Sunlit Gypsy

The weekend wasn't as busy as I had anticipated it to be, which was sort-of a relief because it allowed me time to do this......

Towel - The Beach People  //  Hat - Jcrew  //  Bracelets - KaizenFashionProject Etsy

Spend time down on the beach. My favorite place.

I also made bracelets while basking in the sun that I've listed in the etsy shop

Snatch them up here before they're gone!

Here's hoping your coffee's strong and your Monday short!

A Little Bit Of Everything

Does anyone else have weeks where they feel like they're running around like a chicken with their head cut off and can't catch their breath? Raise your hand. Please tell me I'm not the only one with weeks like this.

 Needless to say I'm beyond THRILLED that it's Friday. Although, my weekend won't bring much relief since tomorrow I'm attending a family reunion/BBQ and Sunday a wedding.

Oh well. I suppose all a girl can do is just remind herself it's not always like this, AND drink a lot of coffee! :)


Here's a quick recap of my week:

My photo was featured on People Stylewatch's Instagram feed which was super fun and very thoughtful of them (I'm grateful! xo)

See their must-follow Instagram feed -----> here.


I received my out-of-this-world gorgeous "Roundie" beach towel from The Beach People.
Seriously, nobody on this planet makes a more fabulous beach towel, and if you don't have one you MUST go buy one. 

Like now. 
From ------> here.

Your beach experience will exponentially become more amazing with this towel. Promise. 

I'll post photos with it at the beach soon!


I attended a special little boy's birthday at the park!
(Happy Birthday Colton!)


I spent a lot of time on my swing outside in the amazing weather wearing these amazingly-cool Nectar sunnies and Shira Melody yellow cuff.

Check out the shops -------> Cuff  //  Sunnies


woke up to these beauties in my mailbox from Trending Above.
Look for them in an upcoming outfit post.

 Until then checkout all the amazing baubles ----------> here.

What are you lovelies up to this weekend?

Weekly Favorites - Miami Pink & Bare Minerals!

Leopard Fold-over clutch - Clare Vivier  //  Nail polish - Forever21  //  Headband - J.Crew  // Magazine - People StyleWatch 

Summer is officially here! And I'm thrilled! Although I'm a busy bee working everyday, my downtime is spent outside soaking up the sun, at the beach, riding bikes, and just lounging in the grass....ahhhh :)

Here is what I'm loving lately:

Forever21 nail polish in Miami Pink

bareMinerals - The First Resort set 

It's the perfect all-in-one summer make-up set. It's a three piece set which includes: a gorgeous coral lip gloss that lasts and looks really good on everyone, a triple packed bronzer/highlighter, and a awesome super soft fan brush!

I use it last after I've put on the rest of my make-up and it's essentially fool-proof.

I dust the fan brush across the bronzer and lightly apply it to my face where the sun would naturally hit it, and slick some gloss on and go.

I'm obsessed. And from the looks of it so is everybody else since it's flying off shelves! So hurry and buy it before it's gone!


A little off topic, but I just have to share how incredibly thankful I am that I live here and have a view like this...the pacific northwest is a gem.....

Have a fabulous weekend all!

Happy Fourth of July!

Hope you all had a super fun and memorable July 4th! I spend the day with family and friends at our big annual fourth of July/family reunion celebration. I had a wonderful time and the weather held out for almost the whole day, which is big deal here in Washington state where our weather is often bipolar; sunny and warm, one minute, gray, raining and windy the next. 

Top  //  Shorts  //  Wedges

"Merica bracelet" in my etsy shop here.

Did a little 4th of July shopping!

There were some really good sales and I couldn't pass up this hoodie and stripe headband for $19 at Forever21. Distressed jeans are from American Eagle.

Slipped on my hunter boots and headed out in the boat with my handsome fiance' and pulled crab pots for the July 4th feast. It was gorgeous and sunny out on the water and we scored 12 keepers! YUM.

Wishing you all a fabulous long weekend! :)

3.1 Pashli - Look for Less

Just a quick "look for less" post. And if you're a Phillip Lim fan you may want to keep reading.
I recently stumbled upon a practically identical backpack to 3.1 Phillip Lim's Pashli.

The only real difference; 
One boasts a steep $895.00, while the other sports a cool $29.80 price tag.

A Monday Post of Random

A quick random post.
I've been under the weather for a while (hello sore throat and bronchitis), ugh. I'm still not 100% but I'm on the up-and-up thankfully and am slowly getting my energy back. Yay! And the sun's been out a lot lately and that's always a good thing, the sun is so energizing!

My new obsession is my new Clare Vivier leopard print clutch. OBSESSED. 
It's gorgeous. It luxurious. It goes with EVERYTHING.
It was gifted to me by my super thoughtful and sweet fiance (thanks again babe) and I've been carrying it relentlessly since it arrived. If you're looking for a new clutch, look no farther, this is the creme de la creme.
Buy it. You'll LOVE it!

Flip Flops: Tory Burch  //  Skirt: American Eagle  //  Clutch: Clare Vivier  //  Sunglasses: Target  //  Bracelets: Kaizen Fashion Project ETSY shop

Since the weather's been warming up I've been drinking more water, but plain water can get old quick, so  I've been adding sliced strawberries and cucumber to my iced water and it's SO SO good!
Really refreshing, I recommend trying it.

Lastly, can we just talk about how AMAZING these sandals are?!? Ah-Mazing. I'm head-over-heels crazy about them and need them in my life and on my feet. Currently they're sold out, but
I'm stalking Shop Candy Apple like a vulture waiting for them to restock.

Happy Monday y'all!

When What You're Up To Is Not A Lot

I haven't been this sick in years! Seriously I think it's been 3 years. I have been sick as a dog all week with bronchitis, so I've been mostly living in my bed with only quick trips for the necessities. Today's the first day I'm starting to feel alive and human again thank God and the suns out! So I'm super stoked about that. I watched much of fashion week on my laptop in bed, did some online shopping and a little work, but that was the extent of my productivity. Oh well.

This adorable furry guy is a great companion when you're sick.

Yes this was part of my breakfast yesterday. Although I did have toast and fruit too. 

Lastly, I got these beauties in the mail yesterday and I'm so happy with them! Obviously because I'm a sickie I have yet to actually wear them out and about but you bet when the delivery guy showed up I sprinted to the door and put them on and walked all around my house in them! Yes, with my pajama bottoms on. HA! :) 
I'm really wanting the red color as well so I'm hoping Sole Society will restock them in my size (8 if you're reading this) soon.

Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend and are NOT sick :)
