I am finally flying back from sunny filled Florida this weekend after a lovely two week vacation…much needed after being long distance with my boo for months! We celebrated our anniversary, my birthday and Valentine’s Day at Disney, Universal + at the beach…what more can a gal ask for?! #ThisIsMyHappyPlace
I am already plotting my next trip + I for sure want to make it another sunny paradise…so I decided to round up my favorite essentials for a beach getaway. Whether it’s a weekend trip or longer vacay, these accessories + must-haves will get you through your sunny trip in style!
Here’s my favorites across the board:
I am LOVING this ‘Life’s a Beach‘ hat from The Mint Julep! It was the perfect way to protect my skin from too much sun exposure + it is honestly the cutest for flatlaying on the beach haha :p P.S. they have TONS of fun floppy hat options with different sayings!
Tory Burch has always been my go-to when it comes to sandals. They are great quality, comfy + I tend to opt for a metallic hue that matches with every look + accentuates your tan on the beach 😉
I have been loving these fun sunnies from Diff Eyewear! They always have great sales, even better styles + I don’t stress about them getting scratched or anything at the beach because they have an affordable price point (as opposed to RayBans :p).
SWIMWEAR + COVERUPS
I had no clue Vera Bradley had such great swimwear + coverups till recently + now I am officially in love. They have great prints, cuts + styles that are easy to wear + comfy too!
Happy Thursday Babes!I am off to LONDON + PARIS today! Unreal to think this is my first time to ever head outside the country + the first time I get to see Mike since he headed over to London for work 🙂 In my mind, London will be filled with the best outfit shoot locations, amazing culture + plenty of…you guessed it haha shopping (trust me Mike is super excited about that aspect of my visit jk haha :p #SorryNotSorry) The most exciting part of going on this trip is the fact that it is a brand new adventure outside of my comfort zone – even better, when I return from the UK I am also opening a new chapter with an exciting new role at an amazing company (stay tuned for deets :p *hint hint* it involves cute outfits, stellar photoshoots + kick ass influencers – yay!)
But back to my trip…I will be gone for two weeks + already have all of my outfit shoot locations picked out (be sure to follow me on Instagram to see my InstaStories along the way with my fav places to check out – @MissyOnMadison). From heading to Sketch for afternoon tea to getting photos at the adorable red phone booths, London is sure to be insta-worthy all the way!
In preparation for my trip, I partnered up with one of my favorite brands, Vera Bradley to head out of the country in style!
My little England keychain was actually a present from Kristi when she visited Harrods in London (you know that is my first stop hehe) ♥
From their adorable rolling luggage sets to their colorful passport covers, Vera Bradley has everything you need for a stylish trip ahead. I honestly can’t get enough of their travel essentials – they are bold and bright, making them easy to spot at baggage claim hehe AND they are super functional + are amazing quality (now that is what I call a Win/Win)!

Happy Wednesday Loves! Yes…it’s happening, I am wearing ‘White After Labor Day‘ #SorryNotSorry (btw that Demi Lovato song has been stuck in my head for the past few weeks haha anyone else with me?) Anyways…I typically wear white year round anyway so it doesn’t really phase me that we are now past Labor Day haha So to really show how I don’t care about going against fashion faux pas’s, I wore white from head to toe!
I can’t wait to bring this cozy sweater + jeans to London. With the cooler temps there these will make for the perfect strolling outfit. Crazy to think the day I shot these photos it was 100 degrees outside..Yup, 100 degrees! I was meltingaway in this outfit but hey that’s the life of a blogger and what my weekends consist of haha
Coco Cooper has jeans that hug your curves and really fit your shape. I LOVE these jeans!! They are made with 4 way stretch denim allowing them to move with your body all day no matter where you are off to! They even have a special sculpt and lift technology to give your booty that extra ‘oomph‘ you always wanted.
I always love wearing an all white outfit, so I paired this look with white pointed toe pumps! These are a must-have of mine for fall 🙂
Happy Monday ♥ Time for another busy week but I am actually excited about the weekend being over because it means we are that much closer to Thursday which is when my dad is flying out from NY to visit me! I am SO excited since this is going to be the first time he has seen me in LA since we road tripped here for my big move 2 years ago (it’s officially 2 years as of June 8th)! Crazy how time flies huh? Here’s to TWO years + many more successful years to come in LA LA Land! Anyways, my dad will finally see his little girl all grown up with her own place (and TWO walk in closets), settled in just fine. Maybe there will be a new ‘walk in’ closet for every year I am in LA…hopefully next year brings three haha I am sure I will accumulate plenty of more clothes + shoes by then :p
I spent the weekend trying to get my apartment in tip-top shape…I have never felt so domestic lol Between cleaning, laundry + cooking, I am officially ready to change my name to ‘Missy Stewart‘ haha move over Martha 😉
Besides hanging home I did a little shopping at one of my favorite stores to get the best ‘Looks For Less‘…Old Navy!
I am C O A C H E L L A bound! It’s almost here – festivalseason! That means it is time for some desert vibes + comfy outfits…like this one 😉 I got Coachella ready thanks to Boohoo and their Coachella gifting suite last week in LA – the perfect opportunity to snag those great boho pieces I will be wearing all weekend long like this denim boyfriend jacket! The best part? They had a customize denim bar so they created the LA skyline on the jacket for me, pretty cool right?
This print was actually spray printed on (fashion meets art…something I LOVE). The jacket itself is super comfy and is under $60 making it a must have for your wardrobe since it can be worn year round with jeans, skirts, dresses + beyond…can’t go wrong with some classic denim!
I layered it over a simple lace dress (the one I will be wearing for Day 1 of Coachella this weekend). I love lightweight, easy pieces that match with everything and are comfy as well. I am linking to a few of my favorite lace dress below (ideal for festival season).
White Mountain shoes has the best shoes for adventure filled weekends. Whether you are searching for flats, sandals, wedges or heels, White Mountain has stylish picks you will want that have the comfort and functionality you need!
