It’s no secret that Sam and I have caught the travel bug. As we travel to new places we’ve made a point of taking time out of our trips to explore destinations that are completely off the beaten path. On our current trip through Mexico we found ourselves leaving Tulum in search of something untouched by other travelers. We found just what we were looking for in the tiny village of El Cuyo in the Yucatán. The village consists of kind people, brightly colored houses, and crystal clear water that stretches as far as the eye can see. It is places like this that make me feel the most inspired. This inspiration inevitably leads to a renewed desire to shop for something special that fits my new found inspiration.

A great new shopping destination that you must check out is the Trove appI love shopping online as much as the next person, but what I love most about the Trove app is that it gives you the ability to shop looks from real people vs. online models. Trove allows you to follow your favorite style influencers and shop their outfit posts directly from the app. In addition, Trove gives users the ability to see all the new posts quickly and shop their favorite looks instantly. It’s easy, incredibly efficient, and you can even save your favorite looks and products to a personalized closet.  What’s also really cool about the Trove app is that even while I’m sitting on a remote beach in Mexico I can use the trends tab to see what my influencer friends are wearing for New York Fashion Week. Download the app today and start shopping all of your favorite looks.

Happy Valentine’s Day and happy anniversary to the love of my life. To celebrate my and Sam’s special day we decided to treat ourselves to a stay at the breathtaking Azulik Eco Resort and Maya Spa in Tulum. The premise behind the stunning resort is to get  back in touch with nature. The rooms have no electricity, no phones, no TVs, and no Internet. In the evening they light dozens of candles in your room and around the property creating a magical experience. Our stunning room was perched right over the water with a panoramic view of the coastline. Falling asleep in candle light with the ocean roaring and the breathe sweeping through the treehouse style  suite was something we will never forget.  It will be one of our most cherished memories.

Sharing a few pics from my first couple days in Tulum. We stayed at a cute boutique hotel off the main strip spending our time exploring the local restaurants, shops and beaches. Most of Tulum is still in development. I feel lucky to see it now before it transforms into Cabo or Puerto Vallarta.

One of my all time favorite films is Funny Face with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. If you have never seen it I urge you to remedy this sad situation immediately. The film is full of beautiful fashion, scenery, and Audrey’s iconic dance in the middle of a smoke filled Parisian cafe. It also features the “Think Pink” song performed by Kay Thompson who’s character was based on the one and only Diana Vreeland. Astaire’s character was modeled after the famed fashion photographer Richard Avedon. The movie is a gem. If you can get past the uncomfortable pairing of a 58 year old Astaire as the love interest of a 27 year old Hepburn, you’re in for a treat.

When I picked this dress up it instantly made me think of the film, the song, and how much I truly love the color pink. I can’t help it. Just like I can’t help loving 70’s rock bands, tattoos, Metallica, and Wes Anderson films. I probably couldn’t name you a Taylor Swift song, but I can name all of the pantone variations of pink. Being feminine or girly doesn’t mean you don’t have the depth to be more than that. Those who meet me in real life are generally surprised to learn that I am just as likely to be prancing in a flower field as I am listening to Master of Puppets while drinking Negra Modelo.

Fun Fact : If you look back far enough I’m pretty sure you’ll find a post from my college years wearing one of my heavy metal tees with a Tecate tall boy in hand. In those days blogging was like the Wild West. I kind of miss it.

Palm Springs and the surrounding desert cities are my favorite escapes. If you’ve been a reader of this blog for any amount of time, chances are you’ve seen dozens of my desert posts. Here is another one. We shot these at our favorite hotel, L’Horizon Hotel and Spa. It’s beautiful, calm, and dog friendly. We always bring our furry squad, spending our time enjoying the pool, lounging in hammocks and watching breathtaking sunsets.

Maxi dresses are my favorite for these desert road trips. They’re the best for hopping out of the car when you see something picture perfect. And when the wind catches the them just right, the sun glitters through the sheer lining, you can create magic. This desert shoot is still one of my favorites.
