Vacation Stye

 Bathing Suit (wearing a size 6) | Denim Shorts | Hat | Sunglasses

Happy first day of spring!  Although the weather is finally starting to warm up in New England, I catch myself day dreaming about being back in the Dominican Republic.  I can't wait until I get to wear little sundress again, and spend my days on the water.  Whether you're headed on vacation yourself, or want to get a start on your summer wardrobe, I'm sharing some of my vacation outfits, along with the best swimsuits that I found this season.  Most are mom friendly, and under $50!

The swimsuit shown above is my absolute favorite.  It's by Trina Turk, and although over $100, it's worth every penny!  Not only is the cut full coverage, but the off-the-shoulder style makes it super stylish, plus it stays in place when chasing around two toddlers.  What I love most about this bathing suit, is you can add a skirt or a pair of denim shorts, and it looks like your wearing a top.  It's perfect for taking you from the beach to lunch!

This little black dress was the perfect item to pack for vacation, as it's reversible.  I was able to wear it on two different nights, and no one knew it was the same dress!  Plus I love that it can be dressed up or down.  You can see it styled both ways here.

This is another one piece suit that I'm loving, and it also happens to be a Target find.  The smocked waist is super flattering, and the deep V-neckline is sexy without being too revealing.  I love wearing kimonos as cover-ups, and this fringe one is under $15.  I'm also linking some other great kimono finds below.

I'm obsessed with this leopard suit!  I had seen it on some other bloggers, and actually had no intention of buying it for myself.  However, when I was in the store and saw that the top came in a size large enough for my chest, I gave it a try, and immediately fell in love.  It supports and holds everything in place, while the bottoms are a super high rise, and cover my no-so-perfect stomach.  Plus, how adorable is the leopard print?

This isn't the most flattering photo, but I forgot to snap a picture of this bikini when I was at the beach, so a bad mirror selfie will have to do!  I found this suit on Amazon, and love the fit.  Although the top isn't the most supportive, it is padded (and has adjustable straps) and I love that the ruffle adds great coverage.  The bottoms come up nice and high, covering everything that I don't want shown.  This bikini is available in several colors and prints, but of course I chose black, which I found really flattering.
  
vacation dress

I'll be sharing more details of this outfit on blog soon, but wanted to give a you sneak peek of this dress.  I love the cut, and it was perfect for a date night at the resort.  This is something I see myself wearing with flat sandals for causal look, or dressing up with heels for a summer event. 

I didn't take any scenic photos of the resort (Santuarty Capa Cana), and am now regretting it.  The resort was absolutely gorgeous, which I hope you can tell from the background of these photos.  There were multiples pools to sit by, and the beach was filled with beautiful cabanas.  Although the food was your typical all inclusive quality, I have to say that the house wine selections were horrible.  If they improved the food and drink quality, it would be a place that I would greatly recommend.

Take me back to the Caribbean! 

Last week, Mike and I vacationed in Punta Cana (sans kids) and had an amazing time.  The weather was perfect, the frozen drinks were delicious, and resort was gorgeous (Sanctuary Cap Cana), which is where these photos were taken.  Right before we left to head south, I received my latest package from Discover Peach, and couldn't have asked for a more ideal vacation dress.  Not only is this little back dress made of the softest material, but it can be worn two ways!  Plus it has pockets, which we know makes any dress better.  Because this dress is reversible, I was able to wear it for two different occasions on our trip, which helped me pack less (anyone else have trouble keeping their luggage under 50 pounds???).  One night, I wore the scoop neck in the front with white sandals for a causal dinner.  Later in the week, I reversed the dress so the neckline was higher, and paired it with heeled sandals for a dressier cocktail hour.

The best part about the dress (I know, how can it get any better?) is that it's machine washable!  It's part of Peach's Essentials line which includes basics that are soft, machine washable, and can take you from day to night.  I also own these boho jogger pants, and these leggings from the line, and get endless compliments whenever I wear them!  You can read my past posts featuring Peach here and here, and see why I'm a huge fan of the brand.

Neutral Leopard Print Sweater

Neutral Leopard Print Sweater
*This post contains sponsored content and affiliate links.

Anyone else been on a leopard kick lately? I can't stop adding the animal print to my wardrobe (last worn here) but can you blame me?  Not only is the print fun to wear, but it goes with everything, which is why most people consider it a neutral.  I added this oversized leopard sweater to my wardrobe a couple of months ago, and it quickly became a closet staple.  The oversized fit is super cozy, while the long length makes it perfect to wear with both leggings and jeans.  Plus, I love how the lighter colored print is ideal for transitioning into the spring.  Since the weather won't warm up (here in New England) for another couple of months,  pairing it with white jeans gives the appearance of a spring-like look, while still keeping you warm!

While putting this post together, I realized that it has been exactly a month since I last updated the blog.  Between managing my growing beauty business and taking care of the twins (not to mention constantly being sick this year), I had to cut back somewhere, which unfortunately meant the blog.  Don't worry, it's not going anywhere!!  I love blogging and don't plan on stopping.  I'll just be posting sporadically until I can manage my time better, and get back into a regular schedule (which I'm hoping will be real soon).  In the meantime,  make sure to follow along on Instagram for fashion, beauty and mom life!
