Getaway Recap: Aruba

It goes by too quickly... every time. Vacation that is. Don't you agree? We were there for 5 days and 5 nights, but it felt like 2 days and 1 night. Seriously. Aruba never disappoints. Have you seen those ads on TV describing the island as "One Happy Island"? They speak the truth. People are so incredibly hospitable, the food is delish and so fresh, the calm ocean is perfect, the breeze cools down even the hottest of days... it all adds up to the perfect getaway. We go with K's family every single year and it never gets old. This year we ate at some of our favorites (Madame Janette, Smokey Joe's, and Yemanja), paid a visit to the spa for a much needed couple's massage, spent some time (a bit too much time!) in the casino playing blackjack, and laid out under the Aruban sun every day. Here's a few pictures that I felt sum up our trip perfectly.
Outfits: (1) Dress: Pencey from The Edit, Wedges: Steve Madden, Clutch: LV, (2) Dress: Tibi, (3) Dress: BCBG, Clutch: LV, Shoes: Belle by Sigerson Morrison, Earrings: Design Darling, Necklace: Vintage, (4) Dress: DVF, (5) Top: The Edit, Jeans: MiH, Wedges: Steve Madden, Necklace: Paul Smith.

  10. I went to Aruba a few years ago on a cruise with my family... it was so beautiful. I was a little freaked out because of the whole Natalie Holloway thing but I got over it & had a blast. It was so beautiful! Looks like you had a wonderful time & got a great little base tan going for summer!! :)
