Orange beach dress

Orange beach dress

One thing I love about going to the beach is being able to throw on a cute, colourful dress. I wore this orange beach dress on my vacation to Playa del Carmen Mexico. I paired it with fun fringed sandals and a Mexican backpack for an eclectic vacation outfit.

My orange dress is from Hollister (similar here), my sandals are Minnetonka, my sunglasses are Prada and my back was purchased along 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen, but you can find a similar bag at Urban Outfitters.

 I also piled on the jewelry with some colourful pieces mixed in with gold.

The whole week I was on vacation, I never so much as dipped a toe into the (admittedly stunning) pool at my resort. How could I when there was this perfect stretch of white sand. My sister and I would spend hours walking up and down the beach, into Playa del Carmen, stopping for a swim or fruity drink along the way. I stayed at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya Hotel. And while the food left something to be desired, I loved that the hotel chain had several other hotels along the strip, so that you could hotel hop and grab a refreshment during a walk.

I also love meeting the local dogs and playing fetch. I’m very jealous of that dog right now, playing in the sand while I’m writing this post under a wool blanket!

Looking back at these pictures of this orange beach dress make me want to embrace more colour, and bring out what tan I have left!
