Life’s A Beach

Or so I’d like to think it is…:)

This day I wore a sweet little figure flattering seafoam suit by Tori Praver for Target! The collaboration came back out in the Spring and I am so happy I got to wear it before the Summer ends! I added fabulous statement earrings to complete the charming, but glamorous look!

I hear its beach weather again! Have a Happy Weekend!

Summer time means beach time! I love a classic black swimsuit. It keeps everything nice and tight. Don’t you think?

The March-ing Gram

Flashback Friday: Can’t forget my March instagram posts. It was cold, it was hot and it was cold again! There was lots of coffee, Spring flowers, selfies (of course) and some art this past month.  Follow me @budgetsai for more of all this and daily budgets!

Have a beautiful weekend! AccuWeather says plenty of sunshine in New York! Woohoo!

Until Next Time, Tulum

I finally got to wear my little white bikini I purchased from Gilt last year. I love their everyday noon sales from jeans and shoes, to swimwear and jewelry. There’s always great deals on many known names like Vix -a line I’d like to have more of in my swimsuit drawer this Summer. I can’t forget Victoria’s Secret Swim. They also have the sexiest, most unique pieces every year. This neon one-pierce came to me last year, but not soon enough. Summer goes by so fast! Where are you heat so I can live this life again? I’m ready! Are you?!

Tulum you were so good to us, I can’t wait until our next honeymoon. This was probably the best trip I’ve ever had with him (my photographer on this trip too :). Thank you and I love you.

Where shall we head to next? What swimsuits are you getting yourselves into this Summer?

Tulum: Day 2/Night 2

Day 2 in Tulum meant to start working on a tan in none other than a little black bikini. I added a fun statement necklace and lots of arm candy to brighten up my beach bum look!

For the night out I let my clutch do all the talking with its beautifully sewed in sequins and abstract print.

Happy Friday!

Tulum: Night 1/Day 1

I’ve always wanted to go to Tulum, Mexico and this year I finally did. The warm weather, the authentic Mexican food (no pre-made/store bought guacamole here), the ranchera music, and of course the unlimited tequila! Aye ya yae!

Below you’ll see my appreciation for the beautiful beaches. We stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Resort where they greeted us with margaritas and made us feel at home instantly. We reserved a table at Tequila restaurant inside the hotel to start off our Mexican adventure. A mariachi band played while we took pictures with sombreros! I wore a black jumpsuit with shiny gold accents for the first night in Tulum. To add a but of glamour, I brought along my sister’s vintage Chanel bag…tres chic!

Baywatch was my only inspiration for day one’s beach look: a high cut one-piece and tousled hair, a la Pamela Anderson.

What do you think of my all black looks? Any vintage lovers?

PS- I like to brighten my wardrobe towards the end of my trip to bring out my tan.

Body Like The Summer

I finally made it to Long Beach this past weekend to enjoy what was left of Summer. Hopefully soon I can go on vacation and make up for all those long lost Summer days!

Here I am in one of my many black one – piece swimsuits…

Did you all enjoy your Summer this year?
