Bringing Sexy Back

I'm back! Took a quick getaway to Catalina Island for my birthday and let me tell you, it was beyond gorgeous there. I cannot even put into words how wonderful the people are and how beautiful the island is. I will have a full recap of my trip and what I did there, but for now let me remind you that you do get a free roundtrip ride on the Catalina Express on the day of your birthday so I do encourage you to take advantage of it! 

While I'm saving the review of The Avalon Hotel for my recap post, I do want to mention that the ocean view from our hotel room was breathtaking. I had to take advantage of it and snap this Lulu*s open back dress. I love the flow of this dress, however the halter tie band kept grabbing onto my hair and I had no choice but to tie it up. It worked out for the overall look, but it was quite uncomfortable as it ended up snapping onto the baby hairs on the back of my neck. In other words, it did hurt a bit and I only wore the dress for a few hours. 

For the trip, I decided to carry this Culture Riot bag as it had several compartments and fit all my necessities. You can check out what I brought on this trip on my Instagram. The patio wrapped around the hotel room, giving us a 360 degree view and making it a perfect setting for taking shots of the bag. I already miss waking up and seeing the ocean from the bed; cannot wait to go back and explore more.
