How darling is this little mint skirt by Frill clothing? With the pleats and the loops of the bow, the top of it seems to almost have floral elements to it. The structure of the fabric is folded in an elegant and feminine way, similar to the petals of a flower. Every where I turned in Jamaica, I was ooh-ing and ahh-ing another gorgeous flower. Delicate and easy, they fluttered in the gentle breeze. Confident and unified, their shape withstood the same wind. I find the little things positively enrapturing, like many elements of nature as you may already know or if you're new around here and continue to follow along, will most surely come to know. So more than stop and smell the roses, I stopped and smelled them, ooh-ed and ahh-ed them, and of course, photographed them.

Something I love about visiting new places is discovering nature anew. Maybe down here in Jamaica, parrots are like squirrels, around every corner and not a big deal. But Patrick and I are like kids in a candy shop, just lovin it. We've seen parrots, peacocks and a lot of sea-life this trip. Two of my favorites are the starfish and zebra-fish. We have a snorkeling and sailing trip tomorrow and I've got my fingers crossed for coming across a dolphin or two. Patrick and I have always nerded out in the animal department. Planet Earth is like one of our all-time favorite movies. So you can imagine seeing all of these beauts in real life is like a non-stop highlight reel.

Hello from Jamaica! After 2 days of 80 degree weather, powder-soft sand on the toes and natural eye candy all around, yours truly is already feeling rejuvenated and inspired. Patrick and I are enjoying a lovely week so far and are looking forward to the rest of our trip. Considering taking one of these palm trees home with me. Oh and the ocean. That's cool right?

One of my favorite fall trends is monochromatic blush, especially with gold accents. I've styled blush and gold together with shimmering pants and sequins and lace and beading on Ruby Girl before. I think it has a whimsical feminine quality to it. This time, I went for a Parisian flair with the Bonjour shirt and circle skirt, and black accents. And the cool thing about this outfit as that most of it (sweater, skirt, & purse) cost under $100 together, thanks to a fun challenge from Kohl's. Who doesn't love a good bargain? Especially when you don't have to sacrifice style for it, which is totally the case with these unique Kohl's pieces.
