Beach Butt

TULUM, here we come

My best friend Kristen and I just finished booking our trip to Tulum, Mexico in May. I have never been anywhere naturally stunning quite like this place and certainly never to a tropical climate, so it goes without saying (but I will say it) I am excited as hell! The most important part of planning the trip – actually booking – is done, so now I’m thinking about all the touristy shit we will do and of course, what I will wear. I’m pretty set for everydaywear, sort of, but beachwear… I own one swimsuit, so I am looking to add a few more to the rotation (of one). I’ve been pinning any swimsuits I love from around the web and thought I would share some with you, as well as some fun beachy accessories because ban.do just released some more super cute shit!ModCloth

Garbage Beach

DSC_0110This particular morning felt pretty special to me. It was one of those days I woke up, the sun was shining, the winter winds were absent, and I just knew it would be idyllic weather to go snap some shots by the water, and take in the quiet for a few hours. This area I know especially well – it’s walking distance from my home, and a location pals and I frequent for bonfires in the summer and early fall. The name we gave this beach is not so charming, “Garbage Beach” (no explanation needed). Name aside, it holds a special place in my heart. It’s usually devoid of many people, which can be one of the loveliest things to find in a city like Toronto. Last week really was a beautiful one, not just in terms of choice weather. I’m feeling quite spirited and full of love these days. Surrounding myself with people who make me laugh, wearing poo coloured clothes (as seen above), choreographing dances to wonderful music (ahem passenger). It feels good to be smiling during winter, because god knows it can really take a toll on my mood (wahhhh, it’s cold. wahhhh it’s so dark out).

But, on to less sentimental things. The skirt I’m wearing is in the shop. It’s such a great one. You’d be surprised to know it’s actually a size large, but it went with the vibes I was going for that day, so I threw on a belt, and voila, it will not be around my ankles within 3 steps out the door. Everything really was based around the cape though. I bought this cape about 2 years ago and NEVER wear it. However, I won’t let it go. It’s one of those pieces that comes in handy from time to time, mostly when I’m thinking up little red riding hood vibes, but without the hood, and the red. Actually, to be honest, I think it only ever gets wear at this very beach. Last time I wore it was for warmth at one of our bonfires. Do you guys have clothes you just can’t part with?! I’m sure I’m not the only impractical one.
