St. Barths Vacation Diary

Hi chicas!  Sorry for the sporadic posting schedule lately.  I've been extremely preoccupied with all the projects we have going on around the house, and the blog has kind of taken a back seat.  #Bloggerfail.  I'm sure things will be back to normal in the next couple of weeks, but until then I'm like a full throttle mad woman over here.  Must complete project.  Must complete project.  Must complete project. ;)  Please tell me I'm not the only one who gets like this....

Anyhoo, today I thought I'd finally get around to posting a few of our babymoon pictures.  We spent 6 nights in paradise {St. Barths} and did a whole lot of nothing while we were there.  It was probably one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever taken.  We got massages, layed on the beach, did a little snorkeling, went to lunches, took long walks on the beach {oh so romantico lol}, napped, went to dinners, talked about the baby nonstop, napped some more.....you get the idea.  It was seriously so peaceful and relaxing.  Exactly what a babymoon should be like!

Below are a few of my favorite pictures from our trip, with details to what I wore while we were there {basically a bikini the whole time!}, and where we stayed.  Hope you enjoy! xx






That water!  We flew around 3 hours from Miami to St. Maarten and then took a small commuter plane for the 10 minute journey from St. Maarten to St. Barths.  Funny story: When I was boarding the teeny little commuter plane an airline attendant stopped me and informed me that I needed to fill out a waiver because I was pregnant.  I played totally dumb and said "Ummmm I'm not pregnant".  The look on his face was priceless!  Of course I immediately told him that I was just joking and we all had a good laugh, but it was pretty hilarious!





Checking in at our chic hotel, Cheval Blanc.





Adam surprised me and upgraded us to a beach front suite for our stay.  It was so beautiful, and I loved the French Provence style of decor; think white linen everything, distressed whitewashed woods, and shabby chic accents.





We also had a private infinity pool on our balcony, which is where we spent the majority of our time.





But first, let me take a bumpie ;)  Wearing a sarong from Ondademar that's sadly sold out everywhere.  Last seen here.





Our hotel was located on beautiful Flamands Bay which was really quiet and low key, but also  extremely centralized.  It was a quick 10 minute drive to get to the hot spots like Eden Rock & Nikki Beach, and about a 15 minute drive to do some shopping in Gustavia.





Cheval Blanc also had beautiful garden bungalows where these guys roamed around freely!





This is what we did basically all day!  Adam in the shade reading a book, me sunning it up {not pictured: my word search book that I always travel with.  It's a vacay obsession of mine!}





Headed out to dinner on our first night.  Dress / Clutch / Sandals





Dinner at Bonito was amazing.  Highly recommend!





The entrance to the hotels pool.







Ice cream in Gustavia after a bit of shopping.  I'm wearing Essie 'Cajun Shrimp' on my nails {it's a great summer color and is perfect with a tan!}.





Lunchin' at Eden Rock.  Clutch / Sunglasses {my new fave!}









Ok, so I debated whether I should upload this picture or not since my belly looks huuuuuuuge in this pic {I swear it's not this big, I think it's a combo of all the water I drank to stay hydrated and the angle lol!}, but I love this comfy maxi dress and have to share!  Dress / Hat / Necklace {on sale!}





Keeping it clean with egg whites, oatmeal, and an iced coffee at breakfast.





Wind swept.





This bathtub was to die for!  





We went snorkeling on this particular day and had so much fun!  Wearing: Cover up / Hat {linked above} / Sunglasses / Beach tote









I absolutely love this picture and want to have it framed!  Wearing: Bikini / Sunglasses





This one also deserves a frame :)





I told you guys in a previous post how much I loved this dress.  It's so effortless, and the perfect maternity maxi for summer!  Get it here.





Lunch on the sand {oh hi Adam!}.





Not a bad view ;)





Sorry for all the bump pics, but I'm obsessed!









Last day in paradise wearing: Dress / Sandals / Hat & Necklace {linked above}





Sad to say goodbye to this view, but it's always so nice to go home to our little muffins {who give us the best hello kisses when we walk through the door!}.




Where We Stayed:

Cheval Blanc St-Barth




Have a great day!  Thanks for reading :)
