Squad Goals!

I am a goal focused person.


In order to push myself I set goals.  It helps me grow, achieve and strive on a daily basis.


A great t-shirt reminder never hurts!  Suburban Riot’s t-shirts are a favorite go to of mine.  Inexpensive, fun fashion pick me ups.


Imagine the happy squeal when a fashion blogger named reversecommuter found a t-shirt company called Sub-urban Riot?!  Match made in heaven!

Perhaps a rash guard or two… Cabana Life has been a fave for years (both for children and adults).

Maybe a fun sun skirt (with a secret built in compression band) that works as a great poolside lounging accessory!

Finally to top it all off, a big ol’ floppy hat to combat the sun wrinkles!  Eugenia Kim is the queen of sun hats.  Also check out Regine Chevallier, her line of hats begs for an accompanying yacht!

reversecommuter is loving the slit godet tank – silk, sexy, versatile – bound to be a favorite basic in my Spring wardrobe.  The classic cropped turtleneck – ridiculousness reinvented! Jonathan’s knit pencil skirt is quite possibly one of THE most flattering (aka forgiving) knit pieces available!  Click the blue phrases, go shopping and wear gorgeous clothes!
