In One-Piece


Romper: BCBG
Belt: H&M
Hat: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: Birkenstock
Watch: Michael Kors

  Guess who's back? Well, after spending ten days in the beautiful (and snow-less) Caribbean islands, I have finally arrived back home to the bitter cold and snowy weather. I’m not going to lie, stepping off the plane and seeing the snow made me almost shed a tear. It’s always really hard to leave vacation, but it’s especially hard when you have bad weather awaiting you at home. In addition, I also left my jacket in my suitcase, so you can imagine me running through a snowy parking lot in a short sleeve T-shirt. If you looked up “struggle” in the dictionary, returning home would be there.

     On Friday afternoon we flew in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The following morning we spent the day walking around and enjoying the palm trees and beautiful scenery of the island. One thing I noticed right away is how colorful everything in the Caribbean is.  The homes and businesses are pastel greens, bright yellows and blues, and even pinks were popular colors. A lot of the places we walked by had extravagant fences or gates circling the perimeter of their houses. While walking around we came across this home that had a beautiful tree with flowers growing off of it in their front yard. It was the perfect place to shoot.

      For the first day of the trip I decided on this romper from BCBG. I love one-pieces in the summer time, and think they’re really fun to dress up with accessories. The romper was a light material which ensured I didn’t sweat to death in the heat. I added a belt around the waist to make the outfit less plain and added a hat to keep the sun from burning my face. Of course, I threw on my favorite Birkenstock sandals. They’re extremely comfortable to walk around in and I actually came across several other women wearing them as well.

I’m really excited to relive all of the memories from the previous week right here on this blog for the next few posts. I’ll be posting my Outfit of the Day’s from the entire vacation. We visited five Caribbean islands and I’ll be telling you guys fun stories about the trip a week long. We did some crazy things I can’t wait to share with you.

What’s your favorite piece to wear in the summertime?

  1. This is so gorgeous, I love the nature-infused look of the background! Ah the details are amazing here! And that romper is a great one for touring the lovely island, I would say that and flowy tank+denim shorts would work for me! :) xo~ Lena

    1. The scenery was the most amazing part of the entire trip. I had a hard time focusing when we were shooting because everything around me was so beautiful! The romper was great for walking around. I think a flowy tank and denim shorts would have been my next choice!

  2. Gorgeous shots! Just by the descriptions, it sounds like a lovely getaway! Welcome back to reality, like the rest of us :) I'm looking forward to the rest of your vacation shots. Also, forever jealous of people that can pull of Birkenstocks (that would be you!)

    1. Thank you! We had a really fun time while it lasted. It seems like vacations go by so quickly, almost in the blink of an eye. I'm looking forward to sharing the next outfit posts and stories with you! I love Birkenstocks (I know a lot of people don't) so seeing you say that means a lot, haha!

    1. Haha, I'm back to that weather now though. If you even think of stepping outside without a thick coat and sweater you'll get frostbite. The warm weather was a nice break!

    1. Thank you! It was very nice to break out the Birkenstocks after they've been sitting in my closet for a few months because of the cold weather.

  8. This romper is perfect for a vacation! I went to Jamaica last spring and it was truly beautiful-the palm trees, ocean, scenery, and adventures! I had a great time there and I am supposed to go to Puerto Rico this summer! I will use this look as inspiration for my next trip :)

  17. Lace is my favourite for Summer, although I barely own any of it sadly. I'm working on my wardrobe though! And hats, like yours (which is totally adorable by the way).

    1. I love lace as well! I know what you mean, it's one of those things that is everywhere but I think finding a good quality lace piece can be difficult sometimes. Lace is timeless though, and I personally don't think it will go out of style for a while. Thank you, I have an obsession with these hats!
