Bringing the coastal feel into work, without looking tacky.

I grew up on the Gulf-Coast of Texas so i spent plenty of warm summer days & nights fishing, boating, and playing on the beach. I considered myself a mermaid or a fish for most of my childhood. Now that I am in college 250 miles away and working a big girl job I find myself day dreaming about those days on the coast & the smell of salty air. I wish I could have no responsibilities forever & pick up & walk down the the sand within minutes, any day I please. But until then, I'll just have to bring that look into my office & keep dreaming...

1. These Kendra Scotts are DARLING! I just got them this past week & haven't gotten the chance to wear them yet but I am itching to, i'll do an outfit post when the time comes.
2. Scallops!!! I can't get enough. I love that this dress is work appropriate in so many settings just by wearing it like it is with the right shoes and you can easily just throw a blazer in almost ANY color on top. 
3. Seriously, the scallops. I think I'm a little late to the scallop party but I can not get enough. Kate Spade is the queen of scallops & this little number just happens to be on sale right now...which means she may be coming home to Momma soon ;)
4. These heels! The color, the caged heel that makes them any more playful, and THE COLOR. I love a good color pop with my shoes when I'm at the office. Did I mention that these are only $35.99?! Charlotte Russe is also running a promotion right now for BOGO $12.50 so I also scooped up these beauts, so classic & "in" right now.
5. Okay maybe I am a little too obsessed with scallops right now, can you blame a girl? They remind me of the home on the coast with a little wave inspiration so I just can't get enough. & monogrammed? Enough said.
6. Essie nail polishes don't need much explanation. These colors are a fun way to bring the coastal feel with you to work (or play) everyday. 

Happy Friday Eve Ladies!
