Grand Cayman Island

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week like I did. My bf and I took a little vacation and spent the last 4 days on Grand Cayman Island. It was my first trip there and I had an amazing time! The beaches were beautiful, the water was so warm and clear and the temperature was at a constant 80. I couldn't ask for more! I was too lazy to bust out my DSLR, but here's a few pics of the 7 mile beach from my iphone.
 
This was the first time I ever saw these floating sunbathing stations (not sure what to call these?) in the middle of the ocean. They had fold-able lounge chairs for you to lean back on and a sunken hole in the middle for beer buckets! Whoever thought of this was genius. We spent hours on this thing just laying out, getting into the ocean to cool off and watching schools of fish swim by. Not too far from these floatation devices were man made reefs in pretty shallow water. I'm not a great swimmer, in fact I can barely swim, but it was nice to be able to snorkel and see all the pretty fishes.

[Below] I made this chambray halter top and printed shorts before I left for the Cayman Islands. I wanted something light weight and island appropriate and thought the subtle floral print was just perfect for the occasion!

  5. Ahhh!! Those floating rafts in the ocean would be so much fun! The only thing missing is an umbrella, though. You know me and hiding from the sun. :p I guess I could put sunscreen in the beer bucket and wear a big hat. Very cute DIY for the trip. Love the different blue in the floral print.
