Two Tickets to Paradise

Above: Corey Lynn Calter jumpsuit (check out the sale at CLC, tons of fun tropical goodies!), Erotokritos sandals, West Elm clutch, coral necklace lovingly made by my mom, Rayban sunglasses

 

If you are looking for tropical paradise, St. John has you covered. 

Sun, sand, rum cocktails. Snorkeling, hiking, sunning.  That pretty much sums it up! 

I stocked up on tropical goodies before the trip at Anthropologie (on sale!). Scored this Corey Lynn Calter jumpsuit for a song. It is sold out at Anthro but you should check out the sale at CLC's site right now, tons of tropical wares at great prices.

Tropical Getaway: Pack Your Swims, Sunnies & Havaianas

Photobucket

 

The snap of cold weather has me longing for my recent vacation in St. John.  Was it really just two weeks ago that I lived in swimsuits and flip flops? Now it is 30 degrees and snowing.  Welcome to New England! I'll be rolling out some of my tropical outfits and travel tips this week, in honor of our first snow...

 

I am already planning my next get away and as luck would have it, it's the perfect time to stock up on all the essentials- swimsuits, sun dresses, most importantly, all on SALE. Here's a peek at my tropical wish list and a few things bound to make it into my luggage for the next trip.

 

My go to flip flop? Havaianas of course, who have some seriously adorable styles in their current resort collection. Born in 1962, Havaianas spread like wild fire in 2000 across the globe- available in an astounding 60 countries today. You can even create a custom pair on their site....for yourself, or as a gift (or, do both, for those of us that have a one for you/one for me gift policy when shopping for the holidays;). Not sure what to gift? Give'em a gift card to pick out or make their own.  I'll personally be giving the Lucky eye flip flops to some of my Greek in-laws, they are perfection! Along with keeping a pair for myself.

How to Build a Better Bar Cart

 

Photobucket

Your guide to building a bar cart, just in time for the slew of holiday parties you are sure to attend (these items make fabulous host/hostess gifts!) and host.

The sleek, simple design of the libations bar cart from Crate and Barrell is a great base to build upon. Also check out the Beckett bar cart via William Sonoma, available in gold or silver finishes.

Finally, even more of my choices for a timless bar cart, available via my latest selection of Guest Picks via Houzz!

Happy mixing, shaking, and stirring!
