Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Vacation

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Vacation

This post is a bit delayed but I figured it’s better late than never! If you follow along on Instagram, you might already know we took a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last month. And it was pretty wonderful. It’s somewhere I’ve been going the last 5 or so years ever since my parents bought a condo there. Fun fact, they actually honeymooned in Puerto Vallarta almost 40 years ago, so it’s always been a special place for them. Now, it’s a special place for all of us—my sister and her husband even got married there! 

We feel incredibly grateful to have a wonderful home to stay there but, because of this, I unfortunately don’t have hotel recommendations. However, I’m always happy to try to help in any way I can, so feel free to reach out with any questions in that realm and I’ll do my very best. 

Their building is located in Zona Romantica (the Romantic Zone), which is where we spent mostly all of our vacation. It’s filled with plenty of boutique hotels, art galleries, cafes, global restaurants, cute cobblestone streets, beaches and more.

The majority of this post is dedicated to what I wore but I’m also sharing a list of some of our favorite places to eat, plus things to do and see. I hope you enjoy!

Weekends in my book are all about comfort. Honestly, sometimes I don't even change out of workout wear. And I probably didn't even work out. Just sayin. Typically, I'll throw on a pair of jeans and a baseball cap and call it a day, but I think you're kind of winning when your jeans and baseball cap are actually a little bit presentable. Distressed denim + sweater + baseball cap + leopard oxfords = out the door in the easiest casual weekend look.

This Jcrew cap was from last year, but they still have a similar style, or you can check out some of my current faves below. Leopard print and buffalo plaid?? Swooning.

Hi, loves! I hope you all had an amazing weekend and Thanksgiving. Mine was filled with lots of family time, food, and wine, and I think that's kind of the best way to do any holiday. Needless to say, getting back into the swing of blogging and a normal work week after a weekend full of festivities was a little rough, so I turned to some of my easiest, don't-have-to-think pieces. Faux leather leggings and faux layers. I've become a huge fan of liquid leggings lately and I love how you can throw them on and look instantly put together, but still be completely comfortable. I honestly never expected them to be so comfortable and easy to wear. If you don't have any, check out my picks below and snag yourself a pair!

I also love the ease of just pulling on a unique, statement sweater, if you will. And any that give you that faux layered look without the layers are a necessity in my book. This one from Goodnight Macaroon is super soft and warm, has built in layers, and an added color blocking bonus. I love the subtle sweetness of the chiffon hem paired with the subtle edge of the leggings, and I adore the ease and comfort that liquid leggings and faux layered sweaters give you.

Thanks for reading!

It's really no secret that I happen to love gold. A lot. My go-to method of accessorizing is always gold, and lots of it. I'm always looking for new ways to add touches of gold to any look and this hashtag plate from TAudrey is literally the perfect thing. It's handmade with lots of love and is one of those wear-with-everything, never-want-to-take-it-off pieces. Delicate, but substantial. Sweet, but sophisticated. All in all classic and perfect, and a great piece to go with any look. 

I had been wanting a nameplate bar necklace for a while and when I saw that TAudrey had customizable plates I knew that their hashtag plate was the way to go. TAudrey says to "rock this hashtag plate to show off what makes you "you"...for a little reminder to celebrate your individuality and elegantly flaunt what means the world to you." I mean...how cute is that? It really is the perfect piece to celebrate YOU and after a little deliberation, I knew I would be happiest embracing my love for gold and got myself a little reminder to always stay #golden.

I'm a big fan of layers and clothes that have built in layers are an automatic win in my book. This Goodnight Macaroon sweater is really kind of perfect and makes layering a breeze. With a knit sweater attached to a plaid flannel, you get the layered look without the hassles of extra bulk and fidgeting that comes along with it. I love that you get a peek of plaid just at the bottom and sides (and not the back), versus having a collar attached, which always makes me feel a little too preppy for my taste. It's the perfect mix of classic and chic with just a touch of fall. 

I paired it with plenty of gold, the most perfect edgy/sweet necklace, and my favorite jeans in the history of ever. Seriously, Jbrand super skinnies are the best jeans ever and I don't know what I'd do without them. If you've never tried Jbrand jeans, you're in luck, because they're on Hautelook today at over 60% off!
