#PersonalStyle: My ‘Ocho Rios Vacation’ Beach & Pool #Fashion Break-Down

Hi All!

You’ve undoubtedly noticed my absence from the blog as I was at Sandals Ochi Beach Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica for some much needed rest and relaxation. If you follow me on Instagram than you kept up with all our adventures whilst vacay’ing on the beautiful isle of Jamaica.  From a Bob Marley musical pilgrimage to the mountain village of Nine Mile to dancing on the beach with the Silver Birds Steel Band… I think we did it all…

And while doing so, even in the pounding sun and balmy temps, I tried my best to keep it pretty and stylish!

Below check out a few of my favorite beach and poolside looks as well as deets on where you can find these exact looks:

Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel re-visited its iconic quilted motif with my Chanel Spring 2007 RTW Cream Swimsuit. When I first saw it on the runway I wanted it immediately – and I honestly couldn’t believe my luck when I found it, and in my size, after coveting it for so long. Upon its arrival I was so excited I was practically shaking as I opened my package. It even has the signature embroidered front patch pockets with gold CC logo button detailing. Of course, Chanel was my first choice to wear on Day 1 of my vacay. Color me silly, but I only posed for pictures in this gorgeous couture swimsuit – I didn’t dare get it wet in the water (lol). Maybe next time…

When I wasn’t in the water I lounged in a Diane von Furstenberg Leurette Cover-Up in Animal/Cool Warhol Leopard Flower.

My silk-chiffon sheer tunic is a DVF collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation and features a deep V-neck, smocking and draping at the front, an asymmetrical hem, and ruched batwing sleeves with drawstring ties.

I was smitten with this absolutely gorgeous print after Atlanta housewife Porsha Williams’ wore the full version poolside in Anguilla.  Yep, I shop the reality stars’ looks that I blog about just as much as ya’all do! LOL!

If you love it too get one remaining here.

I turned a few heads on the beach in this cute Private Party BAE WATCH Swimsuit. This nylon-elastane blend red one-piece swimsuit has a bright white screen print graphic and is custom made to order. I felt like I should have a whistle around my neck and be saving lives – so fun!

And these bold Miu Miu White Rasoir Sunglasses set my red bathing suit off perfectly. Last spotted on Joseline Hernandez here, my semi rimless cat eye frames have a cut off effect at the bottom. Get them in White here and in Black here.

Hello Sailor!

My ModCloth Merry Mariner One-Piece Swimsuit features a sweetheart neckline with a retro halter tie, flattering low leg-line, and red and white anchor button detailing that matches the red waistband. Get it at ModCloth.

I threw caution to the wind on Day 7 of our vacation in a Victoria’s Secret Ruffled Triangle Bikini Set in Peach/Orange. The triangle bikini top is fully lined and ties at the neck and back, and the low rise bottom has side ties with moderate back coverage. My bikini is long sold out at Vicky’s but, if you must have it, I found several available on eBay!

And, of course, my fav Tom Ford ‘Miranda’ Sunglasses in Shiny Rose Gold were a nice complement to my Chanel Swimsuit as well as my Victoria’s Secret Bikini. These oversized shades, last worn at my birthday celebration, feature cross-front metal frames with exposed brown gradient lenses. Cop them at Bloomingdale’s.

And just for fun, here are a few of my fav outfits from vacay. As you can see, your girl love rompers… because they’re so easy-breezey!

I brought a touch of boho-glam to the resort in a Flying Tomato Siesta Romper. My fun and colorful printed romper has adjustable spaghetti straps and an elastic band at the waist. This exact tribal print is sold out but get it in a variety of colors below.

And finally, I bet on plaid in a Talbots Sea Waves Plaid Romper to lounge by the pool. This super comfortable and soft romper in pastel hues has spaghetti straps and an invisible back zipper.

I hope you enjoyed my beach/pool and day looks as much as I enjoyed putting them together. Yes, I was well-prepared for this BAEcation! LOL!

*Special shout-out to my husband for being so patient and amazing about taking my pictures every single morning (and many of them), when he was so ready to leave our villa and get the day started. He’s the best!*

And now we’ll return to our regularly scheduled reality TV fashion posting! XO
