Collaborator Post | The Insider's Guide to Cozumel

A new year calls for a refresh. We started our blog with the intention of collaborating with some badass females, and in the spirit of that collaboration... meet Yuri!

Founder of ACE :: Align. Create. Enjoy. High fives for one hell of a mantra. We're big fans of her as a human and her blog because not only did she follow her heart to completely switch career gears from corporate HR to yogi, but she followed a dream to unplug from the chaos and tune into herself by living a tropical destination lifestyle for awhile. She's one brave chic (slow clap), and we've enlisted her to bring us her 'Cozumel Hit List'. Girl has got the life right now, so read on for some serious vacation inspo...

I have never considered myself a great traveler, nor do I consider myself an above average hostess. (This is mostly due to a severe inferiority complex, in combination with the inability to perform well under social pressure, but that is an entirely different blog post). It is for these two reasons that I am shocked to feel absolutely confident in throwing together a little beach inspo for all you winter-ridden mainlanders out there.

Dressing Up the T-Shirt

I will always be a tomboy at heart. 

Give me a t-shirt, camo sweats, a snapback hat, converse kicks and I'm golden. But one does need to dress up the norm once in awhile, and while heels don't often find their way on my feet, this issssss a fashion blog, so heels it is.

The Overalls Obsession

We're still feeling that summertime heat here in Denver, and I am absolutely LIVING in overalls. 
Maybe it's the Iowa farmer girl in me, maybe it's the inner tomboy, but whatever it is...
 I. Am. Obsessed.

Engagement Snaps - a few favorites.

I've decided that 2017 is going to the be The Year of Good. It's the year I turned the big 3-0, the year we really decided to push for this blog thing, the year I made a heartbreakingly tough albeit good and important career decision (know your worth), and the year I get to marry this handsome piece of a man. If the universe were to stop right now and say "Ok, Kaylee. Your good tokens are about used up for the year." I'd be just fine with that.  

In the spirit of all the good, I wanted to share a few of my favorite engagement photos taken by the amazingly talented Cassie Rosch Photography. Cass - all the gratitude in the world is not enough.

Palazzo Pants

Palazzo Pants. What the heck is that?  Well let's drop a little history. Palazzo pants first made their way into main stream fashion in the late 60's - early 70's. I am sure you could have probably guessed that with their wide leg and loose fit. Flash forward to 2017, here we are again, and happy to say I love them.

Western Chic Look

My first pair of high waisted denim! I know, I know. What the hell took me so long? To be honest, I'm not one for hopping on too many trends, especially with denim because I like them to last me awhile. But while in Miami for a girls trip, I tried this pair on and instantly swooned at the fit. Where have these been all my life?!

And for this particular outfit, mix a high waist + fringe boot + cowboy hat + bandana and you got yourself what I have decided is Western Chic. I dig it.

Springtime Romping

It's the time of year where mother nature is more hormonal than me during shark week (my man's endearing term for PMSing) and she can't decide on which direction she wants the weather to go. One day it's sunny and gorgeous, the next day there's five feet of snow and the only thing I want to do is sit on my couch, bundled up, watching reruns of Real Housewives and Vanderpump Rules.
