If you guys follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (mnmurphy1223) then you know that I just arrived in St. John, USVI this morning! We had a midnight flight last night from Boston and after a couple planes, a cab, and a ferry ride, we got here this morning around 8am. Exhausted is an understatement, but we took some time today to make homemade breakfast, explored our villa and its breathtaking views, and ventured into town to Cruz Bay for lunch and drinks at Beach Bar. Our villa this year is incredible and even has its own private beach complete with a hammock. There are sea urchins everywhere and I even saw an eel this morning (eeeeeek!!!!!). There are also iguanas literally everywhere around the perimeter of the villa and my mom even sent me a couple videos of them taking a dip in our pool before I arrived. I just love vacations where you are immersed in the nature around you and it doesn’t feel like the entire area was cleared of all nature and wildlife when it was built! Since I’m still struggling with not really sleeping last night, I wanted to keep my outfit casual and comfortable for my first day of vacation.
I recently discovered the online boutique, PB&J Shop which is a wonderful online shop that focuses on vintage inspired clothing. I’ve mentioned before in a post that I really try to incorporate unique pieces into my wardrobe whenever possible, because I hate going somewhere and wearing the exact same thing as every single other girl in the room! Style is something so personal and unique to every girl. While I definitely do get style and outfit inspiration from seeing girls on the street, Instagram, reading other blogs, and magazines/online, I do think it’s so important to put your own spin on things whenever possible.
I think every single girl has been obsessing over off the shoulder shirts that are on trend right now, but if you have yet to purchase one, you need to! I love off the shoulder (sometimes called cold shoulder) tops because it’s a cute way to show a bit of skin while doing so tastefully. This rose colored off the shoulder top is perfect for spring and I love the tie detailing on the sleeves. I decided to keep it casual and paired it with jean shorts.
I also love this, this, this dress, this dress, and this dress. Also, if you’re in need of cute notepads or desk accessories I’m obsessed with this notepad and this one.
