I made a colossal mistake during our recent trip to Mexico. Guilty of last-minute packing, in my haste, I miscalculated the number of outfits I would be needing and lets just say there was a lot of repetition during our 5 day stay. The irony is – I always overpack! This dress from White Plum Boutique came to my rescue in those desperate times. I wore it as a tunic on day 2 for an excursion trip, as a cover-up on day 3 over my Victoria’s Secret bikini and as a shift dress for a musical show we went to, on the last day. I’d defintely recommend having such versatile pieces in your closet. On the same note – I also wore the mister’s chambray shirt as a cover-up on one day while lounging by the pool – and it was by far my favorite outfit on our trip. I had to give myself a little pat on the back for concocting such ideas of dressing up from my limited luggage =))
Have a great week ahead !

I don’t have enough good things to say about the resort we stayed at – everything from the surroundings, ambience and service were beyond amazing. There was a non-stop intake of guacamole and pretty sure I’ve had my yearly quota (make that 2) of alcohol =)) Early morning pilates on the beach & Zumba in a gazebo standing at the center of the pool – now that’s surreal. However, the highlight of our trip was us winning an air-rifle shooting competiton at the resort (beginner’s luck – heehaw ) Dear Riviera Maya, after enjoying your beauty and soaking in all the warm calmness for 5 days, its getting difficult to wait to come back!
I feel guilty about taking relaxing vacations! Call me crazy – I am so addicted to the daily craziness of life – that the thought of relaxing makes me nervous. Yeah.. but that’s about it! Then when I reach our vacation destination, all that guilt goes out of the window and I indulge in nothing but pure dolce niente – the simple pleasure of doing absolutely nothing. We arrived in Mexico on Friday and I have been so excited since that I could burst (or could it be due to all that be all that pinacoloda and guacamole I have been pumping in? ) We are staying at the Excellence Riveria and it feels like nirvana. The mister really outdid himself with the reservations – we have a room with a private jacuzzi on the patio – overlooking the beach – and a hammock. I always wanted to nap in a hammock you know.
I wore this outfit for lunch at the grill restaurant on the beach. If anyone thinks that there is a limit to how much one can eat – we will gladly prove them wrong =)) I always have a hard time finding maxi dresses that I like, but when I saw this one at Sammy Dresses – I had to snag it. Its is so flowy, I couldn’t help myself from dancing in the sea breeze. This bag has been proving quite useful on our trip. Its perfect as a beach bag and will work as a great travel bag as well. Its pretty spacious and I was sold at the vibrant colors. Guess what – you can win this one or any other for that matter =)) Enter the giveaway through the rafflecopter below & let me know which bag from the Sparrow handbag collection meets your fancy.
