Happy Wednesday Friends! While I was shopping for our trip this weekend, I found SO many cute, affordable dresses! A few weeks ago, I asked you all what you were shopping for and a ton of you said casual Spring/Summer dresses! Considering, we can wear dresses 3-4 months out of the year, I always opt for affordable options. So, I’ve rounded up a ton of really cute dresses under $30 today! Most of them ship free or have free in store pick up!
Also, as I was browsing, I noticed that Target is having a huge sale on their dresses for Mother’s day! I’m rounding up a few of my Target staple favorites on stories today too, so stay tuned!
I also recently updated my Spring top roundup here with some new finds! And, if you’re looking for Spring/Summer event wear you can find a ton of affordable outfits here! I even found items for the bride-to-be!

Hope you all had a great week! This week was super productive for me! Which was awesome and SO needed after traveling on and off earlier this month. I’m headed out to Dallas next week for a blogger conference so am busy working ahead in prep for that! The amount of outfit planning and shopping I’ve done for the conference is actually insane. What does one wear to a conference with 200 other style bloggers that’s on brand, unique and still affordable? lol! All I know is I’ve shopped a ton of the new spring arrivals from all of our faves – Shopbop, Express, AE, Loft and a new fave, Revolve! If you’re looking for event wear, highly recommend checking out Revolve!
Anyway, on to this week’s outfits! It was another week full of Spring Transition looks! Spring seems to be in full swing here in Minnie. And, not to jinx us or anything, it looks like it’s here to stay (*knocks on wood*). So I’m retiring my winter coat for the season and bringing out allllll of the spring outfits!

Hello & Happy Friday friends!
Sharing a HUGE roundup from Punta Cana today! Can we just go back?! At least the temps in Minnie are nearing 50, and I’m flying out to ATX in the morning so, can’t complain 😉
I’ve had several common DMs over the last two weeks. Like I mentioned in Wednesday’s post, our WiFi at the resort was not meant for a busy blogger bee like me and, combined with Instagram/Facebook’s blackout on Wednesday, I am just now making a dent in the DMs about Punta Cana! Lots of questions about our resort, our excursion and what I did to prep! Hoping to answer lots of those today!
We stayed at the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar and booked through Apple Vacations. Ambar is a small resort within a huge complex of maybe 5-6 other Bahia Principe resorts. Ambar is the most updated (renovations finished Nov 2018) and is adults only! We explored the other resorts pretty extensively, and I’m happy we stayed in Ambar. Overall better vibes, food, and drinks! The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. We loved all of the food especially the steakhouse – M.E.A.T. I heard the Italian is good too! We also loved the all inclusive coffee shop on site. They did offer nightly shows at the main resort (Bavaro), but we typically hung out at the Sports Bar in Ambar and chatted with a few other couples we met!
If you’ve stayed at an all-inclusive or done a beach vacay before, you know they’re pretty low key. We basically got coffee every morning, were on the beach by mid-morning and then ate at the beach-side lunch buffet. So good! I think we had guacamole with every meal lol! Then spent the later afternoons at the pool bar before heading back to the room to shower and head to dinner. One thing I will say is that the a la carte restaurants at the resort fill up FAST. I suggest booking ahead – we only got two reservations the entire week!
We also did an excursion day – Janillo VIP – with Scape Park tours! We booked this through our Apple Vacations representative at the resort. Side note – I can’t speak for everyone, but we have had great experiences booking through Apple. They arrange airport transports to the resorts and have representatives on site to help you while you’re there with things like excursions and airport pick ups.
In terms of the excursion with Scape Park, we snorkled, drank on a sandbar, ate lunch on Janillo beach and then jumped in el Hoyo Azul – a giant cenote! In case you missed it, I did save the video of me jumping into the 50 ft deep hole of ice cold water to my Punta Cana highlights on Instagram. It was so scary, but so fun! Definitely a bucket list moment!
In terms of prep for the trip, I started it off with getting a wax at Waxing the City. I love that place and have been several times! If you haven’t gotten a wax before a beach vacation, you have not lived! I started a few years back, and it is life changing. Last year I added on a leg wax in addition to my standard bikini in prep for our trip to Sanibel. I didn’t have to shave my legs for 3 weeks let alone the time we were actually in warm weather! Life Changing. This time I added on underarms in addition to legs and bikini. My skin stayed smooth the entire vacation! Waxing the City locations are independently owned but are nationwide. Highly recommend checking them out if you have a vacay coming up!
I wrapped up my prep by getting a spray tan at The Glow Lounge, which is a local chain in the Cities. The gals there are SO nice! I have friends who get their spray tans done there regularly so I knew they did a good job. But, I am so impressed at how mine turned out! It’s the perfect golden brown color and looks very natural, even on my hands (you’ll know that’s not always the case if you watch my Instagram stories, haha!).
I used to go to a tanning bed to get a “base tan” before going to a tropical location and, I’ll be honest, I don’t think a base tan does ANYTHING. I still burned! Now I just get my spray tan, bring along these tanning drops to mix in with lotion once the tan starts wearing away (around day 7-8 if going in water) and apply SPF 50 like it’s my job. Skin cancer and early aging are not cute ladies!
Now on to the outfits! As always, I’m rounding up the links + sizes to every outfit from Punta Cana shared on Instagram! Most of the items below are from American Eagle, Amazon, Shopbop and, of course, Loft! Also sharing a few sales at the end for the holiday weekend and February/Punta Cana top sellers (since we didn’t get to that yet!).
FEBRUARY TOP SELLERS
2. These AE jeans were the top 2 seller for February. I basically live in these jeans. They are SO comfy and flattering! I did get the regular length because they’re cropped & they fit TTS. They’re also on sale right now!
3. These sneakers from DSW were the 3rd bestseller. Another item I essentially live in. They feel like you’re walking on clouds and are under $50, need I say more? I also picked up this leopard pair (wore them on both travel days) from the same brand last week. Size down .5 in both!
PUNTA CANA BEST SELLERS
All outfits are below with links and sizing details under the photos! Everything fits TTS unless noted otherwise. Lots of items on sale!!
AMERICAN EAGLE // 25% off AE, Aerie & Tailgate (pretty much everything!)
BANANA REPUBLIC // up to 40% off!
GOODNIGHT MACAROON // 40% off EVERYTHING with code FRESH40
TARGET // 25% off home
Be sure to follow along on my ATX adventures over the next few days! I’ll be keeping you updated on the ‘gram!
Have a great weekend everyone!

SO excited to be sharing the items I picked up for our trip to Punta Cana with you all today! I’ve gotten quite a few messages requesting a round up of all the items I’m bringing. Sounds like a ton of you are planning trips of your own! Most items below are under $50-75, and the few that are over are definitely staple pieces, like my Miller sandals.
Disclaimer because there are over 50 items below (lol). I already owned some of these items, and I purchased more than I plan to take for a few reasons. One, I’m betting that some won’t fit when I do my Spring Break try on tomorrow and will have to be returned. Two, I head to Austin, TX a week after I get back so plan to bring some of what’s below on that trip too! Given the trips are so close, I had to shop for both at the same time.
I did also pick up a new set of luggage from Calpak that’s currently on sale! I plan to do a full blog post on how I pack my carry on, which will include more info. But since the brand is part of the Shopbop sale, I’m giving you guys a quick heads up now!
