BEST OF 2016

 

Does anyone else feel like you blinked and 2016 has come and gone? I know for many (me included), this was a year filled with some extreme highs and a few low, lows. Honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. We started our year in the mountains and ended the year on the beach. These bookend trips really rounded out my love for this year. Be sure to scroll for a few of my favorite highlights from this year.

STRIPES ON THE BEACH

When I was planning for Mackenzie and I’s girls trip to the Caribbean a few weeks ago I naturally headed to my go-to for new arrivals, Shopbop.  I came across this adorable Mara Hoffman outfit and texted a picture to Mackenzie saying we both needed this outfit.  Funny enough, a package arrived at her door the same day with the same exact outfit. Great minds, think alike.

We knew we were only going to have a few hours in St. Barth’s, so a little research beforehand paid off.  We hopped off the boat and headed straight to Baie De Saint Jean.  We grabbed an iced coffee and croissant from a cute little café called, Kiki-e-Mo and then headed down to the beach for a little sunshine.  We ended up lounging at Nikki beach (we heard this place gets pretty rowdy at night- the French know how to party) and then had a quick bite and some rosé at The Sand Bar before we hopped back on the boat.

I think we are all in agreement, we will be booking a trip back to St. Barth’s very soon!

FEET FIRST

“She loved the ocean because every time the waves left the shore, they always came back.”-unknown

As I laid in the sand with the waves crashing at my feet, a slew of memories rushed in. I don’t know if it was the sounds of the water or the sun shining down on my skin but I felt at peace. My anxiety washed away with each passing wave and I allowed my mind to wander. So many thoughts came to the surface. Thoughts about my goals, my relationship and where I see my life in the next 10 years. For the first time in a while, I allowed my mind to wander to creative places and found new inspiration. I know it is not just me, but I get so caught up in my daily routine that I don’t allow myself to fully let go. So as I sat there in the sand watching each wave leave the shore, I let those little things go, and made room in my life for something new.

We had the best day on Saint-Jean beach in St. Barth’s. Stay tuned for later this week, I will be sharing a guide to 5 hours on the island. Everyone had to drag me back onto the boat. I could have stayed on that island forever. I wore my new Marysia bikini the entire day with a high waisted maxi skirt and sandals. To say I am obsessed with my new suit would be an understatement.  I have been lusting over Marysia’s designs for over 2 years now and I finally decided this girls trip was the perfect time to pick it up. I contemplated on getting this one piece, but Mackenzie talked me into the bikini with a quote from her Grandy- “You have your entire life to wear a one-piece, wear a bikini while you can.” She really is a genius.

CARIBBEAN…HERE WE COME

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.

Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@adashofdetails) and Snapchat to see behind the scenes shenanigans from our trip.
