I'm loving this bronze tan I'm maintaining throughout the summer. And what better way to highlight it than by wearing earth tone colors.

Marilyn Monroe and her famous dress blew up into the Windy City recently and is leaving quite a 26ft tall impression on the locals and tourists. The opinions about it are endless, with some saying it's useless, tasteless and others thinking it's just downright cool.
This is her famous scene from the movie The Seven Year Itch and like it or not, this statue will be in Chicago for at least a year.

As previously mentioned here and here, I attended a Vintage Bazaar back in May and purchased three pieces. This yellow shirt dress was the last find, and boy what a find!
By the time I found this vendor selling this dress I was all out of cash and to my horror she didn't have a credit card machine. Knowing just how much I wanted the dress, the vendor asked me how much money I had. I replied, "You don't want to know," because I didn't want to insult her. She said, "try me." I looked in my wallet and counted the coins I had and told her I had eighty cents. To my delight and surprise, she sold it to me because the dress had been in their shop for so long and she just wanted to get rid of it. EIGHTY CENTS folks, eighty cents! I can't believe that it hadn't sold. Well I had a vision for this lovely, especially since I have a pink one just like it. This style of dress is just my type.

Traveling is something that is a huge part of my life. On my vacations I seek out new experiences, shopping deals, good food, adventure, and lots of culture. Today I thought I'd take a look back and show you just some of the places I've been to.
Riding a horse in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in 2008
In Japan 2009
In the car in LA 2004
Recently in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in Spring 2011
Me and my toes at Nikki Beach in Miami 2004
In the New York subway in 2006
Going to see a Broadway play in New York in 2010
(If you look closely you'll see who was in it)
Walking in Old San Juan in Puerto Rico in 2007
In Toronto, Canada in 2009
Ready to ski in Wisconsin in 2008
I still have so many more places I want to visit, topping my list are: Rome, Tuscany, Paris, Ireland, and the Northern California Coast.
I'm one of those tourist that enjoys an interactive trip more as opposed to just perusing museums, art and artifacts.
What destinations have you always wanted to visit and what kind of tourist are you?

How do you take a basic tee to the next level? Why you add a statement necklace of course. I really wish I would have purchased this necklace in other colors, it's so fun and easy to throw on with something casual.
