Act like summer and walk like rain – Cancun, Mexico

Forever 21 straw hat
J.Crew sheer button up
Zara pants
Juicy Couture sandals
Banana Republic fringe suede bag

This was shot at the entryway to one of the restaurants on the beach at our resort in Cancun. I love resort wear, mostly because it means vacation but also for the carefree yet put together easy breezy look. Bought the mint linen button up in a large so it’d be loose and rolled up the sleeves for a casual feel. Wanted the outfit to have clean colors and add color pops with bright accessories, like bright yellow earrings and coral sandals. Really don’t like Juicy Couture but couldn’t walk away (no pun intended) from the awesome ankle-pompoms, moccasin-in-sandal-form, suede fringe combo.

    I have that same top! Love that you paired it with red sandals.

    Doesn't that top get super crinkly? I have to iron/steam the crap out of it whenever I want to wear it!
