What you say, Bobo? – Cayman Islands

I am going to get deep here (because I don't do it enough, of course). I think its time I share something from my past that you all might find a tad interesting: I did not live my entire life in Panama, I actually spent two years of my childhood in the tropical island of Grand Cayman. To say that I remember my time there would be a lie, considering I was two years old when I arrived. I do have a tiny memory of escaping my crib and getting caught twice, but I am not sure if I imagined it from hearing that story so many times or if my memory skills really resemble that of an elephant. Anyhow, my parents say it was an amazing time and oh boy were they right! During my last visit home, I was surprised with a family vacation to the Caymans to celebrate that we were all free at the same time, and Easter of course (hope this explains my continued absence). I had a long time to think and relax and I reached  a few conclusions that I am tempted to share with you. Number one, now I understand my uncontrollable desire to live in a tropical place in front of the beach. Number two, whoever invented Bloody Marys for breakfast was a genius!
Besides the tiny detail that when driving in Cayman, you must do as the English do, which, after 7 days I still couldn't master, the island was as close to paradise as it gets. Wonderful food, gorgeous sunsets, psychedelic houses, nice people, and funny accents galore.. what else can you ask. I for my part managed to get a tan that might last for the entire summer and I also got to see the house where I lived for those two years of my childhood. Nothing like reminiscing on times you don't really remember. One more thing I can scratch of my bucket list! Before I lose you to another blogger, let me get to the good part:



Look 1: Dress- ASOS skirt worn as dress, Necklace- Jewelmint, Bracelets- Peru, F21, Panama, Sandals- LF



Look 2: Top- H&M, Bottom- Zara, Necklace- J.Crew, Sunglasses- BCBG


My best look yet- Courtesy of Victoria Secret and Captain Marvin's



Look 3: Top- F21, Skirt- American Apparel, Shoes- ALDO, Hanbag- Cambridge Satchel, Earrings- Tara Chial, Ring- Kenneth Jay Lane, Bracelet- David Yurman, Sunglasses- BCBG




I found this bandana in my mom's bag. I am sure she's been reading the mags and wanted to rock her 80's fashion. I am giving her points for embracing 'vintage' accessories! 


Look 4: Top- H&M, Skirt- Brandy Melville, Belt- H&M, Sandals- Coconuts, Necklace- Nepal, Rings- Peru and Mexico, Sunglasses- BCBG



PS-This pictures were not saturated for intense colors, that is how the water looks everyday...
