I don't know what I did to be so lucky, but I have the most thoughtful Husband. My 41st birthday is coming up and Steve surprised me with a family trip to the Bahamas! He wont tell us yet where exactly we are going, but that only makes it even more exciting.

After he told me about the trip, I had the day to myself. What a gift! So I did what I wanted to do, which was getting a coffee and walking around the mall. I knew I wanted to get some new things to take on the trip, so I thought I would show you all the things I got in case you were needing some beach-y inspiration.

I stopped in Aerie to maybe get a few things for my daughter, but after looking around for a second, I was like "hello new store!" There were so many amazing clothing items that were perfect for my age range too. Have you ever shopped there? Seriously, go check it out!

As always, I wanted clothes and bathing-suits that are flattering and age appropriate. You are not gonna catch me in a thong suit bottoms, but I will be in something cute and on trend. 

I wanted to show you everything I will be wearing when I am in the Bahamas so that hopefully when you see me, you already know where you can get everything! Because I know how you girls are...gotta be quick! 

I hope you all love the video as much as I do and are able to find some things that you like! Let me know what you think!
