Sailing like it’s Summertime

The highlight of our trip to Jamaica was undoubtedly one that took place far out at sea. We departed from the Montego Bay Yacht Club, only to find out that it was the same one that Prince Charles and Camilla departed from in ’08. While it was fun to learn that, the highlight was to follow. We got suited up in flippers and goggles, jumped in the turquoise water and swam to the reef. When I put my face to the water and caught my first glimpse of what lived beneath, I was completely blown away. It was the dreamiest, most surreal experience. There was a massive school of Sergeant Majors, lots of gorgeous coral, and we even saw a Barracuda. I was too excited to be nervous, call me naive. After a while, we got back in The Lark and sailed for hours on a warm breezy day. This my friends, was definitely the highlight of our trip for both of us. And if you ever find yourself in Jamaica, I couldn’t recommend Barrett Adventures more highly.

Flora

How darling is this little mint skirt by Frill clothing? With the pleats and the loops of the bow, the top of it seems to almost have floral elements to it. The structure of the fabric is folded in an elegant and feminine way, similar to the petals of a flower. Every where I turned in Jamaica, I was ooh-ing and ahh-ing another gorgeous flower. Delicate and easy, they fluttered in the gentle breeze. Confident and unified, their shape withstood the same wind. I find the little things positively enrapturing, like many elements of nature as you may already know or if you’re new around here and continue to follow along, will most surely come to know. So more than stop and smell the roses, I stopped and smelled them, ooh-ed and ahh-ed them, and of course, photographed them.

Anchored to Adventure




This one’s going to be short and sweet, loves. As I only have a few minutes before my eyes quit this long blinking thing and actually close for a good night’s sleep. It’s getting late and I’m exhausted from a day of doing basically nothing. Isn’t that how it goes? The days of utter relaxation in the sun are the ones in which you are just absolutely beat at the end of the day? Well let me tell you, it’s been a nice change of pace from our otherwise quite-busy lives. I wish you could see this place in real life. I wish you all could be here with me (seriously how fun?!). St. James Secrets Resort here in Jamaica has been totally great and the scenery is phenomenal. There’s nothing like an open beach to bring out the frolic and dreamer in you. The ocean truly does inspire me and ground me all at the same time. It’s comforting and astounding, mysterious and inviting. It blows my mind every time like the first time and I just adore it. So I’m spending every minute I can with it this week. 




This unique nautical dress is from mudpie gift. They have a lot of really neat stuff. Check it out, you may just find a new favorite!

Pink Silk

 

Hello from Jamaica! After 2 days of 80 degree weather, powder-soft sand on the toes and natural eye candy all around, yours truly is already feeling rejuvenated and inspired. Patrick and I are enjoying a lovely week so far and are looking forward to the rest of our trip. Considering taking one of these palm trees home with me. Oh and the ocean. That’s cool right?

Beachy Keen

Looking at these makes me almost cry a little bit out of sheer desire to be back on this beach. Oh my word this vacation was absolute divinity. Admittedly so, it’s easy to feel like a million bucks when all you’ve got planned is a day at the beach sipping smoothies. But it’s Monday. And though Monday gets a bad rap, I argue that it brings with it a few positives aside from its more notorious blotches. Namely… a nice fresh start. A clean slate to launch into an excellent week. Also, a bit of momentum. We’re all rested up from the weekend, so there could be a little more zing in our step. For some of us, that zing doesn’t kick into gear til 3-7 cups of coffee/tea, but hey, who’s judging?! So beach vaca, I loved you, but I’m bout ready to take this Minneapolis Monday by storm!
