Yellow Maxi Dress

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

You say beach I say bright and flowy...and that is exactly what I took on this trip with me. Carlos and I and some dear friends just got back from spending some time in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. It was my birthday trip and a much-needed mini-vacation for all of us.

When I started planning outfits for the trip I knew I had to bring a maxi dress or two, they are super comfortable and perfect for dinner. I was initially set on this silky one from Shop Bop but upon searching on Forever 21 I found this yellow one and fell in love with the intricate back and front ruffles. With that price difference from my original choice it was a no-brainer!

I paired it with flat gold sandals, soft earrings and my favorite beaded Anthopologie clutch. Oh and don't mind my extra accessory {that bright wrist band}. We decided to try an all-inclusive resort and spa so I had to wear it all day everyday. 

In the next few days I will be sharing some of the outfits I wore during our trip and general advice for packing for a beachy destination.

  2. Ok first, wow! You look amazing! I've been looking for a beautiful dress like that one. The back may be hard to pull off for me because I have to wear a bra no matter what (big-chest problems!) Do you like Playa Del Carmen? I've been finding Groupons for that beach a lot lately!
