I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces from my Stella & Dot trunk show, which ends this Sunday (3/31), so if you’ve been eyeing anything, now is the time!!
First, I’ve already posted about this, but I’m obsessed with this poncho! Love the fact that you can wear it both ways and the pretty blush color is so sweet. I’ve also heard they are retiring this color and the charcoal gray (which was the other one I wanted) soon.
These layered necklaces are also fabulous! I’m all about anything that has versatile ways to wear it. I love that you can take these apart and wear them separately or together. There’s this chain that basically links them together, which I think would be cute to add even additional layers to.
How cute are these sunglasses?? I love the pink mirror frames – so adorable. Plus, they’re also on sale, which is great!
I’m about to buy this bag too and I can’t decide if I want the black or this camo – love the shade of camo. Also the fact that it’s wipeable, has a compartment for shoes on the bottom , AND it has straps to connect your yoga mat at the bottom – love this! I sometimes hike up Mount Beacon and do yoga at the top, so this would be perfect for that. Comment below if you have a favorite!!
Love this edgy bracelet – would love to stack this one with others – so cute for a date night or night out with the girls.
How sweet is this “mama” necklace – such a perfect piece for layering, or just a delicate necklace for a t-shirt and jeans.
So, those are some of my favorites….what are yours??

Love Target! I stopped in yesterday and they had so many cute new items! Loving all the new Spring stuff and they also had some adorable Easter decorations, which I couldn't resist. Here are some outfits from my try-on sesh!
Pretty floral dress
Love this adorable feminine dress! Can't wait to wear this in the summer with some cute nude sandals, but it looks super cute paired with a moto jacket. It would also look great for work with a navy blazer. The blue color is so great too - realyl love this one!
Great go to blazer
Stripes for days
Perfect Spring sweater with some "flare"
Love me some leopard
Pop of red floral
Hat & cardi
Just back from Costa Rica and it was AMAZING. It was my first time to the country and it was beautiful. I got to attend a yoga retreat led by nOMad, which was great, b/c everything was planned out. Here are some of the highlights from the trip:
Welcome to the Jungle!
The Osa Peninsula is a remote part of Costa Rica – right in the middle of the jungle – complete with monkeys, all types of birds, pumas and even jaguars! To get there, I took a tiny 10 seater plane from San Jose to Puerto Jimenez (on Sansa Air).
I took a taxi 30 minutes from the "airport" on a VERY bumpy road to Osa Clandestina – what a beautiful spot!! My room literally felt like I was staying in a tree house.
All of our meals were prepared for us, by such a wonderful staff. The food was SO good – simple and local. The fresh fruit in the morning (pineapple, mangoes and papayas), was some of the best I’ve ever had. Plus the Costa Rican coffee - yum!!
Our host, Michael, took very good care of us the entire trip! There were smaller “casitas” on the property where some of the other guest stayed. The property also has the most beautiful pool right in the middle of the jungle. All of our yoga classes were on a platform overlooking the trees (and butterflies, monkeys and a baby hawk that practiced with us daily ? ).
Yoga and Movement
We had daily yoga practice every morning and experienced a movement class in the evenings, which was a beautiful way to move our bodies and find a connection between movement and stillness. Both were such a great way to clear my mind and stay present to really fully enjoy the entire experience.
Costa Rica is one of the best places in the world for surfing. Unfortunately, the day we were there, it was super flat! Not many “olas” (waves) at the Playa Pan Dulce, but we still had a fun time enjoying the warm water and paddling around in the water. It was just beautiful to be in the water and enjoy the scenery and sounds of the Osa Peninsula. I was able to catch a few small waves, which made me happy!
Waterfalls – “Only Opportunity”
We took a couple of hikes to two different waterfalls. So beautiful and the best experience to swim in a waterfall. As our guide, Julio, said “This is your only opportunity!” Such a great motto and one I want to take on whenever I travel from now on!
We also went horseback riding through the jungle. We saw the most gorgeous views of the coast from high up. Such beautiful scenery and interesting flowers and plants we encountered along the way. A wonderful experience to connect with nature.
Meeting new friends
Part of having a “zest for life” is meeting new people and learning about their experiences. It was so great to meet some wonderful women on this trip. We really connected and had such a fun time together – which included a dance party and a dip in the pool (with or without bathing suits ? ) on the last night. I love meeting and connecting with new people and these ladies were just the best!
I absolutely loved my time in the Osa Peninsula and am looking forward to my next trip back! As they say in Costa Rica, Pura Vida!!
