A beautiful 70 + degree day out on the bay near the tidelands in this oh so versatile Fiji maxi from vacaystyle.com. Sometimes the best vacay is when you’re meeting with old friends who you haven’t seen in a while and turns into a Staycay around the bay. If you’re like me and you love getting dressed each day and accessorizing, you’re meeting with friends you haven’t seen in a while and you have a place picked out to meet and have lunch-here’s some tips on how to get yourself together:
1. Pick your outfit out the night before. That way you can pop up in the morning and relax a bit without the stress of what to wear. I opted for this versatile Fiji maxi skirt and halter top, that I can literally mix and match several different ways. (I can pair the skirt with a tank, a tee shirt, a sweater or a sweatshirt and add a belt. I can pair the halter top with a pair of jeans, shorts a skirt and a variety of different shoes and sandals-seriously amazing, right?) Just one of the many reasons the Vacay Style is a perfect place to shop if your heading out of town-(less packing-eeeeeeeek, yes!!) or if you’re simply staying in town but want some fun pieces that will pair well with many pieces you already have hanging in your closet!
2. Pick your accessories. Lay them out with your outfit. With this look, I paired this beautiful Pegasus necklace, and the candy wrap bracelet from stelladot.com and the gold leaf hinged bracelet from Chloe+Isabel which you can purchase through theeverythinggirl.com I also decided to go with this vintage straw bag, that was my great grandmothers from the 50’s and a fun straw hat.
3. Prep your locks. Before I go out, the night before, I wash my hair and leave a hydrating overnight conditioning mask, like the night repair from S factor. That way in the morning my hair is prepped and ready to go for the use of a blow dryer, curling iron or flat iron. For this outing I sprayed some salt spray from Tigi and did some beachy waves-exactly the look I was going for and perfect for summer.
It turned out to be a beautiful day watching wind surfers and hang gliders and having a picnic on the beach along the bay trail.
Thank you to Elizabeth from Vacaystyle.com for the lovely handwritten note-I love those simple but special sentiments. It means a lot when people take time out of there day and busy schedules to say thank you!
