Sadly we have returned from the Dominican Republic and find ourselves immersed in work and cold weather. As a little recap I have decided to write today about our journey!
Airport style, although we all wish to be celebrities in some small recess of our brains, most of us wish to be comfortable and stylish with our airport style. No stilettos, no confining corsets, because hours on a plane should be comfortable. Below you see Sarah in her maxi skirt and vintage t-shirt while Em chose linen pants and layers. Leaving from a cold destination she was able to shed the lightweight cardigan and thin silk over shirt for a sleeveless tank top and those all important flip flops that were packed in her carry-on!
Next let’s talk carry-ons! Although Em and S made it safely to the DR with all of their luggage, some of our family did not. So it’s ultra important to pack a few essentials in your carry on. For the Islands I packed flip flops, a bathing suit, a maxi dress to throw on over it all, any medications necessary including Excedrin, Advil, and Benedryl. And then the toiletries that are hard to live without – toothbrush, deodorant, and sunscreen!
In the islands, we love to be fashionable. So here are a few images from our travels!
From bathing suits to dancing with the locals on the boat, we tried to carry our stylish ways to the islands, just like we do from home. Sadly we had to leave the beauty of the islands and return to usher in spring at home.
So as we lavish in the fond memories from our trip, we are reminded that days in paradise are so much nicer when earned by handwork at home!
And it’s always good to come home!
xoxo – Em
