You know that one item in your closet that you rarely wear but refuse to give up?
For me it’s this open back watercolour maxi dress. I’ve had it for a few years now but have only worn it a handful of times. Once to a ballet (where I still felt overdressed because I live in Lululemonville), once for a fancy dinner at home just because, and last week in the Riviera Maya of Mexico. You’ve got to wear a dreamy maxi during sunset on the beach at least once in your life.
I’m not doing a travel diary for Mexico because we went to an all inclusive resort. Our vacation was literally eat, beach, sleep, repeat. Except for a kayak ride in the Caribbean where I learned that I’d be doomed if I were ever to get lost at sea. Normally I prefer exploring-type vacations. The kind where you walk around and discover your destination until your feet feel like they’re about to fall off. But sometimes it’s nice to escape reality and get an amazing tan. Really nice.
We did cheesy things like drink pina coladas, go for romantic walks on the beach, and eat guacamole and nachos for lunch every day. The vacation felt way longer than it actually was, and I think that’s due to our excessive beach bumming. Time flies when you stay busy, so chilling all day everyday for four days made it seem like eight.
We also shot almost every day, except for day 1 when we took a red-eye flight induced nap instead. I really love how the photos turned out, but with such a gorgeous backdrop it wasn’t hard to get good shots. Hope you enjoy this first installment and the rest of the photos to come!
