Sandals: Maurices – find them HERE
Nails: Orly ‘Rage’ – find HERE
I’m back, but I can’t tell you how badly I wish I was currently still sitting on the beach in Maui. Maui is absolutely beautiful, paradise (just look at the gorgeous flowers in the background!!). I had such a fantastic time, relaxing, swimming in the ocean, sitting in the sand and just enjoying my surroundings. It was by far the most perfect way to enjoy some R&R with the family.
I took pictures of most of the outfits I wore while I was there (which I will be sharing), but this outfit really sums it up: dress, sandals, and minimal jewelry. The warm weather was fantastic, and it was so nice being able to indulge in bare arms and legs and not having to stuff myself into coats and leggings and thick socks (yes, it snowed the day we came home).
When I received this dress from August Wrinkle, I knew it would be making the trip to Maui with me. This is one of those pieces of clothing that when you see online you love, but in person is SO MUCH BETTER. I can’t tell you how gorgeous this dress is in person, as pictures just don’t do it justice. The color is perfect and the sweet, chevron, knit pattern adds a unique touch. This is my first dress with an open back, which I love, but what’s even better? The built in bra feature, that makes worrying about bra straps showing through the open back, non-existent. As for jewelry, I wore this Rire Boutique necklace(find it HERE) in a recent post, and knew it was the perfect companion for this dress. I love the peach and mint color combo (I just noticed that one of the pieces to the necklace is turned backwards…ugh…definitely an eyesore, sorry guys!) I threw on a pair of basic sandals, grabbed my jean jacket, and headed out to for dinner and shopping in paradise.
