Please welcome Elizabeth from The NOW!

Yet another day to be doubly happy! I’m thrilled that the amazing and adorable Grace of stripes & sequins asked lil ‘ol me to participate in her S&S Spotlight series! I love reading these “get to know” series myself, as I always find out something new…check it out (11am EDT).

Secondly, I have the pleasure of hosting the talented Elizabeth of The NOW today! There are a handful of blogs out there that whenever I visit, I audibly say, yep, SO my style…and The NOW is one of them.  They’ve really got it going on over there, you’ll see!

Hi everyone, it’s Elizabeth from The NOW and I am so honored to be guest blogging for Erika as I am a HUGE fan!! Well, I don’t know about any of you, but I definitely need a vacation and in about 2 months {44 days to be exact}, I am finally getting away to Maui!! Of course this means I am on the hunt for the perfect swimsuits and beach/pool essentials. To make things a little easier for myself and hopefully you, I made this  helpful guide! Thank you so much, Erika for asking me to be a part of your amazing blog.

    I have decided that I definitely deserve a little something from Tory Burch this year – her cover ups are awesome! Great collage – more than a little jealous of your upcoming trip tho! :)
