Living on Island Time

It's been almost a month of being on summer vacation and I think I'm officially on "island time" where the days are starting to blend together and I never know the day, date or time! (To be honest, it's bringing back some memories of when we first quarantined in 2020!) I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing but I have been at home for a lot of the vacation working on projects and things around the house, which is nice because I feel like I don't have the ability to devote a lot of time to such things when I'm working during the school year. To go along with the "island time" theme, I'm wearing this tropical skirt and rainbow straw bag that was gifted to me by Talbots. When I saw Talbots summer collection, I immediately gravitated toward these two pieces because they were bright, colorful and fun; plus, I love a good tropical vibe!

One of my projects is organizing my closets, which I try to do thoroughly once a year. It has come to my attention that I have a lot of clothes (that's probably not too surprising!) and so I'm trying to focus more on buying some basics that can go with everything. One of my recent purchases was this woven leather belt that I picked up on sale at Anthrologie. I'm always on the lookout for a good belt and this one is such a pretty color that I couldn't pass it up. I have also been trying to buy some basic tops and T-shirts that I can add to my wardrobe. Lately, I've been obsessed with ruffle details, like the one on this cute blue top. As you can see, I paired both items with my island pieces for a tropical yet chic look!

  1. I think those Talbots pieces were made with your style in mind! They are darling, especially paired together! And I love the pink woven belt. I have a rattan colored one and I think I need to expand my collection! The pink is too cute!

  2. Island time is the best time! As a huge parrot fan, I adore your skirt. The rainbow bag is an excellent match, and the solid belt and tee tie it all together. Finally, I have to confess that I really enjoy organizing my own closets. Maybe because it's kind of like shopping, or curating a store. Have fun!

  3. I was slowly scrolling down on this post and I kept saying: Oh oh oooh! What a very very beautiful look! What a amazing skirt!
