Vacation Recap: My St. Maarten Adventure

If you may or may not know, I just got back from spending an amazing 2 weeks in St. Maarten. If you have not been to this beautiful island and ever have the chance to go, take it. It is one of the most magical places and I fall more in love each time I visit because let’s be honest, if your morning coffee view looked this good would you ever want to leave?

With that being said, let’s recap my Caribbean adventure!

Beachin’ it all day is one of my favorite things to do. No work, no school, no phone calls and emails to answer…it’s so nice to have some time to yourself to relax. I got to catch up on some leisurely reading, like the newest issue of Cosmo with my girl Miranda Lambert and soak up the sun with my Michael Kors sunnies and Tarteguard to protect me of course.

For the times when I’m not relaxing in the sun, I also love to be active. I hiked to the top of Fort Amsterdam one day where I got to take in the entire island. It was absolutely breathtaking!

I also went snorkeling a lot and found some deep sea treasures! Next time I’m definitely bringing an underwater camera.

I also would be remiss if I didn’t mention that even on vacation, you can still find me rooting for my Buffalo Bills!

After a solid W, it was also nice to enjoy drinks and watch the sunset at the beach side bar. This was one of my favorite views!

St. Maarten has some of the most amazing food. If you’re ever there, my absolute favorite spot is Zee Best. Their brunch is to die for!

Another super exciting thing happened while I was gone as well. I woke up to over 1,000 followers on Instagram! I couldn’t even believe that was real life- the fact I have so many of you reading my posts and following along with me is amazing. So thank you, I’m truly appreciative.

Now let’s get to the heart and soul of The Blonde Side…my vacation style!

This was my New Year’s Eve Outfit layout. This two piece stunner is from Lord and Taylor’s Design Lab Collection, which I’m now obsessed with! You can find the top here and the skirt here and here is a look book of some of my favorite outfits from the trip- easy, breezy vacation style for this girl.

All in all, this was one of the most incredible trips of my life. Until next time St. Maarten!
