DRESS: Alexis (c/o) Shopbop/EARRINGS: Kenneth Jay Lane (c/o) Shopbop

Hola from Mérida, Mexico!

Today I’m reporting live from the most beautiful Airbnb I’ve ever seen. (Yes, I promise to disclose the location at the end of my trip! Please hang tight!) You have NO idea how excited I am to finally be here. I’ve been dying to explore this colorful Yucatan town for years but have never had the proper resources to do it (you know, share epic outfits + bring my photographer and boyfriend with me). So last month, I finally pulled the trigger (cue: last month’s creative plateau) in hopes of a new destination spurring inspiration. AND IT’S WORKING!

Because so far every corner I turn, I see something new and beautiful. Whether it be the people of Mérida who are nothing but friendly and kind or ex-Pats who have countless stories of packing up + leaving the States forever to run a bed and breakfast, I’m in love and cannot wait to see where this trip takes me… we have lots on the agenda!

Oh, and yes – I know what you’re wondering, is this town safe? Yes! It’s super safe. In fact, it’s ranked the safest city in Mexico and to some, the world. No joke. Look it up!

Anyways, on to today’s amazing look from Alexis a la Shopbop!

Like wow. This dress. When I think of Mexico, I think of vibrant lively colors, late nights dancing with mi amor, warm weather and toes in the pool… which is the exact feeling this dress gave me when it arrived in the mail from Shopbop. (Note, it runs big!)

Earrings and sandals are all this dress needs…

Ciao! Check back tomorrow for more!

Xo, Stephanie
