Best souvenir from a trip: this adorable dress purchased in the Mexico airport. I took my kids to Cancun in January, and spotted this fuchsia, embroidered gem as we were rushing to catch the plane home. I was determined to leave Mexico with some handmade local threads. This lil shift did not disappoint. It's the perfect easy dress for Spring. What's cool about this styling of it is that the belt I planned on wearing with it broke, so I improvised by cinching the waist with a rolled up scarf. I'm patting myself on the back for this one👏🏻. Thankfully I had a complimentary hot pink silk scarf with me! I had thought I'd put in on my head, so it truly was in my bag. A dangly turquoise earring completed the look. 1,2,3 for real. This was such a sweet look for walking around downtown Miami on my recent Passover trip.
I took these photos with Aziz, a great photographer I met through Air BNB. It was a well priced way to get good vacation pics. I really recommend it, whether you're alone or with friends/fam. Treat yourself to beautifully captured trip memories; why not? I did these for the blog and IG, and there was a nice guy from Bulgaria who was doing it too. He was excited to be in America for the first time and wanted nice pics. Good for him. It was also a cool way to meet interesting people from different walks of life. When I think about how much money I spent on the expensive designer embroidered peasant top I bought a couple years ago, I want to kick myself. For a fraction of that price I bought the real deal of a dress that's authentic. Much better way to go! Always keep your eyes open while you travel. There are fantastic finds that are wearable mementos. It feels so good to wear souvenirs that don't involve Mickey ears😅.
