Fancy Wednesday

It’s summer and vacation planning is in full effect!  With vacation planning comes vacation outfit planning (of course) and no vacation outfit is complete without the endlessly functional cross-body! Cross body purses are a chic and efficient method of carrying around all your travel essentials such as wallet, camera, phone and make up!  While browsing for the perfect cross body I came across the two Diane Von Furstenberg beauties you see below and boy are they what’s currently tickling my fancy!




Wedding Bells Ring in Playa Del Carmen

There are few things that bring me more joy than traveling, but the before and after of traveling is always a nightmare.  Getting back into the groove of reality and catching up on all the missed duties at home and work is tough (hence the delay in posting this blog about my trip). Well, enough about my first world problems….

I recently had the joy and honor of traveling to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico to attend the wedding of my two wonderful friends Michael and Amanda n/k/a “The Mestres.” My lover boy and I along with about 20 other of our close friends stayed at the all-inclusive RIU Palace Resort.  I had never been on a trip with so many of my close friends and all staying in the same resort.  The result was pure bliss and complete madness…Let’s just say it was a trip none of us will ever forget.

The actual wedding ceremony and reception took place at the majestic archeological park Xcaret, which is basically the main attraction and a “must see” location when visiting the Riviera Maya.  Xcaret is absolutely breathtaking and I have been fortunate enough to attend (now) two weddings at this magnificent venue.  I had such an amazing time at the wedding reception that I completely slacked on taking enough pictures of the grandiose cave with surrounding underwater rivers that the reception took place in.  However, being the major foodie I am, I did not fail to snap pics of the exquisite meal served consisting of a mouth-watering  tuna tar tar appetizer, Mar y Tierra entrée and two varieties of desserts.

The days following the wedding were filled with Sun, Fun and of course Fashion… Lol!  Check out the pics of the Fun in the Sun and of course, what I wore.
