The title of this post is especially appropriate since I feel like I have been on ‘island time’ getting back to my routine! It was a whirlwind of a holiday season with Christmas, New Year’s Eve, a wedding (to my great guy Kevin) & a honeymoon! Whew … I’m getting a little tired thinking about it! Seriously, I had wayyyy too much fun. But, don’t worry – the honeymoon really recharged my batteries for 2015! I had the most incredible time in St. Lucia with my brand new hubby and of course got to bring along some of my favorite pieces perfect for a sunny getaway. So, here are a few snaps of our journey. I hope they will inspire you, too, to follow the sun … and when you do, can you pack me in your suitcase?!

Get your metallics going, party people – it’s time to ring in the New Year! What a perfect opportunity to re-purpose this skirt (just add fur) and say thanks so much for following along in 2014! I’m literally ringing in 2015 with wedding bells … a warm tropical trip … and coming back next year with plenty of fashion inspiration to share! Oh, can’t wait! In the meantime, wishing you a sparkly NYE …

metallicmainmetallic2metallic3metallicfixmetallicsmileWho says you have to stick to certain colors during the holiday season? Not me! I do have a staple and that’s gold which is my starting point. Why not mix in some neon? After all, doesn’t it go “may your days be merry & bright?”

goldsweatermaingold1gold7gold4gold8golddetailNothing says ‘gold’ & ‘sparkle’ quite like the holiday season! I love the ease of this sweater and it really glistens with the addition of a little bit of color (this pink-ish take on red is super fresh). Stick to a gold clutch & baubles and you’re ready for whatever fête December brings (hopefully more than one)!

pinkstripemainpinkstripe4pinkstripedetailpinkstripe8pinkstripe1pinkstripe7The combo of pink + camel on this sweater makes it feel fresh … and as you know, I’m loving my camel vest so I was more than happy to create another pairing of this duo. I kept it as monochromatic as possible by sticking to accents of gold which always ups the glam factor (even when you’re wearing other simple pieces). Staying true to my two-tone mood, I finished the outfit with a (pink) statement bib necklace since it’s a great accent for the feminine v-neck.

It’s a great outerwear piece for a dress and also plays nice with your favorite jeans. I’m loving the combo with green and couldn’t resist adding my go-to sparkle.  I don’t mind fall when it looks this colorful (leaves included)!

pinkpawsmainpinkpaws1pinkpaws5pinkpaws2pinkpaws6My favorite thing about color is the way it makes you feel and my favorite thing about pink is that it always makes me feel happy! This t-shirt dress is a great combo of pink and neutrals, making it easy to pair with fall staples in a bright, fun way. I pulled out the almond in my vest and boots to keep the overall look light and added matching pink jewelry for the finishing touches.

You know when I feature an item more than once, I looove it twice as much! I recently showed this handbag with a printed dress but since some of my favorite tassels are the subject of this series, it definitely warrants another look!  The tassel (which is removable, but why would you?!?) adds the perfect amount of interest to an otherwise neutral bag. Another great feature of this go to piece in my closet is that it’s a fold-over style, making it versatile for both day & night use.

maximainmaxitassekmaxi5maxi8maxionebagmaximaxi11maxi7It was love at first sight when I found this necklace. The neon tassel gives a little extra zing to many of my already colorful outfits and has been really easy to incorporate. Here I styled it with one of my favorite fall maxi dresses and added a jean vest. I like how the different shades of green (dress, bangles & necklace) play off one another and lead your eye straight to the tassel! A strong accessory can really make a difference. :)
