My vacation blues were in full effect this week after 7 days in the Caribbean with Mackenzie. I am happy to say we made it to the weekend! Not only do I plan to spend the entire weekend outside (thank you for the perfect weather, Dallas) but its also Valentine’s Day. If we were going out for Valentine’s Day, I would definitely be wearing this dress. Instead, we will be in our PJ’s cooking dinner together and watching our favorite movies- it has become a tradition the last few years. I am kind of loving that Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday because it is the perfect excuse to stay in bed all day.
A few things I am loving this week:
I am so excited to get crafty this weekend. My best friends Garden party Bridal shower is next weekend and we are in charge of decor (my favorite task of all time). If you are looking for the perfect personalized gift for a bride-to-be, these would be the perfect gift to go along with some gold flatware.
Happy Friday, Loves!

“She loved the ocean because every time the waves left the shore, they always came back.”-unknown
As I laid in the sand with the waves crashing at my feet, a slew of memories rushed in. I don’t know if it was the sounds of the water or the sun shining down on my skin but I felt at peace. My anxiety washed away with each passing wave and I allowed my mind to wander. So many thoughts came to the surface. Thoughts about my goals, my relationship and where I see my life in the next 10 years. For the first time in a while, I allowed my mind to wander to creative places and found new inspiration. I know it is not just me, but I get so caught up in my daily routine that I don’t allow myself to fully let go. So as I sat there in the sand watching each wave leave the shore, I let those little things go, and made room in my life for something new.
We had the best day on Saint-Jean beach in St. Barth’s. Stay tuned for later this week, I will be sharing a guide to 5 hours on the island. Everyone had to drag me back onto the boat. I could have stayed on that island forever. I wore my new Marysia bikini the entire day with a high waisted maxi skirt and sandals. To say I am obsessed with my new suit would be an understatement. I have been lusting over Marysia’s designs for over 2 years now and I finally decided this girls trip was the perfect time to pick it up. I contemplated on getting this one piece, but Mackenzie talked me into the bikini with a quote from her Grandy- “You have your entire life to wear a one-piece, wear a bikini while you can.” She really is a genius.

We were up bright and early when the boat docked on St. Thomas. Mackenzie and I were pretty excited about our excursion for the day: swimming with dolphins. Naturally, we had to grab a few ice coffees before hoping off the boat (a necessary stop after a few too many glasses of rosé the night before). Swimming with dolphins has always been on my bucket list, so you can imagine my excitement when Mackenzie told me we were hoping on a small boat to check it off my list. I have to say, it exceeded my expectations. The dolphins were so smart and friendly and the entire time I was in the water, I looked like a kid in a candy store.
When packing for this trip, I knew I had to bring my Rag and Bone romper I scooped up at Intermix last year during my surprise birthday trip to West Palm Beach. Thankfully for you guys, it is still available at a few stores and I am thinking about getting the marigold color too because I wore this one all summer long. The silk and classic silhouette make it so easy to throw on but still look put together.
