I am back from my New England family vacation today. You can check out some vacay pics on Instagram. It was amazing. We spent first half of the week exploring beach towns and swimming in the Atlantic and the other half of the week taking in the sights of majestic mountain ranges. It was so relaxing to be in all that natural beauty. And now it’s a working Monday today, but I can’t seem to turn off the relaxed mode. So I am dressed like it’s still the weekend. It is summer after all and no one is going to stop me. Plus I added the necklace to make it weekday fancy. And hey it works for my vacation withdrawal syndrome! 🙂 Continue reading

Another upside to a white dress? You can wear it virtually anywhere — except to a wedding that is not yours. But other than that white dresses for summer — I vote yes. Continue reading
On my recent western Caribbean cruise, we stopped over in Progreso, Mexico where I had the pleasure to go see the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza – one of the wonders of the world. The historic architecture had so many intriguing stories to share. It was a larger than life experience just being around the beautiful temples and learning about the Mayan culture. We did a detailed tour of the ruins and spent rest of the afternoon shopping the local treasures. This trend-right romper in it’s Southwest-inspired print and warm hues made the perfect outfit for the hot day. Continue reading
