Welcome to the Dominican Republic! After spending the weekend in New York and visiting friends including Will, Grace, and Allie, we took a seamless flight from Newark to Puerto Plata. A short later, we arrived to Playa Grande Beach Club, a magical resort with laid-back vibes and luxury interiors on the North coast of the country.

Originally a private retreat for a group of close friends like interior designer, Celerie Kemble, actress, Mariska Hargitay, designer Lela Rose, and others, the utopian vacation spot has transitioned from an exclusive destination to a boutique hotel. Reservations must are made via email, and I thought about booking a trip three separate times, but the dates never worked out.

The resort’s neighbor, the ultra-modern Amanera, is a stark contrast to Playa Grande. We debated between the two places, and we even considered splitting our time between both. However, I’m so thankful that we decided to just stay here the entire time.

When we arrived at our bungalow, I immediately unpacked and put on my swimsuit from Maison du Maillot. Are you familiar with their brand? It’s such a great online destination for resort and beachwear; I fell head over heels for this floral print swimsuit and matching culottes. It has a modern, yet retro vibe!

For our first evening at Playa Grande, I changed into this gorgeous yellow dress. Aren’t you loving the fact the yellow is making such a splash this season? I’m also obsessed with these statement earrings (I also have them in all pink – more in this post).

Stay tuned for more photos from our vacation, and follow along on Instagram via the hashtag #TravelCharades!
