It’s only easier coming back from a vacation when you know spring is on the horizon! This past weekend we returned from our family vacation to the Dominican Republic and towards the end of the trip, I had to save spring pictures on my phone as inspiration to come back home haha. I’m thankful we even get the opportunity to travel so I don’t want to complain, though returning to an ice storm and gloomy days is a little hard! Thankfully, I have the warm memories and beach photos to get me through. Here’s the post on everything I was planning to bring on vacation and now here’s what I wore.
