As I’m sitting here at work staring at the clock wishing that it was 5 o’clock, my mind keeps wandering and daydreaming about summer. I LIVE, breathe and lust for summer! One of my favorite things about the summer, besides the beach, the fun, the ice cream, the endless amount of daylight (etc.) is summer vacation! It’s the time when we can go out and explore the world around us. Summer here in NY is great. There is so much to do and so much to see. While there is so much do in your hometown, it’s still great to use this opportunity to explore ‘merica! There are several vacation wardrobe must-haves that you NEED this summer!

jumpsuits

A summer vacation wardrobe must-have is definitely a jumpsuit/romper. They are so light and easy to just throw on. You will look super cute and dressy yet you will be so comfy.  They can easily be paired with some heels or flats, chunky necklace or any type of fun summer accessory.  They look great in any pattern, color, or material.  These are a few of my favorites that are cute yet budget friendly.  The olive jumpsuit from New York and Company is only $39!  It features a tie around the waist, which I love because it adds shape and fits nicely around your curves.  It can also camouflage your belly a little bit for those of you who suffer “the bulge” like myself.  The middle one from NecessaryClothing.com features a great flower print that’s perfect for the summer.  It’s for the cute girly girl in all of us.  The last jumpsuit is one of my favorites because, as you can all tell by now, I LOVE leopard print!  It’s the feisty latina in me that makes leopard one of my favorite prints of all! It’s edgy, fun, and sexy.

A pair of white pants or jeans are essential for the summer months. They provide a fresh clean look and can be paired with virtually anything. Another must-have for the summer is a bright colored handbag. The brighter the better! I love hot pink, bright blue, yellow, and purple.  They’re great for brightening up those miserable summer days when you’re stuck inside of an office wishing you were outside.  My favorite accessory for summer is a big floppy hat! They’re perfect for those lazy days spent by the beach or hanging out poolside.  They do a great job of keeping your face from getting sun-burnt, while still staying stylish.

A summer essential hands down is the perfect summer dress.  I wear a dress almost everyday during the summer.  The perfect summer dress is one that is super comfortable and keeps you cool and dry all day long. I love the floral dress pictured from target.  It’s short and flow-y and will keep you feeling great all summer.  A maxi dress is another must for the summer! They basically go with everything! You can pair them with a cute pair of flats or a chunky heel.  You can dress it up or dress it down.  It doesn’t matter how you decide to wear your maxi, you will still look flawless!  Crop tops are also really big this season.  Dare to bare it all in this sexy summer piece.  I own the black one at the top, its from Forever21 and says, “I believe that I love fashion much more than anybody I’ve ever met.”  I love it! 🙂

Here’s how my summer looks so far!

Fun in the sun! Ocean City Beach

Yesterday my friends and I went to Ocean City Beach, NJ! It was a beautiful day, perfect Sunday to get away from the hustle and bustle of NYC. #sundayfunday

We headed to Jersey around 9am and finally arrived around noon. It was beautiful. The OC is such a pretty beach town with beautiful houses. It seemed like a nice community with very nice people. As we were driving around, we saw people just hanging out in the yard, everyone, of course had on bathing suits in the street. They had a number of nice restaurants, many of course were seafood joints. The boardwalk was so nice and featured many places to eat, hang out and play. Almost every place served crab cakes, funnel cakes, corn dogs and curly fries!

Overall it was a nice mini-road trip. Next time, I would definitely stay there for the weekend. The boardwalk had a Ferris wheel and a mini-water park. It was such a beautiful day. I encourage you all to go visit NJ! http://www.ocnj.us/

Summertime fine :)

I’m back ladies and gentlemen! It’s been a little while but I’m back to doing what I love….blogging! These past couple months I’ve been crazy busy! I’m finishing up my Master’s at St. John’s University, trying to pursue my “dream career”, and working like crazy! I’m actually working at Macy’s in the corporate buying office. I am a Merchant Office Assistant in the Fine Jewelry department. (Fancy title that basically means I do boring clerical work). I’m learning a ton about the retail world. It’s brutal out there! My favorite part about the job is going out with vendors. The vendors treat us amazing (cause they want our business!) I’ve never had so many free lunches until I started working here! Anyway these have been some of my favorite summer outfits so far…hope everyone is having an amazing summer! More to come!
