I decided I wanted to try something a little out of my comfort zone when I ordered this cutout dress. I mentioned in my spring haul that when I first tried it on, Nick gasped and was like, “uhhhhh what are you wearing??” I would never wear anything with cleavage or cutouts in my day-to-day, but hey it worked for me on New Years Eve so why not on vacation right? This dress will be so fun for summer parties and events in the city. It reminds of a look you’d see one of the cast members on “Revenge” wearing. My grandma is obsessed with the show and I totally binge-watched it with her on Netflix when I was in Florida. Now all I need is friend with a Hamptons house to invite me for a visit so I can re-wear this outfit!
I wish I had more photos to share from Sanibel Island! It’s easily become one of my favorite destinations every time I visit my grandparents at their house in Florida. It reminds me of a Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard – only in the South! The cute little shops and restaurants, bike paths and sea shell-covered beaches make it so hard to leave.
I swear I have my reasons though for not doing a full recap… 1) Bringing a camera to the beach is not only risky, but taking photos is TOUGH in the bright sun. 2) Nick literally would’ve left me stranded on the beach if I tried to turn our beach day into an entire blog shoot. As much as I love my photographer, his patience can wear thin when it comes to the “technology” (as my grandparents call it). As a blogger, and even working in PR, social media and just media in general is such a big part of my everyday life. I’m used to being connected 24/7, but sometimes I forget how exhausting it might be for another person to be around someone who so often is taking photos/responding to emails/posting to social media.
So I’m happy I was able to at least get these photos of my new bikini! I always opt for strapless bikini tops (who has time for tan lines) and I love the print on this fluttery one. I’m so excited to wear it throughout the summer, starting with a vacation to Puerto Rico in May!!! So so excited.
