Get Styled: Tropical Honeymoon

November 10, 2011

Hi all! As it has been getting colder outside, I have been daydreaming about taking a nice, warm, tropical vacation. I think that going someplace sunny and warm is the perfect getaway from the chilly Midwest winter! If you are planning a tropical honeymoon or vacation anytime soon, don’t forget to pack some of these essentials: a big, floppy hat and sunglasses to block the sun, maxi dresses that can transition from daytime to night and don’t forget the sunscreen! Because nobody looks good with a sunburn!
