What I Wore on a Cruise

Friday, May 25, 2012
So I've had time to put up one cruise post so far if you want to check it out. (Just kidding! Another one is up too.) But here are the most important pictures...what I wore!

I wore this during our first "elegant night" on the cruise. Since I didn't have anything fancy besides business and church attire, I had to improvise with my curtain skirt. I like how it turned out. I got inspiration from this pin. I was also finally able to pull out this red clutch I've had for years but never used! I knew it would come in handy some day. That is what I call a great investment.

thrifted Forever 21 top, $5 (similar); maxi skirt made from a thrifted IKEA curtain, $3 (similar); Gap clutch, $7 (similar); Vince Camuto heels, $76

At Cabo I basically wore this outfit. Actually, it's exactly the same except the shoes. And the hat. And the swimsuit underneath. See more pics of Cabo here..


Forever 21 hat, $4 (similar); Forever 21 necklace, $3 (similar); Gap t-shirt, $10 (similar); thrifted Forever 21 dress, $8 (similar)

This was what I wore on our second day in Cabo. You may think I was crazy for wearing an almost-long-sleeve shirt but Chase got BURNT that day. Who's the crazy one now?!? Anyway, I was going for a J.Crew look here. I liked how it turned out! ..especially since my skin isn't peeling now. Gross...Chase.

At Puerto Vallarta. Going back to the boat after a long day of zip lining and touring the city in a taxi that ended up breaking down.

OH, MY! Who is this? My deardear husband. I had to snap a pic of him in his snazzy turquoise pants I made him buy. Probably because I knew I was going to steal them from him one day. AND I DID. So, seriously... Who wore them better? Don't worry... He barely reads this anyway. You can just say it was me.
