Resort Living

 Well, we're back in Vancouver after a super relaxing week in gorgeous Mexico. It's always so hard to come back after a holiday like this -- especially when we were so spoiled while there.
Our resort was unbelievably gorgeous and the weather couldn't have been any better. It was our first time visiting an all-inclusive and although we aren't sure if it is our personal cup of tea, we definitely took advantage and let the ease of the holiday take over.  I've never stayed in such a gorgeous suite before and having our own pool was definitely the cherry on top. Nothing beats waking up in the morning and jumping in the pool to wake yourself up.

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.

I was wearing:

Sass & Bide Sunglasses

Thanks so much for visiting!

  3. There is a Free People boutique opening at Park Royal, dear Alison...I'm over the moon!! And was it camera fog that gave your pictures here such a lovely, dreamlike quality?! 'Cause if it was, I think I want a dash of humidity for all my upcoming photo-shoots!! Your little embroidered white dress was made for a resort holiday, and I'm sure it will bring back all kinds of lovely memories every time you wear it again!!


Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments and support!
