{Outfit Inspiration} Aqua & White

You guys probably didn’t realize it, but I was actually on vacation last week. Since I’m so anal attentive, I had a few posts scheduled for while I was gone. Mr. Sugarplum was also a little weirded out about me posting a ‘Gone to the Beach’ sign on the blog.

We took a family trip to Sanibel Island, Florida….and had the best time. We got home just in time to start school and of course, return to work. Ugh…I’m definitely in the ‘Post Trip Slump.’

So in an effort to bring a little Sanibel into my fluorescent-filled-day, here’s the inspiration for today’s outfit:

Aqua blue sky with puffs of white cloud and white-tipped waves (I think the dark spots are water or sand on the lens…waaaaaah).

Or let’s strip it a little more bare:
That is a shot of Cayo Costa, an uninhabited island near Sanibel. The beach is a little more stark due to Hurricane Charley in 2004.
I have this dress in several colors and it tends to be my go-to for baby/wedding showers. I wear it with a cardi for work, and like this the rest of the time. I love that the necklace looks like it’s part of the dress.
My view might not be as pretty today, but I can still smell the sea air.

    I love the dress! I thought that necklace was attached to the dress. You would have fooled me if you didn't say something. Very pretty =]

    I am also so jealous of that view. It must have been since a nice day.
