Tropical Summer

   

  

  

  

  

 I have a lot of neutrals and solids in my closet…so when I find a print I love, I go for it. This tank top and short set by MinkPink is the perfect little summer pairing. The tropical print is refreshing without being “touristy.” And it’s soooo comfy! Added bonus: you can pair both pieces with other separates. The shorts look fab with a graphic tee!

My set is from LaLa Couture Boutique but it is sold out. Revolve has the print in a romper that’s also super cute. The shoes are the Steve Madden Dondde sandal…available at Macy’s. The clutch, by GiGi NY, comes in a variety of colors, order yours from LaLa Couture (call 954-712-1100 to order and follow them on instagram to see new goodies! @lalacouturegirl). 

Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!

XOXO,

Molly

White Mini

   

  

  

  

 The perfect little summer dress…the Pina Colada Mini by For Love and Lemons. It’s the perfect day dress or poolside coverup. Add a real pina colada and you’re set. Find the dress here.

My boater hat from J Crew is sold out in this color, but I also love it in the navy.

Grab a pair of Quay Australia sunnies from LaLa Couture Boutique (call 954-712-1100 to order- they ship free!)

The shoes are by Steve Madden…super comfy, affordable and chic.

Thanks for checking out the blog!

XOXO,

Mexico, I Love You

Traveling: my second love. My husband and I have been lucky enough to do a lot of traveling over the years, and one of our favorite destinations is Mexico. We have seen and explored many parts of this beautiful country; from Mexico City to La Paz to our latest vacation destination: Puerto Vallarta.

Despite the 90 degree weather and ultra intense humidity (that’s saying a lot from this Florida gal), we were able to enjoy all that this coastal town had to offer. We wandered through Zona Romantica (the Romantic Zone) and the Malecón where the streets were filled with the aroma of Mexican spices and local vendors setting up their shops. I got a lot of looks and compliments on my sandals 🙂

Stopping for a refreshing Michelada (beer and lime juice with spices), we realized that we were some of the only Americans in town. Puerto Vallarta is where the Mexican people  come to vacation.

My husband and I have never been “resort” type of people…always choosing to stay more in more rustic places. Don’t get me wrong, I love a 5-star hotel, but when we have the chance, we prefer to be a little bit more off-the-beaten-path. A bit more authentic 🙂

We stayed in a beautiful Villa, and score…it was very inexpensive and we had a wonderful local woman cook for us. Waking up every morning to freshly made chilaquiles and guacamole could make a girl stay here forever. By far my favorite part of the villa was the pool and the view overlooking the Bay of Banderas. It was breathtaking to say the least.

I enjoyed putting outfits together for this trip; there were a few things I wanted to wear but couldn’t due to the extremely hot temperatures.

All in all, we truly enjoyed our stay in Puerto Vallarta. Hasta la próxima, México!

White Hot Neutrals

To me, white on white is a classic that is always on trend. It’s simple and sophisticated. Both the top and denim are by Current/Elliott. Their stiletto jean fits so well…it has become one of my favorite denim styles!

The neutral shoes by Steve Madden and handbag by Rebecca Minkoff keep the outfit in the neutral color palate. Refreshing for these hot summer days!

My cuff is by Ted Rossi, my favorite leather accessory designer. Check out his website at www.tedrossi.com.
