Wear: Jordan Taylor Collection

Well hello there, we meet again. I get that I probably shouldn't have to say "oh hi guys" at the beginning of my posts but sometimes it feels strange not to. Like I should just assume you just want to start reading what I have to say before even offering a formal greeting? Do you know how bad I wish you people reading could physically respond sometimes? Like to my face. Instead of just typing a bunch of words I would see you, you would see me, we wouldn't have to come up with words and a topic for the sake of publishing a blog post but rather have a real freaking conversation. Ahhh the joys. If somebody wants to go ahead and make that happen I am game. 
Now that we got that out of the way, I am happy to announce that after much deliberation and many "no..absolutely no..way too expensive" (from his part), our fall vacation is booked. Planned. Done to the zo. Maybe I've announced this already, I don't know? All I know is I am ready to plant my booty and all of its legiments in some Arizona heat in a few weeks. People keep asking what we have planned to do while we are there. Ummm. People plan things to do while on vacation? I have a problem with this. Since when is it not satisfactory just to go somewhere to wake up at whatever time you want, lay by the pool from sun up to sun down, and repeat, repeat, repeat. Because that's all that I "plan" to do. I take that back. I have some serious plans of drinking cocktails and coaxing my husband into getting a massage (daily*) while we are there. 
Obviously in preparation for said vacation a new wardrobe was necessary. And by wardrobe I mean swimsuit cover-up because that's the only article of clothing I will actually need. Thankfully low and behold I found the swimsuit cover-up of a lifetime from Jordan Taylor Collection. It's name is pretty aqua scrunchy awesome cover-up. Also known as a marina blue boatneck oversized tee.

The thing is like Rain-X on steroids. I wore it to the lake the other week and any drop of water that landed on it rolled right off. It provided some great "HOLY COVER-UP..LOOK AT THIS THING!" moments. 
You know it's good when you show up to a friends house wearing it and the first thing your one friend says to the other is "feel that thing--it's so cool". You hear that friends? Come feel me!! 
Anyhow, I am pumped as punch that I am now officially packed for a vacation several weeks away. Thank you Jordan Taylor Collection for supplying the one and only item I will need. 
So what do you say about winning one of these for your own self to wear? In fact, we'll make it violet because violet equals perfect. I say lets do it! 
*there is no chance in H that we will be getting massages daily. once, maybe. zero times, most likely. #diaryofawifeofacheaphusband. 



  1. SO CUTE! I love that it is a T shirt dress/cover up. Those are my favorite!

  2. Love that cover-up top! I am hoping to head to Hawaii in the new year as a "happy 30th birthday" present and one of those would definitely come in handy!

  3. I live in Phoenix and let me tell you, you will have Plenty of heat. It certainly doesn't feel like fall here yet. Are you staying any where fun? I might have some good restaurant/shopping recommendations for you if you are in the Phoenix area :-)

  4. Oh this dress is so fab! You look gorgeous Erin!!! Shawn is a great photographer (much better than Chris!) ;) xx

  5. Ah, I love the oversized tee/dress! It will be perfect on your vacation!
    I agree about having a face to face conversation, sometimes blog posts/comments is just not anywhere near good enough for the discussions you want to have!

  6. I am always in search of the perfect cover up and I think this may be it!! I usually end up wearing a tee shirt - not good. Thanks for the introduction! Susan

  7. This post just made me so thirsty for a martini. Thanks for that.

  8. We're going to Arizona the first week of October! I'll have to look into getting one of these for poolside!

  9. Love the coverup and the lounge chair! Is it from Frontgate?

  10. I just bought the coverup and want to buy the sunglasses. Do they have a typical fit? I don't have a store nearby.


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
