We did a long weekend cruise. Two full days at sea, one day in Mexico, and four nights on board the Carnival Triumph.
The majority of our days at sea were spent lounging around, sipping on cocktails, reading our books and chatting away.
Cruising essentials, of course.
Ironically, I was the only one that didn’t get burned during our trip. SPF, you guys!
And the most important cruising essentials when on a bachelorette party: flower crowns, blinged out straws and flamingo cup holders.
This is our second bachelorette party to use these guys. Amazon has a dozen for only $9!
What, you don’t bring these tchotchkes along when you cruise too!?
And when you’re a “grown-up” you find yourself waking up at 6:30 AM because your biological clock does not understand that you are in fact, on a cruise!
It was a perfectly great excuse to get up and play with my camera while the rest of the boat was sleeping.
Otherwise, I would have never known that magical cruise fairies left towel animals on all of the beach chairs at night, now would I?
Have you ever seen a cruise ship so empty?
It was fun to sit up there and sip my coffee in solitude, watching the sunrise.
As this was my first ever cruise, I really had no idea what to expect. Sure, I’d heard all about the endless amount of food on cruise ships … but seeing it was something else entirely.
Unlimited salsa you guys!
On our second fun day at sea, we decided that we found the perfect spot for sunning aboard the entire ship.
I just did a bit of googling, and now I’m feeling really smart because I can safely say that this above picture was taken on the “port” side of the ship. I guess I should have known this? Because it did actually dock at the port both times ….
Hey, it was my first cruise! And it didn’t come with a handbook.
Anyway, we loved this spot because we were far from the music, the bars, and the noise of the pool party scene. That was a whole lot of fun on the first day.
Photo with the bride! And doing what we do best, sharing each other’s clothes. Isn’t she looking fab-u-lous in my pretty cover up?
I packed this black Free People dress to wear as a dress during the trip, but I found it made for such a fun cover up too.
So without further ado, let me share an outfit with ya! 😉
Because, as we all know, this is mostly a fashion blog after all.
I paired my favorite pink silk skirt (only $116!) with a white tasseled open back crop top & statement earrings for dinner that evening.
Little did I know that my outfit would be matching the sunset behind me!
PS: Love this girl with all my <3 <3 <3!
Since this photo was taken, she has become a Mrs! I’d say we sent her off very well. 🙂
