The rehearsal dinner was a white party…and right up my alley.
I lived in these sheer pants that come in black and white.
The airport “bar”.
This was not my first rodeo. I went with my husband a few years ago to Turks and Caicos on our “babymoon”. This was, however, my first time going for a wedding…and not being pregnant…and leaving two kids behind for a long weekend. If you know me, you know that this vacation was very much needed. I hit my breaking point juggling everything while adjusting to my new life of being a mom to two, in the burbs, while simultaneously blogging and styling and having few if any hands to help me. I may have really cracked had I not taken a few days breather in the sun to think about nothing, eat anything and recharge everything. I got to sleep past 7 am, work out every morning (a commodity for me with my schedule) and have more than a couple of cocktails, because let’s face it, hangovers just don’t happen on vacation.
A few of my vacay highlights:
Dining at Coco Bistro: And no, I didn’t choose this spot because of its name! The food is out of this world and the ambiance can’t be beat, outside in nature.
Beach House and Blue Haven: We stayed in a gorgeous 1 bedroom (with a kitchen, washer and dryer, living room and beautiful balcony) at Blue Haven, where the wedding was. The rehearsal dinner and ceremony were on the beach at Beach House, the sister property. Both are two totally different feels but equally beautiful.
I started and finished reading The Girl On The Train. Overall it was a pretty decent book, but sort of predictable. The important part for me though was that I actually picked up a book, one of my favorite things to do, that I just never get to do.
I finally got to wear some of my favorite warm weathered outfits that I haven’t seen for a couple of years. Last Summer I was pregnant, so it felt nice to pull them out of the archives.
If you’re visiting Turks, know that on your way home there’s that last little sliver of vacation that can be found on the aiport rooftop “bar”, aka shack that sells Turks Head beer (Thanks Mike S. for the tip). Hey, it’s better than waiting inside to board!
