Resort Love

We finally have booked our trip for this Summer!!  Several of you asked where we decided to go and we have decided to go back to St Maarten.  We researched so many places and even had a travel agent help us some but each place was missing something we wanted or was way too expensive.  Then one night we were like why not St Maarten again??  If it ain't broke don't fix.  It had everything we wanted : it is a short and direct flight (I hate to fly so I always prefer direct) personal infinity pool, shared living space with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, a kitchen, it is on the water,  and plus the price was right.   So we head back in the end of June and I cold not be more excited!   There were so many parts of the island we didn't get to explore last year so I can't wait to see more.  If any of you have been I would love suggestions. 
It definitely has me thinking about Resort wear. I also had a reader who is going on vacation in March and wanted some Beach suggestions.  There are so many beautiful beachy finds right now and below are a few things on my wish list.

I always love white in the Summer and you all know I love a good off shoulder dress:)

I love this classic one piece.  I am always a fan of black swimsuits and strapless so this one is a winner.

I love the pattern on this maxi.  I also love the loose flowy style.

I bought this one piece last year and I can't say enough great things about it.  It is super flattering and I like the slight edge.   It has with the sides cut out but it doesn't show too much skin.

I am so glad they came back out with this cover-up this year.   It also comes in coral.
Now don't get me wrong I love my Maryisa Swimsuits but this one looks identical for a fraction of the price.

I am loving the bright blue colors on this one piece.

I love the back detail on this caftan and it is only $32!

Love this beach tote. 
The colors in this maxi dress are beyond stunning. 

I love a white blouse.  This one would be perfect paired with jean short cut-offs and a cool necklace.

I love bright colored beaded necklaces to toss on over a white tee shirt or cover-up.  This one is only $45 but it looks like so many more expensive versions I have seen.

I own this and love it.  Such a great purse.  I have the tan color but it also comes in black and coral.  You can carry it as a clutch or it has a strap to be a cross body bag as well.

I am so obsessed with this swimsuit.  The colors are gorgeous and I love the strapless style, it looks like it would be really flattering on.

Pineapples + Embroidery + under $80 = yes

I have recently become a fan of this sunglasses line and best part almost all of the sunglasses are under $70.  The quality is great too.  I recently ordered a pair and was surprised how nice they were. I love this aviator style.
The cutest woven clutch and it is only $38.  I saw this in person at Nordstrom in Charlotte and really liked it, such a cool pattern and it was a nice large size.

Twine and Twig just came out with some fabulous new shell necklaces that I am so excited about for the Summer.

We did the same thing and went to the same exact resort in Mexico 2 years in a row. We loved it so much! Sometimes you just have to go back. :-)

Love that Kate Spade suit with the bow. Adorable.

That Mara Hoffman maxi...I LOVE!!! I also wanted that Tory suit so badly last year, so I may have to splurge on it this year!
