Sleek lines, tribal prints and punchy colors, RVCA’s first ever women’s swim line is the true beach-lover’s dream wardrobe. I could totally see myself wearing these on and off the beach, layering the tops under loose dresses and tanks.
RVCA’s women’s collections are for a girl that is slightly edgy, has just as many guy friends as girlfriends and is confident in her own skin. I love that their minimalistic silhouettes let a figure speak for itself. My favorite pieces above (especially that t-strap top) start at about $32 each which are quite affordable considering other surf lines. Since the whole collection goes together you could possibly wear every single piece with another piece in the collection! This a HUGE perk for indecisive and lazy-to-do-laundry chicks like myself. Check out the rest of the collection and the FRESH lookbook photos.

The whole time I was in Key West I was on the search for a new pair of shades. I ended up talking myself out of every pair of sunglasses I tried on. With Boston’s gray, gray, gray winters who needs sunglasses? Well luck would have it that this past week in New England the sun shined bright every. single. day. I am not complaining, trust me. But I need some sunglasses! Sun + snow= blinding light
PS. Yes, I have a pair of hot red Ray Bans but, you know, those clash with my olive green parka.
PPS. Which ones should I consider?
Although I had intended to do a complete two-week tech detox, yes that is an actual thing nowadays, I cheated and only used my phone which probably does just as much as my laptop. Anyway I did try to curb technology use and slow down my pace to the Keys. People walk slower, are hardly on time and if it doesn’t happen today, oh well. Coming from a northeast city it can be a bit of a culture shock.
By eliminating checking my cell phone every few minutes or being logged onto my laptop I was able to free up my mind, create some space for new ideas and absorb what was going on around me– beautiful sunsets, vibrant flowers and pesky animals (geckos, iguanas, roosters and cats, oh my!).
Christmas day at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park
Not sure what type of butterfly this is…any ideas?
First sunset on 2013 on a boat right off Key West, not a bad way to start the year!
For my ‘local’ expertise on Key West check out my post on must-go and see spots on the island.
2 weeks in sunshine and I’m back!
I was fortune to spend the holidays in Key West, Florida with my family. Key West loves any excuse for a party. The houses all over the island were decorated with lights, even bikes (a local’s main mode of transportation) were wrapped in lights and garland. On Christmas Eve my family walked around the island looking at all the houses. Lots of other people had the same idea and there was even a bike parade going down our street.
This little house looks magical with the lights. The photos below are of the second place winner of Key West Holiday Lights Contest. Who won first place?! I never found the house but I’m very curious. Just look at the 2nd place winner. Can you imagine what 1st place must look like?
My dad spotted this house on one of his walks. The creative decorator used Skol vodka bottles to adorn his bungalow with some holiday cheer. How many bottles do you think he used?

I hope everyone had wonderful holidays, got some time to rest and rejuvenate! I’ll try not to bombard you with too many Key West posts but I do have a lot of gorgeous photos from my trip. Happy Monday! (ugh)
