Here is the second half of the trip as I promised to you yesterday. Even a beach lover like myself can only lounge in the sun for so long before I need some adventure. On my last full day in Mexico, we hopped in our rental and drove 20 minutes south to Tulum. I have some sort of weird obsession with ancient ruins and temples when I travel so I was excited to explore the Mayan Ruins of Tulum.
This was a huge national park with all different types of terrain from rocky cliffs to beaches and rainforest areas. It was a mere $10 to enter and you could spend as long as you liked hiking, biking, swimming, or just relaxing.
It’s so amazing that these structures are still standing after all of these years. Mankind can be absolutely intriguing!
There was definitely a mystical feeling in the air here.
Hiking through the jungle.
Another gorgeous view from the cliff tops.
I hope you enjoyed me sharing my little trip with you. Where have you traveled that you loved the most?
Baby! It’s cold! That’s probably the understatement of the year. In light of the polar vortex we are experiencing down here in the south, I was inspired to feature an appropriate cold weather look. Just because it feels like Antarctica outside doesn’t mean you have to look frumpy while battling the elements. A classic fair isle sweater is a great festive winter staple. The variety of colors that are available in the pattern make pairing this sweater simple and fun. Of course, no cold weather look would be complete without a warm, down, puffer coat. A belted style coat provides an otherwise bulky silhouette a feminine shape, and is so chic. I love fur accents on anything to add a little luxe. I have been coveting a pair of Sorel boots for a while but have not pulled the trigger. This winter blast may just give me that nudge I need to cop a pair. Lastly, top off the look with winter hat with ear flaps to keep you warm.
