Vacay Bound!

YALL! I've been so busy buying gifts and attending Christmas party sing-a-longs and adding movies to my 2011 list that I completely forgot to fill you in on some upcoming fun: I'm going on vacation!

To Puerto Rico, to be exact! On Friday I will set off and join about a billion (not really, I think around 14) of my family members for the annual DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY VACATION.

Yep, it's time for the DFV! For those of you who aren't familiar.... every December my entire extended family on my mom's side takes a weeklong vacation to a tropical locale for some fun in the sun and family bonding. It's always a shit show... hence the name, DFV :)

I've been running around trying to set aside odds and ends aside to pack. Here's a list of some stuff that's definitely making into my suitcase... and a couple other things I wish would find their way in there!

This Forever 21 lace top is great - it can easily be dressed up or down. Mine is black lace, but the mint is so pretty!

Holy mother of god these Cynthia Vincent wedges are AMAZING. Colorful tribal embroidery? UM, YES PLEASE.

I was ten feet away from the door to the parking lot when I spied these Chloe sunglasses - on sale! - in Nordstroms. Five minutes later they were in my bag. I love the chocolate brown matte color of the frames!

Ever since I first spied this J.Crew polka-dotted wonder in their catalogue this summer, I've loved it. Summery spots!

Ever since watching The Hunger Games trailer, I can't get the story out of my mind. I plan on downloading and reading all three books while away - gotta catch up before the movie comes out!

I used a Gilt credit to snap up these gorgeous Kendra Scott Darby earrings a couple of weeks ago. Can't wait to wear them!

I came across this Target dress on their website and fell in love. It comes in a million colors (my favorite is this pretty lemon shade) and is convertible - you can wear it strapless, one-sided, with sleeves... the options are endless!

It's not a vacation without a tan... fingers crossed that this lotion helps me get a golden glow!

Clearly, I'm thinking a LOT of color - it's been so cold and grey in LA lately, I'm ready to brighten it up!

Are any of you going anywhere for the holidays? I'm excited to get away for a few days... the beach is calling my name!
