In early June, I took a 9 day vacation to Cabo, Mexico! It was the beautiful paradise I remembered from my childhood and I had the best time with my family. Since I came back (already almost a month ago!!), I think I have still been living in that vacation mode. Seriously, I just unpacked my suitcase last week. I’ve got that relaxed, lazy vibe thing going on and I can’t quite shake it. Maybe it’s because it’s summer and I am reminiscing about the days spent sleeping in until noon, driving to the beach with the windows down, and staying up all night with my friends. It’s so easy to crave those simple times when you’re working 8-5 in the summer. But then I think how lucky I am to be able to travel and experience new things I couldn’t when I was younger. I couldn’t afford a 9 day vacation to Cabo when I was in high school (and the fun wardrobe to go along with it). I could barely afford to go to the movies with my friends on Friday night.
I guess the moral of all my ramblings is sure this is only my second summer of being a true adult in the adult world and of course I can’t help but miss those summer nights. But in reality, I wouldn’t trade where I am for anything. I am at the point in my life where I can do the things I want and I don’t have to ask permission or apologize for them. It is liberating and free and isn’t that what the summer feeling is all about anyway?
I am going to have a full recap of my Cabo trip on Chic Serendipity early next week but I am so excited to share this fun little back-less number. Like how freakin cute is this?! And the backdrop, don’t even get me started! We stayed at the most gorgeous hotel, The Grand Mayan, for a few days and it was unbelievable waking up to this view. Can I move there like yesterday?! Unfortunately I bought this little dress at a super cute boutique so I can’t link to it, but I found a few other swoon worthy back-less pieces below.
Thanks so much for being on this journey with me & I hope you can relate in some small way to my new life in the adult world.
