Summer Style with Forever 21

If you’ve been following me for awhile I’m sure you’ve noticed that Forever 21 is one of my favorite places to shop for cute affordable summer clothes. I feel like I can always find unique pieces at a steal. I can literally spend hours scouring the site which almost always results in a massive cart of 50 things (I’m not kidding, this has happened to me on several occasions). I’ve especially been impressed with the Forever 21 skirt and crop top selection over the past few months. It’s no surprise that I found this adorable denim mini skirt and bustier crop top recently and had to have them both! 

This denim skirt is so different from the typical one with its adorable ruffled bottom. I can see myself pairing it with bodysuits or even a fun graphic tee and sneakers. I think this skirt is great for both casual or dressy wear and the price is amazing too - can you believe it’s only $22? I would absolutely bring this on my next beach vacation and style it with other cute crop tops.  For sizing I would suggest sticking to your true size. I’m wearing a small and the fit is great and very flattering. 

I’ve said it many times before and I’ll say it again, I’m a complete sucker for a white top (especially crop tops) in the summertime. I probably have 10 or more white crop tops just from Forever 21. The selection is just so good and I always convince myself I need another one to add to the collection. This bustier crop top is unique and so different from the others in my closet. I couldn’t believe it when I saw that this top was only $18, such a good deal for the amount of wear I’ll get out of it. I usually always size up in Forever 21 tops. I’m wearing a large in this one and it fits really well. 

If you’re a fan of this outfit and looking for more affordable and stylish summer outfits I highly recommend going to Forever21.com. They have a huge selection that I definitely recommend you check out! I can’t promise that you won’t end up with a massive cart of things but can assure you that you’ll look super cute in whatever you find! P.S. Theres also a Black Friday in July special going on now through 7/19, with up to 80% off select styles !

Shopping Luxury on eBay

ebay.JPG

If you’ve been following me for awhile you know that I share affordable and attainable style daily on my Instagram. I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to spend a fortune to put a nice outfit together. With that being said, every girl does have that one thing she splurges on, and recently for me it was this Gucci bag I snagged on eBay. As much as I love sharing affordable items with you all, I also have an appreciation for luxury items and am willing to invest on a designer bag that will last for years and years.

I’m honestly new to buying designer bags but I’ve always heard great things about eBay and their authenticate program. This program means I can shop for luxury items on eBay with total confidence because I know that experts verify their authenticity. I’ve had my eye on this Gucci bag for months and finally decided to treat myself. eBay has a great selection of luxury bags from brands like Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton. There’s also an eBay trick I want to share. Simply filter to "authenticated" products using the toolbar on the left hand side so you can search for any specific brand or bag, then click on the filter to show only authenticated results.

Current favorite luxury bags on eBay:

Honestly narrowing it down to just one bag was difficult when I started scrolling on the authenticate program- there were so many others I liked! It’s also comforting to know that here is a money back guarantee with the program so if you have any doubts that your item is real you can return it to be re-examined. If eBay finds that the item isn’t authentic they will issue a full refund.

Another thing that makes me want to shop luxury on eBay is they host events like the one currently running until June 1st where major luxury sellers offer discounts. I’m all about a discount and if I can get one on a gently used designer handbag I’m all for it. I’m so happy with my experience shopping for a designer bag on eBay and highly recommend it.

Travel Guide : The Pointe 30A

the pointe 30a-1-3.jpg

I’m so excited to finally share this post with you guys! I’m sure most of you remember that earlier this month I stayed at The Pointe in Rosemary Beach with a few of my blogger friends. This was my first time visiting this part of Florida and honestly I fell in LOVE with the area! The Pointe is a boutique, hotel-style resort in Rosemary Beach off 30A highway. Traveling from Dallas was super easy with a quick nonstop flight and 30 minute drive from Panama City Airport to our hotel. We rented a car for our trip since we heard Ubers can take forever for pickups. If you’re like us and too impatient to deal with that I highly recommend renting a car when visiting this area. ResortQuest is the exclusive rental management company that manages The Pointe property and you can book your next trip through their website.

I’m breaking down my trip below. More on where we stayed, what we did and where we ate !

Where we stayed: The Pointe by ResortQuest

We were all honestly blown away at how nice our room was. If you saw the tour on my insta story you know what I’m talking about! It honestly felt like we were in a luxury apartment versus a hotel, which we obviously enjoyed. There were a total of 3 bedrooms that were huge and all had spacious bathrooms. Our hotel had an open floor plan that made the living area and kitchen very comfortable and great for entertaining. It’s definitely not necessary to go out for all your meals when staying at The Pointe. We enjoyed breakfast and coffee in the comfort our place every morning. We also had a large dining table, fireplace and wrap around balcony patio which made it feel even more like a home away from home.

The Pointe is in the perfect location, walking distance to Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach and directly across the street from shops and restaurants at 30 Avenue. A short bike ride or walk will take you to the sugar-white sand and beautiful water of South Walton beaches.

The Pointe has a gorgeous resort style pool with cabanas and lounge chairs surrounding it. This area is perfect for relaxing all day. I love how convenient everything is, if you get hungry there’s Big Bad Breakfast next to the pool where you can order breakfast or lunch and then get back to laying out! I also appreciate the fact that The Pointe has an updated fitness center with a mirror virtual trainer and peloton bike! I don’t always work out on trips but when the gym is updated it definitely makes me more inclined to go.

What to do:

Beach Day - A beach day (or several) is a must in Rosemary Beach! The Pointe offers two complimentary chairs and umbrellas at the beach that is walking distance or a short bike ride away. We packed a cooler and had a picnic on the beach one day and it was SO nice. The beaches are stunning in this area so it’s also a great place to take pictures with the fam or your friends!

Explore - We took our jeep out and explored different parts of 30A. My favorite area was Alys Beach, where the most stunning homes are located and everything around is seriously picture perfect. It’s a great spot to take pictures or just walk around and admire the real estate.

There’s also a great area called The Hub that I recommend checking out. It’s a great outdoor space filled with a few restaurants, ice cream and snow cone shops! There’s also a stage and big screen where they have live music, host movie nights, etc! We had the best time here watching the Kentucky Derby on the big screen.

Pool Day - Start out with breakfast at Big Bad Breakfast and then post up in a poolside cabana at The Pointe until lunch time. I highly recommend trying George’s at Alys Beach for lunch. They have a super cute patio and the coconut curry chicken salad paired with a mimosa will win you over.

Where to eat:

La Crema Tapas & Chocolate - Definitely my favorite dinner of the trip! You have to try the cheese fondue, brussel sprouts, pasta Del Mar and chocolate fondue. Enjoy a sunset happy hour at The Pearl or Pescado first and then walk over to La Crema to end your night!

The Pearl - This hotel is GORGEOUS! I highly recommend going to take some pictures during sunset and having drinks at their rooftop bar, Havana.

Bud & Alleys Taco Bar - We spent Cinco de Mayo of all days at this cute taco spot! It was the perfect place to enjoy tacos and margaritas. Make sure to try the fish tacos!

Pescado - Absolutely loved our dinner here! This is another restaurant perfect for watching the sunset on the patio. The outdoor tables are open seating and indoor tables require a reservation. Plan ahead and make your reservations early because it stays packed!

Great Southern Cafe - We had a great dinner here and I loved the atmosphere and casual vibe of it. The menu offers the best southern style dishes and I promise you won’t leave on an empty stomach!
