Our first stop was a private island near the Bahamas.  We spent the day playing in the water, reading magazines and sipping margaritas.  It was the perfect kick off to our event-filled vacation.

You may have seen my packing list last week, but if you missed it, my carry-on was full of white pieces that I could mix and match.  There is something so casual and cool about an all white ensemble.  Lately, I have been especially obsessed with off the shoulder tops (I brought three…excessive? I think not).  I scooped up this one on sale right before I left. I love how it is a little structured, so it can be worn casual with shorts or in a dressier setting tucked into a skirt.  Another thing I could not live without on this trip was my Mar y Sol Beach bag.  It made for the perfect travel companion and was the perfect size for a towel, magazines and the rest of my beach essentials.

As your reading this I am currently sitting on the beach (drink in hand, obviously) and enjoying the sandy beach in the Bahamas. I will be spending the week in the Caribbean with Mackenzie for a girls trip! We will be soaking up the sun, swimming with dolphins and boating to St. Barth’s. My goal for this trip was to pack for eight days in my new carry on suitcase and it was a complete success.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@adashofdetails) and Snapchat to see behind the scenes shenanigans from our trip.

And it’s Friday…whew, this week was a doozy guys! Between working long nights, keeping on my work out schedule and preparing for my trip (so excited, we leave on Sunday!), I am so excited for the weekend.  Not to mention, Dallas is supposed to be 75 degrees on Saturday.  I will be spending as much time outside with Molly,  Zoey and my hubs (if you don’t know already they are our sweet goldendoodles that blow up my Instagram feed and Snapchat).  Being gone for a full week has me like… the extremely happy emojii, but making sure everything is in order before I leave has me reaching for a margarita tonight.  Thankfully, Mackenzie and Will are coming over for a Mexican fiesta tonight.

Also, can we talk about this outfit? I am in some form of this outfit every weekend.  Stripes, my favorite skinny jeans and a little cashmere.  Pretty much perfection in my mind.  What is your ideal weekend casual look?
