Muddy Lake Trip


 PANTS: J Brand / TOP: c/o Chicnova / SHOES: Nordstrom / SUNNIES: Miu Miu / BACKPACK: Urban Outfitters

 On Sunday we decided to take Chauncey fishing with us! It was so funny watching him splash around in the water – even though wet paws + dirt = a muddy muddy dog – and how are you supposed to not let your dog jump all over you and cuddle you?! So I went home covered in mud and very very wet :)

Pina Coladas


 SHORTS: Forever 21 / SWIMSUIT TOP: Victoria’s Secret / HEAD WRAP: Nordstrom / SUNNIES: Miu Miu / BEACH TOTE: Target also love THIS one from Target

I have a tendency to lose things so I decided to only bring one pair of sunglasses with me on our vacation. I have been loving my new Miu Miu sunglasses since they seem to go with everything so I brought those – I am currently obsessed with sunglasses and its all I look at online. I just ordered a couple new cute ones that I am excited to show you guys – and they are VERY reasonably priced, which is always nice :)

We have a few more tropical vacations this Summer and I love beach accessories to throw on – especially hair wraps to throw on over partially wet hair that cannot be tamed – salt water makes my hair uncontrollable and so ratty! So after swimming I threw on my new starfish head wrap from Nordstrom and we got some (virgin) pina coladas and had a fun night watching the sunset together.

Thanks for reading – hope you guys have a good day!

Neon Yellow and Floral

 SKIRT: Topshop / TOP: J. Crew / BAG: c/o Rebecca Minkoff  / SUNNIES: Miu Miu / FLATS: Zara

Our last day in St. Croix we went to visit some gardens and I wore my new Topshop skirt, I am really loving full skirts paired with a basic tee for this summer season. I think it may be obvious now after my last couple outfit posts that I am in love with J. Crew’s basic boatneck tees – I have it in red (seen in this post), purple, and this neon yellow one I am wearing here.

Its so good to be back with our puppy – as much as he loved staying at the Bed and Biscuit (cute name eh?) – I think he was ready for snuggles :)

Buck Island

^^I guess I am not very good at applying sunscreen – poor guy :(

^^David wants me to preface that he only had his collar up to block the sun from his neck :)

 SWIMSUIT: Victoria’s Secret / HAT: Calvin Klein / SUNGLASSES: Miu MiuBEACH TOWEL: H&M

 For my birthday yesterday we went on a Catamaran to Buck Island and it was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! I keep saying this, but literally no editing done to these photos, the water is just THAT blue! It was crystal clear and the pictures don’t even do it justice. We did some awesome snorkeling on 3 miles of coral reef and saw so many beautiful fish! David mostly just loved the barracudas :)

St. Croix: Adidas Bikini

One of the benefits of pretty much building Amber’s blog, is knowing all her passwords, having administrative access to all content as well as the ability to make changes. After all, we are husband and wife so there should be no secrets:) Speaking of no secrets, Amber is keeping one from you. She would never advertise this, and she’s asleep right now so there is nothing she can do about it, but today is her her birthday, which is why we are in St Croix! So I just thought you all should know…

Happy birthday sweetheart! You’re the love of my life! I hope you have the best day! I’m so glad that even when you’re 100, I’ll be spending your birthdays with you! Love you!

Your husband,

SWIMSUIT: Revolve Clothing OR in a different color at Net a Porter  / HAT: F21

I am not sure how I was late in the game in finding out about Revolve Clothing.. but it has become my #1 new favorite store. I got this Adidas by Stella McCartney bikini from there and I am in love with it. It is good to have for sportier things you do (or just for the beach in general!) But I got it for when we go kayaking, hiking to waterfalls, fishing, and things like that since it is basically a sports bra you can swim in!

Our second day in St. Croix we woke up early and decided to go find these tide pools we heard were here on the island. We find out where to start the hike and we read it was a 45 min hike. We start hiking…. and hiking… and hiking. After about an hour of hiking up hill in the jungle we realize we have missed something. So we head back down and are almost back to are car and we see a sign.. its literally after 20 steps of starting the hike and its hidden on the right side and leads into even thicker jungle with signs for the tide pools- So we start on the right path and after about two miles it T’s off and you can go right or left… we decided to go right and that was a BAD idea. I am talking we were walking through literal jungle.. vines, endless trees, moss, cob webs, who knows what animals, the whole bit. We got to a point where we could see the tide pools but we were at a cliff and it was almost straight up and down and SO muddy. We decided to go for it and I slid down the entire way on my butt, scratching my arms on tree stumps and rocks the entire way down. I thought I was going to die!!! But we finally made it and it was worth it.

The water here is so blue and everything is SO green! I didn’t boost contrast or brighten or put filters on any of these photos- everything is just that colorful!

Anyways- love you guys and have a fun day!!!
