Happy Memorial Day! In the USA we are so fortunate to live in a country where we are truly free. It’s something that many people don’t really think about and quite often probably take for granted yet your freedom should never be taken for granted.
Thank you to all the courageous service women and men who have fought, and continue to fight, for our great country and our freedom.
Ok this outfit summarized is prints on prints with lots of blue hues combined with a pop of tangerine and the most comfy kicks…completely necessary while traveling!
Basically I’m kicking off a series about our amazing honeymoon which I’m so excited to share with you all!!! Because it was so awesome! Get ready!
We started our honeymoon in Siem Reap, Cambodia! Cambodia is an intriguing country with tons of gorgeous ancient temples, an extremely sad history and resilient people. The people are truly so nice and wonderful! We loved our time in Cambodia and if you’re an adventurous individual who loves to travel then I highly recommend a visit.
A tip though…do not go in April!! It’s literally the hottest time of the year in Cambodia and Thailand (and South East Asia in general). We knew this going into our trip because I had of course researched a ton but we got married in April and wanted to go on a honeymoon right after getting married.
We thought it would be alright…
Now I’ve been to extremely hot places around the world and in the US so I thought that I had experienced heat + humidity but Cambodia’s climate of crazy insane heat + ridiculous humidity is on another level. We’re talking about 100+ degrees and 80% + humidity. Literally you walk outside and start sweating immediately. You basically would be soaked after staying outside for half an hour or so. Romantic right? :)
Luckily I packed accordingly and brought lightweight breathable clothes that made it slightly (?) manageable. I’m pretty covered up because to visit certain temples your arms and most of your legs must be covered. They’re holy places so you need to be respectful. Also, the sun was brutal so these loose insanely comfortable printed sporty pants were my jam. Even if I could have been in a bikini and sandals and/or in a pool all day it still would have been pretty bad. No joke.
One word fashion tip if you’re traveling to Cambodia/Thailand/SE Asia, and actually anywhere tropical in general, kimonos.
I love kimonos so much and brought a few with me which were lifesavers because they’re so sheer and lightweight so they cover your arms (and make you temple/holy place appropriate) but aren’t heavy and hot.
So the only downside to our trip literally was the weather which does play a big part while traveling. We survived though and I still wouldn’t have changed our honeymoon locations for the world :).
xoxo “So happy to be back in my gorgeous Cali climate” Sera :)
p.s. these pics were snapped at one of my favorite temples because the views from above were crazy beautiful, which was used as a burial ground for the King’s family members…if you’re wondering what specific temple this was!
