SCENT. One thing I always try to bring back home from my travels is a perfume or scented candle. For me, there’s such a strong connection between memories and scents that just a sniff of a certain fragrance brings me back in an instant. During my trip to Mexico I made sure to stop by the wonderful boutique hotel/perfumery Coqui Coqui (definitely a must if you’re ever in Tulum!) and stocked up on two lovely scents that will keep me daydreaming about Tulum for months. Or well, at least until the bottles run out which might happen pretty soon, these scents are heaven!

BACK. Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know that I’m not dead, but sadly, my computer is.

Fingers crossed that my new computer will arrive soon, I have so many photos to share with you!

Anyway, here’s a bunch of pictures we shot during the first couple of days in Mexico. I’m wearing a 60′s inspired dress (love!) from Emerson Fry’s s/s 14 collection, Céline sunnies and my beloved clutch from Anya Hindmarch. More pictures below!

MEXICO. Sorry for the radio silence guys! I’m currently in beautiful Tulum, Mexico, on a well needed 2 week escape from chilly NY. This place is absolutely magical and I have so many pictures + memories to share with you guys when I get back home. Until then, follow me on instagram @carolinaengman for lots of pictures!

SWEATER LOVE. This raglan knit from Emerson Fry has been a real life saver during my travels these past couple of weeks. I’m a jeans and sweater girl at heart, and this one is definitely as close to perfect as it gets. Super comfy, slightly oversized and made from the softest italian wool you can imagine. Definitely one of my favorite basics!
