Wednesday Wants


One of my close girlfriends and I are headed to Tulum for a long weekend getaway at the end of the month and it is all. I. can. think. about. I’ve been burning the candle at both ends {both ends meaning work and blog – nothing too exciting, haha} and just need a little break. On my first trip to Tulum {this past October} I overpacked. I brought wedge sandals, makeup, too much stuff. This time around will be different. One pair of flat sandals, a couple of bikinis, some coverups… that’s really all you need. No need to bring any makeup except maybe a tinted lip balm and waterproof mascara – if that. It’s such a magical, amazing place… I can’t wait to go back. Fresh juice, sand, sun, and yoga… here we come!

From top left: Joie Top // Gold and Gray Necklace // Chan Luu Necklace // Joie Dress // J.Crew Shorts // J.Crew Bikini // Cuyana Robe // J.Crew Tote // Old Navy Straw Hat {comes in big sizes – yay!} // Madewell Sandals

PS – Shopbop just added a bunch of Spring Markdowns… just sayin’….

    SO jealous of your trip. Although I can definitely see why you need a vacation – I don’t know how you do it all!

    Love this set, especially the robe and sunhat. Now back to our 20 degree temperatures….

    Oh this trip sounds sooo nice! I also tend to overpack way too much, but I’m realizing now that less is more in this case too :) I love this necklace and robe, I would totally wear them on a relaxing sunny getaway.

      The first time I went, I stayed at the Coqui Coqui! This time around we are staying at the Papaya Playa Project. I’ve also heard amazing things about Amansala, Ana y Jose, BE Tulum, and Casa Violeta.

    Tulum is on my bucket list! Cannot wait to see photos. We have a Cabo trip planned for May and I may add a few items to my packing list!

    so jealous – that sounds like the perfect trip to get away and escape this blah winter weather too. nice packing list too- can’t believe that sun hat is from old navy!!

    A getaway sounds amazing. I can’t even explain how over winter and cold weather I am!

    How about a DIY inspired by that necklace? I love it but I am on a tight budget this spring! You haven’t done any jewelry in a while…..

      I’m sure it wouldn’t be that hard! I haven’t had time to craft lately – but will try! It’s def DIY-able!

    I second that grace! Please DIY that pink tassel necklace (atleast so I can pretend I’m heading to the beach or somewhere warm!!)
