So Much Green

Hello Lovelies!
The rain is gone, the weather is perfect & everything is so green. I am going outside as much as possible to enjoy these perfect weather days. I've been working out on my deck every chance I can get. Soaking up that vitamin D & breeze.

Pet Talker

A recent study showed that 94% of pet owners talked to their fluffy critters as if they were human.
I know I do! With a face like that how could you not?! She's cute & she doesn't talk back, the perfect conversation companion. Do I have any fellow animal talkers out there? If so, you aren't as crazy as you may have once thought because apparently everyone is doing it!

Oh Tippi

J. Crew Sweater
J.Crew always manages to get it right! There new line of Tibi sweaters that they have launched (a few you can still only pre-order) are some of the best staple wardrobe items around. They are a beautiful light wool that hit at the top of the hip to give a flattering fit. They have heaps of solid colors to choose from. or if you are more adventurous there are the patterned options. I myself am dreaming of the bottom grey one. You?

Planning Ahead

I am always planning a season ahead. So I am already submerged in all things fall. 
I have been going through my photos from last fall & they make me want cold weather so bad!
Boots, sweaters & tights how my heart aches to wear you soon! I would live in fall all year long if it was possible. Am I alone on this one?

Secrets The Vine

I just got back from vacation and boy is it hard to come home when you have been staying at this place! Secrets the Vine is the all-inclusive resort we stayed at on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. It is an all you could eat and drink resort with no kids! It had so much to offer its guests. They had fun night entertainment every night, the bluest ocean I have ever seen and yummy pretzels (yes - it really was a highlight of my trip, they were that good). The employees where extremely nice and the service was over the top. I have no complaints other than that I wish they had a chocolate fountain at every meal! I just wanted to share with you a few of my pictures of the outside of the resort as well as one of the restaurants just so you can get a glimpse of what Secrets has to offer.

Yummy breakfast with fresh fruit bar, pastry station & mounds of bacon.
Pool chair in the water, yes please!
Gorgeous leaf design that wraps around the windows of the hotel!
Hello turquoise beach!
1 of the 4 pools & a poolside bar
Which fork am I suppose to use again?
One of those beach chairs is calling your name!

I had such a great week at Secrets and I am already wanting to go back! Secrets has a whole chain of resorts all over, I may just need to go check out a few of them like Montego Bay and Punta Cana. To see more photos of the resort (entertainment, views from the gym, ect...) check out my instagram @myscuttle.

I Can't Be Bothered

Its hot, its rainy which means that it is humid here in the south. Today is one of those days where I can't be bothered with any tight or clingy clothes regardless of how cute they are. To survive the weather I am layering three different sheer pieces in order to keep cool and not look scandalous. Finishing the outfit off with puddle jumping approved boots! Stay cool out there!

Pack Light but Right

I am headed to Mexico on Monday! I am so excited. I will be staying at Secrets the Vine in Cancun & I can't wait (I will keep you updated with photos & stories along the way). That means that the vaca packing has commenced. The number one issue when packing for women is shoes! They take up alot of space & you need a few different pairs for various reasons (but you don't need 7 or 8 pairs like some ladies like to think :). So lets talk over what you actually need to bring when headed to a beach vacation.
1 - A pair of wedges or heels.
Reason being that you will inevitably go out to a nicer dinner or maybe a show. So a pair of shoes that will dress up a sun dress is a must. I pick wedges over heels because to me they dress up an outfit but they don't  go over board. Some heels scream "I should be walking the red carpet" and that is not your aim. Wedges always feel like the perfect fit for a summer time dress.
 2 - A pair of flats that go with almost anything.
A solid pair of flats should be your travel go to shoes. There comfortable, easy to pack and go with practically everything. Plus this is what you wear when you go to the airport so that you aren't that crazy person in the security line that holds everyone up because it takes you 5 minutes to get your shoes off. (I said flats that "go with almost anything" & I am firm believer in that leopard matches almost anything!)
3 - A pair of sandals that can be worn in an outfit & at the pool.
Pick a multi-purpose sandal to bring. Instead of bringing a pair of flip flops for the pool & a pair of sandals to match with your shorts & dresses, pick a shoe that does both. A flat sandal that is easy to get on & off but that are cute enough to wear in an outfit if you go shopping or exploring.
 4 - ALWAYS bring a pair of sneakers.
You just never know what adventures you will go on. So many times I have been on a relaxing vaca that has lead to taking a hike to some awesome ruins or going biking through the national park. So yes, it is vaca and exercise may be the farthest thought from your mind but bring them just in case! Don't want to say no to a grand adventure just because you don't have the right shoes.

4 pairs of shoes! That is manageable and you will be prepared for anything. 
Now I am off to pack up my 4 pairs for Mexico. The ocean is calling my name!

Lets Have A Moment

Let's have a real moment here for a second. 
Sharing is caring right? So I am going to share with you the truth. 
Having to stare at and critique photos of yourself every day is an extremely humbling experience!
I am not perfect and I do not aim to be but I do always want to present my best. Well in photos you often get to see just how crazy you actually are. The crazy faces you actually make and never realized, you see! The horrible posture you actually have, you see! How those jeans actually make your butt look, you see! 
Like I said... very humbling experience.
