Resort Chic

flowy purple dress / Southern Style / lace up sandals

This dress has been a style experiment for me. When I saw it online, the material appeared to look dressier, and I purchased it for an outdoor garden wedding. When I took it out of the box, it was not as impressing, but I still loved the open back detail and flowy shape, perfect for a hot summer wedding. I styled it with heels, dressy jewelry, and bright lips and when I walked out the door, I liked the combo. In photos from the wedding, however, I was unimpressed with the ensemble, and I wished I had chosen something differently.

I didn't want to give up on the dress, though, so I decided to style it a little differently, this time with lace up sandals, messy hair, and more chunky jewelry. This time, I loved it a lot more, and going forward, I'll wear this as more of a casual dress. It's the kind of dress that's perfect for vacation, for a dinner by the beach or even thrown over a swimsuit. It's also perfect for our upcoming trip, so I'll be packing it in my suitcase for sure. P.S. I first wore these sandals in this post, and they are seriously the greatest. They come in a variety of colors, and I know they'll get so much wear over the next few months of summer.

  8. The reality of the situation is drastically unique. The Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa and Beach Resort is basically a totally best class resort, that simply happens to be Couples Only, and Sandals. belize resort
