If you’ve never run away and escaped Thanksgiving, you are seriously depriving yourself of a relaxing experience. Thanksgiving is about being thankful and while I am all for being thankful for family, we need to be thankful for ourselves and our ability to explore the world. Which is why I think we all owe it to ourselves to participate in #EscapeGiving at least once. When that concept dawned on me, I ran it by Mister Miami (what I’ve decided we’re going to call my boyfriend), and he totally agreed so we booked the Norwegian Getaway for Thanksgiving 2017. (Best. Decision. Ever.) I know I am late posting this but Summer outfits in December did not seem like an appropriate post.
I basically went on a 7-day fashion show, but that is okay. I take my outfits very seriously in my daily life and I promise to try and feature them more on here and Instagram as well. This was what I wore to embark the ship. My hat was a gift from a friend, but I believe it is from Forever 21. Top is from Prinzzesa Boutique here in Miami (one of my favorite places for statement pieces). Pants are from TJ Maxx and I bought them late in the summer last year. They do stretch out, but nothing shows. Sandals are Jack Rogers Palm Beach Style. I bought on Rue La La with a HUGE discount.
We were the least bit hopeful that we were going to enjoy this Port of Call because we were welcomed by a rainy morning. Apparently that’s the norm in rainforest type islands. We toured 1/4 of the island with a gentleman that drove us around and took us to the local’s spots. We had delicious local fish for lunch.
My hat is from Forever 21 and it’s a tad bit old but fedoras are never out of style. Target has cute options here and Nordstrom has this beauty . My tank top is a dri-fit material tank top from Walmart — no shame or shaming — they’re soft and the most comfortable tanks you’ll have in your life. Walmart has them here for $3 and the color variety is insane. Shorts are Old Navy and I have them in about four different colors. Totally recommend these for tropical vacations because they breathe and they keep you dry throughout the day. You can find them here. Necklace is from Prinzessa Boutique here in Miami. Sandals are Sperry’s Parrotfish sandals and I am MADLY in love with them because they dry up quickly and are little clouds for your feet.
Harvest Caye, Belize
Bikini pictures are not my favorite. I wore over this bathing suit a tank top like the one above but in Hunter Green because we went ZipLining! What an incredible adventure that I 100% recommend. Harvest Caye is a little bit ridiculous in the sense that it’s the company’s private island but they charge you $15 for a drink (even if you have a beverage package) and around $18 for a burger when there are buffets on the ship. Vacations are vacations, but for a 7 day ship this should’ve been included.
Costa Maya, Mexico
We were actually here on Thanksgiving Day which made it even better. In Mexico they were celebrating with us and asking us what exactly and who exactly we give thanks to on Thanksgiving. Interesting conversation to say the least. My dress is from Marshalls which makes it difficult to link it, but if you follow me on Poshmark (prestiffany) you may be seeing it soon. The sandals are also from Prinzessa’s Boutique here in Miami. ASOS has similar ones here and CiciHot (never shopped from this site) has the EXACT same ones for just $7.99.
All in all we really enjoyed the Norwegian Getaway. I took tons of notes so let me know if you’re interested in an in-depth post on the ship and all the great things it has to offer.
