Vacation Forever + A Giveaway {Closed}

My vacation last week was fantastic. It was so relaxing. I think I only got fully dressed 2 days out of the week... the other days I just wore a bathing suit or pjs. Ahh, vacation life. I admit, it has taken me awhile to get back into the swing of things since I got back. I totally need a vacation to recover from my vacation.

{Tee: H&M (old), Skirt: J.Crew Factory (old), Shoes: Nine West (old), Necklace: c/o Cbiji Collection, Bracelet: David Yurman, Watch: Marc Jacobs}

I got this super cute and colorful necklace from Christine, blogger at Cbiji Collection and owner of an online jewelry shop.  I love how it has 3 different colors on it, which made it perfect for one of my favorite striped skirts. Today Christine is giving away another one of her gorgeous necklaces to a lucky Always Maylee reader!

Good luck everyone and have a great weekend! We are having our annual cookout at our house with all of our friends on Saturday, so I'm pretty excited to get this weekend started!

I always feel like I need a vacation after my vacations! It definitely takes at least a day to get back into the swing of things! I am in love with your outfit! The tee is so cute, and I love all the colors going on in your skirt and that pretty necklace!

Glad to hear you had such a wonderful vacation! I agree though, I always need several days to transition back to into "real life."

Ricademus said...

That's a well-coordinated outfit. Since I have no talent for matching things, most days I wear white shirts to work. They match everything.

One of my daughter's school friends had a cat named "little whitey" (your shirt reminded me of that).

Vacation time is wonderful! If I won a huge lottery, I think I would spend 3 months in pjs, then start looking to do good with the money (after resting up). But the 3 months would come after I spent six months or so continuing to work--and being annoying to a few people there. :)

Nathyness said...

Love that white tee! And I completed every entry. Hope I get this one!
