Tulum

Tulum, Mexico. Within the past year, it has seemed to be the talk of the town. The picture perfect beaches, the warm waters, and the exotic resorts. It is also quite the yoga town (although I wouldn’t consider my unathletic self the yoga type…)

As I had a craving for adventure and a brand new passport to fill the pages of, Tulum popped up as the perfect destination to relax and breathe.

The closest airport is Cancun, and from there it’s about a 90 minute drive to the town of Tulum.

Things I loved:

Riding a bike down the one main street of Tulum. Pretty much the entire town can be seen from one main street that spans from the south to the north of the city. Stop and look at some of the shops (there were so many with huge macrame hangings), restaurants, and resorts!

The beautiful resorts that have beachfront views with daybeds and restaurants. Time will stand still as you soak in its untouched beauty.

There are beach clubs whose soul purpose is for you to lay on the chairs and beds while ordering a drink (or two). They make sure their water and the sands are in tip-top condition cleaning out any seaweed that may make its way to their beaches.

The people! Everyone was so friendly and nice. It was so awesome how diverse the crowd was and how everyone becomes friends. There were people from Germany, America, and other countries all within a small proximity.

And as a true foodie, I must say that the all-inclusive life is THE life! I greatly enjoyed the never-ending food, room service, and drinks!

I would definitely recommend staying for more than 2 days, as it is quite the distance being a drive away from the airport. And yes, already wanting to go back and explore more of the town.

boho summer

Hello loves!

With fall fashion sneaking back up on us and making its yearly appearance, I can’t help but notice all the plaid and boots popping up everywhere. Although my closet mostly consists of summer apparel (because, let’s face it.. I am definitely a California girl),  there is something special about cozy knit sweaters and all the fall accessories that have a place in my heart. Hey, I’m all for the pumpkin spice lattes (#basic), and booties, and scarves and… okay I think you get the point.

However, I will use every opportune time to wear my boho dresses from Shop Bella Blu  before the weather forces me to put them away. Here are a few staples that can easily be dressed up/down. Throw a oversized plaid shirt on top and you have successfully transitioned to fall! 🙂

The lace detailing on this dress are my favorite part, and put a whole new spin on LBD. I’ve definitely already paired both a plaid and a denim vest over it, but sometimes simple is best.

My favorite dress out of them all is this neutral gray fringe back dress. It just screams me with the detail in the back and the color that just goes with everything. It’s so versatile and I am in loooooove with the fringey back!

All dresses were paired with my favorite shoes of the summer which was less than $35 which you can find here. The lace-up shoe trend seems to be everywhere I turn! But I’m sure we are all wondering..where have they been all our lives?! 🙂

Til next time..
