I had to leave paradise this morning and MAN was that hard. I spent most of the day yesterday and this morning taking in all of the beauty that is the Fairmont Grand Del Mar property in the San Diego area, and for obvious reasons it was very difficult having to leave so soon. The fun had just begun! The Fairmont Grand Del Mar is a five-star resort in every single aspect. In fact it’s rated as Trip Advisors #1 luxury hotel in the United States – which is just one of many accolades actually. But being that we’re heading into the long holiday weekend, which is kind of a signal to the “end of summer”, it felt like an opportune time to bust out the last of my summer purchases.
In 80-90 degrees, a light weight top with very little fabric is always ideal. I’m not one for showing tons of skin, but when you’re on “vacation”, it somehow seems slightly more appropriate. But now that I’ve worn it *and received compliments* I fully plan on wearing it many many more times at home around Los Angeles.
Besides this top, there’s nothing to me that says “vacation” more than a fabulous *Janessa Leone* straw hat. And for whatever reason there seems to be something particularly “vacation-y” about a white straw hat. Straw hats will be my savior this weekend as the temperature continues to climb, and while I’m a bit sad I’ll have to wear them around my usual stomping grounds, at least I got to take some photos at one of the most fabulous places on earth!
Have a great holiday weekend my friends, stay cool!!!
