Pants / Top / Bag
Two piece set review: I love this set because I was able to wear the pants with other pieces I brought along on the trip. My not so favorite thing is the top piece, but nothing an alteration couldn't fix. The pants are the best thing ever to own for a spring/summer wardrobe.
When I'm picking out my wardrobe for a new destination I like to geo-tag search the area I'm going to vacation in, and get an idea of what the place is like. Once I've researched the area and have an idea of what colors go well against the landscape for my aesthetic, then I'll start shopping for pieces within this color range.
Mexico is covered with sand and white concrete walls, with hints of eye popping accents. With this in mind I knew that neutral earth tones would be the best option. I opted for a few pastel colors and nudes for this trip.
Dress / Belt / Sunnglasses
Wearing a size Small in this dress and a size 65 in the Gucci belt.
Review: I'm just going to have to tell you that you could always use a good t-shirt dress because it transitions well from a beach wrap into a dinner dress.
Hat & Dress
Wearing a size Small
Review: I need to alter it to fit tighter on the top for my body size. This dress would look fabulous off the rack on someone with a fuller chest than me and if you're curvaceous it will make you look slim because of the belt attached.
Dress / Hat / Sunglasses
Wearing a size Small
Dress Review: I'm obsessed! I can grab this dress on the go if I'm rushing out the door and slide on a pair of sandals and be good.
Yellow Bikini Top / Bikini Bottom
My size: XS Top & Small Bottoms.
Review on this yellow bikini: I love the fit for my B cup boobies for sure. The bikini tops I find in this style typically don't come with adjustable straps, but this one does and it makes a huge difference. Thumbs Up!
Black Bikini Top / Bikini Bottom
Wearing size Small top & Small bottom
Review: I'm in love with the fact that I can wear this bikini top with a pair of pants and look appropriate walking around after a beach day.
Stripe Bikini Top / Bikini Bottom
Wearing size XS top & XS bottoms.
Review: The bottoms cinch a lot tighter around my hips than I want. This top is a favorite because it's nothing similar to what I currently own.
Blue Bikini Top / Bikini Bottom
Wearing a size XS top & XS botttoms.
Review: Perfect beach bikini and a flattering fit and color.
(On Sale) One Piece / Hat / Linen Shirt
Wearing a size Small one piece swimsuit and a size 4 linen shirt.
Review: Everything you could want in a fun laid back one piece is in this one.
Wearing size Small
This is the end of all my looks from Mexico. I really hope these outfits inspire you for all your summer adventures.
Time to relax after the storm. Today was one of those days I felt like binge eating and chilling in my downtown apartment. Great news my friend Kim is going to Texas to cover a story on the hurricane disaster and promote ways you can help those that have suffered the disaster. As we were having lunch at a local food joint call COMMUNE in Norfolk, VA we talked for hours about our goals and were we see ourselves like 10 years from now. It was a really nice day to go for a walk and we showed up to the restaurant a little too early where we found ourselves walking around downtown for an hour up and down the street, exploring record stores that were closing down with great sales.
I love records and it's probably a part of my classic soul that it interests me to listen to. After peeking into shops it was time to grub and chub!
You probably want to know more about this dress, and what I think about it. I like this dress a lot but it is heavy on the material and the shoulders have a little puff to them like super miniature invisible shoulder pads, but you can't tell.
