The Warm Weather Itch .



Once Upon a time, I wished for this... (see above.)


Okay, so it's about that time people.
It is time for a mother-flippin' getaway!

If you have yet to book this years getaway, it's the time of year to do itttt! 
Why be knee-deep in snow, when you could be surrounded by turquoise water and room service. 

Last year I adventured to Cabo with my boyfriend and two good friends, and this year I was thinking possibly Nueva Vallarta, Mexico or perhaps Sao Paulo, Brazil. :D 
Unfortunately, I won't be escaping the New York cold for spring break this year, but hopefully will be booking for late spring!  
As I've been getting older I've decided one big getaway vaycay is pretty much a necessity to one's own sanity and therefore benefits the well-being of one's loved ones. 

Now- when vacation time rolls around, I think we can all agree the point is to not worry about anythinggg; "j u s t  b e  h a p p y".   
So why be bothered worrying about creating  fab getaway gear, do yourself a favor: save your money for fun; and you can never have enough poolside beverages.  
I'm only going to sample a few basic looks from my trip here, but as you'll notice I used the same pair of wedges for going out for dinner and drinks. 
Try to make outfits using the same 2 to 4, pairs of shoes, although I'm one to talk about over-packing (ha!), but packing light is crucial to avoid those heavy luggage charges and maximizing fiscally responsible, fabulous looks.
Now as I stated in my preface, some items can just not be faked
(Therefore...With the exception of the SW wedges, MK Bag, and 2 pairs of Ray Ban sunglasses*)
 Almost all the outfits are $45 and under, also all these looks can be created with or without the above mentioned pieces.         


LOOK ONE:

Just arrived; In desperation of dinner noms:
 Jet-lagged like a Motherrrr..
Super Comfy attire is a necessity,
a well-fitted look was ensued. 

Mossimo Orange & Turquoise Sundress: $24
Can't beat target's summer dress selection at this price point, 
every year they put out a few great patterns
with great fits & this particular one is a ridiculously soft material. 

paired with -
70's B&L Vintage Ray Bans $230*
Bundle of Tiny Turquoise Beaded Necklaces $7
Xhilaration Gold Braided Sandals: $14

You can never have too many wedges.
The perfect thing to make a causal outfit a little more chic.

through dinner and more drinks.
& you'll look awesome without trying too hard.
