So… If you have followed along on Instagram for long, you have probably seen me talk about it several times. Many of my posts end with something like this: #liketkit

I don’t know how many times I have been perusing Instagram and I see something that I want to buy right then!! However, once you comment & ask someone it can take a while to get a reply. I know that I get questions in the comments of my pictures, and depending on the day, it can unfortunately take a while to get back to someone! Annoying… I know! & Even then, simply telling you my top is from J.Crew doesn’t exactly help narrow it down since there are literally hundreds of pages. It can be a huge hassle & very time consuming trying to hunt items down! But the good news is, I save the links to things I buy so that I can easily link them to each Instagram photo.

WOW! Our vacation to the Dominican Republic was absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to share all of the details with you this week! If you are looking for a beach getaway, stay tuned for a few travel tips I will be sharing 🙂

But first things first, let’s talk about this top. Obviously it’s super cute & has the perfect amount of swing to it. The navy & white stripes are a classic nautical combination, perfect for summer! It’s a super soft bamboo and spandex blend that feels amazing on. But my favorite thing about this top is something you can’t actually see! This Mott 50 top was created with sun protection in mind! It has UPF 50 in the fabric to protect you from the sun’s harsh rays. It is super light weight & will keep your skin safe!

As you might have noticed, I am fairly light skinned. I don’t tan very easily. And I am all too familiar with a painful sun burn. Fun fact: The average white t-shirt has only a UPF of 5 compared to Mott 50’s clothing all with UPF 50 built in. This shirt is the perfect answer to those hot summer days where no amount of sunscreen is going to keep your from getting a little crispy! In fact, while we were in the Dominican Republic, I got a pretty good sunburn at the start of our trip. {And yes, I applied sunscreen hourly!} Well, we were heading out for a horse ride on the beach but I didn’t want to get any more sun. So I threw on this lightweight UPF 50 top & it was perfect! I stayed just cool enough & didn’t have to worry about more pain from the sun!

Mott 50 has a huge selection of UPF 50 clothing! There are dresses, pants, tops, coverups, etc. They keep the styles classic so they can go just about anywhere! If you plan on heading to a tropical vacation or spending much time in the sun this summer, I highly encourage you to check out Mott 50 for a few skin-saving pieces 🙂 And, you can save 10% off your entire order with code ‘styledblonde’ now! Hurry & check out what all they have to offer!

Hope you’ve had a great weekend! xox

I just love Valentine’s week!! Stores are filled with flowers, candy, and sweet cards & pinks + reds seem to be everywhere you look. You will find a lot of festive color combos on my Instagram this week too! We will be traveling home {SW Missouri} this weekend to get a few things ready for the #BigAlStrong fundraiser – read more about that here – that’s taking place next weekend! So we will be celebrating the holiday a few days early with a fun date night 🙂

I think this red & blue mix is a fun little twist on the traditional Valentine’s Day colors. Plus, this mint colored coat will be the perfect transition into spring! At under $40, it’s a great color & weight to wear now + wear later. With a few fun jewels & my favorite leopard clutch, this look is one of my favs this month 🙂

Happy Wednesday, friends!
