Resort Obsessions

I had a reader request to share some resort favorites as she is headed somewhere tropical over President's day.  Perfect timing since I leave for St John's in about 4 weeks.  I have beach wear on the brain.  I know it is still cold everywhere but it is fun to dream of warmer temperatures and a sunny escape.  


Such a gorgeous one piece.  Also comes in black and red.

Also comes in white.

This looks like it would be so flattering.  

Loving all the cute pom-poms

This is perfect to toss on with jean shorts but would also be cute with jeans too.

I always love the palm print.  This would be great for any of you pregnant ladies too.
I love a cute necklace to toss on with a cover-up or white tee.

I really want this one.  I love the style and embroidery detail.

Under $100.

I own this in the black version and love it.  The tie dye is so fun.
This is on my wish list.  It is cloth so it is light weight and easy to fold up and pack.

This is under $100 and comes in several color options.

I just bought these at Target and they are adorable in person and under $30.

Super cute and on sale for under $50.

I just love fun earrings when I am on vacation.   These also come in blue and green and I like that they look lightweight!
I always love a neutral sandal and these would go with everything.
Mara never disappoints.  I am contemplating this one for our trip.  I love the color palette and style.

Pizza Wonton Bites+ 18 Super Bowl Appetizer Ideas

Today is all about appetizers, aka my favorite meal.  I made these pizza wontons over the weekend for happy hour with my neighbors and they were a huge hit.   Since the Super Bowl is this upcoming weekend I wanted to share this recipe and a few others that would be perfect for game day!
Let's be real I could care less about the actual football game but I do love the food spread and half time show:)
