Vacation Days

These past few days have been spent exploring various cities across the Mediterranean coast and taking on a brand new adventure each day. Here are some photos...
The beautiful beach in Monaco where we spent hours at a local restaurant and enjoyed the most mouthwatering oysters and shrimp!
Wearing vintage 50s skirt, Top Secret bandeau, Karla Deras for Roman Luxe triangle earrings and pinky ring, Givenchy chain bracelet, and Super sunglasses.
Pistachio, strawberry, and rum raisin gelato from Florence. 
Slipped into a crochet dress sent to me by Emma for an early dinner on the ship...
The dresses are handmade in South Africa and each sale helps families in both Zimbabwe and South Africa! Worn with vintage sterling silver jewelry, Isabel Marant sandals, and American Apparel swimsuit

One word, WOW! First of all, I am sooooooo jealous. I've alway wanted to go to Italy. Secondly, how is it that you always look so glam? You have this gorgeous old movie star look about you, especially with the hair. I could see you next to Marilyn Monroe. The lace dress is obviously a bit see through, but perfect for being on a boat. Also, those are some great photos, if it is you who took them, hats off to you because I am no good at taking photos.

For some reason when I first saw the dress I thought it was a jumpsuit, I think because the white blends into the water behind you, and I thought wow a crochet jumpsuit that is amazing! I was sort of disappointed when I realised it was a dress, but I still think it looks incredible.

Many of us are aware that kids increase from their garments swiftly and all we want is Chinese style clothing a thing that is certainly likely to past no less than right until they increase out of them. Many of us want our youngsters to get the cutest young ones in class and infant vogue apparel will be the method to go.
