Hi there! 

I can’t believe the beautiful warm weather in NY this weekend, we have been needing this sunshine. It brings me back to my Mexico resort vacation recently and this Nectar Clothing romper ensemble I put together that I can’t wait to re-wear this spring. I styled this fun boho bell sleeve romper with oldie but goodie Aldo gold sandals and my vintage 1920s gold clam shell purse. The starfish necklace and earrings are from JCrew accessories (unfortunately not a recent buy/collab but they do sea-themed jewelry often as does Lilly Pulitzer and more). The belt is 12th Tribe. 

Enjoy the Spring air and throw on a fun romper to celebrate! Prints are really in right now and I’m always drawn to a boho ensemble:)

Hi there! 

I’m missing my Mexico resort vacation and wanted to share my favorite brand of the moment: Spell Designs (Spell and the Gypsy) whom I’ve blogged about before but my recent Flamingo Blossom Bikini set were so much fun to wear with my Sayulita frill shorts and Sayulita top! All can be found on their site. I wore the top and shorts on Sayulita beach in Mexico as well which I thought was perfectly fitting!

Happy resort season and Easter babes!

Hi there! 

I just got back from a beautiful resort vacation and it’s now Spring (ignoring our current snowstorm situation haha). Naturally every Spring I look forward to Spring dresses and this Free People dress for Nordstrom is gorgeous and right on trend.  It’s also on sale since I got it!

I’m currently loving the feminine silhouette of an off the shoulder dress and bell sleeves and this dress combines both. With the rouched fabric at the waist and sleeves it also gives a beautiful silhouette in the waistline, coming out with a billowy skirt. I frolicked around in Mexico in it and can’t wait to wear it this Spring into Summer!

Beachy Boho Free People

Carolina Santos Read

Hi there! 

This is the last of my worn in Mexico while on Spring Break resort series, brought to you by this lovely Free People top, a new Poshmark score as well as the gold Jack Rogers wedges I styled it with. I also finished the look with an oldie but goodie pair of H&M lacy shorts. 

Billowy boho tops like these as well as metallics and lace are super on trend for Spring, but frankly will never go out of style either. I love how this look can also transition effortless from day into night and has a beachy effortless chic to it. 

Have you checked out PoshMark to either re-sell gently worn or new clothing and accessories or to buy? I absolutely love it! I recently attended the "PoshNation" fest in New York where I met the CEO and PR team who are lovely and fellow poshers. It's a great community and a lot of fun not to mention an easy way to resell and downsize you closet to make room for new fashion. Find me on there as "PoshLina7."

Hi there! 

I thought I would continue the resort trend since it's that time of year and as it heats up we inevitably start to imagine ourselves at the beach, right? Maybe it's just me? Hehe. 

This Lilly Pulitzer tunic is perfect for throwing over your bathing suit or wearing with white pants and sandals to go out on the town. The pattern and color are resort-chic and lightweight for a sunny day and to pack for travel. I styled mine with Havaianas flip flops and a Vera Bradley madras beach tote as well as my Ray Ban sunglasses. 

Enjoy fun in the sun or plan for your next trip with a beautiful versatile tunic! Just don't forget your sunscreen:)

Hi there! 

If you follow my blog IG @carolinasantosread you might remember one of my Spring/Summer NYFW inspirations from the Altuzarra (and others) runway involved the citrus fruit trend for Spring 2017. There's something very Italian about this trend and I wanted to feature it in a resort segment.

The look above is from DressLilly.com and is a complete steal under 20 bucks! Definitely the look for less. I love a two piece like this that can be worn separately or together, but there are so many other ways to wear this trend such as on a top, dress, or just the accessories like a lemon earring with a red dress. It makes me want to cruise up the Amalfi coast in Italy. It's fun, flirty, and fresh instead of just bright colors and florals for Spring. I accessorized it with Jack Rogers sandals and Celine bag. 

I'm currently in Austin, TX on a girls trip and will be blogging some more resortwear next, but of a more Western variety. Stay tuned!

White & a Tan is Always in Style

Hi there! 

Coming out of resort wear season and right into end of Spring / early Summer means sporting a cute sun dress. My favorite wardrobe staple sun dress is a white lacy number that you can accessorize with.  

In this look (my dress is Express so it was a steal) I pair my white lacy halter dress with my Mexico tan, a great nude wedge (I went with my Arezzo ones from Brazil recently)  with nude handmade clutch and a gold shell earring (both from a boutique in Brazil). I also paired a boho colorful robe (also a steal from Forever21!!) over the dress to add color and texture and a tropical vibe since I was vacationing at a resort in a Puerto Vallarta, and at night on the marina there can be a little breeze.

A close-up of the texture and color of the boho robe and my shell earrings paired with the halter dress.

A white dress for summer can transition from the beach to going out at night, and you can't go wrong with a neutral palette, it matches absolutely everything. Add on your accessories to style it your way and have a little more fun with it. The best part about a tan is you need little to no makeup because to me natural beauty is so much more beautiful than an overly done-up face. I do love to play with makeup, but a beachy look is effortlessly beautiful and it requires less maintenance. For example my new lip obsession is the Burts Bees tinted lipstick line. It moisturizes with just a hint of color and leaves your lips soft. That and a pair of sunnies (with plenty of sunscreen) is all you need on your face at the beach!

Happy Spring:)
