Katrina’s Fashionable Vacation to Mexico!
by Katrina Mitzeliotis
After Fashion Week and awards season come to an end, it’s the perfect time to get away and relax—and that’s just what I did! I headed to the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun for a few days, where I enjoyed the weather and a slew of activities. While packing can be a pain, I was excited to get away and show off some of the spring trends that I haven’t been able to break out just yet.
Our first night, we went to dinner. I opted for a floral strapless dress with an asymmetrical hemline. Florals are everywhere this season, and I love how you can easily take a floral dress and dress it up or down. The strapless style and the gathering under the bust is so flattering on a variety of shapes, and it really enhances my waist.

Day 2: Sail fishing!
On our second day, we were up bright and early for sail fishing. I kept it casual, throwing on a white belted cover-up over my striped bathing suit. A tribal beach bag completed my look. Whether I’m getting all dressed up or keeping it casual, I almost always cinch in my waist to enhance my shape. Belting adds a nice touch to formal dresses—and that’s exactly what you can achieve with this sash.
On our second night, we headed over to the exquisite Le Blanc hotel for a cocktail party, so I wanted to get a bit more dressed up. Spring is all about color, and my one-shoulder dress exhibits this trend perfectly! I color blocked with my accessories, pairing the dress with bright yellow pumps and a blue envelope clutch. I swept my hair to one side to keep the focus on the frock.
This vibrant one-shoulder dress is perfect for a cocktail party or summer wedding.

Night 3: At the Enrique concert!
On our third night, we headed over to an Enrique Iglesias concert. Since I knew we would be standing, I ditched my pumps and opted for flat sandals and a printed dress. I accessorized with my blue envelope clutch. An unexpected pop of color is a great way to add a trendy spring vibe to any outfit—even if you’re heading out for a more formal occasion.

We left Cancun bright and early, and I kept my outfit comfortable for the flight home. A flowing striped skirt that I love to wear on lazy summer days got a fresh update, thanks to my bright sleeveless top. Tangerine seems to be everywhere this season, and I love how it highlighted my tan! A long sweater kept me warm on the plane, while my hat concealed my hair from the night before.
This bright shade is perfect for prom or your next event—nothing says summer like a vibrant color!
