I am seriously the worst when it comes to posting pictures, so I very proud of myself for getting these up (even two weeks after!). N + I were looking forward to this trip for weeks (& weeks). I was pretty much packed a couple weeks before, which is not the ush. We woke up bright + early to catch our 5:45 AM flight out of Reagan International Airport & finally landed in Punta Cana (after 7 hours of flying). Much to our dismay it was a torrential down pour - I honestly thought our airplane was going to crash (no joke!). I am going to spare you the rest of the negative details, but just know that the start of our trip was not what we wanted because of the way we were treated by Majestic Elegance. & even when we got home we were still not feeling ourselves. On the positive side, we got to spend some much needed time together, the weather was gorgeous & the beaches were amazing.

Hard to believe it has been two weeks since N + I got back from Punta Cana. I can't say that it was the best trip of our lives (long story & details to come soon) but the weather certainly was to die for! & those beaches, 100% perfection. Packing for a week away can be somewhat challenging, but I was sure to pack plenty of light weight dresses. This gorgeous strapless maxi was by far one of my favorites & I hoping that I can get one more wear of it before Fall weather is here for good.

It's Monday + I am pretty sure I enjoying myself (alot!). I haven't had a beach day all summer long, so am def soaking up on the sun + sand (& cold beverages too!). These are some of my beach day essentials that are a must for me.

Hope your Monday's are off to a great start! Be sure to stop back by Wednesday for Four Favorites (LEATHER).
