Growing up, I always admired my mom’s fun collections of clothing from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. She told me she was holding onto all the items because the trends would roll back around, and I could be retro-chic. Sure enough, all of the vintage pieces fit into modern day styles. Starting in high school, I would wear her weird/cool stuff everywhere, and since her name is Janet, we call them Jan-Me-Downs! My favorite Jan-Me-Down is a black concho hat from the late 1980s.

Yep, your favorite elementary school trend is back in full force… no, not slap bracelets (remember those?)… but overalls! Wear ‘em with a floppy hat over a crop tee, a bikini top, a bodysuit, or anything really, because no matter what, you’re guaranteed to look pretty dang adorable.

One afternoon during our Mexican adventure, we drove into the incredibly charming town of Sayulita. Adorable cafes and heladerías lined the cobblestone streets, intermittently dotted with handicraft, textile and artwork shops. The town has a decorative heart theme, which of course ups their cuteness factor tenfold. Coincidentally, local folk textiles use pom-poms on purses and pillows, so my Angie Pom Clutch fit right in!

Hola! I spent the last ten days surfing with my family in Mexico, in a beautiful area called Punta Mita. The town itself is pretty small, with an oceanfront main drag that includes a handful of restaurants and a tiny harbor that is home to about 20 ponga boats. There are several surf spots nearby, including pumping reef breaks and peeling point breaks. Because the surf was so plentiful, and September is off-season, we never ran into any crowds! The fish tacos were AMAZING, and the weather was gorgeous the entire trip, with clear skies and 90 degree turquoise waters. Viva México!
