#OOTD: Maxi Dress | Styled 2 Ways

16 Jul

This week Steph and Christina are styling the Pink Stitch Resort Maxi Dress two different ways. Take it away Girls!

Steph:
Coastal Chic

I am in love with this Pink Stitch Resort Maxi Dress in Azure Blue. It’s the perfect flowy maxi for a hot summer day at Rapunzel’s.

During the day at work my “must haves” are  an arm full of Bourbon & Boweties Bracelets (coins & a sea of blue are my favorites) & TKEES on my feet. These days I can’t get enough of TKEES in Coco Butter and Sea Snake. I completed my mermaid look today with a pair of Sea Snake.

After work I can throw on a chunky beaded belt for a sunset cruise on the boat! (Margaritas are a non-negotiable!) I added an Annie Fischer Pineapple Pouch for my cell phone, lip gloss, sunnies & keys and I’m ready to go!

Christina:
A Preppy State of Dress

There is this little old saying that goes; you must always have the perfect little black dress. Well, on Palm Beach the perfect little black dress actually translates into the perfect little summer dress. When I set my eyes on the new Pink Stitch Resort Maxi Dress I just knew I had to have it. I went for an effortless chic look without all the fuss that goes into making an outfit.

Sometimes, it really is better to go with the saying, less is more. I made sure to keep the jewelry to a minimum only accenting it with Bourbon & Boweties Bracelets and a Zacasha tassel necklace. I knew I would be spending the day running errands around Palm Beach, so I made sure to keep the shoes simple. You can often catch me rocking my TKEES or some other fashionable flat around town. So leave all the fuss at home, grab your favorite clutch and aviator sunglasses and you’re good to go!

What’s In My Beach Bag… and Win a Gift Card!

12 Jul

As I was doing my Friday morning ritual of cleaning out and re-packing my beach bag in preparation for a weekend of chasing my kiddo around the pool, I was laughing at the amount of things that I feel are “necessities” for our activities. Most of these “must-haves” can be found at Rapunzel’s Closet. This exercise inspired me to do the blogger’s “obligatory:” What’s In My Beach Bag Post.
blogSadly, this is only a portion of what I carry to the pool with us each weekend. The bag is still filled with tennis clothes, extra swim suits, rash guards, an additional outfit for both myself and my little, and clean Hanky Panky undies of course! I never forget my US Weekly Magazine either – it’s my mini-vacay while my little naps.
blogLiterally, the first purchase that I made after my son was born and we had “officially” announced his name, was my L.L Bean Boat and Tote Bag with his monogram. I truly believe that I cannot survive my summer without it. It seems to be bottomless and yet I can always find what I need. Of course you’ll see how many other bags I carry within it which makes it easier for me to find things. I also carry RCR’s Jesse Walker lunch bag. I love this insulated bag because I can fit all of his snacks and an ice pack fits perfectly in the inner pocket. It smushes easily to fit in my bag, yet doesn’t totally crush his snacks. I wish we sold these at Lil Rapunzel’s – I’d buy one for each day of the week. Another staple in my weekend life is my white waffle makeup case. It’s lined in plastic and holds my “pool” makeup in case we decide to stay for drinks or dinner. Unfortunately we no longer carry these in store, but there are plenty of places that offer a white monogrammed makeup case! I also happen to be a little obsessed with monograms in case you hadn’t noticed.
blogI have a blonde hair, blue eyed child so I plow through sunscreen like it’s my job. I love the BabyGanics Sunscreen Spray because it doesn’t have bad chemicals. Something about the label and the big NO just makes me feel good about using this line. What I love about the spray is that I can cover a large amount of area before my tot starts running towards the pool. This isn’t an aerosol can so it’s not emitting fumes of any sort either!

Sunscreen Bag ~ $25 (more colors available)
Anchor Bikini Bag ~ $30

The newest additions to my beach bag this summer are my Hayden Reis Sailcloth Bags. I was carrying my Sunscreen around in a Ziploc, (apparently a big no-no) but now I have it in this super cute “sunscreen specific” bag. As an added bonus – the bright orange color makes it easy to find! I also love the Anchor Bikini Bag. While you won’t find me sporting a bikini while I’m chasing around a 2-year old, it’s great for getting all of our wet clothes home after a day at the pool. These bags are made of super durable and lightweight sailcloth and they are way more chic than a plastic bag!

Snapping Turtle Kids Toddler Navy Swim Trunk ~ $52

My son goes through no less than 4 bathing suits per weekend. I love this Snapping Turtle Kids simple navy swim trunk because I know that it will match whatever rashguard I have in my bag. These suits aren’t lined so they don’t leave marks on my toddler’s chunky thighs. Baby swim designers always forget that these little guys wear swim diapers for a while so they don’t need a liner. Snapping Turtle Kids really understands how to make a swim trunk for a little swimmer!

blog

TKEES in bunches of colors all available at Rapunzel’s Closet ~ $50

When I got to the bottom of my bag I noticed that I had THREE different pairs of TKEES in the bag.  My collection seems to have migrated from my closet to the beach bag. I have probably thrown a different pair in every weekend for the last month and never actually cleaned any out. Knowing me – I’d probably wear three different pairs in one day anyway. Totally normal, right?

So there you have it – a long-winded tour of my personal beach bag. Now it’s your turn to tell us what favorite item from Rapunzel’s Closet is in your beach bag! Leave a comment below or post a picture on our @shoprapunzels Instagram Feed and #rapunzelsbeachbag  and you will be entered to win a $50 Gift Card to Rapunzel’s Closet or Lil Rapunzel’s! Be sure to tag @ShopRapunzels too! We’ll pick a winner next Friday!

Ashley is not shy about her love of accessories. I wasn’t too shocked that out of all the Rapunzel’s ladies, Ashley was the only one to choose one of our trendy accessories as her Spotlight Item. After all, every girl knows no outfit is complete without accessorization!

“The CC Design Tassel is definitely my favorite necklace that we’re carrying at the moment. I love the different color wooden beads Christine uses and most of all, I’m obsessed with the turquoise. The hints of gold don’t hurt either!”

Spotlight Item: Stephanie
blog

Stephanie had a particularly easy time picking out her Spotlight Item. Just the day before I asked her to pick out her favorite item, we had received a brand new line at the store called Goddis. Known for their knitwear, Goddis is what’s on all the girl’s minds. It’s no surprise that our Store Manager Stephanie, called dibs on the Indie Shorts for her item!

“As soon as we got these shorts, I immediately put them on display in the front of the store. They’re so different and unlike anything we have in stock right now. Everybody can appreciate a classic jean short, but these Indie Shorts are something I can definitely justify buying for my summer wardrobe!” –Stephanie

Come in and pick out your Spotlight Item and see what they say about you!

Fashion Icon ~ Stephanie

Stephanie’s Style Icon: Jessica Alba

blog
Our store manager Stephanie has a style of her own. Her relaxed, beach-girl style has remained intact throughout all the passing trends at Rapunzel’s Closet. But every once in a while, Stephanie likes to draw inspiration from her favorite fashion icon—Jessica Alba.

Jessica Alba is your classic California girl and her style mirrors her laid-back, West Coast upbringing. Being a mother of two, it wouldn’t make sense that Jessica has a lot of time to focus on her style. Yet in every paparazzi picture, we can’t help but notice that Jessica looks like she’s walking straight off of a movie set. So with that, Stephanie decided to create her own Alba-inspired look using some of her favorite brands (::: cough :::Jen’s Pirate booty :::cough:::)
blog
Denim shorts are a must-have for any Florida (or California) girl. They can easily go from day time errands to a casual beach-bar at night. The AG Jeans Hailey Ex-Boyfriend cut-offs are a store favorite. Stephanie chose the Jen’s Pirate Booty Peace Tank with the Monrow Military Trench to go with the cut-off. The femininity of the tank is off-set by the masculine look of the trench—together making an outfit worthy of a Jessica Alba street-style look. Add a CC Design Tassel Necklace and you’re ready for a sidewalk runway!

Come check out our other styles at Rapunzel’s Closet and become your own style icon! We’ll see you soon!

AG Jeans Hailey Ex-Boyfriend Cutoff in 15-year wash-$187.00
Jen’s Pirate Booty Peace Tank: $154.00
Monrow Military Trench: $220.00
CC Design Tassel Necklace – Black: $110.00

Steal This Look ~ Gingham Style

24 Apr

Steal This Look: Gingham Style

blogGingham fabric is reminiscent of the retro, preppy styles of the sixties and seventies. The short shorts, tied-up tops, and penny loafers were as American as baseball and apple pie, and they are making a come-back right here in Palm Beach’s Rapunzel’s Closet.

We draw our inspiration from this vintage shot of three lovely ladies on what appears to be a girly day trip. The “sportiness” of the outfit we created is ideal for any outdoor activities that you’ve got planned. The light fabrics promise to beat the heat and humidity of the summer months.
blog

When wearing a printed bottom, particularly shorties like these Benson Seersucker Shorts, you want to keep the top relatively basic. We chose the Crop Mesh Top by Michael Stars to offset the print on bottom, and added a little color with a Love Quotes Scarf, a decorative accessory during the day, and useful shoulder wrap for later on.

Finish off the outfit with your favorite pair of Tkees and you’re ready for a beach-side picnic. Just don’t forget the sunscreen!

Benson Seersucker Short in Light Blue: $98.00
Michael Stars Crop Mesh Top: $64.00
Love Quotes Scarf  in Aquavit: $88.00
