Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been featuring pieces from my Wallis weekend getaway wardrobe. This wardrobe was part of the Miraval and Wallis mom’s weekend getaway prize. Although my magical weekend at Miraval resort is over, I’ll be styling my Wallis wardrobe staples throughout the fall.
Today’s outfit features three of my favorite pieces from the collection – this sheer floral blouse, a lightweight striped open front cardigan and my favorite – the black and stone Juno bag.

Stripes and floral are so made for each other, right?

Back to life, back to reality.
It’s hard to readjust to the normal hectic day-to-day after an experience like we had over the weekend at Miraval Resort. It truly was a blessing in every way. A huge thanks again to all of you for voting and making this incredible experience possible! It was so good to get away for a few days as a couple to refresh and recharge. Here are some highlights from the weekend courtesy of Instagram.
First there were the amazing 360° views.
The view from our casita.
The pool at the Body Mindfulness Center.
View from the spa entrance.
View from the restaurant patio.
Then there was the food. They manage to make an all healthy, portion controlled menu taste like heaven. Everything was so fresh and flavorful. My favorite meals were the scallops, the morning starter omelette and their amazing chicken relleno with green mole. Hubby had venison, rack of lamb and some awesome desserts.
Right after this picture was taken, we heard coyotes off in the distance. I was hoping they weren’t hungry.
Relaxed, happy and well-fed.
Unlimited green juice and smoothies. Yum.
Then there was the tranquility. This is what truly sets Miraval apart. It is one of the most peaceful places on earth. No piped in music, just the sound of waterfalls and nature everywhere you go.

We loved our early morning walks and hikes.
Miraval can be any kind of vacation you want it to be – one of self-discovery and learning or one of total relaxation. It’s totally up to you. There are plenty of activities and seminars to keep anyone occupied. Although Craig and I were more focused on a weekend of downtime, I did take a personal yoga session which was enlightening. We also lounged at the pool, relaxed in the hot tub and took strolls around the resort grounds every chance we got.
The best part – our package included massages and facials at their world class spa. The quality of the staff and treatments was impeccable. We were totally blissed out when we walked out of there.
Standard dress code at the resort is athletic clothes and yoga pants…even in the dining room. You know I was in heaven with that! But a Wallis weekend getaway wardrobe was also part of this amazing prize package. Even though I spent most of my time in yoga pants, I’ll be bringing you photos of my Wallis outfits in the coming weeks.
Here’s a peek at one that I wore for travel.
