Shopping the summer sales

This post is for anyone who, like me, is heading somewhere warm this fall/winter and wants to pick up a few items while the deals are good! We’re heading to Mexico at the end of October for a wedding and we’re all very excited. Well, Emmylou doesn’t really understand but I’ve been telling her we’re going to the biggest beach she’s ever seen and that’s all she needs to hear… haha. We’re going for 9 days, so we’ll need a fair amount of summer clothing to get us through and conveniently now is the time to pick up summer clothes at amazing prices so I’ve been doing a little online perusing…

First off… the swim suit. I only have one swimsuit currently, and I figure I’ll need a spare because I plan on spending A LOT of time in the water. I love this fuchsia one-piece halter with a cute knot detail in pink. I also really like this blue and white stripped two piece with ruffles on the sleeves, and this purple one piece with cut out detailing is super funky and sexy. And to go with my swim suit I obviously need a couple of hat options… I love this fedora style one and this floppy crocheted one.

These draw-string linen shorts in grey would be perfect for casual vacation days and this white and navy stripped tee (again with a cute knot detail), this James Perse v-neck in pink, and this lace-trim tunic would all be good for daytime lounging. For the wedding, or for a dinner out, I like this white eyelet shift dress as well as this floral print fit-and-flare. And also how cute and Mexico appropriate is this p.j. romper?



And of course I can’t forget Emmylou! All of her summer clothes are getting pretty tight so I need to size up and get her a few new things to bring. I love this little pink and orange halter swimsuit, and this adorable two piece (seriously… I can’t even…). This jean skirt with this tie-back tank, this blue and white floral print tank, and this blue and white stripped tank are all super cute and comfy looking. I also like this patterned green shift dress and this grey swing dress for the little lady. For the wedding this purple peplum swing dress and these little t-strap sandals would be perfect.



The furthest South I’ve been is Arizona so I’m quite excited about this trip… even though it’s put a bit of a wrench in our baby number two planning due to Zika concerns. At this rate Emmylou will be graduating High School by the time we get around to giving her a little baby brother or sister to play with! But how could we say no to Mexico?
