Sunshine, sunshine it's fine, I feel it in my skin, warming up my mind - Cancun, Mexico

Forever 21 top, Plenty by Tracy Reese pleated silk skirt, Abercrombie & Fitch sandals

Light airy outfits are the best for humid weather (took these when we were in Cancun). I love the beading detail and sheer gauzy material of the top, plus the gorgeous folds and pleats of the skirt remind me of the Caribbean ocean and how the waves roll and crash into the shore. Probably one of the most therapeutic sounds on earth. Anyway, I must say for how infrequently I visit A&F ("infrequently" aka never. Last time was over half a decade ago when I bought these leather flip flops, they've held up well) I do always crutch on these simple, yet not quite as casual as foam rubber flippies, leather sandals come summertime.

  13. The beading work is a nice touch for summer. Perhaps incorporate some into your hair?

    On another note, I'm definitely jealous of the backdrop here.. use it to your full advantage. Enjoy the rest of your trip!
