One of the many very special things about our Airbnb in Havana, Cuba, was the beautiful rooftop terrace right above our apartment. Outdoor space is very important to me, especially when I travel, but this is actually the first time I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying a rooftop terrace right where I’m staying! On the first day, we were welcomed here with mojitos. Does it get any more perfect than that?!
The terrace was perfect because of one thing: the stunning view. Not only where there hilltop homes and the ocean, but right below on the street was a line of classic cars – the most quintessential Cuba thing! Of course, my trip wasn’t all about luxury, but it was nice to experience that little slice of heaven during the trip.
For one of our daily cocktail hour hangouts, I wore this stunning blue and white maxi dress. I’ll be honest, it was too hot to actually walk around and explore in this dress, but it was perfect for an evening on the roof (in the shade, of course). I got the dress specifically for this trip though, so I had to wear it. I love the way it flows and the off-the-shoulder makes it on trend for the summer. I love the cut – it’s so comfy and the stretch in the chest area makes it feel secure.
It was too long to wear with flats, so I went with my wedges. I brought them in case I needed heels during the trip, but this was the only time I didn’t wear flats the whole time. I probably could have tied a little knot in the dress to make it short enough for little ole me, but sometimes you just want to dress up a little bit, you know?
