An Island State Of Mind

Dress - Island Company, Wedges - Nine West, Hat - Frock Candy, Ring and Bracelet - JewelMint, Pompom Cuff - JewelIQ

Justin and I have been in full vacation planning mode lately. With our one year anniversary in May (where the heck did time go?) and our summer trip to Italy on the horizon, I've been searching the web for some vacation appropriate items. First on the checklist, shopping for a tropical friendly wardrobe, which offered a sweet escape during the cold winter days. Over Christmas I found this amazing white sleeveless dress from Island Company and have been waiting for the temperature to rise to pull it out. The tuxedo style collar and pintuck details keep it classic and structured, without making it too dressy. So when Justin suggested taking a trip to Santa Barbara over the weekend I knew exactly what would be at the top of my suitcase.

  41. Hola! I like your hat; I'm going to Fiji next month and I've been attempting to find a nice sun hat, but then I 'm worried about crushing it in my luggage! I'll have to see if I can find one similar to the one you're wearing in your photos.
