Up Up and Away

style

Travelling to Mexico … with a baby. The list looks very different from the usual. ‘Remember,’ says my mom, ‘It’s not a fashion show… people dress super casual in Nuevo Vallarta.’

Paring down will be key. Let’s start at the bottom and work our way up.

For the winter arrival at the airport, then to walk the streets in Mexico: brown ankle boots – pairs with jeans and dresses.

For tops and bottoms, everything has to go with everything and it needs to enable nursing. In addition to a few mix and match pieces, I’ll be bringing some dresses.

HM nursing top


Nursing bras from HM and I’ll also be bringing three nursing tanks (which are tops or layers) in black, white and grey

Tank dress with nursing panel


Athleisure will feature heavily – like this combo from Aerie

What vacation would be complete without some crop tops? I just gave birth two months ago and feel more empowered than ever to rock a bathing suit and live the mantra – a swimsuit body is any body with a swimsuit on it.

Contortions, trapeze, pole, juggling, flight, strength, balance, ropes, swings, hoops, grace, beauty, water and magic. Let the pictures speak the thousand words. And see it, quickly, before the magic is over.

   
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
  

The show didn’t stop once you stepped outside the tent; Mexican wrestling, red carpets, wine and champagne, celebs and magazine editors …under the night sky.   
    
        
  

Up close and vert yet personal; “Wanna turn around for the good picture”

    
    
    
    
 

Repost: An open letter to Donald Trump

Open Letters

Hey Donald! Or should I call you President Trump? It certainly has a magnificent ring to it.
