Winter Holiday

Nope, I'm not talking about Valentine's or President's Day, or even the holy grail of February holidays, Super Bowl Sunday... I mean "holiday" in the best, old-fashioned sense of the word, as in, "Roman Holiday," the sweet classic starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck!

This time of year the Resort collections pop up everywhere, making me pine for a vacation someplace warm and sunny... my inspiration for today's post comes from this adorable little swimsuit from J. Crew:

Tres chic, no? It's called the Biarritz-Stripe swimsuit, and boy does it have me dreaming of a little jaunt to the South of France!! :) Of course, you must have the perfect beach bag to tote along to the shore or for impromptu shopping...

I bought one of these beauties in Positano a couple of years ago, and you might recognize it as the shopping bag from Anthropologie - that is not for sale! I have a secret, though: You don't have to go to Italy to get your hands on the perfect straw bag of your own - they sell it on Amazon!! :) I've used mine as a beach bag, at the farmer's market, and best of all - as a diaper bag for all of my little one's necessities!

Until tomorrow...



  1. That bathing suit also reminds me that I need to get back to the gym on a more regular basis. :) Love your blog, Sally!

  2. Me, too - and that I need to invest in a good bronzer!! ;) Thanks for reading! xo

  3. you just inspired me for more shopping for my holiday in the carib. I'm so not done. thanks for sharing!

  4. Such a cute suit... although I think the girls need to be pretty perky to look good in it, sad for me ;-)

  5. @Girl in Green - Glad I could help!! ;) @Steff - I know exactly what you mean, and the good news is: it comes with a detachable halter strap!! Just what we need to support the girls, haha! :)


Thanks for your thoughts!! xo, Sally
