As I’ve grown older, I’ve found one the best ways to set yourself up for a great week is to give yourself the weekends off – meaning lots of rejuvenating and restoring! #HelloSunshine #HelloNetflix

One of the other ways I’m learning to set myself up for success (this year) is to say no.

Wishlist: Swimwear

This season, I’m skipping Fashion Week to explore the Bahamas and Merida, Mexico. It was a hard decision but ultimately, one that makes the most sense for The Style Bungalow! (Think: big fluffy coats vs. tropical goodness) I CAN’T WAIT!
