Puerto Rico

Hello! Last week, my family and I jetted off to Puerto Rico for a relaxing week spent lounging on the beach, taking in the sun and forgetting our worries. I snapped plenty of photos on the trip and wanted to share a few of my favorite outfit photos with you all. My aesthetic for the week was beach-y, retro free spirit. I relied on bold cat-eye sunglasses and lipstick to keep me stylish while there, ditching my hair products and eye makeup for ease. 


I snatched these floral adorned cat-eye sunglasses from my sister's wardrobe a couple weeks ago and I haven't wanted to take them off since. I love the feminine, 1950's feeling that they have to them. 


Just peachy! For this look, I slipped on a tropical floral printed dress. Breezy printed dresses were my go-to while in Puerto Rico as they were the easiest, stylish option. Besides the fact that they didn't take up much room in my suitcase! I styled this dress with a pair of flatforms, golden bracelets, a peachy tote bag, red lipstick and retro sunglasses.

Colorful, textured walls and mod architecture fill Puerto Rico with a carefree, tropical feeling that reminded me of what 1950's/1960's California and Hawaii would have been like. This unique landscape of cheery structures was one of my favorite things about Puerto Rico. I couldn't help snapping plenty of photos against the vibrant walls like the one above.

The details of this look make it my favorite look of the week; all the details effortlessly complement each other perfectly (swooning over the way the flowers on the sunglasses highlight the floral print of the romper!) Additionally, I can't help but love how the combination of soft colors and statement pieces creates a retro, feminine feeling. 


Yes, yes and yes to the flared sleeves and vibrant print of this dress. I styled a pair of navy wedges, golden bracelets and a pair of bold red shades with this look to create a statement. Shout-out to the wall by the condo we were staying at for accentuating my outfit perfectly!


I've been lusting after American Apparel's collection of swimsuits for seemingly ever now so I decided to go ahead and purchase one before my trip to Puerto Rico considering I would be spending over half the week in just my bathing suit. And I think this may be by far the most flattering swimsuit that I have ever owned. Even better yet, I scooped it up for half off for only $25!



  1. Looks like a wonderful time! Beautiful vacation looks and both your bathing suits are wonderful. The picture of the first one is very amazing and wow!! And the one piece is super sexy!! The sheer part in the middle is so exciting on gorgeous you. Wow again :) xoxo
