As some of you may already know, we were in St. Lucia last week for a sister vacation! We went on vacation to celebrate Michelle’s 25th and golden birthday. St. Lucia is located in the Eastern Caribbean region, relatively close to South America. While on the island we stayed at the Coconut Bay Resort & Spa, which is located less than 5 minutes from the airport. We loved the beautiful ocean and warm weather! Now here’s a look at the outfits we wore while we were in St. Lucia.
| Lilly for Target Jumpsuit | Jack Rogers Sandals | J. Crew Bracelet |
| Tobi dress | Target sandals |
| Lilly for Target Dress | J. Crew Bracelet | Dillard (Not sure the exact brand) Wedges |
| Dry Goods dress | Ivy & Leo wedges | Charming Charlie earrings & bracelet | Francesca’s bracelet |
It’s a nice day today and since I have to work, I decided to wear one of my new skirts! I got this skirt on sale on Red Dress Boutique for only $15, such a steal! With this outfit being black and white, I went with a bright coral necklace to add a little pop of color to the look! I love this classy look for a day at work.
| Top Express | Skirt Red Dress Boutique | Heels J. Crew |
With Fourth of July coming up this weekend, we decided to do a look book for the holiday instead of our usual ‘What We Wore Wednesday’ post. We’ve put together multiple looks, using clothing from our everyday closets. Since we used clothing from our closets and didn’t buy clothing that would only be good for the Fourth of July, these looks can be worn any other day as well. If you haven’t figured out what you’re wearing yet for the Fourth of July, we hope these looks will give you some inspiration!
| J. Crew Top | Express Skirt | Jack Rogers Sandals | Tory Burch Bracelet |
I have now started work for the summer, which means during the week I have an excuse to dress up now! For work during the summer I love to wear dresses and skirts! This skirt is one of my favorites. I like the shade of pink that it is and also the length is great for work. Even though it was nice out yesterday, it still gets a little chilly in the office. I decided I wanted to wear my J. Crew chambray shirt since the sleeves can be long or rolled up. I go back and forth between wearing flats and heels at work, but since I knew I would be running some errands I decided to go with my favorite pair of sandals.
| Ivy & Leo romper | Target shoes | Marley Lilly clutch | Charming Charlie earrings & bracelet |
Yesterday I spent the day running errands and doing a bit of shopping. I’ve been wanting to wear this romper ever since I got it. I decided yesterday was a good day to wear it because it was pretty warm and this romper is really comfortable for running around in. I just bought these wedges last week from Target and thought they would look perfect with this romper as well. I finished off the look with some gold jewelry and my Marley Lilly clutch.
Wedding season is in full swing! We just went to our first wedding of the season over the weekend. It was a beautiful day for a wedding and we had a great time! We thought it would be fun to show you what we wore, as well as give you some tips when figuring out what to wear to a wedding
1) I love the neutral colors of this outfit! I think this would be a good professional look for work this summer while still staying stylish. 2) This dress is so pretty! I love the light blue and the statement necklace is a nice touch. 3) I have been looking for a cute floral romper and I really like this one! I like the little opening in the back!
1) I normally don’t wear much yellow, but I really like this tank top! I think this outfit would be perfect for spring and summer, especially when I get a tan! 2) This dress is simple, but I love the color. The accessories really add a lot to this dress as well. 3) This is another outfit that would be perfect for spring or a cooler summer night. I really want this top!
We hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Outfit details: J Crew Top | American Eagle capris | Jack Roger Sandals
Jewelry details: Margaret Elizabeth Teardrop Bangle | Charlene K Triangle Double Drop Earrings in 14KT Gold plate
Last week it was cold and rainy most days and this week it finally warmed up! To celebrate the warmer weather being back I wanted to pick an outfit that included a bright spring color. I decided to go with one of my favorite new pieces, a minty blue scalloped top from J Crew. I love this top because even though it’s simple the bottom still make it fun! Since it was warm outside but still not hot enough for shorts I went with one of my go to capris from American Eagle.
To complete my outfit I went with my white Jack Roger sandals. My bracelet and earrings are both from Rocksbox. I don’t wear a ton of bracelets since I usually have my Fitbit on but I love this Margaret Elizabeth bangle and I’m excited to be able to style it a few more times before having to send it back. My earrings are Charlene K and the were my favorite piece I received in my Rocksbox. They are so lightweight and I love that they can go with so many different style of outfits.
Jewelry details: Kendra Scott Alex Earring in Colbalt Cat’s Eye | Gorjana Bali Tube Small V Necklace
Until Summer vacation hits, these posts will be featuring my outfits I wear for work. I had been waiting for a nice spring day to wear my new Francesca’s top that I got earlier this spring and yesterday ended up being a good day for it. I also thought this top went perfectly with the Kendra Scott earrings. I then decided to pair this top with one of my favorite pair of dress pants to wear when it’s warmer. I got these black pants from Target a few years ago and they are so comfortable! I really like how they fit. I wish I would’v gotten a few more pairs in black.
I finished off my outfit with some new black sandals that I also got from Target. I believe these sandals were only around $16 and they had them in multiple colors. The earrings and necklace I’m wearing are both from my Rocksbox. I really like the Kendra Scott earrings and the color of them. However, I will be sending them back since I don’t know if I would get enough use out of them. When I originally saw the necklace in its packaging I didn’t think it looked like something I would like, but I was pleasantly surprised when I put it on. I absolutely love it and I’m debating about whether or not I should keep it!

Happy Pinspiration Friday!!! We apologize for not doing this post in a few weeks. We promise to be better at doing Pinspiration Friday every week. Now let’s get into our picks for this week!
1) I love everything about this outfit, especially the shirt and the color of it. I basically just need this shirt in my closet! 2) These earrings are simply gorgeous. I wouldn’t mind adding them to my jewelry collection! I think they would especially be great for the summer season. 3) I already have this sweater. I really like the shirt it’s paired with in this pin and how both the sweater and shirt sleeves are rolled up in it. Next time I wear this sweater, I think I’m going to try to style it similar to this!
1) I just really love the color of this dress! I think its so pretty, plus I love the criss cross in the front! 2) I’m always a sucker for a simple black and white outfit. I also am in love with the heels in this picture I think they would be a great shoe to pair with a variety of outfits. 3) I love everything about these shorts! I love the floral pattern and the colors of the shorts! Also, the scalloped bottoms are of course an added bonus!!

As some of you may know last week was spring break for me! This year I went to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with one of my college friends. We had a great time and overall some pretty wonderful weather.
Since we got into Myrtle Beach after 11:00 at night I am going to start with our first full day. Our first day was the only day that we had bad weather. It rained on and off for most of the day so we decided to start things off by doing some shopping and going to a movie. We normally wouldn’t have gone to a movie, but with the bad weather and the new Cinderella movie that just came out we couldn’t resist going! After we went to the movie, we went to the outlet mall that was right by us and went to Kate Spade. They had so many cute items and everything was 50% off plus another 15% off because we had our student ids with us. We couldn’t stay their long since we were going to a show soon and had to go back and change.
That evening we went to a show called Hot Jersey Nights, which was fun and the perfect thing to do on a rainy evening.
Following that we went to Broadway at the Beach to eat at Senor Frogs where we could watch and cheer on our men’s basketball team as they played for the big 12 championship. We ended the night at a piano bar called Crocodile Rocks. Neither of us had been to a piano bar before, but we were both glad we ended up going here. It was a lot of fun and very entertaining!
We started the day off with going to breakfast at a cute little place called Windy Hill Breakfast & Lunch. It’s one my favorite places to get breakfast while in Myrtle Beach. After that we went back to the outlet mall and did some shopping at J Crew. They had 50% off the entire store all weekend long and I couldn’t resist getting some new items for spring. After we were all done shopping there we went and laid out at the pool and ocean. It was such a perfect day and we were loving the warm weather after a longer winter. Of course we couldn’t pass up taking some photos while on our walk on the beach!
Once it started getting later in the afternoon, we decided it was time to head in and get ready for supper. Emily and I always love going to Japanese Steak Houses to eat together so we thought we might as well go to one while we were here. We went to Nakato Japanese Steakhouse and it is definitely the best I have ever been to. When you order hibachi you get soup, salad, shrimp, rice, noodles, vegetables, and of course whatever meat you ordered. It was so much food and it was all delicious! We definitely had enough food to take home for a whole other meal.
We were so full after eating so we went back to our place for a bit to relax before heading out again. Later that night we went and explored the marina right by us and did some exploring of some local neighborhoods. We enjoyed looking around and seeing all the beautiful houses.
We started off our day by going to Market Common outdoor shopping center. It’s a little further away, but it’s always worth the drive. We went into a few boutique type places while we were there and ended up buying things from Current XXVII and Ivy & Leo. On our way back we stopped at the Myrtle Beach Skywheel. This was a really unique place to go and see with the Ferris wheel, pier, and little shops. We thought about going on the Ferris wheel but both decided it was better to look at than actually go on it.
After returning back to our place, we decided it was time to head to the pool/beach where we stayed for the rest of the afternoon. Our evening was more laid back and uneventful, which was kind of nice. We went to Steak N’ Shake for supper since we don’t have one close to us and we both love eating there. Then we went to Barefoot Landing, which was basically across the street from us to check out some of the shops they had there. We didn’t really end up getting much but it was still a good time to look around and see what they all had. We stayed in for the rest of the night after that and just drank some wine and hung out.
Our final day was spent exactly how it should be-at the beach and pool! We were out there most of the morning and all afternoon. We wanted to stock up on all the sun possible before heading back to the Midwest. Even though we both wore sunscreen and reapplied we got a little sunburnt. It was definitely worth it to be able to spend our last day outside by the water though.
Once we finally headed back inside, we got ready for supper where we went to an amazing Italian restaurant called Villa Tuscanna. It’s one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to and all the workers were so nice. I would highly recommend if you are ever in the area to stop by.
Afterward we ended up going out and having green beer since it was St. Patrick’s day and this was our first time being able to have it now that we’re 21. We didn’t stay out too long with having to get up early and still having to get everything packed up and ready to leave.
I ended up getting a lot of great things while on spring break and you can watch the video below to see what I all got!
This is our last post in our NYC Prep series because tomorrow we’ll be flying to New York City finally and I couldn’t be more excited! This will be our third time going to New York City, which is nice since we know our way around a bit better and have a better idea of what we want to do! In today’s post I’m going to give you a look into how I pack my suitcase. You’ll also get a glimpse of what I’m all bringing with me to New York.
Since we’re only going for two nights, we won’t be checking any luggage. I decided to bring my go-to carry on suitcase that I’ve had for years. I purchased this suitcase from Kohl’s and also have it in a bigger size as well. This suitcase has held up really well over the years and has quite a bit of room in it for its size.
Below is a sneak peek at the outfits I’m packing in my suitcase. On the left is the sweater I’ll be wearing home from the airport on Sunday. The middle item is a short sleeve shift dress that I’ll be wearing with leggings. Then I’ll be wearing the polka dot sweater with the black skirt to one of the Broadway shows we go to.
A few years ago I discovered the Eagle Creek packing cubes and they are an absolute lifesaver when it comes to packing your suitcase. I’ve purchased all of my packing cubes from The Container Store. I’m able to fit a lot more in my suitcase when I use the packing cubes and they keep things organized nicely. Below, you can see the packing cubes empty and then how I pack my things in them.
The first packing cube holds all of my tops in it. I could definitely fit more in this packing cube as well. The middle packing cube has my skirt, shorts, a t-shirt, and tank tops. This one also has plenty of room for me to pack more. The third packing cube has my undergarments, socks, tights, and a pair of leggings in it. As you can see, the packing cubes make it so you can pack a lot more clothes!
All of my toiletries fit in the above toiletry bag. This organizer is from Vera Bradley. I really like it since it folds up nicely and you can hang it in the bathroom for convenience when you’re using it. Also, I’m taking my Rebecca Minkoff crossbody purse, along with this LongChamp tote bag. I’m using the tote bag for my carry on and then I’ll be using the purse while in NYC since I don’t want to deal with carrying a big purse with me.
Now here is how my suitcase looks all packed up. The only thing I need to add is my makeup bag, which will fit in nicely on top!
I hope you enjoyed this post and have a fabulous weekend! I know Rachel and I will on our weekend getaway to NYC! Make sure you’re following us on our social media sites, especially Twitter and Instagram (@2classysisters), because we’ll be posting pictures/updates frequently while we’re in New York!
