Happy Tuesday, my dear friends! I felt the whole month of July just went by like a snap and I am still spinning! They say you need a vacation from vacation, it is SO true! Here I am, taking a mental vacation, going back to the time that I walked on white sands and admired blue waters…for less than half hour because it was super hot. 😀 Regardless, it was quite relaxing and I am playing back the sound of ocean waves in my head…ahh…
Knowing we would be seeing beautiful, beautiful, turquoise-colored water, I packed this chiffon hi-lo dress with me, together with statement jewelry made from natural horn and stone. The color of the blue links reminds me of the water of the Caribbean’s as well as Santorini. Although I haven’t been to the latter, the images of pure blue and white Santorini are like symbols of heave to me, one day, I will be there. 😀
One thing I did, probably hard to tell from most pictures, was I belted the dress. It was a A-line design and ultra long for me to wear with flat sandals. Adding a belt not only effectively shorten the dress, it also created a more defined waist line. If you have a midi or maxi length dress, a simple belt can transform it to a shorter dress which gives very different vibe from the original design. Better yet, use a long necklace instead of belt, double the “surprise” and fun!
Thank you very much for reading! If you can pick any place, where would you go for your metal vacation? See you in my next post!
