Guest Post: {av} from {long distance loving}

To wrap up my week of guest blog posters (which sadly means that my vacation is!), I got the lovely {av} from {long distance loving} to come by and visit you all! I have been following {av} since way back in the day when I, myself, was in a long distance relationship. Lucky for me, those days have passed, and I'm in a much better dating situation (with the guy who I am currently beach-bumming with!), but I still love to see all of the fun things that {av} posts about on her blog. If you haven't, go check her page out, and link up for Friday's Fancies!!
I need to get back to soaking up my last full day of the beach and all of its glory!
See you, my bloggie friends, on Monday!
Love, Jenn

A very happy Friday to each of you! My name is {av} and I'm the blogger behind {long distance loving}. Every Friday, I host a link-up called Friday's Fancies. Jenn has been a loyal linker for almost a year now, so I'm thrilled to fill in for her while she's enjoying a tropical getaway in Jamaica :) Here's a little peek at a fun beachy get-up, perfect for a day by the ocean!
1) I couldn't get enough of this Rag & Bone Simple Tote--the pop of orange propels this canvas tote to another level!
2) Though this cover-up is a little "louder" than I would normally wear, I knew this W Swimwear Tie Dye Tunic was a winner. Regardless of the style of suit underneath, there wouldn't be any weird neckline issues--you know exactly what I mean ;)
3) A dash of gold makes these Kate Spade Felix Cork Wedge Sandals the ultimate choice for any beach vacation! They are versatile and vibrant, all at the same time.
4) Another bold burst of orange, this Saha Warmer Waters Bikini would be a brilliant addition to any Jamaican jaunt.
5) These Oliver Peoples Kosslyn Cat-Eye Sunglasses evoke a bygone era--without being old and boring. I would positively love to have these sunnies in my rotation!
6) With an elegant twist, this Soo Ihn Kim Jinx Cuff is a fun finishing touch to this cheery ensemble.

And don't forget: no beach getaway is complete without sunscreen! Be sun savvy when you're enjoying the sunshine--and have many fewer wrinkles down the line!
Jenn: soak up every minute of your vacation!
The rest of you: enjoy your weekend!
