It started as a daydream–turquoise waves washing up onto white sandy beaches, bottomless strawberry pina coladas and then nothingness, just doing and worrying about absolutely nothingness. That serene daydream escalated quite quickly into an obsession. Within days of muttering (singing) the words Cabo San Lucas, I was saving my pennies, scouring resorts on Tripadvisor and planning a month’s worth of Mexican themed vacation outfits. I was in need of some major R&R…and more importantly, shopping for it.
Visions of laying out and swim-up-bar boozing were not the only things I became infatuated with. Kevin quickly pointed out that everything in my shopping bag(s) were embroidered. I was to become a modern day Piñata in heels. When in Rome, babe!
When planning a Mexican vacation, the ceviche shouldn’t be the only thing authentic. When else do you get to have this much fun with what you wear? If it was embroidered, adorned with pom-poms, off the shoulder or had a donkey on it, I was determined to make it mine! Arrrriba!
