Last month we were lucky enough to go on a nine-day honeymoon in Mexico. I’ve posted plenty of pictures of what I wore while we were there and thought it was time to share some recommendations of where to stay if you’re planning a similar trip.
We spent our first five days in Riviera Maya, which is about 45 minutes south of Cancun and 15 minutes north of Playa del Carmen. We didn’t really know much about the area… Jeff had been to Cancun years ago and I’d been to Cozumel and Tulum on a cruise, but aside from that we were going in blind. We ended up finding our Resort, The Blue Diamond, on Jetsetter and were so impressed! continue reading
This past weekend I convinced Jeff to take me to our favorite hotel, The Parker, out in Palm Springs. We love Palm Springs, but there’s something so magical about The Parker and when you’re there you can’t help but feel like you’re in a secret garden on someone’s estate. It’s also special because it’s where Jeff proposed last August, exactly where these photos were taken.
I’ve been loving the off the shoulder trend this summer with tops and dresses. The watermelon color on this one caught my eye immediately. I knew I had to pair it with my flamingo rehearsal dinner shoes and added the citron bag for a fun pop. continue reading
I spent the weekend in Palm Springs, I hadn’t been in a couple years but it was just as wonderful as I remembered. We rented a house to stay at but it got me thinking of my favorite hotels in the area. Because it’s only about an hour and a half away I’ve gone at least a dozen times over the years and have narrowed down my top three choices for the best hotels.
In no particular order…
Ace hotels always have a cool vibe. They’re equal parts hipster and vintage and really make you feel like you’ve just discovered uncharted territory. This particular location really takes you back with it’s vintage mid-century decor. It keeps things pretty simple and embraces the raw beauty of the area. The pool area is a fun and relaxed party with dj’s spinning tracks you wouldn’t hear at a Vegas club. I also love that it’s pet friendly! continue reading
