That Cruise Life

That Cruise Life - 1I’m seriously missing that cruise life.. I can’t believe that I’ve been back already from the Dominican Republic for almost two weeks with Fathom. Why does summer always feel like it rushes?! Take it easy June.. I can’t wait to share with you my grand adventure over the next couple of blog posts. There was just so much goodness that it’s been taking me a while to organize everything and to write about my experience through words that only my heart could describe. Every time I travel somewhere, I take a bit of it back with me in my heart, but this was a really special trip and I’ve taken more then a piece for my heart, but something so special is permanently ingrained in my soul.  More on that to come..

Since this was my first cruise (a different kind of cruise – more on that soon, I promise) I definitely learned a lot and brought back some extra pounds to prove it (I never knew I could eat so much)! When I was prepping for the trip, I had a hard time packing because I wanted to bring “cute” clothes for the ship, but I also needed “practical” clothes for when I would be volunteering. As you can see, the struggle was real. The good news was that my bag was underweight (small victories are worth celebrating)!

Here’s a list of some starter travel essentials for cruise travel:

SoBe Photo Journal

SoBe - 4This SoBe (South Beach) photo journal is just so beachy! It was a great idea staying in South Beach when Sapna and I were in Miami before the cruise. The weather, although very hot, was a nice treat from Chicago weather. I have not edited these photos whatsoever; the blues were just that blue!! I could definitely get used to this view.. Now, if you’re sitting at your office, just close your eyes and imagine you are at the beach. Can’t you just smell the suntan lotion and feel the salt in the air?! I’ll just leave you all with that visual right now.. SoBe - 5 SoBe - 3 SoBe - 1 SoBe - 2

Wynwood Walls - 19You definitely can’t go to Miami without visiting Wynwood Walls (a personal style blogger’s paradise)! There was so much urban art everywhere with every mural being unique and stunning in its own way. It was impossible to choose just one favorite wall. The variety and colors were also amazing. From bright florals to mesmerizing details; seriously, I could have spent all day there with Sapna. We definitely had a lot of fun exploring the space and we were just a bit giddy all morning because that afternoon we were boarding the Adonia. I can’t wait to share my experience from this past week in the Dominican Republic, so stay tuned! I hope everybody is enjoying summer so far.

XOXO,

Peggy

Traveler Mode - 4How is it Tuesday already?! Apparently, I have to switch to traveler mode real quick because I’m leaving for the Dominican Republic this weekend. I can’t believe that the time has come already. I’m really looking forward to some time exploring, relaxing and most importantly participating in impact activities that benefit the people of the Dominican Republic. I can’t wait to write about my Fathom experiences. I might be a little bit silent next week because there is limited Internet, but I’ll try to post on Instagram and of course, I will be posting everything on HAMR when I get back. Now, what to pack?! Anybody have a go-to packing list?Traveler Mode - 1 Traveler Mode - 2 Traveler Mode - 5 Traveler Mode - 6 Traveler Mode - 7 Traveler Mode - 9 Traveler Mode - 3 Traveler Mode - 10 Traveler Mode - 8

Teal & Lilacs

Teal & Lilacs

Teal & Lilacs - 4I made it you guys – today is the last day of school! Everything seems sooo much better when you have an extended amount of work off and you know that you worked hard all year for this break. You have no idea how happy I am at this moment. I’m not saying anything bad about my job, but it’s been quite the year and it’s definitely time to de-stress and re-group.

Now, back to my outfit. I only have a couple pairs of shoes that I will never get rid of no matter what condition they are in and these wedges are definitely one of those pairs. They are the perfect summer shoes and definitely make this teal and lilacs post pop. I’m also obsessed with all these purple flowers, purple in general, so I hope you like the extra floral photos. My summer style is definitely simple. First of all, I get too hot real fast and I can usually be found in a tank and shorts with sandals because I like the effortless feel where I don’t have too think too much and still feel comfortable. The same goes with my accessories. I love the simplicity of this necklace. It’s the perfect amount of accessorizing for a summer day and can easily transition to a night out.

On that note, have a wonderful summer friends and I’ll try to keep you all updated regularly on life the next couple of months.

XOXO,

Peggy
