south of the border

south of the border | currently loving

When I first came across this top while browsing the J. Crew website my mind immediately went back to San Jose del Cabo. In 2009 JD and I went down with his family over the summer. In my memories, it was a wonderful trip spent laughing and exploring and soaking up as much sun and salt air as possible. I very clearly remember the day we drove up to Todos Santos to walk around and have lunch in this adorable little place that his uncles loved. JD bought a hammock and Nick and I got parasites. The rest of the trip was awkward. 

This is what I would have liked to have been wearing. I love maxi dresses and skirts in the summer, as well as for traveling. They're so easy and simple but also elegant and transitional. For a day of exploring I would pair this lovely Tibi number with a cute embroidered top, classic ballet flats, and a dainty bracelet. 

Happy Wednesday!
