not a worry in the world

This is the life. Literally. It honestly takes a vacation to put my whole life into perspective... I should really go away more often to beautiful, tropical, beach-filled places. Mexico is a balmy 30 degrees and drops down to a chilly 24 at night. I'm not going to lie, I am going to be ridiculously sad to have to wear pants and a jacket in Vancouver again instead of just a sundress and sandals. The weather is warm, the people are friendly, the drinks are perfect and the food is delicious. I am obsessed with the salsa, I don't understand how they make it taste so good here. Fresh and filling, with just the right amount of spice. I've been having such a fun time, and staying so busy. The only reason why I have time to blog is because Meagan and I turned in a bit early for the night after a little too much sun, pina coladas and chicken fajitas. This outfit was worn on a trip into town, and note to self: silk may seem like a good idea, but it's not. This Club Monaco beauty is one of my favourite blouses in the world, but in the hot sun it definitely looks prettier than it feels. I styled it with my new Chanel-inspired sunnies which are so much fun. I hope everyone has been having a fabulous week. Hola from Mexico!

    p.s. Speaking of Club Monaco, I partnered with them to give away their very lovely Pamera pleated midi skirt. Would love for you to swing by and enter (it ends May 12, so hopefully you don't miss it!)
