Fashion Friday: Shopping for Mexico

Things I simply MUST HAVE for a weekend in Mexico

My college girlfriends and I are heading off to Puerta Vallarta next week for a girls getaway to celebrate all of us turning 40 this year. I'm soooo glad to have had this trip planned after I spent my 40th birthday in the dark.

Today (tonight by the time I finish this post) I want to shop for a few things to take on my trip.

Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses

Ray-Ban Wayfarers are back in my friends! And, since "Risky Business" is one of my all-time faves and still has a good bit of MoJo (even if the star has since lost his) I simply must have some.

I may opt for the tortoise shell color rather than classic black but that's simply because I look better in brown tones.

Fabulous SPF 50 Sunhat

I know what you are thinking... 'fabulous' and 'SPF 50' simply cannot be used in the same sentence. Right? WRONG! Have you checked out Coolibar yet? I bought girls great hats for the beach and pool from Coolibar a few years ago and they were great.

This is the one I'm eyeing for me:

Travel-worthy, shapable, and UPF 50+, this hat is chic and will protect my scalp, face and neck from the Mexico sun.


Bright-colored Sundress

After spending the past 4 months buried in my brown, puffy down coat I need some color!!!

Thankfully Fresh Produce sent me a beautiful cafe wrap dress in the Fall to review. This will be the first time I get to wear it and I am so excited!


This one is in 'sunrise' but mine is the bright 'Sangria' color. The fact that I chose a color that shares the name of a terrific vacation drink is pure coincidence!


Summertime Clutch

I love to clutch and this bright orange Julie Apple Flip It Convertible Clutch is going to look great tucked under my arm at the pool in Mexico and at the pool this summer back home. Plus, with the right outfit, it can convert easily to an casual evening bag with a sundress or jeans.

What else do you think I need to buy?

Fashionista Friday - Ready for the Pool with JAG, Ray-Bans and Fit Flops

That's a complete lie. I'm not at all ready to be in a bathing suit. But I'll do it for the kids.

So what am I going to wear?

Suit and tie

It just so happens that last year I bought a really fabulous (and expensive) Jag swim suit at the beach and of course I see it THIS year at Costco for half the price. BUT... they also had this Wrap Skirt by Jag suit at half price so I bought it! It's cover up my 'trouble' spots (or at least the ones causing the most trouble) with a built-in skirt that ties on the side:

It's about time I treated myself to some grown-up glasses. And by that I mean shades that cost more than $10 and that I purchase annually at a rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike.

I'm loving the Ray-Ban Bubble Wrap Aviator Sunglasses kinda like these:

Fit Flops

I bought these last year and I don't think they ever left my feet. FitFlops are the most comfortable thongs I've ever had. They were perfect for strolling all day at Disney, and they work your tushy too! Each year the first day or so I wear them I notice my legs are a little sore and I forget why (obviously it's NOT because I'm working out).

I think I need a new pair and I'm eyeing up these silver FitFlops :
