Summer Vaca!

J and I leave NEXT TUESDAY for summer vacation! We're heading up to Block Island, Rhode Island for 6 days. You have no idea how excited I am. With my job, I haven't gone on a summer vacation in 4 years. That's pretty ridiculous, considering I grew up going to the Outer Banks EVERY summer with my family.

Our friends are getting married up there on Saturday, the 18th, and we decided to just make a vacation out of the wedding and stay all week. We've rented a house with a bunch of other couples, and I'm so excited to relax and enjoy the beautiful island. I've never been there, but Jake has and he's shown me his old pictures...it looks gorgeous! I'm excited to ride the ferry over to the island - I've never been on a ferry boat before!

In preparation for the trip, I, of course, have been shopping for some beach clothes. Here's a few things I've picked up for our trip:

Obviously, you can't go to the beach without a new bikini! Loving the seersucker and the flirty ruffle trim. I got this color (rich purple) because it's so summery...love it!

J.Crew knit jersey dress in charcoal. Perfect to thrown on after the beach and I also plan on wearing it to the welcome dinner for the wedding on Friday evening, dressed up with fun jewelry!
Ruffle trim polos - from Target! They look exactly like the ones from J.Crew...except they are only $12!! I definitely stocked up on these as they are a perfect staple and go with everything. Love!

Jeweled sandals from Old Navy to wear to the wedding with my new print maxi dress. I'm so excited to wear flats to the wedding - I will be able to dance all night!!
Beach countdown is ON! t-6 days!

I absolutely love that bathing suit. I really like the black dress as well, but not nearly as much as the suit.

How vute! I like the ruffles on your see sucker bathing suit. I got two seer sucker bathing suits from Americal Eagle after the summer was over for only 3.50 each piece!! :) Such a steal!
