I am still wishing I was at Playa Escondida - an amazing, secluded beachfront hideaway and spa in Sayulita, Mexico. During my trip last month, it was my favorite place for a style shoot, since it was very exclusive, with minimal people around. It was easy to get my shots in and then enjoy the rest of the day at the infinity pool or beach.
The Life is Good Terry Beach Hoodie in Washed Plum was my go-to pullover. It was too hot and humid humid to really be wearing it on the beach, but was perfect for wearing in-transit, in between flights, on the plane or on my way home. It's soft with a raw edge detail and the XS fits perfectly. It's a great end-of-summer piece to wear when it gets a little breezy or cooler out. It also comes in Turquoise Blue or Heather Gray. I also brought my Life is Good Live on the Sunny Side Beach Towel.
I barely brought any jewelry with me on my trip, since it was too hot and sticky to be wearing necklaces and rings. The perfect jewelry for the beach is Go Nearly Naked Simply Sexy Gold Barefoot Sandals. These anklet barefoot sandals are adjustable and 14 karat gold plated, with a signature paisley charm. It's delicate and lightweight, and stays in place even if you get your feet wet while taking a stroll on the beach. They can be worn with any type of sandals, flip-flops, or open-toed heels.
I brought another pair of Oka-B sandals on my trip - Grace Slides in Mandarin. They are sturdy and ergonomic with soothing massage beads. Since they are waterproof, it was easy to rinse off any excess sand.
Playa Escondida is definitely a spot I look forward to visiting again, especially since I didn't have a chance to visit Islas Marietas and am addicted to the local food in Sayulita. You can check out my full review of Playa Escondida here.
