Happy Fri-YAY! Today I’m headed to Palm Springs for the weekend to celebrate one of my dear college roomies/besties Bachelorettes!
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be in warm weather, margarita in hand, while poolside with some of my favorite gals! I’ll recap the trip here more next week but today I wanted to show y’all a few of the items I’m excited to be packing for my girls weekend away!
ALL of the blue & white stripe tops!
Blue and white is welcome in nearly any form in my wardrobe. Shocking, I’m sure. But I absolutely love pairing the look with a bright pop of color in my accessories! This makes packing a breeze because there are so many combinations that can be done with just a few pieces! This has always been a staple in my warm weather wardrobe, but I’m especially excited that blue and white tops seem to really be ‘the thing’ right now! I ain’t complaining!
All of the bright accessories, please!
Here they are! This girl loves her bright and bold jewels, clutches, and more. I can never have/pack enough! I especially love the pink drop earrings because they’re surprisingly extremely lightweight! Perfect for when you’re having a dance party with your girls! 😉
Prepped and Ready for that SUN!
I self tanned like WOAH before this trip because let me tell ya… I don’t think Palm Springs would have been ready for Casper to show up for the weekend. But don’t worry, I’m not forgetting how ghostly pale I am underneath the faux glow! I made sure to pack my favorite sunscreen for body and face! If y’all are in need of a great facial sunscreen that is so lightweight you can barely feel it, tinted for a little extra ‘something’ (and won’t give you a white face), and is so gentle it will never make you break out…. then you need the Elta MD sunscreen. I bought it end of last summer and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to use another face sunscreen again! Yes, it’s that good.
I always love to pack an extra sunless tanning towelette to ‘touch up’ if needed. I don’t use towelettes for my main self tanning routine, but they’re perfect for when you need a little bit of glow on the go! Between the chlorine and sunscreen, sunless tanner has a hard time keeping its A-game (doesn’t matter what kind you use), so I’ve found that packing a little towelette is a great option to make sure I stay looking like a bronzed beauty!
Keeping up with the bronzing game, I’ve recently been obsessed with this powder bronzer! It’s an amazing drugstore find! It’s not sparkly, not gold or orange-y, and also not too dark which works so well with my fair skin! It also magically smells like a piña colada. That may seem weird, especially when applying it on your face… but also kinda perfect for when you’re in warm weather on vacation, right?! I love it and I think you will, too!
And to keep the hair matching my tanned beauty vibes, I definitely wanted to rock beach waves this weekend! I just recently picked up this product from the new line from Lauren Conrad’s hairdresser, Kristin Ess, at Target. I’ve followed her rise to fame in the beauty world ever since The MTV show ‘The Hills’ so I obviously needed to support her when she launched this new haircare line. Let’s just say if this beach waves spray makes me look anywhere close to likes of LC, I’ll be a happy customer. Keep ya posted. #fingerscrossed
Pom Poms & Frayed Hems
The second I saw these sandals, I knew they had to be in my life. But I also wasn’t sure if there were really a need… in January when I saw them. So, I resisted. A week later, I went back to buy them. I mean, at least I tried?! Who are we kidding… they’re too cute to pass up!
I also scored a pair of frayed denim at T.J. Maxx last week and I can’t wait to rock them! I love this trend for spring and summer – so relaxed and laid back but can be dressed up! I don’t like jeans with too many holes in them (one is my max!) so this trend works well for me as it’s a little rocker-chic without really being rocker-chic at all. #whoamikidding
AND FINALLY, I’m packing bringing along my new Lily Pulitzer + Swell + Starbucks bottle! But here’s the fun catch… I want YOU to have one, too!
Remember the fun story of the Lilly bottles and my friend Amber from this post?! Well y’all…the journey continues. We’ve found 2 more bottles! And we want to give ONE to a lucky reader whom we love so much! Official details for the giveaway can be found on my Instagram, but there’s a way you can give yourself one entry by just hanging out with me here on this blog post today!
Simply comment which bottle YOU would LOVE to win (either the palm leaves on the left or the peachy print on the right) below! And if you’d like to introduce yourself while doing so, I’d love that too! Essentially, this little giveaway is a fun opportunity for us gals to get to know our readers a little bit better and gives us the opportunity to (in a way) say ‘Hi!’ and ‘You’re the BEST for following along! Let me get you a little something to show my appreciation!’
I hope y’all have a fabulous weekend ahead! Feel free to follow along for real-time adventures of the Bachelorette on Insagram Stories and Snapchat (amybethcampbell)! And don’t forget to check Insta later today for details for the GIVEAWAY! And of course, comment below! Got all that?! 😉
