Caribbean Vibes



Crop top: Saks Fifth Avenue
Skirt: Urban Outfitters
Shoes / Necklace: H&M
Watch: Michael Kors
Sunglasses: Aldo

     Whenever I look at pictures from St. Maarten, I want to turn on some Caribbean music and start dancing. The people, places, and sights can brighten anyone’s day.  St. Maarten was one of my favorite places that I have ever visited. We walked around for a good few hours this day.  Small boutiques, little cafes, and gelato places lined the stone pathway that hundreds of tourists filled. While walking, you could hear the sounds of men banging on bongos and tourists bartering with locals.

Later in the day, we took a trip down to airport beach. This was my favorite activity of the entire trip.  Airport beach is a beach (go figure!) directly across from the island’s main airport. Planes fly over your head every fifteen minutes, and they come so close you feel like you could touch them. The waves at this beach were incredible, at least ten feet tall. The whole shindig was something amazing to experience.

I decided to go for a light skirt and crop top to match the colorful and fun Caribbean vibe of the island. This was also a great outfit to throw over a swimsuit, which is something I’m always thinking about when I go to the beach. My friend generously braided my hair and then I threw it in a pony tail so it wouldn’t be in my face. I put on my new favorite pair of sandals from H&M. I found these a couple days before the trip, and my jaw dropped. You guys know I have a thing for Birkenstocks and Slides, so I couldn’t believe it when I came across these. I topped this look off with my favorite pair of sunglasses from Aldo.

     So now we have come to the final vacation post. Although I’m sad to be done reliving the memories, I’m so excited for the upcoming posts. It’s back to heavy coats and layers! I’ll be in New York City this weekend covering Couture Fashion Week, Small Boutique Fashion Week, and of course Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

    Are you excited for NYFW? What are you looking forward to most?

  2. Gorgeous photos! And the Caribbean sounds amazing, although I'd be terrified of the planes being that close at first. And I am super ridiculously jealous that you get to cover NYFW and the others. That sounds amazing. I'm looking forward to Zimmerman and Nicole Miller for New York.

  3. I love the tropical feeling of this outfit. I also think the incorporation of slides versus regular flip flops are great! They are so great to style! I am so happy for MBFW...can't wait to see your coverage!

    1. Thank you! I prefer slides over flip flops. They're just as convenient to throw on but much more stylish. I can't wait for you to read it, I have lots to show and tell!

    1. The matching background was completely unplanned, but it worked out perfectly! St. Maarten was definitely up there on the list of the most beautiful Islands I have ever visited. Everything about the island was so upbeat and had a happy vibe to it.
