Beach Trip Favorites

It was so nice getting away with Jordan last week for a beach trip.  I love getting to snag some quality time with J (no matter where the location), but especially when it’s on a beach! I styled quite a bit of swimmies that I wanted to share with you all, in case you’re heading somewhere warm soon.  All of the outfits are linked below, but I’m also going to chat a bit about the brands I find myself shopping for vacations and why!

Many of you all know my obsession with L*Space, but we’ll go ahead and talk about it anyways.  I love all of their swimsuits, loungewear, and coverups.  So high quality and they make me feel really confident when I’m wearing them (which is key in a good ‘kini!).  I paired this white bikini with some Ray Ban aviators (because can you really go on vacay without a classic pair of Ray Bans?!) and some minimal hoop earrings.  You’ll see a trend in these photos that I wear classic gold jewelry with everything.  They go well with swimsuits and for your date night outfit — which means, less packing! Gorjana is a brand I constantly turn to for minimal, yet high quality gold/silver/rose gold jewelry.  I have really sensitive ears too (I’m allergic to nickel) and they’ve never bothered me! Another great jewelry brand that I always turn to for layered gold necklaces, etc., is Shashi.

Although you can’t see it from this picture, I wore these slides everywhere! They’re great with bikinis and out and about + easy to clean off.  Sam Edelman always has amazing sandals for your beach vacay.

Naturally, I always grab my Karen Walker sunglasses when heading to the beach.  The thick tortoise frames make a statement, while also being extremely comfortable to wear all day long (with no marks on your nose!).

Another go-to I love is Free People for their oversized shirts and tunics, like this one.  I love being able to wear it unbuttoned over a swimsuit or wear it over a cami and jeans OR wear it as a top.  Versatility is key when packing and this one definitely made the cut.

I just recently discovered Norma Kamali items and let me tell you, I’m so glad I found it before this trip! This little sarong came in HANDY! I wore it as a sarong over swimsuits, while also wearing it as a shawl at night to dinner when we sat outside (it was just a little chilly). I had never been so happy that I packed an item!

Lastly, can’t forget about masks! Although I packed quite a few extra disposable ones, especially for when we were getting our Daily Burn in, I decided to pack some fun Maaji ones for the daytime, which have an amazing breathable material in the heat (plus fun prints like their swimsuits!) + some Z Supply masks that are classic solid colors to go with my outfits at night.

Any questions on any other outfits I wore on our trip? Leave them below!

    Hope you are having an awesome vacation and escape from winter. Love all of the bikinis especially the orange bikini. I can’t wait for vacation in March. For me its work out wear early, then bikinis and flip flops by day and sundresses or coverup dresses by night with heels.

10/27/18 Mr. & Mrs. White

There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t feel so blessed to be Jordan’s wife. He is my everything. These photos and video are the sweetest reminder of our love for one another. So, grab a cup of coffee, pull up a seat, and try not to bawl your eyes out (because I know we did). Every time we look through our photos and watch our video, we cry the happiest tears.

The Proposal

It’s crazy what can happen in a year. I met the love of my life and the rest is history. I was having a hard time ending this post, because frankly, I think I could talk about that evening forever. Then I realized that this post doesn’t have an ending, but instead, a beginning. Thank you so much for all of the love, excitement, and gratitude.

Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is bake my dark chocolate chip pumpkin bread! I’ve made it *so* many times for me, J, and friends & family. It’s moist, decadent, and super easy to make! It also makes for a great DIY housewarming gift.
