Long live the 90s

CROP TOP (similar here, here and here),BAGGY JEANS, SANDALS, BELT BAG: (c/o) eBay

What’s (sorta) new?

And just like that we’re back to the ‘90s…

Mhm, (hit us) baby one more time!

I mean who didn’t love watching Friends or jamming out to the theme of Fresh Prince (yes, I know all the words to the song in case you’re wondering). Remember when Spice Girls took over? And MTV? Let’s not forget Queen Selena, too.

Wow, talk about memory lane. It’s hard not to get nostalgic without a nod back to ‘90s fashion, too. Are you already thinking Clueless or Sex and the City? Samesies.

Crazy for Cuixmala

BLOUSE, HAT: Zara (Check out Ulla Johnson, Petersyn and Equipment for similar styles)/SHORTS: Nice Martin (sold out, more options from the brand here)/BELT, SANDALS: Maje (sandals are sold out, but Sam Edelman has a similar pair here)

What do remote locations in Mexico, exotic wildlife and Vogue all have in common? Cuixmala (my dream birthday destination this year)!

Not only has it been featured in Vogue (twice), most recently in the May 2018 issue (and many other notable publications), but it’s been a property – hotel – I’ve been dreaming of visiting ever since!

Pantene Charcoal Collection

DRESS: Marks & Spencer/EARRINGS: Shashi/SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER: (c/o) Pantene

Popping in for a brief moment from all the sunning and relaxing at Cuixmala!

Even when I’m traveling (especially then) or in between running my blog, managing day-to-day activities and soaking up the inevitable sunshine from my latest tropical travels and home… it’s no secret that my hair will require some needed cleansing. So, I always like being prepared with the best. What’s my mane trick?

Gorgeous Moorings

JUMPSUIT: sold out, more from Faithfull the Brand here/SANDALS: (c/o) Sezane/NECKLACE: Shashi

As you may have seen, I’ve been traveling nonstop lately. While I love being able to travel abroad (next stop: back to Mexico!), one thing I truly enjoy doing is getting to really know a city near me. It’s easy to forget that South Florida is a paradise destination – so why not explore the hidden gems that are waiting to be found right here?

THINK: a sanctuary of swaying palms, 18 secluded Bahamian style bungalows (without having to go to the Bahamas!) all connected to a sparkling shoreline. Now imagine, hammocks throughout the entire property – to encourage and welcome your most relaxed self. Right? A piece of heaven or what I’d like to call The Moorings Village in Islamorada, Florida Keys. Let’s explore…

Wild for the Amazon

ONE-PIECE SWIMSUIT: Solid & Striped (bikini style here)/EARRINGS: vintage

As you have it, my latest adventure with the amazing LIKEtoKNOW.it family landed us right in the heart of Brazil aka the Amazon Rainforest. (Like what?!) A place that has always been on my bucket list since learning about its importance to our daily lives – I just never knew it would all happen so soon…

Sunny, for a Second

CAMI, PANTS, SANDALS, FLOPPY HAT, EARRINGS: (c/o) River
Island

Ah, that time of year where summering around is “officially” welcomed. Sure living in S. Florida is summertime year round but lately, the past few weeks have been a toss up of rolling thunder and rain. Talk about a complete contrast.

At last, the sun is finding her way back to us. Knock on wood, hope I’m not speaking too soon. (UPDATE: as I hit publish, the rain came back. Ugh.)

In response to the brief moments of sunshine, I could not help but quickly gravitate towards one of my favorite fast-fashion UK brands – River Island. If you’re not familiar with River Island from some of my previous blog posts (click here and here) – think: fun, on-trend and always new with styles fitting for me and you. *sings song*

Island Time

LINEN TEE, PANTS, SANDALS, NECKLACE, EARRINGS, RINGSSUNNIES, CLUTCH: (c/o) Ann Taylor

Wow. It’s been a hot (literally) second. #hellosummer

I can’t believe my last outfit entry on the blog was like nearly two weeks ago. That’s unheard of for me! But between traveling, shooting (so many great looks on the way!) and casually swimming with STINGRAYS AND NURSE SHARKS (say what?), I’ve barely found time to sleep much less carve out a moment to write. So here we go.

Summer-Style

[Chelsae Anne | Photographer]

CROP TOP: (c/o) Shopbop – more options here/PANTS, HAT: (c/o) Ann Taylor/SANDALS: (c/o) Banana Republic/EARRINGS: J.Crew/BAG: Zara – more options here

Is it hot in South Florida or what?! Sometimes, when it’s this hot outside, all I want to wear is a cotton t-shirt with cutoff shorts. But since that’s not always an option (think: lunch dates), I decided to feature this look – which, in my opinion, is a slight step up to a causal summer-style look.
