WIWW #19

Last week I had the pleasure of spending 7 days on vacation at the beautiful Beaches resort in Turks and Caicos.


It was seriously one of the best weeks of my life. Oh what I wouldn't give to still be sitting by the pool, book in hand and pina colada at my side!

No worries though, I am a committed WIWW member and somehow managed to get a great deal of pictures taken for my outfits. It was hard to pull myself away from the relaxation, but I didn't want to disappoint anyone :)

Day time was spent like this:



{snorkling gear optional!}

and we dressed up in the evenings for our family dinner. {I should have mentioned there was NINETEEN of us on this trip. so fun!}


{this resort had a whole sesame street area. and i felt the need to pose with abby cadabby!}

dress: franchescas
belt: jcpenneys
shoes: boutique in hereford, tx {yellow box brand}



shirt: loft
belt: jcpenneys
shorts: br factory store
my new favorite shoes: boutique in hereford

casual version of hello bold!



shirt: franchesca's
sweater: penney's
shorts: loft
belt: express

my new favorite dress!



dress: steinmart

{we don't have a steinmart in my town but i had to stop at one on an errand for my grandmother. i briefly walked through the store and found 5 dresses. my lucky day!}

{sorry there's no far away picture. i look drugged in them!}

shirt: kohl's
skirt: franchesca's
belt: penney's

funny story. this shirt is actually from the maternity section at kohl's. don't worry, you haven't missed any big announcements on the blog. my mom and i thought it was so cute {and orange is SO my color!} and i knew i would wear it belted, so i went ahead and got it! i'm in love.



skirt and shirt: loft
belt: penney's

funny story: i saw this outfit in a loft mail out and knew it had to be mine. fast forward a few days after i've placed the order and my parents were in town for cody's graduation. somehow it was mentioned that my mom just ordered stuff from loft, so i asked what it was. yep, we both saw the outfit and fell in love with it and ordered it without the other knowing! we end up wearing similar outfits more times than not!

that's the clothes of my vacation week! check back with the blog later to hear a review on our stay at Beaches!
