Cocktail Class in Cabo

After a few hours exploring San Jose del Cabo, we headed back to our hotel for a course on cocktail making at the beach bar! The perfect little happy hour before heading back to the room to get ready for dinner. I had picked up this colorful little straw bag that day and couldn’t wait to wear it… It paired perfectly with my fun, fringe earrings! I put on some bright pink lipstick to pull it all together (and to make me look a little less exhausted from exploring the cobblestone streets of downtown in a walking boot!) and kept the rest of my outfit pretty relaxed and minimalistic in black and white.

I got this cute little straw tote at Shima Shima in downtown San Jose del Cabo! I found two very similar styles online here & here. In my opinion, you can never have too many straw totes! I use them as handbags all spring and summer long… They’re the perfect beach, pool and picnic bags… And they’re perfect for vacations, too! Here are a few colorful favorites I’m loving…

I also love this one and this one, but having some technical difficulties getting them to show up in the scroll bar above!

PS: My tee, boyfriend shorts, and sandals are all from Old Navy! Score 35% off your purchase today only with code ENJOY! Here are a few things I’ve got my eye on…

FYI: So many people ask about the camel cardigan I wear all the time on Snapchat and it’s Old Navy from last August. This one is almost identical in shape though… Come in black and ivory!

These earrings are THE CUTEST, aren’t they?! They’ve been so popular that they actually sold out, but you can get on the waitlist right here. (Update: back in stock here!) Highly recommend! As you can probably tell, I’ve been super into statement earrings as of late… Here are a few more affordable favorites!

We learned to make a few different drinks at the class, which was a fun way to chill out after a day of exploring! Melissa and I ordered some chips & guac down to the beach and relaxed for a while with our cocktails before getting ready to catch the sunset. We loved how the Paradisus had (optional) activities throughout the day and night to switch things up a bit.

Can you spot my boot on the beach chair up to the left?! 😂 Had to take it off so it wouldn’t get sandy! (And obviously so the photos turned out a bit more aesthetically pleasing… haha)

You may have spotted it in a few of my posts from Cabo, but my Canon G7X is my favorite lightweight camera for travel! If you’re looking for something that’s easy to toss in your bag on the go, it’s great for video, too, and also does really well in low-lighting situations (like dinner).
