Today's Everyday Fashion: One Year In The Making


Posting this today feels like letting out a breath I've been holding for close to a year!! Because after buying this outfit last summer, our trip was canceled twice (once due to a passport fiasco, once because of hurricanes), and I kept it aside until we made it to Havana last week. Let me tell you, it was worth the wait!! It looks like it was tailor-made for this beautiful city. We didn't have to look far for the perfect backdrop - all of these photos were taken within just a few short blocks of each other. And I'm not sure what was more festive: my outfit, my feelings, or my surroundings. It was truly one of those afternoons where the outfit makes your day even more fun. (Btw, this kind of outfit fun is for absolutely everybody. Vacation photos are forever, and I can't recommend wearing the good china and having fun with your clothes while traveling enough!) This will forever be my Havana outfit and I loved every minute of it!
