Indian Diaries Pt. 3: Q&A

DRESS: (c/o) Gal Meets Glam/SANDALS: similar here/EARRINGS: Zara, more options here/BANGLES: from Indian market

As I mentioned on Instagram a few weeks ago, I’ve received a ton of questions ranging from India to what lens I use from how I pack to what app I use for my IG Stories, so I thought, “let’s get to it…all of it on the blog today!”

But before I dive in, please know I am not an expert on India nor do I know all the answers or fully understand the creative bursts that make up the wonderment of this culture. I am just happy to highlight + share with you some personal tips from my own experience in India. I hope there’s something you can take away from it, too!

Cartagena Pt. 2: Q&A

DRESS: Zara (more options here)/EARRINGS: Mercedes Salazar/TOTE

IT’S BEEN A MINUTE.

Like, woah. I know, I know. It’s taken me months to share this post. Blame it on the travels.

In case you missed it, I shared a blog post on where to shoot in Cartagena in March because I received SO many questions about it! (I also published a post about where I stayed in Cartagena here.) Today I’m answering some of your commonly asked questions like best places to eat, shop and stay.

Breath of Fresh Air

DRESS: here/SANDALS: love these!/BAG: affordable options here and here/EARRINGS: similar here, here and here

I can’t tell you how refreshing it feels to stay in one spot for more than two weeks at a time! I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with my boyfriend, get (somewhat) organized again and mentally decompress from packing – unpacking – packing – unpacking. Although I’m leaving again this week for another destination, it won’t be far from home. Just three hours south! Yep, you guessed it. I’m headed to the Keys…

Alright, Alright, All-White

SWEATER, PANTS, SANDALS, EARRINGS, SUNGLASSES: (c/o) Ann Taylor

I’m back. From jet lag that is.

Last week, I mentioned in “Indian Diaries Pt. 1” how going to India was not only spur of the moment but a huge investment for me. (Quite frankly, all my trips are a huge investment for me!) But if there’s one thing I’ve figured out it’s this: you can’t put a price tag on memories. I’ll dive deeper into this subject + more from my trip to India later so please hang tight! In the meantime, leave your questions in the comment section and I’ll try to answer them in Pt. 2.

So today I’m taking a quick break from India content to share this outfit from Ann Taylor. Sure, it’s another all-white ensemble but I figured with Memorial Day right around the corner, that you would appreciate it!

Indian Diaries: Pt. 1

DRESS: (c/o) Johanna Ortiz/SANDALS: Topshop

I’ll admit it. When Chelsae Anne (my photographer) asked me to join her + her crew in India during their month-long journey throughout Asia, I said “Chels, you’re crazy…” Only to take a step back and realize this was an opportunity of lifetime. Exhausted from traveling nearly every week the past two months, I put on my big girl pants, called my travel agent while I was in Mexico with my boyfriend and said, “book the ticket.” I didn’t check my bank account. I didn’t think twice about flying halfway across the world by myself. I simply thought, “go.” So, I sourced outfits for what would be one of the most gorgeous places I’ve ever shot at and a week later, found myself en-route to mystical India…

An Espadrille Escape

BLOUSE: (c/o) ParkerNY/SKIRT: (c/o) Lovely Pepa Collection/EARRINGS: (sold out) more options here/BAG: Indego Africa

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!
