Los Angeles, CA
It's likely that by the time you read this, I will be off on a journey to a land far far away, filled with adventure, mermaids, treasure, sunshine and sand! Ok so before you think I’m headed to Dead Man’s Island Skull Kingdom (I googled that name. It may or may not be real) or some other obscure island in the Caribbean inhabited by pirates, I should let you know that where I’m actually headed is Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. While this resort-filled getaway may not quite be the dastardly, daring, dangerous hideout on the high seas that I imagine conquering with Johnny Depp in my dreams, in reality it’s exactly the type of getaway I’m looking for. All I need to do is remember not to drink the water!
Only a hop skip and a jump away from Los Angeles, Cabo is all kinds of wonderful… or so I hear. To be honest, this is the first tropical vacation I’ve been on since my heyday of yearly family trips pre-college. Since then, I’ve used almost all of my vacation time to fly back east. So you see, I wasn’t really exaggerating too much before. This tropical trip will be one of exploring a whole new place – a modern-day adventure to be sure!
The look I’m sporting is inspired by travel and comfort. I love these floral shorts that I found at H&M while waiting in the check-out line the other day, and how great are the backpacks from Forever21 right now? I love being able to throw things in a backpack while on the go, and they have so many adorable options at the moment. It's loco! (check out the use of my Spanish lingo there). I’m telling you guys, take advantage of their back-to-school bags… who cares if you’re not a student anymore. Oh and the silver bracelet I have on is my medical alert bracelet. I forgot to take it off for the photos but hey Mum at least you have proof that I’m wearing it!
Adios for now!
