What I'm Wearing:
Sam & Libby Neveda Bow Sliders - Target* | Renegade Cluster Bracelet - Stella & Dot* Layer Flounce Striped Skew Collar Blouse (Blue Stripe) c/o RoseGal |  Apple Watch* | XXLarge Initial Necklace - ONecklace.com | Coral Clutch - Old (Similar, Similar)* | Maui Jim Baby Beach Aviator Sunglasses*

On our recent vacation to Mexico, I noticed that everything I set aside to pack was either blue, white or blue and white stripes. It worked out great, because I could pack similar shoes and jewelry that worked with all the pieces! I may need to remember this the next time I travel. It was funny... because, my husband packed a lot of blue and white items, too! GMTA, eh? If you haven't seen my Mexican vacation recap post yet on the lovely Secrets all inclusive resort we stayed at, be sure to check it out HERE. I'll have another recap post (the last one) tomorrow. Today I'm sharing this lovely one shoulder ruffle top from RoseGal (it's under $20!). This style of top is so popular this summer, that I had to have one of my very own for my summer wardrobe.

Secrets Maroma Vacation Recap - Days 1 & 2

MBeachDays1-2
A couple of weeks ago, Brian and I visited the beautiful Secrets Maroma resort for our first ever all inclusive vacation. We were looking for a relaxing vacation on the beach and we got exactly what we wanted. It was perfect. :) We had a shuttle that took us from the airport to the resort. Upon arrival at the resort, we received a glass of champagne with a cherry in it (yum!) and we checked in.

What I'm Wearing:
Acquainted Lace Peplum Top c/o Tobi | Kendra Scott Earrings - RocksBox | Blush Fringe Bag - H&M (old) |  Apple Watch | Strappy Gladiator Sandals - Charming Charlie (old) | White Shorts - Old Navy (Old) | White Pom Pom Hat - Here Today | Naomi Double Ring - Kendra Scott

While you are reading this, I'll be in Disney with the fam bam. Planning two vacations back to back is a little crazy, but with all of the kids summer activities it was the only way to do it. Don't worry, I'm having a BLAST. Today I'm sharing my last item from Tobi, which is an Acquainted Lace Peplum Top.

I don't normally let my bare belly show, but I like that this piece shows just a little with the sheer lace. And, it's perfect for hot summer days and you stay cool and chic! I paired it with some cuffed white shorts, a white pom pom hat, a blush fringe bag and gladiator sandals. I should have worn this look in Mexico!

Hey everyone! My husband and I just got back from a romantic vacation in the Riviera Maya in Mexico. If you follow me on Instagram (or Instagram Stories), you know that this striped off the shoulder dress from Tobi was one of the items I packed. I took these photos for the post before our trip, but I loved how this dress showed off my tan back and shoulders while we were in Mexico! Hope you are all enjoying your week and my U.S. readers, I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July (and Canadian readers, a great 150th Canada Day)! Keep reading below to see another outfit I styled from Tobi.

12 Months of Goals - July

12MonthsofGoals
Last year I set 3 goals every month for myself and I accomplished a lot! This year, I wanted to down play it even more and just set ONE goal for myself. However, with just one goal each month I hope to devote more time to it. You can find an update on May's Goal below.
