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!

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.

What are you lovelies up to this weekend?

Beach Bags I'm Loving

Beach Bags

1  //  2  //  3  //  4  //  5  //  6  //  7  //  8

Summer is in full swing and I can't get over how many fabulous beach bags there are!
Here's a roundup of my current favorites. So many of them are on sale cheap!
Happy Shopping!

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! :)
