Back from my trip to Aruba... which was everything I needed: lots of relaxing by the pool and the beach. Of course I got majorly sunburned, and I'm peeling a bit (ugh) which is gross, but I'm still happy I got some color and was able to have a great time.
This outfit was inspired by this photo. I loved the preppy look and remembered that I had the Piazza jacket in navy blue. The bright stripes make me happy and have eased the transition back into the real world a little bit better.
Who doesn't love pink and orange stripes? This knit dress is so easy and comfortable to wear, I'm sure I'll reach for it a lot this summer. Today it is doing its job of covering up the peeling that is covering my chest. =(
I got these awesome Chanel sunglasses for a great deal through a work event. I haven't splurged on designer shades in a very long time (normally I toss in a pair of $5 F21s into my purse) but I loved the slight cat-eye look of these, and of course the signature Chanel camellias on the side.
I've decided that yellow shoes go with just about everything.
I wish I took some more photos in Aruba... but here are a few that I wanted to share. It was such a beautiful place to be, I love the beach and laying out in the sun (even if I have to pay the price later).

Last day in Aruba.
The hotel I stayed at was the Aruba Marriot Resort & Stellaris Casino. It was a great time, everyone at the hotel is extremely helpful and welcoming, and I couldn't have asked for a nicer vacation!
Now it's back to the grind....
