Hola! I’m back from Cancun with a solid tan and a serious need for a detox. I drank one too many margaritas and ate one too many orders of guacamole (it was just so damn good).

The 5 days I spent in Mexico with my friend Bailey were fun, relaxing, and full of laughs and long tequila-enhanced chats on the beach. It was incredibly hot the entire time we were there which made for fun nighttime looks with no need for a scarf or jacket.

Before I left, Calypso St. Barth’s had me in for a visit in their Upper East Side store to pick out a few pieces (Did I mention that I love being a blogger?). I chose an ethereal silk white and navy dress (seen here) and this incredible hot pink statement skirt.

I knew right away that it had to be paired with a crop top. I tried a white version first but the black was far more dramatic. Adding the turquoise necklace was just icing on the cake. This might be one of my favorite outfits of all time. People literally kept staring at me in the hotel and telling me that they loved it. I consider that a fashion win!

Big news: Calypso is having a big 25% off spring sale this week and Lemon Stripes readers (plus Calypso Facebook fans) get EXCLUSIVE access to shop the sale a day early starting on Wednesday. Woop Woop! Use the code SPRINGFF14 at check out. I’m sorry in advance for all the over-spending you’ll be doing. It’s worth it, I promise.

A special thank you to Lidia for taking these amazing photos. We had such a fun photo shoot at my hotel while I was there.
