My favorite part of traveling is finding unique items along the way to take back home.  Its fun to infuse these pieces into my daily life when I return to Dallas and be able to tell a story about them and remember exactly that specific moment during vacation when I purchased them.

So far during my time in Cabo, I have picked up 2 gorgeous Mexican embroidered pieces: the top I am wearing above and a beautiful, colorful dining table runner for when I host some Mexican inspired fiestas at home! These embroidered pieces always remind me of my mother: When I was young she would wear this floor length Mexican embroidered dress around the house…I think my grandmother might have picked it up for her during her travels to Acapulco….and I always loved the detail work and the colors, and now it is special for me to own some of these memorable pieces myself.

Any items you have picked up during your travels that really mean a lot to you?

    Hope you are having an amazing time. I’m so glad to see that you were one of the top sellers. Congrats on that. Great island look. The weather looks amazing. Hopefully there will more pictures of your trip.

    Happy Friday!

  • Tricia

    Great look as always; I’m hoping you can tell us a bit more about the rompers you and Tori were wearing in your Instagram photos. The neon peach colour is everything!

  • Courtney

    Perfect outfit for vacation! Love your hat!

  • Megan Q

    You have about 5 trends on at once, which *should* silly (it would on me!), yet somehow you of course pull it off and look UH-MAZING! You and Pink Peonies have me wanting to run out and get the tallest gladiators I can possibly find! Keep it up 😀

    Love the top! I wish I could have found something cute like that in Tulum, but we didn’t have time for much shopping. Last summer, I picked up some beautiful gold-leaf olive branch jewelry in Santorini and a Greek key pendant and earrings in Chania, Crete. Gorgeous pieces that I know I’ll keep forever and hopefully pass down one day!

    Love this outfit!


  • Erica

    LOVE the outfit! You can find some of the best things while traveling. When I studied abroad in Spain, we went to Morocco for a weekend and I found a great throw blanket made of cactus silk. I still have it on my couch today.


    I LOVE Los Cabos!
    One of the most gorgeous places I have ever been to.

    Enjoy 😉

    Love your style! I just got back from Cabo and had to live vicariously and get your nail color today. xo

  • Ellen Faith

    I seriously need to buy a fedora. They’re so cute!!

    I’m going to Italy in July so hopefully I’ll have a few pieces that have a story to them when I get back 🙂


  • Courtney

    As soon as I opened this post I fell in love with the top, and even more so when i saw it was from a marketinca bo! I am going to be there in a month so I hope I can find something similar. I’m obsessed with these peasant tops. 🙂 Did you get in San Jose del Cabo?

    Love the whole relaxed look Courtney!!! I have a feeling that’s what I’ll be sporting too!


  • Kellie The Shoe Diva

    Looking back, I don’t think I’ve really gotten myself anything memorable from my trips. I always end up buying stuff to bring back to people back home. I should start doing this, though! Love the embroidered top!

  • Eni

    This shorts and this sandals are really amazing!!!!

  • Sara

    I love this outfit! Perfect for Cabo! The shoes are so cute, I’ve been looking for a pair of gladiator sandals I will have to check these out.
