Was it a week ago? Two weeks ago? One month ago? I don’t know, can’t remember. Time seems like a blur lately (but in a good way) so please excuse me for not knowing!

As I slipped into my bathing suit in Cartagena, I realized I didn’t bring a cover-up with me so I grabbed a midi skirt and ran downstairs to meet Chelsea, my photographer, for breakfast and a quick photoshoot. Only to realize that my outfit was pretty cute! “Who would have thought a bathing suit could double as a top?” I thought. Chelsea encouraged me to shoot the swimsuit (with the midi skirt). The pictures came out great! I loved it so much, I decided to post it to IG and the response was fantastic.

Which left me dreaming up the many possibilities of swimsuits…

Le sigh… one of the most beautiful spots I found at GoldenEye in Jamaica was this rooftop ledge overlooking the mountains. In the early morning, mist would rise to the top, birds would sing while ocean waves would gently kiss the coastline. Sunrises are my favorite time of the day and I promise you they’re even better in Jamaica! If only I could travel back in time and go back to this very spot – with a cup of fresh Jamaican coffee. Today I’m unpacking, doing laundry and re-packing (yes, re-packing) my very tired suitcase in a pair of leggings that haven’t seen a gym in years and a college t-shirt – with a cup of bland coffee…

So Beachy Mon

BIKINI TOP, BIKINI BOTTOMS (sold out): (c/o) Vitamin A, in partnership with Zappos

Hey Mon!

I was in Jamaica, in case you didn’t notice, staying at the most insane luxury eco-resort called GoldenEye. Yes, the same GoldenEye as the James Bond movie.  Ian Fleming, author behind all the James Bond novels, famously used this place as his retreat. Today it’s a hub for writers, artists, creatives or anyone seeking R&R. Safe to say, I was officially on Jamaican time, and although a struggle at first (to be 5 minutes late to everything, that is) I fully adopted to the amazing mindset of, “relax… everything little thing will be alright” by the end of my time there.

In Your (Pant) Dreams

TOP, CROP PANTS, CARGO PANTS, SANDALS, SCARF (more options here), STRAW BAG: (c/o) Ann Taylor

You ask, you receive!

One of my most commonly asked question is about… drumroll: PANTS!

Don’t ask me why but I get so many questions about where I buy my pants but I do. All the time. Understandably so, right? I mean, pants are comfy. They can trick people into thinking you’re tall. They’re super easy to style. I get it. So that’s why I’ve dedicated today’s post to… drumroll: PANTS!

A Bathing Suit Beauty

WEARING: L*SPACE bikini top, bikini bottom (Sponsored by Zappos)

Earth to Stephanie!

I just got back from Casa Pombo in beautiful Cartagena, Colombia… Although old and historic, I fell in love with the hotel’s character and charm. Between spiral staircases, tiny doors fit for a hobbit and the little ledge I had to jump over to get to my room every night (sans heels), I feel grateful to call this “work.”

Reporting live from Cartagena, Colombia! I’ve been dying to visit this beautiful city for years… I cannot tell you how happy I am right now to be here. (Pretty sure I said the same thing in Mexico!)

Mérida, Mérida!

(scroll down to the end of the post for outfit details!)

Let’s jump right in, shall we?

Q: Where’s Mérida located?

Mérida is the vibrant capital of the Mexican state of Yucatan. It’s rich in history and colonial heritage and has year-round sunshine. It’s a three-hour drive west from Cancun, is charming and authentic, with a growing artistic bohemian community. There you’ll find streets lined with huge, colonial villas. Colorful buildings with ornate, wrought-iron railings, big windows and grand doorways!

Q: How did you hear about this city?

Don’t laugh but…

100% MINERAL INVINCIBLE SETTING POWDER: (c/o) Supergoop! via Sephora

Swim Week, July 2017. I’m in Miami Beach and the temperature outside is easily 98 degrees with 100% humidity. Forgot looking cute. I was happy to look “dewy” not sweaty. I run into my old friend Katie from NYC who says, “how do wear makeup in this heat?!” as she takes out a blotting paper to save whatever makeup is left on her skin. My reply, “setting powders; that’s my secret…”
