Packing For Paradise

The arrival. 

First impressions are everything.

Coming into this season I was excited for the prospect of who I might meet! With the desire to feel confident, I wore a dip dyed coverup that I've had for a few years that I felt my best in. Both sheer and sophisticated, I haven't been able to find this exact "gown" as Nick Viall put it, but below are some comparable shoppable finds. 


The date. 

"Caila, It's time to get back in the saddle" read the oh-so blissfully written date card. 

When I think of romance, there is only one place I turn & that is the Morning Lavender Boutique. I often find myself getting lost in their whimsical online closet and this Cora White Crochet Off the Shoulder Top fit right into the sunset horseback riding book cover yet to unfold. 



Playful cards by the beach. 

This was one of my favorite moments in Paradise. 

Cribbage, Euchre, Hearts... card games are a wonderful way to unwind and share in playful conversation. With an inclination to hold my card hand close, Jared was sweet to teach me the ins and outs of Poker. Sometimes it's alright to fold when you have a bad hand. 

Quite a few of you have been asking about this bikini! One of my favorite pieces with an adorable pineapple pattern, this Azure Swimwear bathing suit is supportive and a little dressy for any beach occasion. 

A big thank you to those of you with kind words to share & I hope you enjoyed this post. 

        With love, Caila
