Sails, Sun, & Sand








bathing suit & coverup (Galt Ocean c/oCoverup), hat (HM, see similar HERE), rings (Lagos, Anna Beck), shades (Ray Ban ON SALE), watch (Daniel Wellington)

I promise I'll do my best to not rub it in for my fellow Kentuckians and pals in the cooler states, but I  more or less have lived in a bathing suit for the last week and it. has. been. fantastic.   Coming home is such fuel for my soul and this trip has been no exception.   We've spent the majority of our trip outside be it on the water or even horseback riding and it's been lovely!  Sharing this Galt Ocean REVERSIBLE bikini and here's why I'm loving it...it's a two in one meaning you're getting more bang for your buck with the navy on one side, and an adorable print on the opposite side---such great quality that does not 'pinch' my sides---I carry my weight in my hips and backside so I always struggle to find bottoms that 'lay' on my hips and don't pinch..these suckers do it!   My guy and I are headed to the beach for New Years this year so I'm on the hunt for one more suit to bring along with us--and some shades which btw my AVIATORS ARE ON SALE--take a look at the top contenders below.  Alright gang, cheers to a lovely Sunday...we're going to soak up our last few hours of sunshine before heading back to the Bluegrass.  Make it a great one!

Poncho Love





poncho (Julie Brown c/o), leggings ( SPANX see similar HERE & HERE), bag (Clare Viver, love this NAVY versionClutch Version), flats (Loeffler Randall), rings (Shine on Vine, Anna Beck), watch (Daniel Wellington c/o)

This is my first rodeo with a PONCHO and I have to say I'm hooked.  They're super cozy and have a knack for slenderizing ya down on the bottom half because there's so much volume up top.  I did a little browsing and found some other ponchos I'd like to add to the collection (Exhibit AExhibit B)--feel free to peruse below.  Alright gang, taking the bunnies to the beach--soaking up our last few days of this gorgeous weather!  Y'all make it a good one!

Every Which Way








leggings (Tuckernuck c/o how cute are these CAMO's), coat (J.Crew), sweater (French Connection ON SALE), handbag (Clare Vivier), gloves (Target see SIMILAR), beanie (Similar), shades (Bloomingdales), sneaks (Converse)

So here's how I make a Beanie look less adolescent on me---pair it with a tailored Coat and a classically shaped Handbag and voila...grunge is balanced by some classic pieces!  I adore a good beanie...so much so I've plucked a few I'm loving below.  I am also adoring these Leggings from Tuckernuck --the tuxedo stripe adds just the right graphic vibe I've come to love (ps--how cute would these Camos look with an oversized Chambray and white Chucks).  Alright gang, feel free to shop some cozy beanies below---y'all enjoy your Thursday--make it a good one!

So Slouchy









turtleneck (Talbots 40% OFF , 50% off this KNITadore this SALE PONCHO), jeans (Gap these sold out but see similar steal HERE and sale splurges HERE & HERE), heels (Kate Spade on SALE), bag (GiGi New York c/o), watch (Daniel Wellington c/o), ring (Anna Beck), shades (Ray Ban)

I could live in this look, except let's sub these Navy Croc Heels with my fave new Leo Ballets, and I'd literally wear this number everyday (which if you saw me last week, I pretty much did).  There's something so effortless about slouchy pieces--little tip is make sure to roll the cuffs and show a little ankle--just a little hint of skin to ensure the look isn't sloppy.  Essentially I'm just wearing a whole heap of navy in this look but the various textures (pom pomscroc, & python) add elements of interest to keep her from looking dull.  
Alright gang, I went ahead and added a few other similar knits and boyfriends below (Cable Poncho & Distressed on SALE)--feel free to shop 'em below.  Y'all enjoy your Tuesday--make it a good one!
