Melissa's Sweet Style: Jersey Shore Escape

Jersey Shore Escape

Happy almost Friday!!!! 

I've been so out of the loop!  I left to Atlantic City to celebrate the hubby's birthday on Sunday and I forgot my cell phone!!!!  Call the troops!!!!  I didn't even know what to do with myself without a phone for 4 days!  Let's just say......I survived!!  Our trip to AC was fun but the weather SUCKED!  I left here on Sunday with the sun shining and I never saw it again.  The hubby and I were not lucky.......all whammies!  Even though we didn't hit the jackpot we had a great time.  We weren't able to visit the boardwalk for 2 reasons.....we didn't stay very close to the boardwalk, and the weather was horrible.  This outfit is what I wore on Sunday afternoon before we left.


 

Top: Marshalls
Jeans: F21
Sandals: Kohls
Necklace: Mandees

I got these sandals at Kohls last summer for my destination wedding in October and I'm so excited to be wearing them.  I got them early summer and only wore them one time.  Love the bling, bling!  I will take a better pic next time I wear them.


I didn't do many outfit changes in AC, we were there from Sunday-Tuesday and we pretty much kept it low key.  I wish the weather would have been nicer to us.   Here are a few pic's of my trip. 

Cardigan: NY & Company
Turquoise & white tank: Mossimo (Target)

This cardigan was my weekend lifesaver!  The casino's are always freezing and I'm always underdressed.  I must have worn it all 3 days....no lie!  LOL!

   
We had happy hour at The Charter House while visiting The Golden Nugget Casino.  These fried plantain chips were beyond!  I can't even tell you how delicious they are.....you MUST try them!  We also had the prime rib sliders, calamari, and fire cracker shrimp! 
At the Harrah's Resort we visited Bill's Burgers.....AMAZING!  I had their "shrimp burger" and it was YUMMO!  Of course I'm still getting used to this whole blog and taking pic's of everything, so I was already 3 bites in when the hubby says..."you didn't take a pic for your blog"......ooops!  LOL!  Take my word for it, the shrimp burger at Bill's is; oh so good!  On our last day there we went to McCormick and Schmicks seafood restaurant.  I had fried shrimp and the hubby had linguine and clams.  The  hubby and I are total foodies! 



This was THEE best drink (strawberry basil caipirinha)!!!! Of course the hubby loves his beer!

Here I am with the birthday boy!  Such a cutie! 

Hope you like the pics!

xoxo
