Outfit Of The Day | Washed Out Tee

Happy Thursday!  I wanted to share a recent outfit that has been on repeat lately.  I have been living in this tee shirt. 

Also I had a few people email me about The Westin in St John asking about construction while we stayed there.  We didn't notice any construction or hear loud noises at all.  The Westin was wonderful and I would totally recommend it.  the service was excellent and our villa was beautiful.  It was very family friendly too if you wanted to bring kids.

Use code GOBIG17 to save on my jeans and booties.

This tee is under $20.  It comes in so many different colors.  I own the black and this pink color I am wearing and I am seriously tempted to get another color.  Sizing wise I went with a medium because I don't like my tee shirts too fitted.  Trust me this is the softest tee ever.
This purse is such a great cross body.  It is the perfect size, you can easily fit your wallet and phone inside.   I always travel with it- you may remember it from my St John pictures as well.

The Rag and Bone Newbury booties are sometimes excluded from sales but this time they are part of the Shopbop sale.  Use code GOBIG17 to save on them.  It is a great time to buy with the discount.  I wear mine all the time.  I went up a 1/2 size in these.  I am normally a 9 and wear a 39.5 in these.
Also on sale in black and dark brown.

  Rag and Bone and Current/Elliot make some of my favorite tees.  The fit and quality is always great.   They are all on sale right now, part of the Shopbop sale. They are not cheap so it is great to buy them on sale to save some money.  
Use code GOBIG17.

I love the fit and quality of this tee. 

I own this one in a stripe version.  The back is so fun.

St John Recap

I wanted to share a few pictures (ok, actually a lot of pictures)  from our trip to St John last weekend.  We had the absolute best time ever.  We feel in love with St John, such a gorgeous island with so many nice people.  Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer.  Next time we will definitely do an extra night or two.  I have to say girl time is so good for the soul.  We laughed so hard we cried and shared so many amazing memories.  I feel so lucky to have these girls in my life.

Ready for take off!

St John doesn't have an airport so we flew into St Thomas and took a ferry from there.  Since we were staying at the Westin they had their own taxi service and ferry which made things super easy and convenient.

The ferry ride was about 40 minutes but such a beautiful ride.
As I mentioned before we stayed at the Westin.  We had a 3 bedroom 3 bath villa and it was perfection.   So nice and the perfect amount of space for us girls. 
They greet you with rum punch when you arrive- and yep that is Caycee chilling in the bath (fully clothed).

The first night we headed to Zozo's for dinner.  So many people recommended it and it was one of our favorites.  I loved the food and atmosphere.

I had the ravioli and beet salad both were amazing.
What I wore:

The next day we headed to Cruz Bay for lunch and to lay out.  Several people recommended The Rum Hut and Beach Bar for drinks.  They were right on the beach and we had a blast.

At The Beach Bar we had the buffalo shrimp and they were so fresh and tasty.

I ended up loving the higher waisted one piece I ordered. It was nice to suck in and hide the flab.

That night for dinner we ended up canceling our reservations and eating at Ollie and Knox at The Westin.  It was our least favorite meal.  The food was just not great and we didn't love the atmosphere either.

After dinner we headed to The Longboard for a drink.  We heard it was owned by Charleston Peeps so knew we needed to check it out.

The next day was another beach day.

For dinner that night we headed to Extra Virgin, which I absolutely adored.  They do farm to table cooking and grow most of their produce.  Their menu changes daily.

We enjoyed this red wine which was really good.
 What I wore:

We didn't fly out the next day til almost 5 so we enjoyed some beach time and lunch at High Times.

High Times was right on the water and the food was really good.  I have to say all of our meals were really good.  

I had the BLT and it came with brie and mango chutney.  I def plan on recreating this at home.
I wore this dress for traveling and it was so comfy!
We were sad to leave but ready to see our babies.  We made a pact will are going to do a girl's trip once a year! 

Love these girls so much!
