Back in the six! While it may not quite be Tulum, spring has certainly sprung in the city since I've been gone, and I'm happy to be able to put away my heavy winter coat and slip into something a little more fashion-forward. To welcome in the warmer weather, I've been lucky enough to get my hands on these amazing pair of lace-up black jeans from Fidelity Denim before they hit stores.
Say goodbye to the zipper! I've been seeing this lace-up pant trend everywhere lately on models from Kendall Jenner to Bella Hadid. While I've seen them styled in a variety of ways, I opted for a full-on monochromatic ensemble to give off the ultimate city girl vibe. I paired my lace-ups with a basic black turtleneck from Mink Pink, a Zara full-length open vest, a two-toned Club Monaco scarf and plush microsuede Steve Madden boots.
It's easy to be happy to be back in the city with a cool girl look like this.
For my first day in Tulum, I wore a black slip dress from Dynamite to explore the Mayan ruins and bike around the town. Before heading out, I snapped some photos at the Kore Tulum Retreat and Spa Resort, where I stumbled upon this adorable rope swing set, encased in green palm trees and drenched in sun.
For a late lunch, I switched into this floral wrap dress from Dynamite, new to the brand's spring '17 collection. With a high middle slit and a bold blossom print, I found the dress perfect against the blue sky backdrop with splatters of green and white.
Hands down, this dress was one of my favourites that I brought on the trip. With its daring print and flowing silhouette, it gave off the perfect romantic vibe.
No matter where I travel, I always carry with me a great pair of boyfriend jeans. On my latest and first trip to Tulum, Mexico, I brought these MADISON Crystal Blue embroidered jeans from Fidelity Denim's Spring 2017 line that proved to be a comfortable and stylish addition from the airport to the beach.
Rolling up the hem and going bare foot in the sand, I combined this amazing pair of blue denim with two basic staples in my closet: a loose-fitting white tank from Club Monaco and my rose-tinted shades from Dior. With a little more structure than the usual tattered boyfriend jeans, I found them extremely versatile to wear, adding an off-the-shoulder top and strappy heels fresh into the night.
My favourite part about these jeans? The adorable embroidered back pocket that perfectly encapsulates this ocean vibe.
