 I have to confess, I was never the little girl who dreamed about being Ariel from The Little Mermaid. I was more of a Belle girl myself. A huge castle, a yellow dress and a singing wardrobe? No competition, there! But over the past few years, I’ve loved watching the emergence of mermaid obsession. From gorgeous beach-wave locks to shimmering makeup pallets, it seems like everywhere you turn there’s a bit of mystical under water inspiration.

It didn’t surprise me at all, therefore, when “mermaid” was the first word to pop into my head when I came across this shirt. The graceful halter neckline, gorgeous embroidered detailing and oversized scalloped edging seem like they came straight out of Ariel’s shopping cart, so, fittingly it was the first item I put in my suitcase for last week’s cruise! Everything about it is unique in the sweetest way. I wish I had a picture of the back, as it’s darling and fresh as well. To top it off, turquoise accessories (like these new bracelets I haven’t taken off in a week) seemed like a fitting nod to the sea. The only thing that it still needs is a mermaid tail… any leads? :)

Wishing everyone a glorious Monday! After an incredible week at sea with Royal Caribbean (stay tuned for a full recap!) I couldn’t be more excited to get back into a productive routine. Don’t you love when inspiration to buckle down and get things done finally strikes? Let’s do this!

  7. I absolutely love this outfit! The tassel earrings are gorgeous & I actually have the scalloped version of this clutch, it’s so handy-I would’ve never thought about turning it around for pictures, but it definitely gives it another look :)

    I have a top very similar to this & have been searching high & low on how to style it without looking hoochie! Long time reader of your blog & a student right up the road of your Alma Mater at Texas State. Love seeing you become so successful, congrats on graduating!
