My Vacation in Punta Cana | Sirenis Cocotal resort

At the airport  |  On the plane with my friends (we flew West Jet and the crew was amazing)

Hello friends!  I’m back and feeling slightly guilty for leaving my blog unattended for a full week (a first in almost three years!) but quite rested from my trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  

We left on a Saturday and stayed for seven days at the Sirenis Cocotal resort, a four-star resort with a beautiful beach.  I went with my best friend, her hubby and my other close friend.  The weather was a mix of beautiful and hot, and crazy thunderstorms with heavy rain.  The buffets weren’t the best but the a la carte restaurants were delicious!  I’d love to share some photos with you…

Upon arrival at our resort.

Outfit deets:  Le Chateau hat, Joe Fresh cardigan, H&M tank, Sirens leggings, Walmart flats & Winners bag.

 …and then it poured rain.

 Yummy slushy drinks  |  Beautiful pools

One morning on our balcony, we saw a grounds keeper up in a palm tree trimming the palms and throwing down the coconuts.  We watched him climb up use a rope attached to his waist and the tree to climb up and down (unbelievable!).  We cheered him on and next thing we knew he showed up at our door with two coconuts, cut open, to drink from.  We were pretty excited!  (BTW, don’t do this; although we were excited, the four of us spent the next four days in the bathroom – eep, TMI).

Outfit deets:  Target bikini top & La Senza bottoms

Two nights out.

Outfit deets:  (left) Urban Og dress, Aldo wedges & J.Crew necklace  (right) Joe Fresh dress, Aldo wedges & eBay necklace.

 Our night at the Japanese restaurant.

I cut my hand really badly while washing a glass (the glass blew out) two days before our vacation which required a trip to the emergency room and three stitches.  I wasn’t allowed to get it wet (the entire time!) so had to swim around with my hand out of the pool.

Outfit deets:  Rampage hat, Payless shades & Victoria Secret bikini (borrowed).

Dinner time outfits (and can I just say styling your hair in serious humidity sucks.  Every.  Single.  Night).

Outfit deets:  (left) F21 top, Wet Seal shorts, Aldo wedges & Suzy earrings  (right) Ardene top, Sirens shorts, Spring gladiator sandals & Suzy necklace.

Limbo on the beach with my bff.
