Going on vacation is one of the best things we can do for our mental health. It is a place to unplug, recharge, and reflect on what you want out of life. My husband and I try to escape the rat race once a year around this time. Our trip also coordinates with our wedding anniversary (not really on purpose, it just works best for his schedule). In my mind, there is only one downside about coming back from vacation, catching up on laundry and housework. We got back into Oklahoma City about midnight on Friday, and I have been doing laundry ever since. I cannot wait to share more about our trip to Costa Rica with you very soon.

This handbag was perfect for traveling! When flying, I find it a must to have a bag with a zipper. I had a terrible experience once with my bag rolling over and all of my items falling out (it was so embarrassing). Another time I spilled an entire glass on top of my handbag (and all over the nice guy sitting beside me)! All I can say is bless up for zippers. I scored this bag during a Kate Spade surprise sale; it has been patiently waiting to make its debut. I love a good statement bag; they are instant conversation starters. I was pulled aside multiple times in the airport, everyone wondering where they could get this beautiful bag.

I am sad to say that this dress is almost sold out. However, it comes in a microgingham print (there are only two sizes left, and it's on mega sale)! I wore this exact outfit out to dinner on vacation. It's so easy to toss on and go! I haven't decided if I like it more with or without the belt. For length, I ordered it one size up. I have a booty, and sometimes it makes dresses way too short (and nobody wants to see that) for the office or church.

The earrings and necklace make this outfit pop! I happened to find these pom-pom accessories at a boutique in Stillwater, The Wooden Nickel. They do not have them listed online. However, they do still have them in stock (I double checked on Friday). This store always has the best selection of trendy jewelry at varying price points. The necklace is what caught my eye during my last shopping trip. I walked around the store for ten minutes trying to find the perfect earring to compliment them. I was checking out and saw them across the store. I know it's a little much, but I think it's whimsical and fun pair! Don't apologize for taking risks, just put on a smile and go with it.
