New Year New Obsessions

After the New Year I always start craving the Sun and a vacation. Matt and I are actually in the midst of planning a tropical getaway in the next few months,  so many of my obsessions this week are beach related!  We are looking to travel somewhere in the BVI or US Virgin Islands (thinking maybe all inclusive) and would welcome any recs of places to stay!  

I love this straw purse, perfect for a beach getaway.  Under $100!

These shoes are perfection and under $200 although they look like a million bucks!  
I think these would look equally great with jeans and dresses.


The color of this dress is just stunning!  You could wear it now with booties and then in the Summer with cute flats.

I just love this pattern on these shorts.  I even love the matching top paired with the shorts.


I am so tempted to order this romper to try,  It is only $60 and I love the color.   Plus it looks like a classic and not too revealing fit.
 
Such a fab cover up, also comes in white.  I really like the cut-out detail at the bottom and shoulders.


I have mentioned this blouse before but it is on major sale plus additional 40% off with code STYLE2015.  It comes to only $30 after the discount. I love the white or blue for summer paired with cut-offs.

 I own the black and white- it runs on the large side, I am wearing a size 2.

This is quite possibly the perfect nude lipstick.  I am hooked on mine, it goes on smoothly and provides the perfect hint of color.


I love both these Lemlem tunics on sale plus additonal 40% off and Lemlem is rarely on sale.  I actually ordered the shorter version to try out.
also in the longer version.
Obsessing over the colors and pattern on this bag.  Perfect for a weekend getaway!
This is one of my picks from the Lily sale.  I fell in love with this hot pink leopard when I saw it in the store.  It is now only $39, today is the last day to shop the sale.

I also love the Elsa blouse in this fun pattern, reminds me of Palm Beach in the 70s. The colors are so vibrant.  Now 50% off!


I am loving these flats in all 4 colors and designs they come in!



Really digging this white blouse, the bottom detail is gorgeous.

This is not clothes related but Matt and I are obsessed with this Coconut Water, like it is the best coconut water we have had.  I like that it comes in cans to keep it really cold plus I love the bits of pulp in it.  I keep ordering it by the caseload.

Perfect timing. I am going to Tulum, Mexico in a month and need to start snagging up some warm weather stuff. It's snowing in DC today! I'm a shortie and think the Jcrew blouse will be a great tunic for the beach and with shorts.

We just got back from Playa Muejeres, Mexico and stayed at the Excellence resort. I highly recommend any of their resorts. Fantastic customer service and all inclusive!

I wish that Coconut water wasn't so bad for you..so much sugar and carbs per can bc it sounds delicious!!

I love all your picks, it's as if your writing your blog just for me as my husband (along with another couple) are going on a barefoot cruise in the BVI/U.S. Virgin Islands the first week of March. I would highly recommend our trip, we fly into St. Thomas and board our own 72 foot yacht to sail the seas and visit the islands thru out the week. Diving, food, drinks, etc, is all included. We are going thru Sublime Sailing, it's expensive but the best trip you can do (we've done this trip once before). You do have to book about a year in advance... so maybe next year for you two.

You should definitely look into Secrets St James in Montego Bay, Jamaica! It is amazing! Everyone treats you like family and it's an all inclusive adult resort! I've been twice with my family and we're going again in October! They also have a resort in Mexico!

Funny! I bought the two things you picked from the Lilly sale yesterday, along with one other dress! Love the blue romper!!

For BVI/USVI we stayed at Little Dix Bay. Caneel Bay, their sister property, is supposed to be even better. Pricey, but we went in off season (end of May) and got a great deal. It did take some time and some small plane rides to get there though. You can also take a boat shuttle to island. Jetsetter always has great deals on great vacay properties, so it is worth checking weekly.

I live in Elsas! I love the clutch. We went to St. John in 2011 and had an absolutely wonderful time. We rented a house to stay in for a week. I will say food was WAY more expensive than other places we've been, such as Mexico.

I went to the BVI's on my honeymoon and am already planning our return trip! We absolutely loved the Bitter End Yacht Club in Virgin Gorda. It was like summer camp for adults. They had activites (like snorkeling and day trips to Anegada) but you could also just take out a 10ft doreys and cruise over to all of the other islands. All BVI island beaches are open to the public - so we were able to find our own private beach for the day. Our room overlooked Richard Branson's private island. It was an amazing trip and I highly recommend it!

I can see why these are all obsessions, love everything! We recent went to Punta Cana and stayed at the Hard Rock hotel and LOVED it!

St. John USVI is by far our favorite place to go!

EmilyD said...

I love the BVIs! You should definitely check out Peter Island Resort, it is amazing and was our favorite place we stayed. I would recommend staying somewhere where there are convenient options to do day excursions. When we were at Scrub Island, we did several day trips that were so fun - we visited the Baths at Virgin Gorda one day and did an Island(more like bar) Hopping excursion day(the bars at Jost Van Dyke are a must!). We also flew into St Thomas and stayed at the Ritz, which was ok - I would've preferred to stay on St. Johns, or even fly into Puerto Rico next time and take a little plane to one of the islands, skipping St Thomas all together. Hope this helps - have a blast planning!

Now, you make me want to go on a beach vacation and buy a whole new wardrobe! We will be attending a beach destination wedding sometime in the Fall. I may have to purchase a few of these for the trip!

I cannot recommend St. John, USVI highly enough! We have gone every year since our honeymoon - this year was trip #6. After our week-long honeymoon, we started going for two weeks. It's THAT AWESOME! It's an unspoiled, non-touristy PARADISE! Check out Caneel for understated Rockefeller elegance, or any of the AWESOME villa rentals (Apito is our favorite)! No all-inclusive resorts here (there is a Westin, though), but if you're looking for an off-the-beaten-path, quirky, natural paradise, STJ is your island! I just finished posting this year's trip report to my blog, so let me know if you'd like an invite (it's a private blog). Happy planning! Planning is the BEST!

Ok, love that Maya bag. I am getting my hands on one of her bags this year, I missed out last Summer!

Anna Taylor said...

I ditto the earlier comments on St. John, USVI. We went on our honeymoon 10 years ago and have been back every year since. Although we go other places as well, we still can't find anywhere as great as STJ. You should try it...I promise you will love it!
