Riviera Maya

It's been a while since we got back from Mexico... and I miss it! It was such a fun family trip. One of the nights we were there we went to some sort of shopping thing (aka tourist trap). I bought this shirt because I was obsessing over the fact that I couldn't leave Mexico without one. (I did, I might add, successfully bargain the price down significantly... in Spanish!)

Ironically, almost exactly a year ago, I posted about wanting to buy one of these peasant blouses from Anthropologie. I'm happy to say I definitely did not spend $170 on this one... and it's more authentic. (Although I'm fairly certain they get the blouses made in China anyway...)

So now that I have the shirt and summer is officially approaching, I'm trying to decide how to wear it!!! I think it will be perfect for a coverup when I'm at the beach. But what do we think... is this something I can pull off on a regular day?


Also, I definitely do not have a photographer boyfriend... so I'm stuck with awkward mirror pictures :-)

Let me know your thoughts in a comment!!!

Speaking of Mexico... Stephanie Johnson sent me the cutest iPad sleeve. Fittingly, the print of the fabric is called Riviera Maya... which is exactly where we stayed in Mexico! Now whenever I travel with my iPad, I'll be reminded of the great trip.


How fantastic are those details? Oh, I think it's downright beautiful!


The iPad fits perfectly inside. And the little bead on the zipper is too cute.

  2. Personally I like how you styled it with jeans. Casual and cute yet pulled together. I went to the Riviera Maya for spring break this year too! We stayed at the Iberostar... You are making me miss the beach!

  3. Wow I looked back at the other entry and it's amazing how similar the Anthro shirt is to the one you got! I think you can pull it off as an everyday look because it's a relaxed and casual look for the summer.

  4. I was in Mexico during the same exact break as you and I was also in Riviera Maya. I also did the same activity: snorkeling in cennotes and then ziplining, and to top it all off I have the same exact shirt as you LITERALLY... wow

  11. I think it looks great both ways you styled it, though I like it with blue jeans and sandals most. And I hear that about the mirror pics; wouldn't it be nice to have a photographer friend with lots of free time?!

  14. I really like the top with the red jeans! I think you could also transition it into an outfit with cute shorts too. I love the ipad case, great bright colors!

  15. I think that it would look super cute with capris or even rolling either of those pants up.
    Even with wedges and a body contour skirt!
