Hello my darling readers (all 40 of you). I’m so sorry for my radio-free silence last week. I’ve been juggling deadlines at the day job and working on a massive package for a fancy lady mag. I also delved into America Profunda to serve as guest, translator and cultural attache for an international wedding. (Enhorabuena Anna y Jose!)
And now, I’ve realized that I’ve only got a week until we set sail around Ibiza. Good thing for my inability to refuse an online sale at J.Crew. Because this morning I received these fabulous vintage-inspired one pieces, absolute musts for those of us who don’t look like Kate, Pippa or that new princess. The ruching hides my tummy flaws and the polka dot print is a bit Talented Mr. Ripley meets old-school Sophia Loren.
I bought a crushable uber wide brimmed hat in the Bahamas this winter that will pair perfectly. And my lovable Target fedora will give the look a little tougher edge.
This one is a little more modern and a bit better for snorkeling, swimming and general running around. I’m excited to wear with my so-old-it-can-walk-by-itself bucket hat and my Cobainian navy cardi for paella on the beach or sunset viewing on deck.

Ahoy from aboard the brand new Disney Dream, a newly launched cruise ship that caters to nearly four thousand passengers. I’m here with my mama checking out the offerings and sailing toward the beautiful Bahamas. We’ll be spending a day in Nassau, a capital port that has served oversize boats since the times of the Spanish conquistadors, and another on a private island on which I intend to splash and swim and sip pina colodas in the warm Caribbean sun.
