Honeymooning

Lindsey here. Sorry for radio silence on the blog. But we've had some exciting things going on! I got married and went away on a honeymoon, and Amanda is now a mommy to the adorable Mr. Teddy! Now that we are back to real life, we promise we'll get back into the swing of things. First up: HONEYMOONING

 We stayed at Sugar Beach, a Viceroy resort, and it was FABULOUS. If you are looking for a luxury spot in the Caribbean—this is it. The atmosphere is crazy beautiful. The resort is nestled between the 2 Piton volcanic mountains, with a perfect beach, huge pool, really impressive food, a Rainforest Spa, and unbeatable views. 

I had a bit of a struggle pairing down my packing in the beginning, but I ended up being very happy with my choices. So I wanted to share my thoughts about where I landed with you. And let us know, what are your vacation must haves?
Airport outfit - When you're getting up at 3am for a flight, comfort is huge. But we are not about showing up in your pjs. J.Crew shorts paired with a comfy LuLuLemon top make for the perfect traveling gear. I always bring a jacket for unexpected airplane temps and hats are hard to pack, so just wear it!

Vaca footware - Anyone else find it impossible to not overpack pack shoes? I stuck with 3 pairs of sandals (all comfortable for walking!), 1 wedge, 1 heel, and my sneakers. The perfect selection for the week.


The White T - I'm a huge proponent of a classic white T. It's comfy, always classic, and goes with anything. My favorite is this SkarGorn oversized T from Madewell. 




Silk Scarf - A must have for traveling. It was always warm in St. Lucia, but there was a bit of a breeze some evenings. A silk scarf is the perfect extra layer that can cover up that breeze and keep you looking tr├Ęs chic. I brought this Kate Spade "Love is in the Air" scarf out with my every night.

Cruising - I'm in love with statement shorts. Big patterns, neon colors, and bold textures—pair them with a simple T and you're good to go!


Resort Whites - Half of my honeymoon wardrobe was white. Nothing looks better than flowy white clothes on a fresh tan.

Lightweight Pants - I almost forgot to bring these since pants were the last thing on my mind while packing. But they ended up being perfect for the warm breezy nights AND they helped with the bugs. If I could find one complaint for this tropical island, it was the bugs. The mosquitos just loved me, so covering up my legs in the evening was sometimes quite necessary. 

Now, when can I go back??

Boston Baby Shower

Still on baby watch over here, which seems like a great time to share some photos from my adorable Boston baby shower! It was absolutely perfect in every way, down to the rogue orange M&M. This baby is one lucky little man.











Thank you my dear friends!

Oh Buoy Abodes - Nest

Amanda here - we are officially on baby watch! We'll be moving at the end of June, so decided to forego setting up the full nursery. However, gals gotta nest. I baby-fied our bedroom to prepare for our new roommate, expected to join us any day now!

Bachelorette

At the end of April, we got to surprise bride-to-be Lindsey with a bachelorette weekend away in Upstate New York, in the beautiful lake town of Skaneateles. We went on a wine tour on Seneca Lake, ate some delicious food, and visited some of our old stomping grounds at Syracuse University. Can't wait for the big day!

Want It Wednesday - Kate Spade Totes



In my quest for the perfect wedding shoes, I picked up 2 pairs at Kate Spade and debated over them for a few months. I've finally made a decision on which to keep but because I'm well over the 1 month return period, I'm now left with a sizable gift card to KS. How horrible right?? It's the perfect excuse to buy a fun bag, and I've got my eye on totes. Should I got for a post wedding tote? Or a fun summer tote? There's so many adorable options, I can't seem to choose. Wish I could take all of my top 5!! -Lindsey
