head in the sand


Elle jeans (Kohl's clearance, $20) | Tommy Hilfiger denim jacket | Oscar de la Renta scarf (Beall's Outlet) | Steve Madden sandals | Dooney & Bourke Dillen II large pocket satchel


Let me start by telling you that the last time I went on a proper weekend getaway was exactly this time last year when my friend, Lauren, tied the knot in a gorgeous destination wedding in Charleston, SC. I know what you’re thinking. “Get outta town!”  Seriously, for the love… Get. Outta. Town.

I’m happy to report that I’m doing just that. This weekend, I’m heading to a beach resort with some of my favorite girls in the world for a few days of sun, sand and relaxation. With a heavy dose of SPF for this fair-skinned maiden.

The only problem is, my mind is already in beach mode and I can’t concentrate on important stuff like, er, work.

  5. Well, now the only think I can concentrate on is getting a pair of coral jeans or pants. I think I NEED them now. Anyway, you look great and I hope you enjoy your vacation. You work hard–you deserve it!

  9. Have a wonderful time! I’m so jealous. I haven’t been to the beach in FOREVER! I am going to visit my parents’ from tomorrow until Sunday, but as much as I love them, nothing is as relaxing as laying on the beach with my hands in the sand and my feet in the water! SPF it up!! I went out with SPF 30 AFTER 4:30 this afternoon for about 45 minutes and got burned! Whhaaaa?

    Oh, and I LOVE those jeans. They’re my favorite spring color!

    Beach mode is the best (if not the most productive)! So is the color pairing of the jeans & bag…

    you always seem to find the best clearance deals at khol’s! how often do you stop in to check the clearance racks?

    • Not as often as you may think! But I tend to binge when I do go, because I wait until I get a coupon in the mail and then I stock up. I hate credit cards, but we do have a Kohl’s charge because they have the best perks. I pay it off every time I use it, and they send us lots of coupons and Kohl’s cash.

        haha, gotcha. i’ve never been a big kohl’s shopper – mostly because there isn’t convenient to my house. but after seeing all your finds i thought i might have to start making trips more often! ;)
