Striped T-Shirt Dress

Striped TShirt Dress OPS #1

Is it just me or is going to work or school the only thing that reminds you what day of the week it is? Jesse and I have been in the Bahamas for 5 days now and keeping track of the days is not high on our list of priorities.

I’m telling you though, if you haven’t been to the Bahamas or any tropical beach getaway, do it. I saw a meme on Facebook that said if you spend $10 a day on lunch, coffee, whatever that’s $300 a month and $3,600 a year which is more than enough for an amazing beach vacation.

So to all you workaholics, mamas, and check to check people out there, if you skipped the coffee and bagel in the morning and saved that $10 instead, you would not only have enough money for a little vacation, but you would also have a nice beach bod for skipping the bagel and cream cheese haha!

Anyway, I wanted to share this super comfy, casual everyday look I wore the week before we left. If you don’t have a striped dress like this I highly recommend it. They are so comfortable and you can accessorize it a million ways.  This dress also makes a great transitional piece for Fall with maybe a pair of ankle booties and a military inspired jacket??

These are also my favorite pair of sandals by B.P. and they come in several colors (including a snake print that’s tempting me…) and are under $50! I love them because they are so comfortable and are easy on easy off which is great for the beach. And at $50 how can you not get one more pair of sandals? They do run a bit small though and I had to get a half size bigger than I usually wear.

So what do you like to wear for running errands? Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll see you Friday!

Little Yellow Romper

Little Yellow Dress OPS #1

Happy Friday! I’m so excited about today and this look! The color of this romper makes me think of sunny days and is a nice mustard yellow that looks great with cooler skin tones. The fabric is light and breezy, and I love the lace crochet detailing. This romper is on it’s way to going out of stock at Lulu’s but they also have this super cute 2 toned, print romper with a gorgeous strappy back that screams ‘vaca’ (no, this isn’t a sponsored post I just seriously love this brand!).

It’s been almost 2 years since I’ve been on an international trip and as you’re reading this I am in the Bahamas! I’m beyond ready and excited. I think just getting to spend an entire week with Jesse relaxing, trying new foods, and making fun memories together is what I’m most looking forward to.

I packed a lot of dresses & rompers for our trip because I love easy one-and-done outfits so I only have to think about accessorizing and not trying to match things up.

This will be our first big trip together and for me, going on an international trip together is kind of one of my “have to do this” things if it’s going to get serious lol I know we are going to have an amazing time and I know he’s definitely ready for a vacation as well.

I’ll be gone for the next week but I’m planning on having posts up for you guys next Wednesday and Friday as usual. I’m so excited to share the looks we will photograph in the Bahamas but depending on how much work I’ll be able to get done you might not see those until we get back.

Have a fantastic weekend guys and if you have been to Nassau comment your must see/do/eat recommendations below! I would really love the suggestions. Thanks!

Bahamas Bucket List

Bahamas Bucket List

In 2 days Jesse and I leave for the Bahamas for a long over due vacation. We are both so excited! Relaxing, swimming, exploring, and making amazing memories together are what this trip is all about, but if you know me at all, you know I’m a list girl so you know I have a list of “musts” for this trip.

From eating to seeing and doing, here is what’s on my Bahamas bucket list:

1- Queen’s Staircase: This sounds like a pretty cool tourist attraction (and maybe an opportunity for a photo op?) and has a lot of history so I’ll have to see the stairs for myself. The 66 steps were built in the 18th century for Queen Victoria but there are only 65 now because the last step is now under the paved road (and honestly, thank God because I hate the number 6  #ijustdo).

2- Daiquiri Shack: I read about this place on another travel guide and they said they are hands down the best daiquiris in Nassau. They make them with fresh fruit they got at the market that day and add in the famous Bahama rum and now my mouth is watering. ‘Nuff said.

3- Aquadventure Water Park: People… I mean, people… I just can’t wait to have the time of my life in this massive water park with the infamous Atlantis water slide that goes underwater into the shark tank. 141 acres, 11 pools, a mile long river ride with rapids, high speed water slides ‘scuse me, I need to lie down.

4- Swim with the dolphins: I’ve been told this is a must do and as an animal lover I didn’t need much convincing. Hanging out with some dolphins? Definitely on the bucket list.

5- Try Conch: Ever since reading Lord of the Flies in high school I’ve been curious about Conch and apparently Conch burgers are a popular item in the Bahamas. I think it might just be un-American to not eat their version of the burger so it’s going to happen.

That’s it! We are staying 8 nights and I think 5 things is a good list because then I don’t like feeling like I have to something that day because I didn’t have enough time and then not get to relax enough because we were running around the whole time.

So have you been to the Bahamas? What were your favorite things to do/places to eat? If you have suggestions or recommendations please comment them below! I would love to read them. Have a great week!

Psst! If you have a minute to take this 5 question survey that would be awesome! I love your feedback and I want to make sure One Pot Slop’s content is geared to you! Thanks!

Accessories I Can’t Live Without

Fav Accessories

Pineapple earrings | Knee high boots | Brown bag | Blue earrings | Tan suede bag | Pink earrings | Gold cuff | Lace-up wedges | White bag | Silver &  Turquoise Cuff | Grey tassel earrings | OTK boots

Hey guys! omg omg omg in 1 week I leave for the Bahamas!! I’m so excited and I can’t wait to share the trip with you guys.

I wanted to put together a round up of the accessories I have been loving lately and the ones I have my eye on. Accessories are one of those things that can really liven up an outfit and also make packing light easier. Have you ever tried different accessories on with the same dress and had it look totally different? Try it, the power of accessorizing is amazing and it can save you money shopping for a new pair of earrings vs a whole new outfit.

Since I am going on vaca soon and packing is on my brain I wanted to share a few versatile pieces I’m loving.

As you can see, statement earrings are my go to accessory. I prefer to have a bare decolletage just because I think that’s a really beautiful part of the body, and a pair of bold or colorful statement earrings can really add interest all on their own. Also if you’re in the market for a great little investment bag I can’t recommend the white Kate Spade enough. It goes with everything, holds all of the things you would need with you, and of course is made really well. I absolutely love mine.

Thanks for spending some time with me and OPS and make sure you check back next week for a bucket list post you won’t want to miss!

Hair Care Review

Hair Care One Pot Slop #1

There are so many posts about skin care and serums and moisturizers, and creams, and beauty regimes, but where are all the hair care posts?? Between the heat and the bleach and the sun and the chlorine, I want to make sure my hair stays happy and healthy so it doesn’t revolt on my head and make me look like a member of Mufasa’s pride. So here is my little hair care review, short, sweet, and something I completely couldn’t live without.

1- Shea Moisture hair mask: I got this at Ulta on the half off shelf and it was the last one left. Even on a sale table if there’s only one left I usually assume that means a lot of other people love it or want to try it and for $7 I grabbed it up and have loved it ever since.

This is the first time I’ve used this brand and I’m so glad I found it because the product is amazing and they donate 10% of sales to the Sofi Tucker Foundation, to help women-owned businesses, or to support the communities where they source their ingredients, so not only do they retail for an amazing price (full price is only $12.99 and they are on BOGO 50% OFF!) but you can feel good about your purchase as a donation as well. I’m looking forward to trying these 2 hair masks next: Fruit Fusion Coconut Water & Jamaican Black Castor Oil.

My routine is going to the gym and swimming laps in the pool, so my hair gets doused with chlorine regularly, and it’s not her fav… Once I get out of the pool I rinse my hair really well and then I put this mask on when I get home (even though it says ‘apply to clean hair’ I do what I want lol). I let it sit for as long as I can, anywhere from 5min to an hour, (it will dry and your hair will feel crunchy if you leave it this long but it rinses out don’t worry). Then I shower and shampoo my hair really well to get out any extra mask or chlorine and of course condition. Your hair will feel like it has never heard of “color” or “chlorine”.

2- Garnier Fructis Leave-in conditioner & Sleek & Shine Anit Frizz Serum: I always like to hydrate my hair with a leave in conditioner and/or oil so it can hydrate and recoup over night, just like you do for your skin with a face serum. I’ve been loving these drug store ones and the leave in conditioner was actually a re-buy (and only $3!). I run a bit of the oil through the ends of my hair after I’ve styled it if they are looking or feeling extra fried. I also love that they don’t make your hair feel like it has anything in it and it doesn’t weigh it down.

3- Organix Moisturizing finishing spray: This spray is also something I got at Ulta from the same sale shelf as the mask and it was only $3! How could I say no? They had a few different ones but I went with one promising hydration and shine and that’s exactly what it delivers.

This is a finishing spray so after you dry and style your hair you spritz this in and it just makes your hair come to life. It instantly takes away any dullness and makes it look shiny, healthy, and hydrated. Seriously if you want to try a new product to help keep the integrity of your hair the mask and this spray are all you need. Even at full price this is only $7.99 and I swear it makes a HUGE difference.

Thanks for hanging out with me and I hope this was helpful! Let me know if you have a hair care routine like this or if you just enjoyed this post. I want to make sure I’m publishing content you enjoy and not boring you to death! Haha! Have a great week and I’ll see you Friday!!
