Our First Day in Tulum, Mexico



Yesterday we arrived in Tulum, Mexico for an escape from the winter weather! The place we are staying is MAGICAL - it's basically a huge treehouse on top of the Caribbean Sea. We have a hut with an oceanfront balcony overlooking the ocean. There are no showers here, just bathtubs (with a seashell for pouring water on yourself!) and at night, there are no electric lights, they come around and light candles all over your room instead. It's such a refreshing change from what I'm used to, it's forcing me to slow down and just enjoy each moment. (Also FYI - no wifi or TV in the rooms!)

This white cover-up maxi dress was one of the first items I ordered for the trip. I love love love the low back!  I've had the swimsuit for several years now and it's still a favorite. 

I'll be doing a review of our hotel in the next couple of weeks for those that are interested!
xoxo

    2. Oh my gosh, congrats on your wedding! So exciting! Thanks so much! We are getting married at Ana y Jose in June! It's definitely been an adventure so far (and maybe a little, or a lot stressful). How was Zama's? We're trying to recommend other places for our guests to stay if they choose!
