Fashion Friday: Getting my Chic Beach On

Hey Finessees! The fam and I are headed to Bethany Beach in Rehobeth, DE. As a result I decided to do a MyFinessedLife beach edition.  Aside from snacks, the packed cooler of drinks, my iPad, chairs, blankets and umbrella, here are my beach essentials:

1) I bought this Mara Hoffman cover up for my recent holiday to Maui. So flipping cute and can easily be rocked with a white tank and skinny jeans on a cooler summer day. 2) Kate Spade Sun Hat.  My hair easily changes color in the sun.  I am not fond of the color (ashy brown that looks soooo dry). 3) Forever21 Tribal cut out one pice (Sold out but similar here).  Major score at $24! And the back of this suit is sooo damn sexy.  See my instagram for a pic. 4) Target.com Mossimo multicolored straw bag.  5) Tory Burch Flip Flops-  surprisingly comfortable since most trendy flips are not. 6) Sunscreen an absolute must 7&8) MAC 'Mineralize' Blush and Lip Gloss to enhance my beachy glow 9) I never leave home without Benefit's They're Real mascara.

When Fashion and Decor Collide : Color Blocking.

Hey Finessees!  Currently I am having a moment with all things color blocked! This trend has been so hot, it is popping off everywhere! There are so many ways you can rock a color-blocked look. Try it in small doses with purses or a top and skirt combo. But you can also dare to go bold with a head-to-toe color-blocked outfit.  Take a look at all the ways I found color blocking:

M's First Swim Lessons

Hey Finessees!  This summer my husband and I decided to enroll our three year old in preschool swim lessons at the YMCA.  Since it's her first experience in pool we enrolled her in a transition class.  Mom or dad gets in the water with their child.  The child learns to get comfortable in the water and getting their faces wet, how to blow bubbles, and the fundamentals of paddling and kicking.  The goal is to be able to have the child swim unassisted 5ft before moving to the next level.  Here is a pictorial of M's first lesson:

Turquoise Thursday

Hey Finessees!  After a long vacation and mini hiatus, I'M BACK!!!!!!  Here is another feature of the color that I am absolutely obsessed with turquoise.  It's a guest house that I found on House of Turquoise. The functionality and layout of it is on par. The house was designed by Tilman Long Interiors. Excuse me while I swoon.
