Thoughts For Thursday + Recent Outfits

I am kind of in shock that Christmas Eve is two weeks from today.  I finally just started tackling some of my shopping this week, but I still have quite a bit more to do!

We decided that next Summer we want to take another trip to the Caribbean.  I get so excited just thinking about the crystal clear water, white sand, and fun drinks.  We loved St. Maarten so much but decided we want to visit a new island this time.  We like a short direct flight and are thinking possibly all inclusive.  I got some recommendations on instagram this week so thank you to everyone who commented.  
So far we have kind of narrowed it down to Turks and Caicos, Antigua, and possibly Tulum or the Riveria Maya.  We are hoping to book by January.

The kids were so excited to get this cute christmas mat in the mail.  You can use code SNOOP for 10% off your order:)

Frances Moon got her first headband for her Birthday and I have to say I love it.  Although she looks so grown up here.

Last weekend I took a trip to Palmetto Bluff with my girl friends.  Toyota sponsored the trip for us and we had so much fun.  Palmetto Bluff is just darling. This was the perfect time of year to go,  I loved seeing all the Holiday decorations.

I am gearing up for my girl's Christmas Party tonight.  I will share all the details and what I cooked hopefully tomorrow.  I have little gifts ready for my friends. I love the idea of gifting a bottle of wine with an ornament.  The wine and ornaments are from World Market.
I loved the deer tray too, it is the perfect size for entertaining.

I am just finishing up my second Jo Jo Moyes book.  I read Me before You and I am finishing up After You.  I have really enjoyed both books.  Anyone else read anything good lately?

Now onto a few recent outfits. Many of these are still on sale and marked down even more.

I never met a leopard print I didn't love.  This style Equipment Dress is one of my favorites.   

I mentioned this Vince Blouse I bought during the Black Friday sales.  I wore it over the weekend in Palmetto Bluff.  It runs on the large side so I recommend ordering down a size.  I am wearing a size XS. It is currently 60% off and under $100.

The Girls at Lake Pajamas were sweet enough to send me a new winter pair and I love them.  I swear their jammies are the softest things ever.  They wash really well and look cute for lounging. They would make such a great Christmas gift, the 16th is the deadline for Christmas orders.

One of my favorites tee shirts was just reduced to 40% off and is only $20 now.  I love the loose swing style fit. I am wearing a size small.  

I stopped in JCrew this week to Christmas shop and found the best stripe tee shirt. I always think stripe shirts are so classic.  This one comes in 3 different colors.  It does run on the large side, I ended up buying size XS.

Have a great day!  I am off to clean house and cook for my party tonight and of course of all days Sterling is home sick with a horrible cough.  Wish me luck!

We went to El Dorado Maroma (all inclusive) for my 30th a few years back and LOVED it. In fact, we are considering going back this spring. I think they also have another AI resort in that same area.

We went to Hermitage Bay in Antigua for our honeymoon and I can’t say enough good things about it! Such an amazing vacation spot!

I went to Turks & Caicos in 2011 and stayed at Sandals by Beaches resort. It was so great. All inclusive, very family friendly, great food & drinks, very friendly people, and lots to do!

If you're taking the kids, Tulum is very far from the airport (About an hour and a half) so keep that in mind. Antigua was probably the most beautiful island I've ever been to, so that would be my recommendation. Not that you could go wrong with any of them!

We went to a Zoetry resort called Paraiso de la Bonita in Riviera Maya and loved it! It's a small, boutique resort and their food was amazing! We always talk about going back.

I can't wait to delve into the sequel to You Before Me, was hoping someone would review it, thanks! Currently reading The Nightingale, really enjoying it. Alexandra Bee just recommended a mystery that looks great, can't remember the name right now...on her IG.

I've been to all the places you mentioned, and hands down, Antigua was the most beautiful and truly felt like paradise! My second choice would be Riviera Maya. I LOVE your new pajamas too!
