summer spirit.

f21 top; hco shorts; ray-ban aviators; rebecca minkoff bag; madden girl sandals

Nothing encapsulates the free spirited nature of summer better than cut-offs and a tee. The combo is conducive to both heat and general summertime laziness. I’m in love with this particular top for its relaxed neckline and playful nod to tribal prints.

To avoid looking too slob (google: Britney Spears barefoot at a gas station), add a pair of strappy sandals and a crossbody bag with some major hardware.

beach bound.

In a little over a week, two of my best friends and I will be taking South Beach, Miami by storm (but seriously, no hurricanes please)!  In honor of our adventures, I’ve compiled some of my favorite beach gear, which’ll also be perfect for some frolicking up and down Collins Ave.  I love my fun in the sun, but I also take sun safety pretty seriously!  SPF 85 Sunscreen?  You betcha!

My bf’s gift to me: a Michael Kors watch!

Today, I hit the quarter century mark and I can’t believe how much time has flown by!  It only seems appropriate that my boyfriend got me my very first watch (at least since my Mickey Mouse wearing days).  Even though I’m still getting used to the extra weight on my wrist, I officially feel like a grown up.

I’m so lucky to have such amazingly supportive and loving friends and family in my life.  Thanks to all who have made turning 25 as fabulous (and painless) as possible!
