We were up bright and early when the boat docked on St. Thomas. Mackenzie and I were pretty excited about our excursion for the day: swimming with dolphins. Naturally, we had to grab a few ice coffees before hoping off the boat (a necessary stop after a few too many glasses of rosé the night before). Swimming with dolphins has always been on my bucket list, so you can imagine my excitement when Mackenzie told me we were hoping on a small boat to check it off my list. I have to say, it exceeded my expectations. The dolphins were so smart and friendly and the entire time I was in the water, I looked like a kid in a candy store.
When packing for this trip, I knew I had to bring my Rag and Bone romper I scooped up at Intermix last year during my surprise birthday trip to West Palm Beach. Thankfully for you guys, it is still available at a few stores and I am thinking about getting the marigold color too because I wore this one all summer long. The silk and classic silhouette make it so easy to throw on but still look put together.

When Mackenzie invited me to go on a 8-day Caribbean cruise, I jumped at the chance for a little R&R and to soak up a little sunshine. Our first stop was a private island near the Bahamas. We spent the day playing in the water, reading magazines and sipping margaritas. It was the perfect kick off to our event-filled vacation.
You may have seen my packing list last week, but if you missed it, my carry-on was full of white pieces that I could mix and match. There is something so casual and cool about an all white ensemble. Lately, I have been especially obsessed with off the shoulder tops (I brought three…excessive? I think not). I scooped up this one on sale right before I left. I love how it is a little structured, so it can be worn casual with shorts or in a dressier setting tucked into a skirt. Another thing I could not live without on this trip was my Mar y Sol Beach bag. It made for the perfect travel companion and was the perfect size for a towel, magazines and the rest of my beach essentials.

As your reading this I am currently sitting on the beach (drink in hand, obviously) and enjoying the sandy beach in the Bahamas. I will be spending the week in the Caribbean with Mackenzie for a girls trip! We will be soaking up the sun, swimming with dolphins and boating to St. Barth’s. My goal for this trip was to pack for eight days in my new carry on suitcase and it was a complete success.
