Belize 2014

IMG_3480-2

Hi friends! As you read this i’m finishing up a whirlwind 6 day trip to Belize with my best girlfriend. We make a habit of taking one crazy trip together every year. Past trips have included raging in clubs in the Dominican Republic & exploring abandoned cafes in Jamaica (to name a few). This year we knew we wanted to have a great mix of beach and adventure and decided on Belize. A largely island country, Belize is known for it’s crystal blue waters and great people. One of the major attractions we wanted to be sure to see was the Blue Hole (pictured above). A natural phenomenon formed some 150,000 years ago, it is an advanced diving destination in the Caribbean Sea. Neither of us are divers so we settled for hopping in a 3-seat propeller plane to take a peak.

Gorgeous crystal blue waters were breathtaking during our 1.5 hour flight. An adventure to say the least!

We spent the majority of our time on two islands: Ambergris and Caulker and loved both. The former is the largest of the inhabited islands with beautiful resorts and luxurious restaurants. Caulker had a more chill, laid back vibe. Both, however, were so colorful and vibrant.

The girlfriend I traveled with happened to have come straight from a 4 week long yoga teacher training in Costa Rica, so I couldn’t help but snap a few images of her during a session on an abandoned dock. We’ve been doing quite a bit of yoga during our time here.

We’ve been on SO MANY adventures together. She is the truest definition of a best friend. I’m so, so lucky.

River Island Mono Polka Dot Cami Dress

ASOS Dot Cami Dress, Club Monaco belt, Sam Edelman sandals (similar), Andrew Marc jacket (in brown), Louis Vuitton mirrored handbag

As you’re reading this i’m lounging on a beach in Belize with my best girlfriend from college. We’re sipping cocktails, catching up on each other’s lives and enjoying being still. Part of the fun of these kinds of vacations is the preparing. Shopping for the perfect evening outfits is half of the battle for me, so when I came across this River Island dress on ASOS I immediately had visions of wearing it with heels to dinner, and over a bathing suit on the beach.

I love the ease and freedom of a tank dress with the added interest of contrasting patterns. When paired with a leather jacket it instantly becomes work appropriate.

As you can see the back of the dress has a gorgeous criss cross pattern. This is something i’ll love in Belize but was hidden by my jacket for work.

Gentle Souls Break My Heart Sandal

Joules vest, J.Crew shirt, J.Crew Pixie pant, Louis Vuitton handbag, Ray-Ban sunglasses, Gentle Souls sandals

Victoria┬árecommended these sandals a few weeks ago, and i’m a bit embarrassed to admit how quickly I clicked over to Zappos to scoop them up. Living in San Francisco I’m always in need of stylish walking shoes, and these fit the bill. The lace up detail provides a bit of extra support while the memory foam soul makes it feel like you’re walking on clouds. You need to own these.
