I asked you ladies what you wanted to see this week and the number one request was for vacation wear so ask and ye shall receive! Whether you are headed for some fun in the sun or to hit the slopes, I’m sharing everything you should have on your packing list! I have to say that I am pretty jealous that so many of you have vacations booked. As of now my travel list for the year isn’t too long. I’m hoping to decide if I’m going to move out of state and what timeframe that would look like by the end of next month. Until then, it’s hard to really nail down travel plans when you aren’t sure what city you will be living in! So far, here are my definite travel plans for 2019…
February: Fredericksburg & Nashville
March: Chicago & Tulum
September: New York
Looking at my list, the cold is out weighing the heat which means I need to get to booking some more beach trips! I am a water, sand and sun girl through and through! I hope that this post is helpful when you are planning out your outfits and packing lists. Every picture above and below is clickable and will take you directly to the retailer’s site where you can purchase that item. Happy shopping!
A couple of weeks ago Kylee (from Whine to Wine) and I put our college drinking faces on and headed down to Mexico for an adult Spring Break adventure. What is an adult Spring break you might ask? Well, it can easily be summed up as an attempt to relive your college glory days during a week that every college girl and boy pushes the party limits. Heading down to Mexico on one of the busiest travel weeks of the entire year might seem like torture to some people but we enjoyed every minute of it and like to think we fit right in.
While there, we had the opportunity to stay at two of the nicest properties in Cabo- Hacienda Beach Club and Pueblo Bonito Pacifica. Both were truly amazing but totally unique to their own. Whether you are going for a bachelorette party, girls weekend or anniversary trip, Cabo will certainly not disappoint!
HACIENDA BEACH CLUB
First up, was Hacienda Beach Club. This was my second time staying there and personally my favorite if you are looking to be right in the action. It is nestled on Medano Beach which has lots of popular spots including The Office and Mango Deck. It is also walking distance to just about anything and everything you might want to do while in Cabo. The Marina is a short walk from the hotel which is where you would catch a boat to go see the Arches or possibly a sunset cruise. It is also walking distance to tons of good restaurants, bars and other attractions. For being located right in the action, it is extremely quiet and luxurious. It is gated and hands down has the best staff. I do want to mention right off the bat that I left my Aggie ring (one of my most loved and expensive pieces) at this hotel and it was safely returned to me. If that doesn’t speak volumes, I don’t know what does.
While Hacienda is in a great location, you honestly would never have to leave if you didn’t want to. There are two pools- one adult only and one that is kid friendly, all day poolside service, beach access, free internet access, free kayak and paddle boarding, a putting green, an on site restaurant, and so much more. Although after a couple $15 cocktails, I would suggest walking down the beach to The Office or Mango Deck, two very fun places where the drinks are a little more budget friendly.
While pricey, Hacienda is hands down one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. The rooms are beyond spacious (bigger than any apartment I’ve lived in), offer a wrap around balcony that is perfect for drinks on the patio, a surround sound system and a massive kitchen (if you are in to that sort of thing). We enjoyed going down to the lobby for free coffee each morning and then coming back to our balcony to sip on our morning joe with an absolutely incredible view. We actually saw a whale one morning and you will also be able to see the arches in the distance.

PUEBLO BONITO PACIFICA
We spent one luxurious day at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica and basked in all of it’s all-inclusive glory. This resort is tucked away off the beaten path outside of downtown Cabo behind two gates! It is an adult’s only property and is perfect for a couple’s or anniversary getaway. If you are heading down to Cabo for a bachelorette or girls trip, read below. This property has everything you would ever need to be pampered including multiple pools, beach cabanas, butlers, top tier food selections, a golf course, the spa and a hotel “dip pool” (a private balcony pool in each hotel suite).
Kylee and I felt like queens for a day and had a hard time leaving the relaxing luxury that Pueblo Bonito Pacifica offered. As this is an all inclusive resort, you have everything at your fingertips so that you never have to leave. The breakfast brunch was by far our favorite and offered hundreds of gourmet options. I’ve honestly never experienced resort style food this good- my plate had everything from crepes to ceviche to creme brûlée! For dinner, we ate at Península Restaurant, their on site newest restaurant that offers a variety of gourmet cuisine. I opted for the seared tuna and holy moly it was beyond good!
One thing to note about Pueblo Bonito Pacifica is that because of the location, the beach is not one that you can play in the water as the waves and low tide are far too dangerous. That being said, the beach is absolutely beautiful and a walk on the beach between cabana sessions is a MUST!
For more outfit inspiration, I have a beach trip packing listhere and last year’s adult spring break outfitshere.
Happy Friday and I apologize for my blog hiatus. I’ve been having some serious post vacation blues and am just now getting back into the work groove. I also must apologize as I am most positive that I spammed your newsfeed with obnoxious vacation pictures. O wait I haven’t stopped because let’s be honest the vacation life is much more interesting than real life! Pretty poolside cocktails > excel spread sheets and half eaten donuts. If you are not following me on Instagram (shame on you!), and would like to shop my Spring Break outfits, I am going to go ahead and give you all of the outfit details today before sharing the rest of my trip later on because SO many of my outfit pieces are already selling out. Simply click on the item below each picture to shop what I am wearing.
Again, if you are looking for any more vacation or summer outfit inspiration, I have an entire page here that I am currently crushing on! Don’t forget to check back to see more of Britt and I’s adult Spring Break adventures soon!
If you could use a vacation I would like you to raise your hand right now. I’m assuming all of you are raising your hands and I might as well be jumping up and down waving both because this girl needs the beach and a drank STAT! Well I’m excited to say that’s exactly where my happy butt will be in less than 2 days and I could not be more thrilled!
Britt, from Hello Honey blog, and I spontaneously decided a couple of weeks ago that we wanted an adult Spring Break adventure. Although we are certainly not above having a few too many drinks and dancing on the tables, we both were down for a more relaxing beach trip. Mexico was the obvious answer to our Spring Break wannabe blues. So without further ado, we are off to Puerto Vallarta in just 2 short days!
I have been snatching up all of the vacation wear that I can find. Nothing is more true when it comes to packing about suddenly needing 32 outfits for 3 days of vacation. #oops. If you are interested in getting a sneak peak of what I will be bringing along with me, I have listed everything here and also created a Spring Break wish list here.
This top is already packed in my ever growing suitcase and these jeans haven’t even made it in there yet because I wear them on a daily basis. There is a 99.9% chance I will even wear them on the plane. You know that pair of pants that very rarely gets washed because they are almost always on you? These are them and I have no shame whatsoever! As a side note, do make sure to size down in these as they run big.
I’d love for you to share along in our mini adult Spring Break adventures! Follow along with us on my Snapchat (shelbiadams) or Instagram as I post everything that we will be doing, where we are staying, and OF COURSE all of my outfits!

I remember in college I looked forward to Spring Break for months in advance. Planning out every detail so that once we all made it to the beach, it was 24/7 fun. Being the eldest child, I was not allowed to go on Spring Break until my junior year of college. Both of my younger sisters went when they were freshman. I’m still a little bitter about it but let’s continue on.
You don’t need an entire new wardrobe for the beach, because let’s be real you are probably going to be drunk in nothing but a swim suit the whole time. That being said, I always invest in a swim suit, cover up, beach bag and at least one cute outfit for a dinner out. Anything more than that and it just seems not to get worn.
If you are needing to stock up on any of these type of items, Shopbop is having their huge spring sale with up to 25% off depending on how much you spend. They have a great selection year round of name brand items. Everything you see above is apart of this sale. I’ve also included some additional sale picks below. Make sure to make your purchases this weekend so that online orders arrive before Spring Break!
