When arriving on the magical little island, you are surrounded by turquoise water, palm trees, hammocks, and pretty much everything your wildest Caribbean dreams are made of.

I cannot explain to you how much I love this set (and pretty much any cute set for that matter) They are just the best for summer and make it way too easy to get dressed. I purchased this one from Revolve, and they have soo many other adorable options as well. Many of the pieces I end up buying are flirty, effortless, and have numerous styling options.

The sleek stripes and tiered layers set me up to buy this one (pun intended). I immediately fall for anything girly. I don’t know what it is with me and ruffles these days, but I cannot stop (even though they can be such a pain to iron). This is by the brand Privacy Please. They are a vintage-inspired label with the cutest pieces. Check some of them out below. I hope everyone has an amazing weekend.

Hello everyone,

The weather here is finally nice so I'm full on with the spring and summer looks. After hosting an evening at the Rebecca Minkoff store in Soho, which I thought went very well and it was so nice meeting everyone, I received a box with all kinds of goodies from their PR people. The necklace and iPhone purse in this picture are two of those items.  I decided to wrap the purse around my waist like a fanny pack which I think looks adorable. They come in several colors and I had been looking at them for a while so it was pretty exciting when I got it as a gift. Every time an opportunity comes my way to do something with my blog I become more and more addicted to it, it's so much fun and I am so grateful for the chance to do what I love. Thank you Rebecca and staff for your interest in me and thank you to all of my followers for taking the time out of your day to support me…it would not be possible without each and every one of you. Today's outfit is just a simple sleeveless top and a pair of shorts which have a skirt feel to them but when I add this fun necklace and the purse it just changes the whole look to eye popping cuteness. I'm loving it, and you will find you can do the same with any of your own outfits by just adding a little creativity with things you have in your closet. To keep this outfit from running on pink overload I decided to pair it with a blue denim pump to give it a little balance. Shop below:

If you follow me on Snapchat (laurrecc) then you may have seen me wearing this dress in Aruba trying to get “the shot”….I ended up not getting the best ‘shot’ of my outfit (I blame it on you Catherine!!!)  JK. Anyway, this dress is one of my favorites so I had to make sure I posted it on the blog.

I love the embroidered stars throughout and the ruffled detail at the bottom. Lately I have been so drawn to ruffles and pleats for the spring and summer. They are so feminine and fun. This dress is also available with long sleeves, as a shirt, or in navy and gold.  You can shop my look below. Thank you for stopping by today!!
