Fashion Monday: Dressing for the Honeymoon

Honeymoon Attire Ideas

 

Your honeymoon is a wonderful part of your life to make memories, get closer to your honey and explore a far off place together.  Naturally, you’ll want to look amazing for all the pictures that you’ll take.  Here are some gorgeous pieces to inspire you, no matter where you’re going!

 

We Likey: Yala Designs

 

 

I am so completely in love with Yala Designs!  Their beautiful creations include clothing for children, women and men as well as  items for the home and travel.

Weddings have a reputation for being guiltlessly over-the-top. By the time the honeymoon comes around, you’re ready to relax and just be yourself again. Yala, a newly launched line of buttery-soft, eco-friendly comfort essentials designed by a mother/daughter team of well-travelled brides, has right stuff to have you feeling totally chic in your own skin and ready for whatever adventure comes after the bouquet toss:

Soft Whites for Happy Nights
Yala’s Flirty Lace Nightie and Short Robe  are each made from 100% organically-farmed bamboo fiber. The sumptuous fabrics keep you warm but stay cool to the touch – so you CAN show off a little extra skin. Any night.  I have this one and it is my favorite! It is so soft and comfortable to sleep in!

Something Blue
The Sophie Short Wrap has day-to-evening, plane-to-pool versatility and packs small so you can stay warm and elegant without sacrificing room in the suitcase. If the honeymoon takes place somewhere a bit too rustic for comfort, be sure to take the Double Deluxe DreamSack, a habotai silk sleeping liner for two that offers confidence when travel accommodations don’t.

Always Say Thank You
Gift your wedding party a monogrammed PashBu Scarf in a rainbow of candy colors. A classic, especially one this soft and well made, never goes out of style.  I am a lover of the limited edition ruffled pashbu— so sweet!

Yala designs are made of organically-farmed fibers, naturally stain, wrinkle and odor resistant, and proudly GreenShipped  to your doorstep.

Sophisticated Swimwear for the Honeymoon

 

Just when you thought all the fashion insanity would end with your wedding, you may find yourself (pleasantly) surprised that you will still pull off your glamorous style during your honeymoon.  You’ll take a ton of pictures, so why not look fabulous in each one?

 

If you and your honey are retreating to sandy beaches,  you will love these delicious swimwear selections from Aquarella, Crystal Jin, & Teeny B. Delicate.

Looking for something fun and non-traditional for your honeymoon or mini-moon?  If you’re music lovers, definitely check out Sixthman’s Floating Music Festivals!  Everyone loves long walks on the beach and romantic sunsets, but what about the giant culture of music lovers who want to combine their love of music festivals with a Caribbean vacation?

We Likey: Lilibon

image

 

I have been captivated by the new collections of Lilibon!   Similar to bathing suits from the era of pinup girls and coquettish women, the flirty nature of the Lilibon collection is expressed through the very soft and unique material, hand picked by the designer. The whole collection is made from lycra lace, which allows the swimwear to be simultaneously durable and flirty. The fabric itself comes from a well-established french manufacturer, and the pattern was inspired by lingerie of the 1940’s.

Each style in the collection is cut to flatter women of all body types and personalities. Lilibon’s swimsuits reflect the same sentiments as a woman’s lingerie, sexy, flattering and a well kept secret, except now everyone can appreciate it.

More beautiful pieces from the new black collection debuts this month!  If you love what you’ve seen—feel free to visit their shop and get your sleek on for your honeymoon or next vacay!

Take Me Away: Couples Sans Souci

couples sans souci resort in ocho rios jamaica

 

I must say that I am completely biased with this week’s selection.  It is where Captain America and I renewed our vows and was our first of many trips to the beautiful country that is Jamaica. As a matter of fact—see that little gazebo?  That’s where our ceremony was!

Originally operating as its own resort, Sans Souci in Ocho Rios was purchased by Couples Resorts and added to their collection of beautiful Jamaican resorts.  Everything from their delectable restaurants such as the Casanova (our favorite) to romantic and eclectic lounges like the Balloon Bar, there are so many hidden treasures and fun experiences lying within the gorgeous resort.  Everything is very slow paced, comforting and visually stimulating—perfect for your honeymoon, destination wedding or getaway.
