Happy Friday! Woohoo! Just a quick little post today with a casual vacation outfit (I know it’s not exactly relevant, but I promise I’ll get back to posting winter outfits soon…). I love this bright and bold J.Crew hibiscus print (still available as a bikini or swimsuit) – in the perfect shade of electric coral. Paired with textured lace shorts and barely any accessories, this vacation combo is about as easy as it gets.

Have a lovely weekend!

Outfit details:

Top: J.Crew // Shorts: Ark & Co scalloped lace shorts (see below for more like these) // Bag: Loeffler Randall mini agenda crossbody (on sale) // Sandals: J.Crew (heeled version here) //

Looking back at these beach photos makes my heart ache a little (especially since I’m writing this on my sofa while wrapped in a faux fur throw and wearing a flannel pajama set…). Sigh. Anyways, during our vacation in Costa Rica, I had a chance to try out a bright and bold bikini from Aussie swimwear brand Triangl. After months of admiring their ridiculously gorgeous Instagram feed and the collection of stylish and sleek suits featured – I was excited to pick one out for myself. I decided on The Milly (one of their most popular styles) in an electric blue called “Santa Rosa Splash” and it arrived just in time for my vacation.

On multiple occasions during our trip, we got a little adventurous and hiked over some crazy rock formations to find hidden white sand beaches. Luckily, these suits stay in place (no riding up or shifting around on your bum) and they don’t get clingy or baggy when wet. Perfect for the rare occasion when you aren’t just lounging in the sand. Since Triangl bikinis are made from neoprene, they boast the same benefits as wetsuits: they’re structured, quick-drying and fit like a second skin – all reasons why this became my go-to suit in Costa Rica. Plus, you can’t beat the ultra-flattering cut and sleek black piping! I even pretended like the neoprene automatically granted surfing skills, too. If you’re new to Triangl, check out their collection of bikini sets (I’ve got my eye on this one and this one) and try one out for yourself.

Hi, remember me?! I can’t believe I’ve gone so long with posting, but I guess it’s always good to take small breaks from the things you love (absence does make the heart grow fonder, after all). In case you haven’t seen my overactive Instagram account recently, I just spent a lovely and relaxing vacation in Costa Rica – and I’m returning to the States feeling recharged and ready to get back into a routine – with my blog, and life in general.

As cliché as it sounds, this little hiatus gave me a chance to think about my approach to blogging in 2015 and helped inspire some new, creative ideas for future posts. Since I’m now an engaged lady and planning a wedding in a short time frame (aiming for September 2015), I’ll be doing my best to keep everything – blog, work, life, wedding – as balanced and stress-free as possible. We’ll see how that goes. And while I might include some bridal tidbits every once in awhile, I promise not to turn this into a wedding blog (there are already too many good ones out there as it is)… but you can totally follow my Pinterest board if you’re interested!

Anyways, here’s my first post of 2015. Better late than never! I was all about rompers on this trip — and this little ASOS number was on repeat (until I spilled on it one night…oops). Shooting outfit photos in warm weather definitely did not suck and I feel pretty lucky that I was able to sneak in a few pics here and there. Surprisingly enough, these photos captured the first and last time I wore heels on my trip. My poor little tootsies needed a break. I hope your year is off to a great start and that you’ll continue reading now that I’m back in action!
