I would definitely consider myself a bag lover- I just have such a soft spot for a beautiful new purse. Three of my favorites for summer are the cross-body bag, the backpack and the classic satchel. I use my cross-body bags most often since they’re best for getting around the city, carrying grocery bags, etc. but the satchel will always be my number one. I still have yet to buy a backpack, but this one or this one are at the top of my list.

A big thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.

Embellished Jacket

Calypso St. Barth Jacket (similar here) , Express Top c/o, Rag & Bone Shorts (currently on sale), Marni Sandals, Oliver Peoples Sunglasses c/o, Balenciaga Bag

I wore this Calypso jacket a lot throughout  our trip to Dallas and Cabo. I snagged it up right before we left and I’m so glad I did because it’s now sold out online (I found a similar version at ASOS here). One of my favorite moments from our trip was horseback riding on the beach at sunset. The RewardStyle team (who we went to Mexico with) gave everyone flower crowns right before we hopped on our horses and it made us all look like fairies! I know shorts are definitely not the most practical thing to wear, but I had no idea we would be horseback riding (it was a surprise) so it was either shorts or a dress… ;) It was a magical moment and something I’ll never forget.

Lace Romper

Dolce Vita Romper, Calypso St. Barth Sweater, Chloe Bag, Illesteva Sunglasses, Free People Hat (old, similar here), Marni Sandals, Bracelets by Samantha Wills & C. Wonder

One of our afternoons in Cabo was spent at the incredibly cool El Ganzo Hotel. They had the most amazing murals, paintings and details (I posted this one and this one on my instagram) all around the property. It was filled with color and creative touches and even had see-through hot tub by the gorgeous pool area! I wore this Dolce Vita romper that was so comfy and the perfect swimsuit coverup (I’m wearing this Mara Hoffman swimsuit underneath). I’m already missing those lazy days spent by the beach, napping in a hammock and eating endless amounts of chips and guac!
