Hotel La Semilla


what I’m wearing: white blouse, light denim shorts, yellow mini boxy bag, pink round sunglasses



Rustic touches with an air of curated luxe, Hotel La Semilla opens up to a beautiful tiled floor leading to an oasis garden filled with palm trees and a scattering of tables in amongst the greenery. It’s a perfect escape from the lively streets of Playa del Carmen. Having first heard about it on Ohh Couture, I added this little chic B&B to my list of places to see on our morning of exploring Playa; we actually ended up stumbling across it by chance on our search for a cute cafe to eat. The restaurant is, unfortunately, only for guests of the hotel, as we sadly discovered after a peek inside, which was a huge shame as I don’t think I have ever seen a more beautiful outdoor seating area! A true bloggers’ dream.

Outfit-wise, I chose something simple and comfortable in the form of this white loose-fitted blouse and a pair of denim cutoffs, both of which are old, but I have tried to find similar ones for you. During my stay in Mexico, I found my outfits to be more colourful than usual in a bid to experiment a little more with patterns and brighter palettes as a way of getting back in touch with my old style when I was a student. Despite enjoying mixing prints and colours, it was quite refreshing to wear more minimal pieces to change things up, but I added my current favourite yellow bag and pink sunglasses for a splash of colour and a more personal touch to the outfit. It’s nice to wear something light and breezy in the heat!

Are you also drawn towards prints and colours more when you are abroad?

    I’ve been drawn to patterns a lot more recently, trying to mix up my wardrobe especially as I’m going on holiday in a few weeks! I love those sunglasses, they look amazing!

    You look stunning! I’m definitely drawn to brighter colours and more daring prints and accessories when I’m on holiday, I love completely throwing myself into a holiday outfit and wearing things I wouldn’t usually wear!

      Aww thank you so much! Yesssss it feels much easier abroad, doesn’t it? It’s a great opportunity to experiment a little, especially when you have little suitcase space and have to get creative with outfits! Thank you for reading and for your lovely comment <3

    This combo is so elegant and sleek. I love the look of that blouse too. I am still on the search for the perfect blouse (that isn’t see through haha) xxx

      Aw thank you! It’s such an old blouse but I really like the lightweight material. Since getting older, fabric is the number one thing I look for hahaha which doesn’t sound too exciting, I know! It’s so hard to find ones that aren’t see through, isn’t it??
