It goes down in the DR. 

Fresh off Miami Swim Week, I headed to another beautiful coastal destination: The Dominican Republic with Modeliste Magazine. I went alongside @racquelnatasha @nicoleissacs @jessimalay @littleblackboots and we stayed at the Hard Rock Punta Cana. Modeliste is a magazine focusing on modern day tastemakers and influencers, and they were kind enough to host us all week!

It was my first time in the Dominican, and the trip ended up being the most perfect wind-down after the madness of Swim Week. Plus, the quick 2-hour flight from Miami was ideal after running around like crazy all week.

And just when I thought the ocean in Miami was the prettiest…the turquoise waters of the DR were unbelievable. I love you, Miami, but the Dominican has everyone beat. I’ve never seen water like that, and I’ve had a lot of time near the coast!

Naturally, we spent most of our time at the beach. They had dreamy white cabanas and hammocks scattered along the sand; it was out of a postcard. I definitely got recharged with the R+R that my body was craving. The resort was all-inclusive so we made sure to take advantage of that while hanging. Can you say endless pina coladas and plantain chips?! Yummmm!

My favorite part of the trip was dinner on the beach for Jessi Malay’s birthday. It was our own personal area with the most gorgeous table setup (there were chandeliers!), a DJ, and a bar, all during a stunning sunset. I wore all white and ended up blending in perfectly with the setting. I hope Jess enjoyed her birthday as much as we did!

It definitely won’t be my last time in the Dominican. Thanks again, Modeliste!
