ok. another hawaii outfit. eventually i'll get to the end of these and be able to show off regular clothes, but i do love cute beach outfits so i can't really complain! plus, tis' the season- so all of you wondering what to wear to the beach, pool, or lake this year, here you go!
i fell in love with this dress when i saw it on the website and wanted so badly to take it to hawaii, so urban philosophy, being the fab company they are, shipped it out to me quick so i could pack it for my trip! it ended up being one of my favorite outfits and i ended up wearing it a couple of times! so here's how i wore this lovely dress from
day <------------------------------ to ----------------------------> night
obviously during the day we were just bumming around the pool and at the beach, so i used this lovely as a cover-up, but i got so many compliments! it is by far the best "flowy - day-dreamy" kind of dress i have found and the pattern is perfect and easy to wear anywhere! i can also tell this will be a definite go-to dress when my belly does finally pop and nothing fits anymore!
p.s. don't mind the no make-up, wild hair happening here- no getting ready to lay around by the pool!
for the "night" wear, i paired the dress with a comfy blazer to go out to dinner. i was initially planning to wear my heels as well, but realized comfort was slightly more important, and heels got a little tricky on the cobblestone roads we would walk around at night- so comfy sandals it was! now the lipstick is another story. it initially didn't look that dark inside, but after taking pictures i realized it was definitely not a hawaii look! it ended up coming off before we went anywhere, but it was an interesting change. i definitely liked the idea of something different and slightly darker, but this was a little too intense for me for a relaxed dinner. alas, it ended up in the pictures so...
