Friday cannot come soon enough…..warm weather and sunshine awaits me in Florida for my spring break getaway with my family. As we all can commiserate, it’s been a long…super long….painfully long (emphasis on painful) winter. I am so ready to show my toes and wear a dress without an opaque black tight (you know exactly what I’m talking about and are nodding your head right now). As you know, a girl cannot go on spring break without picking up a few new fun items to wear while vacationing. I strongly adhere to this motto and fortunately it is always so convenient for me to shop….just walk out my office door and I am surrounded by enticing clothing, shoes, cosmetics and accessories. This morning I made a few laps around the store and found way too many must-haves….I might need to extend my vacation to accommodate my wardrobe additions! As I do for you every year, I like to share my top picks for the suitcase….drum roll please…. As you can clearly see by my provided picture, I love dresses and this spring is no different. Look at the fun colors in the little Trina Turk number on the top left…love. As I have been preaching to you, white is so on trend and I L-O-V-E this white Veronica Beard dress which has an exposed zipper in the back. (Reminder: White is now a year round color…it’s not just for Memorial Day – Labor Day.) We have Joie in store this season and I loved (yes, I am overusing this word, but it’s how I am feeling about my selections) this easy, casual sundress. Joie also caught my eye with the cute floral short and fun striped top (floral and stripes…you may). Finally, I ventured outside my norm and invested in a maxi skirt by Bailey 44. I always thought you had to be tall to pull-off wearing a maxi skirt or dress, but Patrick assured me that this is not the case and even I (at a whopping 5′ 4″) could wear one. You should definitely try one if you haven’t before….regardless of your height.
Then I went to look at shoes. As I have shared in previous blogs, shoes are my weakness….how could I possibly choose just 1 or 2 pairs when we have so many FABULOUS shoes at Leigh’s?! I needed heels and flats and I couldn’t decide…just glance at my picture. How I love Stuart Weitzman and VC Signature by Vince Camuto, let me count the ways. You have to be proud of me for narrowing it down this much!
Last, but not least, I walked on over to see our amazing makeup artists in cosmetics and they hooked me up with Sun Bum sunscreen and a great moisturizer from Laura Mercier with SPF 15 so that I could enjoy the sun, but still keep my skin safe while I am basking in the rays of the warm sunshine.
Wow, I feel like I just pushed the Easy Button! I have everything I need for vacation and I got it all at my most favorite store….Leigh’s. Let me know if we can get you vacation ready too…we promise lots of fun and fashion!
