Dress: Who What Wear x Target / Tank: Alternative Apparel / Jeans: Old Navy
Necklaces: Gorjana (long/short) / Shoes: Jack Rogers / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

Like I mentioned last week, I really saw this dress as a super versatile piece that could be worn multiple ways all summer. I definitely see it coming with me on my trip back to the east coast next month — I only have a small amount of room in my suitcase (I rarely check my bag) and I’ll be there for 10+ days, so I’ll need to maximize my space with items that can be mixed and matched!  I’ll definitely be dressing it up at night for dinners, and down during the day for shopping and trips to the Beach Plum for lobster rolls!

Here I’ve opened up the dress and removed the belt to make it into a long flowy vest to wear over white jeans. I think it would look equally great with darker skinny denim, and maybe even some flares. I’m now debating trying out this look with a pair of jean shorts… I’ll let you know!

Fishtails, Family, and a Walk on the Beach

Beach_Night 5

The other night we got together for Doug’s grandmother’s birthday.  She lives right on the beach so almost every trip up to her house ends with a nice walk along the water.  The kids jump in the ocean and play touch football while the rest of us sit on the sand and take in the amazing view.
