Travel Linkup Reminder

I'm just returning from my trip and will need some time to get settled back into "real life" but, in the meantime, I wanted to remind you about our Wanderlust Wednesday linkup tomorrow. Feel free to join Kate, Kerri and myself by sharing your favorite travel recaps or travel-related posts.

You can also check out my last Wanderlust Wednesday post recapping my trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for some ideas of what to talk about.

I can't wait to get back on schedule and reconnect with my lovely fellow bloggers!

Holiday Weekend


Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend! 

I spent 4th of July lounging by the pool with friends in Vegas although we managed to see no fireworks. Otherwise the trip has been action packed and a huge success. I'm still traveling today so will do a full recap when I return home. In the meantime, feel free to follow my travel adventures on instagram.

Summer Nighttime Wear

I'm on my way to Vegas this morning so I may not be very in tune with blogging for the next several days but I'm surely going to try to keep afloat. As many of you know, we've been planning this trip for our anniversary for the past several months. While I'm super excited to get away and have some fun with the hubs and some friends, I'm also very aware Vegas is 100+ degrees during the summer so I wanted to shop and pack accordingly for the trip. Light and airy outfits are a must to survive the heat so here's some cute ideas for summer nighttime wear.

And, of course, some cute accessories and quality cosmetics are a must to tie the outfit together....

Colorful Coverup


If you follow me on instagram (emilyalisonb), you might have seen my sneak peak post about dabbling in fashion blogging so today I'm bringing you my very first and not very established fashion post! I really don't consider myself a fashion blogger. In fact, I'm quite the opposite ~ I feel fairly awkward in front of the camera, I don't have a signature pose, and I tend to smirk instead of smile but I decided to suck it up and give it a serious try only because I want to showcase some beautiful and affordable summer clothing I recently purchased.

This chevron-print swimsuit coverup is one of my favorite coverups for summer days at the beach or pool. The semi-sheer material is light and airy and provides great coverage and I love the plunging neckline.
