One of the things I've really been working on this year is becoming stronger. I've always been petite and athletic, but strength has never been, well, one of my strengths. So, in addition to adding more weight based workouts to my routine, I recently added yoga to the mix. To be honest, I never really believed in it before - I always thought it just looked like long, drawn-out stretching - Boy was I wrong! The core strength that can be gained through it is crazy! Needless to say, I am now obsessed. So getting a "Yoga in Mexico" picture was definitely on my Acapulco trip bucket list.

When planning this shot, I knew that I wanted a high neck swimsuit. They are so in style right now and I am loving them!! They are perfect for lounging around and are amazing for beach activities, yoga and jet skiing included. They are universally flattering and help keep everything where it's supposed to be. {Just saying, that is definitely important! Some suits only take one intense wave to get disheveled.}

Beachy Billabong Maxi

When it comes to packing for a beach vacation, the first things I grab are maxis. Being as transitional as they are - Worn as cover ups, out for meals, or even just walks on the beach - they are the perfect use of luggage space. (Surely I'm not the only one that packs based on priority due to the fact that I am almost always right on the weight line for my suitcases.) Needless to say, when I packed for my Mexico trip, this dress was one of the first things I pulled. Billabong just always has the most effortless pieces!! I feel like any time I wear their products, I barely have to accessorize because the piece themselves make such statements.

Referencing yesterday's post real quick, in case you missed it on Sharon's Instagram yesterday... 

Frill will be airing on Beyond the Tank this coming Tuesday, April 5, at 10pm on ABC!! Be sure to tune in! While airing, we will have some amazing deals running, so make sure to check our website and sign up for our email list!

Hi All!! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!! I spent mine with my Church on Morgan family, pictured at the bottom of this post. {If you are in the Raleigh area and are looking for a new church home I would LOVE for you to join me!!} Don't worry, I will be sharing my Easter Sunday look soon... Whenever I'm done posting the millions of pictures I took while I was on vacation in Mexico. I apologize, but not really. I know it seems like I've been posting these resort pictures non-stop, but can you blame me!?! It was just too picture perfect!

Anyway, I bought this dress last year and literally wear it every summer. Anytime it gets warm I am all about LWDs {little white dresses}. They are the perfect palette for tons of color, like this clutch {only $7!} and these sandals that I've been eyeing. Considering their price tag, though, I decided to DIY my own version of them. I will be sharing a How-To video soon, so stay posted! 

And now... the moment you've all been waiting for... my HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT...

Frill will be airing on Beyond the Tank this month!!!!! That's right, we are going to be on National TV again!! {Only a little excited, in case you can't tell.} When you might ask? Check out Sharon's Instagram at 3pm today for an exact time and date!

The Perfect Resort Shift

All pictures were taken at our resort in Mexico, The Emporio Acapulco

Is there anything better than the perfect print!? I really don't think there is. I'm a really picky person when it comes to patterned fabric (I feel like there is just such a fine line between tacky and cute), so when I found this dress at Swagger I was obsessed! I love the dropped waist cut and the fact that the print is so fun. Doesn't it just feel so Trina Turk!?

Sorry guys, almost all of the stuff from today's post is sold out/not online, but I've done my best to link similar stuff. I will let you know if any of it gets restocked!

Palm Printed Shorts







Photo cred: Sharon Bui

Well y'all, yesterday was officially my first day back in the office since being in Mexico and what a whirlwind! So much to do and so little time, so only a short post today.

I purchased the shorts shown above from Old Navy a couple of years ago {who knew I was going to be ahead of such a huge trend} and have been reworking them into my wardrobe as the weather has started to get warmer. Although I have not been able to find these exact shorts since, I did find these this season and dare I say it, I like them even better! Not only that, but they come in a romper version too!! {D - All of the above please.}

Happy Tuesday!
