On My Wrist

My favorite things about watches are that they aren’t just for telling time. I have to admit, and my boyfriend makes fun of me all the time for it but I’ve worn watches many times even when the battery was dead. Don’t set a watch in the back corner of your drawer just because the battery died.
 A watch is an accessory, a bracelet, a beautiful time ticker. Ok, so what? I couldn’t make it to the shop to get my watch repaired. I’m still going to wear it! However, my watch in this picture is indeed functioning. 
All in all, this Michele watch is hands down my favorite piece I own. It has class with a sparkle. It’s practical and effortless. I pair it with whatever I can, and make sure that this one is always up and running. (And I'm always down for a fun skort)

Desert me

These past few days have been crazy busy! I need to remember to stop and enjoy life. This week I've been focusing on using my time wisely and really appreciating the minutes we are given here. 
While shooting this there was the most beautiful sunset just off to the right, over the water. If I hadn't been here I may have missed this work of art. Put on some flow-y pants and walk through life with your eyes open, catching every sunset.

My emphasis for this trip was to actually "vacation." Obviously I can't help myself from snapping a few pictures here and there, but I didn't allow myself to shoot for my blog or be working while I was here. Instead, I filled my days walking on beaches covered in beautiful shells for miles, sitting outside in the fresh air, island hopping (to Captiva, Gasparilla and North Captiva), and just relaxing. 

If you've never been to Captiva or Gasparilla Island add it to your next place to travel. Yes, it's hard to believe it is January and all I packed were bikinis, cover-ups and a new-year's eve outfit. But, that really is all you need on these islands....

Free me in Floral

Happy New Year! My first post of 2015. I am so thankful for an amazing past year and I look forward to this coming year; more posts, new bikinis, fun locations and a bunch of pictures. Get ready!

I absolutely adore a perfect floral dress. Sometimes its hard to find one that doesn't look like your grandmas curtains or bathroom wallpaper, but this Free people dress hits the spot. The best part is that floral, in my opinion, can be worn any time or any day. Pair it with a fun leather jacket and booties or with a casual pair of heels and mandatory accessories. 
Where have you found a floral print dress you couldn't live without?

Layered in leather

When I think- leather leggings- I think "hardcore biker chic." Who knows why. Lately, I've been venturing and exploring new trends, and I'm loving leather. This pair isn't too fierce, but still sends a message of "watch out I have my leather leggings on, its about to be a fun night - don't get in my way." What's something in your closet that may indiscreetly give you some confidence? If you don't own a pair of leather leggings/pants/shorts/skirt whatever, you should hop on my bandwagon asap.
