COQUI COQUI

In addition to swimming in cenotes and experiencing in-Mexico-only adventures I had one big request on our to do list- visit Coqui Coqui-a hotel, perfumery, spa and restaurant on the beach. We almost didn’t fit it in our busy schedule but on the last day, just hours before our flight, we got in a visit.

The building is a unique kind of rustic. Definitely has Mayan vibes with the stone work with added minimal chic touches in the decor and furnishings.  I really like the flat roofs and linear walls. The owners did a fantastic job adding just the right amount of details while keeping it simple.

Even outside the door to the perfumery you can smell all the beautiful scents and inside it’s awesome, so many flavors mixing. Not overwhelmingly just right.

We smelled each scent and picked out the coco coco for both myself and his mom. Runner ups were- tobacco, orange, agave.

I mostly went with coco coco because I wanted to be reminded of the ocean and beach every time I wore it!

I just had to have one of these pitches and went with the smaller one on the right. The glaze looks solid but when you look close it’s somewhat crackled, like it’s vintage. Currently sitting on the counter top just being all cute and chubby.

Wearing my trusty Stetson, Ace + Jig top, Anthropologie pants, Birks and Le Spec shades

The hotel actually only has 6 rooms which fill up fast. Man, just looking through these images I’m re-inspired!

Have a good weekend!!

FREE PEOPLE | AVALON

Step inside the doors of the third Free People location at the new Avalon in Alpharetta!  Along with visiting West Elm in the previous post I popped over to await the grand opening of FP.  Everyone in line was so excited to see the decorations since we all know that FP merchandising is always dreamy!  Of course we were also pumped about the clothing and accessories-the Fall/Winter collection features lots of lace, stars and sparkly details. Check out my favorite details—

Really happy for Alissa, the store manager, and her team-they did a fantastic job pulling it all together!
