A Tropical Vacation… Well the Next Best Thing

Tropical’ish Vacation?

Typically my husband and I are able to do something fun for our girls during the summer. Even when our budget is tight, we try to do something special as far as traveling. This summer is a bit different… For one, we have a new addition to our family. Some of you may know that traveling long distances with new babies can be quite fun right? Not to mention having to pack a million and one things, being trapped on an airplane, or the inconvenience of not having your everyday items at your disposal. I’m stressed just thinking about it! I’ve been there done that, and now know better. Instead of the stress, we’re heading toward a short and sweet destination–a place where we can get our ocean fix, yet also still feel at home.

In July, the family is headed to  Galveston, Texas where we rented a beach front cottage. Alright, I know… Not necessarily paradise, but we do at least get to run our toes through the sand, play at the beach, and pretend that we own our own little beach house. Ha!

SheIn Tropical Wear

When it comes to summer vacation wear, I like to find pieces that are trendy, yet also super affordable. However, because theSasha Agent wearing tropical cami dress with tassel earrings summer season is so short, and because many pieces are so trendy–you’ll find that they quickly become a thing of the past. Right now palm leaves, fruit, and tropical prints are all the rage. My go to online retailer SheIn is packed with affordable and trendy vacation wear like today’s dress and the pieces I’m featuring on my wishlist below. 

Even though I may not have my ideal beach front setting overlooking blue tropical waters. I will at least have the next best thing–an ocean, adorable beach cottage, my amazing family, and tropical ready clothes.

Happy Shopping Loves!

Travel Diaries: Grand Canyon & New Mexico

Blogger Sasha Agent and husband re-stating vows at Grand Canyon for anniversary The Grandest of Them All

One of my goals in life is to visit all of the famous national parks in the United States. The summer before last was Yosemite, and this summer it was all about the Grand Canyon. I’ve heard that this natural wonder of the world is one that you must see with your own eyes, and that pictures don’t do it justice–I found this to be 100% true.

 

Reunited at the Grand Canyon

We always try to meet up with my sisters and family at least once a year. This time, we made a plan to meet at the Grand Canyon. We stayed on the amazing KOA Williams campgrounds in a luxury cabin (I’ve got the deets on this spot coming soon).

So you most likely saw part one to this road trip, where we started our journey in West Texas and continued on to Albuquerque, New Mexico. On this part of the trip, we picked up in New Mexico, and hiked up a volcano and ice cave. We finally made it over to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, which is where my husband and I restated our vows at sunset for our four-year anniversary. The next day, we went rafting inside of the Canyon, off the Colorado River. With the kids, we got to experience a fun safari style car ride at Bearizona with bears and wolves. And finally, on the way back to Texas, we stopped for a quick swim in the Blue Hole in Santa Rosa, New Mexico (click here for the Snapchat videos to these experiences).

Road Trip Diaries: From West Texas to Albuquerque

Blogger Sasha Agent with husband | Tie necklaceThe Ultimate Family Road Trip

At the start of July, the family and I took a road trip through the southwest. I was actually dreading the thought of traveling with a jam-packed car–in addition to a potty training toddler.  But it all turned out to be pretty amazing. I felt way less stressed in the privacy of our own car, as opposed to a public and cramped airplane. Plus, our bonding time was priceless. Our final destination was the South Rim of the Grand Canyon–we were scheduled to meet up with my sisters and their families from my hometown of Sacramento. However, leading up to that, we had plenty of time to explore and enjoy both West Texas and Albuquerque, New Mexico. My husband has an Aunt and Uncle with a breath-taking ranch in West, Texas. Our girls got the opportunity to sample that ranch life for a bit–it was pretty amazing. Albuquerque just seemed to be a nice central point in between West Texas and the Grand Canyon–so we stayed the night, and even got to enjoy a local outdoor jazz concert.

Travel Diaries: San Antonio & Austin Date Night

Blogger Sasha Agent on a date night in San Antonio

The Non-Existent Date Night

So, I’ve heard that this whole date night thing is a must for a marriage. Well, to be honest, my husband and I don’t get out much. Now don’t get me wrong, I would love to have consistent and kid free getaways more often, but we don’t really have the necessary resources available to us–like time and money for example. Maybe if I dropped my shopping habit… ha!

San Antonio Talk

After our amazing Grand Canyon vacation, my husband had his annual coaching school which was located in San Antonio, TX this year. My husband and I thought this would be a great opportunity to getaway for a quick date night–staycation style. Luckily, my mom agreed Sasha Agent wearing pom pom crochet dress on a date nightto watching our girls for a full day and night–the first time we would ever be gone together overnight. Other than our honeymoon, we couldn’t think of a time when we actually had a full day to ourselves–kid free.

The drive to San Antonio from Dallas isn’t so bad. It’s around 4 1/2 hours, which is perfect for doing what we rarely get a chance to do–talk and laugh. I felt like we were giddy teenagers away from our parents for the first time.
After arriving and checking in to our hotel, we went straight for the River Walk for a boat tour and amazing Italian food right off of the water. I literally almost forgot we were in Texas!

Sasha Agent wearing a date night maxi dressOn this evening I wore a red crochet mini dress with pom-pom trim by SheIn and received so many sweet compliments. As we explored, I wore my rose gold metallic slides (see similar here, here, and here), and for dinner, I let my hair down and laced up my nude heels by Steve Madden.
The next day, we got to do just a little more exploring in the Downtown area, so I was sure to wear something a bit festive. I wore my gorgeous Christin Michaels maxi dress as we had lunch outside the Alamo and walked the beautiful streets of Downtown San Antonio.

Austin Love

After lunch, it was about that time to head back towards Dallas, but we knew Mexican off of
South Congress in Austin, TX was a must! This past spring, my hubs took us to Austin for a nice family getaway. We immediately fell in love with South Congress, so we definitely wanted to go back for a quick andBlogger Sasha Agent wearing off the shoulder top with bell sleeves date night early dinner at a fun Mexican spot. Here I wore an off the shoulder bell sleeved top, also by SheIn (see here in a chambray/denim as well) with distressed denim shorts (DIY–see similar here and here) from Nordstrom.

After a lot laughing, a little flirting, and a lot of talking (mostly about missing our girls) we decided that we deserved to invest more time in our four-year long marriage. Easier said than done I’m assuming. Well, if you have the chance for a quick date night/mini staycation with your significant other, take it! Take the time to simply talk and laugh–you two are worth the investment.

Happy Thursday my friends!

Travel Diaries: San Francisco Style

Blogger Sasha Agent wearing a gingham dress in San Francisco

Home Sweet Home

This past weekend I got to host a cheerleading clinic in my hometown of Sacramento, California. However, before getting to work, I got to spend a little leisure time with my dad and step mom in the beautiful city of San Francisco.

Now, if you’ve ever seen this amazing place–you would know that the weather is somewhat different. San Francisco is known for having its own sub climate, and it can be drastically cooler than the surrounding cities. When we arrived, it was 67 degrees–a nice break from the heat in the valley. I also thought this would be the perfect time to test out some of my early fall finds.

San Francisco Fall TeaserBlogger Sasha Agent in street fashion | San Francisco

With this whole Fall Nordstrom Anniversary sale going on, I thought the cool San Francisco temps would be the ideal place to test out my new Fall Nordstrom find–my patchwork oversized cardigan by Topshop. I wore my cardigan both street and chic style with just a simple swap of the shoes (my Adidas and pointed heels). Once you get away from all of the fog, the temps warm up a bit, which was perfect for my adorable Christin Michaels blue and white gingham sundress a la Zappos.

Blogger Sasha Agent wearing a color blocking dress in San FranciscoMy family and I had fun enjoying the sites, like checking out the painted ladies, the Golden Gate Bridge, strolling the botanical gardens, and finally a picnic in Golden Gate Park. Oh, and I couldn’t pass up Chinese food in China Town! For dinner I wore my Christin Michaels black and white color blocked dress, also a Zappos find.

Check out my pictures below to see how I wore each look! You can shop the post at the bottom for direct links!

Have a beautiful week!
