Case in point: my flat hair (it fell out within minutes of curling it), my sweaty forehead and my oil-stained clothes (after having rubbed insect repellent all over myself). All of the elements are against the idea of a shoot — including a husband who would much rather be hanging on the hammock. I’ll have to admit, these aren’t my favorite photos, but this is one of my favorite outfits from our trip. I fell in love with this tropical print dress as soon as I saw it. From the one shoulder ruffle to the bright bold pattern — I knew I had to bring it with me to Tulum. I also don’t have much orange in my wardrobe, but that might just have to change after this number. So remember: if all else fails (curls, sweat, bug bites galore), just throw on a dazzler of a dress and all will be right in the world again.
