Blush

May 2, 2018

One of the best parts of the spring season are those first few warm days when the sun is shining, it's finally into the 70s and your skin is literally soaking up every last drop of 'summer is coming feelings'. Especially after a long winter here on the east coast, I am thrilled that we are now approaching some warm...and dare I even say hot days, in our near future.

In fact, as I am writing this I am looking outside at what is going to be an 80+ degree day. 

I am almost giddy.

Speaking of giddy, I was equally so when I was approached by Tobi to try some pieces from their Spring/Summer 2018 collection. As soon as I landed on their website I fell in love with the color palette and their styles - featuring the perfect blend of modern romantic with flowy maxi dresses, lace rompers and stunning statement tops with detailing for days.

I honestly had a hard time narrowing down my favorite pieces, but the very first was an easy one as it was love at first sight with this Off the Shoulder Dress in Rose

It fit pretty much all of my spring  dress style musts; loose yet flattering fit, statement element (in this case the layered off the shoulder ruffles) and a warm tone to compliment my still not quite bronzed enough skin.

It was a match made in heaven with my straw hat I snagged a few years back in Mexico and my first open toe shoe purchase of the season from Splendid (which you can also find here and here).

Speaking of which, can we talk about these shoes for a second?

I have become mildly obsessed with them and found that they go with just about everything in my closet, are comfortable and are a heel that I can actually walk in without getting stuck in every city grate or cobblestone nook & cranny. Best part? They are on sale for $55! They only have a few sizes left so you might want to hurry.

And while we are on the topic of details lets talk accessories.

To be completely honest, I don't buy a lot of accessories these days thanks to my monthly delivery programs, like Rocksbox, because I get new things delivered to my door each month and swap them out for new pieces every 2 weeks to 30 days. 

However, when I saw this clutch at Anthropologie the other day, when... for the record I was shopping for a gift for someone else, I had to have it.

Actually, now that I think about it, given the amount of adorable pieces Anthro has right now I am quite proud this was the only damage I did because I am also lusting for this and this.

Along with these earrings I found at Express.

(sorry husband...I promise shopping is over for the month)

"Can't stop won't stop" said winter to March.

Ha!

But really, that happened which is why you still see snow on the ground. 

That said, these chilly spring temperatures make for perfect weekend getaways filled with chunky knits and layers for daytime wanderings and cozy fireside evenings sipping champane. Which is exatlay what we enjoyed during our stay last week at the Camden Harbour Inn

Upon arrival we were immediately greeted by the hotel manager, as in he came outside to our car to meet us as we were stepping out, welcoming us and offering to assist with our bags. And if that's not 5 star service I don't know what is!

As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a roaring fireplace, soft music in the background and sweeping views of the water...and I was immediately relaxed (which is hard to do for me!)

Our room itself was equally as luxurious with a spacious floorplan, beautifully tiled and upgraded spa bathroom and private deck overlooking the water. Both the husband and I commented how we could easily move right in!

One of my favorite parts of the whole stay? Well...I should say two of my favorites because dinner that evening (although I wasn't able to snag any photos due to being too involved in the experience and company) was one of the most unreal dining adventures I have ever been on with course after course of creative and absolutely delicious courses.

But right after dinner, literally, breakfast the next day (which by the way is included in their rates) was also one for the books - complete with personalized menus, multiple delectable course and superb service. I could not have asked for more!
