PLUS, THE BEST SWIMSUITS AND MAXI DRESSES FOR THIS SUMMER SEASON
Holy crap. Finally posting this travel photo diary! Back in December, Potsy and I went to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic to ring in the New Year. I fully planned on recapping this trip as soon as I returned, but then veered off course and decided to take a blogging hiatus. So here it is!
The weather was perfect and only rained once: coincidentally when the clock hit about 12:03 AM on January 1st. The resort had a casino (black jack is my hidden talent) and a consequently delicious drink to keep you betting until sunrise: an espresso martini. I was up with an alarmingly fast heartbeat at 4am and that was the last of them. Made some vacation-friends and drank so many freaking coco locos, I was peeing nothing but rum. We swam with dolphins and went mudding in four-wheelers around the island. Our resort was a little touristy, something Potsy and I aren't used to, but it was relaxing and breathtaking and I managed to leave without a sunburn. Keep scrolling to see some photos from the trip!
I wanted to share this trip with you now to ignite inspiration for new pieces to add to your summer wardrobe and share with you my picks from what the internet has to offer. To me, the epitome of summer is a flashy swimsuit and a cascading maxi dress. Lately, I've been little jaded on the traditional triangle bikini, so instead I sought out flirty silhouettes and alluring one-piece options. In addition to maxi dress options, I threw in a jumpsuit or two for some flavor. Gingham, palm tree prints, bold contrasts, metal embellishes, coquettish, unassuming, and always on trend--shop your new summer favorites below!
