Today is a really good day to Thank God It’s Friday (TGIF)! It’s Good Friday for the Christian calendar, so Happy Good Friday to everyone celebrating!
How amazing was the weather in NYC yesterday?! A balmy 62 degrees and finally feeling somewhat like New York City at springtime. It got me in the mood to share some more looks from St. Bart’s with you! This one in particular is my absolute fave because it just screamed RESORT STYLE!When I packed for vacation to St. Bart’s, this outfit really stood out, and the entire time I had this “I can’t wait to wear this!” feeling. I bought it from H&M two days before leaving—it’s from their Spring 2015 Studio Collection and it was love at first sight. I literally got up and waited outside H&M on 86th street at 9:00am to guarantee that I would be one of the first people in the stores and also get my size. It was well worth it, because at my location there was only one size 4 set. Once I got my little Sherece paws on it, I heard the angels sing and the lights shine down on the iridescent pink sheer fabric. YES, LORD! A SISTAH LIVES! St. Bart’s was really calling my name. Clear skies, here I come!

I’ve never actually worn a kaftan, primarily because I’m just not really a cover-up girl on vacation. New York weather forces me to keep my body hidden under several layers most of the year, so when I’m on vacation, the Jamaican lady comes out, embracing all things tiny, “suck-on,” and see-through!
This kaftan had a personality of its own.
This kaftan had a personality of its own. The palm leaves and gold cactus print on the pink silk background was vacation perfection! The outfit was flowy and beautiful, which provided an extremely delicate and sexy look. I felt like I was wearing nothing but my bikini and high heels.
I loved the burgundy detail on the pants. It broke up the busyness of the print when worn together with the kaftan, yet it could still hold its own with a white tank top or shirt.
Some of you may be wondering, “What’s the deal with gold python heels on vacation?”
These pants had shiny gold cactus printed all over—that plus my new gold-rimmed Chloe sunnies was just screaming seventies. I went full on James Bond Girl at a resort in St. Bart’s.
I could not tame the glam factor with flat sandals. These Giuseppes took the outfit to another level in my eyes. Remember, the key accessory for each look you create must be confidence. If you love it, own it!
A great way to update your woven bag is to tie a scarf on the handles. Choose a print that you love and watch it give all your vacation looks that resort flare they need. I’ve had this Michael Kors basket and the scarf for over 6 years. I buy scarves from all over from time to time. Each time I change them, I feel like it’s a whole new bag with a whole new look.
Everyone on the island was in LOVE with my look, from Point Milou to Gustavia. I was like the 007 girl on Mission #SLAY!
At the end of it all, who really cares about people liking what you wear? YOU’RE ON VACATION! Relax, enjoy, dress up, and create unforgettable memories!
Have an amazingly Happy Easter, my lovies! xoxoSB

i saw this piece in h&m when in DC and comtemplated getting it but then change my mind as i was gonna wear it as a cover up but with this weather I thought ill wait
It’s definitely perfect over a bikini. You can ditch the pants, keep the straw hat and handbag and add gold thong sandals. I would undo 2 or more buttons on the kaftan to reveal my bikini top and you are BEACH READY! Buy it if you still can because it is a bargain for the colors and quality, plus you will love it for a lifetime after one wear, trust me. Everyone will love it on you. xoxo!
It’s a beautiful outfit on a gourgeus woman
Thank you so much Lia! Glad that you like it!
I love the outfit…stylish, classy, and looks like can be worn comfortable looking! If only everything was like that 😀 I also like how you accessorized, that is always the hardest part for me.
Darling you could make a paper sack look edgy. Thank you for highlighting a piece that would not have caught my eye previously.
Anyone can throw on some expensive pieces and say it is fashion. You however can turn the simple affordable items into runway works of art.
Great look! I love your blog by the way.
This look was really put together.
Thank you so much hun! So happy when people can relate to my sense of style. xoxo!
