Cancun Vacation Outfits

Wednesday, May 4, 2016


DOLLARAMA PANAMA HAT (SIMILAR)  |  URBAN PLANET ROMPER -- OLD (SIMILAR)  |  BIKINI TOP  |  GLADIATOR SANDALS (SIMILAR)  |  SUNGLASSES (SIMILAR)

Today I'm sharing all the outfits I wore in Cancun while on vacation a couple weeks ago.  I definitely love to pack colourfully for vacation, which is a change to my usual neutrals at home.  While I'm a fairly strategic packer, this time around, there wasn't much time so it was a lot of throwing things into the suitcase without much planning.  Needless to say, while I did pack a little much, I never ran out of clothes #optimisticspin

Hope you enjoy the recap of what I wore--I'm sharing links to everything that's still available plus options to similar items so you can scoop them if you'd like.  As always, thanks for reading!

Knit Flared Pants & Suede Wrap Choker Necklace

Tuesday, May 3, 2016


O U T F I T  D E E T S :  SWEATER  |  KNIT FLARES - ON SALE!  |  IRO HEELS (SIMILAR)  |  FAUX SUEDE CHOKER NECKLACE  |  BAG - COLOUR SOLD OUT (LESS EXPENSIVE)

Now that the warmer weather is here, including dry streets, it's time to break out the flared pants!  I have been wearing these indoors since getting them while I was in Tampa, back in January (haul video here), but I'm so excited to finally bring them outside.  Knit flared pants are really like the ultimate chic-girl pant: stylish and comfy all in one.

I love the idea of pairing them with a soft sweater, but they would also work with your favourite tee and denim jacket or a contrasting, stiffer fabric, like this blouse.  If you remember the grey pair I picked up last Fall, I have paired those with a duster cardigan and also a grey top for a more streamlined look.  Since the fabric is soft and casual, you want to keep it elevated with accessories and heels--less pyjama, more street style. 



Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, May 2, 2016

Happy Monday ladies!  Sorry for the slight delay in the snaps, I was helping a friend unpack her new home last night, got home late and then Game of Thrones (!!!)--need I say more?

Onto the snaps...



We tend to eat out quite a bit, making time to cook hasn't been a strong suit of late, but after indulging in Mexico for a week, I was determined to get back on the clean eating train.  That said, we agreed if we ate healthy week, we'd get a special dinner on Friday! 

We got Thai take-out, and while this isn't my personal fave (it's totally Marco's though!), I especially enjoyed this time--perhaps one too many chicken + salad combos all week.

Cancun Photo Diary

Friday, April 29, 2016



We spent last week in Cancun for a full on vacation.  It's the first vacation we've taken as a couple since Italy, this time last year.  It was well needed, and we had a really nice time.  

We stayed at the Grand Moon Palace, and had beautiful weather all week.  The beaches and pools were beautiful, the drinks were great and we spent an entire afternoon playing beach volleyball one day.  We weren't overly thrilled with the food at the resort, hence the lack of food shots, but still fortunate to get away and enjoy some sunshine.

I'll be sharing all my vacation outfits in a separate post with all the details, but for this, I'll let the photos speak for themselves...




Maxi Cover Up & Panama Hat

Tuesday, April 26, 2016


O U T F I T  D E E T S :  PANAMA HAT (SIMILAR)  |  MAXI DRESS  |  BIKINI TOP  |  CHOKER (TIED IN THE BACK)  |  FLIP FLOPS  |  VINTAGE BEACH TOTE (SIMILAR, SIMILAR, LOVE THIS)

Before heading to Mexico, I spent a full evening shopping for a few new items.  I wanted to bring some new pieces with me to wear on our trip and I left almost empty handed--almost as if when you're ready to treat yo' self, you find nothing!  However, I did find this maxi dress and did a little dance when it was long enough.  

I paired the dress over my suit one day but it would be really pretty for evening with a wide bandeau underneath in white, yellow or mint.  I also love how this choker looks wrapped around multiple times and tied in the back--another great way to wear one of Spring's trends I'm loving.
