Lime Life


Shoes: Kate Spade
Necklace: Lilly Pulitzer (Similar)

I love how green everything is right now.  Even though spring break is over, I was driving to class this morning just enjoying the drive and how gorgeous the trees look with their fresh green leaves.  I love lime and pink together, so this dress is perfect in my opinion.  And how cute is the Stinger print!  I adore how the bees are outlined in shimmery gold.

Beach Shenanigans

Although today my week at the beach comes to an end, I had such a fabulous, relaxing time.  I was able to have lots of "me" time.  I went for my daily beach run, tanned, shopped, slept a lot and styled several outfits for the blog.  It was wonderful.  Spending some time with my family and my sweet puppy was great also.  Here are a few snapshots from the week.
Seaside Stylin'
People Stylewatch was my must have magazine for the beach.  And as always, I love my Jacks.
Rainy days at the beach call for some shopping.
Visiting the Kate Spade Outlet store is always fun.
Yellow + Navy = Bright & Sunny
My runs on the beach call for some shell hunting as well.  I always love to find a pretty shell or two.

Something else I love is when I can make connections with people on social media.  New Smyrna Beach is such a small place, but I'm always so surprised at how many of my followers visit this quaint little place as well.  It warms my heart :)

Wishing everyone a happy Saturday!  Stay Tuned!

P.S. If you love your Jacks like I do, or if you're wanting a pair of Jacks to love, be sure to enter the Jack Rogers + Marley Lilly giveaway for your chance to win a pair of monogrammed sandals plus a monogrammed hat and tote bag.  You can enter now through April 16th!

Connect The Dots


Top: J.Crew
Flats: Kate Spade
Sun Hat: Anthropologie

How darling is this connect the dots skirt from Juliana's Boutique!  When it arrived, I immediately pictured it paired with pops of pink.  Polka dots are a basic staple, so it's fun to play around with them and see just how fun you can style them.  Juliana's Boutique has some precious pieces for spring for a great price as well.  I absolutely love this little scalloped number and these lace shorts.  For more inspiration from Juliana's Boutique, you can follow along on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

How do you like to style polka dots?

Poolside Tanning


My poolside / beach must-haves consist of two fabulous companies: RahRah Designs and Hayden Reis

RahRah Designs
If its not moving, monogram it!  This monogrammed bandeau from RahRah Designs has been an exciting part of my spring break at the beach.  Being able to wear my monogram while I tan has to be one of the most brilliant ideas ever.  And what makes it even cuter are the monogrammed bottoms to match!  There are many colors to choose for the bandeaus and bottoms.  RahRah Designs is the perfectly preppy monogram solution for swimsuits.  Let's just say, this is without a doubt my new favorite suit and every preppy girl should have one.

Hayden Reis
Spacious, light weight and perfectly preppy, how darling are these accessories from Hayden Reis!  The Flamingo Ditty Bag is pretty fabulous.  Not only is it extra large with so many pockets, but it's waterproof and perfect for the beach and pool environment.  The colors are my favorite, and my initials are on it!  I always hate it when my sunscreen makes the items in my beach bag sticky.  Now, I can keep it in the sunscreen bag.  This makes me quite the happy girl.  Also, the beach bud bag is perfect for holding my valuables, coverup, or anything I don't want to get sandy or sticky.  I'm also crushing over the mesh sea shell pouches (says the avid shell hunter over here).  I am so excited to be part of the ambassador program for Hayden Reis, so if you'd like to know more on an item, feel free to email me.

Aren't these companies simply fabulous?

Seersucker Sightings

Yesterday, I was making a quick trip to J.Crew.  I literally had five minutes to spare and had to exchange a top I had previously purchased for a different size.  Walking by the table of chinos, my eyes caught sight of a fabulous pair of two toned seersucker shorts.  I snatched them up without even trying them on, and I'm so glad I did.  I'm obsessed.  They look fabulous with a navy top.  This certain pair of shorts is why I'm blogging on a few seersucker findings.  If you've been following my blog for some time, you know I'm a sucker for seersucker.  

Shorts: 1 / 2
Swim: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4
Everything Else: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4

Are you currently loving a certain seersucker item?

Sun, Sand and Sea


Flip Flops: C/O Tory Burch (Shoes at Surrey)
Sun Hat: Anthropologie
Sunnies: Banana Republic (similar)
Phone Case: Tory Burch
Coverup: Target
Swimsuit: Rah Rah Designs (More to come!) 

I am spending spring break at my favorite beach, New Smyrna Beach, Florida.  I was so eager for this long awaited break to begin (longing to be in relaxation mode).  Being in need of a new pair of flip flops, I stopped by my favorite local shoe boutique in Augusta…Shoes at Surrey.  I am a huge supporter of shopping local, so of course, I love shopping my favorite shoe designers here.  I will soon be sharing a shopping tour of this fun shoe boutique.  I also picked up this darling coverup at Target!  Yes, Target does it again.  I also like pulling my hair up in an effortless side messy bun for the beach.  This way, a sun hat will still fit over it and the wind blown look just adds to the effortless style.  These are just a few of my beach favorites! 

Stay tuned for more!
