Vacation Outfits

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Outfit deets:
* Forever 21 chiffon top (old) with Old Navy cami underneath.
* Sirens skort (fits me better than the Zara version did, plus it was a fraction of the price at $15--run and get one as this was a recent purchase and it also comes in white, pink and blue.  Target also has this for $25 in black but didn't fit me as well).
* Accessories:  Sirens necklace & Le Chateau cuff.


Outfit deets:
* Le Chateau top which you've seen last summer with a skirt.

Punta Cana Photo Diary

Friday, April 18, 2014


Today I'm sharing some photos from the real camera, but to be honest, between snapping photos on both our phones, and not wanting to lug the 'real camera' around all the time, I feel the majority of my photos were taken on my phone.  As an added bonus they are easily uploaded to Instagram and Facebook and isn't that more fun?  

Still, I wanted to try and get some good shots we will have forever, and so, with that said, here are some that you haven't seen, of our week in Punta Cana...

Room Inspiration | Closet / Office

Thursday, April 17, 2014


I thought I would take a little break from the vacation posts and share my room inspiration for the second bedroom aka my closet / office.

The current state of the second bedroom still looks about the same as a few weeks ago; I have done a bit more unpacking, but until we build some sort of organized closet system, I can't do much with current items in boxes.

As I previously mentioned, I want the space to be open, clean, functional and with a base colour of white.  I recently purchased the desk above--which is still in the box--and it arrived right before our trip.  We have been planning to get to Ikea so maybe this weekend will work out for that.  I have created a closet-office Pinterest board with more inspiration, if you'd like to see.


A.Co est. 1984 on Instagram | Punta Cana Vacation Shots

Wednesday, April 16, 2014


I'm rolling out all my vacation posts this week and next up, Instagram shots!

I know not everyone has Instagram so I wanted to share shots of my vacation I posted on there.  If you already follow me (I'm @acoest1984), you can skip this post and come back tomorrow, but if not, here's a few things you may have missed.

Also, if you do have Instagram, you can find all these photos under our vacation hashtag #acomsppuntacana.

Cheers!

Shorts Overalls | An outfit from vacation

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Outfit deets:
* Ardene overalls (new!); I had planned to remove the daisies before we left on vacation but ran out of time.  I know daisies are a huge trend this year but I'm not really feeling it, and despite thinking it's cute on theses, I'll still likely cut them off.
* H&M tank (old).
* Converse sneakers which I finally got to wear outside during our vacation, plus I used them as my travelling shoes instead of my normal flats.

This is a super simple outfit from my trip, but next time I'll style these overalls with a tee.  That was my initial plan, but the t-shirt I brought was too flowy and it wasn't doing any favours to the overalls, nor me.

That said, this denim won't be seeing the light of day for a good month, with the cool temps we are still having.  As an aside, it feels good to at least put away the winter jackets and pull out something a little lighter like leather jackets and trench coats.  Hope you're having a great week thus far and see you tomorrow.
