I can't believe our vacation has finally arrived. I feel like we booked this trip so long ago. I am so excited for so many reasons but mainly because it will be the first real adult only vacation Matt and I have taken since our honeymoon 8 years ago. We went to St Thomas and St John then and absolutely loved the Virgin Islands, so I can't wait to explore St. Maarten. I welcome any restaurant or island recs if you have traveled there.
I am thrilled that one of my oldest and best friends and her husband will be joining us as well. Since we had our kids we only see each other maybe once a year. It will be such a treat to relax together and catch up. Plus all 4 of us get along so well, we always have a blast together.
I will be taking the week off from my blog but I will post a few snippets on instagram (@snoopnattynat) so follow along there and I will be back in a week with a fun recap!
I did a little last minute shopping this week and found the cutest Maxi Dress at Loft. I have to admit my luck at Loft is hit or miss sometimes. Their clothes don't fit my body that well, but this dress was a perfect fit. The colors are just stunning. It runs on the large side, I am wearing a size 2 so order down a size. If you sign up with your email you can take 25% off your order.
I figure most of our vacation we will be in cover-ups and bathing suits lounging at the beach or pool. But of course we will get slightly dressed up for a few dinners out.
I also packed a few workout clothes in case we hike or walk the island, that are not pictured.
Here is what I am packing as of last night, although I am sure I will add in a few more things before tomorrow. I am notorious for over packing- I like to have options while I am away:)
Sole Society Cover Up | Lolli Cover Up | Pink Stitch Maxi Dress | Alice and Olivia Dress | Marysia One Piece | Banana Republic Bikini | Free People Tee | DL1961 Shorts | JCrew Palm Romper | Marysia Bikini | Gypsy 05 Cover-up | Barbara Cobb Hat | Tkees | Gigi New York Uber Clutch (15% off with code friends15)
Can't forget some fun accessories!!
If you are local my friend Jenny from Theodosia made the first two necklaces. They are a Summer Favorite of mine, I toss them on with everything! You can call and order if you live out of town as well. The third necklace is from LOFT and a total steal.
