Mexico: Pom Pom Straw Tote

I just returned from a trip to Cancun, Mexico with my Mom, and we had a blast! My trip was cut one day short due to a big snow storm in New York, but we had perfect weather the entire time. I brought a few different “Mexico inspired” looks to shoot, but we were having so much fun that we only made it around to shooting this one. I paired this black pleated Swiss-dot popover dress with this fun pom pom straw tote bag (a trend I am still loving from last year), which was perfect as a beach bag, too. I got complements on this tote from everyone from the pilot and flight attendants on my plane, to couples sitting next to us poolside. I like the bright cheerful colors and also how fun and whimsical it is. I kept the look easy breezy with classic gold-rimmed aviator sunglasses.

I highly recommend visiting Cancun if you have never been. There are gorgeous Mayan ruins to explore, and beautiful deep swimming holes called cenotes to jump in. I would go back any time.

Thanks to my Mom for taking my pictures!

Yellow Ruffled Swiss Dot Midi-Dress

I picked up this yellow ruffled swiss-dot midi dress (midi dresses- trend alert!) at H&M in June, and I brought it to Europe with me. I love the length of it, the soft dots, the baby yellow, and the feminine ruffles. It was perfect for exploring town, and the beautiful lookout points in Lagos. I remember it was so HOT this day! I paired the look with my favorite boater hat (trend alert) and clear-framed mirrored sunnies. I purchased the straw woven beach bag in town.

Take me back!
