W.U.W.: 1 Year Anniversary Getaway

StyleLust Pages: What's Up Wednesday - 1 Year Anniversary Getaway

This past weekend the mister and I drove up to Tampa. Yup, road triiiip!! He had the idea to celebrate our first anniversary on a mini get away, plus we were way overdo for one of these. We didn’t get there until Friday evening, but I loved the hotel as soon as we walked in. Hyatt Place was so chic and cute. 24 hour service and the kitchen stayed open 24/7, as well. Burger at 2am, anyone? Our room was like a mini suite. Loved it. And all of the natural light that poured into the room every morning had me jealous. I don’t even get this type of light in my own apartment!

On Saturday we woke up and went down for our complimentary breakfast. French toast, waffles, eggs, fresh fruit, cereal, bagels, muffins, donuts, oatmeal with all of the trimmings and more. More than enough to get your day started. And they serve Starbuck’s coffee for all of my Starbuck’s lovers! Of course, while we’re eating it starts pouring. Awesome. I was concerned for our day at Busch Gardens.

But basically we’re like “YOLO!” and walk out into the rain to the car and head over to the amusement park. Luckily for us, by the time we park the rain had stopped. YES! Rain-free for the rest of the day. I insisted that we get ponchos in case it rained again, but they weren’t needed. We even managed to ride one coaster. I say one coaster because it was all I could handle. I know…sad, right? I used to looove roller coasters. It has been years since I’ve been on one and it just made me feel sick. I was there for the food though! Turkey legs, funnel cakes and fresh lemonade (mixed with tea). I enjoyed all of it.

Big thank you to Hyatt Place for our stay and Busch Gardens for our complimentary tickets! We had a blast!

P.S. So does this mean we’re not newlyweds anymore? (lol)

Snapped these shots while in Tampa for a weekend getaway this weekend. Stay tuned for a post on that later. We found this empty parking garage that was perfectly lit by the setting sun before heading to dinner for sushi. The last time I wore this dress was back in March (HERE). The perfect amount of sexy and great with either heels or flats. In this case, with flats even though they were also nude lace-ups.

By the way, I don’t remember where I first saw these lace-up sandals but I stalked them until they went on sale. But they didn’t just go on sale, they went on sale with an additional 40% off! They also come in black…and you’re welcome.

What I Wore: The Line By K dress, Love,Cortnie ‘Pink Milkshake’ Mini Bucket Bag (HERE), Club Monaco sandals (on sale HERE)

Double The Denim

StyleLust Pages: Double The Denim

Lately I’ve noticed that I’ve been stocking up on basics. Unintentionally of course, but they’re really what I wear the most of. Plus they can be worn over and over and over…and over again and in a variety of ways. Like this bodysuit, for example. It would look so nice with a maxi skirt or wide leg pants. Or maybe even some skinny jeans with a leather jacket layered over it when it the temps start to drop.

But since it’s been around 100 degrees, pairing it with denim on denim works just fine too.

What I Wore: Boohoo bodysuit (HERE), Free People shorts (old, alternate HERE), J.Crew flannel (old, similar HERE), Love,Cortnie ‘Denim Roll Down’ Clutch (HERE), Charles Jourdan heels (old)

Belted Midi

Can I just start by saying that I love everything about this look. Well, other than the shoes (I need the Stuart Weitzman’s in black bad!). But this top and skirt are everything. This top in particular will go so well with anything highwaisted. I was right to get it in 2 colors, but quickly realized how wrong I was for not getting it in the third after actually wearing it. I came home yesterday and made sure to do so. Love, love, love.

Oh…sidenote: There were dozens of wasps flying around the staircases behind me. There were a few times that I had to either run or attempt to swat them away with my bag. Not cool.

What I Wore: Boohoo top (HERE) & skirt (HERE, alternate HERE), Love,Cortnie Dalmatian Mini Bucket Bag (only 1 HERE), Zara heels (old), Kat Von D lipstick in Slayer (HERE)

Have you ever stepped out and realized that you forgot your sunnies? Yup, that was me. It was so bright out and I was trying so hard not to squint and/or look angry. It was tough! Plus I kept laughing at myself because I know I looked crazy. The things we do…

What I Wore: BCBG Max Azria tank (old), Boohoo skirt (HERE), Love,Cortnie ‘Mongo’ Mongolian Fur & Leather Clutch (HERE), Steve Madden heels (old)
