Things I've learned about timeshares

This is totally not a fashion blogger topic, but I wanted to write about this because I knew nothing about this topic before and now that I've started to learn more, I wanted to document it, both for myself and for any readers out there who have questions. I mentioned in yesterday's post that the term "timeshare" used to be really scary to me. I always pictured it as a way to scheme people out of money. While I can't say there aren't places that don't exist like that, I'm comfortable with the decision the husband and I have made to purchase our own. Before I go any further I should say that this is in no way a sponsored post, just my real life thoughts and experiences.

Orange Lake Resort - Orlando, FL

Orange Lake Resort Orlando
Hat: STL Cardinals store (option) | Sunnies: TOMS (option) | Chambray: ExpressSwimsuit: Target (top options here and here with matching bottoms here and here, striped one-piece option here)

We spent 6 nights and 7 days at the Orange Lake Resort in Orlando last week. It was perfect. We take plenty of long weekend trips here and there, but it's been a couple of years since we've actually unplugged for a whole week and enjoyed a legit vacation. We really had nothing planned other than laying around the pool. Throw in a day at a theme park and a couple of nice dinners, and we were set. We are super low maintenance when it comes to vacations. Our first priority is to relax.

Hello Monday: Neon romper + giveaway

Express neon coral surplice romper
Earrings: Kendra ScottNecklace: CS Gems (c/o) (option here) | Bag: Express (current option here) | Romper: Express | Bracelet: Kendra ScottSandals: bp

Well, vacation is over and I'm back to the real world! I will be recapping every last detail of my trip throughout the week, so at least I have the memories to hold on to for the time being to help ease back into real life! The short story is that it was a blast. We are known for doing our weeklong vacations somewhere international, usually Mexico, but I have to admit, it was nice to eat American food, not worry about accidentally drinking the water, and being able to make a Target run when we realized we needed something. I felt silly telling people we were going to Orlando - it seems like a random destination for a couple without kids, but we really went for the resort first and foremost not really thinking about the theme parks.

Random roundup: Carly edition

I hope you have been enjoying my guest posts this week! I really tried to select bloggers that inspire me! Carly is no exception! I originally "met" her through a Facebook group of mutual blogger friends, and I quickly became obsessed with her style (and shoe collection!) I definitely see similarities in our styles - she's sassy and playful and accessorizes effortlessly. I could 100% wear every outfit she rounded up for you in this post! See for yourself!

Dashing Darlin'

AngelleDashing Darlin' | Blog | Instagram

Happy Friday eve! What do I know though? It's basically been Saturday all week for me! If you've missed the guest posts this week while I've been gone, I hope you'll page back and see which other beauties have subbed for me in my absence! Today, I bring you Angelle. I thought she would be fun to have, especially since her style is always playful and feminine! She is a momma of four, and let me tell you - I don't know where she gets her energy from! I enjoy watching her kid adventures on Snapchat. I think she has some future performers on her hands!  She still somehow has time to blog, plus she is a habitual commenter on Instagram and is very supportive! Hope you enjoy her look and her message!

I am SO excited to bring Emily to you today!!! I want to be her when I grow up. She is equal parts edgy and sexy. I love how she makes boyfriend inspired pieces look tough but feminine. And she always has so much eye candy to look at in her outfits. Every last detail seems so well though out. I would gladly give up my entire collection of shoes and bags (and destroyed denim) in exchange for hers! I could go on and on and on, but why don't I just let her speak for herself! Hope you love her half as much as I do!

I love Jules! She is so much fun! She's a top down selfie expert! She's one of my favorites to stalk on Snapchat (@teacherfashion) because she's so down to earth and sweet. And we both love our fur babies as if they were our own flesh and blood. One of these days I will make it out to Arizona to meet this girl in person! And I don't know about you, but *my* teachers didn't dress this well when I was in school! Or maybe they did and I just didn't appreciate it back then! Either way, I love following her fashion even though we are in two totally different fields of work! Let's see what she has in store for us today!
