"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

Fun in the sun!

Merry Christmas darlings! I hope you got everything your little heart desired and that you will share photos of your treasures soon. Though the festivities of the day may be over, the holiday season is still with us. So get a little more wear out of your sequins and glitter and rock those satiny red pumps with confidence before it is too late.

The Holidays are always a joyful time spent relaxing with family and friends and reflecting on all the blessings in our lives. For many of us, this time off will be spent vacating our every day lives and indulging in a little holiday trip! And what better place to relax than in a tropical locale where you can escape the cold, soak up some rays, get a little color and simply lounge around! Whether you are on a cruise to mix and mingle or enjoying the serenity of your own private island with a sweetie, you will want to look radiant- even when you just throw on your favorite cut off shorts and a tank!
beach day
One of the my favorite activities to engage in during a tropical vaca is a day at the beach! What could be better than laying on the sand, being warmed by the sun and listening to the soothing crash of the waves? Absolutely nothing in my mind! In order to achieve the perfect goddess of the sea look, you will need a slamming suit. Whether you prefer a sexy bikini or the allure of a hip-hugging one piece, accessorize your suit with a darling cover-up, a pair of face flattering sunglasses, simple thongs and your favorite over-sized beach tote and you will be ready for a relaxing day of water-side lounging. Fair warning though, be ready to turn heads all day long!

lounge wear
If you are looking for a little adventure during your sunny stay in paradise, why not opt for casual chic attire that allows for all day exploration! You may not think that jean shorts can be glamorous, but when paired with a flirty tank, understated sandals, dangly earrings, lots of bangles and a fabulous fedora you will be the picture of boho perfection! But if you are a girly-girl through and through who wouldn't consider wearing garments with two leg holes on principle alone, then don't forget to pack your flowiest sundress and elegant gladiator sandals. Go light on the accessories, with bangles and earrings that pick up the colors in your dress. Even if you are traversing through rain forests, you will be the queen of the jungle!

night out
After a long day of water-side lounging, a dinner at the best restaurant in town will be the perfect capstone to your perfect day! For a fancy night out, don your favorite colorful summer frock, your hottest pumps and glam yourself up with your most fun accessories. I am personally head over heels in love with this peacock dress and would love to see you ladies strutting your stuff with this feathered clutch clutched in your hands, and this knot headband perched atop your head. With a wrist full of bangles, sweet rose studs decorating your lobes and an overly shiny bauble resting on your dainty finger, you will surely be the most dazzling woman in any room!

Alright kittens, you are now totally ready to rock the beaches and make waves wherever you go! I can't wait to hear about your fabulous holiday voyages. But if paradise for you comes in the form of snow rather than sand and sun, head over to the delightfully sweet Tasha's blog to check out my guest post on snow bunny attire! Again, Merry Christmas dolls!
