a daytime dress.

What are you splurging on this weekend?
