So excited to share my vacay photos with you all! Living in Miami, it’s the easiest thing in the world to just hop on a weekend cruise and get away for a few days. This weekend, my sister Megan and I did just that and had a relaxing 4 days to just chill, eat, and basically have a good time on the Carnival Ecstasy.
As one who (obviously) loves fashion, a cruise is kind of the ideal vacation because you can change clothes, like, 10 times a day. Breakfast, bathing suit, casual outfit, dinner outfit… I packed at least 4 outfits a day. I snapped pics of a few of my fave looks and will be sharing them with you this week and next!
So on to this outfit. This was definitely a controversial one, but one of my favorites. My sisters hate it, my mom kind of hates it. I’m not usually one to go for a boho chic look, but being that this was a cruise, I kind of fell in love with the idea of the cool gaucho pant and matching kimono. I had spotted these pieces at Target a few weeks ago, and while intrigued, I didn’t take the plunge until we decided to go on this trip. Since the proportions are so oversized and drapey, showing a little skin was crucial to keep the outfit from looking like crazy Mrs Roper. I paired it with my favorite, favorite black crop top from Kohl’s and a cool espadrille wedge that’s a million years old. (Related: I realized while I was packing for this trip that these are basically the only wedges I own. I have one more pair that I got, like, 5 years ago. Immediately added wedges to my to-buy list!) This outfit was SO comfortable and easy… loved wearing it. Plus, the pieces work great together or separately. Throw the kimono on over a bikini, or with a pair of jean shorts, or wear the pants with a crop top and jean jacket… super versatile. So tell me in the comments: what do you think of this look??
Can’t wait for you to see some of my other outfits from the trip! Stay tuned to the blog the rest of this week and next. By the way- I’m headed to NYC tomorrow morning! Make sure you follow along on Snapchat (username: stephaniepernas) and Instagram!
