the babe trip

gals at the resortWhen it’s important, you make a point to make it happen. Which is why my girlfriends and I plan a bi-annual babecation.

This is only the second trip of its kind, but we’ve already made a promise to maintain this tradition because there is just nothing better. Truly. There is nothing better than spending five unobstructed days on the beach with the bests who live as far north as Chicago and south as Bardstown. This will always be a must do.

This year it was Punta Cana, which was perfectly perfect. The water was the brightest of blues, the sun shone like crazy, and the company was one-of-a-kind. We laughed the entire time, got completely caught up with each other’s affairs, and lived by the motto of YOLO pretty much everyday. It was seriously such a blast.

So I have plenty to share from our short time down there but it appears that I was the sole historian. I definitely captured my friends looking gorgeous and having a great time, but I assure you, I was there and did partake in all of the fun. But for now, it is pretty much about them.

Painted Threads topMomma loves a good find.

I ventured over to the juniors section of Nordstrom a few weeks ago in hopes of finding a fun, floral romper and stumbled upon this tank. It appeared to be everything I look for in a top – loosely-fitting, silky-feeling, layer-y, and patterned. Tried it on and knew it was a keeper.

I initially wore it with my trusty distressed Madewell skinny skinnies, but today I’m bringing you three different and easy versions to show you just how much I’m loving it. All three are completely doable and completely up my alley, which means easy, layered, and mix-and-matchable. Exactly how I like to roll.
