I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day weekend, which normally marks the end of summer. However, (and please forgive me) this post is my desperate attempt to cling to summer for as long as possible. I just got back from Hawaii and wanted to share a bit of the fashion from my trip with you. Resort wear is tricky, because it can be so limiting, only being worn on vacation and then it ends up monopolizing valuable real estate in your closet. So for me, the important thing when shopping for a tropical vacation, is making sure the clothes can also be worn off the island, while having enough beach flair. This is not always an easy balance to find, but is crucial when shopping on a budget!
I love this dress because it combines pleats & ruffles, which make it wonderfully beachy. The dark green also allows the dress to be worn during transition seasons with a fab cropped jacket.
Dress: Hunter Dixon, Shoes: Nine West (last season), Sunglasses: Ray Ban, Watch: Michael Kors, Accessories: Random Assortment
I absolutely love rompers and this one is so great because it is practically a blank canvas and you can take the look in any direction.
Sunglasses are one of the most important accessories, especially when you’re in a tropical location. I love Ray Ban because they are always the original innovator of sunglasses designs. Sunglasses found here.
Romper: BCBGengeretion (found here), Shoes: DVF (last season), Purse: Gigee Marie (similar found here), Accessories: Random Assortment
The sunset is celebrated by ceremoniously lighting all the torches and blowing the conch shell. The wind was not working with us for this picture and my hair almost caught on fire!
