We did run into a road bump while there when it came to taking photos -- the humidity! I've never experienced such intense humidity before and apparently the camera hadn't either. This was our first day running into it and we discovered that the camera actually needed a good amount of time to adjust outside (especially near the ocean) before it would defog. So, after this day we knew to prepare ahead of time and give ourselves a little more time. The humidity also made it impossible to wear any makeup, so I was makeup free pretty much the entire trip. Quite liberating really!
I purchased this dress during the sales before leaving for our trip. It is exactly what I pictured for a Mexican getaway. Free People is seriously the best when it comes to boho and the loose fit was so perfect for a hot day. Dresses like this are so necessary for looking cute when you feel anything but. It's nice to know you can just throw it on and you're all set -- no effort required.
